Endings and New Beginnings: Updates, Goodbyes & Resets

I did not post a blog in November – my first time to skip a month since I started writing last year. I simply could not get myself to do it; I couldn’t get myself to log on to WordPress PERIOD.So once again I apologize for all the posts I’ve missed from the blogs I…

Another Autumn Recipe: Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

I’m here posting food and displays again – this time in the true spirit of October. Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins. My sister actually came across the recipe on Facebook weeks ago and tagged me in it, knowing how much I love butterscotch. And I was needing something else do a blog on for the month (let’s…

Pickles & Pumpkins

Aside from the rustic jars you find at a cute farmer’s market or treats you might buy at a fall fair, pickles are obviously not what comes to mind when you think of October and the Halloween season. I know this. But my garden cucumbers came a little late and I had to wait to…

Dutch Apple Bread for Mabon

I’m finally posting another recipe blog! It’s been several months since I’ve done one of these, and I had to make a dessert over the weekend, so it seemed like a good opportunity to dress up this sweet, cakey quickbread in a display of Mabon flair – hence the corresponding fruits of the “Apple and…

Another Heartbreak for the End of the Year

I don’t even know how to start this post.  I don’t want to start it, for one thing. With what has happened in the past few weeks, I have lost the desire to write rather than being compelled to it.  It’s a matter of having so much to say and so little emotional strength left…

November Sights, Thoughts and Weird Feelings

My Lunch and Afternoon at Grogg’s Green Barn

I’m backtracking a bit for this blog post; the later half of last week was so busy, I didn’t get a chance to do a blog on my prize lunch at Grogg’s Green Barn. It was last Thursday – a gray, overcast October afternoon-turned-autumn monsoon with yet another heavy rainstorm for the year. But before the downpour hit, I had a nice time out; I really enjoyed my lunch

Full Moon Oracle, More Synchronicities & A Word About Intuition

Another 13th. Another full moon. Another card reading. If I’m starting to sound like a broken record, I apologize. There are things in this post I did not want to ramble on about again either. I’m downing some caffeine and forcing myself to write up this blog. I am so out of it. I feel…

Pumpkin Patch and a Treat: Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake

The feeling of fall has truly settled in. Not with the foliage colors yet, but the mornings and nights are chilly now. Rain gives a ghostly, misty haze. The days become more quiet outside and the ominous sound of emergency sirens more prevalent against a hushed nature. It is October in Oklahoma. Currently it is…
