Anyway, Blogger appears to feel much better today. Maybe it was food poisoning.
And, I digress.
What I wanted to talk about was the fact that Halloween is only two days away! I'm ready for it. I have my costume for the contest at work (loving that job), our pumpkins have been dutifully carved, every free inch of my house is decorated in Halloween paraphernalia, and, I have already been approached by strangers in the supermarket, inquiring as to whether or not Hugh will be hosting his annual Haunted Porch (he is, fingers crossed).
I have only to dip caramel apples with the children (tonight or tomorrow night) and to break open the giant bags of Halloween candy purchased for the Trick-or-Treaters and we will be ready to go.
As an aside, this is the first year that I can remember that I have not had to return to the Hellmouth to pick up a new bag of Halloween candy following the eating of the originally purchased bag; I am so very proud of myself and my ability to resist the siren call of the mini Twix and bite-sized Three Musketeers.
Anyway, Halloween, right around the corner.
Round about the caldron go;
In the poison’d entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter’d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot!
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
