The Weekly Rewind is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Heading into November, it suddenly turned cold. I’m glad I didn’t have to take anyone out trick-or-treating on Halloween. One tiny girl liked my pumpkin, which I had carved into a cat’s face.

I hit up Target and Walgreens for their after-Halloween sales yesterday. I’ve never been much of a decorator, but I found some things I liked to save for next year. I got a bottle of nail polish, a hanging ghost, a string of ghost lights that change colors and a cute Happy Halloween sign. There were a few more things I liked but not at even 50% off prices. I’ll go back in a couple of days and see if any of them are left and marked down even more. If not, they weren’t meant for me.

  2. It got cold here too, we actually had snow flying although it didn’t last. Still it was a little early to see the white stuff! It was freezing last night for trick or treating.

    I voted for Scarlet in your TBR post because Robin Hood and it looks good! 🙂

  6. It was cold here too but the kids didn’t seem to notice! Luckily with enough layers I survived. I love that you hit the clearance sales for the Halloween stuff. I always mean to do that but most of the time forget. I’ve gotten some great deals that way. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!
