I attended a presentation on Ayurvedic and Homeopathic Healing in our community room in the afternoon. We were entertained by Dr. Roth and his companion from India who played a 150 year old stringed instrument called a Sarinda. We sang, meditated, prayed, and ate and I found it to be very spiritual and calming.
Camille had a sleepover with me on Friday night and she cooked dinner for me. She made fried cheese and quesadillas and my contribution was a salad. It makes me feel so good to see how they are growing up, learning life skills and becoming really nice girls. She also helped with the cleanup and I let her watch a video while I did the dishes. We watched the movie “If I Could Ride” and found it to be long and slow and not of the best quality, but a good story nonetheless. It was 11:00 when we went to bed and then I heard all about the twins getting braces in a few days and how their teeth are identical and need the exact same corrections - I guess that’s twinsies for you.
Yesterday after breakfast, we did what we usually do on sleepovers - makeup. And then we did our Earth Day contribution to make the world a better place and went outdoors and picked up trash around our property and along the street near my home. Our hands were freezing (today’s high was 34°) and we had to call it quits, but not before we had a trash bag full.
We headed for the Eden Prairie mall where they were having an Eco Expo but it was mainly booths related to eco-friendly products for the home but they did have a section for kids where we got to pet baby goats and learn about how they are used to eradicate buckthorn and other invasive species. Of course, I found that to be very interesting. Camille - not so much. We stopped and had a glass of tea before heading to the Art Center that was closed. A little more shopping and then I took her back home and hung out for a while.
And now I plan to have a lazy day appreciating the quiet of my home and doing anything I feel like doing - what a busy week it was!
