Elimination Communication Basics

I thought about doing a post about this when my oldest was a baby, but it really overwhelmed me. I thought I didn’t really know anything, it wasn’t until recently when I was talking with a friend with a new baby, that I realized I do know a few things.   My first encounter with Elimination Communication (EC), or potty,…

Resolutions Revisited

Back in January I had a few resolutions that I wanted to work on/try/do this year. What good are resolutions if we don’t look back on them and see how we’re doing? It seems like the only time anyone thinks about resolutions is during the new year. Since the year is more than halfway over now, I thought I would…

Happy New Year!

I usually have the same resolutions every year, eat better and drink more water. So far this year I’ve been thinking about resolutions and my hopes for the new year. I want to be more specific with my hopes and try to follow through with my resolutions. A few of my hopes include:

What my dog has taught me…

My little doggy has definitely taught me a lot. She’s quite a character and she brings a lot love, laughs and shaking of heads. Overall I wouldn’t trade her for any other puppy. It’s nice to have her around and learn from her simple ways. I didn’t realize how much she has taught me until I started writing this post.…

At one point in my life I was determined to be single, never have any babies and travel the world. I had these two great aunts who lived in San Francisco, they had moved there just after high school and were independent career ladies. They both got married later in life, near forty I would guess, and they both never…

the good earth

Watering the flowers and the garden is so good for me. It’s so nice to be outside before the sun heats everything up and it’s to have a few moments to think about whats been on my mind without being distracted. The flowers bring so much joy and when I water them I always think to myself that I should…

let the sunshine cook for you

Today I used some sunshine to make some muffins which equaled a cool house while baking. The recipe I used required only one bowl which equaled less dishes which equaled a happier me. We recently bought a “sun oven” but it’s been rainy. Today was a nice day so I brought it out and made some muffins, and while they…

bald and beautiful

In July a good friend of mine shaved her head because she always wanted to. I wanted to shave mine too, so I did. I’m glad she had the courage to do it because I might not have if I didn’t see how great she looked. A few weeks before, I had just gotten my hair cut, I had a…
