In theory I will have Trick or Treaters tonight. I heard on the radio that kids do that even here in Nz. I went to Countdown (it and New World are the local grocery stores) last night and bought four bags of candy. It’s getting dark, and so far no one has come to my door. I may be bringing fours bags of candy into the hospital tomorrow. Oh, well, it’s job security for later.
I did look out the window earlier tonight and saw some very scary looking clouds, so I thought in celebration of October 31 (or, as they would say here, 31 October) I would capture some of the moment. I have to say, one of the great things about living here are the clouds. In the Bay Area of California, I’m afraid to say, we have very boring skies. Usually plain blue. It’s good if you like outdoor tennis, but the number of spectacular cloud-scapes I’ve seen there is small. Here in Dunedin, three or four times a week I’m treated to a show at sunset, and I have front row seat. It’s marvelous.
So, enjoy the clouds, especially if your opportunities to see these spectacles are rare. And wish me luck at the hospital on 1 November that the nurses like sweets.
