Autumn comes to the neighborhood:
Witches, ghosts, and jack-o-lanterns:
I finished knitting hats for the guild service project, socks, and a new witch gnome for the Halloween decor:
We flew to Washington DC to visit our daughter and hike in the Shenandoah Mountains (next blog post). We returned just in time to greet our neighborhood trick-or-treaters from our porch for the first time in a few years, in the pouring rain this year. I even carved a (two-sided) pumpkin.
And I took note of the annual witch paddle in the Willamette River (photo credit to the Oregonian online). Someday I hope to see it in person.
