Genesis 1:29

Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food" Genesis 1:29.  I've been studying herbs ( North American) since the late 80's.  My great grandfather was an herbalist and so was my great great grandmother. In any event, this is my special tea. Herbal teas are great because you can tailor them to meet your body's particular needs. For example if you'd like to balance your blood sugar, add a tablespoon of cinnamon to your herbs or an equal part of some fenugreek. Fenugreek also aids in digestion. Yarrow is excellent for eradicating uterine fibroids. ( of course drinking herbal tea isn't a substitute for serious medical conditions, so please consult your physician). However, you can drink herbal teas to prevent certain ailments along with a healthy diet, exercise, and quiet/meditative time.

Yard Work

Just did some yard work. It's so refreshing and therapeutic to beautify/tidy up your immediate environment. I can't wait to see how it looks with the morning sun. Yep...I'm like that.! Ciao!

Tomatoes From My Neighbor's Garden

 Full of antioxidants, vitamins A & C, and beta carotene! My goodness I sure could tell the difference between a garden fresh tomato and a store bought one. My neighbor's tomato was much more denser and sweeter. I sliced one up and added some lemon pepper and viola! Thanks again A!

Some Of My Origami Creations

On the long way back from Sedona, I kept myself busy with Origami. Here are a few of my creations.


Arizona was a relaxing and informative trip. I mean I'm always learning and open to learning so I don't think there has ever been a time where I went to Arizona and DIDN'T learn something.  I hooked up with my cousin Jennifer in Tempe, AZ.  The highlight of my visit with Jennifer was when we took our children to "The Nest" on Wednesday morning. The Nest is a community of women that get together and chat and network. Across the street was the "Babymoon Inn."
Jennifer and I spent some quality time together along with our families. Our daughters played well together despite their huge age difference. Later on Wednesday, we headed to  Sedona. It was absolutely wonderful. The weather in Sedona was perfect. We hiked on various trails and visited the hummingbird man, Ross Hawkins.  I also worked on my Origami skills and made a few items too. I walked up to Bell Rock around 7am ish Thursday morning ( wasn't early enough) and spent some quiet time in meditation and prayer. I love staying by Bell and Courthouse Rock. Oak Creek Canyon  was one of the highlights of Sedona. Putting my feet in the Oak Creek too, although I don't care too much for the way the rocks and pebbles feel under my feet. Ouch! Stimulation my arse!
