And this is as scary as I will ever be. 😀
I didn’t get my plans in order for November yet. Haha! Ok, maybe some structure, yes. But now, after writing this post I’m gonna take good old pen and paper and make a plan. I use my phone’s calendar daily but when I’m planning something I like (need) to write things down. It helps me to memorize things better and for some reason it also feels like I’m actually making progress, even though I haven’t started yet. Ever feel the same? But I’ve noticed lately, and this has never been the case before, I keep forgetting so many things during the day! Before you get all worried. 😀 I think the reason behind it is that we’ve got too many things on our plate. And I don’t like it! When I can barely finish one thing the second one lifts its head and totally distracts the other. And it’s so sneaky how all the things pile up. But trust me I’ve becoming better at saying things like NO. Mostly that’s all I want to say 😀 But really. It’s impossible to keep everybody happy! And I’m not suppose to. So there – No. But if I get really coordinated here maybe I can say yes to some things. haha.. will see.
For now back to the pumpkins. This arrangement will be my pumpkins last resort. After this, sadly I’m gonna throw them away. These pumpkins lasted really well! I read somewhere that if you soak your pumpkins in 1 tbsp. bleach in a gallon of water for 3 minutes it helps them to prevent rotting and that’s what I did. And It worked out great! But now to get all confused here, I started to google more about this and I got the same recipe but that the soaking time is up to 1 hour or more 😀 Well, the 3 minutes worked for me! Or maybe I just got really lucky with the pumpkins? Does anybody know a good middle ground here? As you probably know I was born and raised in Finland. We didn’t have pumpkins, Halloween or Thanksgiving. So It doesn’t help if I ask my Mom. She has absolutely no idea 😀 But what I’m also amazed with is how pretty these hydrangeas have stayed!!! They dried out so nicely without trying to dry them!:D LUCKILY I was smart enough to save them!!!! I can’t even remember when I got these? They literally have been here the whole fall. Next year, I’m definitely going to do the same thing.
Alright! Gotta get back on it. Making plans.
