I love this picture of these cute little pumpkins! I always get excited at Halloween, although I haven't really decorated since Nick moved out. I do buy candy to hand out to those wonderful, costumed, little cuties! I just adore those little bundles in their costumes, coats, and Mom & Dads. I did buy candy this year and brought it home and hid it from Tim. After 2 days of searching and not finding the candy, he brought something to my attention that I hadn't thought about. Covid! They are not recommending Trick or Treating this year! I was devastated! Halloween is on a Saturday, with a full moon this year! I thought I would be busy at the door, even in this remote area. The last couple of years have been great handing out candy. Now I am sad. I want to see Ninja Turtles, Cinderella's, Scarecrows, and Lions! I am guessing Tim is right, there won't be many little cuties wanting my candy this year. I told Tim where the candy was hidden. Yes, I have even had more than a few pieces myself. I will keep some candy available, but I think it will be a bust.
That being said, I am not a Covid fanatic. I wear my mask when in public. But I have been a bit of a hermit before Covid. It really didn't change me much. That being said, I had an RX and groceries to pick up yesterday. My appointment for pickup was between 2-3pm so I decided to pick up dinner on my way home. Pickup for me is in a neighboring town and about a 45 minute drive. Here is my point...I will miss those cuties on Halloween, but I made 3 stops yesterday AND NEVER GOT OUT OF MY CAR! I did have to get out and pump my own gas before taking off, but I didn't even have to go inside for that! Normally, I would LOVE that I got all my errands done and never left my car. But if it meant I could see those happy little cute Trick or Treaters...I would have made 3 stops and gladly went in. Kids should be able to have fun...I hope most parents will find a safe way to make that happen. Not even weather could stop us as kids!
So, have a Great Halloween. Celebrate somehow (even if you just eat your own candy...like we will)! LOL!
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Sane!
