Paper Hell – Save the Trees!

I just feel like ranting. I’m facing mounds of paper that need to be organized and I hate it. Bills, notices, and don’t get me started on the medical paperwork connected to Obamacare. I Love Trees! I just went out and bought another box of file folders to organize all this paper and it made…

Converge – Weekly Photo Challenge

Like minded people converge to share, learn and play together. They are drawn together at a certain place and point in time, sharing a similar destination or goal. They become similar, yet they are so different. Thoughts, hearts, minds converge, are changed yet remain the same. For more on Converge: from The Daily Post – Weekly…

Cranberry Delight

I’ve always wanted to make fresh cranberry sauce, or anything with cranberries minus the high fructose corn syrup and other additives. Even though I generally don’t like to cook, I do like to experiment with taste and good nutrition. I get this idea in my head of something that would be healthy and I think,…

Meditation My Way

People often think of meditation as being something you have to take time out of your schedule to do, something you have to learn, or something you have to practice. I suppose it is that way for many people, but I prefer to think of it as something natural that we have always been inclined…

Fast & Easy Eggplant

I have an Eggplant fetish. No one else in my house likes it but I just can’t get enough of it. Stir fried Eggplant with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, lots of garlic and red pepper flakes. Lots of basil too, a little oregano and some black pepper. Mmmm… 1 cup of cubed or cooked Eggplant has…

Yoga Bed

My yoga classes fell by the wayside last winter when I got a job with an unpredictable schedule. That seems to be a recurring theme in my life, unpredictable. So I’ve always struggled to keep an exercise routine going. However, one thing that does work for me is doing a little yoga before getting out…

Soup du Jour

The weather turns cold or rainy and I think of a yummy warm bowl of soup to relieve the aches in my bones. Rather than opening a can, I create a quick and healthy pot full of deliciousness that lasts for days. Fast, easy and intuitive – that’s my cooking motto. Here’s how it works:…

In the Interest of Ever-Green

Ecology, Eco-friendly, Sustainability, Renew, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle, and any other slogan you can think of that relates to going Green, the environmental movement, preserving and sustaining life on earth – I’m all for it, always have been. I was one of the first Floridians to buy a solar panel for my rooftop in the 1980’s.…
