doing the dishes.

who knew having your kitchen sink on the outs

would be so much fun. this was definitely

one of those glass half full moments. it had been a few

days and 

the dirty plates with remnants of old scrambled egg

were beginning to pile up along with the ball jars, 

silverware & wooden boards. we were not able to use

the sink at all or it began to flood. this is usually

a moment where i need to breathe deeply trusting that

all will be ok. what really happens looks something like

oh sh*&($*#&, oh god, oh fu*@&$(*@#....

it was flooding the garage and the smell was not

apricot colored roses everybody.

at the moment, the only thing holding me together

(as i heard the 

big splashing sounds of water in the garage)

is the kabbalistic thought 

that a flood means


so you can bring that on right about now! main office is where?

yeah, you got it, 

the kitchen!

so, that was fun.

after a few days, i could no longer keep the

pile going 

around the sink (it was killing me).

at dinner, i told the kids that we are not only

going to take our plates up tonight, we are going to 

take them out on the patio, hose them down and

use buckets, sponges & soap oh my!

they were really excited.

they wanted their own sponge

(fyi, if you want to do this tonight)

we set up a big bucket and put towels out.

i couldn't believe how much fun they were having

scrubbing all the plastic yellow bits of egg, strawberry 

stained wood boards and more... they really got into it.

it was the new evening meditation

(not that we have an old one)

o asked

can we do this every night?

i am sharing this because it was nourishing for each of us

in many ways: 

the simplicity of the fun, the 

feeling of the circle

of nourishment 

from gathering to cooking to 

cleaning where you

nourished from, 

doing it together, seeing how much they love to help,

to be apart of the process & how hard it was for them to stop.

i feel that i am always hungry for the

simplest things... this was one of them.

i would love to hear what is 


your kids and family these days?

big love beautiesxxxx
