Two Goals on my Horizon

1. Puree my own pumpkin. I adore baking and cooking with pureed pumpkin, and have always been intrigued by making it happen for myself instead of relying on cans of the stuff. I keep hearing rumors that the pumpkin you puree yourself is oh-so-that-much-more tasty. Can anyone attest?

With her step-by-step instructions (and photos), Pioneer Woman once again makes something ostensibly difficult seem feasible. Her instructions for homemade pureed pumpkin here. I like you, Ree Drummond.

2. Take a break from the ole blog.

I've been fairly convicted this week/end of last week reading several (what else?) blog posts about the value of "unplugging" for a while, and I'm going to give it a go.

from Rocks in my Dryer (thanks Erin): this article on detachment from the internet really really spoke to me when a dear friend sent it to me a few months ago.

from Conversion Diary: this article about a week without the internet completely (not what I exactly have in mind, but instructive nonetheless).

from Simple + Pretty [and less heavy]: this blurb about recharging the creative juices. I don't think I'm quite there, because I don't post four times/day like a lot of these blogs I read... but I admire the sentiment of keeping oneself from overload all the same.

We're not talking anything too drastic, people... just a little practice in letting go, I guess [this is way too dramatic?].

But I'll see you mid-week next week, hopefully armed with some evidence of homemade pumpkin puree!
