The Calm Before the Storm
All hell broke loose the week before Halloween, which has made me get behind in my posts. Since my house was in the path of Sandy, I had to decide whether or not I would take down my 50+ props in the yard.
I decided I didn’t want to add to the flying debris and took all of them down. It took just over 2.5 hours to get them down and put away safely.
After the storm had passed, there were only 3 days left until Halloween. Although I was grateful we did not get the devastation other people experienced, I was a little sadden by the fact my yard was empty of Halloween glee.
An Effort Worth Taking
I chose to put them back up, which was no small order. It took working straight through (without any breaks) just shy of 8 hours to bring back the Halloween spirit.
When the Halloweeners (from the book of Debisms) began to trickle down the street, I saw faces of delight and fear. That in itself was worth all the effort.
Sandy may have cancelled their Halloween Parade, but she wasn’t going to stop this gal from spreading the magic of Halloween.
Good for you! I’ll bet you made Halloween for some of the kids 🙂
Parents and kids alike said they were extremely happy with it. So I achieved my goal of making a little magic. Thanks!
