Welcome to our haunted house.
Well, maybe not so haunted. I must admit that the garden is beautiful right now and I am resisting raking the leaves up because it’s my little piece of autumn glory,
But it’s been too impossibly busy today to rake leaves.
Boys had to be helped with make up, quick snacks had to be eaten,
Ragamuffin homemade crows had to be coaxed above doors,
And hoodies painted in Zef style.
And then, all is ready. Our resident Zef girl Chlo-landi Visser takes her Halloween leave,
And I have time for a quick glass of something deeply red and a half hour dedicated to a little art.
A bat, just waking up, ready to fly off the folk requiem page.
And me, I shall stay up reasonably late in my haunted house, with one of my favourite Halloween books.
But first, please excuse me, I must rush off. I seem to have some
victims children at the door.
