What do you get when you cross a vampire and a snowman? Frostbite.
You know the drill, we are up at them early! We went into the swim spa to get the day started; Colleen was asleep, and staying outside was good.
We have a “family wall,” and we plan to put our kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids on display! Mary had pictures of her kids at the old house, so we put a few of them on a convenient bookshelf.
The fall flowers are beautiful, and they decorate all around the house. We have yet to put up the garlands, but that will be on Saturday,
Every room is decorated, including the exercise room with Witchy rides the elliptical instead of a broom!
It is Thursday, and that means Girls Night Out at the Elks. We had a load of fun, and the hat prize was awarded to Linda. Check out the side of the hat carefully; such boney fingers you have!
The usual suspects were in attendance, although the Sea Booger Lady was not there; Iris had a card game, and there was no Sea Boogers to be had!
After lunch, we stopped by Mary’s work to get a stamp so the new doctor taking her practice over could send out announcements, and with Mary’s name on the envelope, people will open it. Then we drove to his offices in Irvine and delivered the stamp to his office.
Back home, we did some chores; Mary dead-headed the roses again while I took out the trash. We had another six large 90-gallon cans of refuse! Where is it all coming from!
By dusk, we were tired and decided it was Halloween movie time. Colleen, Mary, and I found comfortable spots to crash in the TV Room and watched Hocus Pocus all the way through and then Haunted Mansion!
After the movie, we again hit the swim spa because Mary has to work tomorrow and a good night’s sleep is helpful!
Upon arriving at the hot tub/swim spa I realized that Mary had redecorated the tub! I think I will let her go in first!
Just before crashing, we went upstairs to see our handiwork in the dark. We have done an excellent job!
Mary had a great idea; we put the orange lights OVER the white lights. It gave the tree a candy-corn look!
The decorations are fun, and we will change the tree to a Thanksgiving tree in a month!
I use my LIFX bulbs all over the house to change colors and be programmed to go through a sequence of effects. Well, we chose a simple pumpkin color for the lights upstairs.
Now it is time to crash as tomorrow is another busy day!
