Week in Pictures

Heh. So I am almost to the halfway point of attempting to go dairy-, gluten- and refined-sugar-free suddenly I found myself, after Week 2’s shitty meals (I tried 3 new GF/DF recipes and they sucked BIG time. Let’s just say beans and quinoa are not allowed in our house for a while, mm-kay?), floating into Petite Provence for one of…

Eco-licious

Stuff that’s been rolling around in my own head this past week… Eggs + Souffles + Science = Awesome. Infertility + Elderly Women + Friendship = The Sisterhood of Grief at All Ages. Art + #MeToo + Sports Illustrated = A Step in the Right Direction. More Guns + Women + Rapists = Jessica Valenti calls out more NRA Bullshit.…

March Madness (…is divinest sense?)

When I was fifteen or sixteen, my Honors English teacher Mr Lewis gave each of us a poem that he thought represented us well. I got Emily Dickinson (score!), with this poem above. Anyone who knows even a bit of me will get a chuckle reading this as it couldn’t be closer to the core of who I am. So…

Week in Pictures

So for the past 2 years I’ve developed my own versions of the 95 Homesteading Skills bucket lists that I found on multiple websites (amen, Pinterest, for so much inspiration!), and #38,┬álearn basic metalworking skills, has just finally been scheduled!

Peri-WTF?! (or, having the courage to be free)

So I’m slowly but surely coming to the concept that I’m actually in perimenopause and have been for a number of years. I mean, hell, minus the hot flashes everything else seems to match pretty perfectly, from my fucked up ovaries to my mood swings to my space-out moments. Fact is, in just over two months I’ll be 44. When…

The Best Breast Test: Exploring Thermography (Part Two)

I am back with the second half of my blog series featuring the wonderful Candace Parmer of Radiant Body Thermography here in Portland, Oregon! With more and more warnings coming out from longtime medical professionals around the world about the dangers of mammography (and not just in holistic publications), I asked her to talk more in depth about the benefits…

The Best Breast Test: Exploring Thermography (Part One)

  I am SO excited to have my wonderful thermographer, Candace Parmer, as a guest blogger for this multi-part series on breast thermography and the many benefits it has as the safest and FIRST test women should get with a provider when looking for early signs of breast cancer. Candace’s mission is “to help women see themselves in a new…

Eco-licious

May! Yay! The next stage of blooming has begun in the garden, from roses going all out to the chive blossoms to cornflowers in abundance (a bee favorite) to our sage out front which rarely flowers. Lovely… Here are some other cool things I found out this week I thought I’d share… Shout out for OSMO Polyx-Oil, the low-VOC, plant-based…
