I'm sitting down, just finished pressing out clothes to wear, and the gingerbread boys have their "1"s and are air drying (I hope), before putting them on the tray for delivery.
Had a wonderful day at P'town, when we got there around 11:30, it was socked in with fog from the time we hit Truro. In a couple of hours the sun had broken through and it was a beautiful day. No fog horns, drove down to the Point, but not a one could be heard. I told the boys if they could hear it while we were walking in downtown area, to let me know, but they couldn't hear any either. Had lunch at the Crown and Anchor, did all the shops except the galleries at the top of Commercial Street. Found a book for oldest son in an old used book store that's right across from where we had lunch - remember it being there even when G.T. lived in Town. Got Cheerio a couple of toys from Friends of Heart, fudge and Halloween candy at the Penney Candy. No other purchases that I can think of off hand. Did see a couple of TShirts I would have liked to get for someone, but can't do one and not another. Also a doormat which was the perfect one for oldest, but it was about $10 over my comfort zone.
Icer glad you had a chance to do some thinking about your future. Hope you can make a comfortable decision.
Kargiver, I know all too well what you mean about hating certain kinds of changes. We (I) always second guess myself when I've made one.
Oh, the drive home. Well, we stopped by the winery in Truro - the grapes were hanging from the vines, btw, and left there about 4:30. It usually takes 2 1/2 hours to get home - we pulled into my driveway at 7:45! Bumper to bumper, both north and south. G.T.'s partner is so good driving, such a patient guy when it comes to getting stuck in backups like that. Me and G.T. not so much.
Talked with DIL last night when I got home and again this morning. She had more reconstructive surgery related to her breast cancer. 2 1/2 hours, this was cosmetic, but something that was really bothering her, and after all she's been through, I say go for it. They won't be at pumpkin's party today, still a little nauseous, and remains of a headache and of course bruised and feeling like she had been run over by a steamroller. She said my son is taking good care of her with "Nana"'s chicken soup he had in freezer.
Guess that's all the catchup. Looking forward to this afternoon. Have a good week-end all.
