Beloved and I out and about L.A.

Wwofing – Organic Farming Around the World


Explains how Wwolfing works.  I had never heard of this, but met both a wwolfer (coolest guy in the world) and a lady who hosts wwolfers when I did the Cob building workshop.  I immediately phoned my kiddoes and informed them they MUST try this.  I have now met people who have been overseas doing this or their children worked a farm in Ireland or Australia.  And, they learn organic farming techniques, permaculture, culture itself and adventure.  Love this idea.

Figured out how to get to work via bus – just two stops, but it is an hours’ ride each way. Walked to Cal State Northridge where I am able to buy a months’ bus pass, toured the beautiful campus and went to Vons groc store and bought fresh fruit and one recipe that I plan on sticking in crock pot to take to work tomorrow.

Middle of the day hot hot humid, so I cranked out my mister that I bought about a year ago from Lowe’s for $7, love this thing, I don’t have to run air conditioner (saving money) and it makes it comfortable.  Played with making an awning for my big window from some PVC I purchased previously from Habitat Restore , think it might work.  Little lonely today, happens sometimes.  It’ll pass.
