There were about 5 pumpkins outside Michaels on the sidewalk and NOTHING inside. What happened to Halloween??? I couldn't even find anything for Thanksgiving. It was Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!!! When I asked the salesgirl, she said there was a rack of sale stuff I could check out. Yeah right ... all the "stuff" no one wanted to buy was stacked on one small shelf in the corner. You know, the bags for treats (who puts treats in bags??) ... the gaudy cheap plastic trays for your fancy Halloween party appetizers ... the molded cookie trays to make yummy fingers ... nothing that was on MY list!!
So when I got home with NO bags of cool decorations to hang up, I pulled out my old boyfriend, Slim. He's lost a little weight since I hung him in the closet, but this gave me a GREAT idea. If I can't decorate my house, I'll decorate my car and rig. From now on, this guy will be my passenger in the Jeep and my Co-Pilot in the rig!! That should help bring Halloween the attention it deserves!!!
First thing on the list today is the crock pot ... I'm going to fill it with chili verde ... dinner for a week at least ... but I was sidetracked by the beautiful sunrise!! Yup this is a RISE, not a SET!! Pretty gorgeous, don't you think??
The amazing part was that it covered the entire sky. This shot is looking East ...
With this one looking West a few minutes later. Pretty cool .... literally. In the morning the light is always cool and blue. In the evening, warm and golden, hence the Golden Hour, which is the best for taking all those family portraits!!
Time to get to work ... look out pork butt ... I'm coming to chop you to pieces!! Dinner's calling. Maybe a little later I'll check out the Dollar Store for a couple of table decorations.
