Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

Happy October, Everyone!

Lo and behold, we've now been in our fourth straight day of beautiful, glorious Autumn... cool, clear, crisp, sunny, and utterly invigorating. What a welcome change, after three long weeks of dreary, drizzly grey misery! I looked out my window and saw a brightly-colored skink taking advantage of the dramatic change in weather by sunning itself on a tree stump. I took this photo of it right through the screen, so it may look a bit pixilated.

Today, in spite of a splitting headache and lack of sleep, I finished up three of my "Witch Potion" bottles. These are part of the decor for our upcoming Halloween party, and just a small part of the overall decorations we are creating to transform our old farmhouse into a Samhain World of Wonder!

I saved a bunch of glass jars and bottles, cleaned them thoroughly, and then drew up some hand-made potion labels. Painted the lids black, and wrapped rough twine around the necks of the jars. By filling the jars with water and a few drops of food coloring, then adding rubber bugs and whatnot, I've created some fun and creepy props to display around our home.

This is not by far the end! We have LOTS of decorations to continue, and only three weeks to do it.

Can you say, CRACK THE WHIP!????
