Another Round of...

What is this?

This round is easier to figure out...mostly

Yes, it is a packet that formerly held White Pumpkin Seeds
"formerly" not because I planted them...except for 1 lone seed...but "formerly" because, apparently, one of the FBDs (Furry Baby Dogs) developed a yen for pumpkin seeds in the middle of the night
and ate all but 1 seed
I think I've been livin' with the Men Folk too long* because this morning as I passed a few little shreds of paper layin' on the dining room floor, I eyed them curiously, but went on about my business
Then, off to the side near the passageway from the dining room to the living room, I saw an odd little fat tear-shaped object...still no impulse from my brain to my feet to stop so as to investigate the gathering evidence of a Crime Committed
But eventually, I slowed down the Morning Whirlwind Pace enough to pick up the paper shreds and the Odd Little Object...and then discover the rest of the victim you see in the above photo shoved back behind one of the Windsor Chairs
I really don't even bother gettin' angry about these things any more
So, I took my 1 little white pumpkin seed out to the garden this morning and interred it there with a trace of hope that it will spring mightily forth from the dirt and I'll have tons of White Pumpkins artistically scattered about the front yard
I expect The Reality will be closer to I'll be cartin' myself to the Savannah's State Farmer's Market to buy expensive White Pumpkins come this October

*Admit it...if you have lived with a husband and/or male child for any length of time, then you have deliberately not picked something up off of the floor for at least a week to see if it will swept up/picked up/vac'd up by someone other than yourself or the dog...

So true what you said in that post!! Thanks so much for sending the Practical Magic link- that was so kind of you! The pictures on the site are wonderful!!

Yep...I admit it...but when the week ends, I pick it up. Geez.

Chris said...

Yes, me too! I admit it! I have tried to ignore items many times in the hope that someone else will pick them up. In fact I'm doing it right now :-) And they are staring right at me :-)

PAT said...

Yes, I admit it!

Hope your punkin' vine grows! Some of our best pumpkins have come from a single seed dropped by the kiddos, while making jack o lanterns, in the fall!! There is hope for yours, too!

I love those white pumpkins.

Yes, I've done the same and I think both dh and dd know I'll cave and pick it up. :-(

Love white pumpkins! Hope you have a bounty of white beauties.

Hi Mrs.G, I so love white pumpkins however, that little package is too darn cute to tear up and open!...

That sounds like something my dog would do! If I leave a newspaper out he chews it up!

Suzanne said...

Well, I've tried, but I live with 3 (if you Don't count the dog)...so we wouldn't be able to walk through the house unless I went around picking up (and throwing things away, when I'm in a spiteful mood), lol.
Hope your little pumpkin seed multiplies!

Nickie said...

Yup. i admit it! I've not picked stuff up to see how long it stays....


untill I can't take it anymore and end up picking it up. I've attempted this with dishes in the sink as well, but stinky dishes in the sink for a week is NOT a good thing.

it's all about the journey...
