From My Kitchen Window
I live up on a hill and I
Keep in touch with earth and sky
From my kitchen window.
A panorama for a king
Is mine each day. And everything
Is ever lovely here.
There below me lies the town,
I watch the road veins winding down
Into its very heart.
Up above me, blue or grey,
I watch the sky life every day.
Such sights I see!
The sunset colors all aglow,
The fog, the sleet, the rain and snow
Are fascinating things.
I see the birds in winter flight,
I watch the stars come out at night
And pepper up the sky.
The lights come on down in the town
And glisten like a sparkling gown,
And then it seems
As if both earth and sky are one.
And oh, I think its so much fun
To live up on a hill so I
Can keep in touch with earth and sky
From my kitchen window!

Now that we are approaching colder seasons, I heartily recommend a warm cup of green tea with the a sweetener of choice and a teaspoon of lemon vinegar…especially right before bed. (I use decaf then.)
It’s very calming and the health benefits are many.
Tried something very simple on the Foreman Grill: pineapple rings sprinkled with cinnamon. Packed quite a taste punch, low in calories, and satisfied a sweet need.
Deciding on what to cook during the Dog Days of August is always a challenge. Here’s something that was both easy and cool.
I chopped up some of my supply of spring mix and added it to some cooled, cooked orzo I had prepared. I chopped up three spicy, kosher dill spears and added them along with some freshly ground pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. I threw in some chopped green onion that I had on hand. Then sprinkled some red wine vinegar salad dressing on top. Mixed it all up and put in in the fridge for a few hours. Delish…and great the next day for lunch as well.
