Pumpkin Patch Part Deux: The Daisy Invasion

Last saturday Pumpkin's Daisy troop had a plan to go to a nearby pumpkin patch and have a few hours of fun. Of the 6 registered girls, only three made it out to the patch and so we had a small but energetic group of younguns.

Not from the Pumpkin Patch, but aren't we cute?

So, anyway a good time was had by all and now I have to find a way of decorating 6 tiny un-carvable pumpkins, paints or something I suppose. We still have one pumpkin patch trip in the planned future, as I have yet to get Squirt out and stick him in with the gourds for the traditional picture I have of all my kiddos during their first Halloween season. I made him a little pumpkin hat and if I have time I'll do one for my kids as well, we'll just have to see how the time plays out over the next week. 

Have I mentioned how much I love fall?


Pumpkin Patch Part 1

Today Pumpkin went to the Pumpkin Patch with her kindergarten class. She got to make her way through an inflatable "haunted maze", play on an ancient fire truck and pick out a pumpkin to take home. I dropped her off at school and waited in the parking lot to follow the buses because the school told us chaperons that we had to manage our own transportation to the site.

I was under prepared for how chilly it became and ended up wrapping my awesome pashmina scarf around my head to shield my numb ears from the wind. Pumpkin had a good time and in spite of the drizzly rainy dark skies she ran around and played the whole time. The teacher asked if I had ever worked in education because I sounded like I had been a teacher at some point. Must have been a combination of being a camp volunteer and working in the field I'm in for so long.

Anyway here are a few shots of Pumpkin, her class and myself from our first trip to the home of the great pumpkin this year.

They kept yelling, "look it's an eye!!!"

do you see the eye?

you can't buy these for another week.

She say's, "Mommy I'm all bones!"

Pumpkin and the pumpkins.

Photos and Pink Eye

Tell me if you see the images in the center of the flowers. 

This outline took about 50 minutes, the top of it, where it's red, hurt like a bitch!

Today I have tons to do and am recovering from a wicked case of Pink Eye, I'm pretty sure my head is going to either explode or fall off, shrivel up and roll away like a rotten apple. I hope everyone had a good weekend, mine was not awesome with being sick and having eye funk. 

Saturday I had the chance to sleep in, but couldn't so I bummed around until it was time to get dressed for Jeeve's cousin's wedding. It was a casual wedding, at the bride's father's home and they served fried chicken and party potatoes for dinner. I'd have had way more fun but my eye was creating yellow strings of gooey yuck that kept goobing out onto my face.

But on the bright side my awesome doctor came in to the office on a Sunday to check out my eye, and gave me a sample of the prescription so I didn't have to go to the pharmacy. My doc rocks, hardcore and he's adorbs, so double score for me. When I went in to have my headaches stuff looked at he was asking about stressors in my life (and I'm all like, you want that alphabetically or chronologically) and he says, well there medication that can help with that, but you seem to have a good attitude about it and I think meds will just make you depressed, so we'll try other things first. He remembered that I'm breastfeeding, and have thyroid concerns right now and asked about those things while I was sitting in his exam room ON A SUNDAY!!!! I just can't get over it, he's the best doc I've ever had.


This and Tat

Not a misspelling.

This afternoon, I am going to have my second tattoo placed on my upper right hip. It's a lotus flower design that I came up with and I can't wait to show you all.

I am going to be working on Halloween costumes this weekend and while my initial plan was to be a "dude" gnome, I have re-evaluated and am now going to rock the skirt and apron instead.I have many of the raw pieces I need and hope to acquire the rest via Goodwill. Halloween on a budget, can't be bad.

I am having trouble with concentration today and will be amazed if anything actually gets done.

I think I'm gonna throw up...



It's finally October.

I LOVE October, I love the seasonal beers, I love the weather, I love the holiday, I love the candy, I love the pumpkin patches, I love the foods, I love it all. YAY October. I can't even explain it, but I woke up this morning and realizing it was "fall" just took a huge weight off my shoulders.

With 9 people living in one house, starting a daisy girl scout troop, teaching weekend classes and squirt avoiding sleep like it is a clown juggling severed heads, I've been a little stressed so hopefully the cool breeze, cooler brew and a few afternoons of slightly chilly relaxing in the yard will balm my frazzled nerves and allow me some much needed zen time.

In other zen news, my bedroom is probably the cleanest it has ever been. I spent the majority of the day in there yesterday folding laundry, organizing the closet and finding better storage for the multitudes of blankets and pillows that have been amassed over the last 3 years. I also got down and cleaned up a bunch of carpet stains and then vacuumed the crap out of the rug, thanks to my brother and his new awesome cleaning supply windfall.

It's looking good in there and I have hooked up a TV with a dvd player we had laying around so now I can watch movies while folding laundry. I'm not hooking up cable in there because I don't want to start keeping myself awake watching the news (right, we all know I'd be watching My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.)

Anyway, I have a busy month, 3 trips to the pumpkin patch, 2 weddings, 2 birthday parties, and 1 Trunk or Treat night. It can't get much better. OH! wait, yes it can, we are getting a second car in two weeks...

happy sighs...
