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.

Cheers for Fall: Chilled Sparkling Apple Cider

Friday the 13th Full Harvest Moon

The only thing that sounds more magickal and spookier than a full moon on a Friday the 13th…is a full moon on Friday the 13th in October. But a full Harvest Moon in September is quite enchanting in its own right and it’s no surprise this eerie lunar event made headlines. My Friday the 13th…

A Look Back: My Past Fall Photography

I’ve been taking a break from writing and working on my website, I had been doing so much lately with blog posts and pages, and I felt I could use a rest from it. But with the (much anticipated) approach of autumn, now is a good time for a little throwback to some of my…
