It's fall!!!!!

OK, the calendar says so anyway.

So yeah.  I'm sitting in here like a princess in the air conditioning instead of digging headstones & blowmolds out of the shed & getting them cleaned up & staged for next weekend.
Hmm.  Guess I should have stayed up when I took the dog outside at 7am and did some stuff then!  Maybe tomorrow. 

Anyhooo, what's been going on?  We went to Chicago last weekend for my nephew's wedding & Chuck went along for the ride (of course)!  He mostly hung out in the hotel room, since we all came down with the plague and quite frankly - it was hard enough to get myself moving for family stuff, let alone mess with him.

He rode in style!

Once we left Chicago, we went north thru Wisconsin & thru the U.P. (OMG - it's beautiful up there and will be even more so in a couple weeks when the trees hit their peak color!) and went to 6 real Maple Grove Cemeteries (look for those posts during the Countdown to Halloween next month)
 We also found some kindred spirits in Iron River, MI! 
The hubby stopped & I got out so I could take a closer look.  They're right up my alley! 

Other than that - I'm just sort of in limbo, waiting.  It seems like I should be doing something, especially when I see all these people on FB & the HalloweenForum putting stuff out already and I'm not.   I was told & now I use it as a guideline that I can't put the cemetery up until after Miss Angela's birthday.  Well, her birthday is Thursday, that means Friday is Go day!
I could probably start bringing stuff inside.....
Or maybe I should do some cleaning first!  
 I finally made it into Home Goods yesterday and enjoyed looking at their goodies.  This guy came home with me, since I have a thing for skeleton dolls!



  1. Know exactly what you mean! Was out on the ladder this afternoon putting up some new orange and purple C9 LED lights on our gutters (a prelude to the full blown yard haunt on Halloween) and was soaked in sweat because we reached 89 degrees. Doesn't feel like Halloween season with these temperatures!

    1. It was insane there for a while! It appears to have finally passed, since the kid & I were sitting on the patio (by the light of the garage door) painting headstones & it was actually chilly!

  2. Can't wait for some actual Fall temps here!


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!!
