Yesterday I told you all about my plans to blog a month of pumpkins but what I didn't tell you is that I've pre-written a good number of posts in order to fulfill my obligation to the great pumpkin.
I pre-wrote them knowing I'd probably tweak, change and completely throw out a few. I pre-wrote them and pre-scheduled them knowing full well I'd toss out my calendar at some point and just plain wing it. That's how I roll.
What I didn't expect was for the first pre-written post to get a complete re-write but that's what's happening today. You see, something really bad happened today and it is completely related to pumpkin time.
I am not one of those people.
Today. I. Turned. On. The. Heat. And, I am oh so not happy about it. In fact, I'm really annoyed by it particularly since I'm still cold. There's nothing I hate more than spending money unless it is spending money to heat the house in October and STILL BEING COLD.
I do not like fall. (No cracks about winter, please. I don't think I can handle that right now.)
I'm thinking fondly of days gone by... days when I lived in tropical countries where pumpkins where shipped by boat to my nearest military commissary. My heart warms when I remember that the only chill in the air during pumpkin painting and carving and cooking came from the AC vent. That photo yesterday that I posted of Michelle, wearing next to nothing while carving the pumpkin on the front porch... ah those were the days.
Boo fall! Boo fall in Illinois! I'm a warm weather pumpkin lover.
