Today, after the tasks of utilitarian responsibility were managed, I made kitchen play. I made bread. I made pasta sauce. I cooked barley. I stepped outdoors time and again to make love with non-stop autumn drizzle that blessed my little acre. I made time to admire the most recent earthbound gifts to come my way ... three 1950s aprons from my mom which I will gently soak and hang out to dry when the rain stops ... and a salt and pepper shaker set from my friend Annie, a set that belonged to her grandmother who shared some semblance of my name.
I made time (as I will every day in October) to visit Mrs. B’s 31 Days of Halloween to enjoy the day’s blog links and enter in today’s give-aways. Today you could win a vampire style belly dance vest or a cute set of Skele-pins or a lovely full moon print from Spirit Fox Photography!
And tonight I'll be watching Revenge of the Creature and honoring the blessings of the October moon, full and ripe with melancholy madness, of a variety that only final harvests do offer.
