Pumpkin fun- socks and- civic duty

these are our creations this year, we didn't carve last year. I finnally convinced S to " do " halloween again-- a couple of years ago we had two 4 foot tall black lights and an awesome display and some kids from the neighboorhood - stole our lights and smashed up some of the cool stuff we had - a day after Halloween.
So we bought two new black lights and some cool florecent stuff ( lights up) - and I will take some pictures of it tonight or tomorrow. S mounted the lights under the eave on the house and now they will be safe from vandals this year.
I want some one to knit me a pair of these- look at what Rebecca Sower got a picture on her blog
I voted ! one of the largest ballots the State of Colorado has had since 1902, it was difficult and time consuming, But I feel good knowing that my Freedom has been protected and exercised.

This is actually 889:) - posts that is- wow this is quite a feat, almost 4 years of blogging it is hard to believe I have been so prolific! There have been lots of projects, updates, stories and tons of pictures.

I am proud that I still get quite a few hits on the Colorology- misspelling, and the Colorstrology links to the pantone web site! It is fun to see what the search engine brings me, I still come up pretty high on the misspelling and it always makes me smile. Color is an interesting concept for me, and the thought of coloring one's " special days" with interesting color is a happy thought. The search for things with meaning in our lives...special to us, we connect with others and the universe in a small world kind of way.... this is how the subject connects me to the web and the world. So go a seek color, I have a few links here and you can explore many more.

lately the thanksgiving turkey I linked to a couple of years ago is bringing in searchers - fun for kids to color. See color in our lives?

My secret Santa ( neighbor) - is an interesting search too, people are looking for those special holiday things already. This economic crisis may be stimulating my blog searches for things we can do for others that don't cost too much! Love your Neighbors and pass on good tidings and cheer.

The little( mini) mail boxes I created this year at Valentines day bring lots of good search traffic too. they were in the dollar bins at target, I keep on the look-out for those deals when ever we visit my favorite big box retailer. I always find what I am shopping for at target.

one other item of interest is the " trailer trash" invitation my Friend Kate made and I posted to the web. This image gets associated with - redneck woman because I included the lyrics of that song with the graphics of the postcard! - oh boy you just never can tell what people are searching for. I am glad some of my fun scrapping items do get googled and I get visits from all over the globe for my top items of interest. -

So if you have read this far, thanks for stopping in and taking a look at my Creative Life, leave a comment if you want to, and really thanks for taking a little time to stop and search for the things I write about! :)

I count your friendship one of the chiefest pleasures of my life, a comfort in time of doubt and trouble, a joy in time of prosperity and success, and an inspiration at all times.

We love Valentine's at my house, almost as much as ground hog's day! Well my friend K8 sent us a postcard from Valentine, NE They passed through there on the way to the Blackhills and mount rushmore. Very cute, it even had a ground hog on the front of it.

K8's mom also posted up a bit about their trip at her blog. I have not ever visited at mount rushmore, When I was married to EX-J we went on a road trip to N.D. and passed through the black hills but didn't stop. This is on my list of places to visit so maybe one day we will be able to make that trip. They went to Crazy horse too, but were fogged out. We had a couple of days of dreary rainny weather here too, I was sorry to hear that their trip was also subject to that weather. the NPS runs the park - it looks like a cool place to go for a visit.

It's feeling like fall around here

This picture was taken by me a long time ago, but it is a great visual of what time of year it is around these parts. on my way home from the office on Tuesday night I went by the " patch" Where one might pick your own lovely orange orb. I may drag S and Hh and SSD2 to a little excusion on Saturday afternoon, I have a hankeren for one of my own. And as always more pictures of these fine Symbols of the season.

I have started drinking more Tea as well, another one of the things I do at this time of the year, This is my Favorite time of the year. Time for a fall outing to Celestial seasonings maybe on the agenda too, hmmn might have to make this a big round with both activities this weekend..... we will see.....
