About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of three. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and will have been married for 57 years this February.

It's a beautiful day somewhere but certainly not here... We're having wet snow, rain, freezing rain, hail, cold north  east winds, a totally miserable day... I'm thinking of the poor wild animals and the neglected pets out there in this wet and cold weather and I hope they have found a safe and dry place to hide.

It  got cold and damp in the house and I had to turn the thermostat up to heat this big house with electric heat. I usually have a wood stove to keep the house relatively warm but I won't get my stove delivered until November 27th.


We had 0 kids coming to the door again this year. It's been like that for several years now as there are no little kids in our neighbourhood anymore. I bought a bag of chocolate bars and divided it between my son Vaughan, Jordyn and George. I'm spared the calories because I can't have that stuff.

Here are some photos that Christine sent me. They usually go all out for Halloween but this year was kept at a lower key but I think she is still miles ahead of me when it comes to celebrating Halloween.
Good job you guys...

James and Daniel admiring Daddy's awesome carved pumpkins. Watch your fingers Daniel. It just might bite.

Oh dear, I bet this is The Cat In The Hat in the Hall... This is mama's awesome handiwork.

Oh by golly, it a James The Cat In The Hat getting ready for Trick or Treat...

The whole family go trick or treating and I bet the camera has to work all by itself... good job you guys. I see Daniel is not feeling his usual cheery self on Halloween night. He had a little fever the next day.

Ooopps,  crazy upside down  pumpkin is trying to do some tricks for a treat I think, but it's a scary pumpkin just the same.

A haunted tree pumpkin ready to grab your legs and pull you in when you pass by.  Great job on this spectacular pumpkin Joe...

I would feel real safe going trick and treating with a Fireman and The Cat In The Hat, wouldn't you?

I've never seen such a cute Fireman right down to the hat and boots... and A Cat In The Hat too , have you? Oh I love those nice whiskers and the red nose. That big hat is TALL... Mama, you do such nice work.

Mom and Dad decorated the house to scare the Trick or Treaters  with skeleton, tombstone, spider webs and even a big black cat. They still got 100 kids that came to the door. It looks like a goblin on the right hand corner but I can't make out what it is...

Mama and James buried under a pile of leaves. It's so much fun playing in the fallen leaves. I wish I could join you guys. At first I thought that James belly was showing but on second look I saw it was Mama's hand, lol...

I hope you all had a safe and Happy Halloween.
