Pumpkins ~ Fall Around My Home


Winter Squashes & pumpkins grace this table scape.
It is the middle of October and I finally got the decorating bug.

 But in the mean time, I have been tying up herbs to dry and putting tomatoes on the window sills to ripen as our temperature dipped to freezing

Drying herbs is relatively easy and a wonderful smelling bonus to any room they are dried in.

I like to do the bulk of my drying in the kitchen, with little sprigs of mint throughout the house; bedrooms & bathrooms.

I started drying my herbs in 1996 when I moved to the Northeast United States. I love using my dried herbs through each following year and gathering again the succeeding fall. But this blog is about Pumpkins so, I have compiled some of the ideas we are using this season and hope you like what I have shared! Enjoy!

As for pumpkins!! I love Pumpkins! They cheer me up and give a brightness to the color theme around and in the house!
Pumpkins make great decorations.
We make pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread and just started a new recipe from the web for breakfast muffins! LOVE THESE!

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
