Happy Halloween

I took this picture last weekend just before sunset. Isn't it pretty?

It has nothing to do with my post today but I like it so there. It's Halloween! Lots of treat or treaters out tonight. I miss the days of taking my kids door to door. We used to go to a neighborhood called Cherokee. It was built in the 50's and the houses are really close together and they all really get into the spirit. Most residents sit on their front porches and truly enjoy the kids and all of the costumes. Stephanie got her fair share of candies from those fine folks.

Abby will be a pirate this year. She has her "Ahoy Maty" down pat. She came by last night while her parents visited a haunted house nearby our house. Can you believe that out in the middle of nowhere there is one of the most visited haunted houses around these parts? Anyway Abby was full of piss and vinegar as usual. She had a bite to eat then wanted ice cream. Well, what kind of Grandmother would I be if I denied that to my precious? She wanted Papa Joe to eat with her so that gave him an excuse to have a heaping bowl of chocolate and peanut butter ice cream. I was a good girl and didn't have any....caffeine don't ya know. Oh, and by the way, it still sucks not having any. Yes, I find every outlet to bitch about my caffeine free existence these days.

You might use this as a good excuse to rid your life of caffeine?

Have a happy Halloween and I hope Abby enjoys being a pirate. You could also teach her "Shiver me timbers".

I have had that exact thought So. I could switch to decaff tea and diet rite soda and stuff. So far today no headache! I am hoping that continues though tomorrow when the test is done.

Yes Syd that is a good idea. I'll have to do that when we see her this evening. She will be a doll no matter what she wears!

Scott and I lived in Cherokee when we first moved home with Madison. It was a rental home....the neighborhood was fun....your picture is beautiful....Miller was going to be a pirate but I didnt think he would leave the patch over his eye...so a bat it is....maybe next year.
