I have benn thinking alot about Halloween now. I saw some paper lantern bags in the bargain shop the other morning. they are sold as part of summer decorations. You put sand or pebbles in it along with a tealight candle and put them in the garden. I was thinking they would look great lining my pathway on Halloween night. They are all white so it should be easy to add a little something to it to make it Halloween themed. I am so excited Autumn is my favourite season. This year I really want to put more effort into decorating the front garden. No one else does much on our street so it will be a treat for the little ones in the neighbourhood.
I love Halloween & Autumn, too!!

I think that sounds like a great idea, Festive Spirit!!
Everyone will want to stop by!! 🎃

The restaurant was very posh and fancy, and I was trying to find ways to tell Made I couldn't afford to eat there, but he was insistent we stay. Not sure why I dreamed that...maybe because we were talking about eating yesterday!
It was a very funny dream. I guess Made is Mr. Uppity Fancy Pants.
I can see that =]

I can just see you ordering a steak, and him asking for a gourmet peanut butter sandwich

Congrats to your daughter! Sorry to hear about your food allergies! Hopefully they can be easily brought under control!!



Did you see me??? That was so fun even though it got so c-c-c-cold out there!!



Sounds like you had a FUN evening!!!!



Sorry to hear you won't be getting the hours you were looking fwd too! Maybe that will be an option in the future! Hopefully!




Merry Christmas to you too!!



Hope you are feeling better every day!! Enjoy QVC!



Well if that doesn't make her feel better, what will?? Hee hee hee! Maybe you should go to dancers house! Lol!



I want to come to your house!!! Bet it smells wonderful! I'm mad at myself for not getting up & walking this morning! I missed out on a long sleeve t-shirt kind of walking morning! I was too tired after a week of partying with my brother & the race last night. Thankfully tomorrow morning is supposed to be more of the same!

Like I said - the race was a lot of fun last night. I'm glad we went! I was hoping Ryan Newman was going to pull out the win, but no such luck! We pulled in the driveway at 12:11, so wasn't too late! We know a back way out to avoid ALL THAT TRAFFIC! Geesh!
Not a whole lot going on at work today, but enough to keep busy - wishing I was outside! What a beautiful day!! Make it a great Christmas In July day!!!
Thank you, Holiday!!

Hope you're doing well, girl!!

Hopefully we can get those seats again next year! Other times we have always sat in the grand stands, under cover. This was more fun!
Sounds like an awesome race!! Glad you guys had a blast!!

I promise they were for medicinal purposes!

You're welcome! We are doing good - thank you for asking! Lucy took two of her kittens out to the pond a few days ago and came back without them. She spent the past couple of days looking for them. It is quite overgrown out there so I wasn't much help to her. This morning the missing siblings were on the porch looking for their daily helping of kitten food. Mags, their sister, was so happy to see them. She stays close to the house. If I didn't have Palmer, I'd have Mags in the house - she is a sweetie! The weather is gorgeous and I am going to have as many windows open as I can. With Christmas music blasting away work should go by fast!!! Have a wonderful day, my friend! {{{HUGS}}}
