Being Joyful even when the world is In Chaos

Being Joyful even when the world is in Chaos. Even that statement seems almost sacrilegious to say doesn't it? How can we by joyful when so many of our brothers and sisters in the Ukraine are suffering? Answer: It isn't easy. It isn't easy for any of us who are kind and caring souls. I had a rough couple of days last week, I found myself in a sea of sorrow, anger, grief, fear, confusion and a whole host of other emotions. I am certain I wasn't alone and I am sure there are many of us who are still [...]

Polish Nail Bar

I normally write posts with health and home information and inspirational thoughts. However , this post is about Polish Nail Bar in a little town called Clarence, NY. It's not far from me, maybe 20 -25 minutes. It's sort-of suburban/rural-ish. And is quite beautiful with miles of green pine trees and landscapes. There are also little vignettes of boutiques, salons and restaurants that are dotted around the area for folks to explore. Well, on one of my jaunts around town - I found this little gem! The Polish Nail Bar! You can find them on their website here: https://www.polishedwny.com/ It [...]

Be Curious

This was something I heard while listening to one of my favorite spiritual teachers, Gabby Bernstein. When you get a negative or fearful thought, "Be Curious."  Ask that thought what they want to teach you, what are you nagging me about? What do I do with you? - hahaha, that was my add-lib!. We often get stuck in our negative thinking loops and fear thoughts, oh my god, especially these last two years! How do we get rid of them and shut the door forever, one of Gabby's students asked. And she replied - "Be Curious." I thought that was [...]

Those Darn Dry Eyes

Oh my goodness, I used to see the advertisements on TV and thought oh my goodness that seems painful! And then...it happened to me...ugh.. and it is painful and they burn when you cry!  I work on a computer and a phone all day long and that doesn't help!  Can you relate? those Darn Dry Eyes!

Remedies for Cold and Flu Season

As most of my friends and family know , I am a HUGE fan of homeopathy.  Whenever there is a health issue with myself, my animals, family or friends, that is where I turn. I am not a certified homeopath but I have had a LOT of experience with it with my animals (over 14 years) and their world-renowned homeopathic vets as well as trained human homeopaths over the last several years. It's that time of year, so I thought I would let you know what my favorite homeopathic remedies for cold and flu season are. Just a short note [...]

My secret coffee recipe

.So many of my Airbnb guests and friends ask me "what is my secret coffee recipe?" In those early morning hours, they awake, walk into the kitchen and take a deep inhale to smell the aroma of that freshly brewed cup of coffee. I had them a special mug for whatever season we are in (Christmas, Easter, Fall) and pour. Their hands wrap themselves around the mug and feel the warmth. They raise the mug to smell and t They really enjoy the rich flavor that has a bit of a sweet, yet grounded, spicy kick. This is derived from [...]

Breakfast Brioche French Toast

I have always wanted to make Breakfast Brioche French Toast and never seemed to get around to it. This year, I was determined! Tuesday would be the last full day of my sister's visit this Holiday Season, so I wanted us to savor each moment. I searched online for recipes, found one I liked and headed to the store Monday evening. While searching the aisles, I couldn't locate the exact type of brioche bread I needed, but instead, found something called Challah bread at the bakery.  The woman working behind the bakery counter recommended this to me. It is   made [...]
