How To Make Life Changing Mango Lime/Lemonade!

Always Something Beautiful Blooming

Always Something Beautiful Blooming

In my garden, there is always something new blooming and there’s always a new fruit in season to bring home from the Farmer’s Market or the Supermarket, or your neighbor’s tree.  Right now mangoes abound.  You can find them in any market. Do you need to wake up and smell the coffee?  Or slow down and smell the roses??  This lemonade will handle it all. I swear, you’ll never be the same after you taste this mango lime-lemonade!   It is my personal prediction that you may never again buy lemonade, and you’ll probably never order it in a restaurant again. But I don’t know.  Let’s test my theory. How easy can it be?  Pretty easy.  A little messy, but easy.  So roll up your shirt sleeves and go for it. MANGO LIME-LEMONADE 2 limes, squeezed (seeds removed) 2 lemons, squeezed (seeds removed) (OR you can use 4 lemons or 4 limes if that’s what you have…) 1 ripe mango  (for great instructions on how to cut a mango, go to Squish the mango pit and get all the goodies from that as well. Nobody tells you that. :–) ). Probably ’cause it’s messy… 4 c. water A little aguave, honey or sugar.  Not much!!! Sweeten to taste.  I used just a little more than 1/4 c. of aguave and it was just right, on the tart side, which is how we like it. Ice! Ok, squeeze the lemons and limes into a cuisinart, blender, or vita mix.  Add fresh mango. Puree and mix.  Pour into a pitcher. Add water and 1/4 c. aguave.   Then mix and see where you stand on the sweet scale.   Add a little more sweetener of your choice if necessary.   The sweetener required is less than you think, because the mango is naturally sweet, which is the whole idea!  Drink natural sugar when possible, and drink fresh, un-messed-with juices. Drink up! I served it to family and guests and it got thumbs up all around!

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
Much love,
