It’s Halloween. Craziness reigned today. We had to retrieve the truck from the shop. In Salem. Did I mention that it was Halloween?
Soccer game (5-1 loss), frantic search for smoke machine and inflatable cat for the yard, cook dinner. . .
Kiddo dressed as a TARDIS and went off with her friend who is the 11th Doctor. I am a man in a white van with candy.
Our driveway is long, dark and scary, so every year we set up at the street end to hand out candy. The first group of kids has passed. I can hear the toddlers shrieking in the next block.
But right here right now, it is so quiet I can hear the quartz clock ticking. Acorns are falling in the woods, and I just heard my neighbor’s boiler turn off.
