My son says I am pumpkin “obsessed”.
That weekend that I came home with a pumpkin to display, a six pack of America’s Original Pumpkin Ale by Buffalo Bill’s Brewery, and ingredients to continue my quest to make the best pumpkin pie.
As soon as the calendar turns to September, I crave pumpkin delicacies of all sorts. Pumpkin muffins and bread, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin ravioli.
One of our favorite restaurants has a delectable pumpkin pie with a graham cracker crust that is only available for about 6 weeks in the fall.
I also love the look of pumpkins that come in a range of sizes and colors, each with their own personality.
I’m not sure if it’s my love of fall with the colors and briskness in the air or the fact that pumpkins are only available a couple months of the year but there is something about them that simply delights me. So, I go with it.
My tip of the month to you is that if something delights you, go with it.
When you find things that delight you, it is not something to ignore.
Delight will also give you clues to answering questions about yourself.
And as you see in the picture above, I’ve put the six pack container to use and filled it with bottles of orange and red flowers, the last of our summer flowers beginning to fade. The fun black cat is a papier mache pen made by Johanna Parker, an artist who specializes in Halloween and Holiday collectibles.
By the way, my son said the pumpkin pie I made was the best one yet.
