- There were only two Trick-or-Treaters last Friday at my house - smiling teenage girls who came just as I was getting home at 6:30pm. And that was it! I'll take the rest of the candy to my volunteer organization's candy basket. Niece Carla, who lives in Turkey with her husband and daughter, great-niece Mina, came up with a fun Halloween celebration for her almost five-year-old, since there is no Halloween in Turkey. They had a Halloween sleepover with two of Mina's young friends and had a Halloween candy hunt - just like an Easter egg hunt. A unique and fun way to get candy without Trick-or-Treating.
- Driving home last night from a meeting by the light of the Beaver Moon. Friend Janice said that is what the November 6 full moon is referred to, but she didn't know why. The Farmers' Almanac online tells me that the early Native Americans named it the Beaver Moon because "For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. This full Moon was also called the Frost Moon." It sure lit the sky up last night. So beautiful.
Here's what lights up my world today - it's the weekend! Yay! I hope your weekend is full of unexpected delight.
