It's Pumpkin Time!

In October of 2008, I wrote a series called A Month of Pumpkins -- that's right, one pumpkin post a day for the entire month of October. Some were fun to write, others not so much. Some mornings I woke up excited about writing my pumpkin post, other days I wanted to scream if I even saw the "P" word. When the month ended, I was sorry to see it over. It was fun, it was interesting, and it was challenging. (I highly recommend you take on the writing of a month of _______. And if you do, send me the link so I can follow along and offer encouragement.) ...more

Sweet Pumpkin Treats

I'm still thinking about pumpkin pie, the ultimate sweet treat. I still haven't actually had any pumpkin pie... and I also haven't had the pumpkin bread that TW promised. (She's not doing a very good job of keeping me fed, someone ought to give her a stern talking to about that.) ...more

Join the White Pumpkin Fan Club

Friday night, I was reading my feeds and the little one was shoulder surfing. Dooce fed a post with video celebrating Coco's first birthday, so I clicked it. Liz oooohed and ahhhhed over Coco and I realized she had no idea that Dooce has a much better dog than Coco... Chuck is far superior! So I went to Dooce, clicked the Daily Chuck and we surfed photos. It was troubling because the kid was still enthralled by Coco. I needed Former Congressman Chuck from the old days so I dug deeper into the archives and started finding the photos I knew would win her over to the Chuck side. ...more

A pumpkin round up

Oops. I thought I was going to have plenty of time to write a completely from scratch post about pumpkins. Hah. When I planned the Month of Pumpkins I apparently forgot that this was our 13 year old's birthday weekend. ...more

Pumpkins are romantic, seriously...

Nothing says "I love you" like a pumpkin. What? Why are you looking at me that way? Surely you've experienced this... I'm not talking about the pumpkin as an aphrodisiac, though I could be. ...more

Shiny Happy Pumpkins

After a day like today, I could use some "shiny! shiny!", how about you? I'm not sure how my the fabulous Deb Roby knew I'd be needing some shiny pumpkins but she did and she sent me that cool link. We've got a pumpkin sitting on the counter just begging me to turn it shiny like this one. Unfortunately, the local craft store does not deliver so no shiny pumpkin decorating will be happening any time soon. ...more
