Move Your DNA has been one of my favourite books of last couple of years. One concept from it that I like to remember when I am internally complaining about having to haul water from the front garden to the back and wishing we had a tap more conveniently located is this: We are used to thinking about conveniences in terms of time-saving, but they are really movement-saving. They are things that make it so that you don’t have to move. (From this interview with Katy Bowman. Quote comes at 19.55min mark).
Still fighting a persistant strep throat infection, so I’ve been eating (actually, drinking) a lot of soft foods. I never want to see ice-cream again! This pumpkin soup made with a red kabocha+a butternut squash has been perfect.
