A Triumphant Return?

I am thrilled to say I have finally gotten caught up on everyone’s blog. PHEW! While I did not comment as much as I would have liked, I did read each and every post and tried to comment and like along the way on everyone’s blog so you know I was there. I have felt so guilty being out of the blog loop for so long. But I’ve been experiencing a general malaise that left me disinterested in most things and unable to get myself to do much over the last few weeks. I’m trying to pull out of it, and getting reconnected with my blog family is the first step. I’ve missed you all!

As mentioned yesterday, we did a little extra decorating for Halloween. I tried to get some decent pics, but this is the best I could do:

I want to get some pumpkins to stack around Linus so he looks like he’s in a pumpkin patch.

I also got a few new Toys recently. Todd McFarland Toys is producing a new line of DC Super Powers figures and accessories and I got the first wave and second waves:

They are slightly bigger than the original Super Powers figures, which cost me an arm and a leg to collect the complete set of 35 years later. I’m not making that mistake with this new series of figures. I’m getting them as soon as they come out. I look forward to see which figures are coming next. Hope there are more of the women characters this time around.

Also, because I watched and loved the League of Super-pets recently, I HAD to have the toy set of the main cast:

Right to Left: Evil meta-morph guinea pig minion, Lulu the evil genius hairless guinea pig (experimented on by Lex Luthor,) Chip the Squirrel, PB the pot-bellied pig, Krypto the Super dog, and Ace the Bat hound. For some reason, they did not include Merton the turtle, and I’m bummed about that.

Finally, I got my made-to-order display case for my light up “Everyone is Awesome” Lego kit:

Now that I’ve spent the day catching up with all my blogger friends’ lives, and catching you up with mine, we are going to have an early dinner of Caprese Salad and Filet Mignon and enjoy a Halloween-themed movie or two.

Stay safe, all.

  1. My fave thing among your Halloween decorations is that fabulous three-eyed toad (frog?) sitting by your fireplace! And hey, I just watched “The League of Super-Pets” a couple of weeks ago and it was fun! There were a few wicked zingers in there for us adults too! I intend to rewatch it sometime for sure!


    • He’s just a generic 3-eyes monster. He was a gift from friends who thought he was the flying spaghetti monster. (I’m an atheist.)

      I will watch the League of Super pets many more times.


  2. Those ‘rainbow men’ puts me in mind of seeing on TV one of our English comedians illustrating the range of skin colours that humans come in by using a gradation of facial photos. At the darkest end of the range was a pic of a young Michael Jackson – and at the lightest end a pic of……an older Michael Jackson.
