October is moving right along and...I have a confession to make. I have not pulled any boxes from the attic...a lot of the usual Halloween goodies have not made an appearance this year.
Of course, Mrs. Begg is here...she lives in the hall closet, so it was easy enough to convince her to come sit for a spell in the living room.
The other Mrs. Begg is visiting as well.
And the newly acquired witch noisemaker is quite comfortable nestled in the bittersweet on the bookcase.
A big road trip, holiday sewing and hooking goods for my friend's shop, life in general...I turned around and October was nearly spent.
My confession...I don't miss all the "stuff".. Of course, the pieces that are stored in the nooks and crannies of the house are out, and we have been enjoying them all month. The ceramic pumpkin that Annie's grandmother bought her when she was four...out and lit every evening. My favorites from some very talented folk artists...out and making us smile every day. What on earth is in all those boxes in the attic?
Less than usual...but more than enough.
Annie and I put up our spiders yesterday.
These rubbery lovelies stick to the glass. At night, when the porch light is on, their silhouettes are reflected on the walls in the entry way and it looks like spiders are crawling the walls. Very fun!
And we found some witches flying past the bathroom window!
... a pumpkin here and there
...a few favorites
Less is more...wise words, indeed.
Dad is on the job! Filling the feeder for our many feathered friends.
Do you like his outfit? On the days he does not run...Monday, Wednesday and Friday...he lifts weights...in the backyard. Yes, I have a weight bench in my backyard! It's situated so it's out of view from the house. What can I say? It keeps him happy and healthy! I think he's in pretty good shape for a guy in his mid fifties. The outfit is mosquito defense...he wears it Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall. Look how nicely he goes with the chairs and pillows!
Hope you are having a wonderful October week!
Enjoy the day,
