Spooky Fragments

This week, Friday brings us not only Friday Fragments but also Halloween. Not many ghouls on our cul-de-sac but that was because only two of us bother to put our lights on and buy candy. We don't have many kid friendly neighbors on our street I guess. But that won't put a damper on the Friday Fragments with Mrs. 4444!

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Another long week has finally passed. And, of the week, today was the longest day of all. Probably because it's Halloween and there was an awful lot going on at school. No matter. It's all over now and I'm glad. So is everybody else at school. 

We have a scarecrow contest every year. The nurse and I had to put one up this year- two people who have zero time to take on anything extra. Sheesh. So, instead of getting busy, I got creative. Since we're starting the bullying program next week, that was the theme of the scarecrows. Here's what I came up with:

Creative, right? LOL Y'all should have seen the kids getting off the bus on Thursday morning. As they passed our scarecrow, they reached out and tried to feel the 'invisible' scarecrow. Priceless! 

Our superintendent resigned this week. I don't really have much of an opinion about her. Never have. But I have one about the way the announcement was made at our school. And that will be the topic on the Grits tomorrow. 

I had some orange paper lanterns left over from the engagement party back in September 2013 so I turned them into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

I am thrilled and delighted to say that tomorrow, our high will be ONLY 55 degrees!!! I can't begin to tell y'all how excited I am! This has been a long time coming. 

That's it for now. Tune in to the Grits tomorrow for rant about authority figures and their demands. 


  1. Looking forward to you " Grits" post!
    I love the lanterns, where did you find them?
    Now, about the 55 and I are polar opposites on this topic! Haha

  2. I ordered those lanterns for Birdie's engagement party and they arrived AFTER the fact. They've just been sitting there for over a year when, suddenly, the inspiration hit! I found them on eBay. I am one of very few who appreciate the cooler temps here in the low-country! LOL

  3. We have a high predicted of 68° today. I have windows and patio doors open to the fresh air. Loving it here, too, but not the 40° predicted for tonight....that's a little too cold!! I don't mind a light jacket or a sweater - enjoy it actually - but colder than that is too cold for me! Love what you did with the lanterns!

    1. PS.... the invisible scarecrow is a brilliant idea!! Love that the kids had to try to touch it. So cute!

    2. I love 40 degree weather. That's perfect for me. When it starts getting below freezing though, I'm out. Ha! I wish we had videoed the kids trying to touch the invisible scarecrow. It was so funny!

  4. I like the invisible scarecrow.................

  5. Invisible scarecrow was a brilliant idea to save time. I do wish trick-or-treat was followed more. It's fun to see the kids dressed up coming to your door. We had terrible weather this year so the number was way down. It seems Halloween is becoming a private affair more and more.

    1. I thought the idea was quite clever. The person in charge of this contest called it- "cleverly lazy." Ha! I prefer time saver.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
