i have been so focused on getting my biz up & running, on getting our costumes finished for hallowe'en, & a zillion other things - that i have totally ignored hallowe'en itself! no pumpkin carving, no crafting, no cooking pumpkiny goodness, no singing along with jack skellington, no quiet discussions of those who've passed, no parties, no harvesting... nothing mainstream, nothing spiritual.
well life decided to step in. yesterday my sewing machine went mad, then costume pieces weren't taking the black dye (later i realized i'd forgotten the salt - duh.) today my computer won't upload pics onto the blog.
i was about to have a very impressive tantrum when it hit me - i'm being handed a gift! the machine can be tended on thursday, i can do some sewing marathons to make up for a few days lost, everything's homeschooling, & the blog? well as i only have the one reader at the moment, i'm sure the lack of photos will not be the end of kats in the belfry as we know it.
so after i post this, i plan on puttering about the farm with thehobbit, helping him gently carve a design into our garden's one growing pumpkin, lunch while watching the nightmare before christmas, & then? we'll see where the day takes us... all in costume of course.
forced to let it all go, & focus on what matters most. how lucky am i?
~peace & blessed be.
