Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Pumpkin Thoughts

Giant Pumpkin

Today’s post is pumpkin heavy. I have pumpkins on the brain. It is that time of year. We took a trip out to Ye Olde Pumpkin Patch (not a real place) and picked out our pumpkins, got lost in a corn maze, all that fun stuff. There is most definitely not a pumpkin shortage on the island. There were pumpkins as far as the eye could see. You got to wonder what happens to all those pumpkins after October 31. I don’t think they get turned into carriages.

I successfully Did 2 Pins for Trish's Pin It and Do It Challenge. The Pumpkin Molasses Cookies were a great hit. They were so soft and spicy. The healthier Pumpkin Muffins were okay. Maybe I made them too soon after the cookies. Comparisons are never fair.

In book related news, The Twelve by Justin Cronin arrived in the mail. I tried to put off reading in but I just can’t resist. I started it last night. I also got a little something from Nimbus Publishing and since I rarely get book swag, I just had to take a photo of it. It had chocolate!

That’s Kin by Lesley Crewe, chocolate, sticky notes, and a tote. Thank you very much!


  1. Oh man, those cookies sound heavenly!!

  2. The cookies sound so good. I need to go get a pumpkin before they're all gone too.

  3. I remember having a pumpkin once as a child that we carved and put a candle in, but all the talk of Halloween this year makes me want to try some of the recipes. Both results of your baking look great!

  4. This is really good i love the color and size of the Pumpkins

  5. I recently went to a pumpkin patch and did the corn maze and all that. I did not get chocolate with a book, which is sad.

    (And those cookies sound awesome.)

    1. I love doing all that fallish stuff. It's tradition.

  6. I love your photos. This post makes me eager to get out to a pumpkin patch. :) Congrats on completing the Pin It and Do It Challenge -- those recipes look great.

  7. Awww hell! I forgot about THE TWELVE!!! What the heck. I should download and read that whole big sucker during the -athon.

  8. Soft and spicy is better than healthy ANY day. ;)

    Scott is listening to The Twelve right now. Actually not RIGHT NOW because he got bored with it. Hope you enjoyed more than he did!
