It is that time of year again when all the little ghost and goblins come out to get their treats. I remember fondly when I was a child and we would go out trick or treating. Also our elementary school always had a fun night for us costume judging contest, all kinds of games and of course apple cider and donuts. We lived in a small town and it was safe for we kids to walk to the school and back home. Although when we got to our street we ran all the way home because of some to the house had huge hedge bushes and it was kind of spooky. I always had candy for the kids who came around when my children were small and I took them out trick or treating. I miss those days. Last year I did not have one person come to the door. This year will be the same probably. I have candy but will more and likely give it to my grandchildren when they come over. I still decorate for all the holidays. The above picture is one of my decorations.
Have a safe and fun night.

I have a pesty woodpecker that has drilled holes in the trim boards around my house. My son-in-law noticed the damage last week. My son came over and looked at what the pesty woodpecker had done. He is going to spray for bugs first then fill the holes in with wood putty and then paint. I love God's creatures but dislike the damage they can do.

When I am not doing housework or working out in the yard this is what I have been doing in my spare time which I have lots of. Crocheted a pink baby afghan for my doctor's baby. Then I embroidered a pair of pillowcases which I will more then likely give as a gift to someone for Christmas. Next project will be to crochet a Christmas afghan for myself.

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne~ "October's the month when the smallest breeze gives us a shower of autumn leaves. Bonfires and pumpkins, leaves sailing down. October is red and golden and brown."~Author Unknown~
