grrr arrrggh  
Second time the tree-trimmers have stood me up! Tomorrow. They better freaking come tomorrow or they can kiss all that money goodbye and I'll give it to someone else. Unfortunately not trimming is not an option - in the big winds last week we lost two branches and if we have any rain we're likely to lose more this winter. Stupid eucalyptus trees like to "self-prune". Which would be fine if we didn't have to park our cars or put our house under them...

Plus, I think I'm coming down with something. Too many kids at Harvest Festival last friday plus Halloween. There's probably not a germ I didn't touch somewhere in there. Luckily it's pretty mild so far. *knock wood*

Speaking of Halloween, I have two mighty awesome pumpkins to show off:



First, Kidlet drew this truck himself. Punched the design and sawed it himself. The only thing I did was widen the lines a bit to let more light out.

Second, I did this from someone else's pattern of Draco, from Dragonheart

Not as cool as the Black Pearl I did a few years ago, but not bad, especially considering how quickly I did it.



A couple pics of kidlet coming later.

thanks! It's fun each year.

Dangit!

Teaches me to make icons in the wee hours of the morning.

Awesome pumpkin designs! Would you know, I've never actually done one of those.

Awww. Cool! We had nowhere to put pumpkins this year. Sigh.
