I just realized that we are officially in October or as I like to call it, Halloween Season. I adore Halloween. I love the decorations, the night, the smell in the air. I love anything that looks vintage Halloween. I think a lot of it stems from my love of my black cats (if you have ever met a black cat, they are the friendliest, most outgoing cats...I personally think that it is because they have to make up for having such a bad reputation. It is all so much fun and is truly one of my favorite times of the year.
This fall has been crazy for us and I really thought about pulling out my halloween decor at the beginning of September, but I thought that may be pushing it a bit too early, but then life got crazy and October has snuck up on me. How did that happen??? So today, I am giving the house a good cleaning so that I can decorate it in style (and so that my decorations don't get lost in all the clutter! :D )
I also got started on my Halloween cards. This is the first prototype...I love that saying "It's all about the shoes..." Mom bought me a halloween towel when she was in town that says that and I absolutely adore it so I had to "lift it" for my card.
That and I am making crepes! How about that for a bad segway?!? LOL! I have never made crepes before, but I adore them. When we lived in New Mexico (back when DS was a baby) we used to go to this little bitty mom and pop bistro (the kind where you can bring your own bottle of wine) and they served the most amazing crepes. I have always wanted to try making them, but worried about not being able to do it which would be simply crushing. But tonight is the night...we are having ham and mushroom ones for dinner and strawberrry, choc, cream cheese ones for dessert. Yum...my mouth is watering simply thinking about it. Wish me luck! I will try to remember to take pics so you can see my success or failure.
