Master Liam Adam Dixon

I would like to introduce you to Liam Adam Dixon. 
He was welcomed into this world on Monday, October 24th. 
Mother and son are doing well.

This little guy has already endeared himself to Grandma. The day he was scheduled to arrive, the Front Range of Colorado received snow in excess of 12" in many areas. I would have had to drive my daughter through that snow to the hospital. But instead of waiting till that day to be born, Liam decided to arrive two days early! He's already earned a special spot in my heart.

Pumpkin Fields

This past weekend, my daughter, her kids and I went to choose some very lucky pumpkins to come home with us and be part of our Halloween celebrations. We went to a large farm not far from my house, Rock Creek Farm. There are over 100 acres of pumpkins which are grown here. 

I swear, when we drove up, I thought  I had gone to Pumpkin Heaven!! The fields were orange with the pumpkins that were waiting to be chosen! Next year I'm going back earlier in the season so I can partake of all the orange pumpkiny goodness!

It was oh, so hard to choose which ones to take home, all the pumpkins were gorgeous. But finally after traversing many fields, we were able to find some lucky gourds.

If ever there was a sincere pumpkin patch for The Great Pumpkin to rise out of, this is it!

Candy Corn Kisses

I am a HUGE fan of Candy Corn
I mean what's not to LOVE about this delectable goodie?
And while cruzing the interwebs, looking for Candy Corn, I ran across these ~
Hershey's Candy Corn Kisses!

It seems that the Hershey Company put these out a few years back.
But alas, they are not to be had now....

Cat Tales ~ Meat on the Hoof

We "Kittens" have kinda gotten board around The House.

(Kittens - that's the name that the Little Person that Mommy calls Miss Fae has given to Us. Me's kinda taken to liking her, though Me does still keep Me distance)  

Wes board cause The House is small and Wes can't go outside yet.
(Well.... Me has a confession, only some of Us Kittens can't go outside ....But that's a tale for another post!) 

So We Kittens have invented new games to amuse ourselves. And some of those games lead to grumbling amongst the Clowder - like the game of Stair Stalking. Ones of Us will lay in wait at the bottom or top (or sometimes middle) of the stairs and surprise another Kitten coming up or going down. Sometimes this game results in a scuffle and Mommy or Daddy comes running. 
Several times Mes heard Mommy and Daddy talking about "supplying Us with meat on the hoof" to keep us amused. 

Wonder if they was talking about mice......

Spider and the Goddess Project

I received the most lovely of surprises in the mail yesterday! A package came from my Sister in New Mexico. She sent the cutest Halloween card to our Family. And all the Grands were at my house when the package arrived, so We were all able to enjoy the Greetings. The Girlz thought the "Kittens" on the card were quite adorable!

She also sent me the loveliest of Four Corner Spiders! Fear not those of you who don't like those of the arachnid family, this little guy is a pendant. Don't I have the BESTEST Sister?  Thank You so much!!! 

My wonderful Sister also included a brochure about a fundraising project for the "Four Corners Goddess Temple". This Temple will be located approx. 20 miles south of Bloomfield, NM (Four Corners Region) and, once built, will be open to the public and provide a spiritual retreat where any deity may be honored. The project is being undertaken by the Order of the Cauldron of the Sage - a spiritual coven located in the Four Corners region of New Mexico. If anyone would like more info, feel free to ship me an email.

Sleeping in Hospitals...

Twice in the last week I have slept in the oh, so comfy (NOT) furniture supplied in hospital rooms.

My daughter, who is very much pregnant, has had to go to the hospital for high fever and contractions. The Baby isn't due until October 26th. Both hospital stays were short and my daughter Jen was discharged once the fever had broken and contractions had stopped. What is causing the fever is a mystery to the Doctor (though he does think it may be a viral infection which will have to run its course) and the Dr. is reluctant to deliver the Baby while Mom is ill.
So I catch up on my rest when I can, because I never know when I'll get another phone call....

Wire Ghosts

I found these images through the blog, The Modern Mourner. 
This blog is unique and well worth a visit - it's all about "finding new ways to mourn and cherishing one's memories and heritage". The images were originally found on the website, Pinterest.
I found these ghostly wraiths made from chicken wire quite captivating. And would love to eventually make some.
