Yes ladies and gentlemen, we have pumpkins. That's right, pumpkins. Plural form. Not one, but two. Two twenty pound beauties. Finally. I'm photographing them for posterity and silently praying they don't get stolen off the front porch.

Cloudy with a Chance of Magic

Today we awoke to an overcast sky and a fine mist of rain falling. It was the perfect weather for sleeping in, but the alarm clock beckoned. I let the Baby Girl carry her umbrella with her to school, after she promised not to run over to the coat rack throughout the day to play with it. Sadly, the clouds parted before noon and the temperature rocketed into the nineties. So much for fall. After arriving home The Girl decided that she had to play dress up, and that the umbrella was an integral part of her ensemble.

Oh yes, and hot pink wedges were the order of the day as well. And no, I did not let her wear those to school. But yes, she did ask.
So glad you stopped by for a visit! For a complete list of all things sunny and pink please pop over to the blog of our wonderful hostess Beverly. Happy Day!

Pumpkins Please

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of pumpkins this year. There is a place out in the country that offers locally grown produce and I called them to ask if they had pumpkins yet. I could practically hear the clerk's eyes roll at my inquiry. "Pumpkins aren't ready yet," the woman said. In farmer talk what she really said was, "Pumpkins aren't ready yet, you big dummy." Granted it was September 1st when I called, but she still could have had some compassion on a poor pumpkin loving girl like myself.
So I have to play it cool now, I can't call back there again. I'm trying to convince my Sweetie to call from a pay phone for me or something like that, to find out the pumpkin status. His eye roll at this request makes me think that he and the farmer's market clerk are in cahoots somehow. So until I can get my hands on some orange beauties of a larger variety these little tiger pumpkins from Walmart will have to do.
