Pace Yourself

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Tis the season for raking leaves, stacking firewood, putting garden tools away, etc. My best advice is to stretch before and after, hydrate, take frequent breaks, and take a long hot bath or shower afterwards. The work doesn’t have to be done all at once. I guarantee it will wait for you!
Also, bend at the knees! Treat yourself to a massage if you can. It will be worth it in the long run!
Taking good care of yourself is good Feng Shui!

Fungi

Monday, October 5th, 2009

I recently went on a mushroom safari! Sue VanHook, a Skidmore College professor, spent two hours with a small group showing and telling about fungi. I have a new appeciation for the “fungus amongus”! We even cooked up a golden colored mushroom that is highly prized in gourmet circles. We made spore prints, too.
Sue is working with twp young scientists to find a way of making take-out containers from fungi…talk about biodegradable!
Learning a new use for something is good Feng Shui!
