The search begins...

I sat down this evening and looked at my calendar. It's time to go out to the Great Pumpkin Patch and bring home that one special pumpkin. 


If only it were so easy.... The choice in Libya is pretty limited. It's hard to find one that's orange on the outside....  sigh... but I will try my best.

  2. Libyans don't celebrate Halloween. It's an American holiday and I like to keep up with some things. Sometimes we have a Halloween party but usually we just have a Jack-o-lantern (provided I can find a suitable one).
