How was your weekend? How was Halloween? We had exactly one group (of about 5) come to the door (while we were having dinner). Two little kids and two bigger (teenager) kids and one dad. They all took some candy and that was it! We left the porch light on and the front door open for quite some time and then by 9 p.m. we shut off the light. I missed seeing more little kids dressed up.
My weekend was nice. I met up with Dee for coffee and knitting and chatting on Saturday morning. As always, that was so enjoyable. (What did I do before Dee and Steve moved up from Florida??) Despite interference by a certain someone (that would be Mabel), I managed to do a little stitching and a bit of knitting.
Progress is occuring on the 2nd sock. And...I managed to change the tablecloth to a fall-themed one. The picture above has so many good things: clean tablecloth, knitting, ginger-turmeric tea and one of my all time favorite bookmarks which my Dad had given to me at some point (it says, "The best man for the job is often a woman"). Also the white envelopes behind my tea are our mail-in ballots for the election. We will be dropping them off today at one of the local collection points.
Yesterday was filled with laundry and grocery shopping. Yikes! Is it me or have prices sky-rocketed? Fletch and I went to one store and dropped $287. Later I went to two other stores trying to locate a few things we couldn't find at the first. Those two stores were another $60. There are only two of us! I did need to re-stock a few things (soups, canned beans, cat food - of course), and even though I had made breakfast, I guess I was hungry when we shopped because I bought more snack-type things than usual. But still!! We also had not shopped the previous weekend...but still...
This little one continues to amuse and delight us.
Thankfully she is quiet all night (and I am keeping the bedroom door shut), but once I am up in the morning, she is flying around - sliding on the hardwood floors, crashing into things, spooking herself out, etc. Yesterday she was prancing in the kitchen in front of the sliding door to the patio. She kept arching her back (just like a good Halloween cat) and then I realized it was still dark out and she was reacting to her reflection in the glass. LOL
Today holds a conference call for me at 10, then Fletch and I will drive to the 4-H center where we can drop off our ballots. A stop at the library is in order as I received notication that a book I requested is in. I have a pile more laundry waiting to be done and I'm hoping for sunny weather so that I can at least hang out the jeans to dry. Not too exciting, but we will see what the day holds. Happy November!
