The Harvest...





thats what has been happening here
lots of harvesting
drying
pureeing
freezing
baking & cooking
*
herb & tea potions
being brought together
for cooking & medicinal purposes
 *
I love this time of year
so much
boots
gloves
sweaters
toques

a time of soup and comfort foods....


as many changes that are happening outside
there is equally the amount of changes happening
inside of me
some of what is happening
I understand
some other things I don't
lately
I have felt the need to cocoon
the desire to go deep within
something is stirring on the horizon
I am not sure what
I do know it will be amazing
and I want to get there
so badly
and yet
I feel held back
like there are things that need to be done
before I get there
things need to be 
dried
pureed
frozen
and stored away
for when I need them
I feel pulled in all directions
and yet I stand in one place
feet planted firmly
with strong roots that go deep 
I want to run the race
but I cannot leave the gate.
and yet
I am happy
I am content
I am in the knowing
I am filled with love and joy
I am blessed

Love and Light my lovelies

  2. It's all about patience. I have felt the pull inward, as well. Such a lovely time of year to sit back and reflect and just take it easy. Love that you are harvesting and creating!! xoxo

  3. I think autumn has a way of doing that. The coziness of the thought of hibernation, the busy-ness of our days to "get it all done".
    Cocooning, yet something is stirring, with anticipation for something unknown.
    Whatever it is, it's gonna be exactly what you need.
    Happy harvesting curly top! x

  5. Beautiful pictures Cat ! Lovely greens ! I love green and fresh produce...Although I cannot identify all of these leaves but I love herbs and at home I have a collection of few bottled dry herbs. Our herbs are different ...but I like photographing them and use them in cooking often.
    I loved these lines that you have written"
    "some of what is happening
    I understand
    some other things I don't
    lately"
    -maybe, that "I don't know " part is the mystery and key to something valuable.
    take care,
    S
