Ease into Summer ~

These yummy mushrooms grow on my brother's property upstate Kent, NY.
My brother calls this picture :: 'The three amigos' for obvious reasons.
(Yellow Morel - Morchella esculenta).
He made them for me .. just a little butter, salt & pepper .. mouth watering.!

The second picture is a favorite dish from our childhood .. that my Grandma would cook for us. We called it .. 'tomato's and eggs' though aka eggs in purgatory', this was a dish during the depression era. Saute some fresh garlic in olive oil, chop up the tomatoes, salt, pepper, fresh basil .. add the eggs , oh boy.!!

Those were bottled tomatoes and fresh herbs from the garden. Yum!

Navigating Food Labels::
Did you know the label "100 Percent Natural" has different meanings for chicken fingers, cookies and various other foods? Or that those "cage-free" chickens might not ever have seen the outdoors? Here's a guide to help sort out what's meaningful, what's dubious — and what's total fluff.

One of my dearest and oldest friend Kat just put up June 2008 'Rock Tarot' readings, a fun and insightful site I think you would enjoy. To visit her page click on: RockReadings.
(I read them all, and was so surprised to read Pisces.!! She made me smile.)

Ok, are we ready to 'ease' into Summer fun.! Well, with the price of gas, the cost of food and everything else happening in the world.. we should still find that quiet time to decompress and
enjoy the many blessing in our lives. For me, its enjoying my garden.

Remember .. to protect your skin, and stay hydrated.! And don't forget our furry friends, they need plenty of water as well.

Hope you enjoyed this stroll thru my Garden ..

Donna Maria over at the Indie Beauty Network recently interviewed me about SunRose and my new book Chakra Balancing / A Beginner's Guide. To read the interview please visit: Indie Business Blog: Are You Cheating Yourself and Your Customers?

I would like to mention that I have to give the credit of this book design and layout to Toni Esser. It was a joy working with her, and she made my first book effortless and fun.!

As I am self published, without her help, this would have been a very trying experience. Anyone in business that wants to do a project like this, writing a book which would accompany a product you are offering .. this is the 'go to' person.

You can contact Toni :

For the Cat lovers of the world, I want to share with you a wonderful woman and her site.
If you have a moment, please watch the video, it is a 'feel good' few moments. Please visit:
The Cat House on the Kings

Well, it was just a glorious day here in the Bronx, makes me want to 'play hooky' and just be out in Nature. With so many natural disasters happening around the globe, I am so blessed and grateful . Hope wherever you are on the planet, may it be a fragrant and wonderful Spring.!

Mother's Day is fast approaching. What better way to honor your Mom than to gift her with exotic and natural scents, after body oils, aroma jewelry, and much more.

To all the wonderful women in my life and that I have met throughout the years .. this is your day .. know how much you are treasured and honored.

Some quotes for Mother's Day:

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
- Honore de Balzac sayings

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
- Inspirational sayings by Washington Irving

My Mom .. was my truest friend, and I miss her .. everyday. My Chakra book is dedicated to her, as she was my biggest supporter and believed in me .. even when I didn't believe in myself.

Please remember... whether you are a Mom or not .. to honor the Goddess within on this special day.!
