A few of my favorite crunchy mama bloggers have changed their weekly email formats to include some cool headers that I thought I’d enjoy using for a permies post to get to know many of you out there better. Upon thinking of a title, I seemed to burst into the show tune “Getting to Know You” from the King & I... you’ll have to excuse me as sometimes that does happen.
Some of the cool headers are...

And since many of us permies have fun/interesting projects going almost all the time, I’ve added this one:
What I’m experimenting with/Something new I’m trying:
So, here are some of mine:
What I’m reading:When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor...and Yourself & Becoming Whole: Why the opposite of poverty isn’t the American dream & The Bible Project Daily Reading Plan
What I’m listening to: Getting to Know You from the King & I, plus a worship playlist I put together
What I’m watching: I just watched the documentary Playing With Fire and I really enjoyed it.
Quotes that made me think: Something like “Tus pensamientos... ponerles pies” My friend was explaining we need to put actions to our thoughts to give them value. (Literally give them feet... I’m probably not getting his phrasing correct but it was inspiring to stop just thinking about my ideas and actually DO them! Hence this post which was in my notepad since April.)
Products I’m loving: 7th generation fragrance free dish soap & Dr. Bronner’s bar soap, the InstantPot
What I’m experimenting with/Something new I’m trying: The water here in Baja California for bathing is pretty salty and mineral heavy so I’m using drinking water for the final rinse of my hair to see if it causes less breakage... for less than 50 cents once a week, it’s seemed worth it so far. I kinda wish I could setup a system to do a final rinse of my whole body with the drinking water... maybe just a water jug in the shower for now.
What I’m reading: the Christian Bible, and Permies
What I’m listening to: Melissa K Norris, Jill Winger
What I’m watching: I don't watch tv so I look up Joel Salatin Speaches.
Quotes that made me think: aboriginals ate about 3000 types of food and Americans eat about 20.
Products I’m loving: A new 30 amp mppt controller, I get almost twice the energy now.
What I’m experimenting with/Something new I’m trying: Teosinte crossing with old lines of corn. Einkorn wheat for bread and animal feed and fodder. A yellow amaranth to go with my old line of purple to make better chicken feed. Nicotiana rustica to kill Japanese beetles. I use tuberous plants like Jerusalem artichoke to attract skunks. Hopefully the skunks will help eat the beetle larva too.
I was not raised religious, but when I went to find out why people are so evil to each other I found God. I enjoyed reading your articles at your blog. I like it when people that are so different, yet can understand each others views.
