Like I said previously, I never carved a pumpkin in my life so that just had to be done. I dressed for the occasion by bringing out my Viking princess hair and fixed some Bloody Marys (with Finlandia Vodka, naturally). It’s a healthy drink too, right? Here’s the story:
Tomato juice is a great source of many vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A and C. One cup of tomato juice will give you about 74% of your daily recommended value of vitamin C and 2% of your vitamin A.
Other vitamins in tomato juice are K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, potassium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous.

The main organic compound in the tomato is lycopene. Lycopene gives tomato the red color and has been found to have antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. So yay me! I’ve combined living healthy and getting buzzed!

The mad pumpkin slasher strikes. This scene could very well be from a horror movie…
Enjoying the warm evening out with my pumpkins.
While waiting for the 31st… Stay warm.


  1. Sulla on huippublogi! Vastikään jotenkin tänne löysin..:) ja pumpkineiden kaiverrus on kivaa, tosin omasta kokemuksesta aikaa 10v.

  2. Heippa Linda, kiva kun loysit mut! Meilla oli tosi hauskaa kurpitsoja kaiverressa, ja Bloody Maryt ei tietystikaan pilanneet tunnelmaa ollenkaan… Tasta voisi tehda jokavuotisen tradition tasta eteenpain. Ehka kutsua enemman porukkaa kylailemaan ensi kerralla.Hauskaa viikkoa ja tule kaymaan uudestaan!

  3. Tulin juuri ensimmäistä kertaa tänne kyläilemään eli heippa vain!

    Hassua, kun näin nämä kuvat kurpitsoista, muistin samantien nähneeni viime yönä unta, jossa kaiversin kurpitsoja! 😀

  4. Heippa Marika!

    Kiva kun ehdit piipahtaa kylaan! Mullakin tuli tanaan Deja vu kun kaveri lahetti kuvan uusista hiuksistaan otsiksella ja musitin heti etta nain unta jossa leikkasin itselleni otsatukan. 🙂

  5. […] I cannot believe it’s almost the end of September! It’s been quite hot here lately and I hope it continues for a while because I’m not ready for winter (even if it’s California winter). It does not feel like fall at all, although I did see an ad for a huge pumpkin patch the other day when I was riding my bike to the gym. And I just submitted an article for an online magazine for fall cocktails (with all the fall favorites like cranberries, apple cider, pumpkin spice and cinnamon). Looking forward to visiting it and having our annual pumpkin carving party. […]
