The fourth year of the stuffed pumpkin


Thanks, I think, to high school and college, there is something about four years that carries a particular significance when it comes to the passage of time.  I am a (gulp) adult now, out of school for more than four plus four years, and yet that particular time division still triggers something in my brain.  Thus, when I realized that this is my fourth year of  writing for Endless Simmer and my fourth stuffed pumpkin, as well as, for that matter, over four years of marriage, it seemed somehow significant.  It won't be long till Elijah is four, certainly no longer a baby, and then he'll go to high school, and maybe college, and....aaaaaaaaghhhhhhhhh. 

For now, let's just focus on the stuffed pumpkin, shall we?
