Getting ready to go out, just finished writing out checks for bills to drop them in mailbox on the way.
After an hour's wait for dermatologist appt, met my cousin and we had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, then hiked over to the Container Store to browse. Completely different set up than I had expected, thought it was more of a factory bare minimum overhead place. Quite nice. And, I did check out through the sniff test, their wicker baskets - no smell.
Prowled the mall looking for some little thing for the littlest pumpkin, but at 4 mos, didn't find anything. All animals these days seem to have either ball eyes or felt embellishment that would go right in his mouth. Have a couple more days to look, pumpkin himself is already all set with his first "paint with water" book/brush, and some M&M's. Mailed my dozen Halloween cards yesterday as I went out.
Glad to hear you are feeling better, Winter. This time of year is when all the viruses seem to raise their ugly little heads. I've had vague symptoms myself, that seem to wear off as the day goes on, but then, my mother's belief was if you got around and got dressed, you felt better.
What's on the canning docket for today, Kargiver? I give you a lot of credit for all the repeated projects you take on. I understand why - to not put them up and instead let them go to waste - would be a waste. Still, I'm sure lots of days you would just like to take a jaunt into town, or a hike in the woods with Gracie.
Heard from GD that tomorrow after school works for her for our baking, so will check out the sprinkle supply to make sure there are plenty in the right colors. I think the last carousal I bought was all the Fall colors - I remember her asking why I had bought them so far ahead of time - - - tomorrow I can say, "See? This is why I picked them up when I saw them. They'd be hard to find now if I had waited."
Time to shower and dress and do a short list of places to hit this morning. Hope you are all OK and having a good morning.
