“But I remember more dearly
autumn afternoons in bottoms
that lay intensely silent
under old great trees”

Happy first day of October Y’all!
This morning I woke to my fella bringing me coffee in my Nosferatu mug, which he bought for me years ago, in bed. I immediately kicked up my feet knowing that today it would feel like Halloween. I love this time of year when Halloween is all around us. My fella had a few errands to run and said he would take me to find Halloween if I accompanied him as his buddy. “I want a pumpkin muffin and a Slurpee!” thanks to all the wonderful Instagram posts with the new Slurpee Jack-o-lantern cups.
I pulled out a favorite handbag (glow in the dark thread was used for the web!) and off we went to run errands. We spotted ridiculous things that I do not need but oh-don’t-they-look-amazing in Home Goods; we ate bat cookies (we always pick the wonky ones because who is going to love them more than us!) and pumpkin brownies; we found the Slurpee cups (which I plan to use as a small vase because Slurpees are kind of like drinking sugar and if I’m going to get a ton of calories from a liquid, I would prefer it have a little kick if ya know what I mean but I did drink the sour apple today); and, soon we’re off to a birthday party for one of my spooky friends (hence the cute wrapping paper).
