Shaking fingers with Mr. Skelaton! He's not quite sure if the old guy is real or not!
Below: The before as Cap'n Spooky is ready to leave home to go to his school's "Trunk or Treat" Fall Festival. They make Halloween a safe and fun time for the children. Kellan's got his squishy frog all ready.
And, finally, two of my very favorite people...DD, Jessica and my grandson, Kellan, as his school's Halloween Fall Festival draws to an end. His favorite candy was a lollipop which he got all over himself, his tv chair, his daddy, and his mom. All's well that ends well....
My newest reads are: "Vampire Darcy's Desire: A Pride and Prejudice Adaptation," which is so thoroughly entertaining I wish I could send it to all of you! My face is surely glowing with delight, and I know I'm smiling through chapter after chapter as I read. Not so much for the vampirish details, but for how easily each piece fits into the mysteries of Darcy in the original Pride & Prejudice. The author, Regina Jeffers, is a teacher and specialist on Jane Austen, which makes this book heads and shoulders above other adaptations, I think. I'm loving it!!
"The White Garden: A Novel of Virginia Woolf," by Stephanie Barron. We know S. Barron as the author of those Jane Austen mysteries that have been so popular such as; "Jane and the Ghost of Netley." She is also the author of, "Flaw in the Blood." I can't wait to read this new book of Barron's, because she never fails to produce good writing and a wonderful story.
Other exciting bookish news! Anne Rice has a new book coming out this week called "Angels..." not quite sure of the whole title. The reviews say her Lestat readers will be happy to know she's returned more to her old style of writing. I'm sooo happy about that. I'm such a Vampire and Mayfair Witches fan. :F
Also, my other very favorite author, Joyce Carol Oates has a new book out called, "Little Bird of Heaven."
I've downloaded all of the above books to my Kindle, "Stella," and I'm reading like a maniac and blanking out the real world. Afterall, it is Halloween and one can not be expected to act rationally. I've been staying up late reading, getting up early to work on Kellan's quilt and reading, and reading....my eyes are stinging and stinging!
Now I have wild, stringy hair and blood shot eyes! Are you starting to get the picture here???
Please leave any comments you may to bring me back to reality! With hugs from beyond, Deb
