|Halloween bat cookies!|
Happy Halloween - a little late. Hope everyone had an 'interesting' pandemic Halloween. We had our outside lights off for the first time in the 35 years we've lived in this neighborhood. There was probably little door to door activity, but I know some just put buckets of candy out front... and from Ring and Nest doorbells, one could see that most of the little ones took one piece, but some of the older teenage sized kids not only helped themselves, but came back several times for more.
We have twin 5 year old girls that live next door. Friday I had DH bring them a bag of goodies (Halloween coloring books, bat cookies, and candy)... and told their parents that we wouldn't be leaving our lights on this year. Our 7 year old grand daughter lives about 30 minutes away. I knew they were having her do her schooling online and that she wouldn't be trick or treating either. But she did get to wear a costume and walk around the neighborhood. Her dad said she had a good time.
Well, the 2020 election is this week. I have to say that I will be glad to have it over and done. I really hope it can be 'over and done' without problems. But the way things have been going, this may be too much to hope for.
The pandemic we are learning to live with. We are all in this together and together we will survive it (I hope so anyway). But I also hope that we won't have to continue to live with this political unrest. Our country is better than this.
That's all for me today. Stay safe!
