A day of projects inside and outside

I picked two of my pumpkins yesterday and cooked up the first one.  I decided today was a perfect day to make pumpkin cheesecakes.  I used an over-simplified recipe:
1 cup pumpkin
8 oz cream cheese
4 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp all spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
I was out of pumpkin spice.  But after it cooked, it could have used just a bit more seasoning.

Then I made coco-whips.  It is a strange texture but not a bad taste.  It is rather filling too.
4 TBSP butter
4 TBSP coconut butter
1 scoop Egg White Protein Powder - chocolate flavor
1 cup heavy whipping cream
I have noticed that my energy level is down.  I am going to substitute one of these for my afternoon snack.  In-place of a protein-carb combination, I am going to try protein-fat combination.  I need that energy in order to workout.
Yes, it is time to put the summer tools away.  My boyfriend told me that I needed to find a way to blow out the hose so that it wouldn't bust open over the winter.  Now why would I need to do that?  I just use centrifugal force.  As I wind the hose, some of the water rolls out as long as I keep the end sitting in the gutter.  Then when it is all rolled up, I secure the end and whip it with force stopping periodically stopping to make sure that the maximum amount of water has drained out.  
Done for the winter
That doesn't end my tasks for the day, I have some bulbs to plant in the garden and some weeding to do.  So I'd better get out in the heat of the day and get the work done.  (I am using those words lightly as it has barely hit 60 degrees today.)
