Heading into the holiday season. I have made a conscious decision to make or create, in some way, all of the gifts I give to my circle of girlfriends. I have so many things that sit in a drawer, that I know someone else could make use of. Unused frames, beautiful drawings in my old calenders, tiny bags and boxes......lots of items that I know will be loved. It feels exciting to do this. For the cards for to keep them intelligent!!!

I am thankful for all of my friends, my family and the wonderful food we will consume today. I give thanks for all that I have done, learned and seen this year. Though my life has turned in a direction I would not have imagined a year ago....I am grateful to be alive. It is a beautiful sunny day....I shall go for a walk in the woods, breath in the fresh mountain air, raise my arms to the sun and say THANK YOU!!!

Here it is almost the big eating day!!! I've been a vegetarian for 30 or so that time I have never missed the turkey. Friends often make a tofurkey for me, though that would not be necesary......there is always so much more to eat!!! I most love, about this day, the feelings of family gathering, even if we aren't all gathering in the same place, and I love he sense of gratitude this day seems to bring up for all of my friends. I am grateful for all of you who contribute to my my the wonderful world we have here in the mountains.

Friday....the end of the week/beginning of the weekend

It snowed last night bringing down the last of the leaves. This weekend will entail sanding the garden, to continue to loosen up the soil, and compost all the beds!!! A joy!!! Whatever last herbs are still showing their faces will be harvested and dried. It is amazing what weather comfrey and lemon balm will grow in. A nice cup of tea.

And, we are loving our new addition to the farm/garden....Ms. GracieGray......a wise little silver kittie. She just couldn't be better.

Winter is on the way

The leaves have all fallen from the trees. Like the leaves.....letting go.....I have been letting go of HUGE amounts of things, people, and situations in my life. Another death.......a fellow who I had just hired to work as a rep for MoonMaid. Very sudden. Shocking. what was the meaning of this very special and deep connection.....someone even more enthusiastic about MoonMaid then I was. Wonderful and incredible. When he was jerked out of my life so fast......I had to ask.....what is the message?

Today.....I figured it out. I am supposed to be out selling MoonMaid while Megan and Andrea are holding down the kitchen and garden. So exhilarating to "get it!!!"
