Are you pregnant?
Do you have a pregnant friend or family member? Maybe you know someone that is trying to have children?
Ina Mae’s Guide to Childbirth by Ina Mae Gaskin is by far the best book on birthing. I buy 10 copies at a time and just give them away to friends, families, acquaintances and even strangers that are going to give birth.
This is what my grandfather; John McBride had to say back in the day:
“The Problem with children these days is they don’t spend enough time in nature”
As the first Parks and Recreation Director of Solano County he decided he had the power to do something about this problem.
He created a nature camp for kids and named it after the creek that it was held on. Camp Ulatis has been going strong for 50 years at the Pena Adobe in Vacaville, California.
In the summer of 1966 it cost $15 to send your child to Camp Ulatis all day for two weeks solid. Camp had two overnight campouts that included cook-offs and camp fires complete with songs, skits and pranks.

I love my hedge of pineapple sage.
It blooms in December and brings the beautiful red throated hummingbirds to my porch each day.
The deep healing red that fills my yard is so nurturing and inspiring. I love having these vibrant red flowers greet me each day as I open the front door.
