Thank you blogfriends and the pumpkin experience!


Greetings to all my amazing blogfriends. Have i mentioned recently how grateful i feel to have you in my life? Yesterday i was feeling scattered, stressed and off balance. Your support gave me power, optimism and hope. So many of you were there for me in a time i really needed it. Thank you! You are wonderful and i am blessed to have you here.
People maybe say that blogging is an impersonal form of communication, but this was the exact opposite. And since i open my heart to you every time i get here and i share the most intimate of truths i thoought i should change my profile image and show you the real me in the flesh(so to speak). I do not know why i have n't done that already but this was the time and here is me!
Do you feel Samhain coming? It is almost here. This year i will try once more to carve a pumpkin. Have i mentioned how bad i suck at this? Every year it is a disaster. Let me paint you a picture. Imagine me in an obsessed mode, covered by sweat, hair all messed up, elbow deep in a huge pumpkin, in a kitchen covered by orange juices and seeds, trying(and failing each and every time) to make shapes in the gigantic vegetable. At some point huge chunks of the pumpkin that were n't meant to get cut off, end up in the floor, making me after hours of dedicated carving to throw it all away. I always see videos that make it seem so simple and i think:"Hey, i can do that!". But after all these years i realise that it is sort of a tradition and it won't be fun if i do not destroy a pumpkin.

You are gorgeous , although I always knew you would be!

Good luck with your pumpkin carving (it always seems a good idea at the beginning)

Pumpkin carving is always a bit a trial for me as well. I like you think if I spend this much time doing something, I would like to be able to keep it.....but then, yeah I get it.
Have fun. Oma Linda

Well,I could say I'm sure you'll make a wonderful pumpkin this year...however, that is probably not the case...anyway, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time making a carved pumpkin of some kind so that you can through it out for the animals or whoever would like to eat it...

Happy Samhain...

I agree...Samhain would be no fun without a pumpkin. Who cares if it looks scary...that's what how it should look right? Ha! Just enjoy the experience. Happy 1st day of October. PS...I LOVE the music playing on your blog...very magical!

carving pumpkins.. i'm not so good at it either! but i try and i end up messing it up and i think of something really creative... like last year i was making a crazy spooky face and accidently cut out his eye ball!! oh no! so i took some pumpkin guts and the eyeball and droopped it down so it looked like it'd been gauged out and put one of my skull & cross bones bandanas on it so he looked like a pirate... it turned out super awesome!! just takes a bit of creativity if you mess up :-)
