What I Was Up To:
October has certainly flown by. We started the month going to my parents' place in Amposta where we attended a Rice Harvest Festival. They showed us how they used to do it in the old times and it was a really fun day.
It was also my birthday and I got the Harry Potter Illustrated Edition which is so incredibly stunning! We also went to the theater at the National Theater of Catalonia in Barcelona (how cool is that building?) to see an adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. It was set in Hollywood in the 50s and staged as a musical. We really enjoyed it!
And to end the month we celebrated Halloween. For the first time I carved a pumpkin! But because here's we've got a traditional Chesnut Festival too, we also celebrated it. I baked these traditional minicakes called panellets, which were delicious!
What I blogged About:
The highlight of October was definitely Halloween. I had two posts about it:
First I posted some decorating ideas for this holiday
And secondly, I have a giveaway (still open) to win a set of thrillers!
Also, debut author Jackie Kabler stopped by to talk about the art of taking notes, did you miss it?
