Might be, anyway . . . cold and rain in the forecast. It has occurred to me that we use a lot of pumpkin around here, and hmmm, brilliant idea . . . what if I bought some from the farm and froze it?!!? Snort. I am always so late to the party :-).
It was so fun; I had Clara running the numbers for me in the van on the way there, to see, “OK, if we bought enough pumpkins to make our pumpkin bread recipe once a week for the whole next year, how many pumpkins would that be?” When we arrived at the farm and saw the sign “pumpkins .30¢”, the question was, “We can’t spend more than $50.00 on this, so what is that in pounds?” Here’s the fun part! When we rolled the wheelbarrows full of pumpkins up the ramp to be weighed, Clara had calculated we needed 140 pounds, and we had . . . 145 pounds! We’d thrown in quite a bit of squash there as impulse buys, but when the lady rang up our order, get this, $50.12!!! Love that.
Choosing pictures is going to be excruciating here, as it was such a sunny day and the event was so fun, we ended up with a ton of great shots. Get yer scrollbar ready!
Nigel and Sophia were off from college-school today, so we were only missing The Patriarch (well, and always missing Malcolm away at school):
What a good day.
