“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are all excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”
We are Halloween people and usually we start our Halloween preparations at least a week or more before the big event. This year we’ve been so busy it was tempting to just carve a single pumpkin and buy candies – c’est tout! We just can’t do it! We even tried to put out just a few things – can’t do that either. Wednesday is Halloween and we’re just getting everything up tonight only to be taken down in a couple of days. In the midst of all the preparations, my oldest decides to make chocolate chip cookies for the gang that’s coming over Halloween night. I’m thinking there will be enough candy and chocolate bars to last us until next year! He insisted and rather than complain about the mess – I said go for it! Tomorrow I’ve got one big pot of chilli to cook and a house to clean. I can leave the dust because dust and Halloween go together. Lots of work but look at those smiles, makes it all worth it…Wishing everyone has a safe and fun Halloween..

Luckily, this mixture is neither boring nor unpalatable. In fact, you…
