Musings On: RIP VII Wrap-Up

All good things must come to an end and it's time to usher out the RIP VII challenge. I had a lot of fun participating in this challenge. I took full advantage of Peril on the Screen and watched The Moth Diaries, Frankenweenie, Steven King's Bag of Bones, Edward Scissorhands, and my girls and I did our annual viewing of Hocus Pocus.

I took part in The Graveyard Book read along. I listened via audiobook, which was wonderfully narrated by Neil Gaiman! I've said it repeatedly but if you have the opportunity to get this book in audio, please do it. I promise, you will not regret it.

I finished things off by completing Peril of the First. The challenge was to read one book that fell within the challenge's theme. I read the mystery, What Remains of Heaven by C. S. Harris. A review for this one is forthcoming!

My girls made a yarn wreath for the door. It turned out really cute. They were proud of it.

And I tried my hand at doing a pumpkin carving that was unlike my ordinary triangle eyes and nose with a funny mouth. I used a pattern and it turned out okay, though only a few people could tell it was a bat! Hubs pointed out later, that when turned upside down, it looks like a creepy pumpkin face. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the Autumn season!

Finally, I'd like to send well wishes to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
