Sunday Contentments – Creative Endeavors

It’s Sunday afternoon. I’m on the couch with a cup of joe and my netbook. I’ve got four kids screeching and howling like a pack of wild monkeys in my living room. Oy vey!

In spite of the noise and the squabbling, I’m having a good day. Here’s my list of what gives me that warm fuzzy feeling at the moment. It’s mostly a list of creative endeavors that have paid off recently.

New website – okay, so only the blog is up, and it’s nowhere near it’s final configuration, but still, it looks nice, and I think if I keep working on it, in another week or so I will have finally set myself up to have all my disparate blogs rolled into one. That will be quite an accomplishment.

Pumpkin carving – we went to a pumpkin party last night. In theory, the kids were supposed to help scrape out the pumpkin guts. You know that didn’t happen. While the kids ran amok, a dozen adults got down on the kitchen floor (Oy, my knees!) and scraped out pumpkins. Then we consulted with the kids on what to carve on the pumpkins, and because no sane adult there was keen on handing anyone under the age of 30 a knife, we sent the kids away and carved the designs. I drew the designs on the girls’ pumpkins free form, after looking at a couple of stencils, and I have to say they came out pretty good. They’re sitting on the porch right now (and Princess’ is currently infested with ants. Oy!).

Cooking – I’m going to indulge in some cooking today, making a pumpkin souffle. I only make souffle in October, after I’m done scraping pumpkin guts out. It’s going to be a messy job, since I still haven’t sorted and washed everything (I just sort of threw the bag of guts in the fridge when we got home last night). But the souffle will taste wonderful, and it will be well worth the effort.

T-shirts – Target had some cool Halloween t-shirts on sale this week, so I picked up a couple to add to my collection (yes, I collect t-shirts). Very spooky, retro themed graphics on bold colors. Very freaky-chic looking. My kinda clothing, you know? I love my t-shirts.

Ugh. The girls in the living room are all arguing, necessitating the need for me to get off the couch and referee. But that’s okay. In fifteen minutes, they’re all going to someone else’s house, and I am content with that.
