As this Halloween 2013 started off I had my witch's hat ready for market. G-son wanted me to wear it to school to drop him off but it was too tall to wear in the van.
Several customers wanted to buy my "witchy" earrings.
One lady commented how "becoming" my hat was on me ? I don't know if I should be flattered or what after that comment !!???
With Halloween on Thursday I was the only seller dressed in anything and no customers came in costumes, not even any kids ??   Oh well maybe it's too early in the day !!
I had a decent selling day but nothing like last week so I know this is just the beginning of my slow time.
After market I ran the errands and picked up baking supplies.  I made it home just ahead of hubbie around 4:45.
After we unloaded I ate an early supper while hubbie blew the leaves out of the gutters before the rain starts. It has been another warm day in the mid 60's but very cloudy and damp as the air is heavy with moisture in front of the coming rains.
With the air so heavy I decided not to even light up the Halloween lights that I had out. We didn't have any trick or treaters so it really didn't matter.  Maybe next year !!!
October is always such a busy month with three birthday's ( g-son and #1 son,great nephew Maddox) , the harvest of any remaining garden vegetables, extra busy market days with the changing of the leaves, fall festivals to attend and ending up with trunk or treat at church among a host of other activities, the month seems to fly by.
And this October has surely been a nice one weatherwise as no hurricane's bringing flooding rains or wind happened leaving this hurricane season so far the first in 45 years that the strongest storm was a catagory 1 storm. Temperatures have been really mild except for a couple hard freezing low to mid 20's nights which ended the growing season.
When October ends I always feel like winter is here. The month of November is lost in the frenzy between Halloween and Christmas activities. Sadly Thanksgiving gets kinda over-looked. I love Thanksgiving and refuse to put out any Christmas decorations until after we've celebrated our Thanksgiving.
To make a point this year I am going to end each November post with something specific that I am thankful for each day and hope that my thankfulness doesn't end with the passing of that month.
Tonight as I bid goodbye to October 2013 and look back over this month I see many many things that I am thankful for each day. God is so good all the time and blesses us even when we don't take the time to thank Him. May my heart be filled with thankfulness this next month.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi, We had a rough Halloween around here. Had rain and tons of high winds ALL DAY LONG and long into the night… It wasn't a good day for any Trick or Treaters to be outside… Kinda sad for them… We lost electricity about 6 times --and finally went to bed early since it was out for over 2 hours the last time. The wind was fierce….

Love your Halloween look --especially the earrings… CUTE.. And the witch's hat is perfect for the day!!!!

Hope you are having a good weekend. We have a beautiful day today --and it's much cooler.
