Yesterday we went and saw Deepak Chopra for 10 bucks at an outdoor amphitheater... it was a lot of fun. He's like a comedian and we laughed so much. His talk was 3 hours long and very interesting. He talked a lot about the space between vibrations.... ORMUS????

Today I am starting to freak out. One lady in my due date club on a natural parenting forum... her water broke!! :O !!! I am SO not prepared for this! Today I'm going OCD and making a thousand lists with a timeline to do and get everything... eek.

We have 6 feral cats living in our backyard. We don't know what to do. There are no more no-kill shelters here that will accept them. Animal Control will bring cages and we have to trap them then they pick them up and put them up for adoption. We think we have to do that. They are completely wild, I can't risk being near them if they scratch or bite me and on top of that they are ruining the planting we have done in the backyard. David wanted to quit feeding them so they'd go away but the mother just sat on our doorstep waiting and I started bawling and couldn't go through with it. (she's been around here for years, the previous owner of the house fed her, she doesn't come anywhere near humans though.. we had no idea she had kittens too) The kittens are getting big -- they are sooo cute. :( The whole thing makes me sad.

I'm an bottomless pit today. I've only been up less than two hours and have eaten 4 pears, 2 apples, hot chocolate (cacao), chia with banana and lucuma and a lara bar. Whoa! Maybe it's time for another baby growth spurt...

Raw Spirit

What a fun weekend! It was almost overwhelmingly big there... I couldn't find friends I knew where there... just never ran into them lol... I loved David Wolfe's talks (he's always so inspirational & fun), Nick Good's shaman storytelling, the panel (above pic) in which some members of the audience got a bit nasty (not the place to do that!). We got a really neat chakra doll from Brigitte Mars' booth and I got lots of cool used hippie-type clothes from the Date People's (I love them) booth. We got seriously cacao'd out and all the food was pretty good (once you got to it... loooooooonnnnnnnnggggggggggg lines). We managed to only take TWO pictures!?!? Sedona was so beautiful, the venue was great with lots of grass and water and ducks strolling around everywhere. It was fun, but much different than last year. Last year was magical. I did better than I thought I would and only got really tired a few times, which of course was easily fixed by all the chocolate and superfood samples everywhere. Got the new book 'Amazing Grace' and am loving it :)

Yesterday David got me my xmas present early... I was so surprised because it is SO expensive... I have wanted one for a long time and he got the new one with 160gb (wayyy bigger than our computer...) I had just went through 4 portable cd players (I don't know what their problems were) listening to my Hypnobabies and Holosynch every day and I guess he decided enough is enough..

I love it. :)
I can't believe I have just a little over 2 months before baby (or, well, when baby says so). I'm feeling very un-prepared, even though all I do is read and prepare! My 2 sister's-in-law are having a baby shower for me next month, I hope people get cloth diapers and such that are on my registry.

This is still what I want to finish reading while the baby is still kickin' and punchin' away in me:


Tomorrow Raw Spirit YAY!!!!!!! Can't wait for the raw chocolate party with two of my favorite people EVER, David Wolfe and Nick Good. . . .

I made some super potent superfood balls to take for us 3 (me, D, babe). They have: cacao nibs, cacao powder, spirulina, Nature's First Food, maca, tocos, lecithin, hemp protein, Thor's protein powder, a LOT of bee pollen, agave, honey, reishi, cayanne, cinnamon, sea salt, chlorella, lucuma, mesquite powder, Greener Grasses, cacao hydrosol, coconut oil, carob, cacao butter, macadamia nuts, brazil nuts, biodynamic raisons... whew... I think that's it!

And they actually taste good.

Finally getting settled in! I LOVE our house so much... poor old thing though, so much stuff to fix. Was neglected :( Friday morning we leave for Sedona for the Raw Spirit Festival.... last year was a blast! I'm really looking forward to it but am a bit bummed out because I am the size of a whale, have to pee every 15 minutes (6 hour car trip!!!!!!!), and worry I won't be a whole lotta fun. Oh well.

This is the cat's cabinet. She always has her own for her stuff. (She gets very possesive about her things :)

I don't know how to change the date on my camera ??*^!#. This is what she does in it ---- she gets stoned. She opens the catnip herself and digs in!

I love my catbaby.

Ok, this is what pregnancy has done to my feet. I wear a SIZE 7 shoe.... until now... I've been wearing very crappy big tennis shoes and flip flops and needed something to wear to the festival this weekend so I don't feel like Frankenstein...

The only thing that would fit me is SIZE 10.... eeegad!!
