Silence and Smoothies

Shannon, at Raw Mom, has also undertaken a speaking fast. It seems she's finding herself in a rush of creativity. Perhaps I'll reach that point if I remain silent longer.

Right now, I'm reaching the point of headache. I homeschool Wonder Girl, and while she works very independently, my written coaching is getting on her nerves. I'm also finding it hard to keep her on track. It normally only takes a word or two, but she's taking advantage of my silence, and trying to debate me on what she should or shouldn't be doing. LB would help me out, but he's working out of the house this week. It probably would've been wise of me to wait for this until he could be here to help me out, but I was tired of waiting for the perfect opportunity.

On the wonderful side, started the day with an extra yummy green smoothie! Spinach, blueberries, and frozen mango, strawberries and papaya. Oh yes, and a bit of ground flax seed. We haven't been doing smoothies much in the colder weather, but now they seem to be finding there way back into our regime. I'm taking the rest of mine out to the backyard, where I'll lie in the hammock and read a book in the sunshine. . . all alone.

Mmmm, I want a hammock. Sounds delightful.

BTW, I can't believe you've never been camping! You're in CA right? Check out the redwoods. Fresh clean air and really big trees. :)

I know. My kids are deprived! I love hiking and being outside, but when night falls, I want a nice plump mattress and a pillow. Maybe someday . . .nah, who am I kidding?

I'm fascinated!!! Wow. I'm not a very verbal person anyway, but I can see myself getting very frustrated in about 10 seconds. I'm interested to see how you grow from this experience! Maybe I'll try this some day myself.
