Her favorite blankie just went in the washer. *

I'm not even kidding. ❀️😊 She's been sitting here and every once in a while sniffing at the washer and dryer and then spinning around, wagging a lot, and then just sitting and staring at them again for the last 10 minutes. *

Full Primary Series Tuesday inspired this start to my work day: Cold Comfort Tea Smoothie with acai berry, pineapple, lemon, dragon fruit powder, greens powder, royal jelly, maple syrup, chia seeds & hemp seeds + my favorite - in season apples with nutbutter and working outside near the garden on a bright, crisp morning. Just me and the geese flying overhead, the lizards tramping about, the humming birds squeaking in the chitalpa tree and the breeze. *
*
Tuesday is the one full work day I get per week and there's always loads to do (currently yoga retreat day prep, website updates, blog posting, festive emails to send out to the sweet people on my list, admin planning, Thursday market making - mulling spice in the house!!, and homeschool prep. Phew!) Thought a bit of extra nutrition and a gorgeous setting would keep the juices flowing. I was right! *

A little random Tuesday Magareeshi Cha Cha Chai Tea Blender Latte love for you!
*
*
Made butternut squash quesadillas with sautΓ©ed leeks and mushrooms for dinner last night (YUM!) and had some leftover squash so instead of the usual pumpkin, I added butternut to my post-yoga brew and it was delish!! My wee girl took a sip (because Magareeshi #chachachai is #herbal and caffeine free!) and said, "Oooooo. That's yummy!" It is. It's kind of nog-like and festive. There's been so much hectic energy and sad headlines lately, it was necessary for me to have a long practice and some regrouping time today. A little sacred self care in the form of this delicious drink got me more heart connected and so I've written you a little love letter (and of course I've included this recipe!) plus some tips for staying positive. Check out my Facebook page or find me in your inbox where I hope to reframe the current news broadcasts and brighten your life! πŸ’—

Tranquility. *
*
This is the word that came up for me in my morning yoga practice today. There's so much doing-going-doing all the time. There's been a lot of suffering. Yet. Tranquility still awaits us. *
*
I am guiding an Autumn Yoga Retreat Day on 11/11 in #lasvegas (details on my FB page - or look for your email from me). If you're in need of more tranquility, please join us! The Summer Yoga Retreat Day was so warmly received, it was requested that I lead more. Our city (and our world!) needs more peace and calm and that begins with each one of us. So, register before 11/3 and come along with me on the tranquility train!
*

Will be back in town for the @connorsfarmersmarket this week offering 30% off all chamomile teas to first responders, firefighters, police officers, and anyone directly impacted by last week's sad shooting in my city, #vegas. May these soothing teas bring you a little comfort and tranquility!

4:30am. Going to sleep for a couple hours before the wee girl gets up. This is on my bedside table. Thanks, @gabbybernstein for your supportive book, The Universe Has Your Back (read this!!!!) and these lovely cards!! And thanks, @crazysexykris for your incredible simplification of working with the mind when you said in your @bestselfmedia summit interview, "You can't change the first thought, but, you can change the second one!" Lately I've been paying closer attention to my thought patterns and cleaning them up and shifting them to positive and having more fun with my monkey mind and these cards and those words resonated deeply with me. I have to do the work and recently my mind chatter hasn't necessarily been the stuff of world's greatest yogi! I'm so grateful to have inspirational reminders all around me. *
*
Normally sleep is a non-negotiable for me. It wasn't happening with ease when I went to bed and as I picked up my phone to read my kindle, a message of concern for my husband's safety popped up. We live in Las Vegas. He's a musician on the Strip. He is safe - still currently in lockdown at his theatre after a mass shooting outside his hotel. The feeling of gratitude I have is so immense and stretches to so many levels. I've been watching our 8 year old wee girl sleep and enjoying the pooch's snoring. I've been genuinely believing that peace is possible. As soon as I saw that message, I knew something was gravely wrong. I immediately said, "I recognize that I have chosen fear, and I choose again. I choose love" before looking at the news and reaching out to my husband. So many people's lives are changed unexpectedly every day due to violence. I believe a love-filled world with happy people living their light is the answer that leads to ahimsa, nonviolence. I choose love.
*
*
And while part of my heart and mind reaches out energetically to send compassion, kindness and support to everyone impacted by violence, I am ever so grateful to know that in a few short hours we will welcome my husband home again and our lives will have been impacted for the better by this tragedy because we will be embracing gratitude and love even more freely than before.

Nature Study. *
*
It's a lot of dedication to homeschool our child for both me and my rock of a partner. And this year I've upped my own anti even when I didn't know how I would by committing to spending genuinely educational and connective time with my faux niece and nephew guiding them alongside my daughter in social studies and nature studies. Their most wonderful mama has taken on the task of deep science exploration with these 3 amazing kiddos. (Did you know these are not required topics in Common Core Curriculum for elementary? Say whaaaa???). People always say, "I don't know how you do it! How do you fit it all in? How do you spend all day with your kid?" I don't know. I mean, I definitely don't fit it ALL in. I do believe in Magic and time bending. And I get totally and completely overwhelmed. And I must say NOOOOOOO to many things (this is finally becoming clear to me. Thank goodness!) But what is fit in is just so beautiful, I don't know how I would live without it. Or without this time with these kiddos. In the end, this will count. That I'm sure of. *

There is this spot in my backyard garden that is teaming with life as the season changes. Every kind of bee is buzzing in and out of the yellow bells. Hummingbirds are constantly zipping back and forth, stopping for sips of of sweetness. Ants are marching every which way. Spiders are winding webs. Too many aphids are affixing themselves to the flowers (note to self, spray some baking soda and water solution on the garden today!). Countless butterflies and moths flap their gorgeous wings and land to sit for a spell. I am sitting peacefully here. Still. Immune boosting smoothie made from Magareeshi Cold Comfort Tea in hand, watching it all, and marveling at all the life in and around me. Feeling extra reminded to be grateful and take stock and be peace now. Because NOW is what we've got. *

Been learning about #inuksuk and the astoundingly resourceful, artful and kind #inuit people in our #homeschool. Truly inspirational. Looking closely with respect and care at traditional tribal people has me yearning to connect with our amazing Earth and remembering to be so grateful for every living thing. Also, these kids?? They are amazingly open and curious and willing and such full participators, they've got me being a better human. Wild babies!! Love them!!

This year we are even more dedicated to family as well as personal meditation and yoga as part of our educational exploration. Every first day of the week we gather for Metta Meditation. We send out loving kindness and intentional happiness for all beings everywhere. We feel gratitude for the miracles that abound. We do this before we begin setting goals and making logistical plans and starting our work for the week. Priorities! (the wire flower is our talking "stick" 🌸 - we do a feelings check in and see where everyone's heads and hearts are)

Hey, bro. NamastΓ©!

Just lightening the mood. The state of the political world is all amok. Natural disasters weigh heavy on my heart. My brain runneth over with homeschool planning and prep. (Like, spilling out my ears and oozing out my mouth and dripping out my eyes and running out my nose, leaving me standing in a puddle-pile of plans and papers and notebooks and links and ideas!) Yet, there is no reason not to choose happy. No reason not to choose positive outlook. No reason not to focus on love. No reason not to laugh a little. And there's never no reason not to eat organic mangoes when in season! Yes. That was a double (triple?) negative. My brain is mushy. *
