Time to go pumpkin hunting

Just a super quick “get another Arcade pic done” post before I head out for the evening to do some trivia and whiskey tasting. My friends and I are instituting a “Whiskey Tasting Wednesday” once a month. It’s a thing. Anyways, this round of the Arcade close tonight. You’ve got – *checks the clock* – 5ish more hours to get your fill until it comes back on December 1st.

We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong

Summertime is definitely here. The sun stays up longer, the heat is creeping in, tourists are taking over… and getting away from it all sounds like a great idea. When I was young, we camped every summer. Sometimes it would be at Girl Scout camp (yes, I was a girl scout) and other times it would be with my family at campsites all up and down the California coast.

Positive Thinking Sees the Invisible, Feels the Intangible, and Can Achieve the Impossible

…Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you’ve done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone…

I Make My Bed with the Stars Above My Head and Dream of a Place Called Home

When I saw the ads for this round of Uber, I immediately knew I had to have the Stargazer Hanging bed from Cheeky Pea. This round’s theme is Celestial so creators have made stars and moons and all things in a futuristic / spacey kind of way. I ran with that theme and pulled out some things I had buried in my closet and made a bedroom using those, the bed, and a few other things I picked up at Uber.

Some Days the Memories Still Knock the Wind Out of Me…

…We’re reeling through an endless fall
We are the ever-living ghost of what once was

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one’s gonna love you more than I do…

I Became Insane with Long Intervals of Horrible Sanity

MACABRE

[muhkah-bruh, –kahb, –kah-ber]
adjective
1. gruesome and horrifying; ghastly; horrible.
2. of, pertaining to, dealing with, or representing death, especially its grimmer or uglier aspect.
3. of or suggestive of the allegorical dance of death.

This month’s Uber theme is macabre. I’m not sure what it says about me that the first idea I had for a picture after shopping there was a scene of me standing over a dead body, but there you have it. For Halloween this year I had a friend host a murder mystery night/scavenger hunt and I helped with writing some of the trickier clues and story line. Maybe that’s where the inspiration for this picture came from? Because  I swear I have no true homicidal urges or tendencies. Anyways…
