october









man, i love this time of year. it's just the coziest, and cozy is my middle name. (speaking of cozy, i bought this book for sho at a secondhand shop yesterday, and it is quite possibly the coziest bedtime book i've ever seen, filled with beatrix potter's illustrations of various sleeping animals, each one more ridiculously cozy than the last. we read it ten times before bed last night, and i did not complain once.) 

sho's halloween costume is made, with help from my parents who made her the most witchin' tiny broom out of bamboo from our yard last night.  i was a little disappointed when she said she wanted to be a witch, mainly because i love frustrating projects that keep me up way past my bedtime, evidently. she was a raccoon for her baby-halloween and medusa last year - both elaborately awesome costumes that went pretty much undocumented due to a lack of camera both years. but you know, making her into a witch turned out to be perfect, plus i feel downright giddy being done twenty-four days before deadline. that has never happened in the history of my life. plus, i've just put up some homemade decorations to surprise sho with when she comes home from an afternoon at her grandma and grandpa's.  dude, i'm on top of it this year! 

 in the meantime, i'm going to curl up in bed with a good book.  my head just exploded at the prospect of doing that, easily a top five fave life activity of mine which i basically never make time for these days. oh, fall. why can't you be my life partner? you bring out the best in me.  i'll bring you breakfast in bed, and never take your fine ways for granted....
