The sun is shining outside.
The snow and ice are melting.
Nature is preparing for springtime.
And all my basic instincts are wild with joy and excitement. Go get some seeds, they scream. Plan the loveliness that will grow in your garden! Go! Go! GO!
Only, this time, I have no garden. And I was prepared to skip this one, just close my eyes and maybe get back on track sometime later when I have managed to find an apartment somewhere, but somehow it seems so completely, insanely impossible to do!Read More
My family and oldest friends gave me up for crazy several years ago. I have, for the most part, stopped eating what they eat 4 times a day. I have chucked the antibacterial dish soap out of my cupboard while hissing about microorganisms having the right to live. And I have set up “do not mow-areas” on the lawn, where some of my little herb friends were growing.
Crazy lady.Read More
Today, I have a guest post for you! It’s written by the lovely Pip Miller from Notes From A Wounded Healer.
Over to you, Pip!
Sometime last year I was feeling horrible. I was really overweight, I had a knee problem that wouldn’t heal, and every movement was a struggle of some sort. Plus I was in low-level pain all the time. Not fun.Read More
A few days ago, me and my daughter was going to the local theme park. The weather was warm, and while I was packing the bag, I found myself grabbing the disposable water bottle we had bought a few days ago and putting it in, thinking that I, too, have to get one as soon as we get there.
But then I stopped myself.Read More
This lovely Friday I have a wonderful treat for you!
It has almost no sugar (heck, it has almost no carbohydrates!), no dairy, it’s completely natural and healthy – and it can really pass for a cake! With chocolate!Read More
As I mentioned the other day, I’ve kinda fallen off the green wagon this summer, and now I’ve decided to get back on, simply to feel right again – both emotionally, spiritually and physically. I’m kinda feeling that this project has been two steps forward and one step back all the way, and now I’m so motivated to take yet another couple of steps forward towards a greener lifestyle – even though I know that it won’t be perfect this time, either.Read More
This is one of my favorite natural food recipes, and it’s so easy to make! It takes about 20 minutes to make, and it freezes quite well to (even if the shrimps does tend to get a bit tought when reheated, which is why you add them last when you make the dish).Read More
Forgive me, Mother Earth, for I have sinned…
I have really let my green and lovely habits slip this summer, and I really don’t know why. I suppose I could blame it on the stress. On laziness or perhaps a desire to make family life a little bit easier. It’s kinda hard being the only one who cares, and there has been some conflicts over everything from what we’re having for dinner (and who’s making it), how the dishes are supposed to be cleaned (somehow an antibacterial dish washer soap made it to my kitchen cabinet, while the lovely and natural Ecover version found itself in the basement(!)), and I could just go on and on.Read More
