I’m just stopping by to share my tracker and what I’ve been up to today!
So far, I am keeping up with my habits. Yay! Every time I check one off, I know I am one step closer to my goals!
Today started out very slow motion. Breakfast, reading, a load of laundry, reading, lunch, reading, LOL, then we went to the movies!! We saw Wakanda Forver. Now I’m home about to watch a Hallmark movie 📽 🎄😌!
How did your week go? Are you working on any habits or goals? How did your Saturday go? Anything exciting going on this weekend?
For our last Spooky Saturday of Blogtober, we will talk about the Winchester House……..
The Winchester House: There are lots of stories surrounding this house that can never be completed. Sarah Winhester, heir to Winchester firearms, bought this large house and began renovations immediately. Legand has it that work continued 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and only stopped after her death. The reasons she insisted on this continuous work being done on the house differ. The most popular store is that the ghost of people killed by a Winchester firearm would show up and need somewhere to live, so she was building them rooms.
In the early 1900s, Robert the Doll was made by a servant and gifted to Eugene Otto. Eugene and the doll were initially inseprable and said to have a freinship that would last a lifetime. It wasn’t long before things got strange, and it was thought the doll was cursed with Vodoo by the servant who made it.
The parents were awakened one night to Eugene screaming and the sounds of furniture moving, only to find the boy curled up on his bed and Robert sitting at his feet. On other occasions, they would pass the boys’ room and hear him talk to the doll and hear the doll respond in a different voice. They soon locked the doll in the attic but would see him in the window of the upstairs bedroom.
After Eugeen passed away, the new owners of the house had a 10-year-old child who was excited to find Robert. Unfortunately, Roberts reign of terror continued. Robert The Doll now lives in a glass case at East Martello Museum.
Are you familar with this story? We watched the Child’s Play movies growing up, but I never knew they were inspired by this story? Now I want to visit the museum, how about you?
