Tonight I’m on my own, so I am going to check out Earth Voice, Food Choice.  It popped up as a suggested movie for me on Amazon, and looks pretty interesting.  It is a documentary/lecture that talks about our reliance on air, water, and dirt–and how we are destroying it with our modern day practices.

It’s in a lecture form, so I can feel like I am taking a class and still be in my p.j.’s.  Ha.

Amazon Prime Members can watch Earth Voice, Food Choice for free.

Let me know what you think if you decide to watch it–or if you have already seen it.  Did you love it? Hate it? Can’t wait to watch it over and over?

Peace out Girl Scouts & have yourself a great weekend,

~Mavis

Tonight The Girl and I are watching The Dark Side of Chocolate.  The recommendation comes from One Hundred Dollars a Month reader, Kathryn.  She wrote:

Mavis,

I enjoy your blog so very much. I notice that you often have coupons for chocolate and I would like to encourage you (in your busy life!) to take a look at Fair Trade chocolate. Here is a documentary about where our non-fair trade chocolate comes from. Thanks for taking a look (if you can, whenever you have time).

Thanks for the suggestion, Kathryn, I happen to have time today.

The documentary is FREE to watch.

Let me know what you think if you decide to watch it–or if you have already seen it.  Did you love it? Hate it? Can’t wait to watch it over and over?

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Food Beware:  The French Organic Revolution.  It is a documentary {mostly in subtitles, as a fair warning} that explores the French people’s concern with pesticides and the dangers of modern day farming on the health of their people.  I am super curious to get another country’s take on something that is concerning to me too.  I am also hoping that they will show some of their proposed solutions to the problem.

Amazon Prime Members can watch Food Beware:  The French Organic Revolution for free.

A big thanks to reader Lisa who recommenced The Weight of the Nation, “Nashville Takes Action:  A City Battles Obesity.  It is a several part series done by HBO.  This episode is about what the city is doing to battle the obesity crisis.  It highlights people and city programs that are striving to combat the epidemic.  I don’t know about you, but I love these documentaries.  I always feel so motivated to make little changes in my own family’s eating and lifestyle–in the name of good health.

I found the full episode, so you can watch it right here for FREE.  {Yay!} or Amazon Prime Members can watch The Weight of the Nation, “Nashville Takes Action:  A City Battles Obesity”  for free HERE.

Friday Night at the Movies – In Search of Beethoven

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch In Search of Beethoven.  It’s a documentary about the life of Beethoven, and how his work relates to modern day music.  I love watching anything that shows people who are truly gifted in their element.  It always leaves me inspired to be better, but since I only play the tambourine {and by play, I mean, I bought one at a garage sale this year} I think I will just settle for watching this one in awe.

Fire Alarm Goes Off in Mavis’ Hotel Room

As I mentioned a little a awhile ago in this mornings edition of Mornings with Mavis, I was in San Francisco, California over the weekend for a gardening conference. My buddy Harriet and online boyfriend Ryan from Botanical Interests was there, as well as about 75 other garden enthusiasts.

After taking a photography class and touring 5 gardens yesterday, Harriet and I got back to our hotel room late and were getting ready to go to sleep when the fire alarm went off.

I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve been in a hotel and a fire alarm has gone off {too many!} but this was Harriet’s first “emergency”experience so she was a little freaked out. Me? Not so much.

mavis butterfield

I think over the past 3 days, I’ve gotten a combined 10 hours of sleep. So to say I was a little out of it when this video was made, would be the understatement of the year.

My life is crazy. I can’t sit still. I drink too much tea and I don’t get enough sleep.

But you know what? I can sleep when I’m 80.

Life is what you make it.

So get out there and have some fun.

Even if it does mean you’ll end up forgetting to put your bra on before walking down 8 flights of stairs, and then talking to strangers in the street.

Tonight my buddy Lola and I  plan on watching Winged Migration.  It’s a documentary that took nearly 3 years to film and follows several species of birds on their migrations.  It doesn’t just show the migration, though, it also follows them before they head off, while they look for food and prepare their babies for the journey.  It’s supposed to be a really beautifully done documentary.
