I had not realized it has been so long since I last posted!  Life got away from me it seems.  I did start a new blog, but maintaining two is one too many.   I plan to only update here and delete the other.  So, here is what I have been up to the past year.

- Master Spinner's Course Level I
               I am still working on Level I, however I am making progress.  I feel horrible that it is taking me this long to complete the first level.  I recently purchased a great many of the books listed on the "reading and bibliography" of the course.  Many I already had.  I am washing wool and soon to process it to complete yet another portion of my homework.  I am quite excited that I am coming to the study of 10 sheep breeds and the natural dyeing portions of the course.  I need to purchase some materials for the last few assignments and have plans to do so when I travel to Calgary in a few weeks.

- Tailoring
            I am studying with a friend who is a Master Tailor.  She is teaching me new skills so that I can move from being a seamstress to a Tailor.  This is exciting to me as I always wanted to be able to manipulate fabric into something wonderful the way we can manipulate fibre into strings!!  As I have a not your average body type, this will mean that I will finally be able to have clothing that will fit properly (and perhaps last longer as well).
- Health 
          I need to start eating cleaner food and figure out why I am having allergic reactions to what I am eating.  I need to work on some sort of exercise (yoga?) routine as well.  I need to find balance in my life.  See a trend here?  While I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia many, many years ago I still think there is more to it.  Yes, my doctor has tested me for anything.  I am stubborn.  I did do an allergy elimination diet last year, which proved me to be allergic to eggs and raw tomatoes.  It also showed that I am intolerant to dairy and gluten products, as well as peppers.  I was doing very well for a while.  Then, life got out of hand and there was no time for all the cooking and food prep it takes to maintain a healthy eating routine.  So, here I am, not feeling well, having allergy symptoms, loss of concentration and feeling exhausted all the time.  I plan on sharing recipes and my progress as I change my lifestyle to a healthier one.

 This is my new Waring Pro Commericial Rated Blender 3.5 HP!  Well, it's en-route. This was step one of my food preparation and smoothies.  I've also purchased the vegan Shakeology, as it contains

Here's a video about sourcing the ingredients of Shakeology   It contains more than 70 natural ingredients derived from rich, nutrient-dense whole-food sources from around the world.
Shakeology is so incredibly healthy, no other single food item out there can supply you with all the nutrients, vitamins, proteins, and minerals in the amounts you need the way one delicious shake can.*
My daughter is a Beach Body coach  ( should anyone want any information.
 Well, that is all for now.  I must promise myself to update more often!  Another goal to balance it seems!!!
