Do any of you out there in blog land have an absence of canned pumpkin in your stores? I have not been able to get any since January. I keep checking and there is none. I went again today and there is still NONE. (I called Libby's about 2 months ago to ask about this and they said they had a bad crop last year.) I will check some more stores later this week, but it is very frustrating and I don't want to do it from scratch with a real pumpkin!!
Let me know if you all are having the same problem!
PS. I finally found some in the next town....but MSNBC said all stores should have some soon and that the shortage is over.

See this jar? See what is in this jar? These did me in.....well, these and a big bag of plain M&M's!! I just let loose and pigged out! My excuse is that they do have some fallish colors, don't they? I have been avoiding chocolate for a while.....well, at least in the form of candy. But I gave in to a craving.....oh did I GIVE IN!!! I hate to admit it , but I feel content.

He says that one of the things we should do after we have spent time meditating is to gather a little bouquet or garland of devotion. This is how he states it:
"One who has been walking in a beautiful garden does not depart willingly without gathering a few flowers to smell during the remainder of the day. In the same way we should, when our soul has been entertaining itself by meditating on some mystery, select one, two, or three of those points in which we have found most relish, and which are most proper for our advancement [spiritually], to think frequently on them, and 'smell' them , as it were spiritually, during the course of the day. This is to be done in the place in which we have been meditating, either remaining there in silence, or walking by ourselves for some time after."
This is a helpful picture for me---a spirtual bouquet! Yup....I like this idea.

My son is moving back from Seattle to the Charleston, SC area.....but while he awaits to move into his apartment, he may spend time in a spooooooky old Charleston house.
It has these windows as pictured above, that change into doorways---they slide upwords.
It has old parkay (sp?) floors, with left over Christmas decorations. There are creaky scary sounds in the night....and things that have been seen that are weird.
Hopefully he will not have any further spooky stories to tell.
and....he will leave in one piece when his furniture arives in a week so he can more into a less scary abode.

Lately, there has been a lot in the news about the resurgence of bedbugs. I happened to be talking to our pest control guy who comes every other month to spray around the house. We live in the South were there are cock roaches, etc just crusing around out in the yards, and streets, and one has to be careful about having them come inside!
But I asked him about bedbugs since I have been hearing about it in the national and local news. They are making some kind of big comeback! He says they have treated about 20 homes in the past month alone. Sometimes it is so bad owners have to throw out furniture and bedding.
They were saying in the national news that you can even pick them up at movie theaters! Yikes!
Anyways there is a link to an article below to help you prevent picking them up at motels, hotels, etc..... It tells you some things to look for and to do:
