I keep thinking today is somebody important's birthday, but I've gone through everyone I care about and it's not any of them. Might be that I'm confusing 10/10 for 10:10 which is my birth time. Yes, I acknowledge my birth time. If I happen to look at the clock at 10:10, I sing 'Happy Birthtime to Me'. Yeah, I'm weird. Are you surprised?
October is actually a busy month for birthdays and stuff. Two nephews, a sister, an anniversary, and two brothers-in-law. Plus, Halloween, which we don't even celebrate anymore.
Halloween is kind of boring when you don't have any kids at home and no kids in the neighborhood, and you're forgoing candy (for the most part). I used to buy a lot of candy and then eat most of it before Halloween and then have to buy more for trick-or-treaters. Now? Not bag one. Except Hubs' mini-Snickers and my bag of dark chocolate peanut M&Ms. Can't forego candy entirely. Sheesh.
I used to love the movie Hocus Pocus. Looked forward to watching it every fall. Then Bette Midler lost her everlovin' mind. Now I can't watch it. She ruined it for me. Of course, if I had a nickel for every movie and TV show that is now ruined by some actor's off-screen behavior, I'd be able to buy enough books to never have to be sad about lost entertainment again.
I keep getting reminders from Amazon to review books I didn't like. There's a reason I never reviewed it, guys.
Well, they're finally starting to work on the wooded lot to our north. I guess we never expected it to be vacant forever. A young couple has owned it all along, and now they're going to be building themselves a house. Today, someone was over there with a skidsteer(?) scraping the weeds and scrub away and knocking over small trees to clear a space for their home. The deer are a little freaked, but after the machine went away, the herd wandered around the dirt spot, investigating, so I guess they'll get over the change.
I suppose I should let y'all get back to your mornings now. Have a great day.
