Happy Halloween. Muffy got dressed for the Holiday a few days ago and wanted to be in that day's post but I told her she had to wait. She has a very adorable "velvet" cat costume and her very own little cat. I don't think she'll be trick or treating tonight. Usually it's only the Twins who come by to show off this year's costume. They might be getting a dollar bill in an orange envelope or a chocolate chip LARABAR. But not sure the cashew/date bars are child friendly. If I had orange paper I might try an origami pumpkin. I should have asked my son to make me two. I might look for some Beanie Babies in the Attic.
I looked at the candy section and- for two small boys? I did not want to buy a bag of ick candy. And then eat the rest of it myself. Last year I gave them the entire bag- momma was not pleased.
I sewed the very busy French-ish fabrics into four squares and have a few circles to hand appliqué today. Or tomorrow. Did a load of wash. Just finished. And now bracing myself to drag out the central vac hose and vacuum the house. The hose.......stiff and gets kinked up and well, it's a real workout. I'm thinking of standing in front of the Swiffer display at Monday grocery shopping and choosing dusting pads. I have many floor cleaning pads and squirt solutions. But never delved into the dusting components. The house is dusty.
I have not liked any of the books in my pile so far. Geez. I really hate when that happens. And no library visit until Tuesday. Three days. Most of the books came off the Staff Picks shelves and usually they do not steer me wrong. I still have five in the pile. One of them has to be good- right?
The closer we get to Tuesday.......the tension is getting overwhelming. And it won't be over on Wednesday. It feels like it will never end. It just feels so impossibly...not American. I might need a pan of Brownies.
