"Pour bien vivre, bien aimer et laisser dire."
"To live well, love well and let them talk."
I would love to share this on a wine label. I found this photo and this quote this morning so off to photoshop I went. We are in the 4th stage of our wine making experiment, just two more weeks before bottling and I am already in love with the process.
As I have been getting the front ready for our lavender beds I can't help but daydream about the scent and color and feeling so I went online and found some inspiration.
Just allowing these good feeling thoughts which are attracting objects of desire. Try it with something you love. You will have fun!

This week is Juice Week (yea)
I have been juicing for a number of years and it's something my mom started when we were young which I carried over. Well This week I felt the need to step it up a bit and see how far I get by Friday. Oh, I should mention that last week I started substituting a meal a day for my juicing but everything else in regards to what I ate stayed the same. i.e, we still enjoyed homemade pizza on Sunday :)

I am feeling the spring coming and can't wait to build this years NEW garden at this beautiful home we moved into 6mo. ago. So, this year I've decided to get an early start indoors using the same lighting system and racks we used last year Last weekend I grabbed some photos to show you how things are coming along. (Click on any image to enlarge.)
Last years rosemary survived the move, fall, and winter
new leaves on the lemon tree
....and look at the new varieties I've found growing around the property.
Another added bonus :)

This is one of my favorite dishes that I have been making for years because it's so easy it's also healthy and anyone can make it with whatever pasta you have (elbow, bow tie, mac, penne) and fresh produce in the house.
After not being able to eat for almost a week because of a little accident I had with my mouth (don't ask) I've been living on protein shakes, and soups thank AMY'S. Today I feel about 75% healed and NEED real food.
Todays pasta ingredients:
Elbows pasta cooked & seasoned
2 Tbsp olive oil
baby bella mushrooms
Enjoy hot or cold, and if you like you could throw meat and cheese into it for a dinner.
