Summer Hygge

It is finally feeling like summer. As I plant more seeds and thin out the rouge dill/fennel/borage/mustard/cilantro I am adding some minutes of self care and hygge to today’s gardening. I’m hygging in the shade with some coffee cake, coffee, beach playlist, and flowers thinned from the garden.

I enjoyed my winter holiday hygge challenge and have been tying to make my breaks a little more special.

Snacks for flights (Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Soy (Protein)-Free and some Nightshade-Free)

Traveling with Celiac and food allergies always take more planning a preparation.

For the I bought chips, chocolate, and other sweets for the flights.  I bought enough safe snacks for the flight to Denver and the return flight.  I put half in my checked bag for the return flight.

 

For this trip I bought my favorite BoBo’s Bars.  I like the original and the Apple Pie flavors. I like to carry three in my carry-on for flights.  I bought my nightshade eating child Kettle Chips, and for me Heart Keenwah “Herbs de Provence”  .  For treats I had Sunflower Butter Cups Free 2 B, and one mint cup, some Junior Mints, CoComels, and Pumpkin Seed barkTHINS.

 

I was pleasantly surprised to find two of our staples at the Denver airport on the way back.

One thing I learned is that some granola type bars (like my beloved BoBo’s) can cause your bag to be searched.  During one of my last trips the TSA agent (who knew what BoBo bars were!) had told me to put all my food in a separate bag inside my carry-on and have it go through the x-ray machine separately.  When they asked if I had any snack bars I was able to remove the separate bag and send it through on it’s own.

What do you take with you on your flights for snacks?  Do you buy anything in the airport?  Happy allergy travels!

 

Happy February!

I’ve been going over my January 2019 Wish List. I did almost everything.

I did not order any seed catalogs since I am trying to minimize the amount of paper coming into my home, but I did look at them online and checked out a few gardening books from the library.

With all the travel I did this month and the multiple days off of school from weather, I did not volunteer anywhere new. I did do some research and hope to check this off early this month.

I did make hot chocolate, had an amazing Vision Board weekend retreat, took a walk in the snow, made chili for the nightshade eaters, made rocks with my words for the year, read a winter setting book, donated unused holiday decoration, and had many fires in the fireplace.

I have always made lists. There are multiple ones on my counter at all times and my planner is full of them. Mostly they contain thing I have to do for my, job, my kids, household chores, and appointments to make.

I wanted to start doing more things that made me happy, started in December with my Hygge moments. A list of events that made me move forward through each month/season with intention and purpose.

For February I want to enjoy the winter, celebrate the holidays, and of course cook some wonderful gluten-free/dairy-free treats.

Happy February.
