We had a beautiful Saturday. We spent some if it in the small town of Ojai and then went to the beach on a whim. The view. Absolutely gorgeous. This was taken without filters right before dusk. The rain was on its way and it was a mild 70 degrees.
After our lovely day, we had a rough night. The Otter Pup was not feeling well. She barfed on my phone, got spooked by a balloon in the backyard but we didn’t know this at the time and then right after my son got home at 3 a.m. from work, someone threw a pumpkin through my neighbor’s rear car window and completely destroyed it. It was about to rain so my son and the Hub helped to cover it up but can you believe that?
So…we had no sleep. Who could sleep after that?
It’s late. I seriously did not have time to post this until now so I am in my room trying to get this posted.
We had church this morning and then went to my MIL’s house for lunch and a little football. Then, The Teen and I left for the middle-school ministry’s Halloween party. I have so much fun with those students.
My neighborhood gets into Halloween so even though it’s a school night, I’m sure we’ll have lots of trick-or-treaters. We’ve had rain off and off for the past few days so if it rains that might affect how things go. Maybe.
Halloween is a work day for us too so we’ll be fighting traffic to get home. I hand the candy out with The Otter Pup and then The Hub usually follows The Teen and her friend around while they go from house to house.
Thursday is book club but my church is having a worship experience so I may attend that instead. Haven’t decided yet.
I am almost done with Summer of Night by Dan Simmons. I am supposed to be reading a book about witches for book club. Even though it’s certainly the right time of year for it, I haven’t started it yet and we meet this Thursday.
I am still watching The Walking Dead although last week’s premiere really upset me. I know viewers always say “if so and so goes, we riot” but seriously, that is how I feel right now! But yeah, I’ll still be watching tonight.
American Horror Story has gone off the rails. It’s bloody and messy and funny at the same time. Where are they going with this story?
Not a thing. Haha. For Halloween, we will make Trader Joe’s pizzas and eat little snacks here and there.
That beach day we had. I really needed it.
I have to catch up on all your posts from this weekend but I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you all have a great Halloween!
