Week 8: Too much of a good thing?

Happy Fall! Fall is one of my favorite seasons even though I do appreciate every season for what each has to offer. The cooler temperatures of fall send us back outside after the heat of the summer. One harbinger of fall is the appearance of pumpkins and pumpkin spice. I do enjoy the flavor combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves that is the foundation of the true pumpkin spice. However, companies have extended the application of pumpkin spice into more than the original baked goods of pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie. You can find it in cereal, pop tarts, candy, coffee creamers, flavored coffee, Twinkies, candles, soap, and air fresheners. More unusual products out this year include pet food, hard seltzer, scented masks, and ramen. At least we do not have the return of pumpkin spice Spam this year. Whether you are a pumpkin spice lover or hater, we can all agree that sometimes too

much of a good thing is just too much.


However you choose to enjoy this fall season, with or without pumpkin spice, enjoy it with your family. Get outside and do things. Do not let these days and the opportunities they present slip past without taking advantage of them. Go make some memories together!


God’s Blessings,

Delaine Schiestel
