I hated Halloween as a kid, it was scary and cold and too full of strangers. But my kids enjoyed the holiday so much, particularly after living in this house that it’s become something fun for me. Much fun.

I made Bat Punch and may have black dyed fingers well into November.

I wore a costume, sort of.

And set up the Spooky Town.

We had a lot of fun.

Until next year……


Small victories in a single life


I had a hard time removing the bolts from my old and dilapidated mailbox. It got dark and I had to leave the last until morning, but it did not defeat me!

I have a new mail box and the post painted to match. I am very pleased.
