A Week of....Pumpkins

 If I  have to pick a favorite season, it's fall.  Maybe it's a side effect of living in Texas where hibernation happens in the summer not the winter because of the heat.  If you can make it through August....especially this last August, fall is such a welcome friend.  In particular, I heart pumpkins.  I like to eat them (not whole).  I like to dig out the seeds and decorate them (the pumpkins, not the seeds).  I like to...whatever you were about to say...yup, that too.  I was digging through past post, and I saw  I had a ton of pumpkin post already to add to this week of....  I've added some more to throw up this week, and as the fall progresses....I'm sure I'll be posting more because I have some ideas I'm dying to try, I just need to find some time to try 'em.  :O)
