It’s Fall, Ya’ll! If this isn’t your season, my sincerest apologies. I’m a sweater-wearin’, chai-sippin’, all-things-pumpkin-eatin’ fool and my enthusiasm for the cooler weather knows no bounds. Fall is totally when I come alive. I’m so happy to wave goodbye to Summer and hear the crunch of Autumn leaves underfoot. We don’t get a lot of it here before Winter sets in, but boy, oh, boy! I’m gonna get outside with my camera and enjoy the frack out of it. I’ve enjoyed some other things this month, that I want to share with you. Curl up with a mug of your favorite drink and a warm blanket and read on!
I LOVE soup recipes when the weather cools down. This Quick Moroccan Soup recipe from Cook The Story is my favorite recent discovery. It has chicken in it, so with a simple substitution, it’s good to go for you lovely vegetarians and vegans. I followed the directions as written, but omitted the chicken and then later added in Quorn’s Chik’n Tenders, cooked those per their instructions and then added them like a garnish on top of the soup. They are the bomb.com, if you haven’t tried them. Taste and texture are on point and they are soy-free, which is huge if you’re a vegetarian with a thyroid condition. I found mine at Whole Foods, but I recently discovered that Neighborhood Market and Target has begun carrying Quorn products, so watch for bargains!
I’m chugging along in my aromatherapy classes and am ever the happy student. I don’t know that I’ll ever stop feeling grateful for this opportunity. I’ve been in love with this subject for so long and every new thing I learn fills me with more joy. Seriously, I’m so lucky.
I cannot wait to buy supplies to make this super-adorbs DIY bench! My bed is insanely tall, so as a short girl, having a place to sit to put on shoes that I don’t have to take a flying leap to climb on to is pretty fantastic. I’ve looked at several to buy, but never would have thought to make one myself. What do you think?
When I was sick back in 2011-2012, I discovered a free meditation app from The Silva Method and the Energy Booster meditation was the first one I ever did. As someone who was suffering from adrenal exhaustion on top of lung issues, this was invaluable for me. I never would have thought that in just over three years from the discovery I would be a certified teacher of meditation and would be starting to create my own recordings and programs. This one in particular is so near and dear to my heart. I’ll always be so grateful that I found it.
I want to hear how your September’s treated you. Anything extra special happen that you want to shout from the rooftops? Let’s share and celebrate!
Wishing You Total Well-Being,
