Had fun decorating the pumpkins.
In spite of our nice weather, (seriously, no snow on the ground) we had less trick or treaters than in years past. At least this year we were a little smarter and bought candy that I'm not so apt to eat--skittles, starburst and red licorice ; )
But now it's time to start thinking about decorating for Christmas--the big question is do I start before I leave for Ottawa or do I wait until I come home??? I keep worrying because I come home right before Thanksgiving, but then I have to remember Thanksgiving is early this year. I so wish I could have found a cheap ticket to go to California for Thanksgiving to be with the gang that is going to gather there ; (
I did enjoy watching the Giants win the World Series--well, I didn't see the last game, but I sure enjoyed the others. Like I said three years ago when they won last time, the only thing that would have made it better would have been if my dad was watching it with me ; )
I continue to enjoy my 365 project. It's been fun and I've captured some fun shots. It is hard to come up with a shot every day, but as of today I am 62% complete.
Awhile ago, I went to the zoo, and I loved seeing this red panda--isn't he cute.
I so wanted to a THANKFUL POST to remind me to stay grateful, but EVERY DAY just seemed a little too much right now.
So whenever I do a post between now and the end of November, I'll add things I'm thankful for, based on the date. Since this is November 3rd, I'll list three things that I am grateful for:
1) We get to turn the clock back: Yes, I look forward to that extra hour sleep, but I am really looking forward to it being lighter earlier in the morning. Oh, I understand it will be darker earlier, too, but it has been so hard for me to get out of bed.
2) Lovely weather: Yeah, it is a little cold, but I haven't had to worry about driving in the snow, YET. Had a little dusting this morning, but nothing that should cause any worries.
3) Telephones: For whatever reason, I have really been missing my family lately. I am so grateful for the phone so I can hear their voices. We really should skype more often.
SIDENOTE: My heart goes out to those who are struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
