I have nothing too exciting to report today. I did, however, stay up late last night baking a pumpkin. This country thing is really sinking in. And then I used the food processor - the one my sister loaned to me and I conveniently never gave back - to mash up the pumpkin into, well, mashed pumpkin. It was my first try at baking a pumpkin to see if I should do that next year with all the pumpkins I'm going to grow. Now I just have to figure out what to do with all of it. I made pumpkin muffins for breakfast that Ty thinks I should make for Christmas morning (he said that about my blueberry muffins, too. I think he just likes muffins). Hopefully my friend Melissa will share her pumpkin scone recipe with me. Any suggestions for pumpkin mush?

And on the subject of country livin' I think the chicken is going to meet his demise. Sorry Chad. But I think he's stalking me. At first I pretended that he was running after me because he wanted to be friends and I was okay with that. But now whenever I turn my back, he high tails it for me, like he's going to strike. And then when I turn around he just looks at me like "What are you looking at." I'm telling you if that little sucker attacks me, we're having chicken for dinner.

I've heard of roosters getting like that with people...weird. I was hoping Melissa would post that pumpkin scone recipe on her blog. ;)
