Stars and Crystals and other Natural Beauties

Found this beautiful fortress of solitude attached to the lid of a
 container of fresh mangoes hidden in the freezer last summer.

Pic above is a little hard to see, but tonight Jupiter is to the left of the moon (brightest spot) and Venus is visible below the moon near the bottom of the frame (Click on pic and zoom)

This was on the evening of February 26th. I think it was the apex of the event.
Maybe not, but I really wanted to say apex.

That's right! Word Nerds unite!

So the moon is the bright spot
and Jupiter is to the left about an inch and
 then Venus is the little bright spot near the bottom of the pic below the moon.
Isn't amazing how bright the moon is when its only reflecting the light
of that big beautiful burning star we affectionately call the sun?

Speaking of pretty burning things...

accidental candle art

Someone had the bright idea of putting a pillar candle in
a lantern. Not the brightest idea, but it actually turned
into this beautiful work of art.

Okay onto some edibles.....

 My favorite "treat" breakfast is from the Whole Foods
breakfast hot bar.
Scrambled tofu with fresh spinach, seasoned potatoes and a dollop of guac.
Yum! and all!

The So delicious Coconut Milk Greek Yogurt is really tasty.
Not a fan of the chocolate flavor.
But the blueberry and strawberry are great.

The Greek style yogurt is so chocked full of good nutrients
I cant feel bad eating it. It would be great for breakfast.
But I had it with my lunch today.

Following the coconut theme...

Coconut Cream Pie Lara Bar

Yum is all i can say.

Sweet in the right kind of way.
Creamy in a melt in your mouth kind of way.
