a snippet from my facebook today, thanking the ladies of my bachelorette weekend for a wonderful time. itinerary of what we did to be posted soon!
“I can finally write this after finally recovering (sort of…). Thank you to my best friends for making my bachelorette so memorable… or not. Everything was absolutely perfect. Having all my best friends in one place was such a treat (#kimtrit, that is). Seeing all your similarities and what ties you all to me in one place was enlightening and humorous as well. ❤ Thank you! Sylvia Melissa Jessica Janice Diane Marci P.S. Melissa is a beast behind wheels. She drove 17 hours straight to get us home after our flight was cancelled. Jess stayed up with her most of the way & I slept like a baby in the back 😉 This is a moment I felt like adults for once… just handing sht when it all went down.”

Flight of Man
In the shadows of the night illuminated by the still moon
A few minutes before the first break of the day when
The melodies of the nightingale or the song of the starling
Could be heard in the distant east fading with the sunrise
All I hear is the rumbling tune of the man-made sky bird
Born of materials unrefined from this earth fabricated for
Modern day drifters killing time for take-offs then landings
Only to repeat the cycle of waiting for departures and arrivals
But not of the sunrise or the birds of the night or even the
Raw wealth of the earth that brought us this far and this high
At first, I thought my blog would solely be about food and the environment because, well, I love both! But being practical now for the purposes of blogging– I love a lot of things and want to go off on more tangents about my current affairs and past lives to truly give you the picture of the whole me. I have plenty of passion and a never ending trail of words to express it. It’s time to start dreaming bigger.
Up above, I’m wearing my mom’s beautiful red dress. I haven’t seen my mom in fifteen years, but moments like these, when I slip into the only dress I have of her’s and it fits me ever so perfectly, I know I am her daughter.

15. Keep brown sugar soft: If you regularly fall victim to the brick in the pantry known as hardened brown sugar, try adding some lemon peel (with traces of pulp and pith removed) to keep it moist and pliable.
3. Clean your tea kettle: For mineral deposit build up in tea kettles, fill the vessel with water and a handful of lemon peels and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let sit for an hour, drain and rinse well.

love these food initiatives starting to appear in the US. hopefully initiatives won’t be a necessity in the future as healthy food and awareness of our environment will be a thing of the past.
