Sometimes we fail to see the beauty before us.
In our own backyard.
Inspired by Mt Hooiberg, finally made it to Communications Hill.

Lunch all week. Tried vegan tortellini for the first time this week and was pleasantly surprised. Hope they make it from organic ingredients soon.
While I don’t like to label myself in any particular category, (traumatized from freshman year vegan floormates, my rit crew knows what I mean) I do love vegan food❤️ Cucumbers from my garden. Can’t wait until the tomatoes and peppers are ready!

When you're learning to face the path at your pace
Every choice is worth your while.
Well there's always retrospect to light a clearer path
Every five years or so I look back on my life
And I have a good laugh.
You start at the top, go full circle round
Catch a breeze, take a spill
But ending up where i started again makes me wanna stand still.
Stepping on a crack, breaking up and looking back.
Every tree limb overhead just seems to sit and wait.
Until every step you take becomes a twist of fate. ~Indigo Girls 🌵 🌵

Today would have been my grandfather’s 89 birthday. He was a funny character who knew how to have a good time. He always planted zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers. When he got older he planted plastic tulip plants in the front😂 Now I grow I the same, except for the plastic ones.😉 To Franky🥂
Today I enjoyed the morning at the beach with my son and nephew. While they were acting as scientists, I cleaned up all of the plastic water bottle tops, chip bags, bubble wands, balloon pieces, and any other plastics that I could find. I showed the kids the garbage that wasn’t ours that I had cleaned. While walking to the car, my nephew saw some trash, quickly picked it up and showed me. He had so much plastic in his hands. I was so proud of him. I didn’t ask them to help me, and I had already thrown away the bag of garbage I collected earlier. Our kids are watching us.
I wonder what would happen if everyone who went to the beach cleaned up five pieces of plastic before they left🤔
My grandmother always took such pride in her cooking and sharing her food. You could tell how much joy feeding her family brought her and how much we enjoyed it. 💚❤️💚❤️💚 🍽 I ❤️ cooking for my family.

You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

When your friends know you always have a freezer stocked with homemade pesto and a fresh bunch of basil in the fridge. Pesto ready to go at any time and always room for one more at the table. -
p.s. I started a new trick to save time and water. Since asparagus is in season, I throw it in the pot with the pasta right before it’s done. Then chop it and add it in the bowl with pesto pasta. -
