new blog

I decided to start a new blog for nature and everything else – jillpill51.wordpress.com – 51 – because I was born that year.

healthy marigolds and in remembrance

What humans can eat is the flower part. But they repel garden pests so they are win win.

My dad died November 4, 1954 – 56 years ago – amazing how time flies. I always remember the day though. Here are the things I did on this Nov. 4. I put up a bird feeder and Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal found it right away, but I didn’t get a picture of the Mrs. I went to the clinic to read for Reach Out and Read, but no kids showed up, so I enjoyed reading a book and magazine. I came home and wasted time on the computer and fixed food. I subscribed to the blog of Paul and Ann Malkmus (see link on right) and loved the idea of the Salad Bar. I will definitely be doing this in the future – what a time saver that will be! YAY!

homemade muesli

After learning it’s best to eat nuts raw I’m not making granola anymore. I will work with muesli. The link tells a lot about muesli. It should be soaked before eating, at least 1/2 hour.

muesli recipes

Hopefully I won’t be buying any more muesli at $4-5 per bag – just too much to pay. It takes more time to make things at home, but so worth it.
