Halloween Treats

Yesterday a box arrived. All the way from that foreign country New Mexico. Yes, that far! Totally unexpected, I opened the box to find a real treat. And it smelled wonderful. Like rosemary.

Inside the box was Halloween goodness. From the gifted Linda of
A Happy Samhain box, just because! What a sweetie. And it couldn't have come at a better time. Not having a great day yesterday, I lit up like a jack-o-lantern when I looked at everything wrapped up in the colors of the season.

I adore the the black cat, fashioned out of pipe cleaners. The heart is bordered with ribbon and beads, and watch out for that deadly spider!  Big hugs to my B.B. Linda. She's a keeper.

Things got even better in the evening when I drove to Oswego to visit The Fey Dragon
Mary has organized all kinds of activities at her metaphysical shop, including classes, drumming circle, author visits, reiki, tarot readings. Last night I attended a Pagan Social Gathering.  A time for pagans to come together to chat, share, enjoy conversation with like-minded people. It's a good chance to meet people who share the pagan path and talk openly about all kinds of stuff. There was even cobbler! A wonderful evening and I am looking forward to next month's gathering. I really am excited to have these kinds of opportunities now.

We had our first light frost overnight! Now it definitely feels like the Halloween season.  Be sure to click on the button at the top of my sidebar to see what all the bloggers are doing at The Whimsical Cottage's Countdown to Halloween.  Happy Thursday!

Glad that the "stinky" present got to you okay. I'd much rather gift at Samhain because it is always a surprise to folks. It makes me happy that you are happy BB. Have a super day and enjoy the "stinker". Oma LInda

Oh what a wonderful surprise for you! Enjoy all those goodies. We're kind of cool here as well...a bit surprising because this is not what the weather said last night...but I am not about to complain. This weather is a pleasure.

What fun to get a treat box, especially for Halloween. My niece and I used to exchange Halloween boxes, wish we still did.

I wish there was a similar place to visit around here. No pagans in evidence in Bismarck.

I am so GLAD you changed your type color to white. I really couldn't read your blog before.

That's wonderful!!! Love the Samhain gift set! :D

I am so glad to hear that you have a place to gather with other Pagans/Wiccans. It really makes such a difference! We have a group called,'Reading Witches & Pagans' and the also have meetings (twice a month) and they are so close to where I actually live. It's great!!!
