A favorite

It’s finally October. One of my favorite months of the year, not only because it’s my birth month 🙂 I love the leaves changing color and falling, cooler weather, all the horror movies on tv…it would be better if the movies were actually good but they do throw in a few good movies now and then and of course, the candy is always good, probably too good. It’s worse than Christmas with all the sweets around.

So far this month,I only see two stations with horror movies on – Chiller and AMC. Chiller has a lot of old, black and white movies, like The Alfred Hitchcock Hour and The Blob. On Halloween night they are showing short films sent in by viewers and picking 3 winners-Dare to Direct. It could prove interesting. Last year I remember watching a reality series for the next Elvira. Stupid and a little funny.

What is YOUR favorite Horror Movie?……

Happy 4th!

Sitting here, watching the rain fall…..of course, Nellie is looking out the bedroom window. Her favorite spot. The storm came up so fast, the wind was blowing things all around the yard. I got soaked just walking out on the porch. We got almost 1 1/2″s within 30 minutes!! At least it will cool down and I won’t have to water the garden for a few days.

We were walking through the garden this afternoon and why is it that Nell will NOT walk between the tomato plants?? She comes to a dead stop and then we have to walk around…hmmm. She scared 2 bunnies away this afternoon too. I don’t know what she would do if she ever caught one. That probably wouldn’t be a good thing. I imagine she would play a little ‘rough’. One day while hanging laundry, I heard a noise like something dropping….I didn’t pay too much attention to it. Later on that day, Nellie is jumping around like she does when she sees something outside….there is a box turtle on our porch! Needless to say, there is absolutely no way it could have gotten up 5 steps to get there. She apparently brought it up there to ‘play with’ later. She loves to play with anything that moves. Not such a good thing either.

Anyway……………………………HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!

What do you like the most about Thanksgiving? I think the food of course, and being with family.
