And here we are at the end..
How did it go by so fast?
We have not been to the howl-o-ween zoo event yet, that's opening this weekend
But Fear Farm was a good experience..I'm still alive, haha!
While I don't have photos from that night, I do have a couple from the
Great Pumpkin Festival held at our beautiful botanical gardens.
The morning started out cool but quickly heated it up.
Guess who wants a goat now??
Oh, we finally watched Light's Out.
it was spooky and I think
it's a good Halloween movie to own.
We made hot dogs, popcorn and set out movie theater candy,
then we turned out
all the lights and huddled up on the floor with blankets.
It was especially scary when, at a dramatic part of the film
This not so adorable cross eyed lump pushed a pan off of the counter..
I instantly aged 10 years!!
I've creating art all summer.
It's been an especially helpful activity for both of us this year,
It calms me down.
I made a couple of these Lydia Deetz dolls..
This vintage style cat...
And this little jester
Friday I took Helena to the public library and we ended up shopping at the store of discarded books.
It was FANTASTIC!
We left with so many books for us both!
it was all under 4 dollars!!!
afterwards we stopped by a thrift store and found this guy!
He's a good size and was only $2
This was 2.99 at Walgreens..
how creepy is that werewolf behind it?
I have one last short story to share in front of the fire
come close and listen......
What are your thoughts on ghosts?
My mom had so many stories about them..
I unfortunately cannot remember them all..
There was one that she thought about and retold
from time to time though..
When my mom and dad were newly married
they moved into a neighborhood that was very close to their families...
Her brother lived across the street..his sister and her husband lived down the block,
I think you get the picture.
my mom had an elderly aunt that was ill and couldn't walk correctly,
every time she walked she would drag her foot.
It was a very distinct sound.
When she became so ill she was was bed ridden, she told my mom..
"when I die, I'm going to come back and say goodbye to you, just you wait"
She passed away not long after...
My mom, of course, felt terrible..
That night, when it grew dark
my mom said she was sitting at the kitchen table when she heard the sliding door open.
She said she did not turn to look at her visitor..
the dragging of someones foot was loud enough to let her knew who it was.
I hope you enjoyed this years Haunted Humpday..
It really went by too quickly.
Thank you to everyone that participated and left comments,
You are awesome!!
I'll be back very soon.
