Ever since I was real young and the first time I've ever went trick or treating on Halloween, I've always adored the season. Putting on costumes, gathering with other kids and walking door to door collecting treats while seeing other kids going around in their costumes always brought such festive joy. The fireworks, festivities, pumpkin carving and those tasty roasted pumpkin seeds are always just a few more things to look forward to every year.
For a number of years, I was working part time in the picture framing industry and happily selling my handmade jewelry and art at local craft markets...right up until this COVID thing struck. Now due to obvious reasons, I am no longer working at the frame shop nor doing the craft markets which I miss a lot. In mid-March while the pandemic fears were at their peak and the grocery store shelves were mostly empty because of people working themselves into a panic buying frenzy, I've worked my last day at the frame shop before I would eventually become unemployed.
