Nice couple of days

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

The weather was very nice here for Halloween. A good bunch of kids and I was trying to get rid of all the candy. Thought I did pretty good with only 1/2 bowl left. Then the next day was cleaning up a closet and found 6 bags of various candies. 4 were chocolate types and they went into the freezer. If no one eats them they should be good to go for next year. lol The other 2 bags were Laffy Taffy and Nerds. Neither of these do I like or care about. They are up in a cupboard and I assume they too will be ok next year as long as the bags isn't opened.

We had a day of light rain over the weekend but it has warmed up a bit again during the day. In fact it was just around 82 with a nice breeze today. Did a walk along the new Anaheim Cove River Walkway. Round trip is 3.27 or something like that. The walk I took today takes a shorter route back then the round trip but it is a sandy path down closer to the SA River, still just over 3 miles.

Jeff has been working late most of the week. He is at the Anaheim Convention Ctr. working on installing BlizzCon. For those of you not familiar with this, it is hosted by Blizzard Entertainment Company located locally in Irvine, CA, the largest online gaming site for World of Warcraft. That is where I was able to see Ozzie Osborn a couple of years ago and my son got to see Foo Fighters two years ago. Jeff told us a couple of days ago the big group this year is Blink-182 on Sat. night. BlizzCon is very expensive to attend and they only have 20,000 tickets available world wide. Last year they had BlizzCon in China or Japan.

Samra will be home this weekend from AZ with her long term guy Carl. They will be attending her 10 yr. high school reunion. They both love Blink-182, so Jeff will try to get them some T-shirts.

We will be having Thanksgiving early on Sunday 11/10/13. My sister Doreen and her husband Fred will be here from Hemet, CA. I also asked her to let her son Rich who lives in San Clemente, CA which is located in S.OC, that he is welcome and he could bring a guest. Rich may have to work but I know Samra would love to see her cousin. Jeff has to work all day, but he has Monday off so he will be able to visit with Sam & Carl on that day and they will return to AZ on Tuesday as it is a 3 day weekend for them both and they decided to take 1 vacation day. They should arrived here sometime late Friday or early Sat.

Yesterday sucked. I felt awful for some reason, no energy, tired and my back was killing me. So took the day off and was able to get my walk in along the SA River and get some cleaning done. I did do laundry yesterday and along with about 30 mins. of ironing but that was it.

    Good for you! Our Halloween was nice too, but no Trick or treaters, so I was wise and did not buy candy! Hope Jeff can get Samra and her honey some Tees! Love the name Samra... Have a belly dance buddy named Samra from Brazil!

    What a job for Jeff. Sounds like an interesting venue and a lot of work!! Glad you are having a family gathering and can actually do it early. We tried to do Christmas before we left home and our DD who is now single and can't travel from now to mid Jan. due to her job, was upset that we would do that so going home is the weather allows. Holidays can be a little hard for some. Enjoy the time together!! Don't work too hard!

    Poor Jeff all work and no play! That is quite the convention, and all for a single game! Like Wow!! So glad you will get to see your daughter and sister, that will be a treat!
    Halloween was cool and rainy here, probably why the lower number of kids -they got all their treats in the indoor comfort of that mall instead :-P
    Snow and ice has come with a vengeance here and its not safe to walk anywhere. Just lucky to make it to the club and back in one piece. I actually watched a car spinning its wheels the entire time it tried to cross the intersection :(
    I am still feeling lousy too with the upset tummy, toe, and arm issues.
    Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for us!
    Give the candy to Jeff to take to work, bet it will go fast. I somehow think it would be pretty stale in a year's time..
    The people at the bridge club sure bring their left over treats from all occasions -even had people bring in their birthday cakes!!! It disappears fast!
    Still waiting for the couch photos ;)

    I'm happy for you that you had a nice day for trick-or-treating. It was cold and rainy here. Like you, I don't care about the leftover candy. emoticon emoticon
