Hiking in Nature

I find when I go out into nature, whether it be a local park, the beach, or the mountains, I feel refreshed and part Mother Earth. Even going into the backyard, I enjoy the birds, trees, sky, and insects.

Backpacking is also fun and allows you to enjoy the Earth both in the day and at night.

I Love Spanish Food

Spanish food is very unique and each city has its own way of preparing dishes. A very famous and delicious meal is Paella.

Paella originated in Valencia in 330 C.E., and its principal ingredient is rice seasoned to perfection, seafood such as shrimp, chicken, and chorizo. If you have not tried this dish you really should.

Tortilla de Patatas is also very common in Spain. It is made of onion, potato, and egg. It looks like an omelette but it is not. It has a unique flavor and can be served as an appetizer.

There is nothing more delicious than eggs with potato and chorizo for breakfast!

There are also many soups and cuts of beef that are mouth- watering! Enjoy!

Birds are Beautiful!

I have been bird watching for more than 35 years such as their habits and colors and ability to survive. Every spring I look forward to the return of certain birds, I like to put seeds out for the resident birds, and I enjoy the nests they make. I am impressed by their ability to survive despite all types of pollution, poverty, and less food. Some species do not make it, but nature always wins and the strongest do survive.

The mountains of California have beautiful Quail.

I love birds and their abilities and wish them the best all over the world.

Betty White: Happy 98th Birthday !

Betty White is a wonderful actress who has been in some of the best shows on American television. Today she celebrates 98 years of life and when asked her secret:

“I know it sounds corny, but I try to see the funny side and the upside, not the downside. I get bored with people who complain about this or that. It’s such a waste of time,” she told Parade Magazine in 2018.

Betty White was so funny in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, she had a cooking segment but her main goal was to get Lou Grant, it was really funny.

I have to say, I loved Betty White in The Golden Girls. This has to be one of my favorite shows. The humor and stories were so well written and acted.

Betty White was also in Hot in Cleveland which was funny as well.

Happy Birthday, Betty White!

Happy Birthday Betty White! 98 years young.

Breakfast: My Favorite Meal

Breakfast is an important meal because you are “breaking the fast” of the night. I enjoy cooking and adore fresh eggs from the hens, fresh fruit from the trees, so I have a variety of meals to make.

I like to add as many veggies to my eggs as possible.

Sometimes I opt for fruit and cottage cheese with honey.

Fresh tomato and broccoli combine nicely with eggs.

When strawberries are in season granola and yogurt make a filling breakfast!

No matter what, remember what you were told as a child: breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It gives you energy to enjoy fully each day!
