I Have a Confession to Make...

Remember how I said I was avoiding pie on turkey day because I'm watching my calories?

Yeah.

Well, I sort of lied.

That's not why I won't be eating my normal share of yummy pumpkin goodness this year.

No.

The honest-to-goodness reason?

I found out where pumpkin pie really comes from.

And because I love you all, I thought I'd let you in on the secret...



You're skipping it this year, too, aren't you? Yup. I don't blame you one bit.

I knew that's where it came from, but if you put enough whipped cream on it, you'll hardly even notice.

Trust me.

Heh.

Diane, I've just got caught up with you since the last time I dropped by - So sorry... And I'd love to have a link to your GoGirlsGo article, if that's okay, and to your Facebook account, if you'd like?

I loved your poignant writing on the Scottish/David piece... And Ryan and her smeary spectacle lenses - I am wishing that you have good fortune in your lives, enough to enable you to purchase toothpaste... Mind you, the Georgians believed in the power of bark twigs for cleaning teeth - You live near some woods, right?! So, no excuse!

Love to you my darling disappearing (I wish I could embrace some of your energies to lose weight - You are doing soooo well!) friend xxooxx

haha, for a minute I thought that you were going to say that you were pregnant and pumpkin pie is bad for babies.... but I guess that's what happens when I'm up at 130 in the morning blogging. :-D

Lol! Well you learn something new every day, might turn me off pumpkin pie forever. :( ♡

BTW I love your quote of the week, and how true it is.

Have a great week Diane dear. ♡
