The day after Halloween, All Souls Day, Día de los Muertos

1 Nov

I don’t have much to report from my Halloween activities. I spent most of the day working on some graphic design projects while caring for my husband who had an awful 24hr migraine. My favorite experience from yesterday was shopping at the grocery store, the aisle were filled with witches, clowns, pirates and celebrity look-a-likes all in search of last minute candy for tricker-treaters (or beer for parties). My mind wandered to what it would be like if we all dressed up everyday- if we had a costume for every mood and state of mind what fun it could be!

On another note…we woke up this morning to the most beautiful frost.  It’s as if the earth took note that it was November 1st and was ready to shift seasons- from orange and gold to green and white. For me, cold weather brings with it more candle light, more baking and more time with friends and family during the “holiday season” (for our Swedish readers- its the time leading up to Thanksgiving all the way through the New Year.)

Jag har inte så mycket att berätta om mina Halloween-aktiviteter. Större delen av dagen ägnade jag åt en del grafisk form-projekt medan jag tog hand om min man som hade en fruktansvärd migrän. Dagens bästa aktivitet var att åka och handla, hela affären var fylld av häxor, clowner, pirater och kändis look-a-likes som handlade sista minuten godis eller öl. Tänk om vi alltid skulle vara utklädda? Om vi hade en kostym för varje humör och känsla, vore inte det kul? Vidare vaknade vi upp till vacker frost i morse – det var som att naturen förstått att det var 1 november. För mig betyder det mer tända ljus, mer bakning och mer tid med familj och vänner under “högtidssäsongen” som nu leder oss mot Thanksgiving och hela vägen fram till nyår.
