We started off our day on a VERY scary note - we tried a new kind of coffee - coffee that some would consider to be the scariest in existence - Kopi Luwak. This coffee has been selected by a Paradoxurus Hermaphroditis (better known as the Asian Palm Civet Cat) who eats only the finest and ripest cherries (the fruit of the coffee plant). Eventually, after being digested, the civet POOPS out the stones (more commonly called "beans"). The "beans" are collected and cleaned and eventually become the coffee beans we, now, know and love. Holy goodness, it was good (luckily for us, since one cup cost about as much as an appetizer at Applebees....).
Should make about 6 cups in all...
After that, it was day as usual - until Trick-Or-Treating Time!!
Chad and I have been at home since 4:30 this afternoon. See in California, soon after then is when the trick-or-treating beings - the parents want to get it done BEFORE it gets dark. So we wait, dark comes.... and we wait.... and I get discouraged. We even bought GOOD candy this year! Then it happens!
All in all, we got 10 trick-or-treaters. About 3 an hour between 6:30 and 8:00.... We only bought enough candy for 30, so ok, we weren't TOO disappointed. But still...
Who wouldn't want to come up to THIS creepy entry?!
(yes... we did have the porch light on)
I can't wait till Thanksgiving (that's the next day, silly :)!
