Getting Ready For Halloween

October 29, 2017

Good morning.  Today is cloudy with temps in the sixties.  Even tonight will be another warm night.  But then the cooler day temps start and the nights will be getting downright chilly.  Autumn is settling in. 

My hands are feeling at a loss without the new yarn.  So, I made a couple more little red baby hats. I figure I'll work on them until the new yarn gets here.  Or if the calendars get here before that, I can start wrapping a few things. 

I also started reading my class book on Non Fiction writing.  My only problem is after reading a while, my eyes want to go to sleep.  I guess I'll have to put the discs in my laptop and listen for a while.  Either way, once I start to fall asleep, little stories start going through my mind.  Sad to say, they were all about the same character and his adventures.  Would you believe, in my mind I was writing stories about one of my dust bunny friends?  Don laugh, it could happen to you!!

Halloween will soon be here, and I have a photo to share of three of my beautiful great grandchildren in their costumes.  This is Alima, Lilah and Jack.  A Dorothy, a Zombie and a Gangster.  Awesome!

This is a very busy weekend for Joe.  One of his nieces got married yesterday, and Joe was part of the wedding party.  Today two of his great nieces are celebrating birthdays, so he''ll be busy going to parties and celebrating.  Here's a photo of Joe in his tuxedo just before he left for the wedding yesterday.

Other than that, it's been sort of quiet around here.  Next weekend though, I'll be going to see Jazzy perform in "Fiddler On The Roof."  I have a few photos that Deanne sent to me, and I'll post them tomorrow. 

Yesterday, while I was out in the kitchen (main house) I noticed that my Christmas cactus is loaded with buds and one bud is beginning to blossom.    I have a few other younger plants that were made from cuttings from this older plant, and I can't wait to see if any of them start blossoming soon.  Here's a photo of the first blossom that will bloom soon.

Today I goofed.  I posted an old Halloween kit, not realizing that I had already posted it earlier in the month.  So, I have deleted it and posted a different Halloween kit.  This one is for bookmarks.  I'm sorry for the inconvenience to anyone who has already read this post. 

Here is your download link:

The big night will soon be here for Pogo and me.  Here's hoping that we're up for the night's ride.  I've been being very careful not to catch any colds from anyone around me.  It will be super fun to see a lot of our witchy friends and their familiars.

Well, that's about all my news for this morning.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Every time I read your post I want to knit something. Since the weather is getting cooler I may have to dig out my yarn and start playing with it again. You are always inspiring me.

Joe looks very smart in his tuxedo!
Yeas, at the time I am writing these comments, Halloween is gone already. I tried to keep an eye open at the special night, but I think my eyes didn;t work with me. Sorry. Couldn;t wave to you and Pogo this time.LOL.
