It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Thursday is Hallowe’en, my favourite day on the calendar. Hallowe’en, that is, not Thursday.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly at The Caffeinated Reviewer. You should check out her blog. And then check out the blogs of all the other awesome folks doing the Sunday Post. There are links. Lots and lots of links.
Prepping for Hallowe’en
I usually carve a couple of pumpkins every year. Last year I picked up a couple of foam cutting tools. They really do a great job on those hollow faux pumpkins from Michaels. At least, they do once you figure out how to use them.
I’m starting to feel my years, though. I don’t have as much energy right now for the finer details. I bought two real pumpkins, so I think a couple of simple designs will have to do. If you take a gander at the small pumpkin gallery below, you’ll see an example of the work I can do when the weather and the Advil co-operate.
The Husbeast is on vacation for the next two weeks, so we’ll see what we get up to. Usually we go for walks in the crisp Autumn air, or trips to the Zoo. It looks like Mother Nature has other ideas.
Last week on the blog:
Monday: Review: Will my Cat Eat My Eyeballs? Big Questions from Tiny Mortals about Death
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday: Change a few book titles why don’t you?
Wednesday: WWBC: The Recommended Reading List
Thursday: Throwback Thursday to That Time I Knit a Sock and Read Hex
Friday: Friday Friday Friday
Saturday: Review: The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith
Holy heck, including the Sunday Post, that’s a whole week of updates!
Pictures of pumpkins. It wouldn’t be Hallowe’en without pictures of pumpkins.
What I’m up to:
I’m currently reading Microphones & Murder by Erin Huss. I’m only around page 40 and still trying to figure out what I think about the book so far.
The Remaking: A Novel by Clay McLeod Chapman. Thank you to Quirk Books!
I may need to take a bit of a brain break and read a book for purely hedonistic purposes. Possibly the new J. D. Robb or Stephen King.
How’s everyone else’s week gone?
