Today is Remembrance Sunday, 2 minute silence and remembering all those died in War. The Sunday nearest to November 11th. Two minutes silence is part of our national calendar  When you wear a poppy it should be able to remind us to pray for someone who has died in the war.

Autumn season is here ( some call it Hygge). One of my favourite and colourful season of the year. Though around look bit sad and dull, as the days grew colder and darker. I would invite  to look into autumn through a different eye, vibrant season of myriad colours of orange, yellow hues with accenting colours. Looking for pumpkin carving, All saints day, soon be praying for souls....

Ww enjoy going out as a family during this fall season and my favourite is picking different leaves of maple, oak etc..

Friday 29 September 2023


Today as a special day at home. It is Michaelmas feast and I love St Michael's day. 

Mich was gifted on his feast day with his favourites. As today 29th September celebrates the feast of Archangels - Michael  Rafel and Gabriel..

You nay know that St Michael from revelation, where we read about him throwing Satan out of heaven and leading God's war against evil..the prayer of Archangel is very powerful, I heard people say how strong it is the power of St Michael's prayer ..

Our day today:

 Doing little activities on archangels...though my youngest ones are bit unwell. After reading Raphel - name means 'God heals' we thought to ask healing from God 

Here is s list of things to do on the day-

Traditionally the day has lots and lots of significance in Britain. ...the time of giving thanks after harvest. Usually it used to be the time of giving rents  and payments.

You will see lot of purple daisies around  (asteracea)and can bring to decorate table.

Food obviously has got important role, tradition to eat goose and roast carrots, due to the lack of it, people go for chicken. ....carrots are traditional 

You can make things with black berries- crumbles,  pies or snacks...we had blackberries to serve... 

       Archangels guard us
