Trick or Treat

 Every year, for as far back as I can remember, we have been decorating for Halloween. The "scarecrow" was just that, 20 years ago, but when my son realized he was a horror junkie, it transformed into something more creepy every year. From the straw hat, that became a the huge hands he created in his lab!!!

It certainly looks scarier at night, with the fog machine, and the taped sounds of chains, screams and moans. The strobe light adds an air of mystery.

Happy Halloween to all my friends.....don't eat too much chocolate!

these are a few of my favorite things

As I try to create another post, I am drawn to my reasons for wanting to do so. As anyone who knows me knows, that my cottage is near and dear to my heart and soul. My husband and I spend as much time as possible tending to its needs. It has been both a rewarding and satisfying experience, throughout the last 15 years. Also a very demanding one.

As you can see from the photo it truly is a dream cottage. As I continue my blogging, I will show many more photos of our place...the flowers...the creatures...... and our visitors.

first REAL blog

This is my first real paragraph of my new blog. Not really sure what to write about,as I have been "house bound" for 3 weeks,after falling and severely spraining my right ankle. On top of that,I also pulled the ligaments,which aggrevated an old injury of the same nature to the same foot, about 30 years ago......but I digress.

I was fitted with an "air boot" which enables me to walk, and remove, as I see fit.When I try to go without said "air boot", I usually pay for it the next day. Today,I decided to head boot...and get some halloween candy, for the trick-or-treaters. Made out pretty well,I must say. Even stopped by to see my friend who has been housebound for 7 weeks already,and is going out of her skull.....

When I arrived back home, I took some pictures of the fall flowers....ahhhhhhh favorite subject.

I even managed to find a caterpillar making his way to wherever!!

Have a great day.....
