pumpkin muffin

Wow!  It’s October! And Fall really feels like it is here today with our first Snow!  It is time to come inside and prepare our homes and our kitchens to be indoors!  I baked Pumpkin Muffins this morning!   Somehow that was hard for me to do an “ordinary” fall activity.  Maybe you are like me and are feeling tired and stressed.  This past September, here in Northern Colorado has been very stressful.  To all of us who have been so impacted by the floods it feels very much like we are racing against winter to build or build up our Safe Place – called HOME.

I hope that however the flooding has impacted you and your family, you can take time this October to have a “ordinary” FALL moment.  Maybe that’s a trip to the Pumpkin Farm, time in the kitchen canning your fresh garden produce or decorating your mantle with some fall garland.  “Ordinary” is reassuring and makes us safe in our very crazy world.

Best of all is that when we take our “ordinary” moments and choose to share them with others they can become extraordinary.  Spend time this October with a friend, share in the joy of a child choosing a Halloween costume, carve a pumpkin, and taste the flavors of banana bread.

Share with me your “extra” ordinary fall moments!

HAPPY Fall Y’all!
