Orange, Not Pink, and Halloween!

Quickie post just to say hello and wish you a very happy Halloween. I love Halloween, even though I basically do nothing on the day itself. But with pumpkin preparation, and building up to this time of year with all the fallen leaves of reds, brown and yellow . . *sigh*. . . how could you not love Halloween? I know that October is meant to be painted with pink – and for sure it is in some places, but for me it’s about the falling leaves and how they crunch underneath the foot. And honestly, I’ve been so wrapped up in how pretty it is this time of year, I hardly even noticed it was breast cancer awareness month. Really, it’s October –which means, it’s the month for HALLOWEEN.

Anyhow. Zsolt’s been working like a nutter these past several weeks, so this weekend it was all about bonding. We had my brothers over for brunch, we went to the market, looked at costumes for Z’s workplace, roasted a chicken, portioned chicken soup for later, watched a movie and carved this pumpkin. Sometimes I think you need these lazy and yet emotionally productive days.

I just want to say, I love October. And if you decide to focus on the things that warm your heart, I reckon the other stuff just fades into the background.

Happy Halloween, from Bumpybooooooooooos!

  1. Happy Halloween to you, too. My mother’s birthday was Halloween, so I like to think of her and not the whole pink-tober thing. Thanks for the pictures of the Jack O’Lanterns. They take me back to my innocent childhood before I even knew what cancer was. xox
