Finally seeing some sun peeking through

Friday, September 06, 2013

Unusual for us to have several days of dark cloudy days and somewhat chilly....I say chilly meaning like 66 degrees. That is chilly for me who is used to 75-80. and remember we do not have heat in our homes although we do have fireplaces. But it wasn't so chilly we needed to turn it on. But today I see some clearing skies. Looking forward to a nice walk with the doggies this morning. Then we will check in on FIL and then a late lunch with dear friends at Lake Taco where I get yummy grilled fish tacos on corn tortillas.

DH and I watched the first 3 episodes of Breaking Bad. I think we are addicted now and will continue on watching it. It's fun when DH gets into a program with me. I could tell he wasn't that into the Orange is the New Black but he hung in there for me. Anyway will be fun watching it with him.

DH made our reservations for our up coming trip to Seattle for a wedding. We will stay with my step-son for like 10 days and then go from there to Pennsylvania and stay there until like November 3rd or so. So that means we will have Halloween with the grandkids which excites me. I love Halloween. I pulled out costumes I made years ago and will take them with me to make my DH and I up like characters from Cats. Should be fun. I will make us up with professional make up while the kids are in school and we will pick them up in costume. I think they will like it. I decided to do the cats thing instead of scary as they are still too young for scary. Especially the granddaughter who hates scary.

I hope all of you are doing well and eating right and getting that exercise in.
Have a wonderful day.

    Your trips sound like fun although they will probably have cooler temperatures then you are used to.. They aren't celebrating Halloween in my city as much as they used to. There always used to be a haunted house put on for charity and now there have been none the last few years and a number of people would decorate their yards and now its few and far between to find someone making the effort. I would love to travel to a place that does it up right. Those zombie dances sounded like so much fun that one Spark friend shared a video of her granddaughter participating in.

    How fun to be with the grand kids for Halloween! We had a heavy rain storm overnight, more in 1 day than the whole summer. Enjoy the sun.
