My brain needs a break so here are some Halloween celebratory things happening in my life.
First, the inflatables. Over the years, I have acquired a green Christmas tree, a very large owl (named Xavier) and a skeleton unicorn (named Calliope) For Halloween, I have Xavier and Calliope up. I’m not a monster – the tree will go up on November 1. Between these critters and the heated cat beds and the heated water bowl, the backyard is a veritable web of extension cords.
Second, pumpkin cookies from Giant Eagle. I <3 these cookies. And my wonderful nibling bought me a batch for my birthday last week.
Third, pumpkins. We grew one in our compost pile and grabbed two at an event on Sunday so we have a nice little “rule of three” going on the stoop.
Fourth, we have tickets to Scarehouse for Sunday evening. It has been too long since we’ve been there so I am quite excited. We will absolutely mask up to be on the safe side.
Fifth is trick-or-treat. I have the candy hidden away. I have the pumpkin bowls ready to roll including the non-candy items (pencils and little duck ghosts.)
Six are the movies. I watched Hocus Pocus and Hocus Pocus 2 yesterday and today. I’ve never watched them before. The sequel was enchanting. Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown will be this weekend (we have Apple+) and I’m excited for my annual viewing of The Paul Lynde Halloween Special as well. Our friend Anne recommended that we watch Arsenic and Old Lace as well.
Seven would be seasonal festive activities. We went to a vegan Halloween festival this past weekend. That was different. I did not like the main food, but I liked my friends specific dish a lot. And the event.
I’m working on a DIY Halloween decoration, but it remains to be seen if I’ll complete it. I’m trying.
