Yeah, about that…
Beyond being one of the basic facts of life, the unexpected has definitely gone a long way toward being the theme for this year. So, I suppose I should not have been surprised when fate (and a wasp; long story) cancelled my Halloween plans.
Today was to be a short trek across the autumnal decorated countryside, followed by a much anticipated and very much needed visit with friends. Instead, it has become a quiet day hobbling around at home, windows full of gloom, dreary skies, and a threat of snow. I can’t say that I am happy about this development, but I am working my way towards content.
Though the air is too cold and damp to carry the essence of crisp fall leaves, the scent of yeasty bread dough and pumpkin roasting in my kitchen sort of make up for it. I am rounding out the day working with some lovely fiber, maybe a bit of sewing, and then snuggling up in a spooky blanket with my e-reader.
All in all, the day has not been anywhere near as festive as I’d wanted, but it has been good nonetheless. Here’s hoping your day is/was fun, entertaining, or at the very least, peaceful.
Happy Halloween and Blessed Samhain everyone!
