Aside from closing in on the conclusion of Thin Hope this week, I went to a pumpkin carving party this weekend.  Halloween happens to be my favorite holiday, so I’m no stranger to pulling slimy guts out of huge orange vegetables and plucking out all the seeds, which I saved and baked the following day.

Luckily, I do have a balcony that I put my finished pumpkins on, so I managed to get a couple of pictures:



Unfortunately, as it’s pouring tonight and blowing wind right onto my balcony, I can’t light the pumpkins right now, but hope to tomorrow night.  They look really cool lit up, at least to me, but I’m someone who rescues spiders and puts them outside instead of squashing them.  I still remember when I carved an evil Furby into a pumpkin one year.  (Hey–those things were creepy.)

We’re up to about 15 entries on the giveaway.  Keep them coming!  We still have a couple of weeks before the winner announcement!
