Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

From the Strawberry Fields

Also being celebrated...Li'l Woofer Day

Strawberry fields can be overwhelmingly stunning and impressive. Not just the massiveness of the fields themselves but the gloriousness of all the red when the plants are ripe for the picking. Then, there is the eating! Strawberries are absolutely terrific by themselves but top them with a generous portion of whipped cream and voila! yum! yum! yummy! The deliciousness doesn't stop there for strawberries are great in salads, in a marinade, with/on/in ice cream, baked in/served on desserts...well, that's only a start. With strawberries being so versatile and California being the nation's leading producer of strawberries, it is not surprising for a day to be set aside for a 'combo' celebration.

March 21 is...
California Strawberry Day


Look at all you get from the strawberry fields...

Strawberries are a bona fide superfood! Nutrient-rich, packed with Vitamin C, boost immunity, promote eye health, help fight cancer, keep wrinkles at bay, fight bad cholesterol, reduce inflammation, regulate blood pressure, boosts fiber, aid in weight management & promote pre-natal health.
