Finish Up the Last Harvest and October 2017 Check in

This is the time we pagan celebrate our last pagan holiday. I figure holiday would be more comfort term for some us you.
If you take a minute and look at a calendar, we're mid point between fall (Sept 23) and the winter solstice (Dec 21) and after that the days will slow creep to longer days.
We celebrate or remember those who on the other side. This is time we believe that those who have past my contact us in some way.
I bet most of us have some memories of family or friends who pass way. One way pagan does celebrate is that when they set down for the fest they will set an ask plate and place food on it. In hope that those who on the other side of Vail will show up.
Now if no ghost or spirit join us for the feast. We will take the food and make an offer to the god/des.
No the pagan to don't chop off chicken heads, and turn people into frog and such.
Believe me most of us have plenty of power to control what comes into our life. If there some nasty element hanging around. It best to ask it to leave nicely. None of wants to be talking rude. Usual that works but if it doesn't then you may have to be more firm.
We need to have bounds and sometime we need to set bounds with those spirits who we don't want to hang around.
Last thing I like to mention it ending of our pagan year and new starts for us November 1st.

Editor note...I meant to post this Oct 31st and I've been busy, with work and haven't had a chance.

So now we're into the second day of the month. Today this morning I had a mammogram. Went to see my son Bart and his wife Molly there doing good. And it always good to see Granddaughter Claudia.
When Murphy and walk into there home. Bart was what we called golden milk and it smell so good and had to have a taste, and it was good as it smell.
1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of ginger
Maple syrup to taste
heart over medium heat

As you can see we got a little bit of snow. For snow to stick at this time is a little rare. We do have snow but usual it gone as quick as it comes. Usual it doesn't stick until mid November.
One of our biggest expensive this month was tire for my car, which ran us $700.

Since I spent $700 on tires I bought Daisy a new stuff toy, clueless who it is. But she likes to chase it and shake it all about.

Then our next biggest cost would be food. We spend right around $278 on food this month.
Warmest day was the 6th and 7th and it got up to 66 (18)
Average high for the month was 57 (13)
Coldest days where the 3rd, 8th, 24th and 27, at 31 (-0.5)
Average low for the month was 35 (1.6)
Been getting some walking in and I average 4.75 miles (7644 meters) in a day.

One thing I like to do is MY BLUE MIX I call it my blog therapist. Although I don't use every post but I try to use a variety of post though out the month.

You are shrewd and skeptical.
You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. You are independent: you have a strong desire to have time to yourself. And you are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them.
Your choices are driven by a desire for discovery.
You are relatively unconcerned with both achieving success and tradition. You make decisions with little regard for how they show off your talents. And you care more about making your own path than following what others have done.
Coffee is on


  1. I hope your mammogram is a good one.
    Snow, Brrr! Looks pretty at first though.

  2. Thank you for sharing your pagan holiday customs. But you can keep the snow ...

  3. It wears 94 here in North TX yesterday. Record breaker.

  4. A high of 78 is predicted today for Laurel (suburb of Washington, DC). Enough with the summery weather already! A few weeks ago, it was near freezing. Piled on a couple extra blankets. Last night, kicked them off. Please come, Autumn.
    Oh, yeah, and the leaves are still mostly on the trees.

  5. being at the opposite end of your world, the Southern Hemisphere & in a part of the country where snow never falls (although there has been short sightings of such stuff) we are expecting summer to arrive real soon...
