October Monthly News


Welcome to the October edition of monthly news!
One of my favorite months of the year! I love all things Spooky! Spooky movies, tv shows and Halloween! I already have my costume picked out, what about you?

We also had Canadian Thanksgiving. 
With being mixed race, it was hard for me this year. My caucasian side couldn't wait to have turkey dinner, but the Native side was feeling rebellious and not wanting to celebrate. I sometimes feel torn between my two heritages. This year has been exceptionally difficult with the residential school findings. I want to be thankful, and I try to be, but it's tough sometimes.
The best part of Thanksgiving was spending it with my beautiful daughter.
She lives so far from me and is busy teaching young minds, that moments like this I literally live for. Wish my son was also here but unfortunately he could not be. Rare are the days that I get them both home together.
Anyone else an empty nester? Do you feel my pain?

My favorite day of the year came today... HALLOWEEN!
I am the Trekkie and my work bestie is the scary Jack-O-Lantern.
I almost got the Vulcan sign up before my boss snapped the shot. Almost... LOL
What were you all dressed as this year? Do tell me in the comments.
Happy Halloween to you all!

  1. Glad that you were able to spend the holiday with your daughter even if celebrating felt odd. So glad you enjoyed Cemetery Boys. It was one of my favorite reads last year. Happy November!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
