Today begins the last week of October and frankly, I can't believe it. The chill outside is exactly what you would expect for the days leading up to Halloween, but the build-up has left somehow. I am pretty sure it has something to do with NOT being in school or NOT having school-age children around. Whatever the reason, I'm considering the possibility that it might be okay that there will be no hoopla of school parties and coma-inducing, candy countdown. Randy stopped at a nursery and bought us some pumpkins last night and then discussed our plans for Friday, causing me to reflect on my expectations and child-like anticipations for most holidays. There might be a party at my house Friday night and there might not. I haven't decided yet. If there is, it will be an attempt at growing myself up, in holiday events as well as anything else I can swing.
Did you know that Celestial Seasonings (grand maker of herbal tea) is now making 'Dessert Teas'? They are a lot like dessert coffees, minus the caffeine and sweetener. Warm and yummy - just what I need on a chilly morning like this when I have yet to turn the heater on.
