Always Thankful for Family

A while ago I took my niece Livy to her grandparents cottage, and while we were there I thought it would be a good idea to take some Thanksgiving themed pictures because I wasn't sure I would see her for the holiday. And because I am all about cheesiness I made sure we had matching outfits. I will not even begin to describe the amount of shapewear I had to wear underneath to get this dress to fit. What can I say the only matching outfits I could find were in the kids department. Once I was trussed up and dressed like a turkey we headed outside to take some pictures. I got the camera all set up on the tripod and angled as best I could. I then scooped Livy up in to my arms and told her to say cheese. It seems the little trickster didn't like my smile and helped "fix" it.

She is just a laugh a minute I tell ya. I thought it would be good for Livy to write down what she was thankful for on an easel I found in the shed. I handed her a piece of chalk and got to setting up the camera for another picture. When I first walked over after adjusting the camera I saw she was thankful for candy.… Read the restSilly Girl

A Pirate Story Part Two

            When Morgana woke up the following morning she found a beautiful gown draped next to her. She has no idea who is was from or who had spotted her, but since it covered her much more than what she was wearing she put it on. Once dressed she spotted a ship in the cove below her, it felt like ages since she had been the captain of her own vessel.

           She lusted after the ship terribly and was lost to her own thoughts. She was staring dreamily at the ship as a stranger approached. He said to her, "I see you are staring at my ship.", needless to say this startled her greatly as she did not hear his approach.

               He didn't let on that he knew her to be the much famed Captain Morgana, but all good pirates knew who she was. He invited her to join him on his ship. Having few options available to her and with much caution she decided to join him. They sailed far from the archipelago that had caused her so much grief.… Read the restLonging - A Pirate Story

A Pirate Story – Part One

              Long ago in a far away land there was a pirate who sailed the seas. She was the much feared Captain Morgana. One days she sailed her ship too close to an island in an archipelago and was captured by the king's Navy. These men had her caged and brought to the king. He then ordered the men to place her in a secret location in the castle. This is where the king kept his human prizes. He and the lords or his court would stare with their beady eyes at all the ladies kept there. Once a day a shaft of light would land on her cage and it allowed her to keep hope alive.

                        One day after the cage was cleaned the guard did not snap the lock tight on her cage. This was her chance to escape! She quietly followed the route she glimpsed the lords taking each time they visited the secret rooms. After some trial and error she was finally free of the castle. She allowed herself one moment to pause and breath deeply the sweet salty air of freedom before looking for a means to getting away from the castle.… Read the restCaged - a Pirate Story

Fixing a Koala Nightmare

Every once in a while I take my adorable niece Livy to her grandparents cabin for a get away. It's a little cabin full of older furnishing and stuff my parents felt the need to keep. In one of the bedrooms sit a koala bear that I got as a graduation gift ages ago. Someone saw my cute bear and thought it would be funny to tell Livy about drop bears! Now she is terrified of the sweet bear sitting upon the chair. I think she envisions this when she looks at my poor bear.

Tonight when she was all ready for bed she covered her eyes trying to hide from the koala.

Since she was so terrified I decided to make up a little story to help her fall asleep and maybe forget about the whole drop bear thing...

Once upon a time there was a smart koala named Klaude. He lived in a house very similar to this one. He was a sneaky little koala and like to sneak out of bed at night and head to the kitchen to look for sweet treats.

After sneaking a treat he would head outside to find his friend Botti the black bear.

Shades of Brown

Brown seems to be the prevailing color in my world at the moment. I am sure it will soon be replaced with white, but for the time being there is brown. The trees are naked! I also realize I have been wearing boots a lot lately. I think that is because in my non-digital life I live in boots this time of year. It's possible I may have a boot addiction. But that is for another day. I chose the red purse for a pop of color against my brown canvas, though it does come with a HUD so I could have gone all brown. I think the red was a good choice.

There are many things that I envy about my digital self, one of those is her ability to always look good in a hat. She doesn't have to deal with hat head when taking one off. Oh well, at least with this hair I could wear it with or without the hat. I however think the hat looks good and besides you not want that heat escaping. I think I may have yammered on enough this morning. I will free you from my thoughts by sharing the credits of this look with you.

A Love Lost

If only he had listened to the warning on the wall and had not ventured into this strange lighthouse maybe he would still be with her. It has been a year since his mysterious death and she just can not let go. She wrapped herself in his old military jacket and pants just to feel close to him, sure they didn't fit properly, but they were his and she missed him greatly. After his death she fell into deep despair and was determined that she could bring him back to life. All year she search through libraries, old book stores, and even the few occult shops she found nearby. hoping to come across something that would help, and she did. Today was the day when she would bring him back to life!

She had found a book and gathered all the supplies that were required for his resurrection. She got to work reading the words and mixing all the things together. She was so filled with hope that he love would be returning to her. Suddenly a light began to emanate from the book. She looked on with bated breath awaiting for her love.… Read the restThe Tragedy

Last Leaves of Fall

This autumn has been a bittersweet one for me. It is the last one that I will be living in New England for. Now I may be biased, but I think Autumn in New England is beyond compare. The leaves are ablaze with colors that defy description. At least that is how I feel about it. As with most things the beautiful foliage must come to an end.

So as I sit here on the ground, as the last of the leaves float down, I will comfort myself knowing that like the seasons life changes. So as I await the start of winter I will await the new adventure ahead, just without the need for a heavy jacket just yet.

The Forgotten Corner

Here lies the forgotten corner of the attic. You know the spot where you put the furniture and such that is not in use. The stuff that will probably never be used but you can't see fit to get rid of it and let it go on to a new home. Yeah that corner. I finally went up to this ignored corner and found it infested, infested with imps! They seemed to have had themselves at home.

That imp it appears has a thing for the creepy old doll that scares me too much to get rid of. She has haunted my nightmares since I ventured up there.

Next I spotted these to, um fellas? I think they may have been playing patty-cake or maybe they were about to fight. I have no idea and didn't bother finding out because I was distracted by a grunting noise.

I looked down to see an imp in the process of giving his opinion on some love letters I had stored up there. I wasn't sure whether I should shoo him away or take it as a hint that is was time to let those love letters go. I didn't stick around to figure it out. I just backed my way out of the attic and closed the door.… Read the restThe Forgotten Corner

Thirst Quenching

What better way to spend an autumn afternoon than curled up with a handsome man and sipping some nice warm tea?

Now tea can be comforting and also thirst quenching, for most people. You see for the lovely couple one of them was not getting the satisfaction they were craving. They needed to try a different approach.

They stood, getting a little closer than they were. One of them still in need of something thirst quenching and that is when it happened.

And that is when it happened. The poor man never saw it coming. One moment he was looking into her gorgeous eyes and the next well, we can all figure that out can't we?

Love Her?

Every night she steps out of her coffin, her lips still showing where they were once sewn shut. When she was alive she was a beautiful and trusting girl. That trust is why she ended up in her lonely grave. The one man she loved and trusted put her there. Just a few short days after they were wed he poisoned her and stitched her lips closed so that she could not tell her tragic tale even in death. Now at night she leaves her small plot looking for a man to love her even in death.

                                                                Will you love her?

Flight Training

Every little witch needs to learn to fly, so in this part of the world flight training begins in preschool.

The teachers only let the kids get so high and of course are equipped with spells to safely bring the little darlings down should there be a mishap. The kids are taught proper take off and landing techniques and  how to hover. They don't learn more advanced things until they are much older. Most of the teachers are very good and pay close attention to their charges. However there are always a few who could work on their attention giving...

Daydreaming, while more than enjoyable, is really not the best thing to do when you have small beings in your care, especially if they are just starting their flight training. You know what is bound to happen when full attention is not paid.

Exactly, someone is going to have a broom accident. I am happy to report that the little witch in training was not hurt at that the daydreaming was given a different assignment. She can't do too much damage in the gardens...right?… Read the restFlight

The Witch’s Revenge

Last week I told you the story of the young man turning up for a dinner date and mysteriously dying. Well today I am going to reveal what happened to that young man. First you need to see where he lived, because I am sure you would never be as clueless as he was.

Now surly you can see that there is something going on at the house to the left. Here is is the middle of autumn and her grass and bushes are still a vibrant green. That is just not normal, but he went ahead and picked two of his neighbors prized roses. This is where his trouble began.
You see every evening his neighbor would go outside and sit upon her bench to gaze at her lovely roses. She always knew exactly how many were on each bush. Her roses were her pride and joy.

As she sat there she began her ritual of counting her roses. She was going along, counting ever bloom when she noticed that there were two missing, a white and a yellow one.

This displeased her greatly. She checked the ground to make sure they hadn't fallen off some how, but there was no sign on them anywhere.… Read the restThe Neighbors

Alicorn of the night

She drifts quietly over the sleepy little town, watching the dreamers, stopping the nightmares. It's a lonely job but she loves it.

The Deadly Date

This poor man had no idea when he was in for when he agreed to be a guest at her home for dinner. Being a romantic young man he thought there would be a candle light dinner, he may have been mistaken. Since his momma taught him never to arrive empty handed he helped himself to some of the roses in his neighbors garden. She would never notice a couple missing blooms.

Boy was he wrong! Before he was even given the chance to present his date with the flowers he dropped dead right on the spot. Now anyone looking in on this scene may have assume the pretty lady who was his date may have done something malicious with the knife in her hand, but that wasn't so.

Just look at that face. Does that look like the face of a killer. Sure she happens to be holding a knife, but it is clean, and so is she. And to add to that there doesn't seem to be a single sign of a stab wound of any kind on the young man. Did he simply have a heart attack or was it something more mysterious and underhanded? Stay tuned to find out what really happened to this young man...… Read the restDinner Date?

Phire’s Adventures in Havenhollow

I learned that there was some good trick or treating to be done in Havenhollow this year so I grabbed a treat bucket and headed out. I know I am too old to trick or treat so I made up an excuse about a sick sister who couldn't go out trick or treating. I have an innocent enough face that I am sure they all bought it, or at least played along. When I got there I decided the first thing to do to get me in the Halloween spirit was to go for a hayride.

Normally hayrides aren't that creepy to me, but being alone in the dark so far away from the houses I was planning to visit was a little unnerving. After the hayride it was time to start trick or treating.

The first house I hit seemed pretty normal so I was all ready to hit the rest. I may have been to quick to judge. I mean sure there were other houses that were as one would expect, then I came to this one...

I am not one hundred percent certain what was going on in there. I mean where people dressed and llamas and alpacas for Halloween? Maybe they brought live animals to the party?… Read the restHayride

Last of the tomatoes

With the end of the summer came the end of home grown tomatoes. I enlisted the help of Livy to pick all the bright red tomatoes from the vines. She prefers cherry tomatoes because she can pop them in her mouth and bite them, sending tomato insides flying everywhere.

Livy of course decided that walking the short distance to the house. She was also reluctant to give up the tomato she picked. I think she wanted to keep it forever, which would have been really gross after a while. We hauled all the tomatoes into the kitchen and got to work.

We started making some tomato sauce and to help out I asked Livy to stir all the spices in a bowl. I mean I couldn't let her near the stove that would just be an accident waiting to happen. In the end I finished making quite a few jars of tomato sauce. Soon we will use it in some tasty dinners, maybe I will even make pizza from scratch as a treat.

Bathing in the moonlight

Last night was an amazing night to see the moon. I know I stayed up to get a glimpse. Now I admit I had no idea about the lunar eclipse or anything when I took these pictures. I just knew that I had undies to wear. I don't know about you but if I am standing around in my undies it's most likely at night time.

I figured since it is supposed to be night time that I could make it be a full moon. And because it's a full moon I am just going to bask in the glow and feel the power of the moon flow through me. Now that I have gone all new - agey on you I will leave you with the credits.
