Happy Monday

We're all just walking each other home. ~ Ram Dass

(¯`´¯) ..•*¨`*•♫.•´*.¸.•´´*(¯`´¯)
*.¸.*. * ~ *¨`*•♫.•´.~  * *.¸.*.
There is beauty all around,
When there’s love at home;
There is joy in every sound,
When there’s love at home;
Peace and plenty here abide,
Smiling sweet on every side,
Time doth softly, sweetly glide,
When there’s love at home.
'Love at Home' lyrics by John H. McNaughton

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity. - Gilda Radner

"Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again."
Sarah Ban Breathnach


We Need to Look Daily through the " Eyes of a Child " 
Never Lose our Sense of Freedom & Adventure╭•⊰✿ღღ

"If you expect to find nothing within yourself but the repressed, abandoned, and shameful elements of your past or a haunted hunger, all you will find is emptiness and desperation. If you do not bring the kind eye of creative expectation to your inner world, you will never find anything in there. The way you look at things is the most powerful force in shaping your life. In a vital sense, perception is reality."

  • 1 lb. russet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, cut into small chunks
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled & cut into third
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp crushed dried rosemary
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, onion, garlic and olive oil. Toss to coat the vegetables.
  3. Add in the rosemary, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and toss to coat again.
  4. Using 2 pieces of foil (each 24 inches long), form an X by overlapping the foil.
  5. Place the potato mixture in the middle of the X, arranging so that it is an even height. Wrap the pieces of foil over the potato mixture, pinching the foil to seal.
  6. Use a third piece of foil to wrap around the package.
  7. Place the foil package on the grill and cook for 20 minutes. Flip the package over and cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and starting to brown. Be careful when opening the package to test the vegetables, as hot steam will be released.
  8. The vegetables will stay warm in the package for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve.
