After all the excitement of Halloween on Thursday, we spent Friday seeking out the most comfortable spots in the house and catching up on our sleep.
Thursday, day of Halloween, was - well - indescribable! First the weather that morning was quite cool and frosty, but otherwise nice.
This plant in our yard was edged with frost.
The day warmed up considerably, and by 5:00 pm we had a warm and very pleasant evening. So lots of people started coming our door....60 at final count. Did we ever mention that when someone knocks on our door, that is the signal to scram as far from it as possible!
However, I was persuaded to come into the living room and to see our youngest neighbour all dressed for this occasion. She is only a year old and having the best fun ever!
I like this little girl, she was handing ME a treat - our mom gave her some of my favorite and tasty snacks and she gave them to me.
A while later, a boy that our mombean used to babysit, came wearing his costume, accompanied by his mom and their dog, Sally.
Here is our dadbean giving Sally some attention. Our humans had a dog like Sally long before we came to live here. His name was Ruff.
Finally, by 9:00 pm nobody was coming to the door anymore, thankfully. At this point it had started to rain....and rain. Then it got windy, and continued all day Friday. Our power stayed on, but many in many places the power went off.
Today, there is some drizzle, but oh, it is so nice and quiet and we have been having a lovely snooze!
