When there's a freak snowstorm on Halloween weekend, there are a couple of activities I recommend. First, spend the entire day inside making fall treats, then consume those treats while working on Halloween costumes. I roasted pumpkin seeds, made a batch of buckeyes (more on those later this week), and we perfected our Hunter S. Thompson à la Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and dinosaur/dragon/ hallucination costumes. I still haven't decided what exactly I am, but I did learn a hoodie, green tights and and some yellow duct tape create Halloween magic. On Sunday, the sun returned, the snow melted and life was back to normal with a little more chocolate and peanut butter than usual. Happy Halloween!
