Halloween Goblin???

Here is my Halloween Goblin. She arrived asleep, but after a while she woke up and we visited a few of our neighbors. Loved the costume her mom got for her!! Her little uncle was too big to dress up this year. He got a costume just in case, but at the last minute, he chose to take toilet paper to the hay ride instead of a costume. They had a list of houses who had said it was ok to roll, and they did it right. They had a blast. He is really growing up, and I don't think I am ready for this. (sigh!) Fall has arrived and I am loving it. The rains have stopped and if the Lord's willing, my son will get his beans cut today and out of the field. Major damage due to the rain, but thankfully he can salvage some. Not very creative these days due to cooking and cleaning. I am restocking my freezer with breads and casseroles. I usually keep these things on hand for us or last minute gifts, but I ran out of everything!! Hubby been home a lot more these last few months and I believe he is the culpret that depleted my freezer "happies".
It's "Time Out Thursday" my friends. This is my day to relax and reflect on things I forgot to appreciate and just to remember to enjoy life. I have turned into a Facebook person. I thought this was a young adult thing, but with much coaxing I am there. I have connected with so many old friends, and my extended family that live off have joined. I get up every morning and check to see if everyone is ok. It is unbelievable the old friends from grammar school, high school and college that I have reconnected with. I don't do much commenting, I mainly lurk, but I do remember birthdays and wish all a great day on their special day. I received this comment back from one an old high school friend yesterday, and it really touched my heart----
"A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one, finds a treasure", and after the quote he gave a sweet thanks for remembering him. See how a gentle act of kindness and rememberance can make someones day. If you have a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or maybe a family member that needs a little extra today do it. I try every day to do something like this for someone. Whether it be a smile, birthday greeting, or a comment. Try it, I bet you like it.

Time to go clean out my closet!! This will probably be quite a challenge. I could get in there and never be found again! Ya'll have a great day. Enjoy every moment. Be healthy, happy, safe. Hug those you love. Smile and laugh!! God bless ya'll!!!
