More food – Lentil Tacos. Okay, they sound intriguing.

I had first tried the chickpea tacos from “Thug Kitchen” at my besties house (also creator of the beautiful blog ibbyandpop.com). She blogged the recipe here and they were delicious. A couple weeks later we also tried making them and they were awesome and really so super easy.

While Chris was down the street at the park painting I decided to make something for the blog…And I was craving those tacos.

I didn’t have the ingredients to make them so I used sweet potato (which I roasted with the soy sauce and spices) and lentils which I mixed in afterwards. They turned out great!

Versatile Blogger Award


One of the better posts on nominating other versatile blogger awardees… (and to Pushing Our Limits – you might check out Jane Cooper Easton’s book IN THE SEVENTH DAY; talk about erotic (evil!) fiction…!)

I’m not sure I’m versatile. I write D/s erotica. A very specific genre of smut.

But, I supposed, because I also whine and transcribe about my life, experiences, struggles and marital content/discontent, I suppose I do cover a range of subjects.

I’m daunted by this award because it comes with this assignment.
“Nominate 15 Bloggers for the same award”.

As you are all aware, I am addicted to words. I spend hours each week reading the posts of nearly 100 bloggers whom I love, time that should be devoted to working, cleaning, improving my marriage, or writing my own blog. How do I only nominate 15?? The list of blogs that I follow grows every day!

The easier part of this assignment is to thank the friends who nominated me.

I was first named this by Must Be This Tall to Ride, who, in fact, doesn’t…

Kerala, India: The Land of Spices


Travel plans shaky? Take a look at Kerala, India on iBellHop.

Kerala India Travel Photo Gallery

Kerala, India is a magical place that has been bringing flavor and color to the rest of the world for centuries. A state of the country of India since 1956, Kerala sits on the Western Coastline of India, near the tip of the Indian Peninsula, and facing the Arabian Sea. Often called the “Land of Spices,” Kerala was one of the major spice shipping hubs for the globe as early as 3000 B.C. and is still a major grower and exporter of spices and foods to this day. In addition to the flavorful and exotic spices that flow from Kerala, tea-growing is also a major industry, with some of the most unique tea flavors in the world being grown on the inland steppes. Though the agricultural tourism is a major draw, the majority of visitors are more-enthralled with the backwaters, Beaches, and stunningly-green tropical forests.

While there are vast expanses…

Fresh Air Kids


“our children are the first in history to have a lower life expectancy than their parents.”

 Finally, I went to watch the documentary ‘Project Wild Thing’. Since I saw the trailer, I knew that I wanted, (and needed), to see this film. I wasn’t disappointed.

projectwildthing

This documentary is the positive promotion of children being in the outdoors. But it isn’t done in an ‘in your face’ kind of way. The information is very balanced, and the first part of the film is David Bond observing how even his own children choose TV and computers rather than the outdoors.

However, as much as this film gives us some contradictory, light-hearted moments that you would expect when children are in a film, it does illustrate some hard and quite scary facts. Our children are the first in history to have a lower life expectancy than their parents…… how incredibly sad is that??? This statement made me sigh with sadness and despair.

Within my job, I get to see…
