October brings to mind many things for me – birthdays of beloved family members and close friends, and festivals – so many of them! While the kids start planning their Halloween costumes in earnest, I plan on the sweets and snacks I think I will make for Deepavali (or Diwali – the festival of lights)- think being the operative word here! With Navaratri barely having waved goodbye to us, we have Diwali calling us forward followed by Halloween of course. And it is fun to celebrate everything – the lights and the costumes (and the sweets) all make this month spectacular indeed.
So to celebrate the same, here is something sweet – a $10 Amazon Gift Card to pick out a treat for yourself.

October meant mostly clear weather back home (compared to the summer with its tons of thunderstorms). Pretty leaves all around (in the country, so lots of hills and trees with few people). Great stargazing weather 🙂 And great weather for 4-wheeler riding!

I think the spookiest book I've read is A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. I loved it!
One of my favorite Halloween memories is from when I was in middle school. The Blair Witch Project had recently come out, so my mom and me decided to run with it. We made a body out of tomato cages, put a black dress on it, stuffed newspaper into the arms and shoulders, added black gloves for hands, and put a wig stand (the Styrofoam-face variety) on top for a head. We draped her with an old cape from when I'd gone as a witch years before, tacked on an old, green mask I'd made in art class on the wig stand, and put a black wig (also taken from a previous costume) on top. Then we pulled a witch's hat low over the face, and set her out by the door.
We didn't stop getting compliments on it all night!
Any book by Stephen King.
Fav books are It by Stephen King and First Days by R. Frater.
