Reaching Out, Authenticity, and Some Pretty Amazing Chocolate Crepes

I’m thinking I need to have chocolate crepes for breakfast more often. When is chocolate not a good idea? Uhhhh..never. I woke up  feeling like I can only guess what a curmudgeonly 90 year old feels like. Stiff and tired and brain foggy and grumpy. When…

Chocolate Chai Tea Latte & a bit of This & That

How has the first month of the New Year been going for you? January has been a bit of a crazy month for our family. One thing after another it seems. We lost my mom’s brother unexpectedly. He had a staff infection in his heart…

Time To Rest & Reflect ~ My Corner Of The World

Another Christmas has come and gone. I am always a little sad about it as it’s my favorite time of year. I’ve even started decorating prior to Thanksgiving to try to stretch it out as long as possible. The snow, the music, the baking,…

Headache & Migraine Relief Roller

You may be one of the lucky few who never suffer from an occasional headache or migraine. If that’s so, you can also use this essential oil combination for sore, tense muscles, and nausea. But, for those of us who do have those dreadful…

Slumber Bedtime Potion

I’m happy to say I survived four days of granola and nuts. I don’t get along with nuts and grains very well. We have a love hate relationship. I love them, and they hate me. I tied and labeled the last of it a…

Homemade Intensive Organic Night Cream for Face & Neck

I have a lot of people tell me they aren’t creative or crafty in or out of the kitchen. I don’t believe that’s true. I believe that all of us, no matter who we are, have a little bit of art inside us of…

Let’s Do Some Catching Up!

Well here we are already onto the last day of November. I had intended on doing at least a couple posts of fabulous Thanksgiving foods for you, but somehow November slipped right by at lightening speed. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Probably the best…

Pity Party For One, Averted ~ My Corner Of The World

How’s your summer going? Overall, ours has been great. Hot and sunny, and mostly relaxing, just the way I like it. In late spring I went on another pulsing dose of antibiotics. I’d been in a flare since November and it had finally gotten…

From Patio To Table ~ My Corner Of The World

You’ve heard the term, “From Farm To Table”? Well at my house, it’s From Patio To Table. In the last months of winter we purchased garden boxes to place all around the patio. Then, we filled them with organic soil and the second the…

Grilled Lunch & Garden Therapy

When I hear someone say they “hate” to garden, the hair on the back of my neck stands up. I have to seriously question whether we are going to be able to be friends. What’s next…they’re going to tell me they don’t like to…

A Big Tight Hug & An Amazing Avocado Dressing

On Monday we found out that my schizophrenic aunt, Nan, had been evicted from her apartment a week prior and had been taken to a shelter by the apartment management. The management had my mother’s phone number in her file and never bothered to…

A Special Prayer Request & A Shameful Mental Health Care System

My schizophrenic aunt has been missing for two weeks. She was evicted from her apartment two weeks ago, and none of us were informed until two days ago. Evidently, she told the apartment complex she could no longer pay her rent and they supposedly…
