Happy Halloween everyone! We just got back to Utah yesterday morning from Oregon and I want to thank everyone for your prayers and well wishes these last 2 weeks! It means a lot to me and has helped more than yall will ever know. I will try to catch up here this week as I am still on leave until Monday! I returned to Utah with all the leaves on the ground and no more color. It was so nice while it lasted, but I guess we are in the period I like to refer to as nuclear winter. Where all the leaves have fallen but there is no snow yet. I don't think it snowed any while we were gone so we are closing out October without any snow yet.
Last but not least congrats to any Boston fans out here. I know we have a few! I did not catch any of the world series this year but I read it was very moving when they won since it had been a very trying year since the Bombing there.
I hope everyone has a great and safe night tonight if you are taking the little ones out and I hope the weather cooperates! Here it is cold but sunny and dry! Lows in low 30's and highs in low 50's. I think rain is coming this weekend with colder temps to follow. I will try to get back to everyone who wrote to me this last 2 weeks thanks so much again! Have a great day!

She going as Wilma Flintstone, since she already has the red hair. She bought material at Hobby Lobby and, utilizing the sewing skills my mom taught her, she sewed Wilma's dress, and it looks Yabba Dabba Doo! She also bought a small neckchain and some large beads to make Wilma's stone necklace. She's so creative!

I hope y'all have a SPOOKY day!
Elizabeth's costume sounds awesome, have fun today!

Not much going on here again, today. I may get out in the kitchen and make some cupcakes for the cake walk at the girl scout fall festival this weekend. Other than that, just I'll just be sitting around resting my foot. I hope everyone is having a GREAT HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!
Have fun baking Made and Happy Halloween!

Accuweather has the area under a high wind advisory - scary stuff when we get a lot of rain as a lot of trees fall. Be safe, Christmasstar, and dry, too!!
We have the same weather coming our way. Hope you have a Happy Halloween Meceka!

I wasn't able to log on all morning, until now.

It is a hauntingly beautiful morning, here. Rainy, FOGGY, dark. So fitting!!

I have the day off. And there's lots of errands to run, starting with grocery shopping! I must be back in time for the cute little trick-or-treaters!!

Hope you all have a fun & spooky day!!
I was having problems with the site this morning too. I hope you are having a fun and Happy Halloween Snowflake!!!

I love watching them too, they're so cute!

They didn't know anything about any installation---they were only delivery guys. We called up to find out what was going on, and got bounced to another number, and another, and another---we spoke with five different offices, and they all swore that we never ordered or paid for installation, in spite of the receipt we were looking at.

Long story short, the guy who rang up the sale when we bought the cooktop did it wrong and didn't enter the installation properly. So now we have a boxed cooktop (which may be damaged due to the delivery guys' rough handling---but they told us not to worry, the merchant would have to replace it if it's broken...!) monopolizing our kitchen floor until an undetermined time window on Saturday, when it will finally be installed (for a few hundred dollars more, of course). Arghhhhh ... We WILL be visiting the local store and speaking to a manger about a certain sales associate who badly needs remedial training.
How annoying, I hope the installation goes quickly and smoothly!

So, I was able to get in under Merry Christmas TV and get an email off to Jeff and then I was also able to get in contact George Broderick and I sent him a personal email -----S.O.S. So all's well that ends well, I'm back , up and running! I missed you guys~
Welcome back xmastidings!!!

Still in the glow of the Sox win last night.

There is rain in the forecast for trick or treating, we will still head out but with an umbrella.

I hope you all have a great Thursday.
Have fun trick or treating xmas!!!

I am so embarrassed lol. I took a sample in the store and the employee asked me if I had a parent around. She said she needed permission to give me the sample since I was under the age of 18. Then I had to explain to her that I was well over 18 and she just stared at me while some guy kept laughing. Awkward!!!
