Halloween Party

Vanessa is having a Halloween Party.

Thank you Vanessa for your magical blog.

You have helped me get through some very rough days this year.

I've always LOVED Halloween.

I love all the colors, the smells, the pumpkins.

Maybe because it's a couple days after my birthday.

Maybe it's because when we were kids I could always borrow some of my


skirts, scarves, jewelry and be a


Maybe it's because I have a dark side.

A side that love zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts and

other things that go bump in the night.


follow the ghost lights

to a welcome.

We can chat and have popcorn,pumpkin roll (I had plans to make pumpkin cupcakes today

but I've done something to my knee so no cooking for me)

and drink some hot apple cider.

(With spices of course).

Or maybe you would like some hot tea.

It is the south so of course there is some iced tea.

Maybe a Honey crisp apple is more to your liking.

Pull up a chair

get cozy and we will watch

a movie, or two.

Maybe a book is more to your liking

with stories by Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, Ramsey Campbell or Stephen King among many others. (A recent find at Barnes and Noble).

Don't mind the ghosts, they are all friendly here.

We can watch the witches.

Glad you stopped by for a visit.
Well, doesn't everyone have a grave in the garden?

  3. I'd definitely like a honey crisp apple, one of my favorites! Happy birthday a bit early! My birthday is just after Halloween and when I was little and people asked when my birthday was, I would reply, "Two days after Halloween." I was such a dork and still am.
