Happy Samhain 2015
« on: October 31, 2015, 02:58:29 pm »


Dear Deryni Fans, here is the link for the project that ate my October. 
/>Please enjoy the ghostly, but not gory Halloween Ball at the Chateau de Papier! And please keep your beloved cats indoors tonight, watch out for traffic when crossing the streets with kids, and have a fun, spooky and safe Samhain.

Lovely, thank you for sharing.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

That's excellent, Shiral.  :D

I am baking apple bread (mmm, my apartment smells yummy!) for the potluck I'm planning to attend this evening.

Happy Halloween/Blessed Samhain, everyone!  :)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Nicely done, Shiral!

No Halloween party to go to tonight, but we dressed up for the holiday at work yesterday.  My co-workers decided to dress like the characters of the movie "Inside Out," and talked me into dressing up as Bing Bong the Imaginary Friend with only two weeks' notice to get the costume together, so fortunately I was able to recycle last year's flamingo costume for it by just switching out a few accessories.

LOL. That is almost scary, Evie!  love it.
Our evening was a lot of fun.   It took 3 of us girls all day to dress up the house. We had a grave yard, a pumpkin patch with singing pumpkins, a ghost tea party on the side porch, a seance in the parlor that went awry(glowing crystal ball, floating books, candlestick and an axe) and a forlorn ghost bride in the upper window. We handed out 30lbs of candy And I would say we had about 200 kids and adults step through our front door. The old lady who told people to get off her porch was perfect. I loved her. (she came from Home Depot and was a wonderful addition). If I get my camera back today, I will try to upload some pictures.

Shiral,  your Samhain story is wonderful!  Great artistry! I will share that with my friends, who love to go to balls and dance until the sun comes up.
Thank you.

That was wonderful, Shiral!  And I honestly did not see that ending coming.   :)
