Happy what’s-left-of-Halloween to you!  It is just after 8pm on Halloween as I am typing this post.  It was a last minute decision to write this post, as was my decision to carve this jack-o-lantern.  With my girls no longer of trick-or-treating age, the threat of Hurricane Sandy and our Murder Mystery party this past weekend, regular ol’Halloween kind of took a back seat around here.  I just bought candy for potential  trick-or-treaters  yesterday and then I remembered we had no pumpkin to carve and enjoy the roasted seeds.  I carved this fellow at 5pm this evening.  We’ve had a total of 3 trick-or-treaters tonight.

Because of this lack of creatures of the night ringing the doorbell, I’ll be eating far too much of this over the coming days:

Each time I walk through the kitchen, I am popping these in my mouth:

Perhaps a little better than all the candy, right?

Hurricane Sandy turned out not to be a Frankenstorm at all in these parts, for which I am extremely grateful. Our power stayed on the whole duration of the storm and we just had a rainy, windy day off from school.  Trying my best to send positive thoughts to those left in need by Sandy.

How did you weather storm my reader friends?  How was your Halloween?

Sweet Relief – Picture Fall, day 29

Well, I’ve broken the streak again this month.  My creative juices felt tapped out yesterday afternoon by the time I got around to considering my photo prompt:  Capture a little something sweet today; whatever it is that tickles your taste buds.  It isn’t really an excuse, but this past week had me helping my girls figure out and do make-up  for their Halloween parties at the dance studio.  That doesn’t sound like much, but each of my girls goes to the studio on three different days each week, and would either of my girls be content to wear the same costume all three days?  Of course not!  This is the one time of the year that I am thankful for the piles of old dance costumes that reside in this house.  But I digress.  I had no ideas whatsoever for how to make a picture of candy or cookies or the like something out of the ordinary and worthy of photographing last night.  Meghan suggested, “How about you carve the pumpkin and have it barfing up piles of candy?”  I chuckled at the idea, but after dinner had been cleaned up last night I wanted nothing more than to crash on the couch and relax.  Today, however, was a different story!

Picture Fall, day 29

Because of this photo prompt, I’ve had this little diddy playing in my head for the last 24 hours:
