The Big Squash


Tonight was the time for the Big Squash I decided.  Wielding a hefty knife (did you know that wield and weld are not pronounced the same?  I only learned that recently.) , I began to cut.  Oh, boy, is this knife going to get stuck? I wondered.  When I get old, I may not be able to do this anymore.  I was reminded of having my first baby.  I had been told so much about how awful it would be, my husband had been sent home because it was way too soon for the baby to be born, but in the middle of night, I was thinking if this is going to get two or three times worse, I don’t know if I can handle that.  It turned out the baby was soon born, I had been through “the worst” without realizing it.


So…… am I maybe already old?

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

      It is a potiron rouge d’estampe. Pumpkins tend to be more fibrous than these are. We use them in savory and/or sweet recipes. Mostly soup this time.
