I finally took down the Hallowe’en decorations tonight.  I always push that off for as long as I can, Hallowe’en being my favorite holiday, and autumn being my very favorite time of year.  I opened the big Rubbermaid storage tub and it was redolent with spirits of Hallowe’ens past.  I smelled 1993, my goblin and faerie princess children sticky with candy and the excitement of the shadowy night.  I miss those days when my children were small.  They’re all grown now, and starting to give me grandchildren.  Well, one grand daughter so far.  I can look forward now to a new generation of goblins, and best of all, filling them with candy and sending them home to their parents!
