Halloween is Over

  • Mood: Happy
  • Weather: Clear and mild.

Well, Halloween is over for another year.  I had bought a package of candy, 70 pieces. I now have about 10 pieces left.  I think this was our heaviest year, yet.

One boy mooned me.  He had a costume with a bare rear (I hope).

Had my picture taken countless number of times with proud parents photographing their darlings.

Then there were two little ones. Must have been their first time. They weren't sure what to do but knew they were supposed to say something after getting candy. So they settle for saying 'Trick or Treat'.  Maybe next year they'll know enough to say 'Thank You' instead.

Then last, but not least, came the 'Toilet Paper Gang'. The wires in front of our house are now very well decorated. 

Hope you all had fun, too.

TaTa for now.

Another Rainy Day

  • Mood: Happy
  • Weather: Rainy

Well, my daughter wanted to know what is new in my life.  At my age, nothing thrilling or exciting is going on.  I'm glad when I wake up each morning. 

I enjoy making web pages on the computer.  It challenges my creativity.  Helps with color co-cordination and keeps my mind sharp.

I used to like doing crafts of all kinds, rug hooking, crocheting, knitting, plastic canvas crafts and painting.  But, with age and Arthur Itis in my life, the fingers are not as nibble.

One of these days, I will post my creations on my website for all to see and use.

TaTa for now.
