Happy Halloween and Blessed Samhain

We had quite a day of rain and storms a few days ago.  Late in the afternoon, I went to look out the back and saw the gorgeous play of light on the trees.  I grabbed my camera and when I stepped outside was surprised by the beauty of a double rainbow.  

Today, I took my annual trip to the neighboring county to pick up our yearly supply of brunswick stew with my mum.  It was a nice little ride in the countryside and despite having my camera with me, I wasn't able to get but a few photos.  

After I left my mum and headed home, I stopped at a store that I'd seen that little pumpkin girl in a week or more ago.  She was still there, sitting all by her lonesome with the 50% off Halloween decor.  So, of course she had to come home with me.  Us lonely girls need to stick together!  :-)  I posted a photo of her on Instagram when I arrived home and it turns out she has an identical twin sister that lives with the marvelously magical Miss V.  Now I know why she seemed so familiar to me when I first saw her.  I'm still waiting for her to tell me her name.  She seems like either a Penelope or maybe a Pepita.  :-)

I'm off to get dressed for giving out treats.  I have much left to do on this All Hallows Eve.  My yearly tarot reading, an ancestor reading I discovered today on Instagram that I want to try out.  I need to start on supper for the ancestors (and myself), my last inktober drawing and I'm going to make time to sit and see what the spirits have to say (if anything) to me tonight.  I also have started some other work that I want to continue today.  

What are you planning for this evening?  Do you have any special rituals or habits that you do each Halloween/Samhain?

thanks for stopping by!
love & blessings

ps...I'm several days behind in my blog reading thanks to the cold I've been fighting for a week.  I hope to catch up with you all over the next few days. xo
