When witches go riding, and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
Mine was of the cleaning and tidying kind, not really my favourite but what could I do? So I rolled up my sleeves and went to work. Re-organizing the children’s closets and winterizing their wardrobe, putting away the Summer clothes that still fit, filling out a bag for donations. Then proceeding to do the same to my closet (still about a third to be done). As you can see it was fun 🙂
This Sunday also being the day before Halloween Darling Daughter and Sweet Son insisted in decorating the house. As a result we now have scary carved pumpkins (yummy soup later this week 😉 on our front steps. The one you see featured here has been carved by Sweet Son himself. A scary pillow stuffed monster with bloody hands is sitting on our front chair porch. Our front door is now completely covered in white spider cobwebs. The finishing touches are a rather ghoulish flying skeleton keeping company to a giant black fuzzy spider with red blinking eyes. I hope I did not scare you too much 😉
To her great dismay Darling Daughter’s knee brace does not fit in with the costume she had in mind, so she will forgo dressing up this year. Instead she will be opening our doors to the neighbourghood’s children and distribute all sorts of candies.
Just as I was starting to write this post I happen to notice that in exactly 6 days I will be publishing post # 500 which is really exciting to me. I want to share my joy with all of you dear friends. As luck would have it I have been contacted by a Scrapbooking Digital Software Company and I will be able to offer this to the winner of my giveaway. I have also been given
unique coupon code: STMMMS76506 for you my readers to get $10 off the software and $10 in store credit.
I don’t remember if I ever shared it before but Scrapbooking was my first love, way before photography came in the picture, pun intended 😉 So it seems only fitting to be able to do this now.
Here is what you have to do…Leave a comment here telling me what you would do should you win this giveaway. I’ll be announcing the winner next Monday. Good luck everyone :-).
P.S: I almost forgot to tell you I registered myself for NaNoWriMo (talk about scary stuff). The whole month of November I’ll be writing my heart away while letting go of my fears and my doubts. Do you want to join? I could use a friend…
