I was supposed to leave California yesterday, but the storm has extended my visit for a few more days. The photos of the East Coast are horrible and my heart goes out to those facing damaged property, power cuts, floods and worse. Meanwhile, I’m guiltily basking in the California sunshine, carving pumpkins with my family and getting ready for a wave of trick-or-treaters. I found the photos above in my childhood bedroom — me, age 5, in one of my favorite Halloween costumes, Holly Hobby.
Wherever you are, may you be safe and dry, with access to candy, dear readers.
