We celebrated several family birthdays last weekend over Zoom, including mine. We do this every few months, for all the birthdays in those months. We’re a family of readers, so all but one of my gifts were books, which made me very happy. (You can see them down below.) The other was a Rhiannon Giddens album, which also made me happy!
Today I’ll be splitting my time between getting ready for trick-or-treaters, and working. I hadn’t done any of the Halloween prep as of Saturday dinner time, including carving the pumpkin, so I’ve got a fair bit to do. I know some of the kids won’t be masked again this year, so I will fill some treat bags that they can pick up outside, instead of coming to the door.
What do you have planned this Halloween? Whether you’re watching a spooky movie, curling up with a good book, or enjoying an evening trick-or-treat, I hope you get into the <i>spirit</i> of the evening!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread Nine Coaches Waiting (Mary Stewart) which I last read 15 or 20 years ago, I think. I’m rereading Nora Roberts’s Cousins O’Dwyer series, which I seem to reread every October; I finished Dark Witch and Shadow Spell, and started Blood Magick. I am currently reading one of my library books, A Spindle Splintered (Alix E. Harrow); Mercedes Lackey’s Briarheart is next up, if I can fit it in before it’s due back to the library.
