This was the first time my husband and I carved a pumpkin together. Of course, we named him Jack. We created him by searching for ideas on Pinterest. My only criteria as we searched, was that our pumpkin have a happy face.
Gee wiz I’ve grown accustomed to him sitting next to our front door. I know that Jack is only temporary. But it won’t be easy to let him go. We didn’t carve last year’s pumpkin, and we kept that one until the life oozed out of it. But we won’t let that happen to Jack. He’ll go with dignity and return next October to smile once again.
Even more temporary than Jack, is the pretty fall foliage. I wanted to run over to the golf course near a walking trail I use, because the prettiest most vividly reddish trees are there. Unfortunately, my silly daily errand list delayed my visit by too many days. Yesterday I could see that most of the leaves had fallen off. Here’s a photo of this year’s (now vowing to get there earlier next year), as well as last year’s, (when I vowed to get there earlier this year).
