It's here!

Shel Silverstein has written these words:

                                                           On Halloween

                                          On Halloween I'll go to town

                                          And wear my trousers upside down,

                                          And wear my shoes turned inside out

                                          And wear a wig of sauerkraut.

Yes, Halloween is here!  Does this poem sound anything like what you plan to do today?:-)

I was busy in the kitchen yesterday with these:

Ready to deliver!

I have 24 baggies of three cookies each to deliver for my Circle Halloween party at a nearby Assisted Living center.

On a serving plate, they look like this:

Well, except for the gingerbread cookies in the front!

The cookies in the baggies are chocolate chip, thumbprints, and dipped chocolate cookies from one of the Pioneer Woman's shows last December. 

Plate - Vineyard by Noritake, now discontinued.

I want to welcome new followers!  I am honored that you have chosen to follow my blog.

Now, I must decide what to do about that all-important costume!:-)  What about you?

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. The witch is IN at my house, Nellie, and looks just like ME!;>) Your cookies and treat bags look great. What a nice thing to do. Enjoy your day. I have the kids coming later in the day. Hope yours is a good one- xo Diana

  2. Nellie, I am a total cookie monster, I love cookies so much and those sure look tasty. :):) Hope you day is fun. xoxo,Susie

  3. Hi Friend, Happy Halloween, No costume for me. Those cookies look yummy!! Enjoy your day, Anna

  4. Cookies looks very yummy and no costume for me. I don't get any trick or treaters anymore so I don't buy candy except a small bag of chocolates for hubby.
    I've been just so very busy working at the farm that I didn't even had a chance to decorate for Halloween this year. I'll be ahead this year, I won't have to put it all back in storage.


  5. Your treat bags look yummy. Our rainy windy day is going to mean fewer trick or treaters tonight. Boo.

    Sending you a few Halloween hugs!

  6. Well, my hair might look better if I wore a sauerkraut wig! Sometimes, when I first get up, I do have a witchy sort of appearance, but I try to get rid of that before anyone else sees me. Your cookies all look yummy, and I'm sure the folks at the assisted living will enjoy them a LOT! Have a blessed day!

  7. We've had about 6 inches of rain since yesterday. Might make for some wet trick or treating if it doesn't stop soon!

  8. I'm all set for the trick or treaters. They came around here between 6 and 7. Wonder how many kids will come here. At the townhouse we would just get a couple.

  9. Hi Nellie , you have been one busy lady , the cookies looks delicious , be right over . It's raining here , but I'm prepared if the weather corporate , Happy Halloween to you and thanks for sharing:)

  10. Those goodies look yummy. NO costume for me this year haha. Happy Halloween Nellie!! :)

  11. I love, love LOVE Shel Silverstein's poetry. If he can't make ya smile, nobody can.

    Those cookies look yummy, and you're gonna make a lot of people happy with them. My costume? It's a glow-in-the-dark Halloween tee shirt I've had for almost thirty years. (Still glows in the dark, too!) It has a skeleton on it, and says, "No bones about it! Happy Halloween."

  12. The poem is sweet, so whimsical !
    You are so kind to bake and deliver those cookies, lucky 'trick or treaters' :)


  13. Happy Halloween, Nellie! would you believe we didn't get not one trick or treater today? I even bought lots of candy. Uh oh, I hope I don't eat it all, lol...

    Love that poem and those cookies look mighty good too. I'll trade you some candy for some cookies:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, Nellie...
