Preparing for Halloween

I realize that I already did a blog at the beginning of the month about Halloween..but that was before my Wonderful Aunt came to visit me.

This lady is so very talented, crafty and comes to visit me bringing an array of things to do or decorate with.  We got together recently and she brought a project that was sooooo much fun.

You know the Fairy pot craze…

Not this cute little version...No...we need something more befitting the occasion...

Well, because we both love Halloween…she thought it would be fun to do a Halloween themed version.  It was Great.  We made a dirty mess…and had food, drinks (cranberry, lime, and sprite…no spirits…we will save that for Halloween), laughed, and made fun Halloween Fairy pots.

Then we set about decorating…such a good time shared with a Beautiful lady.  I’m so blessed to have Family and Friends who support me, even in my craziest of times.

I’m going to show pictures of our Mess, the finished product and the corner of my Kitchen that is now decorated with wonderful things she gave to me.  I Thank her for all the kindness she always shows to me…for the passion she exudes for any holiday, and for making life a little more fun to be in.  I Love you!!!

Now a look at the corner in my Kitchen, where I have the perfect view of all the fun Halloween decorations…


It is better at night, because they all light up or glow in the dark…

Now we cannot forget the wonderfully fun cup she brought me…

Of course I don’t like eggs…they are the scariest part of this thing…But I made them after she left…for my children…who devoured them.  We found it on Pinterest and we both decided to make them for dinner.

She also brought a book.  She knows I love to read and write.  I will read just about any genre.  This one is a children’s book about Halloween by Barbara Robinson, and it is Titled “The Worst-Best Halloween ever.

Just so you know what to look for...Great for young and old alike.

The book is about the Herdman Kids, who love to cause mayhem on Halloween and every day for that matter.  But this year the Mayor cancels Halloween, so the town will not be subject to the Herdmans disastrous ways….but will it work?  You will have to read the book to find out.  I promise anyone who reads this will find the child in them again.  It is a fun read.  Pick up a copy and read it yourself or read it with your children. You won’t be disappointed.

All in all, it was a delightful day.  A Great way to De-Stress…My journey continues.

Thanks for Hearing this BOO-tiful tale.

Ending Work Week Early (To Have Fun)


I am ending my work week early…I know it is Thursday, and I have only been Hard at work since Monday, but….

I was writing away this morning, and then I received a phone call from my Oldest Son, and because he and his Fiance are going to be on opposite work schedules…They only have this weekend to spend some time together, before they will not have much quality time alone for a while.  So, I get to reap the rewards, as it were…because His Fiance’s Daughter (I am Nanna now) is coming over to spend the night tomorrow.  Yeah!!!!!!!   Girl time for me….did not get that much, as I had all boys!  Though I always Love spending time with Children, when else do you get to act like a Kid…no matter how old you are?

So,  because of what writing about this subject does to me, and with having a small child here….I want my mind to be at it’s best, and cut down the risk of me having a flashback and scaring her unintentionally.  I have decided to give the Hard stuff a rest for the weekend.  I will be back on Monday, and will work harder than ever, since, I know I am going to have a Great time…I always do when Children are around…they are the BEST MEDICINE, I always say!  I know I enjoy it whenever I have nieces and nephews over, and now another little one in the mix…Couldn’t be happier!

I have even gone on Pinterest to get some new ideas, for fun projects to do…Here are some that I am thinking about doing…

Who does not like balloons, especially as a rocket?!!!
