A wonderful and healthy way to approach 2009 is to consume the valuable meat we have harvested.  As hunters and huntresses we are all aware of the incredible health benefits of including venison in our diet.  I just wanted to share a bit of research which just confirms the wonderful aspects of this delicious wild game:  I have used information from The NutriBase Guide to Protein, Carbohydrates & Fat:    Here are a few examples of a variety of game meat:

Learning to play the Mandolin at 45

Monday, December 17, 2012 1:27:24 PM America/Los_Angeles

At the tender age of 45 I am learning to play the Mandolin.  My husband purchased this beautiful instrument for me last Christmas.  I shared with him the wonderful memories of my childhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee where we would go to Signal Mountain on Saturday evenings and listen to people pick, grin, dance and just absorb the harmony of good ole' country music!

As I got older and moved to Florida, it seemed I was always looking for a little piece of home.  When I would hear the sweet magic of the mandolin, I could close my eyes and be back home!

Taking music lessons in adult life seems to be more challenging but I have made a commitment to myself not to miss a lesson.  I have also told my instructor on some lesson days that I would be paying for a practice because I did not find time in between our sessions to do my homework!  Luckily, he totally understands and has been very supportive!  It is to easy to quit so I am determined!

Butterfly Dancing

Monday, December 17, 2012 1:23:23 PM America/Los_Angeles

I just started my first ever butterfly garden this spring and WOW!  I have enjoyed watching this incredible stage show for the last several months!  I planted numerous Milkweed host plants as well as fennel.  The fennel has been an incredible food source for all sorts of insects, not to mention, we have harvested our very own fennel seed for cooking.

Yesterday, as I was cleaning up some dead areas on a fennel plant and carrying them to the trash can, I was literally tapped on the shoulder by a butterfly and then she landed on the fennel in my hand.  I felt she was saying "No, please do not take away!"  As I looked more closely, I found tiny bright yellow pin head dots all over the plant!  After researching on the internet, I learned these were butterfly eggs.  What a clever little gal to flutter by and save her babies.  I have placed the fennel trimmings back in their home.  I am so excited to watch the transformations!  

I believe the when our hearts are open and the clutter in our minds is quite, we can hear many wonderful things from nature!  Try it!
