We Had A Fantastic Ride Last Night!

November 1, 2011

Ooowee, was it ever chilly on our ride last night!  But I must say that it was a lot of fun.  Yes, I saw your wave, Nani.  Folks, she had lots of little trick or treaters at her house.  If we had the time, we might have stopped by for some of that yummy candy.

However, halfway through our trip, Tootsie decided that she had to go potty and did not want to make any stops.  The rest of the way home, she had all her toes crossed.  Poor baby!  I do have one question for everyone else we met on our ride.  How come none of you brings along your doggie?  Tootsie was the only doggie we saw all night.  Everyone else was traveling with their cat. 

Right now, I'm watching the shopping channel.  They are showing a gorgeous fake Christmas tree and all the trimmings.  The tree is on sale for $300, and the ornaments are sold in sets of one color each for $50 a set.  I guess some folks like the one color scheme but I'm old fashioned and want multi colors.  So imagine what it would cost me to decorate that tree with the designer ornaments.  They had hot pink, citrine, aqua, silver, gold, russet and purple.  That's another $350 to buy all the different colors.  I would hope the tree lasts for at least ten or twenty years.

Now they are showing a new toy -- a set of two sock monkeys that you shoot at each other like sling shots.  Remember those sling shots?  Remember all the kids that were hurt really badly getting hit with them?  So I guess it's okay to bring them back as long as they are shaped like sock monkeys? 

Now they are showing a $40 candy assortment.  You get a box each of peanut brittle, toffee, peppermint bark, and smores.  I think I'm going to turn on "Thomas The Tank Engine" because I really am trying to lose a few pounds.  I was doing so good for a while, but then I put a few pounds back on.  I liked it better when they were lost.

Today, I have some freebies for you.  I love making QP's and today I have an assortment of them for you to scrap all your Halloween photos.  This first one is my absolute favorite because it's so playful and happy.  I'll put the download link beneath each QP.  Enjoy!!





Now I'm off to make a fresh cup of coffee and some breakfast for Tootsie and me.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I love the dancing skeletons, almost enough to want to scrapbook. We had a total of five trick and treaters last night - a record for us. It's usually just the one girl next door.

It WAS so cold last night. I got a chill just sitting b y the door for 2 hours! I can’t imagine what it was like open-air flying!

I’m with you on liking the many colors on the tree. All of our ornaments have special meaning or symbolize something special to or about one or both of us. We can’t be limited to only one or two colors!

Thanks for the freebies! I love the dancing skeletons!!

It’s gotten cold in the house. I need to make some tea!

Hugs, Nani

Wow, the price of the tree isn't cheap. Depends a bit how tall it is, but still!
Few years back we bought an artificial one, and I thought it was already pretty expensive, about 70 Euro, I think. And with already lights in it!
When decorated it looks not bad at all, well, you saw some pics of it. I too like more colours of decorations, mostly, I stick to 3 colours, I like very much gold, red and some silver, then here and there something in a different colour, or just glass.
Great quickpages!
I'll go post now on my blog.
Have a wonderful day!
