Coming up on my favorite week. The week of Thanksgiving. The whole week speaks home to me. My cozy meter ramps up and I walk around with a silly smile on my face. Little lights, warm fires, lots of turkeys and autumn colors to add cheer around the house.
Recap time. October kept us busy. We gathered yard art and carefully tucked it away in my garden shed. Covered the furniture and mulched leaves. We start early so we do not get caught by an early snowstorm. I love this time. I feel like a settler getting ready for the long winter.We had a lovely celebration, just the three of us at our kids house, for my hubbys birthday. Em had decorated her backyard for fall. I made homemade chocolate cupcakes and we ordered pizza. We sat around the fire pit and chatted and laughed. So pleasant. And by the way, we still only gather with them due to covid. Still too big a risk, even being fully vaccinated and boostered to be around others. I know my kids are safe but I can't say that for others.
This Halloween was lovely! Prior to the big day my youngest came over and we made spiderweb cookies. The first time in 26 years. We had a wonderful time and they sure were good. We set up our display and had Trick or Treaters. I had put in little bags, a Pez toy and candy in little bags. We only had 9 kids come, but it still made us very happy and the world more normal. Our kids showed up in costume and helped us take down everything outside. We don't want to lose something to the little tricksters. A perfect end to my favorite holiday.
Onward to the weekend. Our big rivalry football game is this Saturday. But we will watch it from the comfort of our home. I have hot dogs, chips and peanuts at the ready. Go Griz! Always, Kit
