I love October! The weather starts to cool down and I can start wearing layers and light sweaters and all the closed-toe shoes that have been sitting in my closet collecting dust. The leaves start showing their true colors and the air is crisper. My paleness becomes acceptable once again.
But, best of all is Halloween! When scary becomes main-stream. When it’s okay to be a little weird and decorate with skulls. I started putting out my Halloween decorations last Saturday. It’s fun going through the box and unearthing all the things I forgot I bought at the after Halloween sales last year. My living room is gradually becoming appropriately creepy. I don’t do the faux hay bales and the cute smiling pumpkins. Nuh, uh. I got the skeletons, the candles, the spiderwebs and tons of spiders.
I brought one spider to work to play with Ball. I think they are becoming fast friends.
