First and foremost, a HUGE congratulations to my beloved and bearded Boston Red Sox for their historic World Series Championship win last night. It was such an incredible game to watch, from the Dropkick Murphys singing the national anthem all the way to Koji Uehara’s final pitch of the night, and the post-victory celebrations were even more fun. After everything this city has been through this year, to see everyone in such high spirits as our team dominated Game 6 and seized the title at home, in Fenway, for the first time in 95 years, was powerful. That’s the only way to describe it- powerful. The feeling throughout the city during and after the game was electric, and Boston both needed- and deserved- a night like last night. Boston Strong, indeed. Don’t ever forget it.
I was beyond exhausted at work today, but it was absolutely worth it. I couldn’t think of a better way to close out the month of October. Speaking of, Happy Halloween! (and happy 100th entry in this blog!) We got some light drizzle/rain here tonight, which kept a lot of trick-or-treaters indoors, leaving me with a ton of leftover candy that I’ve been eyeing for the past hour. I foresee some weight gain, or at the very least, a pretty bad stomach ache in my future.
October was a tremendous month (and I’m not just saying that because it’s one of my favorites,) and yes, while most of my adventures were horror/Halloween-oriented, i.e.- The Walking Dead Escape: NYC, Rock N’ Shock, etc.- I did have a few not-so-gory days, too, where I soaked up the beautiful Autumn in New England scenery before the leaves started falling off the trees.
I don’t have any travel plans, and nothing particularly grand scheduled for November (yet,) which means spending more time closer to home, and with Thanksgiving a few weeks away, I’m looking forward to getting back in the kitchen and typing up some recipe posts to share with everyone since it’s been a while. I’ve also been on the fence about whether or not to participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month,) although with tomorrow being the 1st and all, I suppose I should make a decision pretty soon.
‘Til then, Oliver and his Halloween sweater bid a fond farewell to October ’13.
