Blogging cutbacks. I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year so I’ll be cutting back my blogging to twice a week: 52 Weeks of Blogging with Purpose on Mondays and then my Quick Takes here on Thursday nights/Fridays. Once November finishes and I’ve (God willing) won NaNoWriMo, I’ll be back to posting more frequently.

Nostalgia. Someone shared this list of things only 90′s teenage girls can understand and I got probably 45+ of them. I feel so old!

I don’t think I could make this up if I tried! So I saw this news story…
CBS Sacramento: Auburn Man Arrested For Bringing Chain Saw To Bar Fight
Yeah. I live in a freaking horror movie or something. (This isn’t close to where I live but it’s in the local news area.)

Halloween pics. Here are a couple pictures from today.
Jon as a Jedi and Daniel as Thomas the Tank Engine.
Our pumpkins from this year. The tall one is the old rugged cross and the smaller one is just crosses.

My philosophy on pumpkins. I believe that Jesus is the Light of the World so at least one of my pumpkins is always a cross of some nature. Part of this is that I went to college at a school that had a sizable Wiccan population and Halloween night was a scary time to have to walk home on campus by myself. Having a cross to ward off any evil spirits (which I believe exist but not much past that) helped. I also don’t do scary pumpkins because I know there are kids that have a really hard time with them. (I actually went out to the sidewalk to bring candy to a couple toddlers who were too afraid to come up to the porch because of the pumpkins.)
