Weekly sales, and Friday #gladitudes

Friday ‪#‎gladitude‬… late…
A GF restaurant that makes cupcakes!
My dying kitty still being cuddly and purring. Not too sad, she’s very old, and frail, but may outlive us all. I’ve been prepared to lose her any minute for over a year.
Old friends popping by out of nowhere, and guess what? They just got into the same shit you’ve gotten into since you last saw them!  (permaculture, nothing illegal)
Foggy mornings where the fog freezes to the tree branches making a world of carved crystal.
My editor having only 3 comments on my novel, one of which was…”more?”

That’s about it, this week.  Most sales are on crap food.

Since I hate posting only a couple of lines, I am feeling free to wax on about the permaculture course I’m taking online.  I mean, it is my blog, after all. 

I am taking a free 72 hour (plus hands on design work) online course through the Regenerative Institute.  All of the lectures are free (if a bit boring) but the certification costs about $500.  Mind you, you don’t need to be certified to design and build your own permaculture paradise.

I also want to get my herbalism degree/ chartered whats-it.  And build my spice, herb and salve business.  I’m sure you see this coming?  A permacultured happy little farm with perennial food crops, an edible forest and a medicinal meadow!  A plant it once and mostly not have to fuss over it, self sustaining business. 

Which reminds me, I must get the workshop finished so that I can make a few gallons of herbal oils for my salves and creams.
