Catch Up Time - Haiku, Halloween Candy and Haunting, Oh My!

Can you catch time lost
dancing in the leaves of fall
before its too late?

Not to be confused with Ketchup, its always time for ketchup, but right now I am trying to get caught up with my weekly postings, so I am going to combine the Express Yourself (sorry I am late) with blog hop news and stuff.

All right, updates first.
I am participating in this years Wep Bloctober Fest Haunting on the 30th of October. As a part of this blog hop anything related to Halloween goes, and I already have the perfect little story planned. Really looking forward to this.

I am also absolutely, without a doubt participating in NaNoWriMo this year. There are books that have to be finished, and I am using this commitment to make it so. No more excuses, get er' done. That's it.

My other blog has not gotten as much of my attention as needed, because of the time I put in my writing and into trading (yes I wrote trading, as in stock market - there is a horror story right there), but I am planning on getting that under control as well. You can find the Shrine of Hecate blog by using the link on the top of the blog.

Now to Express Yourself - yay!

Well we were supposed to write about the favorite candy we enjoyed finding in our halloween bag, well I have a tie here between - drum roll please - Reeses and Almond Joy. Yes I know it is boring, but I like both. The spoiled rotten European part of me would prefer some Milka Chocolate, or some Lindt but hey that is a little unreasonable for a Halloween bag. And peanut butter as well as some coconut are always a winner. My kids would not agree, lol. My son is a Kitkat kind of person, while my daughter would prefer something salty, like pretzels.

So that's all for now folks. Hope you are having a wonderful week.
