Halloween in Fawnskin

Our little mountain lake resort is nestling into fall–and it is hard to believe we are at the end of October.

Lots is happening around town with winterizing activities.

This week has been a tough one emotionally as another family member is heading in for tests and a procedure in a couple of weeks. To help handle it, GG has been out with Shadow.

I’ve managed to hike about an hour every day. It is a bit tough still and I have to rest but I am doing it and it is a great thing after a few years of health challenges.

On Saturday night Moose Lodge 2085 is holding a Halloween Party with music by Peg & Mike. The event starts at 5pm and is $7.00 if you eat, making this a fun fundraiser.

Dave will be hosting the cook your own steak dinner tonight–which is always a good deal if you are so inclined.

I’ve been avoiding lighting my pilots to the heaters but have been enjoying a roaring fire almost every day due to the temperature dip and the fact that my cabin remains fairly cool.

If you are prepping for winter make sure you check out my former posts on winterizing your cabin, winterizing your boat, and winter skin care tips.

I promised to post a couple of ideas for Ghoul-ade and wanted to mention that you can create some great ice decor by using food coloring in the ice cube tray and by adding a plastic spider or something inside of them.

Another great idea is to get a pair of plastic gloves, fill with food colored water and then tie securely and freeze.

This keeps the ghoulade cool and also gives it that creepy feel for the holiday–especially if you use a black bowl or cauldron to serve it up!

Traditional Ghoulade
2 evelopes of lemon-lime or Kool-Aid
1 envelope of orange Kool-Aid & 1 envelope of grape Kool-Aid
2 cups sugar
1 quart (bottle) chilled Sprite, 7-UP, or ginger ale
3 quarts of cold water

Mix and let sit about an hour and serve up in your own creative way!

Sandra Dee’s Ghoulade
(Makes 2 Quarts and has mixed reviews on the taste–so let me know what you decide.)
2 (6-ounce) cans limeade, frozen concentrate, thawed
3 cups lemon-lime soda
3 1/2 cups green sports drink
Green food coloring

Pour over ice and serve in creative ways with whipped topping complete with plastic spiders or some other creepy crawlies.

Update 10-30-2010
Sunday, October 31, 2010 from 1-4pm there will be an open house and celebration of life in memory of Dean Fox. Hosted by Stan & Jan Krom it will take place at 39421 North Shore Drive (across the street from the Fox residence). For further information call Louise Fox at (909) 866-2227.

Finally, you might be wondering about those poll results–here they are. I didn’t hear from the people who wanted to sponsor–the email is news <at> fawnskinflyer.com if you are still inclined. Just click through to see the full sized image.
