It was a good Halloween. It started out with my going to my parents’ house to rake the remaining (and many) leaves in their yard in preparation for the inevitable snow. I, along with Charlotte, Pinky and Paenney, worked hard to get Mom and Dad’s yard cleaned up as well as we could.
I went home with some aching muscles, only because I’m so out of shape. It wasn’t a hard job, and it certainly didn’t take very long, but I got home and immediately took to my chair to rest my weary bones before the trick-or-treaters came to call.
Our house was somewhat festive with our little jack-o-lanterns adorning the front entry of our house.
We (Husby) decided that if we didn’t have enough candy for all the trick-or-treaters we would hand out some of the very many soy sauce packets we’d accumulated with our many take-out Chinese dinners. Luckily it didn’t come to that.
Nine o’clock rolled around and we turned out the lights, blew out the candles housed in our delightfully carved pumpkins, and called it a night. Throughout the evening we had about thirty-five little goblins visiting our house looking for treats – plenty of chocolate for the lot of them, and some left over for Husby and me. The soy sauce will remain in the fridge until I decide to make my own Chinese food rather than ordering out.
I hope everyone had a marvelous Halloween and that you’re all ready for autumn to give in to the winter sure to follow.
