After I was finished shopping at the farmer's market, I made a dash to a "pick-your-own" pumpkin patch at a local church. There were a lot of kids out with their parents selecting the family pumpkins. I really loved the beautiful energy that was in the air. Very happy. I got a few pumpkins in different sizes, some colorful gourds, and three pots of chrysanthemums to adorn my front steps.
Back at home, I broke out my painting supplies and started on the pumpkin crafts. Last year, I turned my pumpkin into a frog and it ended up being a hit on Halloween. This time around, I decided that an Angry Bird pumpkin was in order. It came out looking really good. I can't wait to put it on the front porch for the trick or treaters! So much fun! Cheers!
"But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into the world,
and we can take nothing out of it."
