The header image on my blog changes from week to week, illustrating the vegetables I received in my CSA box that week. In week 23, I received two ornamental pumpkins that I stacked on the counter in an informal centerpiece.
My daughter took one of them to school to carry around.
I imagine my small girl wandering the halls of the bustling middle school in a Shakespearean tragic haze, carrying the pumpkin in front of her, as if it were Macbeth’s head after he was killed by his own son.
Every day is an adventure and I never know what is coming next. 🙂
