Officially Halloween

It's Here!  Get the candy ready for the little goblins....

Tuesday, October 30, 2012


Lately we have a day of short sleeve weather, then on for a light jacket, and a few the big coat.  I wish Fall would last longer here like it does in some areas.

The storms will soon be coming in.
The rain we really need after the long drought this summer. Ground has large cracks and building foundations are shifting from the long siege of dry weather.

Then will will come the snow.  In this area you never know. Some years we barely see any. Then there will come a time when we have the "big one" that every one talks about.

I like Spring and Fall and a little rain now and then.  And I do like to see a pretty snow. But mostly I just endure the time from the holidays til Spring.

Like it or not winter will come.

I guess I will just suck it up....and maybe dance a little.

Halloween is almost here

Halloween is on its way. We have sacks put together for the grand kids and great grandkids. And some extras for other Tricker or Treaters.

But we better get another sack in case.  Some years we have lots, some not so much.  Depends on the weather, and also lots of organizations have someplace they can go and have candy and play games. Also after the parade some groups park their cars and have Trunk or Treat.  And the kids are satisfied and ready to go home.

Hope everyone has a spooky time.

Dallas, on the right, is going to be 4 years old.  We rescued him so we do not know exactly what day in October he was born so I chose 10-29-08. He was about 14 months old when we got him in Jan 2010.

Charlie, on the left, was born 11-20-07.  We brought him home from the breeder in February 08.  So he is going to be 5.

They will be needing birthday cupcakes here before long.
They wrestle.

 Snoop around.

Stand outside wanting in.

 Do not know what they were doing that I caught both with tounge out. Probably just had a treat.

 And most of all they keep us company and look cute.

Pumpkins and Scarecrow

 Getting in the mood for Fall..............

Jim and I decorated our pumpkins, mine is the girl.  As you can see neither of us mastered art class.

I am going to take what each day brings, and find some joy and good in it. 

We make our own happiness.

The excitement of Fall has arrived.  Looking forward to the Halloween Trick or Treaters. I need to get a pumpkin.

Thanksgiving will be her before long.  Always look forward to dinner at our daughters  and getting together with family. Good Food and fun.

This Season though it is the end of summer and winter will soon follow, gives me a lift.

I have been mulling lots of thoughts around in my head on things going on in your world. And I am baffled.

Out in Co there is a little 10 year old girl that started to go meet up with her friends and walk to school. She has not been seen since. They have found a body they will not identify as her yet, but most think it is. What were you thinking?

I read about young babies that have to go through some real tough treatment to survive and go home with their parents.

A friend's husband has tounge and throat cancer and is having devastaing treatments. Are you with us? He has a wife and daughter that would like for him to see his grandkids someday.

Jim has more bad days than good with the pain in his back and legs. I thought we would be doing some things to enjoy our 50 plus years together, but we are just wandering around day to day, not finding anything that will help him.

My Mom is almost 92, she is in pain all the time, her fragile skin itches til she is miserable. She barely eats, arms and legs are like sticks, and she cannot remember anything for more that 10 minutes. Why can't she go to be with my Dad and be released from her pain?

I imagine this big chess table in the heavens and you are shuffling these people I know, and many others around to pass the time rather than have any plan for them.

These are they days that you make me angry God. And it is scary to be angry at God.

Went back and looked at my blogs since I started, and I was having fun with them. The world seemed a brighter place. I need to quit feeling sorry for myself and looming in on how life sucks and just make better things happen.  I did nnot realize i had become as much a Debbie Downer and I am. WTH....


It is October already. Summer came and went.

Between a few good moments, mostly life sucks.
