Today: June 25th, NATIONAL LEON DAY
A big day for crafters, June 25 celebrates National Leon Day. Leon is Noel spelled backwards and June 25 marks the six month point until Christmas.
At Life with Moxie this is what we refer to as an opportunity to succeed.
“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned” – Benjamin Franklin
Give yourself 10 minutes to sit down with a calendar and back yourself out of important show times. Yom Kippur, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Guy Fawkes Day, what ever you know you are actively participating in between now and the end of the year.
Once “back to school starts” that means the next four major holidays will happen in about twelve seconds and that whole window of time evaporates. Get those on the calendar and then come forward and mark your planning days.
June 28, National Paul Bunyan day is celebrated across the country. It is suggested that on this day, take some time and read one of the Paul Bunyan original tales. Described as a giant and a lumberjack of unusual skill, Paul Bunyan is one of the most famous North American folklore heroes. In the tales, Paul Bunyan was almost always accompanied by his companion, Babe the Blue Ox.
June 29th NATIONAL PARCHMENT DAY
Last Wednesday of June, National Parchment Day arrives to bring innovation and convenience back to the kitchen. Parchment infuses flavor, locks in moisture and preserves vital nutrients and has long been a part of the traditional French kitchen. Ever versatile, parchment conveniently transitions from skillet to oven and from the grill to table. Its ability to be elegant as well as useful makes it one of the more effective tools in the kitchen.
Cooking “en papillote” enhances natural flavors, without the synthetic sprays and high-fat oils. Not only does culinary parchment simplify preparation and clean-up, but it’s also a much healthier and environmentally friendlier alternative to traditional cooking techniques. The French have cooked with parchment for centuries, perfecting taste and texture in every dish. It has long-served as the secret to preparing wholesome, healthy meals.
1 sheet Parchment Paper
6-8 small red potatoes cut in half
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2 -inch wedges
1 large zucchini, sliced 1/2-inch thick
2 large yellow squash, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 medium red bell pepper, sliced 1/2-inch thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning*
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a shallow baking pan with Parchment Paper.
Add sliced potatoes to baking pan and roast on top rack for 15 minutes
Place remaining vegetables in a large bowl. Add olive oil, seasoning or fresh herbs, salt and pepper and toss to coat.
After 15 minutes cooking is complete, remove from oven and add remaining vegetables. Spread vegetables in a single layer. Sprinkle additional Italian seasonings or fresh herbs on top of the vegetables, if desired.
Return pan to the oven on the top rack.
Bake 15 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Squeeze a lemon or splash balsamic vinegar over vegetables for even more flavor.
Weekly Cleaning Tip!
Last week we did outdoor spaces and grill.
If you didn’t get around to it when we first discussed, call and get you’re A/C unit serviced, it will not only save you money but the performance overall will be so much better because it will be working in peak condition.
I know we talk weekly about little things to do to help us gain control of our days and our time and I keep hearing feed back that they are great ideas and people soooo want to but then they don’t. Why?
Women especially tend to go through our days meeting everyone else’s needs then assume what ever level of pride (or resentment) there is from that. If we step back and look in, who spends their days like that…? Paid employees, who then go home and theorectically have their own life. Where were “you” in that day? What did you do for you? Did it further a goal you have? Or did you just give yourself a 2 minute break from being staff? When are we going to get tired of our lives just passing? I want you to come to the end of every day feeling proud of how much you got done and looking forward to the next day because you’ll get even further. To do that we have to decide we want it more than we are afraid of the change.
Marianne Williamson said,
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
So todays weekly cleaning tip is to regroup, decide that we are going to commit to OURselves and get some key needs of ours on that calendar! What ever that means for you, but something... make it matter, because YOU are worth it!
In order to maximize your budget and your time, keeping track of what is typically on sale and when, can keep you organized and stocked!

Special Guest, Chris Lombardo,
Family Law Attorney and Partner of Woodward, Pires & Lombardo, P.A.
Chris joined us to discuss the concept, methodology and expression of parental alienation and the extreme risk caused to children both short-term and long-term, even generational affects.
Just a few of the tragic statistics included:
Significant increase in Heart disease and diabetes,
240% increase in hepatitis,
390% increase in lung disease,
460% increase in depression,
1000% increase in suicide as well as a
20 year shorter life expectancy than their parents.
You don't have to like your Ex, but you MUST
put your children first as they are the first casualty of your war.
