LIFE FOR LATER

What are YOU doing to keep your mind off the current lockdown nightmare? Spring cleaning, for sure, came early in my house. I have organized, cleaned, and food-prepped everyday until night fall, when I look forward (more than ever before) to a glass of wine and what ever Netflix program […]

COVID-19 HOARDER

I panicked! Ok, call me a hoarder. The thought of not having fresh, crunchy, juicy celery, freaked me out. I saw these beauties still in the produce section of a yet to be mobbed market, like the pretty girl left standing by the dance floor not being asked to dance. […]

COUGH SOOTHER

Nothing soothes a cough better than lemon and honey, but this cough syrup is on steroids! This pot of seemingly trash, with end cuttings from a heap of citrus, a cluster of fresh oregano (like, from my own potted variety), and raw honey is exactly what this monster Coronavirus doesn’t want […]

CITRUS HACKS FOR THE COVID-19

ROAD TRIP: A DETOUR IN LIFE

Rarely in life does a mom get the opportunity to spend quality time with her adult children, especially those with bustling families of their own. But I am about to do just that! Having raised four amazing children as a single mom, life moved so fast from one phase of […]

VALENTINES ISN’T JUST FOR LOVERS

Valentines Day, some say, is a silly day! Buy flowers. Buy candy. Buy love… No, I am not a cynical person, quite the contrary; I am a Lover of Life, and all its many loves. But unless you have something to market, ie sell, on Valentines Day, don’t you think […]

OFFERING GRATITUDE TO ARTISTS

Motion Picture. Theater. Storytelling. Drama. Laughter. Fashion. Music. Entertainment. Many years ago, these 2 artsy brothers entered my life.
