Change is in the air...

there's a change coming... can you feel it?



i know fall will be here soon... it has to be... even though our local temps are supposed to spend the week in the mid 90's.

there are other changes too... another test tomorrow which may reveal some answers... hopefully...

then by the end of the week a really big change. i am not ready to share what it is yet, but i will... this year has been so full of change. through it all i've tried to remember this word ...sometimes with more success than other times...

i'm looking forward to the cooler weather...hopefully i'll be able to get out in the garden a bit when the weather turns, getting it ready for it's winter sleep. i don't plan to plant anything for fall, but rather get as much ready so i can plant in the spring. i still need to pull up the little white fencing i had placed around it to keep the beast out of the garden. i went out friday around dusk to see if there was any to be harvested and ended up getting my foot caught in the between space of the posts and fell pretty hard. nothing broken, thank the goddess, but lots of bruises and scratches.



i'm still trying to do little things to keep my spirits up as best i can. yesterday i went to herbal class, i hadn't been in months, but it felt good to be with like-minded women and work with herbs again. this morning i put together a ginger oil. i've tried making ginger honey before, but it didn't turn out so this time i'm trying an oil and am doing it a little different. i'll let you know how it turns out in about six weeks.

i think i'm off to play in the kitchen now, i feel a need to make banana bread (don't like letting bananas go bad) and i've been ruminating on trying a peach bread. what do you think? i have a lot of peaches and i am not a cobbler fan so i thought maybe a bread? we shall see i suppose...

enjoy your day...

Yes, I'm so ready for Fall too...my absolute favorite time of year.

Thank goodness you're okay after your spill, it's not good when the garden turns on you!

Peach bread sounds fantastic! We have a peach tree that should produce fruit next year, can't wait. :)

Hi Laura...sounds like you've been feeling yourself lately :) Yay! I, too, have been looking forward to fall/Mabon. Counting the hours practically! This weekend we dropped 25 degrees! It was fall here! Last night was 40 degrees and today is forecasted to be a whopping 70! Only a teaser though, temps start climbing again tomorrow...but it was nice :) Nice to see you again, take care and Blessings...ER

Laura my sweetheart I can tell that I haven't been around much...so much has been happening with you...you poor girl :0(
I hope you are feeling a little better after all of the horrid tests...
You seem so positive though...and I know that you have a massive inner strength to fall back on.
Hope you enjoy the banana bread :0)
