We are blessed to live in a beautiful place. When we decided to leave the big, bad, violent city behind and go elsewhere for our retirement we never imagined we could find such a wonderful, peaceful, natural and affordable setting. Thank you God!
Let me take you on a tour. As you drive into the community you will notice a beautiful assortment of spring/summer flowers.
This is our home. We enjoy lunch on our deck weather permitting. Our neighbors drive by on golf carts and wave when they go by. You can see the cow pasture behind us. No cows were out when this was taken but they do come down to the fence to say “hello.”
The humming-bird feeder in front of my studio window. Bob and I both enjoy watching birds at this feeder.
I like to go down to the lake for my morning meditation weather permitting.
Enjoy the wonderful view of the lake as you leave the property. Be careful and drive slowly, we don’t want to have to pull you out of the water. 🙂
Last week I found myself at a small town farmer’s market. One of the things that came home with me was a zucchini. Some of it went into zucchini and tomatoes and the rest found it’s way into the lovely loaf of gluten free zucchini bread pictured above. I used my mother’s zucchini bread recipe with my usual substitutions — agave nectar, flax seed meal and hot water, unsweetened applesauce, buckwheat flour and all purpose gluten free flour. I also added chopped walnuts and to be just a little naughty chocolate chips. You can convert your own recipes. It’s not that hard, but it can take a little time and experimentation to figure out your substitutions.
