How was Halloween for everyone? We noticed a marked difference in the amount of kids we saw but honestly, there was also a palpable need for normalcy so we handed out candy, safely, and not anywhere near as much as we normally do but 2020 is a bust and whatever we can do to make things somewhat enjoyable, without jeopardizing people’s health, we will do with the best intentions.
But guys, it’s time!! Election Day is almost here and I am ready for it. On election night, I may watch through spread hands, and chew every nail off my fingers but please God, please… let 2020 end well.
I would really like to go out for a good breakfast. The Girl sleeps in so probably won’t happen. Plus, the time change!
Later, a Zoom meeting with my youth group. Zoom fatigue is a thing. They spend hours on Zoom for school but we don’t have many options. The church is trying to stagger groups so that we can meet in person but meeting outside is not great as it’s chilly at night now.
This week is all about the election because I can’t imagine us knowing anything until days later. I want to make a really good meal Tuesday night, mostly for distraction but hey, food is comforting and I know it shouldn’t be but I will take comfort where I can get it. Chinese food sounds really good at the moment but cooking it can be time consuming. Maybe takeout? Will probably be busy that night.
I reviewed Don’t Look For Me and One By One last week. My reviews of Invisible Girl and Leave the World Behind post this week. I am finishing the last few pages of You Can’t Catch Me by Catherine McKenzie and then may dive into one of my review copies, The Sprawl by Jason Diamond and I am still working on that King book, Lisey’s Story.
The Haunting of Bly Manor has been pretty good.
- The sun. Not the blazing summer sun but the sun that’s been showing its face these past few days. It feel so good on the skin.
- Succulents. I went to a new succulent nursery the other day and picked up two new plants for my garden. Some of those plants were $300 but my $15 plants are cute too.
- Days off. I took last Friday off so my weekend was extended by a little bit. I cleaned the patio furniture, planted my new plants, read TWO books. It was glorious.
Okay everyone, tell me how you are spending Election Night. Watching? Not watching? Will there be food? Drink? Give me the details. I would like to enjoy a stiff cocktail while watching.
