First, to take care of the suspense. I had another order yesterday afternoon. Delighted, I attempted to submit the show, and could not because of a technical error. I called Janalisa in alarm, and she told me that I actually have until midnight tonight to reach the goal.
When I tried again with the software this morning, all was fine. However, I also had an email from a visitor to this blog, saying that she needed something if it wasn’t too late.
Thanks to the technical error, it wasn’t too late. So as soon as I get hold of this lady and find out what she needs, I will send in the show and feel like I won! I won! Which is quite fun.
And no, we never did sell the Theme Pig.
Here is the pumpkin patch. I sat here in the upper 80s October afternoon and knitted Ivy. I reached the point where the decreases for the armscye and the V-neck both have to be done at once, and I have carefully read and re-read it and knitted it with great attention, and we’ll see what happens.
These pumpkins are grown by a Native American mission in Arizona and brought over here, where the kids of the church sell them for a Good Cause. True, adults mind the pumpkins some of the time, but the kids do most of it, and all the organization, thus gaining skills and a sense of accomplishment and whatnot. I figure that makes three Good Causes in all.
#2 son does not attend church with me, I am sorry to say, but he did come hang out with me at the pumpkin patch and carry pumpkins to the old ladies’ cars, so good for him. #1 daughter brought me a sandwich, too. We bought some pumpkins of our own, too.
There should have been crisp fall weather for this undertaking, of course, but that didn’t happen. Mellow fruitfulness, yes; crispness, no.
Today I have a dental appointment, and eight hours of computer work, and then a rehearsal tonight.

picking pumpkins when it’s in the 80’s & 1000% humidity is just crazy-wrong!
ryc: I din’t mean to imply that a woman/wife/mother just “sits” home. I was trying to be funny, but I guess I wasn’t very. because we all know that any woman who is at home for any length of time never has the chance to just sit. but it would sure be nice wouldn’t it.
Yeah, #2 son for helping out. What a wonderful pumpkin patch. My spouse and I were at IHOP the other day and overheard a dad and his 2.5 – 3 year old son explaining to the server that they were going to the Pumpkin Patch and were going to ride the train and frolic in the hay. Sounds great, eh? If only we were 3 again and could frolic with such abandon!
YAY for making your sales goal! That’s awesome. The pumpkin patch looks so fun. I’m getting sick of this warm weather though, it’s October, we need some highs that only get up to mid 60s! I hope your dentist appointment goes well and good luck with the computer work & the rehearsal.
