Halloween is Coming…

Hello! Lookie here, it’s a surprise flower!

That’s almost as surprising as finally using the potato topping I bought more than two years ago. It’s all dried, so it never goes bad. I’ve been meaning to try it all this time, but I forgot about it, and when I remembered it, it was too big a hassle to do a baked potato…but anyway, we did it and it was delicious. Now I want more, ha ha!

I added the green onions, obviously

Finally got started on Halloween decorating. About time, I know. First, we got the spiders going, though they need more web. And I need to finish the sign.

We also got most of the haunted forest done. It needs the vines still, and the sign, and the ghost, and a few more tombstones but the basics are there.

And last but not least, we got the tarp staked down. It’s smaller than we thought so we’ll have to pick up more Saturday.

Finished the day off with chicken pot pie and Garfields Halloween Special and Garfield in the Rough. Hadn’t seen that one in years. I remember the panther bit being a loooot longer, but oh well, lol! Also, the rabbit being voiced by Bilbo Baggins threw us off.

And that’s all I’ve got.

Have a surprise flower kinda day!

Godzilla is Not the King

Not a lot yesterday to really speak of. I mentioned a couple days ago that we needed to redo the contact paper in the crafty room because the other stuff was pretty but junk. Well, we finally did it and it looks pretty nice. Even better, it’s not see through.

I did get some cookies made. Oatmeal raisin. We fell off the year of cookies thing the last month or so, and I’m trying to get back on it because it’s fun. And tasty.  Anyway, the recipe called for soaking the raisins in hot water for ten minutes and they’re right, it does make them plumper, I think. If you’re interested, the recipe came from They came out pretty good, though I got three pan loads instead of the two it says.

We also finally played Funko Godzilla. First off, the mini figures are amazing. Second, there is a bit of a learning curve and, wow, did it seem intimidating at first. But, after a round, we had it figured out and it was fun. I won, btw, mostly because I figured it out first. Go Megalon, King of the Monsters!

And that’s all I’ve got, so off I go to try to work.

Have a king of the Monsters kinda day!
