I thought this new header would be fun to use over the coming Halloween weekend. It was made for me by a blogging friend who sent it to me a few days ago. I think it’s really cool that she’s got my house in there behind the spooky trees, plus George looks like he’s wigging out over those ghosts in the yard.
I also like that my avatar looks exactly like me.
About 30 years ago. I used to have a pair of skinny jeans just like that, too.
My husband took this photo of George yesterday, which I found in the camera this evening along with over 200 other images. He took several similar shots but the ones where George was facing the camera were blurry. This is the best of the bunch and I like how the black & white looks against the colorful trees.
When I got home yesterday, I noticed that my husband had decorated the pumpkins from the garden.
He used my pumpkin carving stencils from Williams Sonoma and copied them onto the pumpkins then colored them with magic marker. I really think they’re cool. The carved one at the top left is interesting with the stick in his cap and is that a real fly? Yes, just to the right of the stick is a big housefly, which adds the perfect touch, I believe.
He also strung the last of the garden peppers and hung them from the garage doors. We have four long strings and honestly, I think they look pretty festive.
If you’re like me and looking for a movie to watch around Halloween, here’s a list of suggestions from yesterday’s comment section. I put the scarier ones at the bottom. I haven’t seen several of them, so thanks to all for sharing your favorites.

I leave you with a scene from a great family Halloween movie. It’s Hocus Pocus (1993) starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy and a very young Thora Birch. I used to have a friend whose name was Thora.
Have a great Thursday, all. Thanks for stopping by.
