I checked my email inbox this morning and saw an advert for zombie skin. I was momentarily perplexed, not a great advert for moisturiser I thought, until I remembered it’s Halloween tomorrow.
Time to do the Time Warp again.. it’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right…
I haven’t got my pumpkin yet but I will. I carve one every year and get sweets in for the passing trick or treaters in their wonderful costumes.
I love it…
Last year’s photos I’m afraid, I need to get going and get one done today!
Can’t have Halloween without spiders.
I don’t love them, I did a thing at London zoo once. It was called the ‘friendly spider programme’ and covered all things arachnid. I was going to a country with big ones and thought I should prepare myself. I ended up by holding a tarantula (bottom photo). The weird thing was, it was less scary than the ones you get in the bath!
Just shows that mind over matter can work, I never thought I’d happily allow a tarantula to sit on my palm. It felt furry like a mouse.
Any way, back to the season…
So, if October is, for me, synonymous with Halloween its also linked with orange, that gorgeous, uplifting colour and by association with falling leaves…end of summer…start of winter.
A step too far maybe? A bit to go before winter? We did have frost for the first time this morning though.
I took this photo of Ziggy on his walk the other day, I was admiring the carpet of leaves and it was a glorious sunny day.
It’s been a lovely colourful Autumn and the weather has been better than summer for some days.
A new season and a new (or renewed) enterprise for me
I’ve been busy over the past week. I used to have a website where I sold handmade and vintage jewellery and accessories, I also did fairs. I stopped a few years ago because of the job I was doing, I didn’t have enough time or energy.
After spending this year trying different things out, I finally decided to start again. In a smaller way than before, no fairs and no pressure.
I had forgotten how much effort is required to take half decent photos, upload them and then write descriptions of everything! Consequently, at the rate I’m going I may have a couple of dozen done by the end of the year, lol!
Have a good week. If you’re having a Halloween party, or carving pumpkins, have fun!
