Knitting & Reading


February 2013 065

I’m joining Ginny and the Yarn Along for the first time in I don’t know how long. It’s been quite a while.

This week I’ve just been working on Valentine’s gifts for the girls. I’ve made heart purses for them. Tonight I’m going to put a few pieces of organic lollipops and organic fruit leather into the bags and leave them at the breakfast table to be discovered in the morning. The girls make every holiday so wonderful, so meaningful. I love celebrating with them.

I’ve been reading The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest AND Healthy at 100: The Scientifically Proven Secrets of the World’s Healthiest and Longest-Lived Peoples. For the past several years, I was on a serious Weston A Price track with my health/eating habits/opinions. But over the past couple months, several things that came t my attention just had me questioning and seeking again… Where to find sound, true health advise? Well, I found what I was looking for on my current obsessive researching about those societies with unusually high centenarian numbers. I figured if their eating habits are good enough to keep them healthy and active into extreme old age, perhaps this is something worth looking into for my family, too.

I’m glad to be back at the Yarn Along!
