Trick or treats

The McLeod River Post - - Points of View - by June McInnes June McInnes

I hope ev­ery­one had a good thanks­giv­ing.

And with thanks­giv­ing over the next occasion to cel­e­brate is Hal­loween.

One of my favourite times of year, the nip in the air, the dark skies, dress­ing up, bak­ing cook­ies and the giv­ing of candy to trick or treaters, won­der­ful.

This year I’m bak­ing and dec­o­rat­ing cook­ies, I’m ac­tu­ally look­ing for­ward to it to be hon­est. The house is partly dec­o­rated, which I’m happy about as last year we didn’t have our be­long­ings as they hadn’t been de­liv­ered, so I’m very glad this year is dif­fer­ent.

I’m hop­ing that we get lots of trick or treaters and that some mem­bers of our fam­ily drop by to col­lect good­ies, that’s one of the best parts, that and snug­gling down on the sofa to watch some scary movies in my py­ja­mas.

Noth­ing nicer than snug­gling up with a blankie a few snacks and fam­ily around you to watch some good films, films that in­voke good mem­o­ries of good times in the past.

(The dogs par­tic­u­larly en­joy the snack part).

After Hal­loween is over I shall be look­ing for­ward to Christ­mas and work­ing to­wards that, I’ve pies to bake and more cook­ies to make, this year I’m giv­ing more home made presents as they are made with love and you know who made them, they weren’t churned out of a fac­tory en masse, they were painstak­ingly made with care and love.

Hope­fully cor­rectly tai­lored to each in­di­vid­ual fam­ily mem­ber per­son­ally.

I’ve got some projects fin­ished al­ready and some in the pipe­line, let’s hope I get them all done in time, the last thing I want is to be up on Christ­mas Eve des­per­ately try­ing to fin­ish some­thing. But if I have to I will.

So, I’ve got a plan and hope it all works out, we shall see. Keep every­thing crossed for me won’t you.

As al­ways be nice to one another,
