All fresh and new.

They are calling for 3 to 4 inches of snow today but it will melt since it is supposed to be warmer later in the week. It is just a warning to get ready I guess. I did get all the outdoor chores for the Fall completed though. I am as prepared for Winter as one can be. thumbup

I must make some Halloween fudge/penuche later today as well.

We are covered in snow this morning. I know it will melt later this afternoon but it is too soon to see it, in my opinion. lol

Happy Halloween, I will spend the morning making fudge.

It is on the mid 40's now here. This evening it will get down to where you are now.
Possibly lower
It will not be a good night for littles here either.
But I am ready for the ones that come.

We usually start around 6:30p but we're waiting on my fiancee's nephew to show up... We don't have Aubree, but we have Trey and my littlest Loriann, her brother Eli, and their cousin Charlie at some point...

James, did you guys get a lot of good candy? I don't have any trick or treaters where I live so if I buy candy I eat it all smile

Supposed to be 30° in the morning. A big jump from 80 yesterday.

That is a drastic change in weather Bestofour, we call that 'sick' weather here.

Well, I ended up with 17 kids in total. The grands had a fun time, they each came back with a pillow case overflowing with treats. We get so few kids in our area that the treats are plentiful. I hope the kids had fun James.

I hope all the kids had fun. I had over a hundred
here. This subdivision that I live in is heavily trafficked.
This is a first for me.
We got 3 trick or treaters all together in my other 2 houses combined. I had to take my kids to my MIL's house each year.

Very cold here again today.

Thanks for sharing the pics James, awesome costumes and from the looks of it...I can see a dentist appt in the near future from all that candy. lol

Junie, I love seeing the kids all dressed up. I wish we had more kids around here.

It is a cold day here as well, I have laundry to catch up on.....as always.

I guess we should be thankful we have the clothes to wash.

Send me some Reeces cups James.

Did I tell you guys I got a few text from dodge? Her birthday was Halloween. She's doing fine but still no computer.

And Sunny you put the hex on me. With this colder weather my head is stopped up and my throat hurts.

Still cold here. I have hopes for tomorrow being warmer.

Glad to hear Dodge is well.

I hope your 'bug' is short lived Bestofour, it seems that a sudden change in temps gets everyone sick. Covid is still running rampant in our province, they estimate 1 in 8 has it now.

Today I need to wrap up the few boxwoods I have for Winter. I finally found where I put the burlap in the shed. The older I get...the more forgetful I am getting.

I took a few plant cuttings to save for next year but my stuff comes back anyway. I can't imagine having to cover or dig everything up like you guys.

I'm feeling better. I think it was allergies.

Yes, allergies can be a real pain. I think I have a cold but then a few hours After I use my nasal spray I am all good.

Sweet Dreams everyone !

I hope you all had a nice weekend. It was cold but the flurries that fell melted by the end of day so it is all good.

Today is a clean and mop day. I need one nice day soon to be able to put up the Christmas lights...send some nice weather here by the weekend please. grin

I am glad that the two of you are not 'sick' with a bug.

It was a nice weekend. Not real warm but bearable at least. This Wednesday is to be the pick day of the week. I am hoping to get out and do my fall yard work that day.

Sounds good, do you just need one day for your clean up?

It is storming here at the moment and of course GG has a dentist appt later. It is supposed to be done in a few hrs, fingers crossed.

Rod says I cannot go out and get my outdoor work done. He said the only thing that will help my back is rest. And, with the kids coming this weekend, I need to be recovered. So I will just have to hope the weather allows me to do my outdoor work in the next few weeks.

I hope your storm has stopped before you had to get out in it.

Junie, your husband is a smart man. Would he be able to do the clean up for you?...maybe the grands could help him.

We got to the appt but the roads were slushy. Driving in slush is worse than driving in snow.

Glad you are home safe. I really dislike winter for the weather thing alone.

Probably not concerning the clean up. If the subject comes up, I may suggest it though.

I still to do a few things in my yard. Maybe tomorrow afternoon.

Bestofour, I will try to send you some wetness...do you want it in snow? lol

Today I need to staple the rugs to the back step, the heavy frost in the morning makes it a 'slip and slide'. Our snow has all melted again. grin

I woke up to a few inches of snow this morning, just enough to make a mess since I have to leave in a half hour for GG's Remembrance Day ceremony at school. We will attend the second one at the local Legion tomorrow as well.

Have you had less precipitation than normal this year, Bestofour? We have had double than normal.

I don't know about Bestofour but we are low on precipitation here. I am glad you are ahead of the game, Sunny.

It is a beautiful day here today I was outside this morning and no jacket or coat was needed. It was/is wonderful.

We had a lot of rain a few months back so I don't know that it's less for the year so far but it's been dry for the last couple of months,

Went to the Southern Christmas Show today. Christmas season is upon us. 41 days until Christmas!!

41 days? What all did you see at the show, I think you said before that it is also a craft fair isn't it??

I did manage to get the lights on the roof yesterday, I'll finish the rest of the outdoor decorating in a few days when it warms up again. I don't mind the cold but the lights do not want to bend when it is below the freezing point.

Today is a clean and mop day.

Oh craft fairs...I love them ! I am hopeful that I might get to go to one of the 3 they are having close to me this weekend. IF I do not have to keep the kids, as Brian and Valarie are going to have a booth at the craft fair that her school is having.

Good morning

I hope to get to another craft fair soon as well, they are having one close to where DD lives. We plan to go then take the grands to do their Christmas shopping.

Today is a 'pay the bills' day, the good thing is that I get to go to the stores as well. The newer neighbors still can't get over that it takes an hour to drive to WalMart from here. lol

Have a good day everyone.

To tell the truth we were a little disappointed in the Christmas Show. There was a lot of barbeque sauce, jewelry, maps, makeup and hair product stuff that didn't have anything to do with Christmas. One of the clothing pop ups that travels around that we love didn't have anything good either. Clothes have gotten hideous.

Sunny, when Colt moved to the last little town in GA that's the first thing he told me about it - "there's not even a Target. We have to drive for 45 minutes." He was NOT happy.

I was thinking the same thing when it comes to clothes. My gosh, styles and colors are absurd. I was looking at items yesterday and thinking...who would wear that? lol

You know, I have been to many craft fairs over the years and am yet to find something that has to do with the real meaning behind Christmas. There is never a nativity themed item anywhere.

Yes about Nativity based items. Thank God I have several native ties to put out each year. Some I made, some were gifts, a few I bought. And I have one more ordered, but it is really to rep!ace parts of my mom's Nativity that I now have that needs a few pieces replaced. But yes, you are right. I did make sure my girls grew up knowing the real meaning of Christmas. I still remember my oldest was 2 1/2 and we were on our way to Church on Christmas Morning. She yells out from her car seat "It's Jesus's Birthday !!
At least we did that right.
