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.
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
Wishing my grandson, Adam, a very happy birthday. He
is seventeen today. He plays football, volunteers at
the zoo on Saturdays, has been making all A's in school
since he first started. A thoughtful, caring young man.
Have a blessed day and a wonderful birthday.. Love you.
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.
Happy Birthday sweet daughter. You are a wonderful wife, mother,
and thoughtful daughter. You have been a big help to me in this
trying time as well as before. I wish for you a blessed day and
that God continues to bless you and your family. Have a wonderful
day. Love you
