Oh and let's talk about the fun Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling cards up above! The kiddo's Halloween treat that she begged for. She read my fortune, and I have to say, I thought it was fairly relevant to things going on in my life right now. (I can make myself believe anything!) I want a tarot deck too. Especially because I'm re-reading this. The short reading took a good 10 minutes to set up and interpret. The long reading basically uses every card in the deck and um, we won't be doing any long readings anytime soon.

Cool Book of the Week: A true Halloween treat - 'The Teeny-Tiny Woman - A Folk Tale Classic' by Paul Galdone. A story about a teeny tiny woman for the tinier tots. You all know this old English ghost fable right?? Truly a classic, but this new 2016 version is so charmingly rendered, it bears repeating. And I tell you, this short little wisp of a tale really gets to me, even as an adult. It's so jump-inducing at the end! Let's just say, the teeny tiny woman gets more than she expected when she finds an old bone in a graveyard, and intends to boil it for her supper of a teeny tiny pot of soup. But the bone objects! There's something no kidding around about this story, with that bone talking business, ha ha ha. Delightfully fun. Oh and check out these other folk tale classics collections from Paul Galdone - you might want to keep them in mind when holiday shopping, they are perfect gift material....
Food 52 Genius Recipes book, which I ADORE, for the dough and recipe, except I added more spices as per 'The Joy of Cooking' and I used a combo of brown sugar and white sugar in the filling. So worth it to roast your own pumpkin and make a pie that way!
