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.

And don’t forget the Pumpkins to carve…wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-45-04_1.jpg

Whatever October brings for you…Enjoy it!!!

But this post is about MONSTERS… this month reminds us of all kinds of Monsters…

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-47-52_1.jpg  Those from Horror movies and Bad Dreams…

and those Fun and Friendly ones…wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-52-47_1.jpg Like our friends from Monsters Inc.!

But they are not the only Monsters lurking in she shadows…

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-42-04_1.jpg   There are real life Monsters…Some of our Monsters Haunt our dreams, others walk around with us during the day…They can be all around us…Yelling in our ears…wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-54-47_1.jpg

Or Changing our outlook on life, making us believe we are less important than they are, and controlling our every move…

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-02-13-21_1.jpg  With Violence, and intimidation…

With Threats and Verbal abuse… wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-54-18_1.jpg

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-02-15-16_1.jpg  All Manner of Chaos and Mayhem!  True sources of consternation!

But….Like all the Pretend Monsters out there casting spells, and the scary creatures roaming our imaginations….wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-49-53_1.jpg

Yes it is hard…and seems like a never-ending stretch of road with no way out…and at times, it takes every ounce of strength we have to just get through the day.

But we can do it….we can do anything we set our minds to…I know…I’ve lived through some monstrous times in my life, and I am still here Blogging about it.

Oh it has been a long and scary road, still is, at this time of year especially.  I am constantly reminded of many of my Deamons…those that still lurk just beyond my control.  I am though, working on them and will continue to do so. Until one day…my monsters will only be the cute…

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-30-01-51-52_1.jpg  pretend ones we see on cartoons, and the fun witches, ghosts and goblins that come to the door each Halloween night…


When the Jack-O-Lanterns are carved…


and Treats abound…


Or we watch the scary movies on T.V. or in the theatres…


They are the only monsters I want to have in my life…and only once a year…Not all year-long.


Lets keep fighting the all the Monsters in our lives… Have a Safe and Fun October!

Thanks for Hearing!

Just Checking In

Where did it go? Did I do my Best?  Did I accomplish my goals?

Where did it go? Did I do my Best? Did I accomplish my goals?

Well it is the end of another Month.  September went by as quickly as the wind blows.

For me it was and eventful month…a lot of ups and downs, but it was endured.  I have met and exceeded a few of my goals, and I realize I have much more to do on achieving others.  I am a work in progress.

Thanks to all of you who are following…I would love comments and suggestions. I’d like to be able to use them as a guide to help me get better as I go.

My next blog post for tomorrow will be a Halloween of sorts theme… “Monsters” I will be entitling it.  So just because this one is very short and sweet…does not mean I am not working hard.

Today I felt the need to do some crafty things to de-stress.  I’m making Halloween themed coasters, etc., for a party a cousin is having…and a few others for good measure.

I've been busy since 3am.

Talk to you tomorrow…
