HALLOWEEN.... and Stuff I googled for FRIDAY....

Something we do in our neighborhood at Halloween: Someone started doing this last year ..Yesterday morning we discovered our goody basket at the front door... so this morning.. on the way to take Steve to the airport we deposited 2 Goody baskets to two of our neighbors... Nothing like creeping up to your neighbors house at 5 am.. lol.. first you have to find neighbors that have not been hit.. as the letter states.. hope you can read it... in the goody basket is a mask.. you put that mask on your mailbox post.. so others know you have been hit.. Its kinda fun to do.
and gets us all in the Halloween spirit...


Found this while googling...

Roasting Pumpkin Seeds :
Cutting open the top of the pumpkin,

reaching your hand into the ooey gooey mess of pumpkin seeds and “guts”, clearing it all out and beginning your canvas.
Aaahhh – the fabulous sense of Halloween is upon you. But wait!
After every good carving session,
you really should enjoy the oh-so-seasonal treat of fresh roasted pumpkin seeds!

Start by rinsing all the pumpkin guts from the seeds, then pat them dry with cotton tea towels.
In a bowl, mix your seeds with a little bit of cold-pressed sunflower or safflower oil, and a good shake or two of sea salt.
Spread onto a baking pan in a single layer and bake in a 350 degree oven until are light, golden brown, stirring occasionally to make sure they are evenly roasted.
Let them cool,
then crack them open and splurge on the delicious innards.
Now that tastes like Halloween!

Did you know that pumpkin seeds are a fabulous source of protein, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, fiber and amino acids? They also contain calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, folate and niacin! What a power packed Halloween treat!

I did google some rather disturbing things.. there is an I hate fat people website out there.. It is called the Hate Book.. geez kinda scarey if you ask me.

From me to you:
The world out there seems to hate us..
The world in our soul strives to love ourselves as we are in this moment.. To me this moment does not mean forever.. it is just the Now.. who I am now and what I weigh right now.. I have to love that person as well as love the healthier thinner me being born.. with out love nothing can be done.. to hate a waste of energy .. to love oneself is a work of art.
Be proud of your accomplishments thus far..
Love who you are .. even you are not in the exact place you want to be.

Wish me well
Wish you well too...

I adore Halloween, Honi...

I wish we celebrated here as much as you guys do in the US.

It's my favourite time of year!

Onto a serious note, another interesting and thought provoking post as usual.

I especially enjoyed the last paragraph. So true!
