Tad bit of Halloween decor.

I started to decorate for Halloween today. I start in the bathroom. Don't ask me why, but I do. As I said before I stick plastic bugs on the toilet seat,teehee . The girls hate that, they don't use the upstairs washroom LOL. I'm such a mean mom ;) I was going to make a shower curtain out of webbing material, but it hasn't gone on sale yet. I missed out last year, hope I don't miss the sale this year.
This is actually at the bottom of our stairs. The pictures are out of order.
As you know I have 3 daughters. Well I needed something to go with the Halloween theme to put the girly things in. So I just quickly decorated this dollar store box.
This is a candle holder I picked up last year. I love the skulls dangling from it. You can't tell but there is a skeleton in the cage.
I painted this house about 21 yrs ago. I am surprised that it has survived 3 moves and 3 children. They always wanted to play with the little characters. I had to touch up Dracula more times than I can remember. You place a small bulb inside the house and the windows light up.
I painted this witch the same year as the haunted house. A yellow mini light is placed underneath to look like fire.
I have so many other things to put out, but tomorrow is another day.

This morning Heather and I went to the clinic. Her ears have been plugged, we have tried to use over the counter products to clean them, but nadda. Actually she couldn't hear out of her left ear. Of course being the worry wort that I am, I started thinking....did she complain about sore ears....did she get an ear infection .....does she now have hearing problems.
Heather is a tough kid, she never complains, and if she does she only does once. So I started freaking out that I made my daughter deaf.
Well it turns out that her ears were packed. The doctor couldn't even see her eardrum. So he cleaned them out and instantly she could hear. What a relief.

Today was a rainy, windy day. Power went out in certain parts of the city today. Luckily not here. According to Hubby's rain gauge 42mm of rain fell today. But the wind was crazy.
So I made some nice beef stew and Yorkshire pudding for supper. Just what the doctor ordered. Well he really didn't order it, but if I was a doctor I would have, it was delish.

Tuesday: So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

1. Cooked some comfort food.
