Pool and BBQ day at the lodge = Team TLC + The Romano Duo + Robert and Samantha 💦💦💦💙💙💙

It was so good to see this one let loose and just play – the one with the green pool noodle. Caused my heart to jump for joy. And good to see Samantha getting to have fun too!!

I needed this day. A day to not worry about things …. money, health and well being of myself and my two kiddos, food, shelter, peace. A day to say, just for today everything is okay. Right now, in this moment, I shall not worry. Thank you for this day. 🙏🏼♥️♥️♥️🙏🏼

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!! 😋😋😋

Steaming Hot Sumatra and Potato Chili Bowl With Almond Butter Cocoa While the Guinea Pig Chews

May 5 2019:

Me. A hot steamy cup of organic Sumatra black coffee. A super delicious vegan super fruit muffin. Gorgeous trees outside the window. A most satisfying combination. 💙💙

May 7 2019:

That. Was. Delicious!!! Baked red potato smushed into a bowl of vegan chili, sliced open and topped with Miyoko’s “butter”, sweet onions, and Daiya cheese. I couldn’t even eat it all. Filling and YUM!!

May 11 2019:

Yummy find at Trader Joe’s. So. Good.

Do your bookmarks look like this?Thomas has Lovey, our rescue Guinea pig, give her stamp of approval to bookmarks, receipts, and any other bits of paper!

I once accidentally knocked a receipt into her house that I needed for a return. I felt like a child saying the dog ate my homework when I handed the chewed receipt to the cashier. Sorry. Our Guinea pig thought it was hers and chewed it! 😱🤣

Roux the Beautiful and So Is My Hair

April 16 2019:

Isn’t Roux (pronounced Roo) gorgeous? Another beauty I get to read out loud to when her human is out of town. 💛💛💛

Happy Birthday to me ….. still … Just had to share these birthday goodies just received. For years, I have been wanting to switch from the long time shampoo I’ve been using.

Last month I switched to bar shampoo and apple cider vinegar rinse and have been wanting to try this brand as I like the variety and the different essential oils used. Love it!!! Thank you to a sweet friend for continuing the celebration. 💖💖💖

Yesterday was my first time to use it. I was using a different brand for the last month and it did take my hair some time to adjust to shampooing with a healthier-for-the-hair-and-environment product. The hair has settled into it nicely now! I also love that when using a bar shampoo there’s no plastic bottle to toss when done!

I have one friend who always make sure to treat me to lunch and makes sure I get to treat myself to some lovelies (I have one more package on the way – YAY!!). Even if it’s way belated!

Blessings Abound


May 8 2015:

Oh my goodness!! What a blessed day! Set intention to be mindful and to know when I’m supposed to share with others. Ended up with a first client for a new business I have not even talked about because I shared specific information with her that I was moved to share. At that exact time she had just prayed for that specific information.

Met with a beautiful friend for coffee at Whole Foods. Shopped for a few items that I can only get there and Mike, a sweet employee stocking the shelves, gifted me a bag of spicy chips, the employees checking me out made a lovely fuss over making sure my items were bagged perfectly, one of Thomas’ friends gave us half dozen fresh eggs from his chickens, stopped to get the mail and someone mailed us 3 bottles of fish oil supplements, and I received two checks (one I knew about and the other was a surprise)!

Blessed, blessed, blessed day!!! Thank You! xoxo

Vegan Tacos and Lemon and Ginger Water and Meh-Shee-Ka

April 3 2019:

Mmmmm … That was so good!!! I’m in love with this seltzer water flavored with real lemon and ginger juice.

April 12 2019:

Finally, finally, finally got to eat here!! The birthday celebrations continue! Thank you Carolyn R Smith for my birthday lunch!! House of Mexica (Meh-Shee-Ka)

From the restaurant: “Meh-Shee-Ka – A Tribe of plant based Mexica united together to create Heaven on Earth through the powers of food, life, love, & light.”

From Me: A full vegan menu with a feel good vibe permeating the atmosphere. Our server (and also co-owner), Marv, was absolutely wonderful with an incredibly humble energy.

We split the asada fries to begin with … WOW!! So good!!! I had a burrito and Carolyn had a chimichanga. It was like a symphony of harmonious flavors performing a lovely concert in my mouth. One I did not want to end.

Thank you Carolyn for EVERYTHING! Thank you for treating me to lunch, to your company, and for treating me like a birthday queen. I love you and I love our friendship. 💜💜💜
