Sorry, have not posted in the last couple of months, but there is never enough time!

My apologies for being lax in posting, but it is hard with work, having 3 YouTube channels and doing my daily activities to get to everything.  I will make the effort to try and post something at least once a month.

I hope everyone is doing well in their lives, even with all the ups and downs experienced from both your own personal and the global situation, vis a vie the virus, but we have to look at the big perspective always and know there is good in everything.  For example, today I went to pick up a whole bunch of grapefruit from someone who left them out for others to have for free.  Such wonderful gestures like this in the world are heartwarming and if you have an abundance of fruits/vegetables/herbs growing then find a way to share them.  This person is part of a site called Nextdoor and I am, too and they have in communities, I believe all over the US, so find yours and join, as never know what will find.  They have a section for free things and that is where found the person posting about the fruit and also people have household items to give away and I recently got a storage cabinet and looking at some other items, as well.

May you all have only blessings in life and look to the good in all, no matter what happens!

I Wish There Were More Then 24 Hours in a Day!

My time seems to get delegated elsewhere, as have not written anything here since June.
I wish I had more time to spare, as it is always filled with other things that take priority/precedence in my life.

I hope will be able to at least write once a month and share something.
Actually, I just thought of something as I am writing this. I have been dealing with some challenges regarding the place I live and really need to move and have beem trying to do so since moving here 20 months ago and nothing has materialized that is suitable (although there were a couple of opportunities and maybe I goofed, by not taking them at the time, only G-d knows!).

Then I thought the other day, can it get any worse?? G-d put me here (meaning in this particular place where residing now) for a reason and from here it can only get better. When you are at the bottom of the bottom, you can not go any lower, only higher. I am not complaining and am so so grateful for all the good and blessings in my life and can never give enough thanks to The Almighty G-d for everything. I simply need to live in a neighborhood that is peaceful and quiet and I pray to The One Ab-ove it happens very soon.

I read a quote got in an email today for inspiration that would like to share:
Keep Going! Everything you need will come to you at the perfect time!
It is exactly what I need to hear right now and I think it applies to everyone!

Spend time in Nature – It is Healing for Mind, Body & Soul

I have a park, Balboa Park not far from where I live now and try to get there almost daily. It has lots of beautiful trees, flowers and different types of animals and critters. There are so many birds flying around, singing that I hear and sometimes see up close because I have binoculars. I see ones of different colors and sizes. Some are blue, brown, yellow and of course the pigeons and black crows. I even a couple of times saw some big cranes that I think flew out of the zoo and they can stand still and not move for a very long time and think they are not alive. It is a joy to me and a pasttime that I have been doing more since the work I have been doing slowed down since mid-March. I enjoy it so much and every time is a new experience.

I see lots of squirrels (I call them squirrely whirleys) and are not supposed to feed them, but I just leave my food scraps that would compost anyway and let them do what they want. The last few times I had corn cobs broken up into pieces and the squirrel grabs it in its mouth and runs away to hide because other squirrels would try to get it from them and once saw 2 squirrels chasing 1 that had the corn cob. The other day there was a bigger piece and the squirrel took it with all paws because too big to put in the mouth. Some of them know me already and I speak to them in Hebrew and some come right up to me and have had them even sniff my toes and their paws touched my skirt and 1 even climbed up on the lower portion of my skirt, but then shooed it off because not sure if is a good idea. Lately their have been lots more baby squirrels and they are so cute and little. They get scared of dogs, so have there own distress signal that sound to alert the others and it a squeaky noise and then they run very fast and disappear far away from their supposed danger. I say to them,”what the squeak?” Sometimes is a false alarm and then after they come back to where they were before.

I also hear and/or see hummingbirds and some have such beautiful colors. I know the sounds they make, that is why I know it is a hummingbird. Sometimes I can look at them for a while because are perched on a branch and not flittering around fast. I also see butterflies and lizards and talk to them, too.

I have lately been seeing lots of bunny rabbits and I enjoy watching them munch on the grass and run from place to place. I could spend hours watching them. They are so cute and are smart eaters because consume vegetation that is natural, fresh and raw. The other day I saw 6 bunnies. 1 was in a different area then usual and it stood up for me on its hind legs and was very close to me and then ran away. The other 5 were in an area where like to graze and stand at a distance with my binoculars to observe them. There were 2 little ones and 3 bigger ones. They are scared of people and dogs, but not if there is a bird or squirrel near them.

It is such a pleasure to have this place at my disposal to connect with things that I enjoy and give me joy and something to do that can relax and also be healing. I hope each one of you can find something like this, too and spend the time doing it, as it is worth snd to me is better then any show, movie, sporting event, concert, etc could ever be, as real things are happening with the creations of The Almighty G-d.

For those who are “stuck” inside, here are some photos of my walk in Balboa Park

Hope you enjoy these beautiful photos took of different flowers and also an amazing tree, to give you something different to view, instead of watching all the news because we need things to uplift our spirits and boost our immune system. I will be posting a video on my youtube channel shortly of my walk through the Trees for Health Garden at Balboa Park and will share that here once it is posted.

I was talking to my Mom yesterday and gave her the idea to do a google search for flowers, birds, gardens and also videos, so can see beautiful things and make you feel better, if can’t go out for a walk as I can. Also, if you have a porch or way to sit out and get some fresh air and look at the trees, flowers and birds do that daily. Finally, smell some things that make you feel good, if you have any essentials oils like lavendar, peppermint, etc.

Please share your positive stories/experiences during this time

I have faith in a Higher Power and feel loved and protected and do not put any significance to anything else and remain calm, cool and collected.
Be safe, be well, be happy, be healthy!
If we stay positive it keeps the immune system strong.
Sing a song that makes you feel good.
Dance around by yourself of with your children.
Do some arts & crafts you like, but never had the time to do like coloring, needlepoint, etc.
Being silly is also good – make funny faces 😋 😬 🤓 😜 in the mirror, make animal 🐒 🕊🐓 🦃 🐕 🐈 noises and talk gibberish by making up you own language. This will keep your spirits upbeat!
If you ever heard of “laughter yoga” – now would be a good time to practice it. Look it up online, as I am sure there are videos to show you how to do it.
Even if you have the virus 😷 🤕 🤒, staying upbeat and smiling 😊 😄 will help you get well faster.

Giving Thanks & Showing Gratitude for everything we have is also very important

How do I get rid of the dust/dirt or what is the lesson supposed to learn from it??

This may not be health related, but I guess I just need to vent about it in writing.
If you have a natural solution, please do share, as I am out of ideas what to do.

It is an endless losing battle in the apartment where I have been living now, not by choice, but because nothing else was available and there for just over a year. I have been trying to move since I moved in, but hard to find something in the right area, for the right price and the amenities I want.

I do not like to complain, as there is a reason from G-d for everything and He knows what is best, regardless of whether I like the situation or not! I am having a hard time with the amount of physical dust and dirt that builds up inside the apartment and it nevers seems to go away. It is the worst I have seen in any place I have lived. I am in the downtown area of the city and is much dirtier in general outside, anyway, but I keep the windows closed because of noise and open the patio door slightly on occasion for some air. I live on the 3rd floor of a 100 year old building. It is still functional, but really needs to be updated, as the floors are the main problem with the dirt and whatever I do, sweep, mop, still gets dirty right away. I do not wear my outside shoes inside either and the bottom of my slippers get full of dust constantly. It is hopeless, so I do not put much of my energy into obssesively cleaning it and just pray will be able to move soon, G-d willing.

So what is the lesson to learn? Dirt and dust will never stop existing and not to put too much energy to worry about it. Yes, you need to clean, but not go crazy, especially as it bothers me more then others. I have to know there are more important things in life amd focus on those and do the best I can in the situation.

Thanks for reading this and if you have any comments or suggestions, would appreciate it.

Check out my youtube channel for my series on Vegan Real Food Bars

I have found some great food bars that are great to have on hand when you need a healthy snack, afternoon/anytime energy pick me up, after exercise, for all ages and all made from real food ingredients. Some are higher in protein and also have beneficial nutritional profile, including important vitamins and minerals, like calcium, iron, etc.
