Pumpkin Notes

1) So the Wordless Wednesday Ivan was one example from our book character pumpkin patch. Last year was the first time we tried it and had over 100 entries! We NEVER get that kind of participation. Now ... this year there have been a lot more non-book entries. Never quite sure what to do there. I have been going with the flow and say "Hey that looks great!" but inside silently wishing it wasn't from a tv show. I am a little worried, however, about what we will find on Monday after a weekend of no AC. Lots of people did not pay so much attention to the "Please don't carve or puncture your pumpkin." :/ Also our Spirit Stick prizes were not in yet! We ordered them 6 weeks ago!

2) Every year we have "dinner in a pumpkin" on Halloween. The casserole is tasty and then you add salt and pepper to some of the scooped out pumpkin. YUM vegetable before the candyfest. Also the marker face is a must. Cause it kind of melts and looks funny.

3) I am in the mood for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Too bad I am getting kicked out of my house four times today (once is already done!) for people looking at it. I guess that's good. Need it to sell! Cookies might have to wait until tomorrow.
Enough of the not really library related-ness. Cross your fingers it's not #smellylibrary for us on Monday and have a great weekend!


  1. Crossing my fingers for no smelly library! I love your book character pumpkin patch...I hope they don't get yucky on you. Good luck with your house showings!

  2. Thanks! This year started off with a bang with appendicitis, carried through with building decisions, job change applications that apparently were not to be, and is ending with a bang with selling current house/finally finishing new house drama. I'm ready for this carnival ride to BE OVER. Lucky enough to have good family by my side, though.
    Now the character pumpkins part? We'll see about that. #smellylibrary #pumpkinpatchfun

  3. Angie, it looks like I'll have some extra spirit sticks. If you need some, let me know!

    1. I may just have to take you up on that. Our bookkeeper was going to look into it but I haven't heard back from her. Will see tomorrow. Ordered them EONS ago.
