It finally feels like fall!! It was a crisp 48 degrees when I got in the car this morning. It’s been a little windy though which is never good when everything is so dry. The Pup and I have not been able to take our walks due to my knee injuries but they are improving every day so maybe a short walk would be okay this weekend. This is how she looks when she is trying to guilt me into taking her.
Guys, my reading has been going well!!! I need to review My Name is Lucy Barton, One of the Girls, and The IT Girl. I can hopefully get those written up this week.
Can you believe that Halloween is on Monday? We bought our candy early and if we run out, we run out. The cost of candy is what is was last year, about $18 a bag. We got four which is two less than normal and I think this year will be epic with everything feeling very normal again but whatever we have, will have to be enough or we will shut it all down and eat chili. LOL.
Weekend plans. I think we might have breakfast in Old Town Pasadena and then head to my favorite bookstore on Saturday. If that happens, I need to make a list of books that I want to buy because I always go blank once I enter a bookstore. And, I have been known to buy a book twice. I haven’t read a classic in a really long time. Maybe I’ll pick up a classic.
Our trip to Missouri is coming up in a few weeks. We are excited about that. It’s confusing how they assigned understudies though. My daughter is a lead but she is the understudy for the other lead. I hope we can see her in her actual role. I’m trying to get her to get a booster and flu shot before then but it’s very hard to get adult children to take care of that stuff.
That’s all I have. I hope you are all doing well!

I hope your knees are all better soon, you’re probably wanting to go for your walks a lot too. I know I keep saying this but I LOVE The Pup’s little face! I bought my candy Wed. We don’t that may treaters so we’ll probably have a lot left over, but I’d rather have too much than run out. I’ve bought books twice too, I need to write a list. I hope your daughter catches up on her shots. I never take the flu shot. I’ve only had the flu once many many years ago and it wasn’t that bad. A few years ago my youngest son took it for the first time because we were going to NYC to see the Thanksgiving Parade and he got so sick! Have a good weekend!
I cannot wait to hear all about Emma’s performance. It’s going to be fantastic! I also can’t wait to see what books you grab from the bookstore. Have a great Halloween.
Glad your reading is going so well! I’ve only finished two books this month, mainly because I put one aside to read another. I also read about 300 pages of a book for book club, but wound up not being able to go. It was a re-read, so now I’m wondering if I should stop completely or finish the final 300 pages. Yep, a 600 page re-read!
No trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood, so we’ll attend the annual potluck. I’m making chili for that, too!
Enjoy your book shopping! I look forward to hearing what you get. I am so glad your reading is going well. And it’s always fun to have a trip to look forward to, especially to see your daughter.
My trip to the bookshop got cancelled. No book buying I’m enjoying Dinosaurs right now by Lydia Millet.
Yay Otter Pup. Hope your knee is healing well. I plan to fly into Palm Springs over Thanksgiving. Hope it’s not too hot. Looking forward to it. Have a great trip to Missouri.
Palm Springs in Nov can go either way. I’ve been there when it’s very warm but also when it’s unseasonably chilly.
