I am spending the day packing up all my Halloween doodads and getting out the turkeys. I got this far on the big Halloween sampler.
I got this far on the little one. Both are being tucked away and new autumn ones are being started as soon as my fabric gets here.
Last night The Mister and I sat all by our lonesomes with a big bowl of candy that is still here untouched. Even I didn't want anymore. I am candied out. He carved a pumpkin and.....
... I toasted the seeds.
Then I made donuts. Mom always made donuts for Halloween and I can't not make them even though they are the last thing you need after all the candy. The last thing she did at home was to make Halloween donuts before her last trip to the hospital so you know it has to be done.
I made apple cider donuts this year.
There is applesauce and apple cider in the batter. You even glaze them with a reduced apple cider sugar mix before you sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar.
They were sweet but good. The Mister liked them. We each ate one and I'll probably toss the leftovers. I say that now but I always end up eating the stale old things with a big cup of coffee.
I had my Echo play every Halloween soundtrack I could think of. I even bought a old time Halloween radio show from Audible to listen to. I fired up my vintage pumpkin lights. These hung in the front window of my old house 30 years ago. They've seen a lot of Halloweens. Me too.
All in all it was an okay night for a silly old lady in a witch hat making a big mess in the kitchen while dancing to the Time Warp. It's just a jump to the left.......
