Need to get ready for Halloween


Our porch on a rainy, windy Halloween night.
The canvas pumpkin princess reigns supreme.
She is pinned at the bottom, and
stuffed with newspapers.  We 
recycle the paper.  She goes flat and
rolls up to be put away for next year
when the fun is over. 

I am so inspired by the artists I follow today. And by the gorgeous
fall day we've enjoyed.  Cold, a bit rainy, then sunny, and beautiful.
We are not ready for Halloween.  We have the pumpkins, but
Steven hasn't carved them.  But hey we've just put 
up our pumpkin princess.  I am not into the death's head,
gruesome part of Halloween, all the more unpleasant when
friends have died -- as is true of the past few years.

Still I love the spirit of celebration -- so we've bought the
candy, and we'll figure out a way to give it out safely. We will
be masked. 

The image today is from an earlier Halloween when we were
ready. Check. It will look a lot like that again.  We did buy
10 little pumpkins and put them along the walk.

Have a loving your life day.
