I got something in the mail from a friend yesterday.

Thanks, L.C.!  😀
That made me laugh!

Here is the squash rot.

It really is getting kind of nasty…
even by my standards.

As always, there are a few other things in there
to break up the gross out.

Happy Saturday!

P.S.  I’m having a really bad hair week.  😐  Sigh.



Not much to report today.

The little boy went to school and I ate pancakes with my mom.  😀

Even this afternoon’s 60-mile-round trip to see his private psychologist happened without any major meltdowns.

Now we settle into a potentially rainy Friday night before a week off from school.

The boy is watching his Charlie Brown Christmas dvd again and I am planted at the computer while we wait for the husband.

We picked up a loaf of sourdough on the way home and there is pea soup waiting for me in the kitchen.

It’s just a cozy, quiet evening in our messy house.

Tonight is about relaxing after a difficult week.

Tomorrow will likely include some turkey day prep, a little tidying of this and that, and maybe even a short gift shopping excursion, but nothing too crazy.

I’m still pondering our couch dilemma, but have resigned myself to the fact that it may not be resolved before Christmas.

Oh well.  Who cares, right?

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to tune in for your pumpkin pal updates!

Happy Friday!

P.S. In our home, we traditionally play A Charlie Brown Christmas original sound track as we decorate the tree on the day after Thanksgiving.  That music by the Vince Guaraldi Trio is our holiday favorite.  I highly recommend you get a copy as soon as possible!  If you decide to buy the video set as well, get the dvd version and don’t bother with the blue ray “upgrade.”  The blue ray format apparently adds nothing to the quality of the video and it actually detracts from the sound.
