Again, it looks like it should be cool, crisp weather outside…..but it’s still very humid and hot! Sad, sad, sad….one thing I loved about living in such places as North Carolina and Alabama was that the leaves would change colors when school started. I miss that here!
However, I did prepare another fall-ish breakfast!
I’ve always just put straight pumpkin in my oats, never trying actual pumpkin pie mix before. Wow, this stuff was YUMMY! Yeah, it had a bit of cane sugar in it (as well as lots of spices!), but was totally worth it. A lot of times I find regular pumpkin to have a funny taste when there’s no sweetener involved…..this, on the other hand, tasted like pure pumpkin pie in a can. Perfection! I mixed 1/4 cup of it in with my oat bran and topped it with blueberries and raw almond butter. Delicious!
I have a few freelance deadlines that I have to work on this morning, as well as running a some errands with my mom. We are donating a TON of books to my brother’s high school library so we have to head over there this morning and make a big drop off. I love seeing those kids sweet faces and saying hi to my brother’s teachers—it always puts a smile on my face.
So, I’ve had a few emails and comments asking about The Way (my Wednesday night bible study). Here’s the lowdown. We are using a book called “Prayer” by Sarah Arthur. Its totally easy to understand because its written for young adults. 🙂 Basically what we do is one person will volunteer to lead the study for the week and we will go through a chapter in the book. The leader will discuss the key elements of the chapter and we all will discuss points in it and how it is relevant to our own lives. We don’t really use the bible…it’s more of a discussion thing. For the final 30 minutes, we will go around in a circle and each say our “highs and lows” for the past two weeks and then we will close in prayer. Its a little different than past studies I have done because we don’t analyze parts of the bible or even have set questions. We might refer to the bible a couple times, but focus more on deep discussion of prayer in our own lives and how we can take our prayer life to the next level. If you have more questions, please email me and I’ll gladly share more!
Remember how I received the absolutely gorgeous cookbook, Clean Food, a few weeks ago?
