We went to see Cirque du Soleil’s new show Totem last night. That was an extended bout of Present Moment Happiness! From shopping under the bigtop to holding my breath while the show was going on, it was awesome! I love Cirque, they bring PMH wherever they go. I’m not sure who had the bigger gasps, me or the 10 year old next to me.
Tonight is Halloween though, and I lovelovelove this night. I was something of a slacker with the decorations, but we did grow three beautiful pumpkins that are now on the porch.
This is the largest of the three, and today it’s more orange and dusky than when the pic was taken. A year ago I’d seen a man at the farmer’s market cut into one of these. Deep orange flesh, and it smelled so very pumpkiny. I don’t know how else to describe it. So I set out to get a plant and grew them in the front yard. Musquee de Provence is the name of this beautiful fruit. Now we have three and I’m determined to make something wonderful from them. I’m not big on the traditional pie. Might need some suggestions.
Gardening and the things one can grow- pmh for sure.
Things observed: We don’t get many kids for trick or treating, but man are they cute. Emily is fond of spraying them with Silly String. We will need many more cans next year. I love my new clown accessories. I’m glad we don’t have any chocolate left over. Perhaps we should grow more pumpkins next year.
