Hi, luvs!

Fall is in full swing here. The trees are starting to turn colors and the weather, while a little too warm for my taste, is semi-autumnal. I’ll be going to the orchard one of these weekends soon (getting some fresh apples and an apple pie), and the apartment is decorated with red, yellow, and orange, complete with ceramic and real pumpkins. :) I even have my flying Witch on the front door!

A reminder that the 2015 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is running. If you have a Marvel Comics idea that you can crossover with DC, remember that crossovers are welcome, and is not limited to Marvel.

I bought some apple/pomegranate lotion the other day. It smells divine!

I usually don’t buy doughnuts or muffins, but during October it’s a weekly run to Dunkin’ Donuts to get both in pumpkin flavors! Dontcha just LOVE pumpkin flavor?

I received my Trader Joe’s Frequent Flyer in the mail a few days ago. It’s the October (Pumpkin) edition. Sweet!

Patriots/Cowboys this Sunday! Whoo hoo!

I’m going to a Halloween party next Wednesday. I’m going as a Patriots fan with my Tom Brady jersey, my Patriots cap, and anything else I can scare up that’s Pats-themed. :)

It's been a glorious day! :)

1) Dunkin' Donuts has pumpkin everything back! :) I went out this morning and bought a pumpkin muffin and pumpkin pie doughnut. The doughnut's gone. ;)

2) My sister is helping a friend out with a yard sale. We had a ginormous one last year before the move. This time she's not in charge, just one of the staff. :)

3) I've been watching the Ken Burns documentary, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History and plan to see the finale tonight. I've studied that era of the New Deal so I know a lot of the facts/events but I'm seeing new photographs and newsreels. I enjoy immersing myself in another time. The Great Depression was terrible, but the energy that the New Deal generated to combat it was exciting. And the coming war certainly taxed FDR's considerable political skills! Anyway, great stuff. :)

4: One more: watching The Adventures Of Superman. It's from the black-and-white first season with Phyllis Coates instead of Noel Neill as Lois. Apparently Phyllis came across as 'too tough' and so they replaced her with Noel. I like her and she was tough, too, but they considered her more 'feminine'. Sheesh!

More food stories! ;)

Sunshine On The Menu, is a charming, light-hearted tale with clever dialogue as Mel meets Johnny for lunch in a Chicago restaurant.

Strange Brew II: Pumpkin Muffins is a whimsical Clark/Bruce tale involving muffins and Halloween. ;)

A Princess, A Pilot, And Pizza! features Steve and Diana enjoying a cozy winter evening…with pizza! ;)

Hi, luvs! Since I'm in a Halloween mood and food is always on my mind, despite the fact that I've lost twelve pounds in the last two months (Go, diet!), I'd like to ask if you have any Halloween-oriented recipes you'd like to share. They can be old family recipes or copied off a box or bag of ingredients or store-bought goodies, LOL! Cookies, cupcakes, pies, or other types of food welcome! Soup? Stew? Good for a cold autumn night? Post your recipes here or link to your journal or to a site where there's cool stuff! Pumpkin flavors are especially yummy!

Hi, luvs! Getting ready for the weekend? I have no special plans, but my sister did give me my birthday presents a little early since I won't see her until after Tuesday. :) Got some good swag, including a gift card to the local movie theater. Much appreciated, Sis! :)

I started writing my S/B story for the A Dark Knight In Smallville zine and when I was waiting for my Movie Night buddies last week, outlined practically the whole thing in a burst of creativity! Woot! :) I'm not sure how I'm going to end it yet, but the basics are in place and marching inexorably to the climax, so to speak! ;)

I had an idea for a Public Enemies Halloween story but got another idea that I might use instead. Not sure at this point. I can't quite get the hook for the first one, but I'm not sure if I'll have the time to write the second one. *ponders*

What's up with your writing or artwork? Snagged or inspired? Any Halloween bats, er, bunnies, hopping around? Pull up a comfy chair, grab a pumpkin latte and pumpkin muffin, and let's talk! ;)
