Halloween Wrap Up. The Fun. The Pageantry.
In latest news...Curtis has fallen deeply in love with Brandy the dog who lives behind us. Brad refers to her as "Bridget" so that's what I call her now as well. She's a puppy but much, much bigger than Curtis. There's a nature preserve between our houses so she has to travel through brush and God knows what else to get in our yard. But she does. Daily. She steals his bones and toys. Then I realized that he's purposely bringing stuff out there and LEAVING it I think..to entice her! They sometimes meet in our sideyard and I can tell it's her because of his bark and subsequent heart wrenching cry. This pic below is of him after she left. He'll stare out the window for an hour looking for her. It's so cute but it makes me a bit sad for him. Why? Because the other day she came over, but was more interested in old banana peels and some other stuff (all things which will degrade naturally, food and plant items.) near our firepit than seeing Curtis. He seemed despondent.
Watching. Waiting. 'Is she coming out anytime soon?"
Finally..scored this for a STEAL at a vintage shop with my best friend last week! I'm not sure what I'll make with this frame, but it is GORGEOUS and smells weird! Ideas to take the vintage "scent" out of vintage items? It's all wood and looks amazing but smells...less than stellar.
I'm off to bed. It's getting dark early now..6:30PM! This means that next week when daylight savings ends, it will be dark at...wait for it...5-5:30PM. Good God! I guess I'll get my stack of winter books ready, a bottle of brandy (gotcha!) and a lot of "telenovelas" (nod to Zoila on Flipping Out!)
