Thanks for the encouragement. I posted Venting on a Happy Note at 6:15 or so last evening, and there are already 8 posts.

I am so mad at myself! I have been getting the pumpkins done slowly but surely. I got the 4th one done this evening. I had been saving the seeds, but I decided to go ahead and roast the ones I had now and do the rest later. I had a lot of really nice looking pumpkin seeds. Yes, I said "had."

I saw two pans sitting there, one a regular metal pan and the other a disposable one. I decided to use the disposable one. I went to put them in the oven, and suddenly the disposable pan collapsed and almost all the pumpkin seeds dumped all over the bottom of the oven. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. The oven needs cleaning, and my knees and back hurt tonight, so I couldn't spend a lot of time cleaning them out, so I decided to count it a loss and use the vacuum cleaner to clean them out. To add insult to injury I accidentally attached the hose to the blower side and blew half of the seeds to the back of the oven.

The rest of the pumpkin seeds will definitely be done in a regular metal pan!

That D@#$%^ Murphy, and to get the double whammy of blowing them all over! At least you can laugh about it and probably will from now on every time you think or hear about pumpkin seeds.

Big hugs coming your way. Poor baby.
