Happy Halloween

The Witching Hour

In the darkness of the night,
lights are dim and moonlight bright.

Fear sends shivers up my spine,
As something follows close behind.

Afraid to turn my head to see,
Just what it is that follows me.

Instead I coax my feet to run,
my heart is pounding this ain’t fun.

The witching hour shadows fall,
upon the streets and up the wall.

Screaming silence in the night,
I tremble as I sense the fright.

I wildly scramble to my door,
Then tumble in onto the floor.

Breathing heavily I lock doors tight,
to keep the evil out this night.

I make my way up to my bed,
I pull the cover over my head.

I say a prayer that I awake,
to see the sun the next daybreak.

The Wedding

As you know my niece was married on September 12th, and I promised to post some pictures. Unfortunately my camera didn’t work, and as I snapped away little did I know that all my pictures did not come out.

Well my sister forwarded me some of her pictures and I take great pleasure in introducing you to the Bride and Groom…Ben and Rose (sorry no last names here)

I may be partial here but I think she is a beautiful young lady, and an absolutely gorgeous bride. Okay, okay the groom is handsome too.

The Bridesmaids wearing the custom made necklaces to match their dresses, and my niece in her special necklace.

Now they didn’t want to have the traditional sign in book, but instead a poster that was made by Tommy my nephew, who is attending art school. The poster is a character of the Bride and Groom. Tommy is on the left side of the poster adding a coment.

I will post the cake topper as soon as I get a picture.

Love is a precious gift, that becomes more valuable each time it is given away.

Solo Trip

The wedding was great; none of my pictures came out. I am waiting to get pictures from my sister and then I will post them. The necklaces looked nice on the girls. The cake topper my sister made for the cake was "the best", it was the bride and the groom riding away on a motorcycle.

Two days later I escaped for awhile to South Carolina, it was the first time I made the drive by myself. I guess I felt brave because I now have a GPS. I will admit it scared me a bit because it took me a different way then I thought that it would. In fact I started to panic thinking I was getting lost, but I calmed myself down and just followed the route that it put me on. I reached my destination without a problem, an opportunity to see my son.

In the morning at breakfast my son and I talked and he told me that while pulling weeds on the side of the house he came face to face with a creepy spider, colored black and yellow. I asked was it by the air conditioner? He informed me that is where it was.

I chuckled and told him the year before when I was at the house I found a spider there too. In fact it was exactly like the one he described; l don’t know the life span of spiders, so to say it is the same one would be stretching it.

I went out to see it later that day and sure enough it was in the same spot a bit skinnier then the one I saw last year, and two bushes away was another one a bit smaller. I till this day do not know what kind of spider it is, but I just left him be.

I enjoyed the visit with my son time went by very fast. I can say that I was relaxed and while he spent time at work I spent time viewing TV and making jewelry. At the end of the week I bid my farewell, and headed for New York.

"A mother's love can not be measured by miles, nor the distance she feels in her heart. It is whispered in her midnight prayers, as she asks God to watchover and guide her children, never leave them alone. Then she asks for strength to keep her mouth shut."
