Tostadas--So Easy an Old Stoner Can Make Them

Hippie Cook form Portland!


Made it to Portland two days ago....checked myself into - Yep, you guesster! America's Best Inn and Suites! The rates, as I told you before, are lovely. Here they are like a full apartment, living room, kitchen, bedroom....for as little as $60. On - line you can get them for about $40! Wow, the salesman in me is making it's appearance known already and it isn't even six in the morning. Ahhhh whatever! I move out of here today, as I scored a great pad to live in! I will be sharing a house with a couple. I feel really good about this situation and it is one block from my all-time favorite strip of shops, restaurants and other business. It is in the exact location that I wanted to be in! Grahoooovin!!!!! I will give you a sneak peek at my space. It is a two room suite (sweet) situation with my own bathroom, on the downstairs level. My new friends live on the upper floor...I FEEL it is going to be a great place to hang my hippie hat for the time being.....which by the way I found one at a very cool consignment  store in Weed, California on my way up! Ride On!

Office and Personal Living Space for Me to Write, do Art and Blog to You!!!!

-Place for cooking some Healthy CLEAN Meals-
So you see....I was telling you about my feelings in my January 8th blog that I was not feeling the vibe every time I would go on Craigslist to look for a place. Well now I know why! I had a strong pull to look on Craigslist when I was in Laguna Beach, at my friends house Phil and Judy's this past I did and followed the feeling!!!

Soooo the New Pad is in gear....
Been about a year in the making and now it is finally happening!
The great thing about this place and the synchronicity that I found the minute I walked into the space. 
When I was in Phoenix, I went shopping with my friends, Pam, Cam, and Trish.
I found the most awesome pillows!!!!!
It was then that I decided I would make my space in Portland reflect the vibe of the pillows,
I bought the pillows, a tassel, some beaded bracelets ( 5 ) ( even though I did not know what I was going to use these for... ) and I went so far as to get myself some QUEEN brown sheets, a LIME GREEN furry hipster blanket and 3 lantern type deals that I envisioned hanging from a chain from the ceiling with candles in them for the ambiance I desired while meditating...So anyway, I am unpacking my stuff and I realize a PERFECT MATCH energetically. The Bed is a Queen. The Sofa is LIME green. All the colors co-ordinate and the place is fully furnished.....which is what I need since I came with only my stuff,,,no furniture!
WOW!!! I was psyching into the space before I even got there!
We all can do this...JUST LET GO AND ALLOW...
Follow what gives you Passion.
Trust your Vibes.

So now I best be getting off of here and packing up the rest of my stuff and taking the last bit of my things to the new pad and heading the Mothership to Tacoma to make a buck.

Can't wait to share with you all the DIVINE LINE-UPS that are ahead.

Will be so nice to be planted and work out of my new space.
May you allow your  day to be full of divine interventions,
the right people, place, situations will appear to give you your best life.
Let Go...Love What Is...And BE VERY KIND TO YOURSELF!
Peace, Love and Soft Landings,

Getting Back to THE MOUNTAINS!!!!

Hey there! How are you this wonderful morning? I realize it has been an extremely long time since I have written in here..I have been crazy busy "couch surfing" ! The trip from Vegas to Arizona presented a wonderful opportunity! I planned on staying with my friends in Cave Creek while I was there. They ended up inviting me to go with them to their place in Colorado for a week! So, I no sooner arrived in Arizona then headed there with them. At 8000 feet elevation the beauty of the mountains, snow and all the wildlife I saw was BREATHTAKING,.... literally and figuratively! My room in the cabin was great and I was able to try out my new "hotspot" from Sprint that gives me wireless ANYWHERE. !!! Nifty little devise and will be a perfect little addition to the blogging family of tools that are needed to "blog from the road"....The smell of the fire. The good food we made each day and the conversation was wonderful! We went snowmobiling and I really loved going back to Telluride for some shopping. It is a wonderful little town with great little shops and restaurants. I was able to find some great goodies and get some more ideas for The Blast From the Past Store! Grandson, Wyatt scored a groovey "Get Back on the Bike" type of jacket that I found in a shop there.
It was his Christmas present and when I saw it I knew it was meant for him...!

So I would have to say the best part of the trip for me by far was seeing all the wildlife and staying at the cabin and being with wonderful friends....Seriously.... We saw so many, many different kinds of wildlife and animals all around us. The topper was the Eagle that we saw. I was not able to get a pic of that but "oh well"  Here are some pictures!!!!  I LOVE NATURE. It  makes me happy and the CONNECTION I feel when I am in it......calms me and connects me to ME.
Takes me back to a place where I once belonged.

Ok so there you go! I will write more later and maybe make one of those Smile box videos again... as I had more adventures back in Arizona and Sedona...and a trip over to California with friends in Laguna Beach...but for now I am sitting here in is 9:50 in the morning on Wednesday the 26th of January and I am getting ready to hop back in the Mothership and drive the last leg of my trip to Portland and start the new life!!!!! See where spirit takes me!
Have some contacts I will see about where to hang my hat and be in the flow for what is to come!!!
Peace and Love Man...and don't forget to Shine Your Spirit today~!!

Gettin' Back to Posting 1st Day of New Year!!

Soooooo! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years Eve! It is now New Years Day and 2011!!!! I thought it best to start out the day right and update the blog! 
Going to Experience A SLICE of HEAVEN in 2011
and sending the same to all my Hippie Friends!

Grahooovin!!!!  So much has happened since posting the slideshow below, about the messages I found in Portland! While I was working in Portland, I would occasionally look on Craigslist for apartments to rent, but I just wasn't feeling the vibe... the timing wasn't right to commit - ya know? (Gotta pay close attention to those feelings!!!)..A great thing happened though, before I came down here! I WAS able to bring my things down to Oregon and not have to leave them in Seattle!  Yeah!!!!!   A WAY opened up and I took them out of the storage unit and put them in my friends garage, She lives in Beaverton and that worked out perfect! So anyway, I respected this feeling about not getting a place yet...and decided it best to just make my way south. Christmas with my family would be at my mom's in Las Vegas.  I also wanted to take some time after Christmas to go to Phoenix to be with my daughter, her love and my grandson,  and see my friends . With all that on the plate,  the idea of actually settling seems far away, but I will move with what my heart is telling me..So I drove BACK down  to Vegas some 1300 miles,,,,,totaling now to about 5000 miles traveled since mid November and had a wonderful time with my family and my son and his girlfriend. I also had a wonderful "GET BACK" time with my friend Silvia, whom I met in Vegas some 13 years ago, when I we were doing interior designe work together at a local store! Wow! We spent the day together at "The Spa" at The Red Rock Resort where I was staying!  We talked each others ears off while we worked out,,,and enjoyed the incredible spa! Had some lunch and what a wonderful time to catch up on a very special friendship. She and her husband will always be great friends!  Jash and Sheva and I spent our Christmas together in their beautiful hotel room and downstairs at the Terra Rossa for dinner and afterwords reminiscing at a place called The Onyx Bar.. BEST OF ALL for me  was being able  to give them a present I had been wanting to give them for TWO YEARS!!! Tickets to The Beatles- Love. CIRQUE DU SOLEIL...They went on Monday night Dec, 27th night and I snapped some great photo's of them while they were opening the gift on Christmas! Jash got Sheva the most incredible vintage opera binoc's from Paris, France, as I gave him prior knowledge of their Christmas present.

I asked Jash what he wanted for Christmas this year and he said " Oh, just peace on earth mom..." so I made this....
