This evening, the house went to our site coordinator’s house for a Saints game party. Not only was it fun to watch the game, but I enjoyed getting to talk with and meet the other host families. I still day mine takes the cake, but perhaps I am a little biased in my opinion. Regardless, there was also pumpkin carving going on, which I had initially told myself I wouldn’t be doing. For those who don’t know me, when it comes to pumpkins, the only thing I dislike more than the smell is the feeling of the guts. All the same, I was told the designs you can buy were too hard or too elaborate to do. So, I ended up carving one. I won’t say how many wolves are supposed to be there or what else didn’t turn out, but for doing this for the first time in years, I think it turned out pretty good.
I forgot how much the actual carving can be, and it took me back to my childhood. I don’t know if it will last til Halloween, but that’s neither here nor there at this point. Anyway, I hope you are well and thank you for staying with me thus far. May God bless you in all you do.
