Alone On A Broom

The sky surrounds me

Jupiter crowns me

The moon rides on my back

The wind sings to me,

The night rings through me

As I fly down the track

The trees zip past me

The stars all cast me

In silver shadows and light

I'll never do better,

Whatever the weather,

Than riding on Halloween night.

These days Halloween-Samhain makes me melancholy. I miss old friends that I have been unable to connect with. I miss the wild times of Halloween's past. I miss conversing and partying with like-minded people. I have not been able to make that connection here in Spokane. There have been some missed opportunities and I have only myself to kick for missing them. I don't know if it was from shyness or feeling intimidate by people with more advanced teachings. Plus I am not much of a "goer". I'm pretty much a homebody.

Tonight is Mexican steak night at the house. We have a Tommy Lee Jones movie to watch and plenty of books to read. My boss just lent me the Dean Koontz Frankenstein series. Which seems perfect for this time a year.

Saturday October 17

It was a great week. We were super busy at work all week. Friday was best. For bosses day I brought flowers to my 2 lady bosses and talking cards for the all.

Today we have lots of projects planned. Going to get rid of all the empty boxes from the garage, clean the hall closet and just straighten the house. I need to start decorating for Halloween/Samhain. It will be here before we know it.

We have movies to watch and I am making potato leek soup for dinner.

Hope you all have a nice weekend.

Tuesday October 13

I'm sorry I have not written here much. It seems the days just go by so fast. I have so many projects on my list, but, not enough time to get them all done.

And now that we added Netflix, I want to watch the shows they send us. We have been watching the first season of Dexter. I'm definitely hooked. They shipped the classic movie Arsenic and Old Lace. One of my favorites for this time of year.

The weather has been bitterly cold. But it has been lovely seeing the trees turn to their magnificient fall colors. Houses are starting to put up their Halloween displays. I really love this time of year.

Went to Bead Frenzy last weekend. Michael went with me for the first time. It was alot of fun. This coming weekend is the annual Quilt Festival and Bead Stampede. I'm going to try and sneak over there and see what I can find that looks interesting.

Have a great week and I will try and get back here more often.

Happy Blogoversary Steve. And many more.

It was a busy day at work, so time went by really fast. Cold morning with a mild and sunny afternoon. Fall is wonderful.

I've been spending alot of time playing around on Facebook. Lots of fun. Come and visit.

Hot meatloaf sandwiches for dinner while watching episode 2 on Season One of Dexter.

Have a fun Tuesday.

Sunday October 4

The weekend is over. It has been cold and windy all weekend. I only left the house once this whole weekend. That was to go to the store and the library.

Our first 3 Netflix movies came on Friday. We watched In the Electric Mist with Tommy Lee Jones. It was from a James Lee Burke book. I loved it. We watched one episode on disc 1 of Dexter.

We watched alot of tv. That is about all. I had so much I wanted to accomplish, but, didn't. Maybe I needed a non-activity weekend.

Back to work tomorrow. 50's all week so I will need to pull out some warmer clothes.

Have a great week.

Thursday Oct 1

I had a really nice birthday, even if I did have to work all day. Joyce brought in cupcakes to start the day off. For lunch we all went to King Yen. Their food is so good. They gave me all the leftovers and Michael had that for dinner. Lots of cards and nice birthday wishes and a check from the company.

I am glad today is Friday. One more day before the weekend. Hopefully we can get out and do some of the garage while the weather is nice and cool, before the rain comes.

I joined Netflix again. They have shipped our first 3 dvd's. In the Electric Mist with Tommy Lee Jones. This movie is adapted from one of my favorite author, James Lee Burke's books. And the first 2 dvds of the first season of Dexter.

Didn't win on Lotto Wednesday night. Tomorrow night it would be nice to win the $105 million.

Happy Friday to everybody.
