The end of another week. Where did it go? Perhaps it went by so fast because I have barely had all my children under the same roof for 2 weeks now. One or more of them is ALWAYS gone now… spending the night or many nights, with their grandparents. Since we moved 1.5 hours away they are staying with them more often. I can’t say that I blame them… they love their nana and papa.
My son started out the week at their house since we couldn’t miss the return of my father’s racing car, after having the engine rebuilt. My father is a dragster and my son is a total gearhead. My son called me on the phone to squeal in delight that his papa now has NOS in the car… ugh.
My daughter took his place as soon as I picked him up and has been gone for 3 nights now. This totally sucks! I know there are many parents out there that love time away from their kids but I am not one of them… after one afternoon I want to roll up in a ball and cry.
Yesterday I decided to take the boys on a trek to exercise away my blues and we had a lot of fun. One thing I love about Ohio is fog. You rarely see it in Arizona but in Ohio it is foggy a lot. I would hate to drive in it though! Here are some of my fave pictures of the fog. My son could really use a hair cut no?
On to interesting links for weekend reading:
Did you check out my Raw Vegan Raspberry and Spinach Ice Cream recipe? It is delicious!!! I can’t wait to make some blackberry ice cream… and yes it has spinach in it. Its an awesome way to get even more leafy green proteins into the diet.
I have been really active on Squidoo lately too… check out some of my lenses… Sexy Nursing Bras, Vita-Mix Blenders, No Spanking… I love Squidoo. ;)
I am inspired by this awesome icnic blanket, to sew one of my own.. hopefully this weekend. It would be great for picnics obviously but also reading and playing outside. I saw some really cute ones at Target too!
Another sewing link: a patchwork sewing machine cover tutorial. So cute!
Loving this article on The Wisdom of Hunter-Gatherers. It just confirms what I have long thought. We feel children have to be “taught” the simplest things nowadays because we keep them rather isolated from the real world. It didn’t used to be that way.
One last link… a Raw Mom Summit! This looks like an amazing teleconference and I will be attending for sure. For any woman who has ever yearned to give her child the very best start in life possible… Any mother who has felt the need to go against the grain of society’s standard parenting protocol because she knew there was a better way to live and to love…
Any mother who has ever questioned the status quo and believed that life and parenthood and the health of children could be better than it is, then what I am about to show you is something you’ve been waiting for.
“The Raw Mom Summit” is an online event starting on June 22nd and ending on June 30th. For 9 days and 9 nights the wisdom, experience and understanding of over 30 passionate health pioneers and some of the world’s leading experts in alternative health, are bringing their voices together in the name of building healthy families and empowered leaders of the next generation.
