Random Thoughts



  1. Happy November. :)
  2. I ordered the Thanksgiving turkey today.
  3. Counter tops were installed this morning.  They look wonderful! Photos to come later.
  4. We're getting snow this weekend!  Flurries, 1 inch, 3 inches...it all depends on what forecast you read. ha. Three more plants to bring inside tonight!
  5. The Mister took the day off, so it feels like Saturday to me.  I'll be confused all weekend now!
  6. We had the least number of trick-or-treaters ever last night!  The neighborhood has grown up.  I have candy left over!  Is that good or bad?  I haven't had a single piece today, though. ha.

  2. Beautiful photo... send some candy to me! On second thought... don't! :-) Maybe the tricksters heard about your gargoyle and decided to give you wide berth! Hee hee.

  4. I didn't get any trick or treaters this year because I put a notice on my door saying "Beware! A dangerous fire-breathing Dragon lives here! And she's not happy today."

    Or maybe it's like your place Betsy, the kids here have all grown up and are probably in the pub.

    2. Best one ever was "Trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again."

  5. What a pretty blue sky!
    Can't wait to see the counter tops - bet it feels great to have them installed.
    No trick or treaters for us tonight. It's nasty weather, snow, rain and wind so that doesn't help!

  7. I am excited to see your counter tops. We did not have trick or treaters either. No snow for us but it is colder here in GA.
    I don't know how you could go all day and not have a piece of candy!

  8. It's Halloween night as I type this in CA. Don't know if I will have any Trick or Treaters or not...but I have a few goodie bags ready. If they don't come...that's what I'll be snacking on tomorrow. BTW Lovely lovely picture. Can't wait to see your counter tops, and love your new profile words. You ARE wonder woman!!! Hugs

  9. Beautiful photo! It looks so much like the view from the side of our house.
    So glad your counters are in. Can't wait up see them.
    We had five trick or treaters. That's a lot for us. We haven't had any in past years. But they have built more houses here and there are more kids now.
    We had snow flurries today. Can't remember snow on Halloween before.

  11. Do the kids Trick or Treat on the 30th in Ohio? Our neighborhood has grown up too, and we only had about 60 kids last year. There have always been around 300. This year I got smart (or maybe dumb!) and bought some Reeses and Almond Joy, which are my favorites. There is a call for rain tonight, so that may keep some of the kids away.

    1. It usually is on the 30th but it depends on the day of the week. We don't do it on the weekends and it never interferes with Friday night high school football. Ha. The date varies from county to county and is announced each year.

      I didn't hand out any almond joys....ate all of those myself! Ha.

    2. What? Hallowe'en is October 31. Period. How strange to move it around. Not up here!

  12. We had 40 kids on the door tonight. For a few years it went very quiet, the little kids grew up and now looks like the toddlers have turned into little kids :)

    2. Yes Celcius. We are trying to wean ourselves off Farhenheit but it's taking a long long time. Sorry to red about your headache. I take it you don't get very many?
