Once upon a time in a quaint little village in the south of France, there was a place where everything kind and soft and gentle was born...She would be called, " Anjolie", meaning the Garden Angel. It wasn't long after she had arrived into this peaceful little garden, that she began to wander in it, looking for soft petals to lie upon, to rest her curls and to dream for a while as she stared at the clouds. She was often found to be picking up empty garden snails, for she was not afraid of the beauty that surrounded her there. This was something that made her giggle, and smile and come alive with joy! These became little houses where her rolly polly bugs could find shelter and lady bugs would stay for a while to catch their breaths and then be carried away. It wasn't long before Anjolie would climb on her olive tree perch, and swing her legs with excitement over another days findings in her secret garden where she could be free to play while the butterflies danced around her curly head...
The King of Clouds did not disappoint today...When I look out my back door and find this most amazing display in the sky, I think that I might like to fly among these clouds, or at least I wish that I could. My stomach is actually too weak to fly on I kite, or a parachute, or even a roller coaster.
Train wrote a song called "When I look to the sky", as well as several songs on the album such as, " I Love every Color"...The album is called, My Private Nation, and includes many hits you will recognize.
Download from i tunes and escape, dream, or just take a few minutes wishing or letting your mind wander!
"When I look to the sky", is 3:59 minutes long. I promise you, you will not regret it!
Gotta love this guy! Not only is he adorable, funny, kind and big hearted, but he's given himself to the Military !He's a fighter alrighter! He can leap tall buildings...Some of us know what I'm referring to, other's may wonder. His spirit amazes me...the way he jumps in with both feet, barely thinking twice...Perhaps he's alway's been a Marine at heart. Tim, here's to you, I am so proud of you and what you stand for, I support you...Love You, and Appreciate your willingness to serve our country! This excludes any of my convictions about the government, because THIS is about You and your big HEART!!! It's showing little nephew. Okay, wait...maybe I have a soft place in my heart for him since my mom and dad met at El Toro Marine base.
Can't wait to see you next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX
Okay... so I was in a strange mood when I did this...I'm a multi tasker what can I say? It's one of those strange farmville things that I have talked about...We feel happy, playful, creative, whatever, and just do funny things to amuse ourselves when it's rainy outside...Try it, you will be strange too. You might even surprise yourself. Or not!
I will share this very simple recipe: You only need a few basics from your pantry:
Garlic powder( if desired)
Soy sauce, or Tamari(wheat free soy sauce) preferably reduced sodium,
A bag of mixed (these were .99c) vegetables,
a bag of bean sprouts, found in the produce section, and some
grape seed oil for frying.
Now heat that skillet extra hot, add a small amount of oil, and toss in veggies you have chosen to use, and the sprouts, give it about 2-3 minutes, while moving constantly with the handle in a back and forth motion. Toss in a pinch of garlic, ginger,( to suit your own tastes), and a splash of soy sauce, and voila!
It was just one of those things that I had to do! Sometimes the spirit moves me...Have you ever wished for something and pretended it was so.....set a place for someone who can't be there?
May sound strange, but if you were alone, and thought about someone you missed, you might do it. Let your self play! Let yourself by giving permission to your playful side...Of course we know it's make believe, but isn't that why we go to movies and respect actors who get to play at being another character??? Life's a stage! Play it! Don't forget to make your friend a nice cup of Yerba Mate' Tea ...because it's good for you and tastes good hot or cold!
