Halloween exceeded my expectations. The trick-or-treaters were all adorable – even the obstreperous teenagers – and we had over 130 kids come by, which is about average. The magic trick boxes were a huge hit (I unloaded 50 of them), as were the card tricks and coloring books. The Snickers are all gone, and, well, I guess that’s it.
I like Thanksgiving, but any female reading this will agree, it’s hardly a holiday for women. I’m already thinking about the menu. Last year was a Honey Baked Ham instead of a turkey, and I might try that again because I loved not getting up at four a.m. to stuff a bird.
The stores are now filled with Christmas, and I’m on a mission to finish my Alphabet Collage Textile Book. I’m also working on a new needle punch project, a scarf for a Christmas present, more SOCKS that will never get done, and I’m trying my hand at making a pattern.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween. There’s only 364 days until the next one!
