Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Mulling it Over

Ever heard the expression 'mulling it over'? Well, it means to think deeply about something. In other words, when you mull something over you ponder or seriously consider it. Well, let's mull over apples! Think back to any one or all of the previous apple celebrations. For this next celebration, take a few thoughtful moments focusing on the apple not being eaten but incorporated within a beverage.

September 30 is...

It's fall. Cooler temperatures are on the way if not having already arrived at your doorstep. That, of course, depends on the area of the country in which you live. Either way hot beverages are on their way in! Click the image above for the first recipe of the day.

Mulled cider is a hot or warm drink, typically made from apple juice or cider, and is most popular during autumn and winter. It is sometimes called wassail, or wassail punch. However, typically wassail would be made with ale or beer. Modern, child-friendly versions are more likely to be made with either apple or cranberry juice, or a combination of juices.
