{ pick my own pumpkin. carve. light. }

20 Oct
Reading days mark the middle of the semester.  Two days with no classes in which to complete midterms and catch up on reading.  Have I done either of these between yesterday or today?  Nope.  But I did manage to check one more thing off my fall to-do list!

Two friends and I decided, instead of that homework-thing, to eat soup, carve pumpkins, and roast seeds.  I picked my own pumpkin … from the large cardboard box at Cub.  We carved.  We lit.  We had a lot of fun getting our hands goopy and gross and scooping seeds.  We made trail mix from the roasted seeds and ate pumpkin cheesecake pots.  A good time was had by all. 

Intended to be a silly/scary picture, it really just became an open mouth picture …

My pumpkin has a heart on its sleeve … er, head?
{ get lost in a corn maze }
{ bake a pie }
{ prepare a pot of chili, beer bread, invite friends over to enjoy }
{ step on the crunchy leaves }
{ sew a baby quilt }
{ homemade pizza on the pizza stone }
{ attend a wine tasting }
{ make and share these }
{ 10k training – the hiatus is over – it’s back on }
{ find a fall festival }
{ cabin weekend. a hike to the fire tower }
{ scarves.  puffy vests.  boots. }
{ read a for-fun book }
{ cheer on the twins from target field }
{ take a stroll around a lake } 
{ pick my own pumpkin.  carve.  light. }
