Food And Family Felines

“The other side of my Morning Star vegetarian burger”

I always prepare breakfast for myself and Joe. Today is Sunday and since I woke up early, too early in my opinion, I returned for a few more hours of blissful slumber. By the time the phone rang it was 11:15!

I decided to prepare vegetarian Morning Star burgers for our first meal, using generous slices of beefsteak tomato, honey-infused Thomas English Muffins, romaine lettuce, sautéed in butter mushrooms, topped with an Italian shredded-cheese blend. As soon as we sat down to eat we dove right in. Oops, I should have snapped the shots first.

Yesterday I received an updated photograph of my kitty nephew, Sunny.

See how he has grown from last summer to this.

We lost two more of our felines during the months of May and June. The emergency hospital staff sent us keepsakes of our girls, Ribbon and Tiffany.

At first I didn’t want them, but then agreed. Now I am glad to have the molds as these lovely kitties were with us for many years.

Ribbon Hall 1997 – 2013 and Tiffany Hall 1995 – 2013. We also lost Monseiur Hall 1997 – 2013, (Ribbon’s brother) in February. And, last summer my dear Bobby 1997-2013, (Ribbon & Monseiur’s half-brother and cousin).

They shared the same father, Bentley. Fiona was Bobby & Peter’s mother, and Chyna was mother to: Ribbon, Christy, Sasha and Monseiur. I know I’m rambling but I don’t give a fig.

Unlocking My Self-Imposed Debates

"Breakfast today"

“Breakfast today”

My self-imposed debates are internal confrontations consisting of two-sided arguments, declarative exasperation and discussions I hold inwardly every day. It’s usually easy to gauge how my day is going to flow after an exhaustive night of thinking things through. I become entangled in scenarios where I either enjoy the dream or I have obstacles to overcome. I experience the emotional joy or turmoil within them. Round and round, over and over, these thoughts and words continue to loop until I either want to sink down into my pillow, or I long to escape. So many times I have come to a decision or concluded a worrisome and tiring climb up a mountain of problems.

The astrological sign of Libra is symbolized by the scales of justice. I am especially affected by the pull of the moon on the Earth’s tide, when it is moving through this sun sign. I find I am influenced sometimes by indecision, or by mentally trying to balance the scales. At the time of my birth the moon was juxtaposed to Venus, the planet representing this sign. The effect of this is that I suffer an inward dilemma of decision-making … my first tendency is to see both sides of a situation which prompts me to weigh things out and think, should I or shouldn’t I?

When the moon is going through the sign of Pisces, I spend the entire day followed around and feeling haunted by my dreams. They encroach into my daily routines, lingering on the outer edges of my thoughts. I float in-between reality and those fantasy realms of space that transport me into the outer astral planes. It’s the place where my physical body is capable of floating and flying, flitting from place to place and going through challenges that seem to engulf me during the night. It’s no wonder I awaken to feel as if I have not slept at all. Tiredness hampers my body because all night long, I have fought or climbed, or figured out how to save my myself or a loved one from the waves crashing against the rocks, where we are walking and trying to get to the top.

When I stop to ponder my capabilities of thought and of manifestation, I keep gaining glimpses of the way we are connected and woven into the fabric of the universe. Part of becoming human and experiencing life here on this planet is made up of times like these. I marvel at all the things I can do simultaneously, and realize that I am a living being with a thirst for learning, possessing a spirit and soul so I can feel the freedom of discovery. When I take these enlightening individual moments out to inspect them, I love the way I am left with a better understanding of why I decided to come to Earth in the first place.

Breakfast Balanced

BreakfastThis delicious and healthy breakfast is simple and it does not take very many minutes to prepare a meal that is as tasty to look at as it is to eat. Ten minutes of well-timed balance and a little added-in “Kitchen Ballet” can produce a meal with perfect flair to set before you and your family or guests. Have a bright and lovely day!

Breakfast For One

Here’s the evidence that I am still removing the yolks from my morning eggs. I love the nutty flavor of the butter and the crisp edges of the whites. I take a small spoon and scoop out the cooked yolk, offering it to my kitties. Sometimes they eat it and many times they will not touch it. They’d probably prefer raw eggs anyway.

I’m working on two interviews and another project so I am quite happy writing and tweaking and editing. Hope you all are well and happy.

Breakfast & Dinner

It is simple to make fresh foods taste delicious. Adding a little enhancement and balancing of flavors is all it takes. We are still packing boxes.

Start Your Day With Breakfast


This meal only takes about ten minutes to make and it can help you think better. Your body functions better. Just like fueling your automobile, food is the necessary fuel for our bodies. Glad it tastes good.

Late Breakfast Today

Even though I was woke up early today, I was not hungry until around 1PM.
