Here we are at the beginning of a new month ~ November 1, my birthday. Thank you Flighty for giving me such a lovely surprise post, and for the delightful birthday wishes from my Blog Friends...:) I had a lovely day with many phone calls from family and friends. There turned out to be nine of us gathered for my birthday dinner treat ~ great way to start off a new birthday year. This is also the night we turn the clocks back one hour, so a little bit of extra birthday time :) LOL
Here is a glimpse of the ins and outs as I awaited the Halloween goblins ~
In England where I was born, we did not celebrate Halloween, but I do remember the bonfires and fireworks on Guy Fawkes Day each November 5. When I arrived in Canada, I was quite delighted to find out that my brother and I could wander the streets the night before my birthday and collect a bag of treats...We called out "Halloween Apples" rather than "Trick or Treat" in those days, although we really preferred the candies to the apples! My mum always baked an apple pie or two with the apples as an extra birthday treat. I must say that the goblins who came to our door last night were very polite and happy little souls. It was a treat to see and talk with them :)
I am looking forward to Flighty's daily postings on his Looking Skyward blog ~ he's already taken off with his first post of the month!
