Happy Halloween! – We are at a new house. We have no idea if kids come through our neighborhood for trick or treat. Most of the people here are older as it’s a place where people move to downsize. No young kids live in the ‘hood. You never know though. Because the houses are close together they may come from the development up the road. In any case, the Grinch and I will turn out our lights and watch a movie. I did not buy candy to get stuck with it.
So what do you do? – I have a friend who only buys candy she doesn’t like so she’s not tempted. I tried that once and had a lot left over. I was working so I took it in for the staff. I’m retired. I don’t have an outlet to get rid of stuff I don’t like. What do you do?
Booster day! – We are getting our booster covid vaccine today. I’ve cleared my day so I can take it easy in case I get any side effects. I didn’t get any for the first one and just tired and draggy for the second. We are cautious but the vaccines have given us a level of comfort as we go about doing the things we have to do. I can’t assume the people I come in contact with are vaccinated.
Slam bang! – Almost overnight our trees have dropped leaves. The trees by the serenity walk past the creek have lost 75% of their leaves. It’s a very different but beautiful look. Makes you want to drink hot chocolate in front of a fire. I love the seasons although I can guarantee I will whine about the long cold winter in a few months.
Speaking of winter – We haven’t yet received a start date for our kitchen renovation. With a six week time line we will most likely be under construction for the holidays. I didn’t do anything for Halloween because I was hopeful (delusional) we’d be underway by now. Not even a pumpkin resides in our house. Now I’m wondering what we should do for Christmas. Depending on how they access the house, putting things on the front porch will only get in the way or maybe even damaged. It’s truly a lost year. I wish contractors would communicate better.
So how was your week?
