Welcome to my party!

Merry Meet to all my new friends from A Fanciful Twist!
Welcome to a Daily Dose of Diva.
A daily dose of my every day doings of a Diva - that's me,
The Queen - my very best bud & roomate,
and Grandpa - My fiancee who acts far older then he is...
oh, and we mustn't forget my very well traveled skeleton baby,
Sheldon.
(Sheldon's escapades are often a main focus here on a Daily Dose)
It has been a rainy, dreary day today -
I wanted to go out and take some pictures...
decorate a little more...
(other then my normal every day oddities)
But all I got done was a few mimosa's at my favorite restaurant...
You can see the kind of day it is here in CT below...
Sometimes we bake...
Sometimes we cook...
(Ok, the Queen does most of the cooking...)
But I made this yummy pumpkin bread
You can get the recipe from MrsB...

http://silvermoonwitch.blogspot.com/2001/10/october-is-definitely-month-where-i.html

It was a whole loaf -
but my boys devoured it before I got my proud moment picture!
I guess that means it was yummy!
and yesterday...
After my day in the park...
I took a walk out back and this is what I found
Pretty cool, right?
Here are a few pictures ...
I will be adding more as we get closer to our big Halloweenie Bash
here at la Casa Diva...
*laughs* yes - this is basically "before" decorations!
Just a few odds and ends added...

So please stop back and see us again!

You do NOT want to miss Sheldon's Halloween costume!

Until then...

Blessed Be!

oooo...I almost forgot...since I am really crappy when it comes to adding buttons and things...Here is the link to Venessa's fantastic party that you definitely do NOT want to miss!

I just love you Eva! The photo of the crows in the pumpkin patch is hypnotic to me ... I keep returning to it ... like there's a secret message in it for me.

Hmmm ...

BTW - Today is our "Sunday" and I see Mimsosas in our crystal ball! :D
