Witches & Wizards & Skeletons

It is Halloween. (Local Time is 2000) There are a few dressed up, some decorated doors, and a party planned for late tonight.  As you can probably guess, I am not going to stay up for it.  There is also the slight matter of packing since we disembark tomorrow.

I ran into the Witch & Wizard (Warlock? – he wasn’t sure and deferred to his wife) at dinner.  They had picked up costumes in Hawaii just to be able to do something for Halloween. I have shared several of the decorated doors before.

But the best was the slightly older than 2 young man running around in a black pajamas featuring a glow in the dark skeleton. He was excited to be out with his mum handing OUT candy. She was dressed like a scarecrow complete with turnip head and toted a rather large plastic pumpkin full of lollypops.

I am off to toss my last couple of things in a duffle and head to bed.

Oh – I finished the Funky Peacock….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
