“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Haunted Humpday #5

How are you today?
It's our fifth Haunted Humpday already..
 There's only two more left!

June, July, and August are uphill months for us here..
September is a recovery month, kind of like
"oh, I'm still here and everything's still attached"...
But October... is, (as Stephen King says)
"Slicker than owl shit"
Now, I'm not sure how slick owl shit is, but I'll take his word for it.

 It's also the 12th night on the Countdown to Halloween!

I try and make everyday as 'Halloween filled' as possible during October.
Just to get out each and every little drop of magic.
This is done because I've always been this way..but I also do it for Helena..
(She needs all the magic she can get right now.)

We recently painted pumpkins..

 I even carved a mini pumpkin for her, because she thought it couldn't be done!

Last night we went for a walk at Tempe Town Lake.
It was gorgeous, the temperature was in the low 70's
and there was a delicious breeze moving. 
I didn't take any photos this time but you can bet we are going to go back there soon 
and I'll take so many!

Anyhow, afterwards we stopped by to get some snacks and found these
cute little slurpee holders at 7-11.
I just had to show you!


In honor of
 Breast Cancer Awareness month
I'd like to show you a little dessert we made the other night.
They're just cake pops, dipped in melted vanilla candy with a mini
chocolate chip in the center.
aren't they cute?

We always find time to create art
Every day. No matter how small the project is.
 We recently painted up some rocks..
She made a pumpkin

We both made ghouls.

I also have another painting to show you too.
She's brand new, I started her a while ago and kept adding  more and more, 
but now I think she's done.

Has anyone watched the Exorcist TV show?
If so what do you think?
I think it's okay..not great but maybe the really
good scares arrive later..

Is it cold where you live?
We are currently at 65 degrees and that's good enough to start a campfire.
why don't you come sit with me and listen closely.

One of our neighbors told me this story, years ago.
She lived in a small town somewhere in mexico.
when she was about 12 years old
One day
she overheard her aunt and mother talking about how 
one of the local teenage girls was causing trouble for her family
 disobeying her parents and refusing to go to church were among her transgressions.

Her mother and aunt were asked to stop by the church the next evening to pray for the family
She was brought along even though she really didn't want to go.
When they arrived
there were other people gathered there already. 
They started praying and were began to file into the church one by one.
She said they walked in and the first thing she noticed was how dark it was. 
Not one light was on.
Then she noticed that it was cold.
Cold for a warm night in June
 in a building without air conditioning.
She could hear screams and guttural voices drifting through the vestibule.

 As a group, they walked down the isle, then the priest tied a piece of yarn around the crucifix.
He then led them down a short hallway and they entered a small room.
The girl was there.
She was crouching in the darkest corner.
He tied the other end of the yarn to her ankle then they all prayed.
She said the noises filling the room were horrific.
She said she can still hear them in her head.
After the prayers they had to turn their back and walk out, one by one.
By the this time the inflicted one was barking and howling
swinging her hands at the congregation, trying to reach them, 
but she couldn't seem to get out of the corner.
They prayed more that night then returned to their homes,
She says she never knew what happened to the girl.
The family moved and no one heard from them again.

Well, it's 2 minutes until three A.M. and I'm freaked out so I'm going to call it a night.
In the mean time, here's a kitten in a pumpkin.
 Goodnight! and Happy Haunted Humpday to you!
