More Pumpkin

Today’s pumpkin deliciousness, Pumpkin frozen custard with pecans from Fritz’s! This is the best! It’s going to take a lot for me not to go get it every day, haha. Lucky for me, my wallet, and my diet, I don’t live behind Fritz’s anymore, so it’s not quite as much of a temptation to me as it was.

And, as a tradition to myself, I eat one pumpkin Reese’s once I see them out.

Not pumpkin, but pumpkin shaped AND a Reese’s, so that’s good enough for me. I have no idea when or why I started this yearly tradition, it’s just something I do.

New appliance

I bought a toaster oven today. This will only be used for my polymer clay projects, no food whatsoever. I already have about four things lined up to be baked in it, and I would have done so tonight, however I forgot to get foil, so that is tomorrow’s mission along with getting more Sculpey and Fimo. I’m currently using Super Scupley, but it’s old and very gummy once I’ve rolled it a bit. Old as in about 6 years old, so I’m due for new packets of clay.

If all goes well in the making and baking process, I will be putting them up for sale in my Etsy. The sculptures look cute as they are now, so if they bake right, then they should turn out great.

Oh, and one bit of amusement while reading the instructions for the oven..

Obviously meant to be “cool”, but the “coo” makes me think a phantom bird resides within.

Fall mood

I know it’s not fall yet, but I’ve been more than ready for it, so once we hit September, I pulled out the decorations, mainly just the pumpkins and seasonal candles. While the cats are technically Halloween oriented, those are actually the salt and pepper shakers we use year round. I’m saving the rest of my Halloween decor for October.

So the apartment is very pumpkin-y, which makes me a happy kitten. And to keep with the early fall-like activities, I had my first Pumpkin Spice Frappucinno from Starbucks yesterday! As I thought, it’s delicious with the chips.
