Odds and ends

We had more than 80 trick-or-treaters last night! ... which amazes me, because we have no sidewalks, no streetlights, and more than half of the houses around the neighborhood are vacant part-time vacation homes.  Love seeing the little kiddies in their costumes!!!

Stacey and Jessica departed with six quilts (!!), so my autumn/Christmas home decor supply is rather depleted.  I'm tickled that the girls enjoy having quilts in their own homes -- this puts them at the eight-each level.  They're both such sweethearts!!!  Anyway, as soon as I work my way through the mound of guest linens and towels and get the house settled down to normalcy, I need to get back into my sewing room and start replenishing!

I just finished reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. (Ha, just a few years behind on my reading list!)  It was a great read -- assuming that I'm not the last person on the planet who's read it, if you enjoy romantic historical fiction, give it a try.  Sigh --  and don't we all wish we had a Jamie Fraser of our own?  :)
