Day Thirty-One: Happy Halloween and The End

Happy Halloween! It's the end of the month which means I MET MY CHALLENGE GOALS!!! I am so proud of myself! It's been fun, a little pressed for interesting subject matter but, I kept on typing. So proud.

What a fun day. I love doing craft markets and it's all about meeting and chatting with new people for me. Naturally, I like talking about tea but, to be frank and those who know me know this, I'll chat about pretty much anything and get such energy from meeting new people.

Unlike other years, this year I did not put Halloween treats on my table. I didn't want the temptation and I wanted the focus to be on tea and not for any children to be trick or treating at the table. Too many breakable objects for that. I got to meet lots of new wonderful people who share a love of tea and introduce a few people to the wonders of matcha so it was a great day followed by a great evening.

As you can imagine, excitement was high by the time I got home. DH had a lovely supper made but it was still hard to get any real food into the boys before they went out trick or treating.

Because I was gone all day, DH also looked after the last minute Halloween decorating and pumpkin carving. I think he did a grand job.

Nice to have a fake rat versus real ones.
Buddy needs some treats. Badly.
The boys LOVE putting out these creepy crawlies. They creep me out.
Despite the fact that DH couldn't find the pumpkin carving kit that I've lost somewhere in this mess of a house, the pumpkins turned out great.

I love this little ornament I picked up in Florida years and years ago when we went with our friends and god-children.

And here's is the loot from just our street from just ONE bag! Our neighbours are so generous and the boys had a wonderful time.

Happy belated Halloween to everyone because, yes, my last post of the challenge is late. I fell asleep on the couch after the last trick or treater left the front steps. It has been a great month and I can't thank you enough for joining in with me.

Now I'm onto another writing challenge. Check out NaNoWriMo. I'll be working towards 50,000 words this month. Wish me luck!
