~ my husband was off to the desert adventuring, while i stayed here at home. a cold wind was blowing, keeping owen and i indoors. maybe it was the near hurricane winds that prompted the flurry of activity. we got so much done! (well, owen mostly offered support by watching me from his doggy bed with one sleepy, yet interested eye.)
~ i'm pleased that:
the tree was trimmed
outdoor lights strung (once the wind died down)
outside cleaned and swept after wild wind
inside cleaned (laundry too!)
marketing was done
day thirty five of eating to wellness, so far i've had no caffeine, alcohol, sugar, bread, pasta,
baked goods, dairy, poultry, meat and anything else that falls in these categories for over a month.
i went to africa two years ago, came home with a mystery ailment, and am still searching for a
cure. even if the africa bug doesn't leave, the rest of me will be super healthy.
recieved two packages in the mail, one from emily and one from andrea, thank you so much.
made one pot of chicken soup for my sick girl who was at her home in bed. delivered soup, and animal crackers, for good measure, too :)
~ i added one photo in this post twice, a thing was missing from the first i wanted to show. i see it's still
partially missing. i might have been lazy about one or two things this weekend (no photo do overs)
~ the ornaments on my table, the fox, hen, bluebird, toadstool and teacup are from
julie whitmore, potter, artist. she owns a brilliantly creative heart inside a kind and humble (super talented) body. julie's art can be found here and here.
~ a recipe for you...
almond bread (shown above with sesame butter)
1 lb. almonds, raw and organic
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup water, carbonated
preheat oven to 350 degrees. blend almonds (a small amount at a time) in food processor
or blender to fine texture. place in bowl and add remaining ingredients.
pour into olive-oiled bread pan and bake 1 hour. can stay fresh for over a week in an airtight
container in refrigerator.
the bread really is very yummy and makes up for no cake or cookies. almost.
