This was the most lovely October I can remember. Cold when it should be cold and warm for Halloween.
These pictures were taken on October 11. It was just as the leaves were starting to really turn.
We walk the dogs around this pond.
The dogs like to walk down in the mud.
I adore heaps of strange looking pumpkins.
I always get at least one strange pumpkin, though they look best if surrounded by $200 worth of equally unusual pumpkins.
This one may actually be a gourd.
Or maybe a squash?
I have no idea. How can I possibly be homeschooling my children when I don't have the answers to these critical questions?
I do know that pumpkins are fruits! Maybe that redeems me a little. I also know that pumpkin pie is a perfectly acceptable breakfast food. During the fall and winter pumpkin pie is often the breakfast of choice.
This blog has gone a bit rambly lately hasn't it? Hang in there people! I'm bound to redevelop some sort of narrative cohesion any day now.
