Milton State Park & Garden

We recently traveled to Milton State Park and hiked the 3 1/2 miles of trails. We packed food and also stopped at Brews and Bytes in Danville. It was a neat artsy place and I ordered a Buddha bowl. It was so yummy that I have been making my own Buddha bowls at home lately….

Early June Wildflower Walk

This is a trail we do our regular walking on for exercise.  We normally go before or after dinner.  It seems like not long ago we were here walking in the snow, surprised to see another person out there with the same idea.  Today was especially wonderful because the weather was just right, birds singing,…

Hiking Road Trip from August 2016

A couple of years ago we went on a road trip to Seven Tubs Natural Area, Archbald Pothole State Park,  Salt Springs State Park, and New York.  Seven Tubs and Archbald feature pot holes formed over 12,000 years ago by flowing glacial meltwater. Seven Tubs Natural Area:   Archbald Pothole State Park:   Salt Springs refers…

Worlds End State Park

This week, I’m sorting through pictures and catching up on State Park posts.  We visited Worlds End SP last summer and also stayed in a cabin last winter.  Only, I can’t find the pictures from when we stayed in the cabin lol.  I remember it was really cold out and I had gotten some pictures…

Garden, Vegfest, and Strawberries

  Garden update: One of my first blog entries was about wood sorrel.  I love the dark and light contrasting colors of the purple shamrock variety.  I found it again at the stand so I picked up two the other day.   I also picked up a red bell pepper plant today to replace the one…

Memorial Day 2018

On Memorial Day, I think about my grandfather.  He had 8 siblings, grew up on a farm and walked to school without shoes.  He fought in WW2 and had a near death experience.  If he hadn’t survived, I wouldn’t exist today.  He was always my hero, and not only because of what happened to him. …

Tuscarora State Park

This was the second State Park we have ever been to, and that was in the year 2001.  We have been here hundreds of times since then because this is the park we go hiking at the most.  The trails are just so beautiful and it’s relatively close to home.  Sometimes we enjoy canoeing, swimming,…

BBQ Tempeh Wrap

This wrap was sooo good I simply had to share. This isn’t a recipe post, but more like a look at this awesomeness I ate post lol. I used Vegenaise and mixed in onion and garlic powder, parsley, paprika, and s+p. I thinly sliced carrots and red bell pepper, some cooked tempeh in BBQ sauce,…

Our Second Visit to Shenk’s Ferry

Remember to live in and enjoy the present moment… “Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.” -A.A. Milne, Winnie The Pooh  

Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

I have been enjoying strawberry nice cream lately and just wanted to share this wonderful picture!  I used bananas, strawberries, cashew milk, vegan chocolate, and hempseeds.  I’m so excited to go pick fresh homegrown strawberries soon.  As much as I can carry!  Ha ha!  I’m going to freeze them, but I know they won’t last…
