Thursday Koffee Klatch
 
    
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
 
Daily Question:
 
     My daughters love this time of year. I think we all do. We wake up with hot air balloons going over head through out Fall. Anywhere from 20-50. Until the 2 weeks of the International Balloon Fiesta. Then it is 300 - 500 each day. Just put on a warm robe and slippers and have early morning coffee. Watch the balloons float down the city and across the river. Which brings me to todays Koffee Klatch.
 
Does your town have a Fall event that is held each year? What is it? Or are you the kind of person who loves the transition into Fall more with pumpkins, turning leaves and small fires in the early morning? Tell us about Fall season where you live.

And sorry I could not travel both

Well I live in NYC , so theres every type of festival imaginable , but what I do like most about this time of year is the comfortable temperature . Its wonderful for sleeping and going out too , nice and cool in the 60s although its been warm the last 2 days its just nice . I'm going to go to Central park and maybe the Museum of Natural History this weekend or maybe the next , its so nice in manhattan , lots of stuff to see and do !!! Mikel

Fall is my favorite. Here in Pennsylvania, we have the Apple Harvest Festival in Arendtsville. We have tried to go every year, but have not always been successful. I love to bake and cook, so now for me is the time for warm apple pie, apple dumplings, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, apple cakes and pumpkin pudding. I can my own food also, so here comes the apple pie filling, canned pumpkin, and making my own tomato sauces and soups to can for the winter. Also, I love to get out the cast iron fire pit we have and cook things over the fire or use our smoker. The piles of crunchy leaves, crisp breeze during the day and the clouds of your breath in the morning are all reminders of the joys of fall for me.
 
Maybe we will make it to the festival this year. I can taste the pumpkin funnel cake and just pressed apple cider!
 
I hope everyone has a good day with low pain!

Mindy I would love some of those pumpkin recipe if you don't mind. The muffins and puddings and cakes sounds so wonderful!!

I love fall, esp. this year I have not been able to go out in thhose hot and humid temperatures, so this is a nice weather change.
I love the changing of the leaves. What a beautiful site. We may be going camping for our canadian thanksgiving which is Oct. 11 and I know it would be so beautiful up there at the lake. I pray my hubby can get the time off from work. When the kids were smallI would decorate the big living room window big time and I would decorate outside too. They are older now so I don't do that part. Today I want to go buy some potted mums to put on the front step and I'll buy a couple pumpkins to decorate there too.
I loved raking the leaves into a big pile for the boys to jump into. I would even get leaves from the neighbours' yards to add to the pile. Oh how things change when the kids grow up.

Suzane,
I would love to share the recipes. Would you prefer an email or post? Which ones would you like? I have many!

I agree with you how things change. When the boys were young, they would rake leaves with me just to jump in them, and rake then neighbors for the same reason. Now, I have to offer a treat to get them to rake, and am jumping in them all by myself which looks crazy! We still hang decorations, carve pumpkins and toast the seeds for a snack! The mums sound like a wonderful idea too, and I can have them planted each year.

I live in rural New England, so we have beautiful falls. We get many tourists this time of year that come to look at the leaves (mostly New Yorkers & other city folk). We can them "leaf peepers." You can always spot someone from out of the area, because they drive reeeeeeally slow & can be seen pointing at things out the car window.

The local apples and apple cider this time of year are amazing. There is nothing like a fresh, orchard picked apple.

I love fall. The smell of fall, the feel of fall, all of it. I can't imagine living anywhere else this time of year.
