What a couple of weeks.

It doesn't feel like it's been that long, but I guess it has. Being both sick and busy can certainly mess with your sense of time. A major holiday even passed, I've been told. The above illustration was taken from a rather cool site called "Historical Anatomies on the Web". A place with images both cool and gruesome, especially if you realize that much of it was drawn while looking at actual cadavers in stuffy rooms and possibly against the law of the time.

Speaking of cadavers, I just tossed out the kids' pumpkins this morning. They weren't quite rotten, but they were well on their way. Here are a couple of photos of them "in their prime" (all photos are clickable):

We had a lot of fun carving them, although we had to rush a bit at the end.

And here they are lit:

AND, I may as well turn this into a photo-post since I also finally have the pictures of my knees that Heather took after I messed them up by falling off the ramp of my U-Haul back when we were moving:

They looked a LOT worse in person. I'm actually disappointed at how the first one came out. It just looks like a wee boo-boo – although it also wasn't the knee that took the most weight on impact.

And finally I share with you my daughter; rock icon:

Believe it or not, she wasn't imitating cover art on purpose. She was just being her normal, goofy self when Heather snapped the photo. When I saw it, the Wall was the first thing to spring to mind.

As of now there isn't a ghost #5. I will make one and post it when I can, as well as resume playing along with Illustration Friday. Hopefully by next week.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Your knee did look a lot worse! The pics don't do it justice.

I love that picture of Jordyn - even though it is Pink Floyd-ish.

Can't be there until Monday to tell you I love the pic of your daughter. So cool, it does look like Thw Wall poster.
Well a boo-boo is still a boo-boo.

The pumpkins look great! I wanted to do one this year but didn't get to.. :( My cats probably would have eaten it anyway... lol.

Ouch @ your knees! Looks like mine did after I fell walking up the stairs last year.

Can you update my link for Tragic/Beautiful? It's now http://www.tragicbeautiful.com/words/ I hopped off the blogger wagon and moved into WordPress and didn't want to overwrite all of my stuff in case of emergency.
