Outpost Caretakers Week 8 ~ BOO!November 7, 2011 | 1407 Views
Our weather this past week has been anything but boo-tiful. How appropriate that Friday delivered us an ominous looking sky. I say appropriate since I had deemed it “Halloween Weekend” at the Outpost. What can we do way out here where there won’t be any trick or treaters or a costume party to go to….. well there’s always food, drink and movies. I had given the scary movie line-up a thought while we were out for the summer and I think I came up with a good mix. We’re more into the classic horror movies, so I’ll be curled up in the corner of the couch, hiding behind my hands to be scared by Psycho, Halloween, Scream 4 (not old but I like the series), The Exorcist, Carrie and ending the marathon with a movie made for caretakers….“The Shining”.
Mike got in the spirit of things and made a devilish fire.
While my brain was thinking about movies I totally overlooked searching for any decorations I could find in the middle of summer with a scary Halloween theme. With a little searching and imagination the OP took on a spooky appearance.
A twist on the jack-o’-lantern.
Time to get the party started…with a Black Widow.
One of our favourite types of meals is a variety of finger foods. Chicken wings, cheese & crackers, a couple of dips and spreads, some devilled eggs, pickled eggs and for something just a little sweet, lady’s fingers.
Was this Saturday, Sunday or Monday? Each day has been looking much like the other.
All weekend I had this strange feeling that someone was watching us.
Mike’s been after me to make him some pickled eggs……maybe Halloween was a bad time to ask.
Can I offer you a finger?
Nothing like sitting around with a friend sharing a glass of wine, some finger food and watching a good scary movie.
Couldn’t resist getting in on the action.
What a great weekend, but I think we are ready to watch a chick flick or anything with a bit of humor. Still can’t shake that feeling that we aren’t alone. Strange.
Till next week,
Heather & Mike
