A sombre yet beautiful and peaceful gloom here pervaded all things ... the shade of the trees fell heavily upon the water, and seemed to bury itself therein, impregnating the depths of the element with darkness.
- Edgar Allan Poe :: from 'The Island of the Fay'
Still making an effort to enjoy the little things. The Halloween decorations are out for the first time in years. I even have a pumpkin that I plan on carving, if only to have the seeds inside for roasting.
I did get my leaves waxed, remember these from last week?
They're not strung yet and I may just leave them scattered around the house. They are stunning, each and every one of them (the paraffin worked just fine, don't you agree?).
I find myself picking them up and looking at them often. I think I'll enjoy them more if they're down where I can touch them instead of hung out of reach. I'm not sure yet.
I've chosen my reads for the next few weeks : Stephen King's The Shining and some of Edgar Allan Poe's short stories. Nothing like a little Poe when the wind is howling and the lights are flickering ~ thanks, Mother Nature, for setting the perfect mood this time of year to enjoy a scary story!
I'm just about done with my October monthly sock challenge socks and I've got yarn and pattern picked out for November. I'll share next week...I'm really excited about this pair!
Happy Halloween everybody!
