It is getting nippier now and we can’t use our fireplace while we’re building the great room. But the hearth is built, and this week Archie is laying the tile. When it’s ready, the stove will be placed on it and we can have a fire again. One neat thing he did was make the hearth about two feet high so that one can sit on the hearth next to the stove for a quick warm up. Until then, extra sweaters and blankets are in order.
Speaking of extra – Living Light has not one but three opportunities to take FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods this October: October 1st will be here in Fort Bragg, California; October 15th will be in Austin, Texas; and the final one will be in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 20th. FUNdamentals is, indeed, one of the most fun classes we offer because you get to eat all day long. I kid you not! Our fabulous instructors spend the day demonstrating how to make all kinds of fabulous raw food and you get to sample all of it. Also included is a humongous salad bar for lunch. And then more samples – yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
If there’s one thing I get asked all the time here in the enrollment office of Living Light, it’s, “Are you ever going to have a class closer to where I live?” Well – if you live near Las Vegas, you’re in luck! We’re taking our FUNdamentals class on the road. We will be in Las Vegas on October 20th and will be able to teach this basic course in gourmet raw living foods to one hundred people! Keep an eye on our website for details, or better yet – subscribe to our newsletter to stay current on all the new and exciting things going on at Living Light. There are all sorts of fun things happening this summer and now some of us will be heading to the city of lights for a day of vibrant living. I wish they needed an enrollment specialist along for the ride!
The last time I was in Vegas it was to see the Grateful Dead. That was a long strange trip. But – super fun! We stayed at the Flamingo and went to both concerts. I hear the city has changed quite a bit since then. That’s okay – so have I. Anyway – as you Southwesterners make your summer plans, leave some room for a trip to Las Vegas in the fall to begin your raw food journey with the FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods, brought to you by Living Light!
After cruising up the coast to the Newport/Lincoln City area of Oregon to spend time with my sister for her birthday, I’m back at work. It’s funny how just a little time away helps to refresh our spirits, especially if the time away includes people that we love. And so, coming back to work this morning, I decided to resume a positive habit that I’d somehow lost track of in recent years. I started a new gratitude journal, which is really just a little notebook that you can carry along with you, and include five things that you are grateful for each day. My first two things for the day were as follows: 1. My favorite parking space was open and 2. Everyone at work is happy and cheery–super yay as we say here at Living Light, thanks to Mary Elizabeth. It really can be as simple as focusing on small positive things, and the exercise, although deceptively simple, can bring quick and amazing results.
Speaking of amazing results, we love the new people who have come to work at Living Light. It seems that our family is getting even better and more loving, which translates into a great atmosphere for our students, angels and staff. And even people who go away for awhile often come back to join us and keep the positive energy going.
We are going to be doing some great FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods™ on the road classes coming up soon with three top notch Living Light Chef Instructors, including the ever delightful and talented Amber West, the personable and erudite Bennett Mclellan, and the energetic, inimitable Brenda Hinton. Stay tuned for more details….meanwhile, close at hand is the upcoming annual event World Vegetarian Day in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. If you are anywhere in the area, don’t miss this event! The weather has been superb lately, and the eleventh annual ode to all things veg should be loads of fun. Our own Martine Lussier will be there, along with the aforementioned Amber and Brenda, and they’ll be passing out samples of delicious Chocolate Pecan Bites on Saturday from 2:15 to 3:15 PM. Delicious desserts including those yummy Chocolate Pecan Bars, Coconut Dream Bars, and Chocolate Cardamom Cake will be for sale both days!
