Step 1: Do What You Do Everyday. Step 2: Add Ice and Hail

We had plans yesterday evening to trick or treat at our nature center. I bought the tickets long ago. We were ready. We’d go from animal station to animal station and through the Treewalk in the woods collecting candy and ending with a party. My kind of thing. Then yesterday kicked off with black skies, thunder and lightening?…in 30 degrees? We debated whether to even make the long drive and as we were finally and reluctantly headed out the door in our warm Halloween Jammie suits, I got the email it had been rescheduled. Because, ya know, trees were falling due to winds and ice at the park and more storms on the way and whatthehell are ice pellets?! So…change of plans!

I’m honored! This year, she actually made it through decorating cupcakes with me. Last year she made two, then ran off to the neighbors house.

I bought these candy corn men because I figured they would be a phenomenal and hilarious fail. Knowing I’d have to mix and separate three different colors, three different amounts and somehow build a graduated friggin LOG of dough into a somehow triangle shape and still slice it properly…add google eyes. Come on! I didn’t do too bad except I didn’t have butter sticks and used regular butter. Which equalled dough too wet to “stack”. So? I added tons of flour and now they taste like a washcloth. My daughter said, “they’re satisfying if you want something to chew on!”

This is a collection of little ‘knit’ hats she’s been making for her classmates. She DIY’ed them off YouTube and plans to have one to give every friend for winter. They are collecting on top of my desk for now. Tiny, happy ghost supplied by me and Model Magic.

Trick or treating with my ‘lil Pikachu at the Rec party on Friday night.

…Because the rest of the house is decked out. Why not bathrooms?

Late night basement Domino building ‘competish, while binge watching Super Monsters and the house got pummeled with ice and hail.

And, I ended with this. I don’t use this one anymore because it makes me more sad now than it does happy. Thanks a lot Smell Triggers. 😩 Nevertheless, helped bring a long, cold week to a peaceful end.

        1. …that must be the halloween magic at play. I slaved over a sweaty triangular log of chunky dough with colors that didn’t want to adhere to one another!
