Carving is done!

It took us some time and effort but the three big pumpkins have all been been carved and made ready. Our porch is now graced by a stylized snake, cheetah and panther that all look pretty cool when the candles are lit and it's dark. All we need to be ready tomorrow night is to load in the votive candles, light them and turn the porch light on. Idly I find myself worrying if we have enough candy for the kids, but I relly don't know how many will show up -- our neighborhood isn't exactly overrun with children.

When I get home tomorrow evening I will set out the three small pumpkins (one for each cat in the household) as well, although I don't think anybody plans to try to carve them -- that would be quite a bit of effort for very little return as these pumpkins are tiny. Maybe we can just decorate with some Sharpie markers.

Still, this is the best $32 I've spent in quite some time.

This evening has been quite a treat, it's 69 degrees F right now and the wind is gusting only lightly... it's absolutely gorgeous weather. I wish I had spent more of my evening sitting on the porch sipping a drink and reading, but I had other chores that needed attending to. If we can just hold this current trend for a few more days I'll consider it even for the lack of a summer that we had.
