Home Is Where the Haunt Is

In dim, dark ages past, I have taken great delight in decorating the house on holidays, particularly Halloween, but in more recent years, I haven't managed to get particularly motivated in that regard. This year, I decided to do a little something about it, as last night, Ms. Brugger and I hosted our monthly supper club dinner with several fine couples of our acquaintance. It was only fitting to make our guests as uneasy as possible, so in addition to the year-round scares lurking here and there about the domicile, I added a handful of grim little extras. Not an extravagant decorating job by any stretch — not like many of the impressive and certainly expensive home overhauls I see here and there — just a handful of mood-setters. I rather like the effect after dark, shown in the quick video below.

Earlier last week, Ms. B. and I watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, so it's now officially permissible for Halloween to come on Friday. We have plans; I'm trying formulate a believable alibi. Quite looking forward to it this year.
