If you read the post from last week (and if you didn’t, I’d recommend that you read it first) then you know we had a rough day with pumpkins and taxes. It’s amazing what a few days and a new perspective will do for you though. We looked into the taxes, and discovered that the twelve dollars of additional income was actually on one of the kid’s CD’s and a quick letter to the IRS with a SSN should clear that up. (That’s a lot of capital letters for one sentence.) The same day we discovered the new website of a dear friend of ours devoted to the rescue of a lot of Halloween pumpkin rejects, a massive amount of puree and a daily devotion to serving it up with style, sass and a fair sprinkling of humor. We may have lost our perfect pumpkin to rot, but there are other pumpkins out there fulfilling their calling in life in the form of biscotti, marshmallows and cheesecake. Check it out, and as my father always says, keep smilin‘. Some days are tougher than others, but most can be made better with a bit of baking soda and cinnamon.
