Currently Reading with Vegan Tamales and Smashed Potatoes

June 2 2019:

Currently reading. A couple of them, I’m reading for a second or third time.

Incredibly excited about reading the book on top! As I’ve interviewed the author on Meeting the Authors and can’t wait for her interview to post!!

I’ve just barely started it, yet, already loving it. Knew I would!

Most delicious lunch I’ve had in a while. Vegan tamales topped with daiya cheese and spicy salsa. So yum …

Some of the most delicious mashed potatoes I’ve ever tasted. Mashed with skins on along with a handful of corn and dashes of Umami seasoning and sea salt.

Piled high, topped with a pat of Miyoko’s butter, and sprinkled with Daiya cheese. Anchored with a couple of delicious trees (what Lillian called broccoli when she was young). That was my dinner … with a yummy salad. And I am so full! Will be having that again!! 😋😋😋

Peaceful Summer by Lillian Darnell – Fundraising

Peaceful Summer by Lillian Darnell …. There’s still time to participate in Lillian’s fundraiser and get a custom poem created especially for you .. This one was created for a lovely supporter in Tasmania.

Here’s the beautiful comment from Patricia once she received her custom poem …

Dear Camilla and Lillian

Thank you! The poem is everything I hoped for and more, and paints a brilliant word-picture. I look forward v. much to seeing the image, and know it, too, will be special.

As we approach Winter Solstice here in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s particularly lovely to be reminded of the pleasures and promise of summer.

Peace.
Patricia

The donation amount is completely up to you. Go here to learn why Lillian is fundraising and also if you’d like a custom poem of your own.

Movie Night: Sully

June 1 2019:

Team member C movie night: “Sully”

Based on the true story of the commercial airplane which was forced to land in the Hudson in 2009. With all 155 people on board surviving. 🙏💜

I truly enjoyed the acting, was glued to it, and it was interesting to learn more about this event.

Thomas and Lilian sat this one out. 😃⭐️

Grounding in the Beauty of Nature

May 28 2019:

It’s been too many days without a walk. Finally. And since it’s been several days, I stood in this spot, under this tree, with this view. I removed my shoes and let my bare feet touch, skin to earth. I bent down and touched the ground with my fingertips. Grounding. Natures cure for whatever ails. Thank you Mama Nature. 🙏💚💙💚💙💚💙🙏

Couldn’t help myself.

Went for another walk after visiting Jack & Mittens, the two cats I care for when their human is out of town.

It was incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Ahhhhh …

May 31 2019:

Deeply grateful to Mother Nature for the beauty during the long walk today.

And deeply grateful to the young man sitting in the shade with his guitar playing and singing The Beatles She Loves You.

I wanted to take a photo. I wanted to tell him thank you. I wanted to stand and listen (and dance). Yet, I didn’t want to interrupt the zone. It brought pools of liquid love and gratitude to my eyes as I continued walking and taking it in.

Keep doing what you’re doing young man. Keep doing it. And, I thank you! 🙏💞💞💞🙏

Lillian Darnell Senior Graduation Photographs and Online Celebration

May 29 2019:

First round of senior/graduation photos for Lillian. She’s wants photos at a different location too! Ha!

This was the perfect spot for the first set. The little garden behind the library. We’ve been coming here ever since she was 5 years old.

I’ve taken tons of photos of the three of us in this little garden throughout the past 12 years. 🙏🎉💗💗💗🎉🙏
