Man, the energy is just swirling around like the leaves! It's a gorgeous fall day, all golden and orange and crimson, and the weather is just right: cool enough to wear a jacket but not uncomfortable. Crisp air and the bounty of the harvest ready to be enjoyed.
A few weeks ago I went to the local farm stand and bought a baby pumpkin and gourds, all colorful as the leaves were all bright around me. There were giant gourds shaped like swans and other interesting shapes. :) Big pumpkins and little ones. Colorful Indian corn. Mums of red, orange, and yellow!
Houses are decorated on the street, some with autumn themes of cornstalks and scarecrows and pumpkins while others are spooky Halloween themes, complete with grinning Jack O'Lanterns and pumpkin lights! ;) One house has an inflatable Haunted House on their front lawn, LOL!
This is the week I usually see a flurry of submissions for my current Halloween Challenge, and while I may just be whistling past the graveyard this year, I bet something pops up in the trick-or-treat bag! *dances*
I've got a Witch cut-out on my front door and a vampire on the back. Lots of decorations and I have to get my plastic Jack O'Lantern handy and filled with candy! ;)
So get ready, boys and ghouls, for the magic in the air of the Night of Nights and the costumes of the kiddies as they shuffle through the fallen leaves up to the door and yell, "Trick-or-treat!" and the adults party hearty in full costume! :)
