The graveyard, the staring cat, yep. Sounds like ominous goings on to me.

So anyway I am watching Kicking Bird, Stands With Fist and Dunbar for the umpteenth time while listening to the thunderstorm going on outside.
Yesterday dead calm and sunny, tonight 40mph winds and storming. Such is life.

Guess TorT is over now. Some really cute costumes tonight! Unfortunately, the weather sucked, and the rain that we really needed back in July magically appeared today, all day.

I do remember snow on Halloween a few years back.

How weird is that, when the last of the little ghosts, goblins and princesses left, I turned off the porch light and put in Dances With Wolves, too. One of my most fave movies ever.

Tonigh we are hanging out and reading, hiding from the trick or treating. Not many kids in our neighbourhood, and unfortunately have some gang activity on a semi regular basis. Good night for it here though, the weather finally warmed up and the snow all melted :)

Of course this all means I am doing no cooking in the evening!
Katy, I'm so happy that you landed a job that sounds so nice. Makes having to get up and go in a lot easier. Now about those better-than-adequate meals you'll be having for lunch...does this mean poor Ollie is going to starve? Or will the dining hall let you do take-away for his supper.

Bramshill House is quite lovely, but too large for me to clean. Don't bother letting me know if it goes on the market.

..."that ghost"???

I'm heading to bed. I know it's not four-am but I NEED to get to sleep earlier. Been dying on my feet lately. Lack of sleep=terminal dumbness. 'Night!
