I’ve tried to start blogs many times. I either forget about them or begin to hate the idea of consolidating everything that floats around in my head. Hopefully this time I can slay.
I’ve simultaneously started a joint WordPress Blog with Wendy, my brother’s girlfriend. We have had such a great day putting together our business. Here is a link to our website: feefifoe.wordpress.com. This is where we will document the creating and making of our own original designs and artwork.
Here I am going to document the crazy (most likely mundane) happenings of my personal life. New hobbies, interests, jobs, epiphanies, etc…
The first epiphany I though I’d write about today is also the most recurring one in my life. Health. Recurring in that I immediately forget all about how magical it feels to know this amazing “secret”, which is actually not a secret at all. I’d like to categorize people’s shameless denial of our earth’s very own resources as “selective thinking.” Therefore, “selective living”.
I seem to go through this cycle of realizing the importance of the saying “you are what you eat”, then turning around to shove a double double in my face as if the fact that I am blind to what is processing inside of my body means it’s not really happening.
My health monster is rearing it’s ugly (but necessary) head once again. Only this time I find myself more ready and equipped to accept it.
Alongside my desire to be healthy in body and mind, I have also taken an interest in Medical Herbalism. I have started a few books on the subject, and luckily, most of the plants used for medicine are also culinary! This monster is Win-Win.
Today I ordered a various selection of herb seeds for medicinal and nutritional harvesting. Most of them can be eaten, used in teas, infusions, extracts, and tinctures. Not only am I reaping all of the benefits of ingesting what I harvest, gardening is also said to be therapeutic! You seriously can’t go wrong with this hobby.
I’ll put some pictures up of my gardening adventures once I start. First, Compost! yay! nasty, stinky rot! I’ve never been so excited. No, for reals.
