Happy Halloween!
 

It's Halloween here in the US and I've got to pump myself up to walk the neighborhood with Cal. I'd rather crawl into bed and read but I'm going to follow Walter White/Heisenberg as he goes from house to house asking for candy. Maybe an infusion of chocolate will give me the boost I need....

Rain, rain rain and a little bit more....
 

Fall/Winter is here. The rain is hard and sometimes arrives with some heavy wind. Tonight no wind just lots of rain. Good News...tomorrow is Friday and Saturday is supposed to give us a break with a few sunbreaks. Have a great weekend.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Very Tired
 

Not sure if that's the weather. Today was thick fog, steady drizzle, and it never got lighter than dark grey.

Or the time change. We put the clocks back last weekend and it seems to take me longer to adjust these days.

It's Hallowe'en - All Hallows Eve - this coming Friday, which means it's also Samhain in the north and Litha in the south - we wish all or Pagan and Wiccan readers a good feast. And a good All Saints' Day and All Souls Day to our Christian readers.

See you next week. Goodnight and may your God/s go with you

Things Come in Threes
 

Not having a good week so far...

Yesterday I discovered I've misplaced, probably lost, my library card, and they're a pain to replace.

Today I was hurrying for the bus - I wasn't running, honest, I was just sort of speeding up my walk a bit. And a kerb-stone leapt out in front of me and deliberately tripped me.

Well... maybe it was more that I was hurrying and paying more attention to not wanting to be late that where I was stepping and I fell over the kerb. In an effort to protect my bad shoulder I flipped right over and smacked my knee on the kerb. Ripping my jeans, bruising my knee, and grazing it so that it bled.

This left me with two options - go home for fresh jeans, antiseptic cream and a bandage, and be late, or carry on, be on time but looking like I'd been fighting a grizzly bear. Since the thing I was trying not to be late for was a hospital appointment I decided to go on - at least if I needed treatment I'd be in the right place!!

The appointment was for my yearly shoulder check up and brain scan - it's the eighth anniversary of my serious bike crash - they just like to check that everything is ok. (It was).

Eight years already... blimey. Where does time go...

Of course, I was on time but they were not. Good thing I took a book with me.

And Snow's not very well. She worried me on Sunday - she was off her food - and she loves her food!! The vet says she has a cold. He gave her a vitamin jab, and I've got some high-protein vitamin paste to feed her with so, even though she doesn't feel like eating, she'll stay well-nourished. Poor little mite. She doesn't feel much like playing either. She just wants to sleep. But the vet says she'll be fine.

Weekend Wrap Up
 

T and I didn't do to much. Few chores, watched couple dvd's and cranked up the fireplace. Heat will go on tonight. When the house slips down to the low 50's it is time for heat. Return to work in the morning. Long day as I will be waiting around on Monday's & Wednesday's for the kiddo to be done with basketball practice. That makes for very long days.

Enjoy your updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

More Lovely Rain
 

Movie night for me and E. First up is my choice of Belle, a period drama. Then E's choice brings a little levity from Jason Bateman in Bad Words. It's a perfect way to end a rainy day.

Another One
 

I am once again sickened and saddened by another useless shooting at a local high school. Amazingly enough in our country people still fear gun control...really how can that be? The lobbyist has full control and plays on fear, fear fear. Such bullshit. And kids continue to die. We have a local bill to vote on next week and one can only hope that common sense strikes.

A sad day one that totally should not have happened and yet it did.

4 kids are in critical condition shot in the head at close range, they will never be the same and sadly one died at the scene with the shooter. Here is hoping we can learn from the tragedy but how many times do we have to say that before it happens?

No more.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Rain, Rain, Please Stay
 

Lovely rain fell all day. Then just before it was time for school to let out, the sun made an appearance. How nice that the weather was so accommodating.

I think Max is slowly getting used to his new raincoat. He still doesn't like the rain at all but at least when he's wearing it he'll actually do his business instead of yanking you home. Perhaps by the end of our typically wet winter Max will learn to tolerate his walks in the rain.

The Stuff of Nightmares
 

It's Diwali, we wish out Hindu, Sikh, and Jain readers a good festival.

This weekend is the Islamic New Year - Happy New Year to our Muslim readers.

......

So... have you all seen those pics online of that giant spider in South America. With a 28cm leg span and weighing over 170g. That's the stuff of nightmares.

The bloke who photographed it - and who seemed delighted and excited by its appearance - said he "heard its footsteps before he saw it".

He heard its footsteps...

I'm sorry, but any spider big enough that you can hear its footsteps is not one I'm going to hang around for. I'd have been out of there so damned fast you'd have heard the sonic boom on Mars!!

Flamethrower. Kill it!! Kill it with fire!! I would have burned the whole bloody forest down to get it.

And on that happy note I'll leave you to your reading.

See you next week. Goodnight and may your God/s go with you.

Blown Away
 

Yesterday we had a walk-in greenhouse. It consisted of a metal frame covered in a heavy duty plastic shell, which zipped closed. It was tall enough for me to stand inside. It was a bugger to put up as the plastic was a pretty tight fit.

Today we have a frame. The plastic is gone. It isn't ripped or torn & lying in the garden. Or in next door's garden. Or down the road. No bits of plastic lying around. It's gone. Vanished. Disappeared without a trace.

The gale-force winds we had last night have taken it.

How the hell they managed to do so without any damage to the frame is a mystery. How it managed to vanish without a trace is also a mystery. If you hear any rumours of a UFO being seen in England it'll be our greenhouse, flying along like a Zeppelin!!

....................

E, mate, blimey - don't start apologising because I check a few sites! I wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy it. I'd check them anyway, looking for new stuff to read. OK - I probably wouldn't check all these fandoms, I'd probably limit my searches to my favourite fandoms, but I'd still poke about looking for things, just in case I found a new fandom to like.

Sorry Ze...
 

I might as well apologize now as Ze will find numerous updates for y'all tomorrow night. I on the other hand only check our usual sites and have once again only found a couple for you to read. So enjoy those and get ready for the loads Ze will send at you Tuesday and Wednesday.

Until than have a splendid evening.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Busy
 

Kind of a busy weekend for us. Saturday we ran a few errands and drove little e to a birthday party/sleepover. The kids both had homework that filled a lot of their time.

Cal and I made a trip to the comic store today. E spent the afternoon visiting with old high school friends. And little e has been working on schoolwork since she got home from her sleepover.

Tonight Cal will continue with homework. He has a science project that's due on Tuesday so I've made sure he didn't wait until the last minute to complete it. That was always my fatal weakness when it came to projects for school and he has a tendency to do the same.

Monday evening he should be able to finish it up and get to bed on time.

Fire Good
 

Not very cold and the rain has stopped, but that fire still feels good. I may have to turn on the heat soon. But holding off until mid to late October is great.

Enjoy those updates and have a splendid Sunday.

Peace, Health and Happiness.
