Hiking for People Who Hate Hiking
I am remarkably happy and upbeat today! Considering I was a bit tired yesterday from being out all night at the movies watching Avengers End Game, I'm bright eyed and bushy tailed.
My day started off busy as I had a number of errands to run, specifically for my daughter Gianna. Nothing like waiting till the day before Easter vacation ends to get a few items for a project that is due tomorrow! So, off I went (with Gianna) to Staples for supplies for her poetry project.
Next stop, the juice bar for my daily juice. A yummy blend of carrot, green apple, lemon, orange and romaine lettuce.
Last, but not least, me and Gianna headed to Dad's to spend some time and get his menu in order for the week ahead. Me, my sis and mom will be planning out some really tasty vegan specialties for Dad, now that his appetite is returning.
One recipe, in particular that my sis has been cooking for my Dad which has been known to be very healing is Hippocrates Soup. This particular recipe was developed by Max Gerson, founder of the Gerson Institute for Cancer treatment,
Mr. Gerson started treating cancer alternatively more than 70 years ago and included in this therapy is eating Gerson’s Hippocrates Soup recipe that heals and strengthens the immune system and kidneys.
You don't have to be sick to eat healthy!! Here is the recipe:

I found a super enjoyable article about hiking for those who generally do not enjoy hiking. Sounds like an oxymoron, but, many people like being outdoors and walking for enjoyment, rather than as a rigorous activity.

Here's to a wonderful Sunday!
From the Symphony to Cycling and more
Yup it's meeeee bopping in again for what seems more like the every other day Daily Scoop. I'm hoping to organize my time better to where (I don't sleep at all - just kidding) and can actually blog daily as planned!!!!
Sooooooo since I'm of course on my way out once again - this time to go on a bike ride, then ice skating, have plenty of packing to do, shopping for the trip and for the kitchen for while I'm out of town. Shopping for Chaplin's birthday (Tuesday), I have a beauty appointment that had to be rescheduled from Wednesday to today - since it is the only place I can sort of squeeze it in. Then back home to make dinner and go see the new Avengers movie. Whew!
Last night was another sort of totally different entertainment when I went to the Symphony to see Mozart's Jupiter.
More pics and updates when I can squeeze in more time on the computer.
Heading out to pedal,
