Happy Halloween!

Our livingroom mantle

A safe, fun, and spooky day to all of you!

It's a beautiful Autumn day here at The Perfectly Imperfect Homestead, and with it being a Saturday to boot, I'm not sure how many or how few trick-or-treaters we'll end up with later today. (Every year is different than the last - it's been consistently inconsistent over the past decade). Mom will end up coming over with her trick-or-treater treats since many don't make the trip down to her end of TPIH despite my sending them to her, and hopefully we'll convince her to stay for dinner, I've got a chicken baking in the oven and it smells delish! 

I've got the Michael Myers Halloween movies marathon running in the livingroom and the candy dish is ready by the front door! Tonight I'll leave out some special treats for loved ones who've passed on, in keeping with my Irish roots.

What are your plans for today?

PS: I'm so not ready to say farewell to October yet! (insert wailing emoticon here) I once saw something that said, "Halloween is my Christmas" and to a large degree, it's true. I realize Autumn continues once October and Halloween are over (although I do have to remind myself of that constantly), but, the sadness most feel when Christmas and New Years are over, I'm already feeling and will continue to feel it deeply this evening and the next few days. 

Anyhoo, enough of that, I'm going to enjoy the rest of the day. 

Best witches!
