almost halloween plus catching up, again

how does that old saying go? "red skies at night, sailor's delight"? isn't it apropos for me to type now that i live in a navy town and see sunsets like this?

yeah, i thought so.

unrelated to sunsets (as he is still a spry young chicken) leff turned 35 earlier this month. we had a party (some of the people in attendance can be seen at mustache guestbook) with a nacho buffet

and a dark chocolate and raspberry cake.

before the party we hit up 7-11 for the domokun promotional stuff, you know, like we do.

but the 7-11 here sucks. they were out of domo coffee cups. sigh...

you know what doesn't suck though? the squirmy family!

yep, those are the worms that eat our garbage. they really like fruit and coffee grounds.

anyway, let's move on to halloween. this year i decided to not carve pumpkins. (and by "decided not to carve" i mean "safeway doesn't deliver pumpkins for me to cut into")

so, no pumpkins? no problem. i have a surplus of recycled glass and recycled construction paper. hence these lanterns.

you can see all of them individually in the set. (oh, thanks for the link, megan!)

also in the set are four of these gigantic stencils. here's an example:

the phone is for scale, naturally. it's not like the evil dead skull was on speaker phone or anything.

i'll post a photo of them all properly installed on the 31st.

wanna' see how bremerton gets spooky?

it also sports mitchelless web looks

and has mobile pumpkins.

well, except through safeway delivery...*grumble*.

at samudra, there are fantastic dia de los muertos decorations

as well as pumpkin lattes

and pumpkin spice cookies.

they also have bubble up. like, bubble, bubble, toil and trouble? ok, no, that's probably stretching the analogy to the breaking point. still, it comes in nice green bottles which i enjoy.

speaking of bottles, here's a bottle of raspberry vinegar that i started a few days ago.

it's now a very nice red and tastes very fruity.

and with that, i'll leave you with the customary cat photos. two for the road this time, audrey fans!
