I find that even though I spend a lot of time alone, I still need to place myself in some quiet isolation and just think things through. I used to “lock” myself in the bedroom as the kids were collapsing on the other side of the door for
of alone time.
it would work wonders. I’d emerge from that room (slightly) refreshed, and with a tad bit more energy to face the rest of the day.
now I take to the bath tub.
it’s a great place to unwind, calm the mind, and can also be very therapeutic.
having fibromyalgia, and chronic pain in my joints caused from the damage of hemochromatosis, sometimes the tub is the only place that gives me relief.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what this year should be about. the whole ‘clean slate’ thing and all. and if you think of it that way, it’s an exciting thing–a fresh carpet rolled out in front of you with nothing but opportunities and adventures.
there’s lots of change happening in my life, all things good, so I thought I’d dust off the cobwebs here and make some changes.
first off, although I am still a gluten free baker–it’s not my primary focus, and I’m baking less and less. so the blog title had to change and the word “life” seems to encompass what we’re all going through, yes? good or bad, it is life.
changing up the look of the blog just seemed like a natural next step as well. I’m going to focus on living simple, making changes to life that are healthy and cost effective focusing on wellness and sustainability.
