It seems like only yesterday I was filling the outdoor planters with potting soil for spring flowers. Now it's time to inspect the pumpkins in hopes of spotting those with the right shapes and perfect stems. So far I have purchased one extra nice specimen, and that may be the only one due to prices. But seeing other yards and porches decorated, I tend to want a few more. Are we ever satisfied? I am trying to be. I am also trying to stay focused in the present, not looking back on old memories or stressing about the future.
