Be Anxious For Nothing

I love tissue paper art.  I love working with a medium that doesn't smell or end up in hard-to-remove globs on clothing or furniture.  I love the colours.  I love the fact that it is a pretty inexpensive way to express myself.  I love layering the tissue and seeing what emerges.

So, one dreary day I got out the layers of coloured paper and decided that I would do an ocean piece.  I had purchased a couple of canvases at the local Dollarama ($4 each I think), and I had a good supply of white glue from other projects for myself and my granddaughters.



I layered and cut out different configurations and layered them.  I changed the trees and mountains into just the dark band of sea along the horizon.  I did this over a series of weeks when the urge hit.  This morning I collaged a sort of seashore with some money plant husks, quinoa flakes, and a few kinds of salt: ground kelp, celtic sea salt, and some pink Himilayan salt.

Finally, after that had seemingly all come together, I ran off Philippians 4: 6-7 on the printer and cut out the words.  I arranged the words.  I glued the words.

YES-- I made a huge mistake-- that I discovered after the glue had dried and I had takent the above photo-- can you see it?  (Hint: If you are reading the above meme, then on the second line, kindly swap around the two phrases so that it reads: "...in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving..."  I felt a great deal of shame as the child of perfectionism, and a sort of anxiety reaction.  But, you know what, I have actually learned the verse and see its relevance to the mistake I've made.  And I do like the seascape, the way it turned out with spirally waves and lots of colour.

Good Summer Morning Chia Pudding

Here is a fast and easy Chia Pudding that is perfect for breakfast (or as dessert, etc etc etc).  Chia pudd fans will know what I mean...  .                               . The Recipe is pretty simple.  You can vary it as you like, but this combination is a winner at our home and I think we will continue to use this as a standard for a simple breakfast pudding. I start by gathering together the ingredients and a wide-mouth Mason Jar with a lid. The ingredients are: 1/4 C. Chia Seed 1/4 C . Liquid Honey (or other sweetener of choice) 1/2 tspn. Vanilla Extract 2 C. Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk) Strawberries and Blueberries (or other fruit/berry combinations ) as you like            THE METHOD Put all the above ingredients (in order) into a quart-size Mason Jar Whisk ingredients together until thoroughly mixed, paying attention to bottom sticky seeds Put lid on jar and place in fridge overnight (or at least 4 hours.) Scoop pudding into small bowls or small j

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
