Halloween in the 'hood

Brrr, it's chilly today! I'm wrapped in a flannel blanket on the couch, waiting for the rain to start. It's going to be a wet and cozy weekend (my favorite kind). I have some shopping to do, but I'm starting to wonder if I really even want to leave my home today.

I've been trying to walk every evening and wanted to show you some of the cool Halloween decorations I've encountered around the neighborhood.

Love those tiny pumpkins.

Big spiders are all the rage this year. Do you have them in your neighborhood, too? (I've been seeing smaller, even scarier ones in my apartment. Shudder.)

Good old-fashioned punkin' head.

Pretty clever with the heart.

This one is dedicated to Disney-lovers Kim and Hil.

Well, I'm off to the kitchen to make a bagel and coffee. I have Mad Men episodes to watch on DVD, a half-finished collage to work on, and want to find a juicy new knitting project to sink my teeth in to. What are your plans for the weekend?

I'm going to sit on my butt and watch TV all weekend! But I'm ready to go for a walk again when you are. Go Mickey!!!

Not too many decorations around here yet but you have a lot of great ones in your neighborhood!

I am enjoying some time around the house, cleaning and not getting out of the house! Watcing football and baseball tonight:)

Have a great weekend! HUGS!

It looks like you are in a creative neighborhood! We have some decorations. People really favor the blow-up displays. The only problem with those is that when they aren't blown up, they are in a big "puddle" in their yards!

I love the first picture! And of course I love Mickey! I've been trying to walk more too. I can even run (slowly) with the dog for a couple minutes (wow, not much but it's something!). Hope you're staying cozy and warm!

How fun -- it looks like you've moved to a wonderful 'hood! And hopefully, after the 31st, your spiders will disappear!
