The second week of horrorthon comes to a close and I think it’s going pretty well this year! We’ve got two and a half more weeks to go and then it’ll be the first of three great holidays, Halloween!
As for me, I have a cold so I’m a little bit out-of-it right now. It’s been raining raining the entire weekend and apparently, we’re about get hit by another storm, one that should last for a few days. There’s also a cold front coming in so I guess fall has finally arrived!
