Last night we had a pumpkin carving party and a few families gathered to eat chili and pumpkin bread, and pear apple cake and carve pumpkins. I loved that most of the kids were old enough to carve their own. (I never did this as a kid as the tools my dad used were huge knives–I love the new pumpkin carving saws.) My friend Kristy took pictures.

A couple of nights ago, I got a call from Kristy when I was already reading in bed saying “The aurora is out!” We were lucky enough to get a great view from my back yard, but photographing it was really hard for a novice like me. I got one shot that I liked because you can sort of see the big dipper above the northern lights.

I have been crocheting a bit even though this past week has been mostly taken up by making costumes and other halloween activities–I’m working on a design for a new magazine, and I’ve been planning for a new big project that I’ll talk about next week.

    You got a great picture of the northern lights! Could you hear them? Sometimes they crackle and pop.
