Halloween Feet

Image
So here are some Halloween Feet from The Witch's Ball. As my daughter Kelsey likes to point out....I got this idea from her...taking pictures of feet...I mean. These are some witches that attended the ball....and we stopped casting spells long enough to get this picture taken!

Double Double, Toil and Trouble
Which witch has the cutest feet
Tell me and I'll spare your fate!
Deny me and you'll learn too late!

Just Happy to Be Me!

Just a quick hello...Ginger's Journey readers....once I have pics...I'll be back to blog about the Witch's Ball. Posts are sooo much more fun with some pictures. In the meantime....just happy to be me...Headed to Kimmswick tomorrow to look through the shops at crafts and some antiques! A nice little lunch and then more shopping before heading home so Katie can take Evan to trick or treating!!

Skulls Anyone?

Here's a little skull display I put together in the kitchen for Halloween and our party....The Witch's Ball....kinda spooky yet fun! I like the way the two skulls look under the glass domed cheese tray. I liked it even better to see the shocked expression on the poor old lady's face at the resale shop when she said this will work great for cheese and I said I really want it for bones...LOL 

The Door That Opened

It's been awhile since I wrote about the Haunted Farm and growing up among some things that are not easily explained. I've often wondered if the events that transpired there on that random piece of land have any meaning? Would they have happened regardless of who lived there or were they somehow linked to my family?  There's really no way to piece together the incidents and make a rational "whole". As I have proposed in the past, they seemed "other worldly" but if you indeed can come up with another theory, I'll certainly consider it. Someone once proposed that they were not "hauntings" but rather an alternate time period or universe colliding with our own. Events happening in other dimensions but bleeding over into this one. That sounds just as "crazy" as what I propose but I can't rule it out...so it sits there as another explanation.

Even now in the dead of the night, when the lights are out and the room is coated in blac…

Kissing the 50

Kelsey loved Mizzou Homecoming!! What a great game as the Tigers defeated long time rival Oklahoma! Rushing the field, kissing the 50, and carrying the goal post downtown....she thought it was AMAZING!!  So good to make great memories and enjoy life....

Thinking about a Little of Nothing Much

I'm just thinking about a little of nothing much. Haven't been writing much lately and not sure why. Doing other projects and watching TV now that some of my fave shows are started their new seasons. Nothing wrong with that,,,,the ebb and flow of life.

I've been feeling out of sync with life in general. Unfocused and lost. Nothing major wrong just a vague feeling of wandering along with out a sense of purpose. Quite awhile back I wrote about sensing something...like something rushing at me through the darkness and I purposed that it was another me in an alternate universe, just on the fringe of consciousness. This FEELS different, like s sailboat adrift at sea....gently thrown off course by the lapping waves and the bright sunshine casting a glare on the horizon. No real hurry to right the course but a timid nagging that something is amiss.

Many things have been making me smile....the work I am doing on my bedroom is coming together and the lovely clean organized simple se…

Schenck Girls-Autumn Adventure

Image
We started a new tradition this year....2010....We  (my daughters, me, and a couple cousins) traveled to the Lake in the spring for shopping and a little weekend get away. We had so much fun we decided to repeat it in the autumn. So this weekend we head back to the Lake for shopping, laughing, and eating out!!

We are already excited about our spring adventure....we will go to the Isle of Capri....casino....for some fun in the spring....Kelsey will be 21 by then so all of us can have a little (darn little in way of $) with the slot machines, eat in there and stay at the lovely hotel!

Such simple fun....split the cost of a room, swim in the indoor pool, and do a wee bit of shopping and exploring!! Looking forward to it!
