Upcycled Treasures In The Colors Of Froot Loops

Growing up we were provided a healthy and almost completely organic diet.  Which means of course that all I wanted was Mac and Cheese and Froot Loops.  Once in a great while, during the summer, I was able to pick out a cereal that I wanted and that wasn't filled with nuts and straw.   I almost always picked Froot Loops; their bright cheerful color and fruity smell always promised me all kinds of fun.   But I have to admit they do look and smell better than they actually taste. 

I still think it is a fun cereal although not exactly something I would let my kids (or future Grandkids) load up on either but how could anyone resist their eye-popping rainbow of colors?

The Living Desert in Palm Desert, California

My Hubby took me to the Living Desert just down the road from our house in Palm Desert.  Most people who know me know how much I love going to the beach but I have a new favorite!  What a beautiful place and wonderful way to spend the day.  It is like crossing a botanical garden (desert version of course) with a zoo and then adding a few other features in besides. 

We spent most of the day there yesterday and was only able to see part of it.  I am more excited about getting a membership; I am going to love being able to explore the shady paths and bright desert scenes on a regular basis.  I hope my pictures do it justice (please note these images are copyrighted.)

Memorial Day Weekend!

Many of us (including me at time) forget that Memorial Day was not created so that we could have a 3 day weekend.  It was not created so American's could have a good reason to get together with their families. Rather, it was created to recognize and pay respect to American's who gave their lives for our freedom.  To show respect and gratitude to those families that sacraficed so much to protect the rights we enjoy.  I want to say a special thanks to those families who have lost their loved ones fighting for our country and to those that are still fighting for our rights.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

God Bless America!


˜*°.** HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! **.°*˜
