I mentioned in my last post that I was going to carve my pumpkin.
I did. I even roasted the seeds.
Because we live on a street with no sidewalks, and we have a 150 ft. driveway, we don't get any trick-or-treaters any more. When our kids were young and we knew other kids in the neighborhood, we would line the driveway with luminarias and get kids we knew. That was fun.
Then when we had grand kids, we would carve pumpkins together and take treats to them on Halloween. Now Isaac is away at college and Irene might do something with friends, but tricks and treats are over. I didn't even buy candy this year.
But I did buy a pumpkin, just for me. I still like to have fun.
I'll light our Jack-o-lantern just for us on Halloween evening.
During the day we have another activity. Some of you remember our family cider bees. We didn't go last year, even though there was one, because it was before vaccinations. This year it is being held on Halloween and we will be there. I spent time today preparing food to take: a Raw Apple Cake and a macaroni salad.
It's colder today but the sun is shining. The trees outside my home office window are glowing.
