Origins Film Premiere

I am really excited about a new documentary that pulls together a range of concerns and ways forward!  It's called "Origins," and they're allowing online viewing for free until November 22nd.  I found it to be extremely illuminating, and it's not all doom stuff.  The problems are vast and are addressed, but they are linked to a core issue.

I was very taken with certain documentaries like "Dirt," "What Would Jesus Buy" and "Hungry for Change"--they still rank high on my list.  In person, I'd probably tell you that you NEED to watch them in all my excitement.  Online, I'm unlikely to do that. :)  Still, I'd go so far as to even request that you watch Origins.

Cold/Flu Prevention

There are so many things we can do to ward off germs in terms of our lifestyle, but sometimes it's worth taking the extra time to beef up certain vitamins and other whole foods/drinks.  I took a class from Learning Herbs and Rosalee de la Foret called Herbal Cold Care.  It was so very instructive--truly wonderful!  From her recipes, I've been playing a bit in the kitchen and have fire cider creating its magic and then herbal vitamin C pills.

Big Christmas Gift Decided

We tend to get shopping done early and spread it out for the girls.  Christmas isn't that close, and yet with all the wonderful Fall festivals and holidays, it's closer than we think.  Time passes quickly these days.

We decided on the Yogapeautics aerial yoga hammock.  It's costly, but it's a sharing gift for even us.  We already know they need swings like this in their lives.  They have a little hammock seat on the front porch and really do enjoy retreating there.
