Good Morning!

Good morning Haunters. I hope everyone is having an enjoyable Saturday afternoon. Tonight I am making Andy's 10 hour pulled pork. If you haven't tried it, check out the recipe. I'll link it in the comments! This stuff has become a real regular at our dinner table!

I'm really looking forward to seeing NotLD on the big screen tonight. This is my favorite movie beyond all movies! I think it's absolutely brilliant. I was a fan of most of Romero's work, even Season of the Witch, which I've heard even Romero himself admitted was a flop. Last spring I got to visit the Evans City Cemetery in Pennsylvania where the opening scene of NotLD was filmed. Such a fun trip!

What are you all up to this weekend?

Friday Trivia!

Alfred Hitchcock was a famous British American film maker known for classics such as The Birds and Psycho. He was missing a certain body part. What was it?

Good Morning!

Good morning Haunters. I hope everyone is having a lovely morning. I'm just sitting here enjoying a nice cup of coffee and slice of banana bead. I have to go to the dentist for a teeth cleaning in an hour. Then it's off to the grocery store. Tonight The hubbie and I are taking dinner over to my BFF's house and we are all swimming in his pool, after we're done swimming, we'll probably have a glass of wine or two around the fire when it gets dark should it cool down enough for that sort of thing. I'm going to grab some chicken from the deli and make a few salads and a cherry pie for dessert. He's a widow, and doesn't cook. I take him dinner a couple days a week. We had planned to go to a haunted garage sale out in Waterford on Saturday morning, but we looked over their stuff on facebook. They want new prices for their used stuff, so we decided to skip it. That evening, I have the tribute showing of George Romeros's Night of the Living Dead at the Redford Theater in Detroit. It's a wonderful place. They show all classic movies all the time and have live organ music at the opening and during intermission! We sit in the balcony and eat pop corn with real butter! If you're ever visiting the Motor City, it's definitely a little gem to check out! What are your plans for the weekend? Hope it's something good!

Sneak Peak at Target's Halloween Stuff for 2017!

Here's a link to The Spooky Vegan's Sneak peak of Halloween. I always love to look, but before buying anything I always think to myself... Can we built it cheaper and better? The answer is usually yes. I'm really digging that Skeleton fortune teller!

Good Morning!

Good morning Haunters! What are you all up to today? Staying cool I hope! I have an appointment with the neurologist at 10:30 this morning. I'm doing really well since the stroke, except I still get light headed quite frequently. At least it's not constant anymore, but I do have a constant feeling of static electricity in my arms and legs since the stroke. I hope she can sort it out and it's nothing to be too concerned about. Later, I'm going to the doctor's with my BFF. He's a big baby and can't stand to go by himself, so I always go with him. I swear every year I spend more and more time at the doctor's office! Have a terrific Thursday everyone!

Good Morning!

Good morning Haunters! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday so far. I'm just about to head outside for my morning walk. Always got to stay on top of that exercise routine! What are you all up to today? Thought I'd share this one. These little guys look so cool and so easy to make!

RIP Romero

If you haven't heard, George A. Romero passed away earlier this week on Sunday. He was my favorite and Night of the Living Dead is my favorite movie of all time! We even named one of our props after him, a mummy with a skull face. We will be attending a tribute showing of NotLD at the Redford Theater in Detroit this weekend. RIP Mr. Romero, you were a true artist!

Good Morning!

Good morning haunters! What is everyone up to today? I just had breakfast (a banana and a cup of coffee) Getting ready to start my morning yoga routine. Then I think I'll go to the thrift store today. I got a half off coupon in the mail and can't resist! You never know what you'll find that you can build a great Halloween prop out of! This afternoon I have my stroke survivor support group. That helps me to meet and talk with other's who are suffering the same things I have and I think it helps them to see how far/how well a recovery can go. Here's a great idea if you have a bunch of those hollow pumpkn buckets leftover from kids trick or treating years! I might just have to make one of these. How cute! Have a beautiful day and Happy Haunting!
