Well, don’t ever let it be said that little things don’t mean a lot. I’ve been waiting (not so patiently) for better weather, so I can enjoy my coffee on the beautiful, peaceful porch. It’s one of my most favorite things to do while gazing at our ever-blooming gardens, and it looks like the weather will cooperate at least in the next few days. Hallelujah! I hope you all have little things of joy to look forward to, if only for a moment in time.
While thinking of things to treat yourself kindly, here’s a suggestion: If you haven’t already seen the announcements on FaceBook, “A Raisin In The Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry (adapted from a poem by Langston Hughes called Harlem, directed by Carla Childs, is showing at Old Academy Players in East Falls (and Isaiah is part of the cast.) It debuted Sept. 14th and will run through Sept. 30th. Check their website (www.oldacademyplayers.org) for dates and times of all performances. Hope to see you there!
About food: As we go back into the routine of “regular” life this Fall, think about routinely eating more healthy. The best way to do that, as I keep hearing on so many email messages from health-related sites, let’s think about eating grass-fed meats and dairy products. The family farms we buy from are pasturing their birds and animals on long-time organic (no pesticides ever) fields, and they treat their live stock humanely from birth to local, certified butcher. They need our support to survive against the industrial (factory) farms. (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/eating-animals-trailer-natalie-portmans-documentary-seeks-new-future-meat-industry-1108016) Our farmers are already (and have been) “doing the right thing!”

Remember, buying from Family Farms that feed and pasture their animals properly and treat them humanely is not only better food for the health of you and your family, it’s also supporting those farms to help them flourish. It also sends a BIG message to the factory farm industry, that they don’t rule over our health and we won’t support their practices. IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO! SPREAD THE WORD!!! Support Family Farms!!!
