I have not been blogging much lately--mainly posting things on my recipe blog. Recently we have switched to a mostly vegetarian diet without much oil, dairy, or meats. We have been eating whole grains (including rice), beans, vegetables and fruit. The result is a blessed 50 point drop in my Cholesterol levels for which I am so happy. Plus I am down to my ideal weight!! YES!
I love this time of the year and have been enjoying the warmth of flannel sheets and cozy fires! Camellias are in bloom and the orange and reds of the trees are refreshing. The smells of pumpkin pie and apple butter just add to the warmth. The camaraderie of Fall festivals have been another source of small town thankfulness.
Fall cleaning has kept me very busy with many trips to the Good Will store and to the garbage!! I feel so much better after having decluttered so many of my closets and bookshelves!!! I can't believe all the "stuff" I was hanging on to.
Now to escape with a cup of cinnamon tea and a good book.
