Hallowe'en!

Our Hallowe'en day was a beuty 17C and sunny and the evening was perfect for all the little kiddies going trick-or-treating.


I don't have a clue how to take pictures at night but here they are! Since when did people get into carving multiple pumpkins? My dad only ever carved one simple grinning face....and it was the best. But now people really get into it and decorate like crazy. They even have orange and purple outdoor lights.






















Love how my camera caught the ghost flying by!!
This is such a cool effect that happened unexpectedly when I selected the night time button in hopes of getting a clearer picture! HA!

Yesterday, I dressed up as a Russian style witch and read, "Bony Legs to the Gr. 3's at my school. Then, I sang several songs with my guitar. I so miss that part of teaching!
Hope you all had a fun Hallowe'en!

Last Monday, I stayed in Bed like a Zoombie, just stiring up on the ceiling, unable to anything at all.
