Oh, Lovely Mud...

Praying For...Claire, a sweet spirited little pixie, to be blessed with health, happiness, safety, and faith...also praying for the youth of the world that they will have enough faith so Satan can't take hold of their hearts with pornography, drugs, alcohol, and other vices. Help them be strong.

Meditations of Jesus..."Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do." 2 Nephi 32:3 Right now they are telling me to be patient and diligent.

Dr. Ginger Medicine Woman...a liniment of arnica and frankincense are magical for joint and muscle pains from arthritis, exercise, or viruses. 

Duds...warmer weather caused me to stop wearing boots this week; I'm back to my old faithful Birkenstock Madeiras with black, cotton tights from Hannah Anderson. I just discovered Hannah tights this year and absolutely love them up to about 70F. 

Garden Gate...Although I wasn't excited about the cookbook portion of this book, I got some great ideas from Elliot Coleman's Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook. It inspired me to try and paint a watercolor of my imagination garden, since I probably won't get to have a garden again this year.

Bibliophilia...sent Claire a copy of Small Pig, one of my children's favorites. We think that pig is the best pig in the world. He likes to sit down and sink down into the good soft mud. Oh, Lovely Mud!

Cucina Fresca...Went to a miso making class Saturday. Even through my whole ordeal over the last 4 months, miso was the only food besides fruits and vegetables I could keep down. I've spent a mint in postage getting South River Miso and would like to make my own. Sadly, I realized my transient lifestyle won't allow making miso. But now I know it is quite an easy process, not mysterious or difficult at all. Made Ann Esselstyn style oatmeal waffles with strawberries and ice kream for my beloved on Valentine's Day, which had him cheering. I was very careful to use non-gluten oats and carefully gave them a try. Oh, my they are good and didn't cause me any trouble.

Sound of Music...I usually takes a few weeks after we move to a new location to get back into the swing of the schedule. Violin playing is making a more frequent  showing again, but I'm really missing the piano...But...we can't pack a piano into the corolla. 

Pen and Brush...I'm enjoying watercolor painting very much and combining it with my other hobbies, grandchild of the week and nature journaling (no there are no cherry blossoms out yet; it was wishful thinking). This week I'll be sending cards to Claire and ...I don't know yet. I'm not sure how the recipients feel, but it is so much fun for me.
