October!

October is my favorite month. Not only is it home to my favorite holiday Halloween, it’s also the month of my birthday, my mom’s birthday and my anniversary. October is full of good things for me. I even (inadvertently) have Halloween cats!

Agent Floofy Buttkins and Rorschach. It's so far proven impossible to get a good picture of them both at the same time.
So big good things in October. I also tend to reexamine goals and set new ones. Refresh and hit the reset button. This October, I’m hitting the reset button on my writing. Not entirely, but I’m giving my books and newsletter a makeover and adding a few secrets for subscribers.
 
Along with all that, I still need to get some pumpkins and run to Costco for candy. Our neighborhood is hit or miss for big numbers of trick-or-treaters. Some years we run out early, and some years we’re eating fun-sized candy bars well past Christmas.
 
I’m not sure I’ll have time to make a new costume this year, and right now, both kids are saying they don’t want to trick-or-treat, which makes me sad. I’m hoping they change their minds. Even if they don’t want to troll the neighborhood for candy, they have fun handing it out to the kids who visit our house.
 
The critters are covered since I picked up a cardboard haunted house with a scratcher floor for the cats and a skeleton sweatshirt for the dog at Aldi. Their “finds” section gets me every time.
 

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
