Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Yeah, I'm excited, for a couple reasons. Numero uno: I am getting back into the swing of regular posting, and I love it. I have some good stuff lined up, if I am ambitious enough to get it all done.

Numero dos: I won another giveaway! I freaking (like the ghosts!) love Kristen over at While We're Waiting, and her giveaway was so fantastic, I even blogged about it! Now I'm blogging about it again, well, because I won!

As you can see, I couldn't wait to use my new treasures...

This Yankee Candle is "Boo!" and it smells like candy corn! My entire house smells boo-tastic, and I love the witch candle holder!

I also got this fabulous candle, "Beware!" Haven't lit this one yet, so I'm not sure what it smells like, but it looks creep-tastic on my wood stove!

And lastly, I couldn't help sharing the homemade card that came in the box -- although I don't know how Kristen feels about me sharing it. She wasn't too confident in her artwork, but I think it is showcase worthy, and it is sitting on the half-wall divider between my kitchen and living room spreading Halloween cheer to everyone who comes in!


So, I have yet to obtain a Halloween costume, even though it is this Saturday, and Jed and I do have a party to attend. Yesterday, I was actually considering skipping it and spending Halloween at home watching scary movies, or hitting up the parents' house, due to the zombie-like stitches in my back and the severe soreness they are causing me (more on that later this week, friends). Today I am feel better, so I'm reconsidering the Halloween party scene.

What are you all being/doing for Halloween? I'm thinking maybe I'll convince Jed to drive me (since I'm not really supposed to drive a lot) to the Halloween store on Saturday and hope to score a last-minute deal on a costume.
