A Pumpkin Spicy Weekly Link Round-Up


I have a weakness for pumpkin spice that dates back to the pumpkin pies my grandmother made (from scratch, naturally). There's something about the taste and smell that makes my head and my heart happy. 

I hope all you who celebrate Thanksgiving are having the type of holiday weekend that makes your heads and hearts happy. Denis and I had a quiet day yesterday, enjoying our turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie, followed by watching some favorite movies. 

Last week, the two of us got our Covid and RSV vaccines and did a little shopping around Target. It had been so long since I'd been in the store that I couldn't believe how different it looked after all the remodeling that was done. Monday, we had new insulation put in the attic. It will be interesting to see how much difference it makes to our heating and cooling bills.

I am so thankful for so many things in my life. First and foremost, the people in it. Not just Denis and other family members and friends, but others-- like my faithful blog readers and the nurses I see each week when I go to my doctor's appointment. Fortunately, none of them read my blog (that I'm aware of), so there should be no repercussions over this sneaky photo I took while they were busy rewrapping my leg.
Busy, busy, busy!

I'm also thankful for material things: the roof over my head, clean clothes to wear, books, and something almost as good as getting a box of books in the mail...

It's time for some pumpkin spice tea to go along with a piece of pumpkin pie and the good book I'm reading. Thank you-- all of you-- for spending time with me. You're the best.

Enjoy the links!

    1. I'm glad, Mystica. And I do like seeing you being able to comment on others' blog posts again. :-)

  2. One of the best things about this time of year for me is the prevalence of pumpkin spice which I love! And as one who lives with a tortoiseshell cat who rules our house and especially her brother, I can attest to "tortitude."

  3. So many things to be grateful for! We had a very quiet Thanksgiving, too. :D

  4. I think we sometimes forget how many people in the world don't have the simple things (like food, a roof over their heads, etc.) that so many of us take for granted. Fortunately, I seem to have been raised knowing that, no matter how bad things can get in my life, they can always be worse-- and I should always appreciate what I have.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
