Time Off

Going to take a week off from blogging.
Trying to spend all my free time working on props for this year's display.

Pumpkin Ice Cream

While at our local Dunkin Donuts, which happens to have a Baskin-Robbins inside, we saw a new seasonal ice cream - Pumpkin Cheesecake:  Fall into flavor with our delicious pumpkin and cheesecake flavored ice creams with ginger snap cookie pieces and a delicious cinnamon cream cheese flavored ribbon. 

It looked amazing.
I think we're heading back there tonight to get some.

First Pumpkin Of The Season

It was pumpkin season at the local Acme.
Mums and pumpkins..it was great to see them again.
And on a day when it didn't break 80 degrees.


Pumpkin Season

At Dunkin Donuts (not in our garden, where all pumpkins have died and only one animal-pecked gourd remains).
We're heading out to get the first pumpkin spice iced coffees of the season.

D. L. & Co Halloween 2014

Click the $85.00 skull candle to see their current Halloween selection.  I imagined someone buying one of these and their elderly mother lighting it not knowing 85 clams were dropped for it.  I imagined it being quickly blown out by its nervous owner...Now you've gone and RUINED it!

Extra

Funny.  We were in a Target and I was whining about Extra gum not having a pumpkin pie flavor (I had spotted a Cinnamon Bun flavor by them and it was a Man-Baby trigger for me).

Pumpkin Spice is close enough.
Hopefully I can find some of these.
