A Quick Reflection

As I compose this write, I'm a bit stuffy with a cold that has been going around. And yes in the other lands of media you did see me at a football game yesterday. Nonetheless today is going to be a humble day of cleaning, reflection and goal setting. You see this past year has been pretty good with getting the the lay of the land and new state. Last January  we moved into our new house and set up the basics of the homestead. Jobs were attained, everyday living happened. I did fall into bad habits as well and need to get back on track. Sobriety a few days short of 5 years was ruined at the end of last December and I have been drinking since, that has got to change. Bad food consumption and lack of exercise has made me unwell in my mind, body, and spirit. I'm turning 39 in 2 days and want to start the journey back to wellness today. Let's set intentions tonight and be diligent with wishes that serve us well. Salud to the New Year! Brightest Blessings to you all.

Yule At Celestial Pines

Merry Solstice/ Yule salutations to all who visit my cyber home. The door is wide open and I invite you in to cozy up and enjoy the tidings of the season in my hearth and on the homestead. Today will celebrated by a sacred cleansing of the home, time spent with nature, and  family togetherness at night. Ohh and tonight is also the great gingerbread house throw down! Before winter break fully commences I want to share some of our holiday home.

Que Pasa Calabaza

Pumpkins in December? Yes, I finally got around to taking them off of the porch and into the kitchen. In October for Halloween I purchased these table top pumpkins for $2.98 each at H.E.B. To the tune of Jazzy Christmas tunes playing in the background I cut these orange beauties in half. These pumpkins are so full of flesh and had three seeds sprouting already. I promptly put the sprouts into  soil pots to see what develops later. The rest of the seeds I coated in coconut oil, sprinkled with cinnamon and a bit of sugar to roast with the pumpkin halves.

I recently purchased a glass pie dish, in which I can make my own crust instead of buying graham cracker ones. I made an almond flour crust from WholesomeYum's recipe, and the Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe I used can be found at All Recipes.Com. We will  enjoy this dessert after {L}'s Winter Band concert tonight and before we hang up our stockings!

The Pups

On 10/10 our girl Gypsy gave birth to a litter of eight puppies. Unfortunately only three survived. The time has come to give them their forever homes, bittersweet. These pups definitely get their coat from their dad , whom I suspect is the dog across the street๐Ÿ˜. It has been a pleasure for the most part being their pack leader Grand Dogmother.

Say hello to Lulu Bear, Mancha, and Guero.
