GIVE A FIG

To aid the celebration’s overindulgence of snow and damp, sugar and fat, serve a cornucopia of felicitous fiber and its vitamin rush— whirligig of walnuts and crisp cranberries, Honeycrisp apples and wild red strawberries, spring mix sprinkled with balsamic and fig. Give a fig* about your friendships and figure. Strap on boots, tread through snow and ice. Make nice with muscles and joints, your neighbors. Share the bounty of your colorful heritage. Stay in shipshape form as you celebrate. 9/16/2021 *Care about

I ate only two figs this year. Too sweet for my diabetes. Oh well as we say in Malta. You either get a heavy medal or worse a cross. Hugs.
