Its About That Time

I love living in farm country.  I picked up some squash at a local roadside market.  Often dropping in to the market dictates what I make for supper.  Tonight it will include acorn squash soup.  Yum!  Roasting the squash is key.

***you can swap out the butter for veg.oil and add veg.stock instead of Chicken.

Product Safety App

Up until I came across the app Think Dirty, this was my favourite lipstick.  Then upon scanning the bar code with the app, I found that the majority of its ingredients are carcinogens or toxic to some degree.  The app is easy to use and well worth the minute or two to find out the safety of cosmetics, lotions, shampoos etc.  Don’t forget that our skin is the largest organ, what we put on it counts.

Live with what you love

One of the benefits of having little discretionary money when I moved away from home, is that it taught me to be circumspect with purchases.  It taught patience and delayed gratification.  Mostly for me however, it meant that because I had so little money to spend, I was very very particular about what I bought.


I still have a one hundred year old antique brass frame and a water pitcher of the same era that were my first purchases at an antique store 30 years ago.  I have only used the frame for a picture of my husband and I, and the white water pitcher is generally used for wild flowers,


All this is to say, is that it is very rewarding to take your time when feathering your nest, especially if what you bring in has tugged at your heart in one way or another.
