Closing out of October...

Halloween night was the perfect night here in Northern Indiana. A cool front came in late morning ending the rain and bringing brisk cold air. By the time the trick or treaters were wandering the streets, darkness prevailed and the sky was marbled with black clouds covering the three-quarters moon.

I had bags and bags of candy which was all given out to ghosts and pirates and vampires and such. I dressed as Pippi Longstocking. The neighbors are always curious to see what I come up with!

Later in the evening Karen and Aaron brought the little guys over..Matthew was Jack Sparrow and Jonah was a large candy corn. (He was supposed to be a dinosaur, but wouldn't put th costume on!) We had cookies and cocoa and chocolate, of course.

November came in with snow..the ground is covered this morning. It is cold at The House at White Picket Gardens. I am trying to keep the heat at 65 degrees, but at night, I send it down to 60.

Welcome November.

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
