I survived Halloween with not a clown in sight. But just in case my fearless protector stood guard at the window until it got dark.
This is her new favourite spot the last few days. The beggars (I mean trick or treaters) started arriving around 3:30pm. All little ones, some princesses, a few ninja turtles and even a frozen snowman. There are 6 bags of cheesies left in the box so I guess I had 18 little ones at the door. Around 7pm I took my hiding spot in the back of the house ;)
Now for the hoarder part. I have a friend who is a self-confessed hoarder. Not the kind you see on TV, as her house is immaculate but there are rumours about the attic .....LOL. It doesn't matter what you mention, she can find it somewhere. The other day I said I wish I had an old cast iron skillet for cornbread. "I have 5" she says. OMG - who has 5 cast iron skillets? Anyway yesterday she showed up for our coffee date with one of them. Yay! Seriously, everyone should have a hoarder friend like her.
And what goes with cornbread? A big pot of chili.
Obviously I'm not a food stylist as that picture is a little sad but it tasted great.
Abby had a bath this morning. Wow, she does not enjoy it. The bathroom looks like a crime scene and it took me at least 15 minutes to catch her afterwards. She had "the zoomies" bad and thought my attempts to chase her with a towel was an act of war. She is now almost dry and has decided she is too tired from her ordeal to remain mad at me
