When I woke up this morning the outside temp was 50 (F), that's warm for this late in October, and that temp is going to continue to climb for the rest of the week, hitting the low 80s (F) by Saturday. Then it's gonna plummet, with daily highs only expected to be in the mid 40s, just in time for Halloween.
Speaking of Halloween, I need to find out which night is trick or treating in my neck of the woods to I can turn my front porch light off. There is nothing enjoyable in handing out pieces of candy to small children I do not know, many of whom don't even live on my street. I can remember when people used to brag about the number of trick or treaters they'd get, the same way they'd brag about the number Christmas cards they received as if it was a badge of honor. I guess it's this thing some people have with numbers, the higher the better, or perhaps it makes them feel as though they're more popular... well, I guess in away that's right, they are popular with strangers, for one night out of the year because they're handing out free candy. Don't get me wrong. I like Halloween. However, like every other holiday, it's become super commercialized.
On the kitchen Reno: all the priming has been done. Today I'm hoping to paint the walls. Then, I'll be able to put away my rollers, and brushes, and stir sticks, and move onto something new, like the flooring. There are 8 boxes of vinyl plank flooring still sitting in the back of my car. I'll bring them inside this afternoon.
And yesterday this happened.
