Hey, good for you, Holly! I'm glad that you could take care of it yourself. Did you enjoy your walk? I just got back from mine and am going to cool done HERE and see how everyone is doing.
Lala, I thought your trip was coming up pretty soon. How lucky you are to go somewhere SO warm while we are still in the cold. I am really happy that you will be around more often!
Haridas, I think the candles that light the night are much better than the firecrackers. It is cool how the legend of victory of good over evil plays out using light from candles and lamps to illuminate the homes and hearts. I enjoy having lit candles floating in water, too. They are so peaceful. Enjoy the harvest festival with your family.
