Happy Halloween

funny-halloween-cartoon-schmidt-house-candyIt’s grey and cool out there but at least the rain has stopped for now.  There should be a nice crowd circulating around the neighborhood tonight.  There almost always is.  We have lotsa kids running around here.

The gummys are taking an afternoon nap and after that we’ll carve a pumpkin to make a jack o’lantern.  Maybe it’s just me and maybe I’m a bit weird but I like how a carved pumpkin looks and how it smells when a candle heats it up.  Like I said, maybe I’m weird.

Friday Musings

IMG_0010-XLI love Halloween.  It has such great candy associated with it.  We’re just not gonna tell my dentist that I’m chewing on some Milk Duds.  That would go over like a lead balloon with her.

Minnesota.  Don’t like the weather?  Just wait a while and it will change.  It did.  Ugh!  We were supposed to have sun today and thru the weekend.  It’s cold and grey instead.

Boogie won’t be around tomorrow night to watch “Nosferatu” with me.  I so hate seeing traditions end.  I’ll sit in the dark with my hot buttered popcorn and watch it all by my onesy.  The plus up is I’ll be out and about tomorrow night with my gummys as they plunder and get loot.

I wish the sun would come out soon so the gummys can go swishing their feet thru the leaves.  There’s something about making a pile of leaves and playing around with them.

Random Thoughts for Thursday Morning

imageIt’s wet and cold out there this morning.  Glove cold.  That’s my gauge to use whether it’s cold or just plain cool.  I put on a pair of fleece gloves this morning.  We’re having “Munich rain” this morning and it chills to the bone.  I hope Melanie brought some decent clothes to wear why she’s at the Mayo.  It’s gonna be a tad “cool” when she flies in this morning.

I think I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up.  “Retired” fits the bill nicely.

Tonight is “get candy night” so I’m ready for Halloween.  I usually almost always overbuy since I never really know just how many tricksters will come to call on me.  I hate throwing it out after everything is all said and done but I’ll just eat it if I leave it laying around.  OK, I won’t throw out the little Butterfingers and I’ll freeze the mini 3 Musketeers.  Satisfied now?

We’re supposed to have beautiful weather here next week.  Remember that this “is” central Minnesota and “beautiful weather” is directly related to the time of year for this neck of the Hundred Acre Wood.

I wish the Director would quit making so many changes without measuring the average time to get something done with his “new and improved” process.

This rain and the last one knocked a good part of our leaves off of the trees.  We’re well past prime colour time now.  I miss living somewhere that has a more prolonged autumn.  It’s way too short around here.
