Hurricane, Adorable creature, Spooooky..Halloween..and much much more..

Well hello darlings..sorry it has been so long since I last spoke to you..wont you sit and have a cup of coffee...or pumpkin spice tea.. (reminds me of fall, which I love sooooo very much..found this pic. on google)

OK, so I want to hear all about what you have been doing while I was gone..did you have parties, did you make new beautiful art?? or did you relax and enjoy some cake or tea?? well let me tell you about what I have been up to for the last 2 weeks...It has been crazy over here..We are recovering from hurricane Gustav which roared through us and tore up the baton rouge area..brought down many trees, tore off alot of roofs, and just caused ALOT of trouble out here..Ill show you some pictures of the TALL lanky pine tree that came tumbling down on our roof..
ohhhh..yeah, you see how close it is to my car right??well can you see how close from this angle??? well we were VERY VERY lucky that it landed on our garage instead our actual house, but thank God we have that brick column, it held up the tree, and prevented it from crushing both cars under the garage..but one really good thing that came from this (actually two really good things)...(this is Gabby, which is Noels sister..and that is Gustav on top of her head..) AAANNNDDD...this is Ike..my darling..(dont worry, Im not gonna keep him locked up forever..hes learning how to jump right now, so in a couple of weeks, Im going to set this little man free)
But is was the strangest thing..one of them was in a puddle of water, under my car..and my neighbor heard something squeaking so she ran over and looked under my car, and saw a little squirrel..drenched, cold, and scared...he looked into her eyes for a few mins, and then ran up her arm and she ran to our door and gave him to us...(that was Gustav)..now the story of Ike..my brother was in the back yard looking at the tree that fell..(he is 6'4'') a very tall guy..and he was a baby squirrel running towards him, so he bent down and put out hes hand..after about 3 mins..the squirrel did the same thing..he just ran up my brothers arm and unto his shoulder..so he gave Ike to me..and now Im taking care of the little darling, until hes completely ready to go into the wild...hes finally getting enough confidence to explore and run up things, and yesterday he started jumping..which is a wonderful sign..so that is the story of the wonderful little gifts that we received from such a horrible storm..:)
Ohh..let me tell you about my art day...sooo..last Saturday (while our electricity was still out, yeah..it was out for a week) we went to the LSU museum of art, and I found some awesome paintings..let me show you a few (I caught a few of this lovely paintings, before the security guard started yelling at me..haha)..this was my favorite piece..
Dont you just love them??? ohh the last on, with the clock ::right above:: is actually a 3d art, but I couldn't capture that with my camera..but I fell in love with all of those beautiful pieces of art..
Speaking of things that I love love love...Im sooo obnoxiously excited that fall is right around the corner..the crisp breeze, the changing colored leaves, the warm clothes, the pumpkin pies..apple pies..ohh and one of the most fantastic holidays ever..HALLOWEEN!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAY!!! don't you absolutly love fall?? or are you more of a spring type, or maybe summer??? Im a fall, and winter person, myself...;p but one thing I fell head over heels with was...the fall issue of CountryHome magazine..it had Martha Stewart halloween decorations..it was sooo beautiful, and spooookkkyyyy...

ohhh doesn't this put you in the halloween mood??? I want to watch scary movies now..hhmm...I found this great website that has all kind of scary movies to watch on halloween..check it out...I have to watch a movie (I've never seen, or even heard of before now) its called "Suspiria"..have you seen it, is it worth watching?? do you want to know something soo funny?? I love love love watching scary movies, but I hate that I get soo scared afterwards..you see, I have a WILD imagination..I swear that I seen someone in the hall, or I heard something from the closet..ect..you know what I mean?? WILD..haha but some of my all time favorite classic Halloween movies are...

The Adams Family..

The Nightmare Before Christmas..

Hocus Pocus..(I love this movie)

And of course..Beetlejuice...

Soo..which brings me to my question..what are your favorite movies for Halloween?? I would love to hear..I plan on celebrating Halloween 2 weeks before, with all kind of good Halloween movies..so I need some great movies..do you like the gorey movies, maybe the cartoon Halloween movies?? which ever ones, I would love to hear from you..

ohh my surprise was put off from the hurricane, but now that everything is in order, Ill try and finish it by Friday..and then we will hold a drawing to see who wins the PRIZE...yay aren't you excited?? I know I am...ok darling..well I have to go eat..I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend..take care darling..au revoir

Oh my heavens! Those two squirrels are just the sweetest aren't they? I am so happy that they are safe until everything dries out...they are certainly lucky they found you! I absolutely can't do scary movies on Halloween...but, I do watch silly ones instead. I love Shawn of the Dead however...it's the best funny zombie movie ever...

So glad to hear that your damage wasn't worse.

I'm with you on fall and winter. I used to love summer, but now I always look forward to fall!!!

Looking forward to seeing your surprise.

Take care,
Kathy

The story of the squirrels is SOOO cute! I can't believe they actually came to you (but really - the weather must've scared the crap out of them!!!).
Hocus Pocus is by far the best Halloween movie ever! Followed by the Nightmare Before Christmas! What could I add to your list? Well one zombie movie (that's not super gory!) and actually is kind of 'touching' is Fido. It's a great movie about a 1950's family that takes in a zombie as a pet because all their neighbors are doing it. It's so good.
Rent it!!
