Pumpkin Everything

Well well it's been a while hasn't it. The last year of my life has been nothing short of tumultuous, mind-blowing, scary and some of the happiest moments in my life. There's a major blog post coming soon about all of that--- BUT, today's post is about pumpkin.. it's September 27th which means it's Autumn but for the past week my fine city of Toronto has experienced the hottest weather we've had all summer. Better late than never, am I right???

Last week I came down with a sinus cold that walloped me for two days. I am a bit of a bragger when it comes to how little I get sick so I guess that was the universes way of knocking me down a peg or two😏. Anyhoo--I was craving pumpkin.. and in what was sure to be the whiniest voice ever I asked my wonderful man if he would make muffins. Pumpkin muffins🎃  Which he did. How lucky am I?

Wednesdays have become somewhat of a ME day. My man volunteers and I only have one class to teach and work later in the afternoon leaving my morning for me. Meditation, selfpractice and cooking is generally what I get up to. Today, with left over pumpkin I decided to make stuff. Granola for one but the recipe I'm sharing is for this beautiful bowl of pumpkin oats...  

Happy Hump day everyone.
