Happy Hallowe'en

Happy Hallowe'en .......

Sierah was home last week so we decided to buy a pumpkin early as she enjoys the carving more than either John or I or Holly for that matter.  The best part as far as I'm concerned are the seeds ... with lots of salt and butter.  Not a heart smart choice by an means but delicious all the same.  This year I held off buying any candy until yesterday since I've been known in years past to plow through a box of 100 chocolate bars in record time.  What I really need to do is buy candy that I don't particularly like but since I can't think of any off the top of my head ... I must practice discipline.  Although I do despise rockets and that horrible brown sticky toffee wrapped in waxy wrappers wth a pumpkin face on it but even I wouldn't inflict that on anyone.  When I was a kid that's all we got along with this crazy old lady who threw apples at us as we were walking onto her porch.  Speaking of traumatizing childhood Hallowe'en experiences .... one of my favourite episodes of Modern Family aired last week......that show never fails to crack me up.  Watch a clip here

These three new pieces will probably head up to the Silverbridge Gallery this week......

A Walk Is Good For The Soul

I can't seem to get enough of this time of year although I've been disappointed with the lack of sunshine....Sunday turned out to be a day worth yelling "hallelujah" about.

Holly and I decided to take a walk... cause don't you know...walks are good for the soul

Saw a cool fort in the middle of the woods.........

On studio front I'm currently working on these............

Wherever you are today .... make it a good one....

Big Time Love

THIS looks Amazing.....

I'm a big sucker for a feel good flick

A Love Affair With Autumn

Thanksgiving weekend was as perfect a weather weekend as you could possibly dream of but everyday after that has quite frankly .... sucked.  More rain than my Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can about dreary and depressing.  So on Sunday when the sun made itself known I was one happy girl.  It was still chilly as the clouds swirled about overhead but when the warmth hit my face .... bliss.

My sister was up from the city with her man so we all took a walk after breakfast......

And then of course there was the removal of all those gorgeous leaves.....
