Sunday Salon

How great is it to have Daylight Savings Time fall on Halloween? I mean, you get to stay out late because it's not a work/school night, on a night full of fun things to do, and then sleep in an extra hour the next day?

And it was a perfect fall day- sunny and in the 60's, perfect for showing off that costume and walking around collecting candy.

I hope everyone who celebrates had a great Halloween yesterday. My husband and I dressed up in Star Trek costumes and passed out candy at my inlaws' house in the 'burbs after spending the afternoon carving pumpkins. Jeff is an amazing pumpkin carver and manages to outdo himself every year. Check out this year's pumpkins- a scary

owl, and then, because we're a reading family, a pumpkin carving of Edgar Allan Poe. How cool is that?

Afterward, we went to a local jazz club to hear

one of our friends perform with his band. What a terrific day!

Today? Today I'm writing. Like, not blog stuff but writing stuff. I joined NaNoWriMo and while I don't expect to be the next Faulkner I think it will be a good experience for me. I also just joined a writing workshop my husband has been in for a couple of years now and today is my first meeting with them. Wish me luck!!!

I hope everyone has a great Sunday. You can read more Sunday Salon posts here.
