November 5 – Weekly Photos

This week, Halloween overshadowed everything, of course. We trick-or-treated with friends, family + neighbors, making two sweeps through our ‘hood for an obnoxious amount of candy. The kids counted it up to more than 200 pieces each!

Later in the week, the inevitable post-Halloween cold stilled our activities. We mostly stayed home, recuperating quietly, wondering who’d get it next. (No one, as it turned out.) But we turned our plans into at-home experiments with art + cookery. We used new art supplies, listened to audiobooks while painting, and felt inspired to try making fresh pasta, a whole-day experiment with delicious results. Being home for a few days, just making sure we didn’t have Covid + trying not to spread germs, gave us more time to dig into projects we’ve abandoned. Both Rosetta and Wilder seemed to feel inspired by digging around, unearthing + organizing the art closet. I am hoping to do more of these things as the weather cools + we’re indoors more.

We ended a quiet week with brunch with friends (not pictured) + so enjoyed having people over again. It’s been years since we invited people over for meals who weren’t related to us. Having done it again, I’d love to get back into the groove of gathering around food. More potlucks, teas + brunches, please! We’re ready!
