My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Boo! Happy Halloween

Hello everyone:
Tonight is not my favorite holiday.... if it is a holiday? I honestly never got excited over it. I know lots of people do. I went to Jo Anns last night & I swear there were 50 people crammed around the check stand, purchasing those last minute costume fabrics, trims & mask making supplies. Just tell me why did they wait til the night before halloween to make the costumes? It was 7 pm and I wandered over to Michaels store and Sure enough there were even more late shoppers there. I decided I needed a treat for me since I was tricked to think I could make a simple purchase of two items not related to Halloween, I went to the parking lot to get into my daughter in laws car and could not remember what kind of a car she had. I remembered it was dark blue/or green and a Toyota, but wouldnt ya know it there were 4 cars all the same color where I had parked. I did remember the baby seat frame was in the back seat fortunately so I peaked in all the windows & found the right one.... I was given instructions of how to get to Starbucks from Michaels parking lot and quickly ..and skipped over to Starbucks to be warmly welcomed & quickly served with a chai tea latte before returning to my sons house. That was my Treat for the night! until I got home to a very sweet baby waiting for his gramma to hold him... ( I assume he was waiting for me... wasn't he?) My son returned from doing a magic show and we were going to go eat out but as late as it was and decided by the time the baby was fed, mama changed his pants, get herself ready we could warm up some really good chicken soup that a nice neighbor had brought by earlier. So after full tummies & dry diaper we retired for the evening.. I had a nice treat earlier... Tonight I will accompany my son at a magic show presentation where he will preform.
I do like to decorate for fall with pumpkins fall leaves and scented candles and this is a great opportunity to open the Coming up holidays ( which I love) Thanksgiving and Christmas!
