Halloween Night ...Part Two

Wings and Chili are always on the menu Halloween Night.

Bentley's all tuckered out. Trick-or-treat takes a lot out of a guy.

Halloween Night...part one


My daughter carved this pumpkin!

The trick-or-treaters really liked these treasure chests full of candy!

Part of the table...

Bentley...the pirate!

Fall frenzy

It's been a crazy week.
We just got back at 2:30 a.m. from a marathon of college visits for my daughter. It took four planes, several airport vans, tons of rental car driving, 3 hotels, and lots of walking, and of course flight delays..but we're home with several college visits complete!
Armed with all this information, it's up to her to choose the path she wants to take.

I've been foggy... in a traveler's fatigue sort of way... and haven't been able to get my act together today. To make matters's COLD outside! Nothing has been accomplished...I forgot an appointment...and there's lots of wash and cleaning to do.
Don't you dread those kind of days...when you walk around the day trying to find your center.
They're so frustrating!

What happened to lucky 7?

I guess it's a sign that I really am old. I'm starting to lose whole days now.

Today, I took the time to check my calendar countdown days...something seemed off. I counted again. There are really only 6 days until Halloween! Somewhere along the way, I got befuddled.
Which I admit is not that difficult. And you guys let me carry on in blissful ignorance:)

My kids popped the 3 Hershey Kisses that were in day 7's box and we moved on...

Yeah! Two treats today!

Gummi brains...(which mine seems to be made of lately.)

Special seasonal food...cranberry pecan bread. Nuts are "brain food," right?

And a special treat for me...these lovely wrapped gifts!

Opened to reveal...

Spooktacular creations from Melissa. dreamy!

Seasonal Activity...helping mom find her lost marbles.(which starts now, and usually doesn't end
until January 2...if we're lucky)
The final flowers before cold weather

These photos were taken a few days ago as I walked around my yard. Like me, the flowers are holding onto warm weather as long as they can.

I'm not a snow bunny. Winter is such a long season for me. And, I really miss the flowers.

Find a way

a path will take you there...or make your own
