It’s a race to the finish!

My kitchen table, stacked high with Halloween decorations for the porch, groans under the load. Two giant cauldrons are in the living room all filled with more stuff. Later, one will brim over with candy and glow in the dark bracelets.

A roll of chicken wire is on the back porch ready to become the giant-sized Audrey 2.

We are 1 day behind schedule so I will play catch up tomorrow and Wednesday after my appointment with my cardiologist.

I’ve reserved Thursday for cooking and final prepping the porch for Friday. The main decorations don’t go up until Friday, we had thefts in the early years and learned our lesson.

All day Friday, we’ll decorate and finish Audrey 2, hoping fervently we finish in time for trick or treating.

Tomorrow, the hanging of the landscaping fabric begins.

  1. I wish just once, I could have come out to your place to see the decorations. Unfortunately, work and a certain family member got in the way… 😦
