Halloween Week & Saturday Suggestions Part 5

I am so excited that Halloween is less than a week away! Yahoo!!!! I think I am just as excited, if not more so, than my boys. I just love everything about it. I love dressing up, getting spooked, eating CANDY! I love it! Add to that the fact that my very best friend and her family will be in town and will not only bring her adorable kiddos out trick or treating with us but then afterwards we are going out for a night on the town! Sans kids! Woohoo!

So, in honor of this wonderful festive time of year every post next week will be Halloween themed. I have mentioned a number of times how I have had some very freaky ghostly experiences and I will finally be sharing them with you. One ghost story on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Yes, there are three ghost stories total. I may even add some scary music! OOooooooo. Then maybe some fun jack-o-lantern pics on Wednesday, and a photo montage of all my past Halloween costumes throughout the years for Photo Story Friday. I know how y'all like to laugh at me.

So that is the plan. We'll see how it all turns out. Woohoo! Halloween!


And without further ado:

Since I usually don't post on weekends I thought I would give you all some great reads written by other bloggers. Every Saturday I will pick three posts that stand out in my mind that I have read in the past week. They can be posts that make me laugh, cry, or just strike a chord with me. Please feel free to visit the links and leave comments.

Catwoman at Canadian Thoughts In Texas with Complete Love

-This is the very first post Catwoman wrote after delivering her second son, and I think it is one of the sweetest things I've ever read. Love just oozes from the screen.

The Griper with Obama and Bill Ayers

-I have vowed not to write any political posts on this blog, and I still won't. But this man did and it covers one of my biggest concerns.

Siobhan at A Brit Different with A Tribute To The Greatest Generation And An Amazing Man

-Quite possibly the best tribute post I've ever read. I know it is so difficult to write about someone you admire and love so much. It seems impossible to condense to writing. But Siobhan executed it flawlessly. I can feel every emotion. Just brilliant and touching.

I'm looking forward to seeing those pics, you always have great ones. A tradition in Scotland is to tell ghost stories, so I am looking forward to those too, especially TRUE stories. Eeee!

Kat, thank you for that beautiful blurb you wrote introducing my post to your readers. I am very touched. I definitely need to go read Catwoman. She is amazing, I can't believe she posted already! What a trooper.

Can't wait to read! I love this time of year too! Hey, I finally got a post up and tagged you! Check it out. Thanks for all of your great wisdom - I really loved your posts about running - I decided a few weeks ago that I was going to train for a 10K, so I loved your suggestions.

I don't see how they can get MORE scary than Monday's scary story....but I will keep reading. I hold you soley responsible for any nightmares that may incur!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
