Saturday centus week 22

This week we have a picture of a pumpkin field as the prompt. If a picture can paint a thousand words does this mean I can use 1000 words? Ok I will stick to the usual 100

How was I going to make Halloween different this year?

I did not have children at home for the first time , I went to the pumpkin fields as normal with my usual neighbourhood group. I went through the motions of choosing 4 great pumpkins. The farmer through an extra one in for me as he liked my smile.

When I got home I pondered for a while what to do I carved as usual but instead of throwing the pulp away I made some delicious soup and took it to the homeless shelter a perfect treat.

What a wonderful, thoughtful Centus. I love the idea of taking the soup to the homeless. Great take on this prompt. Very heartfelt.

Oh how sweet! Nice! I also love the first comment on the 1000 words, I didn't go there...surprised more people didn't think to give teacher the business about that one!

A lovely SC :o)

Mmmm. Wish I had some of that soup right now! But I like that it was taken to a homeless shelter even more.

Really nice thought to go with the pumpkin theme.

Great way to continue to make holidays meaningful even when the little ones have flown.

I loved this! What a wonderful idea, and a great new tradition. And your comment about 1000 words made me giggle. Wish I'd thought of that, I had a horrid time keeping mine to 100 words :) Kat

Hi Tracy. I like your new header. It made me feel very autumnal.

And I liked this thoughtful and compassionate use of the prompt.

It didn't surprise me that you thought of this.

Your profile picture is really pretty!
