Craving Pumpkin!

I am in the food for Fall! (<- Okay, I did not even realize that I typed food there. I must have been quite hungry.)

I'm ready for the leaves to change... for there to be a nip in the air... Thanksgiving... and all things PUMPKIN!

I got a Taste of Homes catalog in the mail today and it was the Thanksgiving-ish edition. (It was more the pre-Thanksgiving edition. It included all things Turkey Day, but also threw in some Halloween goodies). There was this Pumpkin Turtle Pie that was on the first page...oh.... my...word! It looked SO good, and I almost ran out and bought the stuff to make it right then. However I said to myself, "Self, do you really need this pie? What will you do with it after you make it besides eat the whole thing by yourself and gain 10 pounds?" So I kept browsing and tucked that recipe in the back of my mind for the first available opportunity to use it.

One more week completed. School is going to be wrapping up soon and that scares me a little bit. I mean think about it. I've been going to school for 17 years now, the last 3 of which I have taken summer classes. That's most of my life I've been in school! I can't imagine not having to get up and go to class. Don't get me wrong, it will be oh so sweet, and I will cherish it. I'm just saying it will be weird at first. I will officially be an adult. *shudder* That's scary! Alas, I am not done quite yet. Eleven more weeks require my attention so that I can pass tests, give presentations, and write papers. I will somehow make it through. I made it through these last 17 years without being held back, I'm not going to start now!

Well, I better get to work. I want to take an online quiz before I go and get my hair trimmed. Have a good Friday!
