BOO!! Happy Halloween

October 31, 2017

Good morning, and Happy Halloween to everyone.  Tis really quite brisk outside.  At the moment, the temperature is 44F degrees.  It should climb up to about 57F degrees, and drop to the mid thirties for overnight. Brrrrr!

Sadly, this is just a bit too cold for Pogo and me to participate in this year's global ride with our witchy friends.  However, when the temps warm up, there will be other shorter rides and we'll try to fly on a couple of these. 

Well, yesterday I did a bit of grocery shopping.  Did I say a bit?  Wow!  When I got home, I brought in all the freezer and refrigerator items, and left the rest in the car. That used up all my energy.  Later, Joe brought them in for me.  Now the larder is stocked up again. 

I picked up a couple of birthday cards, and a large skein of Paddy Green yarn.  While I'm waiting for my new yarn order, my hands need to be busy.  The Paddy Green matches the Minty yarn and the Wildflower yarn that I already have.  So, last night, I started a new afghan.

 I'll still work on the little red baby hats, but I like to see a bigger project coming to life.   I did ten rows before my eyes were ready to call for the sandman.  Being tired, I thought I might fall right into a deep sleep.  However, that was not the case.  Sleep was fitful for most of the night.  First it would be a leg cramp, then a neck spasm, then on to the other side of the neck, and so on.  Finally, my body settled down and I was able to fall into a nice sleep mode.
I have some really pretty shawl and shrug patterns in my project folder, so I'm thinking that maybe next year, I'll make a few of these.  My completed pile of afghans is growing.  Not a problem though, because I have lots of great grandchildren who might be wanting one of them. 
Plus I want to donate one of the afghans to New England Poodle Rescue's next fund raiser auction.  Pogo is not a poodle, but these are the folks who rescued him and brought him to me.  I am forever grateful to them.
Either later today or sometime tomorrow, Pogo and I will have to go out to the post office and do a couple other errands.  Right now, it's looking like tomorrow might be our day for errands.  After my trip out yesterday, I need a day to work up some more energy.
Today I have another Halloween quick page for you.  This one shows a few skeleton friends on their way home from a Halloween party.  Have fun with it.
Here is your download link:
Now I think I'll wash the dishes.  After that, I'll probably chase a few dust bunnies out of my bathroom.  I told them that the bathroom was off limits to them, but there's always a few rebels in every group. 
On that happy note, I'll take my leave.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day and a safe Halloween night.
Hugs, Edna B.

I'm relieved that I won't have to worry about you flying about on a cold Halloween night, knowing you are safely tucked in warm and snug.

The weather is turning cooler in the southwest as well and is quite lovely right now.

I've been busy writing up some posts to share what I've been doing to transform this place into a truly lovely home for us...it's been long overdue.

Take care my friend.

Oh, you didn;t fly out this year. So with me sleeping during most of the night, didn;t miss the waving. That's a relief.
I think you were very wise to stay home with Pogo this time. Specially while it was rather cold.
As you say, there are always other occasions to have a little flight on the broomstick if you want.
