TODAY MY DAUGHTER TOOK AN HERBAL CLASS

This pandemic has been a killer on my daughter’s social life! Yes, she’s only 7 but it’s been going on since she was 5 and the kid misses human connections. I’m so damn tired of hearing her talk about Roblox so when my friend, Diana brought up her friend’s herb class, I was excited to [...]

PEPPER SNACKS FROM RHYTHM’S FRESH FARM

I smile every time I see Rhythm reach for a pepper. She has learned how to make her own snacks and she often substitutes peppers for bread.

RHYTHM’S FRESH FARM

The disease is medically known as exophthalmia.  That is a condition where the eye of the fish is swollen and protrudes abnormally from its socket due to various underlying diseases.
