Banana Butter

I knew I was keeping those ripe bananas for something!

I not only love this recipe because of it’s simplicity, but it’s SO delicious!  I use it on waffles, pancakes, in smoothies, on hot quinoa cereal, basically anywhere you’d use nut butter!  I recommend letting the flavors meld for 30 minutes after you mix it up (makes the flavors pop more!).

Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month.

A very informative post from ChronicleMe

Let me out

5 Jun

Trapped in a space that’s
white, clean, pristine, clinical
Not what she’s used to
She aches to come home again
She should be with family


My child

Yes, she’s a loner
Wandering around solo
She texts. Sends pictures
She’s never really alone
We hang on her every word



Summer Dreams

Summer Dreams

Summer starts tomorrow for Paris and Ciel. A summer of band camps, smattered all over the calendar.

I’m not planning on taking any time off work – maybe just a day here and there to take a day trip. Summer vacation had been planned, but circumstances have caused those plans to be canceled.

When I was younger, summer was a given – we’d pack up the car and head down to Eccles-on-Sea and live in a caravan for 3 months. Around these (US) parts, that maybe known as a mobile home. Except, it wasn’t really a mobile home. It was definitely a caravan.

Aunts and cousins were there, also. And friends we’d made through the years. I still keep in touch with some of those friends, even today. Facebook is a wonderful thing!

Days were spent wading in the sea, building castles, digging in the sand, playing Go To Coventry. Evenings were spent telling ghost stories, or sitting around a fire, or running from caravan to caravan. As we got older, we experimented with hard cider. Eccles is where I had my first under-age hangover, and where my brother got freaked out about a HUGE rabbit hole that appeared in front of him and grew as he tried to sidestep around it! Thank you, Bulmers. Thank you.

What does your summer look like?

Tanka has become my “blockage-eradictor”. Get stuck? Write tanka!

I was inspired last week to listen to the Psybient channel on Songza. I heard about it on a podcast, and I wish I could remember which one. The host was talking about using music for productivity and said that he found the tunes on the Psybient channel helped him focus. So I tried. And came to the same conclusion.

Heres my tanka about the Psybient channel …

psybient, chill out
tune in, turn on, drop out, k?
