Hail to the Capricorns! December 22 - January 19
Well, this birthday found me. And just like that, I am SIXTY-FIVE.
Throughout our youth, we understand this age group to be Senior Citizens! Let me say that again, I am officially considered a Senior Citizen. Legit Medicare recipient. While I am fully embracing it and glad to be here, it is still such a mind bender that I am, well, a senior citizen. I am sure I am not alone when I declare how strongly I still feel like my younger self in all the various forms: sassy, capricious, curious, impressionable, playful, energetic, adventurous... all of it!
I also also acknowledge how those same traits helped me get to HERE! Sixty-five and still full of the girl that I used to be, and the woman I have become. Forever grateful to arrive at this wondrous place; right HERE, right now, Looking backward to propel me forward. Oh my, the future looks Bright!
The personality of a Capricorn, Explained by Aliza Kelly - Allure Magazine
"The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorns and their unique spirits are powerful, to say the least. I've worked with thousands of clients over my nearly-10 year-long career as a professional astrologer, and I can confirm that there's something that makes Capricorn extremely special. Perhaps it's their fearless ambition? Their limitless resilience? Their ability to keep pushing forward, even in the face of challenging adversity and painful strife? Or, maybe it's their secret wild side that's very rarely depicted in standard personality assessments, but that rumbles within the soul of every Capricorn: Not everyone gets to see Capricorn ordering rounds of tequila, dancing on the table, and staying out until the crack of dawn — but that rebellious, untamed spirit is a Capricorn asset. I mean, how else do you expect this zodiac sign to let loose and have fun?
Indeed, inside every earnest Capricorn is a mischievous troublemaker (in tarot, Capricorn is symbolized by the "devil" card). Though this earth sign may seem a bit conservative and restrained at first, Capricorn's closest friends and lovers know that these sea goats love to party.
Interestingly, Capricorns are said to age backwards: they become increasingly youthful, optimistic, and playful as they mature.

What to cook for a cold winters day?
Chicken Tortilla Soup, Baby!
Here is a perfectly satisfying dinner to serve up on a cold winters night!
A good friend made this dinner for me. I took the recipe, and have served it several times this winter! It is so hearty, rich, and satisfying on a winter evening.
I've also included a winter cocktail favorite: Whiskey Sour. It pairs nicely with this dinner plan (as well we like to serve with ice cold Modelo Espécial).
Serve with salad greens. Finish with a simple flan to soften the residual of the rich, bold broth that makes this soup so wonderful and memorable.
Note : A few things I changed
1) The recipe does NOT call for Hominy, but I added a 15 oz can (or 2) to make it almost like a chili.
2) I added 1 small bag frozen corn or 2-3 ears fresh corn cooked and cut from cobb.
2) I added the juice of 2 whole limes to the broth - YUMMY!!
3) I boiled 3 skinless chicken breast in 2 cups water 1 cup chicken broth (or until chicken is covered) Slow boil for 25 min - let it cool and shredded it.
4) I upped the quantity of Chipotle pepper & sauce from from 1-2 teas. to 1 tbs.
This meal plan is a home run! Soup, salad, simple dessert.
WINTER SALE, BABY!
