Time Is Flyin’

Granddaughter Soph is getting big fast! She sat up by herself tonight! She’s already having battles with Aunt JJ over Apple Devices.

She loves sitting upright so I dug out Jenna’s old booster…

We love this grandgirl of ours!

She wore her Auntie out and Jenna fell asleep watching Barefoot Contessa.


Through My Grown Up Eyes

Even though I’m all in to natural remedies to see surgeons or actors playing out a realistic procedure on TV makes my jaw drop in respect and awe and to think these things happen, really happen every day. Good, dedicated physicians and surgeons are angels walking the Earth.

When I was a child watching St. Elsewhere it was truly captivating but through a child’s eyes. Last night I watched a Season 2 episode entitled Newheart on YouTube. It’s only available there, season 1 is the only one widely available. Newheart is broken in to eight parts with a the title, Heart Transplant. My Mom and I were deeply touched by this episode in the early 80’s, it definitely had an impact on how safety conscious I am for my children and I. I will always remember Jack’s young wife dying from a fall in her workplace restroom.

Watching the transplant scene literally is heart wrenching. As a grown adult it made realize these special people save lives every day, in real life. Both the surgeons and the donors are these special people, angels.

St. Elsewhere stayed around 49th place in viewer popularity during its entire six year run, thank God the critics loved it. It’s left an indelible place in my heart. The theme is also one of my favorite music pieces of my generation.

*According  to Wikipedia, there are 2,000-2,300 heart transplants done in the U.S. annually. During the episode, Newheart/Heart Transplant which aired 1/9/83, the supposed cost of the operation was $110,000.     

Just Balance It All

Gung Ho is never the answer for me. I love food, both healthy and not so much, I love exercise but in small doses. Supplements and essential oils are fun and exciting to learn about, I’m crazy about them. When I ran out of Amazing Grass Superfood a couple of months ago the inner cheapskate in me didn’t reorder but now I have some and WOW, what a difference…energy!

In my green juice I put three varieties of Yogi Teas and Tang drink mix, yes…balance. Minus being a processed food there is a lot of vitamin c in it. 

*Tang will never taste as good as it did in my grandma’s jelly jar glasses in the 70’s at her breakfast table. 

For an early Mother’s Day Gift I requested a 1 day cleanse from Nekter. It will be here Friday…beyond excited!!! After weighing all of the diy options I concluded that buying rather than purchasing equipment and ingredients was the most cost effective choice. Seems all of my healthy rituals lately are via someone I follow on social media…God Bless her! ie: Plant Therapy, Nekter

Always make choices that are comfortable for you. What I love about natural remedies and dietary health choices are the times I can treat aches, pains and illnesses myself. Doctors are fine and dandy when things are more serious but I’m proud to say Jenna, my four year old has never taken antibiotics and Paige, my 8th Grader is going on her fifth year antibiotic free. The only time she has missed school this semester is to go the orthodontist. She missed one sick day on her birthday, that was before I dove headfirst in to diy naturopathy.

Cheers to good health!



There are things in life that give one the feeling of butterflies in your tummy excitement. Architecture, especially large public and commercial buildings unique in design, really make me happy.

This is a great article from HGTV about an architect that is new to me. Her style is slightly I.M. Pei, which I love, he’s my favorite!

Rest in peace Ms. Hadid, your works are magnificent.
