Halloween Week

I'm always both happy and sad as we enter this final week of October.   It's my favorite month.  Gone are the days when you start out wearing a sweater and end up wishing you'd worn shorts.  Gone are the  football games that don't require gloves and coffee-- and next up is Thanksgiving and then Christmas-- both great happy events but they lead to those bleak dog days of winter which find me wishing for the sweltering heat of August.
