wake-me-up-in-october

hey sleepy heads!

rise and shine! no excuses about losing a silly ol’ hour of sleep!

okay, honestly. i’m not a “rise and shiner”. ask my hubby. it takes 2 cups of caffeine and about as many hours before i can even begin to function in the mornings. so you can pretty much imagine how i feel about “springing forward”.

UGH.

very damn confusing this morning too. usually my cell phone changes time automatically. it didn’t. someone (the clock fairy?!) changed a couple of the clocks in the house, but not all of them. so with my usual foggy-headedness in the mornings, i was completely clueless about what time it was when i woke up.

my computer clock said something different than the wall clock above it. arghh. what to do? check the internet of course! tap, tap, tap. a few keystrokes and i’m on the “us official time clock” website. what the hell? it gave me the message, “site too busy”. ha! good to know i’m not the only one …

even with losing an hour this weekend, i found the time to hit a few yard/garage/estate sales. went to two on friday with my son and several with the FAGs on saturday. i brought home quality over quantity … and didn’t $pend very much! always a good thing!

enjoy the pics. and i don’t know about y’all, but i’m taking a nap this afternoon.

love and hugs,
terrylee

also got this box of whatchacallits at the estate sale. see that pink ribbon? i was eyeing that and she said she'd sell me the whole box for $1.00. okaaaaaay. but i'm not really into fall/halloween-type deco. still, the box itself is wonderful and beautiful.

hey guys!

by now all the little ghosts and goblins, witches and warlocks, power rangers and princesses have made their way back home after haunting the streets for treats.

i thought when my youngest turned 12 or 13, he’d lose interest in halloween. not. he’s 15 and still likes to dress up, even if he’s just handing out candy to the little guys.

so be it. life’s too short not to be happy … whether it’s dressing up for halloween, reading in bed with your husband or junking with your best friends.

below are pics of some “treats” for y’all … yummy treasures i wanted to share. lots from sue, some from other junking haunts.

love, hugs and HAPPINESS to all,
terry lee
