“I AM that I AM” sums up the whole truth. 

The method is summed up in “BE STILL”. 

 What does “stillness” mean?
It means “destroy yourself ”.
Because any form or shape is the cause of trouble.
Give up that notion that “I am so and so.”

Sweet and spicy with a citrus "tang" - I love the flavor of this sauce! Brings a feeling of summer to wintertime. Not that we don't already have plenty of summer in winter here in Tucson...
sunny orange stiry fry sauce
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed is always better, but bottled will do)
  • 1 overflowing TBS soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (use less or eliminate if you don't like spicy)
  • 1 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic minced, or 1/2 tsp garlic powder (highly optional)
  • 1 tsp ginger minced, or 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp arrowroot or cornstarch or (or flour, but use a little more)

Instructions:
  • stir together all ingredients in small saucepan. Heat on medium, stirring until thickened. Turn off heat - continue to stir until it stops bubbling.

Delicious over a bed of rice and stir fried veggies! <3
 
 
This planter is a "wicking pot" without drainage holes - it works great, you just need to be mindful not to overwater. Mine only needs water every 3 weeks or so: when the soil no longer feels moist and the pot feels light-weight.
Crochet Flower Pot

Materials Required:

  • 1 crocheted pot (“Sabbath Rest Flower Pot” crochet pattern used for the planter in the photos)
  • 1 plant
  • Potting soil
  • Perlite or pebbles
  • 1 Old sock, or scrap fabric
  • 3 Plastic shopping bags
  • Scissors


Protective Barrier
1- Protective Barrier
Place the pot inside a plastic bag. Wrap the bag over the edges of the planter to the inside. This prevents the planter from getting dirt all over it while being stuffed.


Waterproof Liner
2- Waterproof Liner
Place 2 plastic bags inside the planter, one at a time. Smooth them out against the edges of the planter as much as possible, and fold the tops over the edge of the planter to the outside.

Water Reservoir: Perlite Stuffed Sock
3- Water Reservoir
This is optional, but is helpful since the planter will not have a hole in the bottom for excess water to escape. Place some pebbles or perlite into the bottom of the planter. You can either stuff a sock with perlite and coil it in the bottom of the planter, or you can just put an inch or two of perlite in the bottom of the planter and cover it with a scrap of fabric - tuck down the edges of the fabric as best you can - this is to prevent dirt from getting into the water reservoir.


Add Dirt
4- Dirt
Stuff the planter with dirt - leaving a hole big enough for the plant. Try to pack and smooth the dirt against the edges of the planter, shaping it as you go. Stuff as much as you can around the sides up to the top - it can be difficult to fill these spaces after the plant is inside.

Plant
5- Plant
Put the plant in, and complete stuffing the pot with dirt. Keep in mind it is a soft/flexible planter, so the dirt shapes it - make it nicely rounded if you can.

Cut Bags
6- Cut Bags
Cut the two inner bags close to the level of the soil. Be careful not to cut the plant or the planter. Then cut the outer bag, being extra careful not to cut the planter.

Trim bags close
7- Finishing touches
Trim the edges of the bags close to the soil so that they are barely noticeable. CAREFULLY!

Crochet Planter in Hanger
8- Give your planter a home!
This white one was put into a hanger in my kitchen.
Water it from the top - keeping in mind there is a reservoir to catch extra water which should wick up into the soil.

 
 
Mallow Scrambled Eggs and Hashbrowns
There's nothing more nutritious than wild foods, and edible weeds I believe are especially good to eat considering how resilient they are. And they are free and abundant - I pick my mallow in the alleyway across the street.

This is a great way to get some good wild greens into breakfast.

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBS milk (coconut recommended)
  • 7-10 mallow leaves, chopped small
  • 2 crimini mushrooms, chopped small
  • 1/2 TBS butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp (or more) turmeric
  • sprinkle of pepper

Instructions:
  • melt the butter in the pan over low-medium heat, add the salt.
  • whisk together in a bowl: the eggs, milk, pepper, and turmeric. Stir in the chopped mallow and mushrooms.
  • poor mixture into pan - cook for about a minute, then scramble (chop it up with the spatula and keep turning and mixing until cooked).

Goes great with some hash browns, also cooked in butter and salt. ♥
 
 
No school today. We built a fort and sat in it and watched "Wild Things".

May make up a tutorial for this one... it's really easy, and really cool.

retractable color changing USB charger
Found this pretty purple thing on Ebay for charging my little android tablet. It is retractable, which is awesome! Keeps those messy annoying cords in order... and it's so pretty! The whole length of cord has little lights, and both plugs, that change colors like the horse in Wizard of Oz.
