Monday Musing, Making it work

Life gets busy, you wonder if anyone is listening to the message you are trying to send, but if you don’t speak at all how will anyone know? In an age of instant gratification for almost every need, there can be a lot of “noise” which voice do you listen to? Which commercial with the…

It’s a New Year, why not?

“I have made reservations for us at ______, for New Years, I hope you will go.” He assured me that they had “things” I could eat as he had explained that there were dietary needs in his group. This was a text I got from my friend a few days before New Year. My mind…

Timely Tuesday

I haven’t blogged in a while. There a few things that have been put on the “back burner”. I could use the excuse that my house is torn up, literally and that will be the one today! I finally decided to get new flooring… 11 years later. When I got this house, I hated the…

Monday Musings…. Cheesecake make over

The origin of cheesecake is uncertain, but it is believed that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 BC. A recipe for cheesecake was found in a Roman treatise around 200 BC. Centuries later, cheesecake is still a favorite dessert, however if you are trying not to eat dairy, what…

I’m musing, even though it’s not Monday

Yesterday was Labor day, and while I “labored” over almost 30 miles on my bike, I otherwise took a break, rested, chilled! I ate a huge plate of yummy dairy free nachos covered in black beans, greens, avocado oh my!Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting a little Not so Cheesy workshop. What a fun…

Monday Musings… Bacon, Bacon, Bacon! Maybe

This past weekend where I live, the annual Bacon Fest was held. Vendors gather at a local venue with live music, and everything bacon. Other meats wrapped in bacon, bacon ice cream, chocolate bacon, I’m sure bacon beer, you get the idea. For obvious reasons this is one festival I have never attended. Don’t get…

Monday Musings… Ice Cream makeover

It’s been awhile, and quite frankly I feel like I have stage fright as I sit here looking at the blank screen, hoping the words I share are inspiring. One of my fears is that I will ramble on. Recently I lost a best friend too soon, then coming up on the year anniversary of…

’tis the season…

The photo text I received from my sister Cindy was one of her oldest daughter, athletic basketball player laying on an exam table in sweats… it’s the flu, pray, this is a BIG week! As most of you know if you have read this blog for any time, I don’t get the flu shot. (see…

Monday Musings… It’s a little corny

Okay… I thought I was being a somewhat witty and creative with the title of this blog, yet it probably falls a little flat. I am distracted by the bright sun outside calling me to hit the pavement, or just soak in the beauty of the morning. So much has been going on and I…

Monday more musings… the rest of the story

It’s July… mid summer, full of sun, thunderstorms and finishing lines for me. I set out over the last year to tackle Yoga teacher training (11 months), and then added in an online Plant Based cooking class (6 months). The weekend of July 12th was my last yoga teacher training weekend. It was a weekend…
