136 days!

And yet again - still nothing done by way of fence building. Now that I have a general idea of where I'm going to place the fence, I can figure out footage.  But not right now, with some nasty, quick storms rolling this way!

I've had a few successful shopping trips recently. 

I've named this fiber-optic witch, Lois, after our neighbor.  My daughter swears that woman is a witch and has her husband in a freezer in the basement.  I think she's rather nice, she usually comes over when I'm setting up the cemetery to visit for a minute & look at the display.  And her house has no basement! 
But the resemblance is rather uncanny. 

The urn is intriguing, since the lid is glued on, but there is something 
rattling around inside it!  
And the blue bottle will be for "Moon Dust" or something. 
My iPhone is for size reference. 

This snack dish is really cute.  Each of the legs is a different character. 

 I believe this was a perfume bottle at some time.  
But I love the gems & shape and everything.  
It was something that made me gasp & grab it when I saw it. 

Ugh, this is why I don't do selfies. 
I actually went to the mall this weekend - the place I hate most in the world.  
But Spencer's had this awesome skeleton cameo necklace for $15. 

So that's all the Halloween goodness going on around here.  I've had my niece's high school graduation to go to recently,  helped my mom clean up her yard & plant flowers for said niece's grad party.  My girl is getting ready for her dance recital this Friday.  Next week she gets to start summer school (apparently she doesn't like summer vacation much, since it's her 3rd summer in a row having to make up classes!)
Other than that, usual life stuff. 

Here is my goofy Beagle at the local nature trail.  
He waded in this far and stood there, just looking out over the surface of the water.
