2014 Christmas Project

We did not skip September, those are just a bit more involved and are not yet complete.

October, however, is another ball of yarn.  Being the witching month, October's theme is Halloween.  Halloween is a holiday steeped in tradition.  Also known as Hallowmas and Day of the Dead, it is said to be a time where the veil between the living and the dead thins.  Many take this time to remember the ones who have crossed over already.

For children, young and old alike, it's about the tricks and treats.

In honor of the children, we made witches hats with lots of sparkle.  Remember to be safe this holiday season.  Don't go out alone, always have an adult inspect your candy before eating any, and wear reflective tape on your costume or a light colored costume so others can see you.

Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 My sister-in-law, Debbie, grows beautiful dahlias and, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, gave me this beautiful arrangement of some of those flowers.  She herself is a breast cancer survivor.

Breast cancer can strike anyone, regardless of gender.  Be diligent.  Knowing your own body and how it feels is often the first line of defense.  It's better to be safe than sorry.

Thank you Debbie for your beautiful flowers, and may you continue to be cancer free.
