On the hunt for a specific shade of grey fabric last week at several JoAnn Fabric stores. Noticed the Halloween selection varied considerably store to store. If the various store employees compare stories-the crazy lady in the big black and white hat, playing with all the Halloween goodies, must come up.

Halloween updates and plans
So many goodies in the stores right now. Pier One has several Day of the Dead pieces this year that are well done. Going to try and get more pics up this week.
The pumpkin patch is losing the battle to powdery mildew. My 10+ pound pumpkins are almost completely orange. Picking will probably be in 2 weeks. Earliest pumpkin harvest ever. Guess the super high temps were good for pumpkins.
We collected branches tonight from a major park cleaning project across the street. Mr. Old Fashion Halloween is going to build a scarecrow for me. We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary this month. Still spooky after all of these years.
Plans have been made to go to Disneyland for Mickey's Halloween Party mid October. Still trying to come up with costumes that can be worn all over the park and on rides for 8 hours. Warm weather friendly is another requirement.

Halloween at Costco
Not pictured is a skeletal dog with glowing red eyes. There were 3 huge racks of mostly little girls costumes. A fairy princess explosion. No mega candy bags yet.
