What’s Bringing You Joy today?

Just me, my dog, and the sliver of the moon–oh, and about a thousand birds–on our morning walk. Out early, in anticipation of a long and full day, savoring the symphony of avian song, the changing light in the sky, the gentle and still-cool morning breeze of spring…ah, no matter what else comes up, my day has begun with joy and gratitude. What’s bringing you joy today?

Savvy Shopping, Smart Cooking

Eating Better at a Price You Can Afford … What an appealing idea! I am partnering with Wendy Van Wagner of In the Kitchen fame to provide this practical and fun food shopping tour and cooking class– all in one spectacular morning! We’ll meet and shop at Briarpatch from 9 – 10, during which time we’ll review labels and what ingredients to look for, explore grains and legumes and other interesting bulk items, and much more! We’ll then pop over to In the Kitchen for a cooking class (from 10:30 – noon) that will utilize some of the Basic Buy items being offered as an affordable purchase at Briarpatch. You’ll come away with a New Pantry shopping list, information to shop smart and sensibly, recipes, and a happy stomach–as the meal is included in the price! What a deal! Space is limited to 8, pre-registration and payment is required. Register here: http://wendyvanwagner.com. See you there!

Morning Music: EverGlades Birds Greeting the Day

It’s my pleasure to share a brief glimpse of the glorious sounds of morning song in the EverGlades… Happy Friday!  EGlades birdsong

The best thing I did when I discovered I had Type 2 Diabetes was to call Robin Mallery. She coached me to craft a plan to turn this condition around, and the encouragement to believe that I can.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am managing well, using Robin’s program of small steps, achievable goals, and positive reinforcement.  She’s not only a fountain of knowledge and experience, but a loving teacher and motivator.  For the first time in years, I don’t feel helpless about eating and weight gain.  Thank you, Robin!
