We've started growing our own food!
This is the beginning of self-sufficiency in our household. We are growing organic swiss chard, red peppers, romaine lettuce, green beans, onions, spinach, tomatoes, basil and cilantro on our roof. I also planted veggies in the garden in front of my work place! We are growing zucchinis, three different tomatoes, green onions, rainbow chard, kale and a couple of other things. We'll learn as we go and become good at it. Soon we'll build a big green house to go with our earth home. I'll post pictures of the earth building workshops We've taken recently.
James loving his life in Canada
We are very lucky to be where we are. It is a privlege to have time to realax, explore, be creative and have so many choices before us. We tend to take all of this for granted, but we have to remember to be grateful because people all over the world are suffering and have limited options to create change. We are here to give love (as crazy as that sounds). When we give something as simple as a smile it spreads positive feelings very quickly and makes the world better. Be kind. We are responsible for this every minute of the day.
This belongs to everyone.
Ontario is sooo beautiful! Before we think of traveling to another country we should have a look around our own.
Cutting off Joshua's Dreads!
Josh woke up the other morning and said he wanted to cut off his dreads just for a change...so this is him before we started.
Joshua cutting off his dreads part 2!
So we cut his dreads off before he went to school! It was emotional for me because they represent his childhood to me- all the traveling, homeschooling and things we've been through are all wrapped up in his hair. He's officially a teenager now. He can do what he wants.
My feet have escaped the confines of socks and boots!
James and I went to the bluffs the other day and felt the hot sand under our feet (much needed after a long winter). We try to get outside as often as possible to reconnect with the earth.
