My friend sent me a gift.
She sent a charm with the indalo man encircling a cage that holds a golden ball. It is a special gift of love and light from a dear and special friend. It is the gift of connection. I tinkle the charm to call the Angles. I hold the charm and my friend is only a thought away.
I am working on wellness. Eating lightly as my body recouperates from a fever and coughing. My husband has made me soup and toast each day. I think I am ready to make a stir fry!
I am smiling as often as I can.
Even laughing. I want to write on one of my hats. I want to show my hat cherry blossoms too. I love this drawing of Basho and his hat.
I am drinking lots of tea.
Many cups of my herb blends from herbs I dried last summer.
I can taste summer and hear the bees.
My friend sent hugs on a day I needed them.
I instantly felt better.
Tonight and for many night to come I will snuggle up with the book she sent and once again commit myself to my garden.
My husband brought home clementines.
He knows how much I enjoy them.
I have not had much of an appetite.
To become well I must eat.
I am working on wellness.
I was out of balance.
I am finding harmony.
We explore the Asian world in January.
Our home is decorated with an Asian theme.
We celebrate Chinese New Year. 2011 is the year of the rabbit.
We are planning our trip to the Chinese market. We need eight treasures tea and black rice. We are talking about getting another rice lantern for the soffit light that is over the kitchen table.
We are plant based people.
I am always looking for new recipes.
We try to eat locally grown vegetables.
This year we want to grow more of our food.
Knowing where my food comes from and how it is grown is important to me. I enjoy cooking in my wok.
I enjoy the Asian way.
