Berry Blitz Smoothie

Yes, so happy my airbnb guest is gone. My daughter called airbnb, and they called me to get a full report on this guy. They won’t let him book with airbnb again! I sure was done being hit on every day. It wasn’t fun and it wasn’t flattering. It just made me go, “Yuck!” And how inappropriate. I wish I’d been at peace inside when he said stuff like, “You sure look hot when you wake up,” after sneaking up on me up in the cacoons. Or sliding a hand around my waist in town after sneaking quietly up from behind, and saying, “See you at home,” like he was my lover or something. Yikes!!! Ooooh! Gross!


Recipe of the Day – Berry Blitz

1/2 c. blueberries (arandanos)

1/2 c. raspberries (frambuesas)

1/2 c. strawberries (fresas)

1/2 c. green grapes

1 c. water

Directions. Blend and chill, if desired, or pour over ice cubes on a hot day.


Word of the Day – arandanos – blueberries

frambuesas – raspberries, fresas – strawberries, uvas – grapes


Tip of the Day – I’ve learned from all the sweet, enlightened guys in town. Next time, say immediately how inappropriate that is, to a single woman living alone in the country, trying to earn a living. At least, for me it’s inappropriate, insensitive and unprofessional. (Unless he’s super cute, or something, ha ha.)

HomeMade Fruit Roll-Ups

I miss my son so much today. He’s 19. And I wonder if he’s okay. But my friends say that I have a serious case of “Empty Nest Syndrome.” I don’t know if that’s true. I’m not lonely or wondering what to do with myself. I love my life. I just seriously love my son, and miss being with him! Here’s one of the recipes he likes. When he was 14 he said these fruit roll-ups were better than store-bought!

Recipe of the Day : Fruit Roll-UpThe 2 good recipes I made lately are:

5 apples
2 red pears
8 large strawberries
2 apples,
2 red pears
2 c. raspberries
1 banana

2 bananas
handful strawberries
handful raspberries
handful peaches


Puree all the fruit together or fruits of choice in the food processor. Spread on lined dehydrator sheets 1/8-1/4 inch thick. Score into long rectangles. Dehydrate at 95 degrees for 12 hours, then flip, if they’re relatively dry, not mushy. Flip the parchment paper over and dehydrate again, probably another 8 hours, until bendable, not crisp. You can also spread these with almond or other nut/seed butters, roll up and slice for a great party dish!

Word of the Day:  cocinar – cook

Tip of the Day: When you’re obsessing over someone, send them light and love and move on, right? I learned that from “Eat, Pray, Love.”
