My favorite night of the year. Robed and surrounded by my implements of power, Loreena McKennitt's The Visit on the sound system, glogg steaming in the crockpot, and all manner of creatures stopping by for treats. It doesn't get any better than this.

happy halloween :)
Hi John, it's your lovely daughter-in-law spending some very valuable time procrastinating :) I found your journal off of your webpage. I didn't know you enjoyed halloween night so much! Martin and I got home from work in just enough time to finally carve our pumpkins and to answer the door to all the kids (only 10 the whole night). I've been watching Most Haunted on the Travel Channel - it's so neat...you guys should check it out. I'm not sure when it's on because I usually just find it accidentally when I'm flipping (more procrastinating). Anyhoo...just saying hello! Milo and Jack say "meow" (hi!) too.

Hey, Carrie, nothing beats LJ for wasting time! ;-) Except maybe Facebook--that seems to be my students' favorite way of procrastinating!

Yes, I'm a big fan of Halloween. I'm afraid the only pumpkin I carved this year, though, is the one you can do here:


I'll make a note to check out Most Haunted. I'd heard of it but haven't seen the show yet. Sounds interesting ...

We just had our drain and sump pump installed in the basement today. The guys poured fresh concrete over the area they dug up. And by the end of the day that area collected a number of cat prints.

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to visit again!

Hi, I really should start my own journal...I don't want to be sucked in! I already have to write 2 journals and 1 blog a week for methods courses...anyhoo, I implemented my first science lesson today - the first lesson I planned myself from start to finish and lead. It went pretty well, but hopefully tomorrow's will go better.

I thought you'd enjoy this little bit of kid humor...on Monday (halloween), we had sharing. One boy brought in a record that belonged to his mom that had scary music on it so we could play it in the background. When he took it out from behind him (he was hiding it like it was treasure so no one else could see until he got to share it), he had this HUGE smile on his face. Then when he started talking about he got really serious. He told us in a matter-of-fact voice, "This is an ancient artifact from 1970! It's really old cause it's my mom's." We (the adults in the room) cracked up. Then someone else brought in their mom's singing California raisins. It was a very cool day.

And today, someone read my first name on my tag, and they all looked at me and realized that "Mrs" wasn't my first name. Kids!
