The Best Night
Tonight was my kind of night. Just simple fun. An impromptu phone call to a friend yesterday morning to carve pumpkins tonight. Were they available? Yes!
An extra pumpkin allowed a neighbor to get in on the fun too. Grabbing the DVD of "Kiki's Delivery Service" at the library fixed us up nicely for the night.
Popped some popcorn and we moms had a glass of red wine. Don't you know that Cabernet and popcorn are divine together?
After the movie, the kids pitched in with the clean-up, then went outside to play freeze tag in the dark, while my friend, Susan, and I cleaned the seeds for roasting tomorrow.
A fire in the fireplace, wood-smoke on the cool, night air. Friends around and smiles on the faces of those I love. Just the best night.
