Halloween Part I

These are the costumes the kiddos donned for Trick-or-Treating at the downtown businesses on Friday afternoon. The stores participating posted black bats in the windows and the door-to-door candy grab was followed by a "Pumpkin Parade" down the main street. What it lacked in size and organization it made up for in hometown charm!




Tonight we'll do Halloween Part II which involves a free movie at Hull's Drive-In!

Easing Back In to Blogging

Starting back to blogging poses some of the same challenges for me that starting in the first place did. OK, so I don't have to worry about the naming part, but I am fighting the pressure to come back to it with a bang instead of just jumping in and getting going with a little spark.

The changing leaves are amazing right now. I could show you a picture, but we currently have two non-functioning cameras right now- one with over-exposure issues, the other totally kaput since a certain someone in the family dropped it. I'll give you a hint: it was a she and it's not me.

I am assessing my farm and garden successes and failures for the year. The big failure is that, for a number of reasons, I didn't get as much of the harvest preserved as I wanted. I am trying to keep guilt feelings at bay for all the produce that went to waste. Though not completely to waste as much of it became chicken food and the rest still adds organic matter back to the garden. Of course, that which merged into the chicken food cycle is contributing nicely to egg production. I know have a regular set of customers at our homeschool park day each week. This (the third week) will be a sell-out! Yay, a success!

It just might be coming soon... a real, live actual blog update. I have a few things brewing to write about- this after a spell of no inspiration whatsoever.

Wait for it...
