A GREAT PUMPKIN


My Hillbilly family and their great pumpkin, they grew it, they are 15 and 12. That is so wonderful to have, these roots. My sister and her family still grow their own large garden, and can (which is an old way to keep food), for winter. She even painstakingly prepares fresh okra for her chickens, kind of by accident.

This natural grown pumpkin is a sign that fall is around the corner. It is time flying by, when it was spring and now fall is looking at us.

Make your time count for good, it will be gone before you know it. Life is like the seasons, it moves by fast.

I can hug that huge pumpkin. I used to bake pumpkin cake Kim. I even make pumpkin soup. Great for cold season. We love it roast too!

I like the way you liken life to the seasons.

It sure does move fast. It is crazy how one season seems to turn into the next and the next and the next. My oldest has her first day of kindergarten this afternoon and it just doesn't seem possible.

Hope you have been doing okay.
