Halloween is now 10 days away and by now usually the house is filled with orange and black by the end of September already. But not this year, not one decoration is up. Somehow it just lost it's luster this year and i'm not sure why yet. I do miss the lights on the porch though. Purple lights on a string of bats. They are so cool. I was given two strings our first year and Daddy ran back to the store to make sure there were enough to go all the way around. That's a happy thought today.
