Happy Halloween, Kiddos!
For those faithful readers, you'll realize that this was my costume last year (well, the mask and the binoculars anyway). This year, I've been insanely busy and the threat of hurricane Sandy had me an emotional wreck. I just about finished off an entire bottle of skullcap tincture trying to ease the stress. So, of course dressing up was the last thing on my mind.
Luckily, our neighborhood was spared. Out ceiling didn't cave in (like I thought it would) and the flimsy tree behind our deck didn't crush us in our sleep (like I thought it would). Somehow, the clouds just opened up and passed right over us. That's not to say that I don't have friends dealing with insane amounts of water in their homes and shops. When everyone is allowed back on the surrounding islands, I'll offer my assisstance in any way I can.
This morning when I woke up, everything seemed to be drying out and I finally started feeling human again. I decided to go outside for the first time in a few days and take some pictures so I could join Miss Indie's Halloween blog party. Mandy inspired me to look at the positive side of things today. I mean, it is a super cool holiday.
Later, I'm going to bake some candy corn cookies and make Dave watch family movies with me.
What are your plans?
