Pix-O-Da-Week: Halloween Edition

A couple of months ago I began new hobby: getting out of my head and into the real world. I accomplish this by taking pictures of things I find interesting with my smart phone. Here is what I found this last week (give or take a few days):

Thrift Store Find:

I'm off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!

Dollar Store Decorations:

We do not discriminate in this house -- all are welcome!

I think this mummy is more scared of me than I am of it.


Halloween lights?! That must mean that somewhere out there are Thanksgiving lights, New Years lights, Valentine’s Day lights, etc.

Creepy-Yet-Beautiful Artwork:


Painting at my hair salon.



This little guy is hanging out on our front porch. I haven’t the heart to tell him he probably won’t succeed at scaring the trick-or-treaters.


My kids’ pumpkins. How cute are they?

  1. Love the vampy you in the pumpkin at the top!

    I experimented with bitstrips and came up with an avatar that looked just like me…they even had my asymmetrical pixie haircut to use! I don’t have a facebook account so I couldn’t save it though. It was pretty fun.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 5 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write primarily about my mental health journey (I have bipolar disorder), and I also discuss my deconversion, mindfulness, exercise, music, reading, and other cultural topics.
