Trick ‘r Trend


Em I’ll have the Treat, thanks, stupid question really. My favourite time of the year, Halloween, such a big kid, I love everything about it. It’s really the one time I can act my age (in my head) and get up to no good, my niece asked me the other day, what is Halloween? Huh. How do you explain to a seven-year old without scaring the beep out of her. So for my Halloween night I will be hosting a scary party in my moms for niece and all the little monsters, Yep I will be dressing up too.

Some Halloween treats.

Nope it’s not painted, I thought that too, you can actually buy seeds for white pumpkins at Amazon.com.

Now these pumpkins are painted, brilliant in different shades of gold, it probably takes the same time to paint one as to carve one, Country Living.

Now that’s the perfect way to use a pumpkin, great idea.

Ok that’s enough browsing (dreaming) for today, have to take Roxy (dog) to vet. Dear Roxy is on a diet, when I came back from shopping the contents of the kitchen bin was all over the kitchen floor. In the bin there WAS a chicken carcass (the one time I didn’t make soup with it) hungry dog ate the whole flippin thing, so off to the vets with dog full of chicken bones.
