I can just picture Palmer!!! Please let us know how the ketchup turns out. It really does sound interesting. Recipe?

The library only had the large print edition - so much easier to read! Not much else is going on here - just did a lot of chores when I wasn't reading or being harassed by Palmer . My tomatoes are starting to ripen - finally! The apples, peaches and pears will be ready in a week or so - I will be so busy in the next weeks with canning and prepping for freezing. Grapes will be ready early next month - there are more this year than any year I can recall! I don't have the set-up to make wine so I am going to make grape ketchup - a recipe I found in an older cookbook. Sounds interesting!

Goodnight and MERRY dreams!!!

When I started taking the extra B-12, I started feel LOTS better after abut 2-3 days. Now, I am pretty sure I will have to get the B-12 shots because the pills don't seem to be doing as well as at the beginning.

Oh, WOW, I love that countdown calendar. Where did you get it? And, yes, the Lear is fueled and ready for action. I am positive I will be making a landing in Indy for our buddy!!!

Hope I make good time & don't get lost! LOL.

Seawaters, do you want to meet me for some dinner? I know you know some good places!! How about you pick up some of our MMC friends on the Lear?! Who is in?

I ordered a Halloween Countdown over the weekend! It looks like this:

Attachment 2010

Spooky fun!! ����

I also programmed the hands free link in my car to my new cell phone number!! I am so proud of myself, mostly because I'm not a techie.. I just watched a YouTube video and figured it out. It makes me feel so much better, since I'll be traveling a lot in the future.

Anyways, hope you're all having a nice ending to a beautiful weekend!!

Sweet dreams & goodnight!!

((Hugs))

I love the Halloween Countdown! I stopped in Michaels and Homegoods today while I was out, just to browse. It's so exciting to see all of the Halloween and Fall decor!
Have a safe trip tomorrow and count me in for dinner!
Have a good night Snowflake
