It always amazes me how suddenly I'm thrown headlong into autumn. I think it's because in spring I steel myself for a long hot summer and then it's over in a blink. The weather turned wet as if cued by the equinox, and though we've had some nice days since then, they have a different feel. The other day I was walking under the neighbor's gigantic maple tree and could smell fall for the first time.

So here we are in my absolute favorite time of year. I'm utilizing my newfound creativity (the heat tends to turn it off) by making Halloween costumes for Cory and me. I'm excited; though someone has got to have thought of my idea before, I can't find any photographic evidence for it online. My Halloween costume ideas always have to be that fine line between "everyone recognizes what it is in a moment" and "nobody else has thought of it" - which is why I never dress up, I suppose. Next weekend I'll get the decorations out - I want to try a Pepper's Ghost in the upstairs window but I'm not sure I want to buy glass for it, so maybe I will do something else interesting. I just spent an hour looking at DIY Halloween decorations and now I can't wait to buy a house so I can haunt it. :D
