happy halloween

Happy Halloween all! I hope you are enjoying this last day of October.


When I realised that today was Halloween the first thing that came to my mind was ‘The Munsters’ show. I loved that series! Tim and I still watch the reruns of the show on youtube occasionally along with ‘Mr. Ed’, ‘Green Acres’, ‘Petticoat Junction’, ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’, ‘Andy Griffith’ and ‘I Love Lucy’. My goodness, those where wonderful shows!


In all fairness I have to give a shout out to ‘The Addams Family’. Now this was not a show that I watched much. Yes, I’ve seen a show or two but it was never a favourite of mine. It seems that if you were a Munsters fan you didn’t care much for ‘The Addams Family’. Who knows, maybe they were on at the same time on opposite channels.


Anyway, I want to know which one was your favourite, ‘The Munsters’ or ‘The Addams Family’. Why? Just because I’m a bit of a curious cat today. It is Halloween day after all.

On the home front I’ve been busy sewing up a storm. I got my Yukon order finished and shipped last week. Whew, glad that is done! Now I’m working on orders to fill a table for the local Christmas bazaar. It’s all been fun. I will try to put together a post of some of the items in the next week so you can see what’s keeping me busy and entertained.

Don’t forget to let me know which show you liked best!



Mockingbird Hill Farm


This last weekend Tim and I met a couple of our children and five of our grandchildren in Sault Ste. Marie to spend a couple of days together before the snow begins to fly. We wanted to find a pumpkin patch for the children to enjoy. And we did, Mockingbird Hill Farm!


Mockingbird Hill is a working farm. The boys liked looking at and petting the cows and sheep. When I offered to buy food for them to feed the animals out of their hands they were very quick to say, “no thank you, Nannie”! 


Lambert is now ten. I can’t believe how much he has grown just since his visit here in July. I think he’s now going through that no smiling for photographs stage! Too bad his Dad was working, you could see that he is a spitting image of him.


There’s a lamb hiding behind our DIL and our youngest grandson. Little Ganon just turned six months old.


It was hard to get the boys to pose for a photo, they were busy hunting chickens and chasing cats. I think the only animal they weren’t taken with on the farm was the pigs!


We all had fun in the corn maze.


When I spotted this old wagon I knew it was the perfect place for a photo opt! The grand children first……


and their parents next.


Everyone spent a lot of time in the pool.


We all had a great time together and it was hard to say goodbye. You know what I talking about if you’re one of those grandparents that are not fortunate enough to have your grandchildren living near you!


Monday is Thanksgiving Day here in Ontario.

 I want to wish all of my Canadian friends a happy and  a blessed day.
