Well, friends, Hurricane Sandy is bearing down on the East Coast — and I’m not sure how long we’ll be able to keep power. In preparation for a crazy week, I’d like to wish everyone a very happy (early) Halloween filled with all your favorite edibles, and I hope this finds everyone on the East Coast warm and safe.
Spence and I already hit a friend’s Halloween party on Saturday, so at least I got some of my goblin-filled goodness in before the worst hit. As I type this Monday afternoon, the wind is just starting to pick up and leaves are being whipped from the trees. I’m so glad we captured the fall foliage two weekends ago . . . needless to say, those trees are bare now.
Our look was very, um, “steampunk”-inspired — and I’ll be perfectly honest in saying I really didn’t know what steampunk was until Spencer and I started dating. I enjoyed the vampy quality of the attire, though, and felt quite fancy with my little fascinator. I can see this getting broken out for a Ren Fest down the road. Maybe.
Well, the wind is picking up . . . and I’m not sure what the rest of the week will hold, so I’ll sign off for now. As long as the power holds, I’m planning to do some cleaning, baking, crocheting and reading before I figure out whether I can get to the paper tomorrow. I’d actually taken today off, so I didn’t have to worry about getting into work, but tomorrow? Eh, a whole new ball game. No rest for the media.
And since Halloween has been “postponed” until Saturday, our local trick-or-treaters will get whatever Tootsie Pops and Kit-Kats and miniature Snickers I haven’t tackled while stuck inside.
I really can’t be left alone with these things.
