Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

I love Gourds and pumpkins and warm autumn days and a harvest moon! I love October because it’s my birth month. It’s a celebration all month long! I love warm cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes and long walks. I love the crunching sound the dead leaves make under my feet kicking them up as I walk and the gorgeous colour of autumn leaves surrounding us with orange, yellow, gold, purple and red. It’s beautiful. Autumn is a time for new beginnings.

There are so many reasons to love Fall. For one, Halloween originated from a Celtic festival for the dead called Samhain. It emanates scary haunted ghosts, skeletons and graveyards. It is the day before All Saints Day. Fall is a time for hearty soups and apple OR pumpkin pie and the scent of cinnamon cloves in hot apple cider OR a pumpkin scented candle! I love mini chocolate treats, candy and decorations. O and the witches brew made with dry ice! Some of my favourite snacks are Rice Krispie treats and Frito-lay Poppables.

When I was young and use to go trick or treating, I loved to haul my candy out on the table to look at and savour it. It was in the usual manner that we prayed a blessing over dinner reciting

“Bless us O Lord and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty through Christ Our Lord. Amen”

October 8th is when we celebrate Thanksgiving this year 
but I am deprived with no memories of this feast.

Don't Eat That

The food pyramid is a lie, meat fat is good for you, and many (if not most) health problems are treatable with diet alone. I'm in remission from severe arthritis (multiple joints replaced), chronic fatigue, depression and a plethora of other symptoms from changing how I eat. This blog chronicles how my family and my parents eat and what it's done for us.
