I hope your Halloween was more fun than mine was - we did not get a single trick-or-treater. It's so disappointing, as I love seeing the kids in their costumes. In previous years, Dug and I would sit outside on the steps and needless to say he was very popular! Tonight it was a little bit too chilly to sit out, but other than the little girl next door who always has a party with her friends, I didn't even hear any kids around.
I signed up for Gratitude Week, which I read about at Kat's blog. I figured it would be a way to focus on good things, but also help me slide into NaBloPoMo. I participated in NaBloPoMo last year, and though some days it was really a challenge, it was also a lot of fun and I enjoyed it.
Anyway, today I am grateful that I can still enjoy Halloween even without trick-or-treaters. I enjoy seeing ours (and others') decorations. I like seeing pictures of kids, adults, and pets in costumes of all kinds. It will be a nice treat to have some candy to eat, since all of ours is left over (we didn't buy that much, but it's still all here). In a world where plenty of people can't celebrate Halloween even if they wanted to, or where having anything at all to eat, much less leftover candy, is a struggle, I know that I am a lucky person, and I am grateful for that.
Farewell, October. Tomorrow we're on to November, to see what it brings.
