Good morning, MMC! I guess I should say good afternoon because it is almost noon here.

Today is going to be a relaxing Sunday for the most part. My team plays at 4 PM so I am looking forward to watching the game. The season has been disappointing so far, but we won the last couple of games so I am hoping that we're making a comeback. I have to write a 30-50 page paper that is due tomorrow evening, I didn't even start yet! I am very experienced at writing papers by now, though, so I think I could have it done within a couple of hours.

I cannot believe that Halloween is this week. We are getting so close to Christmas and the season - I love it! How many Trick or Treaters do you guys usually get at your house? Depending on the weather, we have anywhere from 95-135. I usually try to sit on the porch to pass out the candy, but if it is too cold I am staying in and I will let them knock.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! I will check back in soon!

Good morning, PoloPlayr! It is nice to see you! That sounds like a perfect morning. Enjoy your shopping tomorrow!



Good morning, Track! You're on a roll this morning! Then you will be able to relax and unwind this evening.



I cannot believe Christmas is fast approaching - I am so excited! I bet you're excited for tomorrow! You will be in my prayers for a successful interview tomorrow. Good luck!



That sounds like a pretty sight! I love seeing the leaves in the autumn. Have a great day!



Good morning, Snowflake! I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! What a pretty image you shared!



Good afternoon to you, Solice! Aww I'm sorry that you are so tired! You are really on a roll with the gifts! I love baked bread - that sounds delicious. Aw, I'm sorry that your daughter is so nauseous from her medication. I will pray that she feels better! Have a wonderful Sunday!



Good morning, HMG! I hope that you find something that you are comfortable driving. Don't rush the process - everything will fall into place as it should! Dinner sounds delicious - I love everything that you mentioned! I hope you have a great day!



Great countdown, CS! Costume? Nope. Candy? Oh yeah! And for the record...I'm ready! Bring on Christmas!



Good morning, Ryan! Aw, I'm sorry that it rained last night. That always happens for all of the fun events. I hope you enjoy your upcoming week!



Yay! It's a shame that I missed it, it's one of my faves!



Good morning, Coach! IT sounds like a wonderful and relaxing morning. I hope that you're able to take a nap at some point to catch up on sleep. Have a great day!



Good morning, Made! I hope those strong storms never make it your way. Hope you enjoy watching football and racing! My team plays later this afternoon!



Xmas, I hope that you have a much better day today than you did yesterday!



Good morning, Merry! I completely agree with what you said. By the time the "season" is really here, it seems as if there is not much time to enjoy it. I wish that the season was about 4 months long...then I'd feel as if I had enough time to celebrate! Halloween sounds like a lot of fun at the office! I love to see kids dressed up in their costumes. Enjoy your day!
Thank you, Jennifer!!

This will be the first year at the home we are in now, and I anticipate quite a few trick-or-treaters. A co-worker lives a mile away, and they see well over 300 🎃

I sent Adrian out for more candy! We may have leftovers, but that's ok too lol

It'll be nice, because we never saw many in Las Vegas.

Hope you guys have nice weather!!

I'm excited to hand out candy!

Hope you have a wonderful day, too!!



xx

It's the Sunday before Halloween ... just over two weeks before the Season begins ... up to my elbows in playlists for Kringle Radio ... time is speeding by already! It's exhilarating and frightening at the same time. There never seems to be quite enough time to savor all the sweetness of the Season while it's here.

Many of the employees at my office have young children, so on Halloween afternoon the office is holding a costume parade and desk-to-desk trick-or-treat for the kiddies. It should be a lot of fun seeing the costumes and handing out candy! I'll be handing out candy here at home, too, that evening, but we usually don't get many doorbells.
I am a little apprehensive about Halloween this year due to the fact that since we moved to our house 14 years ago, we have always decorated our house (big time) on the outside as well as the inside. Since we had our home previously up for sale at the end of June thru end of September, I packed all the outside Halloween decoration up and placed them in storage.

So, I'm expecting to be asked over and over again, "what's going on", "where's your decorations", why are you moving", etc, etc, etc... Especially since our home will be re-listed on Halloween Day with the new sign going up...

Usually, we go thru about anywhere's from 25-30 pounds of candy each year, so we'll just have to wait and see if there will be less Trick-or-Treaters since there will be no decorations outside...

While listening to Christmas radio in my kitchen!

My daughter started taking meds (chemotherapy) this weekend
because of her arthritis...
She's feeling nauseous, but other than that she's fine
Im so proud of her!

Well, I have to go back to my chores...
I'll be back later this evening!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
I love doing the advent calendar stuff! I am way behind with that. Going to Bronners next Saturday and plan to pick up a bunch of stuff then.
I pray that your daughter does well on the drugs and that she will not have more bad side effects.

Everyone talking about handing out candy. I'm going to miss that this year. I'm going to stay home instead of going to my sisters to hand it out there while she takes my niece's around. That way I'm off my foot. We never get any here in my apartments.
