The Mister and I spent most of last week preparing for our Summer Yard Sale Extravaganza. That's just hoopla-speak for garage sale. We merchandised and organized into the wee hours on Friday and opened shop for our first visitor at 6:45 a.m. It was a right success in my opinion and we even got see a few friends.
That evening, we had the pleasure of attending the Second Annual Soil to Soul Dinner, a knock-your-socks off farm-to-fork dinner about an hour out of the city. We dined alfresco, ate food within 50 miles of where we sat and communed with an eclectic mix of storytellers and like-minded individuals. More on that in my next blog post. It warms my heart just thinking about it.
On Sunday, I traded in my appetite for some brain food at the Balanced Bites Workshop, an all-day nutrition workshop hosted by Liz Wolfe and Diane Sanfilippo and had my mind sufficiently blown. For eight hours, I geeked out on nutrition, learning about things like blood-sugar regulation, proper insulin function and the history of the modern diet. Oh, and we talked a little about ancestral wisdom too.
So much fun on so many levels. I met new people, ate phenomenal food, made some money and learned new things. So much better than the normal couchsurfing in my underwear kinda weekend, although there's always room for that.
How was your weekend?
