June 10th begins our local Portugal Day celebration (over 3 days). It’s like a street fair with performances, food, drinks, and crafts.  The sun finally graced us (after what seemed like a solid week of rain) and the warmer temps plus low humidity helped bring out the crowd.

We are grateful to be a part of a city that recognizes and celebrates its diversity.

TBT: Cereal Edition

The recent Pop culture trend seems to center around the “Reboot” a revival of things from days gone by – a blast from the past !  You see this in fashion, TV shows and even music.  So, on this #TBT I submit a treasure chest of sugary goodies that is breakfast cereal.

A recent conversation with “hubby” prompted a google search for a cereal I used to see on the shelf of our grocery store but didn’t remember who made it.  He was off to get his tablet and scored this.

Enjoy this trip down memory lane.

. . .until next time.

Is it Spring??

Here we are almost the middle of May and we have been on a roller coaster of temperatures from 86 degrees (Apr 29) to 54 degrees (May 7).

I love the “patches” of green sprinkled throughout the horizon in hopes the warm weather will come back and stick around for a while. . . or at least we can hope.
