Hi Everybody -
Happy Sunday. I went out to eat Sat. night and asked for decaf. I know I got regular coffee because I'm wide awake and show no signs of slowing down to sleep. Spent a busy day doing errands. I'm still pretty busy at the office and have no time for anything during the week. My boss is spending all of his time in NY because his father (the man who hired me) is not well. We're all very worried. So, that means I'm working full time for the foreseeable future.
Managed to get to Mahoney's today and bought about 200 bulbs to plant. I'm going to experiment this year and plant some in big containers which I'll leave outside during the winter. Hopefully, I'll have big containers of daffodils and tulips come spring. I've had the most beautiful morning glories this summer and continue to be amazed at how prolific they are. Such a joy to see them in the morning. Also bought mums and ornamental cabbages. I don't really put up a lot of Halloween decorations. Mostly a general fall theme around here. Wreaths on the doors, etc... I do have a big lighted pumpkin I put up in my attic window a couple weeks before Halloween. Looks a bit eerie from the street. The pumpkin will be replaced by Santa at Christmas.
bg, if I lived in the north end, I'd be on Hanover St. every night eating pastries and drinking espresso. I'd be big as a whale and not able to go to sleep!
tt, love the pictures of the Halloween cookies. Guess you made good use of your cookie cutters. Nice that the young ones came to see you. My GD's have been coming about every other week to visit with my friend next door. We've had a couple of sessions in the kitchen, which started while they were living here. I really enjoy it.
Congrats icer! No greater joy than a grandchild to love and spoil.
ss, read the posts about your sister and hope you found some shakers at the church fair.
pingo, have a nice visit with your son. Nice that he'll be around for awhile. I'm sure you'll be busy in the kitchen.
kar, glad you found a cheaper way out for Gracie. I just took my male cat to the vet and by the time I was through, it was almost $500.00. Maybe I should get insurance.
Hope you all enjoy your Sunday. I'm going to visit a friend who just had her knees replaced. Her caretaker needs the afternoon off, so I'll substitute. Take care everybody.
