I am habitually optimistic – could be the wine, but I like to believe wine brings out your true nature 😉 –
Usually its great! I mean, all the time I think its great, but sometimes it becomes clear that I have too little doubt… like the time I fought to let The Boy take a (familiar and parallel!!!) hiking trail and he wound up on a nearby street with a bus driver stopping to help him… I totally trusted that he would be fine… I did not think about the fact that he would run like a bat out of hell to ‘beat’ us to the end of the trail…
It beats The Man’s pessimism any day…. or at least balances it out
Soooo… I mentioned in the last post that I had finally opened an Etsy.com shop, which is something a couple years in the making… I have had SIX sales since!! I’m so stoked about it! It has been thrilling every time I get an “Etsy Order Confirmation” email… I knew all the relics I stockpiled would be someones treasure one day!
Since signing on to Etsy.com a couple years ago I have drooled over the section aptly named “Quit Your Day Job”. I would read endless accounts of people realizing they could make their hobbies their livelihood whilst sitting at my desk, eyes spread wide – a bit of crazed jealously and caffeine will do that to you… Whyyyy could this not be me???? Granted my SIX sales aren’t going to be paying the bills BUT they definitely could … one day? 🙂
I’ve just been ogling over the most recent shop featured for “Quit Your Day Job” and they’ve definitely found their niche (waterproof “shower art”). I’m always laughing in amusement and showing my husband the things people actually buy online half trying to convince him that we can do this…! So freaking exciting that I’m making it happen…
So NOT exciting is my infected, impacted wisdom tooth… I have avoided the dentist for SIX years… I have many a gone filling and all three of my wisdom teeth are impacted with the fourth growing under the gum 100% perpendicular to the other teeth (I’ve really been telling people that I am one of those evolved humans that grew with less (only three) wisdom teeth : / ) … The dentist made it known today he would not be dealing with that mess… The oral surgeon will be responsible for cleaning up my mouth now… If only this could be a lesson to The Boy that he needs to be brushing more carefully! Anyhow…. I tell you all that since it forces me to be on a smoothie diet – no chewing for while – sooo I’ve been perfecting some smoothie recipes! YAY!
Since going RAW – and now maintaining a 90% RAW diet – I have come to love the DATE! Never had I had one before going RAW even though I am a huge fan of dried fruit… My sister had been raving and they’re in like 99% of RAW dessert recipes so I bought a box… Now I depend on them…
———-BEST SMOOTHIE YOU WILL EVER HAVE IN YOUR LIFE ———-
So simple and yet I crave it every day. I can literally taste like a caramel whipped frappe… So sweet and creamy…Gah!
I usually soak about 10-12 dates overnight (just leave them covered with water in the blender until morning)
Then throw in about 4 bananas ( Super Ripe bananas – if they’re not covered in brown spots It will taste like banana and not dreamy caramel)
Whoa! Best thing I ever tried and its 100% good for you… I have one just about every day and make a super big portion for after a workout…
First Camping trip with an infant to come this week! More to come!
