My body is telling me it’s time for Halloween, Pumpkin Lattes, spice-scented candles and cool, breezy afternoons but instead, good ole Mother Nature is blasting us with 105 degree heat! It’s like an inferno out there!! But, that didn’t stop us from checking out all of the Halloween stores. Gosh, there are so many of them this year. Do you think it’s a sign that the economy is finally turning around? I swear, there is a store on every corner this year.
I love masks, but I can’t wear them over my glasses. Aren’t these pretty? I could wear them and stumble around blind as a bat but as entertaining as that might be to watch, it probably wouldn’t be all that much fun for me.
In other news, the Girl has lost quite a few teeth recently. Thank goodness because picture day had her with two horribly twisted “snaggle” teeth. I can’t wait to see how the pics turned out. I thought about having her skip them but these are memories after all. Right?
The Boy is going to be a scarecrow, a horrible disfigured one but the mask hasn’t come yet so he tried this one on for fun. Isn’t it horrible? I am thinking Stephen King’s IT.
The Hub just HAD to get in on the fun. I hate these masks the most. They show just enough eye detail to really freak you out. I had a mask on at one point too but The Hub cut my head off in the pic. He is always doing that so no, I do not have a photo of me in a mask.
However, another blogger did scare me quite a bit when she suggested that I read A Suitable Boy with her. It’s nearly 1500 pages long. What’s even more scary is that I just may do it. However, I went to the bookstore yesterday and they only had one copy and it was all tattered and torn. It’s not available for my Kindle either so I may need to order it.
I am off to a BBQ and for some time by the pool, but to be honest with you, I can’t stand it when it’s this hot. I would be just as happy staying in my nice, cool house with a book in my lap. What am I reading? Well, I just started Wolf Hall. Wish me luck!
