As I cruised into our shared driveway late at night a few weeks ago, I nearly slammed on my brakes. A 2-foot-long snake slithered out of our neighbor’s bushes! And a 1-foot-tall… Spider? I stopped short of the garage, untangled myself from the seatbelt, and cautiously approached the…

As a decorating procrastinator, I completely forget that other people set out pumpkins and orange twinkly lights in early October. (Sure, I buy my trick-or-treater candy around the, but that’s only because I need enough time to test it all before hanging it out to innocent little kids!)
Since the little girl next door really, enjoyed pinning up her black cat cutouts and crinkly pumpkin streamers, I wanted to contribute to the Halloween festivities. I don’t own many decorations, but I sure can bake—or at least melt marshmallows for candy corn rice krispie treats!
