Kombucha was infested with fruit flies. Yuck!! Good thing I had a back up! Found a great way to get rid of fruit flies. Damn, this is the first time I've had them. Must be all the fruit in the house. Doesn't help that I bought a box of bananas. The Husband loves pineapple in his smoothie, so we usually have a fresh one on the counter waiting to ripen (if they've been on sale). Anyway you fill a wide mouth jar with 1/2 apple cider vinegar, a few drops dish soap and fill the rest with water. I was amazed at how many fruit flies I caught, thinking I only had a few. (I only used a small 150 ml mason jar.)

Yoga, gym......I'm striking out with the gym lately. I'm going to drag my elliptical inside tonight and make sure I jump on that this first thing in the morning. My ipod is charging right now.I found a little 10 minute yoga work out in a Ayurvedic website. I'm going to add it to my morning routine.I'm really widening my horizons in my exploration of the mind and spirit. I like what I'm finding.

Babies....I keep having crazy dreams about babies. Must be on my mind. I'm not sure why, I don't think I'll have any more babies. I've made up my mind, I love my boys and would have loved to have a girl but the boys are at a great age now and I don't think I want to go back to round the clock breast feeding. I like the age my boys are at now.

Dad is on my mind a lot lately.
I think about my Dad everyday. There are days when I feel more emotional about it, miss him more, think how unfair it is that I lost my Daddy. I talk about my Dad with the boys, to keep his memory alive for me and for the boys. I think of all the good stuff and tell the boys.

Once in awhile the boys too miss him enormously. That's been the last few days here. Me and my dreams and then Mica telling me he misses him and then Kale coming to me with sadness in his face missing him. Some times I give into the the emotion and cry for him and sometimes I put on a brave face and tell my Dad I miss him, I love him and go on with my day. He is never forgotten.

I'm back to drinking warm water throughout the day..

I recently read an article about finding your passion and in order to find your passion you have to remember.

Things I was passionate about:
creating things with my hands

So these are the things that I need to explore again.

My sons all have passions for artistic things and I'm going to continue to encourage them to do these.

Mickey - art and music
Mica - singing and creating with his hands
Kale - writing, reading, visual arts
