October flew right by, didn’t it? I have to say that our Halloween was just lovely complete with an (almost) full moon, spooky wind and mild temps. You’d think that one single trick or treater could have managed to stumble down our driveway. But no. Not a one.
Dear Lazy Trick or Treaters,
Saving yourself a couple of steps cost you a king size candy bar, your choice of Reese’s peanut butter cups or Kit Kat. Don’t worry, my chocoholic family will make short work of them.
King. Size. What has become of our youth?

And then, just like that, it’s November. Time to think about turkeys (for us USA-ers) I saw an ad for a Butterball service that texts tips and hints for the Thanksgiving dinner. I couldn’t help but sign up. Those texts make me smile every time.
Except for this one:
Practice makes perfect! Ensure ur Thanxgiving meal goes off w/out a hitch by scheduling a practice run b4 the main event.
That one is the least helpful of all. Imagine having a complete Thanksgiving meal only to do it (and all the leftovers) again in a couple of weeks? Honestly, Butterball. That’s a sneaky way to try to get us to buy 2 turkeys this season.
Historically November is also a bit famous (or infamous??) for it’s blogging challenge. Blog every day during the month of November. I took up the challenge 2 years ago. Once I started blogging, I couldn’t stop. I blogged every day for the year 2008. 2009? Not so much. So, I threw down the gauntlet to myself to blog everyday. It’s good for me. I’m not so sure if it’s good for you, but hopefully you’ll read. And comment a bit to encourage me. Or yell at me. Or something.
And a word about face rash:
If you follow me on Facebook, you already know this. On Thursday I came down with a face rash complete with red cheeks. The rash was a bit itchy but not overly so. I did not change any soaps or shampoos or detergents. I did not eat any weirdo food. I looked like I had a huge zit breakout with a red, red face. And I was TIRED! I slept yesterday for 13 hours! I think I may have had a fever because I kept waking up shivering. (It was not cold last night at all)
But today, the bumps have gone down a bit, my face isn’t as hot and red as before and I can keep my eyes open for a bit.
