Happy Halloween! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Don’t eat too much candy tonight kids 🎃

“When the spooks have a midnight jamboree/They break it up with fiendish glee/The ghosts are bad but the one that’s cursed/Is the headless horseman; he’s the worst/That’s right, he’s a fright on Halloween night! When he goes a joggin’ ‘cross the land/Holding his noggin in his hand/Demons take one look and groan/And they hit the road to parts unknown/Beware, take care he rides alone!”

~ The Headless Horseman, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.

Happy Halloween! 🎃

Happy Halloween!

The Daily Grind Affects Us All!

Back by popular demand… A day in the life of MIKE! 

They tell me that most of us get more conservative as we get older. It makes sense, we get married, have kids, we earn more $$ and have more to conserve! We also set up routines that we follow throughout our daily lives  – exercise, eating, checking email, etc.. So I got to wondering if everyone across all boundaries followed suit?

Check this out! – A day in the life of Mike…

Mike likes his morning brew! You wouldn’t believe how cranky he gets if he ain’t had his Java!!’

You know how it is, coffee gets you started, then you gotta get ready for the day!

The old “morning constitutional” – With all the daily chores ahead – this is a great time to do a little multitasking & check my email & texts!

If I don’t stretch and exercise, my whole day is off…

Believe me folks, the “middle age spread” is REAL! Gotta eat right and do my crunches!

This time of the year with school & church festivities, there is always something to contribute 🎃

Guess who drew “bake sale” at the school fundraiser… Red Velvet Cake is the perfect choice!

It’s hard to catch a minute to just… Relax

Mike needs a little “Me time” every now and again – nothing better than kicking off my shoes 👠 and enjoying a good show and a cold drink!

You might even think the monotonous life we all leed has tamed & subdued Mike to the point that Murder is just off the menu… ?

Oh well… You know it’s hard for a leopard to change his spots 🎃

Happy Halloween 🎃 👻

1 Dozen Days To Go! Have YOU Carved A Jack-O-Lantern Yet? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We are 12 days away from Halloween 🎃 We LOVE to carve pumpkins 🎃 in our house! In fact, we will carve at least 1 Jack-O-Lantern every day from now to ‘All Hallows Eve’… Think “12 days of Halloween” 👻

Here are a few of my favorites. Some are ours, some were done by others & some are just  deco Jack-O-Lanterns that we display every year. To me, they just set the mood for the season 😊

Get as creative as you want! Pumpkin carving is good for the soul!😊 This was carved by a very creative young lady at our recent Fall Fest! 

Have some fun this weekend and carve a Pumpkin 🎃 ‘Tis’ The Season!
