Halloween Pink Saturday

It's time for Pink Saturday fun and I'm dispensing with pink -- cannot find any pink anywhere -- and I'm going with the alternate seasonal theme.

Halloween decorations have really caught on in New York City and I was delighted to find this beautiful display on West 84th Street. If there were nominations for the best Halloween decor, this would be my choice. The steam coming out of the ground floor was the special touch. I was not the only person taking pictures here on Thursday afternoon.


This is the Marathon weekend. Of course my first thought is prayers for safety for tomorrow and my second thought is a shout-out for my friend, Elana, who is running her first Marathon. Elana was set to run last year, but the race was cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy. She kept up her training and she will be running in this year's race. I am always in awe of marathon runners, but Elana completely awes me. She is fifty plus and started significant exercise only a few years ago. She has been dedicated to her training and I am happy to dedicate this post to her. Congratulations and good wishes for a great run!

It was summer here again today -- wore capris and a sweater -- but tomorrow promises to be more seasonal. My plans are a haircut and a giveaway here in Buttercupland. It's a fun giveaway for a great cause and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself.

Hard to believe that Halloween has come and gone already. Nice you have been enjoying good weather there. It's been raining and chilly here. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Summer has left us here in the Midwest. We are quite seasonal here.

Hope your friend had a good run!
