I don't think much of that will be happening at my house this weekend, we're all fighting colds. It's supposed to be a rainy one anyway. Maybe I'll get some reading done. Halloween was eventful. The night before we lost power because of high winds and rain. We still had no power in the morning. School was cancelled. My girl was pretty disappointed since all her friends were dressing up for their class party. By lunchtime power was back and Halloween could begin! We were lucky not to have ended up with all the snow they had in other places.
Onto bookish news.
