Favourite Vegetarian Dishes

Favourite Vegetarian Dishes

Recently Instagram did this really fun thing where it allowed text boxes on their stories that prompted people to “Ask Me A Question”— I caved and did it. I really do like answering questions and I want people to ask questions… just beware you’ll get blatant, honest answers. (I wonder how outdated this feature will seem in three months!) One of my followers, who also happens to be a life long friend, asked me about my favourite vegetarian recipes/dishes… oh…

  This past year, as a project, I crocheted a Temperature Blanket. What is this you may ask? Well, this is a project where you crochet one row on a blanket for every day of the year based on the current high temperature of that day. I live is Seattle region so rightfully my blanket is mainly green and blue! Hahahaha. Tools: – Crochet hook to match yarn – Yarn of rainbow colors – Notebook to keep track of temperatures…

Happy New YEAR!!! 2018

Happy New YEAR!!! 2018

It is that time of year again, the time we all make resolutions just so we can break them by February 1st and then feel like a failure for the rest of the year. I had three ideas of a New Year’s post. What were popular New Years Resolutions in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, e.t.c. My resolutions and why. The “science” of creating real goals for our life. Frankly, I like all three topics, but the first one was difficult…

On the Mend

On the Mend

This is a post I started back in August, saved, and forgot to post. I was also, at times, on some killer narcotics and valium to help with the pain and discomfort. Hahaha. “Alright, so I have not blogged in a while. So, update. I had a discectomy just close to two weeks ago. The healing process was difficult. I am still restricted on what I should and should not do. I am sticking very close with these restrictions and…

Why Nursing?

Why Nursing?

One of my friends/coworkers asked me the other day – “Why did you go into nursing?” “Why Nursing?” Oh gosh, what a question. After these last few months, I have seriously asked myself “WHY?” so many times and have honestly forgotten why I went into this career. So let me try to tell you why I chose nursing. What has helped me keep going during this slump in the career? To be frank, paychecks and student loans. I got bills…

Margarita Chicken

Margarita Chicken

This whole week began with me asking my hubby what he wanted for dinners this week. He simply replied with “Mexican”. Therefore, I spent the next couple hours searching for more traditional dishes than the ones I usually make. I grew up for a good portion of my life in New Mexico and worked in a Mexican restaurant as my first legitimate job (I was a newspaper girl before that). Working around the spices and living amongst the Tex-Mex food…

Black Tea Hair Wash

Black Tea Hair Wash

Once a week, I do a black tea hair wash/soak. I first started this because I noticed I was shedding so much hair!! After researching, I found a natural solution could be doing a tea soak. The black tea also blocks hair loss (I was shedding puppies daily) because it has caffeine and can block DHT which causes the hair loss. So it reduces the shedding! For me this has proven to be true. Concerning cosmetic benefits, it helps bring a…
