The universe is constantly talking to youPosted: September 28, 2011
We are having a breathtakingly beautiful autumn day here in the Bogs. Mostly sunny, breezy, with an almost perfect temperature of 67 degrees. The days have not turned crisp yet, but they are beginning to crackle with energy.
Remember the mushroom from yesterday’s post? If your memory is like mine, you might want to go have a look. We’ll wait for you.
It has opened up, like an umbrella. You’d think I’d never seen such a thing before, and you would be correct in that assumption.
The goldenrod is starting to fade, losing its golden glow. The dragonflies and preying mantises seem to have disappeared. The monarchs and honeybees are visiting the flowers in the meadows, filling up for the migration or the winter to come.
The title for today’s post is courtesy of the search engine terms that bring people to my blog. I find them useful when I’m unable to think up a title of my own.
I recently purchased the book Love Soup: 160 All-New Vegetarian Recipes from the Author of The Vegetarian Epicure. Autumn is my favorite time of the year to make soups. Well, okay, I love them any time of year. From the hearty,comforting soups of winter to the light, cooling cold soups of summer, bring on the soup.
Today I am going to make Zucchini and Potato Soup. We still have a lot of zucchini and yellow squash from the last box of goodies we received from our CSA. This will help deplete the surplus population (thank you, Charles Dickens). I think we’ll have a salad with that. The lettuces in the fridge could use a bit of thinning, too.
Day 3. Yoga practice today was
brutal challenging. I am that out of shape. I was kind to myself. I pushed, but not too forcefully. By the end of the practice I felt energized, expansive, and very happy to have finished.
I find it funny that I usually go for months without eating meat of any kind and now that I’ve decided to be a pescetarian for year, I’m suddenly craving meat. The mind is a fickle place.
The rain predicted for today hasn’t shown up yet. The low pressure system is taking its time. I took advantage of our good fortune by hanging the laundry outside on the line to dry. The wind, the dry air, and the sunshine are more efficient than my dryer. They are a free source of energy, too. Can’t beat that.
Time for me to go back outside, take the laundry off the clothesline, and enjoy what’s left of this beautiful day. Thank you for stopping by and joining me on my walk. 🙂
