Happy Halloween!

Today is a wonderful day! It's Trick-or-Treat night! I look forward to this every year, and this year I even got special permission to miss my class. My area has tons of kids come, so it's really a big deal. I'm even going to have my parents and granddad over for a ghoulish treat! ;) And, Stephen is such a good sport. He plays along beautifully; I'm a lucky gal! Check out our pumpkins! I love them!


The witches fly
Across the sky,
The owls go, "Who? Who? Who?"
The black cats yowl
And green ghosts howl,
"Scary Halloween to you!" -Nina Willis Walter

Happy, Happy Halloween!!!

I'm still here. My life has been flipped lately. I lost my job in August and started grad school the next week. I had already planned to start school before I was laid off, so I'm looking at it as confirmation on my plan. Just wanting to let you know where I've been and what I've been up to. There isn't a whole lot of time (mostly money) to cook, decorate, create, etc. I miss it. I'll be getting back to it; don't give up on me! I'll be back in the swing of things as soon as I get comfortable in my new life. I'm so excited to see what the future holds. Stay tuned to see what unfolds!

I've been working on my crocheting skills. I have a project to show you, but my camera broke... Story of my recent life! :) I'm not letting it bring me down, I have plenty to be grateful for! Smile because it's October! My favorite three months are here! I hosted a Willow House party last week and had so much fun decorating for Halloween/fall. I have some wonderful recipes to share, too!
