Iced Pumpkin

Mary Chapin Carpenter sings, "Sometimes you're the windshield
Sometimes you're the bug.
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you're just a fool in love."
It's all about your perspective. This pumpkin next to the garden fence looked pretty 'halloweenie' back in October, but to me, it's even more exciting this morning iced-in. Human nature's a funny thing. Take brothers and sisters. On one level, so close in blood, yet they often are so different in so many ways. Some are subtle; others strikingly unique. To each their own, as they say. Vive la difference!

  2. My siblings couldn't be more different from each other... all five of us. Vive la différence, indeed! I'd rather be the windshield than the bug, but that doesn't stop me from feeling like the bug some days. Your iced pumpkin photo is wonderful, yet makes me BRRRR....

  6. Yes, that is certainly an interesting take on the pumpkin. And one of my favorite things to say is, "Thank goodness we are all different. Otherwise, it would be oh so boring around here." And I've only got one brother!
