except for this one…
This book was just irresistible to me. The book’s description says
” Kathleen O’Dell deftly weaves magic, secret identities, evil villians, unlikely heroes, and the wonder of friendship into a mystery adventure with all the charm of an old fashioned classic.” I can’t wait to read this one.
This is another book that I want to read.
Three peculiar looking girls from an all girls school have to help save a town from a curse.
There are disappearing boys and detention and a mystery.
This book finds Flavia hard at work in her laboratory trying to concoct a potion to trap St. Nick. It is a Christmas Flavia de Luce story.
Halloween always involves some issues with leftover candy.
We probably did not have over 30 visitors but they staggered their visits from 6 ish until after 8 ish…so it was a your turn…no my turn…up and down kind of night.
Not horrible but I really do wish all trick or treating was on a Saturday in the afternoon.
The town I grew up in always had it that way with a huge bonfire at the end of the day and donuts and apple cider for everyone. Contests for all different kinds of costumes and a parade that we always marched in. That town still does this. We would walk all over town in our costumes with my dad and get tons of candy. I think that when I was little it was big candy bar trick or treating. And certain neighbors gave out popcorn balls and homemade cookies and we would get money from our aunts and uncles who lived in town, too. My sister was giving out treats on Saturday and getting ready for the bonfire later that night.
It is nice when some things stay the same.
We gave out handfuls of candy nearer to 8 o’clock but we still have a huge bowl left. I already ate a Tootsie Roll Pop, a Reese’s peanut butter cup and a Snickers…just because it was there.
And tasted really good.
Tonight we are having Greek Salad for dinner to make up for eating Halloween candy.
It is all prepped and in the refrigerator…ready to go.
It is crisp, cold, full of veggies and no chocolate is involved.
Unless we have one small bar for dessert.
