Yes, bees sleep.

And today I am thankful for sweet, soft hours of sleep – and for homecomings, a chill in the air, and soup on the stove.

For what are you thankful?

October 17 The Ghouls

with one comment

This year our Halloween haunt theme is “Ringling Bones”. We “friend-sourced” the build this year and I’m not sure why we waited so long to come up with that idea – it was genius!

Our friends brought it *big* to the big top and we had a great time figuring out how to secure the acrobats (our poor trees) and whether or not the ghost lion cage should have hay. This is serious stuff.  Thankfully, we had a packed cooler, a grill and lots of 28 gauge wire.

So today I am thankful for my ghoulish friends; thankful for a weekend packed with fun, frivolity and free-ish beer, and thankful for the October sun, be it ever so hot yet shining brightly on our parade.
For what are you thankful?

After a forever that blurred into an instant, an old friend has returned.

For that I am thankful,

and for shared histories that bring a giggle,

and for a mind at ease, freed from the concerns about the worst.

 

For what are you thankful?
