Haunted Humpday ~ Thrift Store Goodies

The wind is blowing in all sorts of spicy, witchy, wanderlust's of fall. Yes I am aware that it is still August and there is summer fun still to be had. That deep feeling of transition is going on within me and I can't help but plunge into what is to come when the season changes. The lovely Marfi of Incipient Wings has started off Haunted Humpdays early this year and I'm excited to get the Halloween ball rolling, are you? 

I had the urge to roam a thrift store last week for sweaters and I came across these goodies. Not bad for $5.00. The first jack o lantern is ceramic and I plan on putting in an aromatic candle to fill the house with spice and highlight Jack's luminescent grin. The wreath will adorn my door, and the basket will  hold treats. I usually start to decorate the beginning of October but will  start mid-September this year. I'm  hoping to be more crafty this season so I'll have fun projects to share in the future. If you would like to share your post leave a comment with your link and don't forget to head on over to Marfi's Blog and check out the collective musings of other Haunted Humpday participants.

May these words help and heal whatever may be on your heart and mind so metamorphoses can begin. Have a beautiful start to the day and take time for yourself in midst of the daily hustle.

The Midway Of August

It's hard to believe August is half way through already. Casa Sol y Luna (a.k.a my little house) has been bustling with the round up of back to school prepping, chaos, and general boredom. These children are ready to get back to school and frankly so am I. My oldest child {S} started high school at my alma mater on Thursday. It's bittersweet how fast these years fly by and this is a great reminder to slow down and embrace moments as they occur.

Here's my handsome freshman! He is very talented in many ways and destined for greatness. On Wednesday my daughters start school. {E} will be a 6th grader, and {L} will be in 4th. I have decided to home school  my 3 1/2 yr old son {M}. The craziness of drop offs and pick ups plus the fact he's my last baby are part of what brought me to this decision.  Hopefully I can incorporate our fun learning into this blogging.

Summer is slipping away. There are 37 days till Fall's official entrance. We've yet to go camping and finish projects that were day dreamed in early summer. Have I mentioned the garden? Well that folks is a sad joke, and I'll blame the drought and the fact that we conserved and let everything go blond. However I do still plan on trying for fall to get things growing, in the garden, spiritually, and in other aspects of life. I wish you all a beautiful and adventurous weekend.
