Pumpkins aren’t just for carving into jack o’ lanterns and pies. They make velvety smoothies for any time of the day. This is a recipe from Prevention Magazine. I also made the smoothie recipe with non fat yogurt which gave it a tangy taste.
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Place all ingredients in a blender. Process until well combined and smooth.

I went to the new Colorado Springs Trader Joe’s grocery store to buy Pumpkin Spice Coffee, 100% Brazil Cerrado Arabica beans ground together with natural spices like orange peel, cinnamon, allspice, and pumpkin spice oil. I also wanted their Pumpkin Spice Chai with pumpkin pie spices and real pumpkin. However, these are limited items for October and they had already sold out.
The knowledgeable and friendly staff at Trader Joe’s found a very tasty substitute for me called Spice Rooibos tea flavored with natural spices and pumpkin flavor!
I was happy to find sachet bags in the tea tin. Tea brewed with sachet bags will taste richer than tea brewed in tea bags. Why? Sachet bags contain bigger cuts of tea leaves than tea bags.

I thought Aro should have her own Kup Kap so I sent the Kolorful Insects to her.
I received the following note from Aro’s Mom:
“Aro says: ‘Thank you for my Cuppa Cap and she’s a nice lady for giving me my Cuppa Cap!’ We are big tea party gals and we both love using our Kaps. Thanks so much for thinking of Aro!”
Aro’s Dad shared, “And Aro ADORES her Kup Kap. She uses it for everything and she slept with it the first couple of days!”

One of our customers emailed a photo of her three year old daughter with the following comments:
“It was Aro’s first time using the Kup Kap. She saw me using it with my tea and wanted some. I made her some vanilla rooibos tea in her favorite panda cup. Then she asked for the Kap.”
Thank you for sharing this wonderful photo!

It’s always an interesting drive home from Fraser Valley over the mountain on US40. This time we saw clouds lightly floating below the Rocky Mountain tops.
For dinner, we ate at the Dairy King in Empire, Colorado, covering 192 acres with a population of 280. It’s a favorite stopping place before driving over the mountain or heading home.
The Dairy King is small but has a friendly staff who serve up tasty food and ice-cream. We ate inside rather than the patio because the temperatures were still high.
Perry enjoyed his juicy burger cooked to order – medium rare with all the fixings!
We really do carry cup sleeves with us every where we travel!
Every time we stop at the Dairy King in Empire, I look at the hand-made pottery on the long shelf. I was looking for a ceramic piece to put bananas in. I was thrilled to see this beautiful jar thrown by a ninety year old man!

What did I do while Perry worked on the sign? I picked up my water bottle off the broken down picnic table, attached it to my camera bag, and began shooting wild flowers throughout our property. I’ve done this many times but I always find new flowers and plants to photograph.
A busy bee buzzing on the bloom!
Succulent raspberries fresh on the vine.
Blue flowers to chase away the blues.
Even delicate flowers will grow on a rugged mountain.

We drove over 13 switchbacks into the Fraser Valley in Colorado and wound our way up to the top of one of the Rocky Mountains to check on the 4.58 acres of land we own. After arriving, we decided it would be a good idea to put up an address sign.
Perry bought the supplies at Ace Hardware in Fraser. He borrowed a shovel from one of the neighbors.
Dehydration can cause serious health problems in the mountains. Perry put his drink container on a nearby tree stump and began digging a hole for the long metal stake.
With the pole sturdy in the ground, Perry screwed on the address for our beautiful acres.
