I can’t be part of this white silence. We are having daily discussions with our kids about racism, privilege, attitude and silence. Topics I always kept them away from or limited discussions around thinking it shielded them from the heaviness of it all while in actuality it was perpetuating the ongoing white supremacy America. It’s a heavy topic and I do not like heavy conversations or conflict. But I cannot and will not brush it to the side and just let others deal with it. I now know better and am trying to do better. I’m unlearning.
Please tell me non-millennials can wear these adorable
hats too??? This is from Gigipip. The construction is super high-quality and the look is beyond adorable! Totally worth every penny. I want them in every shape and color.
It’s a longggggggg + lazy weekend so making all the fun/delicious recipes. I mean, hey, why not?? Oozy, gooey and sticky foods are always welcome in this house. Plus there’s sourdough starter discard daily (yep it’s in this dough) and a girl can’t let that go to waste now can she?
I used a recipe I found here. https://www.bostongirlbakes.com/sourdough-cinnamon-rolls
Fennel, apple and pomegrante slaw with grapefruit drizzle
I always thought fennel was gross but saw the bulb at the store one day and said, what the heck, I'll give it a try. Turns out, it does NOT taste like black licorice like I thought it would. Crunchy and perfect in this combo. I make this slaw often and it is always a winner.
There are actually some fabulous recipes out there for salads and slaws and I took inspiration from a few and started tossing things together. Here's my result.
▪️ 1 bulb of fennel, washed and thinly sliced into slivers. Reserve the leafy tops for decoration.
▪️ 1 pomegranate, seeds removed
▪️1 Grapefruit, segments removed and juice squeezed into a bowl
▪️ arugula to line bottom of bowl
▪️1 crisp apple thinly sliced into matchsticks
▪️1/2 cup olive oil
▪️2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
▪️1 teaspoon dijon mustard
▪️the reserved juice from the squeezed grapefruit
▪️salt and pepper to taste
▪️optional grapefruit vitality essential oil to amplify the effects of the grapefruit flavor naturally
We are finding our groove this week. I have deep gratitude for my children’s school @waldorfschoolmoraine and all the fantastic efforts by the faculty. They keep bundling up ideas for the kids and also checking in via zoom. We have exciting projects all over the house from plants growing 🌿to wool get carded to quirky math problems, violins lying around 🎻 and now sewing PJs. 🧵
Thankfully they are coaching us parents along the way offering warm words of encouragement. I’m feeling more like I can handle this makeshift homeschooling thing! And my favorite part...the baking!
We took an early morning walk in the light drizzle surrounded by no one. The mood and the sky offer the same lonely vibe. A bit sad and grey all 6 feet away.
The post office is still open so you can still order and receive enough fire cider to keep you going through the extended social isolation time. What are YOU doing to boost your immune system? We drink a shot of this powerhouse daily. Snag yours today at the Dakota Natural Goods store in my profile link.
Baking allllllll the things while on lockdown. But I’m almost out of flour and there’s none on my store shelves! Baking reduces my stress level. The smells that fill the house, the calming nature of kneading bread and the delight of seeing how it turns out. 🥖🥖🥖Eating the fruits of our labor adds on a whole other level of happiness. What do you do to reduce stress in your house?
Day 1 homeschooling started with math:
1) built a chart wheel (thank you IKEA) and each kid has to spin 3 times and do those tasks.
2)stuck on the 8,000 monopoly prices we got from shopping at Shaw’s.
3) fighting and arguing began and it was recess the rest of the day.
is it 5 o’clock somewhere?
I’ve given a zillion speeches and workshops and I still get nervous. Practicing for my workshop tomorrow I’ll be giving to Lactation Consultants. The title of my talk is Chiropractic, Cranials and Tightened Tongues: a myofascial approach to nursing struggles. I always record myself and then watch it back without the sound on. You really can learn a lot about your body movements, mannerisms, talking with your hands and dumb facial expressions you make. I love it though. ❤️
are you an LC or IBCLC in the Boston area? Come say hi and introduce yourself tomorrow at the conference!
