Tonight, I'm going to bed "early." Tomorrow, I'm going to the Village Halloween Parade. But yesterday, yesterday I celebrated Halloween on my own terms.
The day passed peacefully enough--I ate a leisurely breakfast, submitted my first Pravassa blog post, read a new book, and straightened up the apartment. Then, six o'clock hit. Catherine came home with Halloween excitement and the sailor hat she had so graciously picked up for me. We encouraged Dave to figure out a costume, and helped him into character when he did. Wine and beer flowed freely.I also prepared myself a quick dinner: whipped butternut squash and a spinach and goat cheese omelette. I may have had some candy too, just to be festive.
Before long, it was time to head downtown to a friend's party. We mingled and danced, chatted and drank, and had an all around good time. These helped:
Hope you all had a fun weekend as well. And if you too are getting excited for the Foodbuzz Festival, please let me know. I can hardly wait to meet you in San Fran!
