This was my first time in ages in giving out candies to all the little ghosts and goblins knocking on my door. I just loved giving out all the candies to the trick and treaters who came to my door and I loved seeing all their costumes. I waited until after Halloween in case I had some cute photos to share and I do. First of all my Solara dressed up as an elephant thanks to her auntie Janice. She didn't mind when I tried her hat on her on Wednesday.
BUT when Halloween rolled around and she actually had to wear her elephant hat costume this is the result.
I did manage to take a couple of photos. This first photo is my neighbor's daughter and granddaughter. She is four months and was a pumpkin.
I don't know who this is but it is original.
I even decorated my window. I hope to have more decorations next year. I wasn't even sure I was going to get lights since they were on sale but when I went to Canadian Tire they NOT only were on sale BUT on clearance. Each box of 10 pumpkin lights cost only $2.43. I purchased three boxes. I would like to get the pumpkin lights you can stake into the ground next year. I found the blue mat at Dollarama and even though it was only a dollar I didn't want to walk on it so I put it in the window. Solara even checked out the boxes the lights came in and she seemed to think it was a good fit for her as she was in there most of Thursday evening the night before Halloween.
I haven't done a lot of knitting b/c I haven't been feeling that great. In addition to the cold I have had all week which I think is slowly going away my left eye is now all red. I don't think it is from coughing as the coughing I have been doing is NOT that hard so I think it could be from blowing my nose or rubbing my dripping eye. My vision is just fine. No I haven't been to the doctor. This happened another time and it was the same eye. The end result was over a period of time the blood was reabsorbed and my eye went back to normal with no lingering problems. I am sure it is the same as the last time.
BUT I did finish the one leg of TLL Socktoberfest Mystery Sock KAL which can be found in ravelry groups. Thus, I am half finished with clue #2. I have also restarted my project for my Ravelry Starbucks Swap. I am also back working on my Cavendish Serape Shawl. Solara really enjoys resting on it.
Now I know people are always asking for me to show a photo of myself. AND I agree it is nice to know what someone looks like you correspond with or whose blog you read. I know I have a sparkly personality and here is a photo I took of myself to prove it.
Or did I break the camera? Even if I didn't break the camera taking my photo you wouldn't get to see my PINK hair as there is very little left and since I totally decolored my hair prior to putting the PINK in it, there isn't even any brown or black except for the roots. It is some disgusting yellowy blond color with smidgens of pink in the front that haven't faded yet. So you will just have to use your imagination and the photo above. HEE HEE
