    Happy Halloween

    Okay....Ready, Set, GO! We are officially ready for Trick-or-Treaters.

    The snow is almost melted, none of the electrical decorations shorted out (bonus!). The pumpkins are carved, the shepherd's hooks are out and the luminaries filled with candles.

    The spiders have arrived, along with the skull and see the sign???? Consider yourself warned. Or is that BEWAREed????

    The skeletons are hung and the cauldron is filled with candy.

    My cocktail is poured and the Witch is in!

    On that note, I bid you a safe and.....

    For your reading enjoyment here is something fun that I found over at Candles & Wicks. It seemed fitting for the occasion!

    The Three Witches

    by William Shakespeare
    [Act IV, Scene 1 from Macbeth (1606)]

    Thrice, the brinded cat mewed.
    Thrice, and once the hedge-pig whined.
    Harpier cries ! 'Tis time!
    Round about the cauldron go;
    In the poisoned entrails throw:
    Toad that under cold stone Days and nights has thirty-one. Sweltered venom, sleeping got,
    Boil thou first i'the charmed pot.
    Double, double, toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

    Fillet of a fenny snake
    In the cauldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
    Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth, boil and bubble.
    Double, double, toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

    Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
    Witch's mummy, maw and gulf
    Of the ravined salt sea shark,
    Root of hemlock digged i'the dark,
    Liver of blaspheming jew,
    Gall of goat, and slips of yew
    Slivered in the moon's eclipse,
    Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips,
    Finger of birth-strangled babe,
    Ditch-delivered by a drab,
    Make the gruel thick and slab.
    Add thereto a tiger's chaudron
    For the ingredience of our cauldron.
    Double, double, toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

    Cool it with a baboon's blood;
    Then the charm is firm and good....

    Blessed Samhain )O(

    Until Next time...Happy Needling!!!

    Jane, it's nice to have you visit and look around. Thank you! I really like the music too. I'll be popping in to visit you too.

    How was your Halloween, Cat? Did you dress your little doggies up? As cats, maybe??? LOL. You should have seen DH, he was a real pig!

    Thank you, Miss Mindy. Wicked works for me :-)
