Another Halloween in the books and this year. the kids were OUT! Didn’t matter that it was a school night. We had at least 300 trick or treaters. This is very close to our pre-pandemic numbers. It was so sweet to see families out and about again. Everyone was in good spirits. I made vegan chili and we tested out our new Solo Stove and had a little bonfire time. My friend came over and The Pup got to hang with us too.
If you look carefully at the pic above, you can see a tiny bit of fall color but that’s pretty much it. We have a few trees in my neighborhood that put on a show but only for a day or two. I’ve been enjoying the pics of Missouri as my daughter walks across campus.
A few weeks ago when I went to the doc for my knees, my blood pressure was extremely high. I mean, I was in a lot of pain and even the doc said it was to be expected but now I have to go for follow-ups because my family history is a perfect storm for a stroke and my doc is concerned. In my mind this is just one more thing but probably important. I just don’t do well with appointments these days. Truth be told, I’ve not been feeling great.
Weekend plans. None. We have the time change this weekend. Hope it’s the last. We voted to end it years ago and yet here we are again. I do not mind fall back but absolutely cannot deal with spring forward. It really messes me up!
My reading has been good and I want it to stay that way. I am very behind with my reading goal for the year. Dinosaurs by Lydia Millet is very good so far. I still need to write up a review this week for The IT Girl but then I will be caught up on reviews.
That’s all I have. Let me know how you are doing!
