happy pumpkins

IMG_9734While I am recoiling in horror from halloween with its uncalled for obsession with all things ghostly, ghoully and gruesome, I am very grateful that this year I have discovered pumpkins.  I’m falling in love with their beautiful colour, so lovely and aumtumnul; I love everything that we can do with them that match so well our needs at this time of year: providing us with warmth, colour, light and hot food.  So for the first time I made two pumpkin lanterns.  I made a pumpkin pie.  I am ready to make pumpkin soup.  I am about to roast pumpkin seeds.  What more could a body ask for?  (Really, I should have photos of all of these lovely things but my lovely R is away with the camera.)IMG_9737

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
