Sometimes my beloved husband of a quarter century likes to prove that he's paying attention. Last night I mentioned that I often claim "pumpkin anything" as a favorite food. Tonight John put me to the test. He stopped at Trader Joe's, and brought me back a couple of edible gifts: three tangelos, and a "spiced pumpkin pie"-flavored Clif Bar. Thanks, John! *Gulp!* That really wasn't quite what I had in mind, but it certainly qualifies as "pumpkin anything" - healthy division.
Sorry this isn't a better picture. I was too close to it with the flash. Doesn't look promising as a foodstuff either, does it?
But it was good. Really, it was. Not pumpkin pie good, but almost pumpkin bread good.
A few notes before I go the heck to bed:
1. Jimmy, the Stupidsheet Guy, is now at stupidsheet.com, using the familiar Blogger interface. He explains what happened in a little more detail. Go give him a smile, will you? We owe him at least one or two of those.
2. I'm double-scheduled for 12:15 PM tomorrow. I'm supposed to simultaneously see Harry Potter at the mall and give blood at the Red Cross. Oops! I'd better go to bed, so I can get up early and reschedule the blood-giving part.
3. I've been distracted this week, for obvious reasons, which hasn't helped in the getting-stuff-done-at-work part of my life. I figure I have at least eight hours of work to do at the office between now and Monday morning. Between that and Harry Potter, you may not see too much of me this weekend. Nevertheless...
4. Tomorrow I'll have at least one entry here, and Chapter One, Part Two of Heirs of Mâvarin over on Messages from Mâvarin tomorrow night. Do go check it out, won't you? And over here, I'll be writing about this place, I think:
