Morning y'all. Glad to see Grandma made it by to check on Blue.
Hope everybody survived Sandy's visit without any major problems. We are doing good here in central Arkansas, enjoying mid 60's, clear blue skies.
I have a couple family members who had some Sandy related problems, an aunt in Cleveland was powerless for a while. I also have an independent, rascal of an uncle (he's 92), on the coast who refuses to allow my cousins to take him home with them, who is cooking in the back yard and wearing several quilts to keep warm. Yep, gotta love him.
Had a ton of kids here last night. I bought mini bags of pretzels to give out. Upon opening the door to one group, I heard "Wow! This is where they got them!"
So I guess I made a good choice! I was concerned I'd have chocolate left sitting around the house, and since I'm really working to keep my sugar down, that wasn't a workable option for us. Won't have to worry tho, ran out of the pretzels. Last year we had maybe 5 kids, quite a difference.
We had walked down the street to the watch the kids earlier doing "Boo on the Hill" where our local merchants participate in giving out candy. Must have been a couple hundred kids there. It was fun seeing all the costumes. A lot of the adults were "dressed" as well. One mom and toddler wore matching pink tutus. Very cute on the little one, not so much on the other. Looked more like she was trying out for the dancing hippo spot in Fantasia. Which is exactly what I would have looked like had I attempted to wear such an outfit. I'm not sure I would have ever left my bedroom wearing that, but maybe she didn't have a full length mirror?
Ah well, Happy November y'all, enjoy it!
