Spooky Quotes for an October Night

Time to shiver... we are reading a few ghostly quotes this evening...

1. Now about those ghosts. I'm sure they're here and I'm not half so alarmed at meeting up with any of them as I am at having to meet the live nuts I have to see every day.
Bess Truman

2.   It is little I repair to the matches of the Southron folk, Though my own red roses there may blow; It is little I repair to the matches of the Southron folk, Though the red roses crest the caps, I know. For the field is full of shades as I near the shadowy coast, And a ghostly batsman plays to the bowling of a ghost, And I look through my tears on a soundless-clapping host As the run-stealers flicker to and fro, To and fro:รถ O my Hornby and my Barlow long ago!
Thompson, Francis

3. There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

4. Ghost stories really scare me. I have such a big imagination that after I watch a horror movie like 'The Grudge', I look in the corners of my room for the next two days.
Vanessa Hudgens

5. I figure I basically am a ghost. I think we all are.
John Astin

6. A ghost is someone who hasn't made it - in other words, who died, and they don't know they're dead. So they keep walking around and thinking that you're inhabiting their - let's say, their domain. So they're aggravated with you.
Sylvia Browne


 I hope you will stop by to take a peek at my series of quotes, the good, the bad and the ugly lol!/

Quotes About the Moon

Can't help it... I love the mystery of night and all it has to offer. And during the fall, even more so!


There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
George Carlin

Gray hairs seem to my fancy like the soft light of the moon, silvering over the evening of life.
Jean Paul

I’ll be your friend in daylight. I’ll treat you as a comrade in every gas-lit ballroom. But alone, under moonlight, I’ll not pretend that I want you for anything but mine.”
Courtney Milan,

For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us.

Richard H. Baker

“The moon is at her full, and riding high, Floods the calm fields with light. The airs that hover in the summer sky Are all asleep to-night.”

William C. Bryant

What We Are All AboutWhen I was little, I loved to stretch out across my bed and write stories. Give me a blank book of paper and a pencil and I was in heaven. Sometimes I think that we forget all about the fun part. I hope this blog brings a little of it back! :) You have one minute to write down anything that comes into your head!

When I Am Unable To Sleep

X-ray of the erect lumbar spine with a S-conve...Image via Wikipedia

I don't know if this will work for everyone, but it's helping me so I'm passing it along.


I have Scoliosis in my lower back and it often makes finding a comfortable position for sleep almost impossible and some night's it's more difficult than others. But, I recently found that if I listened to a novel (with the lights out)  before falling asleep, it seemed to relax all the muscles in my back. I don't know how it works, but it seems to be doing the job. And then, the minute I feel myself begin to drift, I shut off the player and seconds later I'm sound asleep.

If you are going to give this a try, you might want to consider what kind of story would relax you. The last thing you want is for your brain to be racing with the storyline. Give it a try and see if it works. It sure feels nice to be able to fall asleep like everyone else!!

A Nice Way to End the Day

School children singing, Pie Town, New Mexico ...

Do you regret even a minute of time that you spent with your kids today? I can almost bet that the answer will be no. If you are even thinking about this one, just remember that they grow up so quickly. My first born is now a grown man with a wife of 6 months. I can still remember when he was a toddler, driving me crazy. I would go back in a second if I could.

Tears of the Moon [With Earbuds] (Playaway Adult Fiction) (9781607758808): Nora Roberts, Patricia Daniels:…

I love just about anything that Nora Roberts writes... and this trilogy is right up there and believe it or not, this is how I end my night! I place the "playaway" on my pillow, plug in the earbuds and listen for a half hour. That is pretty much it. I have no trouble falling asleep then. Now, if I can just figure out how to pull the story into my dreams!! I'm working on it. lol!!

A French Love Quote


Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and blows up the bonfire.

Anne Rice's Thoughts About Vampires

Blackwood Farm (The Vampire Chronicles)The vampires have always been metaphors for me. They've always been vehicles through which I can express things I have felt very, very deeply.

Anne Rice

It's been years since I read anything by this author. Time to curl up and read a few chapters just before bed ;)

It's not good for you anyway!

You never lose that which is for your
highest good under any circumstances.
When it seems that you have lost
something, it's because it's no longer
best for you.

I like that idea... kind of makes you feel better!

What Love Is...

Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never... never forget it.

Curtis Judalet

I like to think that after spending the last 30 years with the same person... I have found it. :) But there are days lol!

Monday

Before You Turn In

Devote each day to the object then in time and every evening will find something done.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

My Formula for Living

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the moring and I go to bed at night. In between I occupy myself as best I can.
Cary Grant

Ah, if life was just that simple lol... It might have been, but not any more.

It's a cruel season that makes you get ready for bed while it's light out. 
Bill Watterson

Looking Forward to Bed... already

I thought that I slept really well last night, but today, every muscle in my back is aching. Not sure if I slept too long in one position, I'm in need of a new pillow... I go through them like crazy, or I have been working out too strenuously. Whatever I have done... I hurt big time today. As it is, it's close to 80 degrees and I'm sitting with a hot pad against my back! That just isn't right!!

Here's to a great night's sleep! I sure will be in need of one tonight!!

Thoughts About Dreams

We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”

Do Yoga... you sleep in!

At least that's what I did last night and didn't open my eyes until 8:15 this morning. That's so not like me!
