halloween 2018!

Happy Halloween!! I hope your day is magical!! I wanted to pop in and show these delightfully pretty cards I got from The Moon Journal - you must go see her beautiful shop! Cards, calendars, art work, all of it fabulous. What you are seeing here is the Mini Moon Deck, but I really long for the full deck of Moon cards which have the most beautiful floral designs.

I can tell you right now - the 'Breathe' affirmation card - that's one I should look at DAILY.

I also really love the card that shows the different moon phases, do you see it up there? Balsamic Moon! I've never heard of that one before, so cool.

Do you collect pretty stones or semi-precious rocks? We've been collecting since Julia was a tiny tot. We have a lot of pink quartz and amethyst, because those are our favorites.

Tonight we're having pizza - I used to try to make a whole Halloween fancy dinner but realized that the kiddo CARES NOT about food, and just wants to eat in five seconds and then hit the road, so now we throw a frozen pizza in the oven and call it a day.

OH - so usually during the whole month of October my husband likes to watch scary movies, and I used to but my tolerance has decreased in recent years - the real news is scary enough! - but we did watch 'The Haunting of Hill House' - WOW. I haven't been so impressed with a show in a long long time. It's scary, but not off-putting in my opinion - really it's a melancholy portrait of the breakdown (and renewal) of a family. The script works much like a stage play - there are tons of long monologues and long takes, and I really adored the whole thing from start to finish.

And hey 'Downton Abbey' lovers! I just discovered last night that about 10 years ago, Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens (Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley) were in a BBC version of 'The Turn of the Screw'. We started watching last night and I liked it! It got late so we had to hit pause on the last 20 minutes, so we'll finish that up this evening after Julia goes to bed. It's available free on Amazon Prime.

What are you up to today/tonight? I think before I go to bed, I'll open up 'The Night Circus' randomly and read wherever I open the book. I practically know it by heart. My assertion is that there never was, and never will be, a more perfect book for fall time reading.
