Mary Poppins Comes Back
“There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.”-Linus
Linus could not be more truthful.
Heather and I had a pretty uneventful Halloween. Our lovely friend Jill graciously invited us over for a porch party on this All Hallows’ Eve. But alas, we couldn’t make the trip due to my having to work a little late…so what to do as adults on such a night? How about a quiet dinner and the bi-monthly grocery shopping trip. (YAY?) But it’s Halloween…and why else have a studio in your spare bedroom? Because it wasn’t quite midnight yet and seemed a perfectly good time to bring our take to our favorite characters, Mary Poppins and Bert.
Call it an homage, call it our 21st century take on the classic, but we had fun putting together our costumes (any excuse to use coal on my face?) and taking advantage of our backdrop. Only Mister Emory seemed less than thrilled.
And to top the night? Carmel apples and chocolate chip pumpkin bread procured from my mom…not to mention coffee and salted caramel hot chocolate bought by Heather for the occasion!
In the end, sometimes low key is best, even “practically perfect in every way.”
