There aren’t too many things I can complain about right now. Well, maybe the wind. I’m not a fan of windy weather. I suppose it’s another excuse to wear my cozy Uggs in the middle of June though. Despite the less than ideal climate, home life is pretty plush; the eats are particularly superb.

Chop 2 small ripe peaches and 3-4 ripe apricots and place in a small mixing bowl. Add ~1/2 c. chopped onion, 1/3 c. chiffonade of fresh basil, and 1/2 – 1 whole [red or green] jalapeno pepper – finely chopped. Sprinkle with a couple teaspoons of sugar, a pinch of salt, and drizzle of olive oil.

Bake @ 450* until fish is opaque, approx. 12 minutes [depending on thickness].

Hair is a serious matter.
Not only do I strive to keep my insides at their healthiest, but I also believe maintaining your outer
beauty health is important too. I like to give my mane a healthy trim every 3-4 months. How important is skin/hair care to you? How often do you get your hairs trimmed?
