in the last days of summer

there are these things:

golden light.  wind chime tinkles.

grapes and figs and the last of the summer berries.

windows wide open.

a confetti of pansies.

prayer wheel crafting in progress.

acorn gathering.

pumpkin smoothies*.

moments that whisper, come on in beautiful.

*for the pumpkin smoothie

blend together:

  • one ripe frozen banana
  • one-half can organic pumpkin
  • one single serving container of organic greek yogurt (plain)
  • two spoons chia seeds, plus more for garnish
  • two spoons of chopped pumpkin seeds, plus more for garnish
  • one spoon sweetener of your choice (i've been trying out coconut palm sugar, tastes good and is way lower on the glycemic index than sugar, but the price is high)
  • almond or coconut milk to liquefy to your liking
  • any combination of autumn spices:  cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, etc.

happy equinox.  here's to bright beginnings.
