Trick or Treat

i couldn't have asked for a better halloween day.
the leaves are in their most brilliant bolds, and the weather outside didn't even call for a coat.
the best part of the day had to be watching Denver do the monster mash.
it looked so fun, we all up and did it. oh, what a sight. a real graveyard smash i tell ya.
matter of fact, i'm kicking myself for not getting pictures, darn!
but i did remember to get pictures of them in their costumes,
hey, i think i'm getting the hang of this!

well, now I am offically bummed. 
my favorite holiday is gone with the wind.
 but now with all that said and done, its time to plan a #1 birthday party!

Happy Halloween friends.

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.

Happy Eyes

i drove around for a while today. just me, myself and i.
it was a day where if you didn't get out and enjoy the sunshine and breathtaking fall foliage,
 it would have been considered a sin.
my eyes were extremely happy today.
the only set back was being confronted by a cop who told me i cannot invent my own parking space anymore.
he must not know who i am! hmph. besides, this is my season, dag nabbit, my season!
here is a little peak at what the world looked like through my eyes today.

and if i ever were to go blind, they may as well rip my heart out as well.

Highest of heights, I climb this mountain and feel one with the rock and grit and solitude echoing back at me.

Fulton Farms

i cant believe october is half way over already.
it's been an awesome month so far and getting better as the leaves change and fall. 
soon the tree's will be naked.
i am so, so, SO in my element.
i'm gonna preserve autumn this year by canning the prettiest leaves i can find with the perfect fall scented air
and open them up later on in the year to cry over.
thats just gonna have to do until i can find a way to make it stay fall all year round.

Fulton Farms is absolutely beautiful this time of year,
it was the perfect way to spend such a perfect day.

 Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.

Vintage Find

me and nev went to goodwill today and found this goblin looking porcelin doll lady.
we figure anything this ugly is bound to be haunted.
her name is rose, and nev insisted we buy her.
she showed us three times before checking out that she can magically manifest herself
in different areas of the cart without us realizing it.
can you say c.r.e.e.p.y?

so far she has stayed in her designated areas since we have been home, (thank goodness)..
but i swear when i stare at her from a distance, it looks like she's breathing.
i'll keep her for a while just to see if anything happens.
(insert twighlight zone theme song here).

regardless, nev has agreed to keep her in her room. we'll see if that holds true.
after a few weeks, ill pass her to a friend who dares to test her as well.
anyone brave enough?
although, please note:
i cannot be held responsible for activity that may or may not occur once in your possession.
borrow at your own risk.

P.S. Another Realm Lives.

**UPDATE: Grandma Rose has been evicted!  I let a friend borrow her and she has been officially evicted from their residence as well.  She has been passed yet again to another friend, and waiting to hear any updates.
i have no desire to ever have her back in my possession. (excuse the pun).

Pinch me please

i can tell its fall around here when a cup of hot mocha is the first thing on my mind as i climb out of bed in the morning.
 when the sweet aroma of pumpkin spice candles fills the house, and chili is simmering in the crock pot well before noon. 
its the kind of morning where you cant decide whether to open the windows and doors to enjoy the fresh air,
or keep the house closed up, turn on the heat and curl up in a snuggie. 
 i went with the first one.
crisp, chilly autumn air is no doubt my number one weakness.
i think ill tuck myself away in the dark tonight and freak myself out over some haunting episodes and a warm bowl of chili.
now why cant every day be just this good?

only 26 days of october left...
 then its another 11 months of trying to breathe again.

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.  ~P.D. James

If My Soul We're A Season
By: Erica Trent

Alas! Once again I come alive
to breathe the chill in the air
and admire the miracle of Orange, Red, Green & yellow
swirling amongst me, as if summoning me
like a ghost within arms reach
I wake to the crackles beneath my feet, as I walk
for my soul has been in a slumber
I accept the riches of the golden sky
dripping mounds of patchwork leaves
splashing us with laughter
as I soak in the breeze
nature's masterpiece in brilliant bold
creating a magical tapestry of autumn madness
branded in my memory
but soon Autumn will fade away
as I fall into a slumber once more
like a withered crop
I descend from my mountaintop
as if reaching life's final stage
beyond the iron gate
my Jack O' Lantern will blaze
for this will be farewell
till the chill in the air returns
and I can breathe once more
next Autumn's eve..
