Halloween Weekend

WOW! Did this past weekend go quickly! Saturday, I hiked Runyon Canyon, came home made two types of brownies (with and without the cream cheese filling) to take with us to a friends Halloween Party. After the party, we went to the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival.

There were so many wonderful and creative costumes this year and so many people.

Sunday, we went to see Michael Jackson's This Is It. We really enjoyed the film. It is very well done and shows what a true talent he was. After the film, we drove to Olvera street to watch the Day of the Dead celebration.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend too. Difficult to believe it is already November. Soon we will be gathering for Thanksgiving. I have 99% decided I will not be going to visit family back east this year for the holidays. Hmm, what adventure shall we have? Time to put the thinking cap on. lol

stay sweet, Dit

Noticed that you are into photography and I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting that I started in July called "5 on the fifth" where you take 5 random photographs on the fifth of the month and post them to your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site - I then update my blog entry so the world has your link.


Here's a link to my blog

and a link to the last "5 on the fifth" entry
