I cleared a space at the dining room table to start my journey. I sat down with The Feng Shui Journal – A guided workbook to bring harmony into your Life (by Teresa Polanco). I made myself a cup of mint tea in my “angel” mug (as I know I will need all the extra help I can get). Continue reading Starting my Feng Shui Journey
I need to change my life and I plan to use Feng shui to do it…
I am so glad that you’ve decided to join me on the journey to find my new “Karma”. Anyone who knows me will tell you that it is likely to be a bumpy ride.

But smell is my favorite – that sweet, yeasty aroma. And, I certainly love the taste of fresh home-made bread – with butter and jam, toasted or as sandwiches.
The other major reason for making home-made bread is that I know that the ingredients that I choose are natural and healthy for me. Continue reading The Reasons Why I Love Making Bread
