Let them eat cake...

So lately I have been insanely busy. There just seems to be no way around it. I've been working and attending picnics and dinners at family and friends. It has been a whirlwind. I've seen the plumbing, heating, and electrical guys all in a two day span. All the news is good (read: not too expensive) and we are moving along toward our goal. I've made three cakes/pies this week and all were successful and delicious. I like cake... The best of the bunch was a delicious peach confection topped with a creamy cloud of goo that was reminiscent of tapioca pudding. Yum. I also made a glorious blueberry and mango cheezecake and even took a picture of it to share with you darlings. Hope you are all well and sending you massive love and light! Peace.

Ummm, weeeellllll....

So basically I have been absent from here, still haven't finished the kitchen fixing up, still haven't put together my altar, and still haven't dealt with all of the red tape... So, ummm, I am basically totally behind, have a pile of new things to attend to and still have to finish up last weeks stuff. OK fine. And the funny thing is that I don't even mind. It'll all get done sooner or later. And probably sooner. Besides, Felix and I got to have the whole weekend together, alone. We went for two great LONG hikes, and I only had to wear my flip-flops on one, as I managed to forget my sneakers. A big huge thanks to my Mom, who took Lincoln to her friends house for two whole, quiet, relaxing days. A blast was had by all. So I am happy, rested, contented and ready to get my rear in gear. Just you watch.
So much love and blessings to all of you darling beings.

Red tape...

I spent most of today working out the kinks in my massage therapist licenses in 2 states as well as getting a handle on my national certification... I am not one who loves paperwork and I don't have the most respect for state and regulatory agencies simply because I don't think they are usually at all effective in regulating whatever it is that they set out to regulate and they cost me hundreds of dollars each year and make me fill out so many stupid forms... How does filling out a form and paying $300 each year keep the great state of Florida free from hookers masquerading as masseuses? It doesn't. Besides, I don't think many hookers would bother going to school for at least 600 hours and filling out aforementioned forms and papers and don't forget paying the big bucks! There are NO massage police people! I don't even know why I bother to play their red tape game except that I need to to get insurance (I know, don't even get me started). Anyhow, I feel better now. Thanks for listening to me rant.

So because of my day of red-taping I didn't finish "operation kitchen clean up".
Maybe if I had made my Goddess altar BEFORE I attempted all this I would have had better luck... When will I learn?

The stuff in the dehydrator was disappointing, to me at least, Felix and my Mom loved the sesame bread, though. The chocolate cookies were good but didn't get crunchy. The flax crackers are plain and slightly boring but I wanted them like that so I could make tomato sandwiches with miso mayo on them. Yum.

I'll be back to my positive self tomorrow, promise.
Love to you all and remember to keep your paperwork straight.

Back in Action!

So Lincoln has recovered... He woke up this morning all happy and healthy and energetic and I was so relieved! Thanks you so much for all of your healing love vibes... Very effective, they were.
I am overhauling and raw-ifying the kitchen today- ONCE AND FOR ALL! I have been putting it off because when the kitchen in the healing center is done I will be bringing most of the raw food appliances, etc. down there... Which will effectively mean that I have to do the kitchen overhaul twice, but whatever... It needs to be done. Every time I open the cabinet doors I see all sorts of "cook me!" food items and then I self sabotage so they are out of here! So hopefully I will have some new pictures of my resurrected, and now raw, kitchen for you all tomorrow. Besides I need a place to set up my Gayatri alter and the kitchen is always my preferred place. I don't know why, but this just seems to be the way I like it! Plus I think I am going to create some sort of Superfoods area to remind me to eat them and to energetically charge them with some crystal vibes. I have a feeling they will appreciate that!
Love to you all til tomorrow!
PS- it is so humid here that the stuff in the dehydrator is STILL not done... Hopefully, I will have a review of all that for you tomorrow.

Purple day, today...

My little prince is feeling a little under the weather... Strange thing for him to do. He doesn't usually feel ill. I'm sure he will be well soon, but some love vibes from the Universe (and you, too, of course!) sure would help!
I went outside to take some pictures because it has been sort of misty/hazy today and I thought it would be a good effect for the photographs. So I noticed as I was loading the pictures into the computer, practically everything I took a picture of was purple! Amethysts, hydrangea (not even usually purple, BTW), and hosta blooms...
So here are some pictures of my purple friends!
I have some chocolate cookies, flax crackers, and sesame crackers in the dehydrator... More on that tomorrow!

Firing the Grid!

Me, my Mom, and dh Felix all participated in firing the grid this morning at 7:11 am E.S.T. It was amazing. The most powerful and interesting meditation I have ever had. I began by mentally forming and projecting my intention to share my love energy with the Earth and all of humanity. Almost as soon as I did this I entered a deep meditative, trance-like state, little of which I remember now. I just remember feeling deep unity and peaceful love. Then at EXACTLY 8:11 am, at the precise moment we were to end our meditation, my son Lincoln woke up and greeted us all with some morning love. What a blessed way to be so gently lifted from such a beautiful experience. All of my thanks and love go out to Shelley Yates for making this beautiful vision of what humanity really is available to us all. Love love love!

Since it is supposed to rain for the next few days, my Mom went out and picked most of the floral bounty she has been so busy nurturing. So now we have a botanical explosion in the living room... What beauty! Here is a pic to share it with you all...

I am re inspired in my rawness. I think it is the cases of beautiful mangoes and the new outside shower that Felix lovingly installed the day before yesterday. I am loving my life! I am feeling like I may put a new twist on my raw strategy. We will have to wait and see how it all takes shape. As for now I am sitting in the sun writing to you while my little son sits next to me on the other computer learning how to read. I am so thankful and grateful for the abundance of blessings in my life...

One love and all blessings...

Flax to the MAX!

I made some wicked-good flax seed crackers yesterday! WoW! I think I might have written down the recipe...
Felix is getting ready to rip down the ceiling in the main studio space and I admit it is freaking me out just a wee bit...
So many beautiful opportunities abounding and so much love swirling all around me! It is good to be alive. I love raw food and just about everything else, too.
I have been pretty much all raw, except for a couple of "carbohydrate accidents"... My new mantra is "Bread is not my friend"
I have lost another 5 lbs. bringing my grand total to 30 lbs. gone! I'm picking up momentum now! Watch me go! Look at me shrink!

You know you are a raw fooder when...

You find yourself sitting in your car eating your lunch of calymyrna figs and HOT & SPICY raw Kim-Chi washing it down with Ginger Kombucha tea loving every minute of it...

What restaurant could you get that combo in, seriously?

I loved my lunch today!

I have arrived!

So we made it to my Mom's house in SE Connecticut and it only took 27 hours of driving! Lincoln was such a good boy the entire trip and only freaked out one time after we had been stuck in traffic and didn't move an inch for over an hour! Believe me, I wanted to freak out too! We packed a bunch of gorgeous raw food for the trip and made it all the way to New Jersey before we ran out of real food and ended up with a bag of potato chips... Oh well... We noticed on our trip up here that there are virtually no non-franchise restaurants along the entire 1440 miles of I95 that we travelled from South Florida to Connecticut. All we wanted to do was find a little restaurant to get a salad made with real veggies that weren't dipped in chemicals, pre-cut, and shipped across the country in plastic baggies. We were unable to locate one. Not even an independent pizza place. Really, really weird.

Anyhow, we are here and eating masses of peaches and working, working, working!

Love and light to all of you out there.
