Today I was enjoying a glass of ice water with my husband, as we looked out at the garden.  I was explaining to him that one of my favorite things to do, when the weather is mild, is garden in my bare feet.
I love gardening and living with the seasons.  Gardening grounds me to the earth and I feel more emotionally balanced.  Life is easier to handle with even a little bit of gardening.  It doesn't matter if it's only picking a little bit of green beans, like today, or working for a few hours. 

To me it is like a moving mediation. A place of great gratitude to God for not only the beautiful harvest, but for all my blessings. I love the feeling of being a co-creator with God and a participant in the Law of the Harvest.  I love playing in the dirt, and it usually shows on my clothes.  I love getting wet, the smell of damp grass and dirt, the wonderful harvests and the simple joy of cultivating the earth.

So as fall is upon us I am planting garlic and winter vegetables.  After Christmas I will be planting indoor window boxes of salad greens and herbs.  These will brighten my day, even if it's raining or snowing.

I want to encourage everyone to play in the dirt and enjoy life's simple blessings!

Neck & Shoulder Exercises for Pain

I used to have neck, shoulder, arm pain and numbness and headaches.  Mostly while I slept.  I tried going to our great Chiropractor, awesome Massage practitioner, wonderful Acupuncturist, Energy Work and I would get relief for only a day or so.  Even essential oils didn't work.  This challenge went on for over a year.  I was frustrated and didn't know what to do.  I went to the our local Physical Therapist and they showed me some simple exercises.

Here's my versions of the ones that were the most effective.

Hook Up Excersize on a Kitchen Day

Here I am on a busy day in the kitchen and  I thought about doing a video of the Hook Up Exercise for you. The Hook Up is quick. It can help you feel less scattered. It is grounding and just taking a few seconds to do it and assist you in your busy life too.
