This week I am especially thankful for...
...fans. I love summer, but this 100+ stuff every single day makes me appreciate the cool breeze of a spinning fan.
...little spiral notebooks. Especially the kind that are small enough to comfortably fit in a zippered purse pocket. You just never know when a brilliant idea will strike, so I'm grateful for a convenient place to jot it down!
...cinnamon. Just a pinch added to my coffee every morning almost makes it taste like I'm sipping Starbucks.
...reusable water containers. Recycled plastic bottles of water is definitely good, but what's even better (and cheaper) is to buy a plastic reusable container and fill it up with water from a water fountain. I do this several times while I'm at work every day :)
I am most especially thankful for Turtle Rock Farms because I just found out via email that they have availability for me to stay there Aug 4-7 for the Permaculture Design Course. I am grateful for quite a few reasons.
First, according to Google maps, Turtle Rock Farm is approximately 1 hour and 37 minutes north of my house. That's not including traffic. So I really didn't want to have to drive more than 3 hours round trip each day.
Second, I have a feeling this is going to be an amazing experience. I'm not sure which house I will be staying in, but both houses on the farm have a common kitchen and living room area and a shared bathroom. I'm a little nervous about living with people I don't know for 4 days, but also excited about what I will learn from them.
Also, they grow organic fruits/veggies, harvest rainwater, compost, raise chickens and alpacas, and have an inspiring environmental policy. If you would like to check out some pictures or read more about it, you can click here.
