Devil's Backbone

Yesterday was a lazy Saturday afternoon.  We had already finished our commitments and were driving home when my husband gave me a wrong turn.  I love him, but honestly the man has the worst sense of direction ever.  Quickly realizing the error, I looked for a place to turn around, but major construction on the highway led us further out into the country.  We had already eaten lunch, had plenty of gas and a few snacks so I figured, let’s make this into an adventure.
The autumn foliage was beautiful. The last leaves clinging to the trees shimmered with radiant golds, rustic reds, and warm oranges.  We pasted fields of harvest corn and wheat and farm animals and old turn of the century homes until we stumbled upon “The Devil’s Backbone.”
A breathtaking river that ponds before cascading over a waterfall.  It was breathtaking.  We stopped and walked the length of the trail beside the river. We watched the geese play in the water. It was perfect.  The last few months have been very trying.  I’ve struggled with depression and overwhelming sadness, but this place was so beautiful and it was nice to enjoy with my family.  It was unexpected and very welcoming escape from our crazy life.
Sometimes when life hands you a wrong turn, maybe it was the direction you were supposed to take in the first place, you just didn’t know it yet.

Field of Screams

I’m so excited! I can hardly sit still to write this!!!
Tonight we are going to ‘Field of Screams’ which is a haunted house attraction with a frightmare asylum and a haunted hayride.  I’m such a horror junkie.  I love scary movies and ghost stories, but to get my heart racing and blood pumping in the real life experience…well I’m excited to say the least.

We are also taking our teenage daughter and her best friend with us.  At first, I was concerned about my kid being so scared out of her mind that she’d end up sleeping in our bed for the rest of her life, but then I realized what a perfect cover it would be. Two teenage girls? I have someone to blame my girly screams on tonight! “What girly sniveling, sobbing screams of terror, Sir?” It wasn’t me! (Point to the two girls)

I’ve been slowly getting into the Halloween spirit.  The house got decorated last week like I promised.  So what about you, what is the scariest thing you have done to get that sensational feeling of being scared?

Spooktacular Time of Year!

Well as we are fast approaching Mid-October, I sit here watching the wind blowing the golden yellow-orange and fiery red leaves from the trees outside my window.  They flutter to the ground and swirl around in a beautiful, colorful flurry.
The trees have decorated my house for what should be a festive time year, because I haven’t.  Normally by this time, I would have pumpkins up, spider webs, my famous glow-in-the-dark footprints tracking across the front lawn…but I don’t.  I haven’t done anything spooktacular at all.

I’ve had a hard time getting into the Halloween spirit this year.  I usually love decorating for Autumn.  It is my favorite time of year, but since my Mom passed away a few months ago, I’ve been having such a hard time finding the joy in the simple things that use to bring me such pleasure.  Everyone keeps telling me that it will pass.  The first year after losing someone is the hardest.  Those first holidays and special dates are the most painful without them.

Today, I’m going to decorate! I’ve committed to it and I’m going to do it.  I know my husband and our child have been worried about me and they have tried not to push me, but my hiding away from the world is hurting them too.  As soon as I finish posting this, I’m gonna dig out the boxes of ghoulish decorations.

So, what is your favorite Halloween decoration? What is the one thing that you are known for doing to make your haunted home the most frightful house on the block?  Share with me your decorating tips as I try to jump back into the Halloween spirit.
