Happy Halloween and Blessed Samhain to all!
I have the day off today. A noise woke me at 0430 and I‘ve been awake since. My building is having a Halloween party in our newly decorated lobby this afternoon. I‘m making myself go for 25 minutes so people don‘t think that I‘m antisocial.
I got this image off Pinterest from Witch of Howling Creek.

I don‘t know about the rest of you witches, but I‘m very excited that Samhain (and opening day for #BasicWitchSwap) is only FIVE short days away! 🧙🏼‍♀️

We still need to hear from @Q84 and @Shuga to confirm packages have been sent—please let us know by email or posting here when yours will be on the way. Only 4 mailing days left!

🖤🌞

Shuga I‘m late checking in....I ended up with a nasty infection and have been very sick Packages have been mailed 2w
sprainedbrain @Shuga no worries! Your match posted that she has received it. I‘m so sorry that you‘ve been sick! Are you on the mend? 2w
Shuga I think so. Have to for repeat labs when I finish the last of the antibiotics. I don‘t do well taking meds so it‘s flattened me. Lol 2w
sprainedbrain @Shuga ugh. There is already so much yucky stuff going around this fall. Hope you feel great soon! 2w

Mehso-so

Loved the lore and recipe portions of this one, but otherwise found it a bit repetitive and not as strong as other installments in this series. But for just some general info it‘s not bad. Quick and easy, but not my favorite. This marks off some #scaryscavengerhunt prompts so I‘ll update that later. #teamslaughter #scarathlon @Clwojick Book is 1 point

🖤Yes!
🧡Both!!!!
🖤Light magic, dark tales, a little of both, 🌝 and 🌚
🧡I have both now, but have always had cats.
🖤both- I have several tarot decks. I love them.
🧡both- But especially herbs, earth and intention.
🖤Outdoor plants, indoor crystals- although I bet crystals would look pretty in my gardens
🧡East

Meaw_catlady 🐈🐈🐈 my mom fills her gardens with crystals and it‘s beautiful! One day when I have a garden I will do this! 🖤 3mo
Chrissyreadit @Meaw_catlady I bet it‘s lovely! I may try a terrarium and add crystals... we can‘t keep plants inside because the cats keep destroying them😺 3mo

This isn't actually detailed in the book but one of the things to do on Samhain is to make an altar for those who have passed. So I made one for Ash who passed away this past summer.
