winter and rain

its been raining in nashville for 6 1/2 days. non stop. just when it gets warm and humid and gross it starts raining. its playing with my emotions. every time i decide to take my dog wizard for a run it starts raining then we smell like wet dog. 

so robert and i are doing a 5k on halloween, we are excited, ive been trying to train wizard to do the run with us, but not sure if he can run that long. 

just made pumpkin butternut squash soup! so delicious! a bowl of hott soup with fresh veggies and some curry paste! yummy!

im fighting a flu, i think i will be successful!

projects for the fall

the smell of fall is here. or its getting here. so good. we've started making butternut squash soup and vanilla pumpkin spice chai tea. its so good!

robert is back out on the road- he came home for the weekend and we went camping out on the lake! it was a blast. now he is back out for 2 weeks. we've been dreaming about our school bus, making the veggie system really efficient and making the inside completely self sustained. we are excited! a good winter project.

our new dog has lost 4 pounds because we've been exercising him and making his own doggie cookies! they are so yummy.

im perfecting my vegan cake recipe! i am so excited!

we've been making our own cleaning supplies, odor removers, stain removers, endust, etc. its making me feel great..and keeping our wallets full..

we've been dreaming alot. 

dreaming of moving somewhere, somewhere far, maybe denver, maybe costa rica, maybe australia

buying a piece of land somewhere and building a house and getting goats and grapes so i can make goats cheese and wine. 

opening a bakery/health food resturaunt/ bike/moped shop somewhere. not sure the business of those places all together.

something fun, just dreaming. 

maybe building a tree house.

asking ourselves "where would we like to be in 5, 10, 30 years?"

all good things to think about.

nomads and inspiration

here we go. this blog is basically spawn out of multiple people saying to us, " you guys should blog about your life!" i never thought it was that interesting, but i might as well. even if its only for me to look back and see how excited i got about the little things in my life.

robert and i have been married now 4 months tomorrow. although he has been gone on "business trips" for about 6 weeks of our 4 months, its going great, and if this 1 year is suppose to be the hardest, we are in for some great times next year! we are loving our little east nashville house, small but its good for us now. we have a big back yard and after being married for 3 months we got a dog! 96 pounds of beast (or love). robert takes so much pride in our yard, spending at least 5 hours a week mowing, weeding, cutting, trimming, hedging, watering and anything else you can do in a medium-sized city yard. 

we thought we would stop being nomads seeing as marriage normally does that...but oh no. we've gone on 6 trips since may. little weekend trips or all the way to canada, either way its traveling for us and seeing new things. (probably one of the keys to a very exciting marraige)

roberts off in north carolina and virginia doing cell phone tower maintenance, and im in germantown in an old house baking sweets, eggy quiche, moist gooey cakes, and hot winter soups at a tea room. its the most invigorating thing, waking up in the morning and making yummy food. although i've had to make my workout more intense, its a good feeling.

still studying nutrition and holistic health, will this course ever end. 

i am proud of a rememdy i made the other day for my sweet dog who has some skin allergies! a few simple ingredients and no itch. that was a good feeling.

that's today. more tomorrow.

Oh you five and ten cent women With nothin' in your heads I got a real gal I'm lovin' And Lord I'll love her till I'm dead Go away from my door and my window too Right now
