Isn’t she great? I love her. No batteries or anything in her yet. All my monsters came today and the Halloween candy. I come from Romeo, MI where we get national tv shows made about our decorating. Nobody seems to do much here, but I don’t care. Once I get my cauldron bubbling and my witch costume on, the little kids will be terrified. Got to position them not too close to the candy, though. But with my witch’s costume on and the bubbling cauldron, we should be quite the terror zone. The zombie went off and scared my dog but it doesn’t seem to go off much. Probably better. Scary sounding.
Here are the other two:
He’s gonna be pretty cool once I light him and get the tags off him and last but not least, zombies peeking out from under the ground cover.
I love them all!
I haven’t been writing. We had my dad’s celebration on the 21st and I’m trying to get my bearings. I have felt worse after the funeral which I knew would happen. Very sad here at home now. And quiet without his tv blaring 24/7. I wrote a nice eulogy and managed to give it somehow. Maybe I’ll post it this week. Today I am writing out thank you notes and probably rest of the week, getting his memorial book in order. I guess these are things you do.
His death was a long time coming, not the shock my mother’s was of a massive stroke at 64. But just makes me miss her all over again.
Been dreaming a lot, but not concentrating on my lucid dreaming or working on my novel yet. I dreamed my dad was alive but my brother died and I had to tell my dad that he’d been hit by a car walking down the road. God, that was awful. I’m really glad it was the other way around. That would have been a horrendous nightmare for sure. Terrible dream.
My diet has been a bit hit and miss. I’ve added whey protein and I’ve built a lot more muscle and strength, but need to get back to not cheating on keto/carnivore. I eat salads in summer and some garden fare since I love to garden. The cucumbers and peppers are coming on like crazy though the tomatoes were sparse this year. Got to go back to Early Girl. Tried an organic variety. And my second crop of lettuce is germinating and starting up now. My garlic was great and harvested all that and the potatoes. Will replant garlic next week. And need to use my small greenhouses earlier to get the tomatoes a better start next year since I do them from seed. I might cheat the tomatoes next year and buy them and get them under the mini greenhouses early. Or do half store bought and half seed. I’m moving some things out of the garden area, flowers and bushes so I have more area. My dad didn’t want to plant as much garden as my mom so put in some flowers and bushes on the end. Also going to do some landscaping and moving of hostas next year as well. But need to take pictures and get some landscaping design advice. I also have a neighbor very gifted at design of all sorts and her brother is a nursery guy as well. Says I can move my stuff around.
Better get to my thank you’s. Happy Tuesday.
