Tricks and Treats

Harriet was Tilly Witch for Halloween this year, which was a grand success, except for the blip around 4:30 when she decided that she going to wear her Easter Bunny ears instead of the witch hat, and I had to go upstairs and have a moment to myself in order to avoid murdering her. By the time I’d calmed down, the bunny ears were abandoned, and the rest of the evening was splendid, resulting in a bucketful of treats.

Over at Canadian Bookshelf, I’ve written “I am Not At Peace: Ghosts and Haunting in Canadian Fiction”, exploring the spookier side of CanLit. And if you’re not subscribing to the blog, you should. There’s great new stuff up three days a week.

    Did you make that costume? It is lovely. And yes, I understand about the hat vs ears thing. Moira wanted to wear F’s butterfly hat trick-or-treating but F hasn’t taken her hat off in days.

    My mom made the costume– isn’t it amazing? We feel so lucky as I’m more than a bit useless with a needle and thread. I suspect this one will become an heirloom as well.

    It is amazing. Lucky you (and Harriet). The bee costume will fit Moira again next year but she has spent the last two weeks debating about what she will be next year so I think I might be on the hook to make her a new costume.
