What? I am still getting the heebie jeebies looking at the photo of this and I was there to witness my son's bravery.
So, we survived the Haunted Forest and Saturday morning we ventured out the National Weather Festival. It was nice to see many people that I work with in person for a change. Most of the time it seems we collaborate online. Nice to see how things are going in the National Weather Center.

We had a great weekend even though I didn't get my closet unloaded and painted like I had planned (or maybe it was because I didn't get that done). Luckily I have many more days to take care of those big purging and organizing projects. I did manage to cull out lots of pictures to toss (out of focus or extra pics of the cats from way back) and give to my family members. That was just phase one of that effort. I also removed the greenery and lights from my peace wreath form and now I have an ugly wire form that will need paint and/or other covering.
We really raked in the candy recently and it's not over yet. I was crafty and created gift bags (nothing super sexy or anything, just clear bags and orange ribbon) and was able to move a lot of that candy back out of our house into David's classroom.
I snuck in a little time with the girls at The Mont Saturday night too. That was nice because it wasn't crowded and the birds were so friendly (aggressive) trying to get at our chips!

Happy Halloween, friends!
