Daily Prompt: Trick or Treat…Is Your Light On?

Daily Prompt: Trick or Treat

by michelle w. on October 31, 2013

If bloggers had their own Halloween and could go from blog to blog collecting “treats,” what would your blog hand out?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TREAT.  



Will your light be on for the trick or treater’s who pass by your house this year?

Will you be like a few of my friends who turn all of their lights off and pretend like they are not home so that they do not have to open their door?

I have often asked those friends why they hide in their homes and do this, as they give to a lot of various charities so I know it is not about the money.

Their answers are all about the same… “I just do not like this season”.

It seems that there must be an easier way to handle the situation than become a prisioner in your home and reading by a flashlight so that no one will know if you are home or not.

I also have several friends who are on the other end of the spectrum and plan for an entire year for this day.  They have an elaborate yard with special effects that are not too spooky for the little ones.  They are also the friends who decorate for Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as several other Holidays…

Since we live way out in the country, we have only had one year where we had two children who stopped and visited our home.  They were really happy that they did too…

We took all kinds of pictures, gave them a ton of candy and really made a big deal about their costumes and how great they looked.  Sadly they moved.

If you are visiting my blog then I will give you a treat…


Stay safe this Halloween and please keep your animals inside where they will be safe…

Check the childrens candy as there are some sick people out there or just go where you know the people…

Check to see what is going on in your area that is inside and safe… a lot of malls are putting on functions as well as fire stations and Churches.

If using candles in your pumpkins please watch where you place them and be sure that if they get knocked over that a huge fire will not be started.

Daily Prompt: Competition Of Myself

Daily Prompt: Competition

What activity, task, or game most brings out your competitive streak? 

I would have to say that the making of a video in that each time I want it to be better.  I will stay up overnight if necessary to work on it to perfect it before I publish it.

I have a tendency to become OCD and Anal Retentive with the timing of the video until it is completed.

Last night’s video was no exception and then I had to blog about it as well before I could crawl into bed at 5 AM this morning.

We had not made a video, other than cooking video’s in a while.  This one was a near and dear to the heart one and was to two very special people that we felt deserved the video to be made.  Being certain that everything was in place for the video was crucial.
