roasted the seeds last night. Of course I left the costume preparation until the last minute and was up late last night altering the vampire cape so it wouldn't drag on the ground. The witch hat disappeared for a while, but was found again, in the closet of all places.
Almost a year ago, we wandered through a store and found costumes for almost nothing and thought we were so clever for buying next years costumes when they were cheap. I managed to out-smart myself in all of this however. We purchased a cute little duck costume for the little one, but I had to put it away because the big kids kept trying to squeeze into it. Now, it's Halloween and I can't seem to remember where I put it away exactly. Aren't I clever? Wherever it is, it's safe.
We enjoyed a very nice October, but the nights have gotten very cold. I harvested everything I could out of the garden and cleaned it all up. It felt good to finally get some order to the jungle and be done for the winter. I had planned on putting in a fall garden, but I just never got to it.
Growing up, we always had a snow storm on Halloween, but it doesn't look like we'll get a storm tonight. Hope you have a happy, warm and safe Halloween!
