We started the month of with a nice long nature walk to collect supplies for making fall themed crafts. When we go for our nature walks we always include plant and tree identification and sometimes when we are lucky animal signs. On this day we found an area were deer bed down.

We went to the Witches market in Edmonton and the Old Strathcona farmers market and bought all sorts of fun things. Enough that it warranted it's own blog post Witches market blog post
On our way from one market to the other we saw a peaceful prayer protest by Buddhist monks against organ harvesting from Tibetan citizens and monks. It was a hard thing for the minions to see but really opened their eyes to how our countries are so very different.
Then we were in full Samhain mode! Decorating....
