I’m continuing this fall theme I’ve had going for a while and will share some more of our fall vacation pictures. I’m sorry, but it really helps me not miss going to New England quite as much. Makes me realize how blessed we’ve been to make so many trips up there. I’d be hard pressed to pick my favorite. We’ve even returned to several locations.
Halloween in our family has always been pretty big. When the girls were little, we all put on costumes and went out trick or treating. Well, the girls collected. We didn’t. LOL My mom made many of my costumes when I was a kid, and I helped come up with ones for the girls when they were little. Not sure I actually sewed them. 😊
One of the girls had a costume party for her birthday one year. And now, with their own kids, costumes are still a big thing. We have the added celebration on that day because of the Ss-IL’s BD is Oct. 31. So their family has really celebrated this holiday.
Did you have any favorite costumes either as a kid or adult? Mine is always the gypsy girl. When I was a kid my mother made the costume for me. As an adult, I used my mother’s red satin full skirt with a net crinoline she’d used for something. I actually still have this skirt, but think I’ve passed it to younger daughter. No way could I hook the waist now. LOL I matched the skirt with a black silk round necked blouse and lots of necklaces, bracelets, and special earrings of my mom’s, which I still have. Wore a red long scarf in my hair. This was just the best.
(Okay, so I went to look for a picture of the Gypsy costume. Went through all 25 or so photo albums. In the process, I dusted and mopped where we keep them under a bench against our windows.
Saw some neat pics of our daughters, which I’ve shared above, but not the one of me I was looking for. However, I found the skirt and blouse hanging in my second closet. The fact I still have it indicates how special this outfit was too me. Partly because it was from my mom and partly, because I felt so special in the get up.)
Are your kids or grands going out this year? How do you feel about this year from a safety standpoint?
Have you voted yet? We did on Tuesday, Oct. 20. Took only 25 minutes. No incidents. I’d worried over nothing. Hmmm. What can I learn from that? 😊 Feels really good. Now if there was some way after you voted, technology figured a way to stop sending commercials your way. LOL
I’m almost ready to upload THE THEATRE to iTunes. For some reason it never got published there. I’ve revised it a bit and will probably change it up on all the sites. I hadn’t read this book in several years. My goodness. It’s hot! LOL I didn’t remember that. Recently, someone asked me about the heat level in my books. Each one is different, depending on what the story needed. Probably, THE THEATRE is the hottest, followed by SECOND ACT, TRUTH BE TOLD, VERMONT ESCAPE. The other four are pretty mild.
Still waiting for the print version of TAINTED.
Monday, I hosted my friend Carolyn Rae here. She hosted me on her site. Here’s the link. https://bit.ly/34cJs07
