blogger is back! Good blogger!!
Here are the photos from our pumpkin hunt on the last dry day of the year (Unless we get one of those frigid east winds off the high desert in December. Then everything is freeze-dried for two or three days before the freezing rain hits.)
The guy who owns this pumpkin patch also has a little hobby. He likes toy trains. Well, scale model trains. This runs all over his property. The pumpkin head on the engine is a seasonal addition.
We didn't take the train, but if we had, we would have been closer to the guys loading pumpkins into the wagon. The Sunday sky is foggy and grey, but NOT rainy!
And here are the guys unloading the wagon. I tried to get a shot of the pumpkins in mid-toss but my reactions just aren't quick enough. They blithely fling the gourds from hand to hand to hand to pile. Bet these fellows have muscles like strings of bowlingballs.
Here is DH with our selection. Isn't this a classic sort of photo?
And here are the Tuesday shoes! These are my duck-foot shoes. Wide at the toe are they. You will notice that most of my practical shoes have straps or ties at the ankle. That's because I have a narrow heel that pops right out of most shoes unless buckled in. So much for Tuesdays shoes.
Today, Thursday, I am prepping the house for Saturday's knitting group, and getting my hair cut. Choosing tablecloth and dishes and teacups, and shopping for fruit. TW is doing the baking. She is a master baker and my mouth waters in anticipation. Her biscotti are world class! She will bring pumpkin bread and scones as well and maybe brownies. And she makes wonderful coffee. I make a dark brown liquid that is almost, but not quite, totally unlike coffee.
The haircut will be downtown, and I love going downtown, so I may be a bit late getting home. I warned DH. If blogger co-operates, photos tomorrow.
