October 31, 2018: Between the Worlds

Halloween is usually the best holiday, since it’s an amazing time to dress up as a different personality, and be at one with the paranormal. It’s said that Halloween is the time where the veil between the living and dead is thinnest. While I don’t run my life by following superstitions and paranormal activity, IContinue reading “October 31, 2018: Between the Worlds”

October 30, 2018: New Reads and Special Shows

Now that I began a new book, I’m searching online for a book community in the area. It’s surprising how there’s not that many groups here in Hunterdon County! I discovered one group that I may express interest in. I began the story ‘After thr Quake’ by Haruki Murakami. It’s a short story compilation, theContinue reading “October 30, 2018: New Reads and Special Shows”

October 26, 2018: Trick-or-Treating

Halloween is just around the corner! As I mentioned before, I enjoy decorating and getting in costume for gatherings. It’s also exciting to see young children go around in their costumes. The only discouraging thing to watch is the act of Trick-or-Treating disappearing. Less and less families come by year after year. It’s truly aContinue reading “October 26, 2018: Trick-or-Treating”

October 24, 2018: Book Progress and Pumpkins

I’m halfway done with ‘Daughters of the Lake’. The historical accounts of past generations is woven so well into the modern perspective of the story. I appreciate a good ghost story. I brought in my second pumpkin for work this morning. The first pumpkin didn’t hold up very well. It was carved, and it beganContinue reading “October 24, 2018: Book Progress and Pumpkins”

October 23, 2018: Halloween Decorating

Halloween decorating is one of my favorite parts of Halloween. When I was little, I would help my mom pin up all the Halloween signs around the house. I maintained the decorating fever during my college years, putting up ‘webs’ and pictures in my dorm room. I kept these signs up long after Halloween wasContinue reading “October 23, 2018: Halloween Decorating”

October 18, 2018: Great Pumpkin

I watched ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’. It was exciting to catch the show after a busy day at work. I enjoy Halloween so much! This year it falls on the middle of the week, but there’s still a chance to wear a costume the weekend before the special holiday. I still have myContinue reading “October 18, 2018: Great Pumpkin”

October 17, 2018: Shifting to Autumn

When Autumn truly arrives, it’s memorable. It reminds you of this change the second you walk outside, and the wind cuts through the fabric of your clothes. You remember the change every evening, when the sun slips into the horizon a couple minutes earlier. It brings out special celebrations; people dressing up for Halloween, familiesContinue reading “October 17, 2018: Shifting to Autumn”

October 16, 2018: Snoopy in the Halloween Spirit

I enjoy taking photos of my Itty Bitty Peanuts collection. They hold a special place in my heart. Ever since I was a little girl I enjoyed everything about Peanuts. I owned many books on the series, and watched every show about the Peanuts characters whenever they came on television. When Hallmark came out withContinue reading “October 16, 2018: Snoopy in the Halloween Spirit”

October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead

Today I relaxed and worked on my classroom pumpkin. At work we were each given a pumpkin to decorate by the end of the week, so since I’m always busy doing a million things at work, I took care of it here at home. I chose a sinple outline: a cat gazing up at aContinue reading “October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead”
