October 20, 2018: Pumpkin Picking

Today is a ‘staying local’ Saturday: the only big thing that Andy and I did was go pumpkin picking at the buffalo farm in our area. I enjoy searching for pumpkins, and I’m so glad that there was one in the farm that was in great condition. I also made sure to bring my itty bitty Snoopy and Linus, since they rightfully belong in a pumpkin patch!

A couple years ago I would have been extremely annoyed at spending a Saturday night at home. However, now that we need to save money, especially since we’re getting married  next summer, it’s important to keep track of what we spend. If it means spending a weekend night at home, so be it. It will be a productive night; I have lots of reading to catch up on, and Game 7 of NLCS is on, so it will be entertaining.

October 18, 2018: Great Pumpkin

I watched ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’. It was exciting to catch the show after a busy day at work.

I enjoy Halloween so much! This year it falls on the middle of the week, but there’s still a chance to wear a costume the weekend before the special holiday. I still have my costumes from the past couple years, and it will be fun to wear them soon.

Looking forward to Saturday, since we’re going pumpkin picking! It’s so exciting to search for your own pumpkin, and decorating it when you get home. It’s a great bonding time between Andy and I also.

October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead

Today I relaxed and worked on my classroom pumpkin. At work we were each given a pumpkin to decorate by the end of the week, so since I’m always busy doing a million things at work, I took care of it here at home. I chose a sinple outline: a cat gazing up at a full moon. I always love pumpkin carving. After the initial cut around the pumpkin’s center, it’s simple after that.

Andy and I also watched The Walking Dead. I love the story, but the comic is much more enjoyable than the show. So many characters have taken different routes on the television version, with some main people making their departures soon. I’m not sure what’s going to happen as the season progresses. It’s nice to see the interracial romances taking place on the show though.
