November Beginnings

The Halloween decorations have finally made it to the basement. One of the many joys of having a constantly growing teenager in your house is there now almost always, someone who can finally lift the heavy and put things away on top shelves.
I was out in the backyard with Jackie the other morning. It was much to rainy to go for a walk.
Drivers just do not seem to care that there are massive puddles in the roads and the poor pedestrians do not wish to drown on their way to the post office. So, we stayed within the safety of our own yard.
Almost everything is dead or dying in my gardens. It is all very brown, black and muddy. There is however, one exception.
The red really stood out!

My lemon tree is enjoying its relocation.
The lemon is actually starting to turn well, yellow.

I was starting to wonder how long it takes for a lemon to ripen.

I was feeling rather adventurous yesterday and decided to make bread for Bruschetta.
Napoleon was a big help.

I was very helpful!

Looks like another rainy day here. We will binge watch some television shows and maybe knit a bit.
Have a good day everyone!

Happy Halloween!

What an exciting time!
Even Jackie had a bath to help celebrate.
Well, that is not entirely true.
We keep Jackie upstairs in the bedroom behind closed doors.
That many trick or treators that come to the door would do her little head in.
The bath was to help do away with the itchies she had been experiencing.

Now we are a little bit more hyper as opposed to calmer. I have no idea what they put in that dog shampoo.
The weather was absolutely perfect.
There were clouds, but not the ones that threaten rain as we have had for the past two weeks.

A perfect night for ghouls and goblins.

The marionette was able to escape her puppeteer and shell out candy.

Dark Link jumped out of the video game to hold perfectly still in our world and scare the living bejeebus out of people as they passed by.

A giant scarecrow took his job a little too seriously and scared anyone or thing that walked onto the property.

It was a really horrific scarecrow.

There were a lot of screams this year. A lot of screams!
It was a great time celebrated by lots of chocolate and stickers.
The only down side were the amount of parents staring at their cell phones.
In one instance, a Mom was so into whatever she was looking at, she lost sight of her children.
Thankfully the scarecrow had them in his sights and was able to direct a very frantic mother in the right direction.

Now all the spiders and skeletons, all of the ghosts and cobwebs have been put away for another year.
I hope you all had a great time!
