my favorite month...october...is almost here.
october brings cooler weather. the leaves are starting to turn shades of red...
and floating down to the ground.
october also brings halloween! probably my favorite holiday.
zombies. ghosts. vampires & werewolves. all things spooky and dark....and fun!
haunted houses...horror and all things ghoulish...spiders & their webs...
stepping out the front door the other morning...we couldn't believe the
size of this spider web!
from the porch roof...down to the railing!
NOW...it REALLY looks like we were getting ready for halloween!
earlier this week we heard the Barred Owl's distinctive HOOT out back...it was still light out so i grabbed my camera. usually it's too dark to get a decent picture. i was lucky this day!
and a few more cool pictures from this past week...
...and for those of you that know about my 'bone collecting'...i found a hog carcass earlier this week. or maybe it was a boar? i'm not sure. all i do know is that it stunk...was pretty clean of all meat. BIG rib cage with spine...intact. i wouldn't have even known it was a hog...except for the hooves. obviously dumped along the side of the road by a hunter...it wasn't there the previous day. my son & i tossed it over the fence, into a field...so it wouldn't get run over or dragged away. i'll go claim it this weekend with sam. and if it still smells, which it probably will...i'll set it way out back...cover it with wire or something...and let the insects and weather continue the cleaning process!
i also finished another "Bone Garden" art piece. (you can check out the Planet Beenderen tab above!)
this one is made of raccoon, armadillo and deer bones.
"Chief Beenderen: Protector of the Planet"
well, it's nearly 5:00.
AM that is.
time for another cup of coffee.
it's kinda funny how i wake up earlier on the weekend than i do during the week.
i think it's because i don't want to waste any time.
i don't want to sleep away any hours.
There are never enough hours in a day,
but always too many days before Saturday.
have a safe weekend...
enjoy. be adventurous. discover.
