When it comes to holidays, I don't get into the spirit as much as I could. I start out with reasonably good intentions, but my interest wanes quickly when I realize time and effort are involved.
So, Hallowe'en 2011. I didn't dress up, but I carved a pumpkin, baked spider web cookies and...have a black cat? Given my history, I'm chalking this one up as a win.
