I THOUGHT SO

“The mind only knows its own point of view which it considers the truth.” Lately, because I’ve stopped watching and listening to popular media, I’ve had to find other things to listen to while out in my art studio.  James Taylor CD’s are one lovely option.  Others options include YouTube videos which feature some interesting…

ENOUGH

“When your cup is full stop pouring.” We have an obesity crisis.  And our bodies are getting fat too.  But aside from that we are weighed down by the quantity of the stuff that we own, or that owns us. I once heard that the fastest growing segment of the real estate market is storage…

FRUIT DELIGHT

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Leonardo Da Vinci I’ve been doing this post for almost two years now.  My goal was to post daily.  I can do it. What I can’t do is remain in the same mental state that I had when I started this blog.  Things change. First of all, I’m getting rather…

CASHEW CHEESE SAUCE

“I promise to miss you if you go away.” OK.  I made a promise to give you a recipe for a cashew cheese sauce.  I also wanted to begin this blog with a quote about promises but most of the quotes I found were maudlin.  I can live with the above quote.  I’m just a…

CAULIFLOWER NACHOS

“Variety is a positive requisite, even in the character of our food.”  John Ruskin Absolutely loving southwestern foods and determined to eat a mega amount of veggies can sometimes be challenging, unless I count tortillas, corn chips, and spicy cheese dip as veggies.  Good luck with that. That’s why I’m so excited, I just can’t…

VEGAN COTTAGE CHEESE

“The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” Gilbert K Chesterton Truthfully, I have nothing against regular cottage cheese.  But I do have something against a block of tofu sitting in the fridge and daring me to do something creative, or at least useful.  This recipe might be a bit of both.…

SCREEN TIME

“Fear is a manipulative emotion that can trick us into living a boring life.”  Donald Miller The other day I got a notice on my phone.  It felt the urge to tell/warn me that the previous week my screen time was down 67%.  I was off the screen an average of 1 hour and 1…

THE TABLE ARRIVED!

“All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.”  Sean O’Casey Oh, glory!  My art table arrived the other day.  Seeing I had such success with assembling  my new chair I knew the table would go together in about an hour.  How hard could it be?  I was about to find out!…

JAMBALAYA RICE

“Make every hour a happy hour.” Love this recipe because I happen to have 6 lovely pints of veggie broth that I made the other evening.  And what could be better on a cool fall day than some roasted veggies with a rice dish on the side.  So here’s a great rice dish. INGREDIENTS: 3 T…

CHAIR DISTRUCTIONS

“Never ask a blind man for directions.” For those of you who follow/read my blog, you may have noticed that I use the word “distructions”.  It’s a word that was coined by my youngest son when he was a wee one.  We were assembling something, probably a toy, and his advice, combining the words directions…
