It's been practically a blog-free week for me, since I've been battling a cold and have just felt lousy. I'm better today, but am trying to get caught up on stuff that I didn't accomplish this week.
I did finish my Halloween banner, just in time for the trick-or-treaters that came on Thursday night. It was easy to make, using felt, fusible webbing (too tired to sew), quilt binding and pinking shears.
Our town is weird. For some reason related to college students and supposedly out-of-control partying, they always schedule trick-or-treating for an odd night, like Thursday the 29th. I personally haven't seen any wild revelry, but apparently our town used to have a Halloween parade that got the kibosh when the students got out of hand.
Anyway, we had a good turnout for trick-or-treating, and I ran out of candy a little early. Is it just me or are kids greedier than usual? I had to tell quite a few to just take one or two, rather than handfuls.
We also made it to the library party this week, and had a fun time.
I just love the Keith Haring (he's from our town) inspired chairs our library has.
The children's librarian read a cute Halloween version of Goodnight Moon called Goodnight Goon, which was cute. We read Goodnight Moon before bed (I find it to be a depressing book, oddly) so SoJo liked the changed version.
Of course, he was more interested in the balls from the pumpkin bowling game.
Hope you and your little ghouls and monsters have a fun Halloween!
