Doing it Raw

Doing it Raw

I’m on this path lately to try and incorporate more of the eating patterns I had before the Winter of Demise. I can’t believe winter is finally ending. I feel so happy and back to being me. The sun feels warm and I hear birds chirping. Even though the wind was burtal today, I see … Continue reading

Mondays in Spring

Mondays in Spring

I woke up Monday to a nice ray of sunshine. After a gloomy Saturday and cold Sunday, I felt happy. I’m usually a Garfield of sorts and don’t like Mondays, but today I felt hopeful and full of life. For breakfast I had half a glass of green juice made with kale, celery, ginger, parsley, … Continue reading

Yoga and Recovery

It’s been almost two months since I’ve been enrolled in a yoga studio. For the past three years, I’ve never gone this long without doing yoga. The longest break I’ve taken in three days or so.

But mainly because most of the human population is vitamin D deficient, it’s not hard not to be … Continue reading

Even the Grinch Grew a Heart… Part 2

I woke up real early Christmas morning to Skype with my sister and her hubbie up in Canadia. I went to bed shortly after the Skype session and woke up to make some pancakes. Despite feeling like the grinch and dealing with an almost-fire situation in my kitchen, Christmas ended up being a nice event … Continue reading

Even the Grinch Grew a Heart… Part 1

Even the Grinch Grew a Heart… Part 1

I’ve been real grinchy this year. I don’t know what it is. I think between Seoul being a lot colder than usual, being sick, and still settling into a new place, things just haven’t been as Christmassy. Normally this is my favorite time of year: I love the colors, the smells, the songs. Christmas Eve … Continue reading
