How did you celebrate your happiness this Halloween week?
So glad to be home after traveling, even though it was a successful trip. Cats! Husband! My own shower with actual water pressure!
I spent 3 hours putting up Halloween decorations, and my very wonderful brother in law is coming today to help me put up the four big inflatable ones. The haunted house is hard to do by myself.
In case I don’t get here again before Tuesday, happy Halloween – my you have all the magic and candy you want.
Got out into the warm October light for a couple of photography days. Started a new landscape photography project, and enjoyed the trial run – so now I’ve got a focus, which feels great.
Had a good night’s sleep last night – really enjoyed my extra hour – and am feeling much happier for it.
Oh, and now I’ve got a preset to process the raw files from my new camera as I import them, my photographs are making me a lot happier.
Gardening on a rare warm late October afternoon – I still have flowers blooming in my garden. Organized a successful farewell party for my boss – I’m replacing her temporarily and resolved a number of messy work issues on my own this week. Nursing my son through a nasty bout of gastro – not fun for him but even crusty teenagers still need their moms.
I’ll be on candy duty at my daughter’s home, until she gets there at seven. We thought the new pup might go beserk with all the doorbell ringing. She normally gets around 100 trick or treaters.
I planted All The Garlic!
go you ! When do you harvest it ?
Garlic is fully mature in July here, but I have a lot of volunteer plants (growing from the garlic-top bulbils — like seeds — that have been scattered over the years and grow like weeds in an abandoned corner of the garden) that I can pull before then when the prior year’s crop has run out or started to sprout. The volunteer plants are small, and form just a single bulb instead of a whole head, and they’re sort of a pain to peel, but they’re fresh and free, and they fill in the gap from one year’s crop to the next.
I’m happy to be home after the surgery on my broken arm & fingers. Healing will take a while, but at least it’s over.
Heal well and quickly !
Garden watered and potted plants ready for planting, both awaiting our return from a long weekend.
Meeting with friends, making new ones, talking over the garden preservation passion we share in common. We’ve been doing this for years now, so hugs aplenty.
Exploring mostly mid-century modern Palm Springs gardens, homes, interiors with California Garden and Landscape History Society. This year is Steven’s turn to show us what makes his area of the state historic and special. Job well done.
Visited my daughter in Albuquerque and loved the time together and the city, which is a real quirky and unique place.
Went to a Halloween Party last night. Some good friends from our HOG chapter that we have not seen in too long. Went on a hay ride. Good food . Good friends. This was out in the country so no street lights. A great way to appreciate the sky and the stars. I made sweet potato chili. The cut on my finger is healing up nicely .Cutting up the sweet potatoes is a risky business.
PS: I went as a “Harley Davidson Crossing” guard. Joe bought a mask at Target Friday. Neither of us know what it is. I think maybe an American Hero bad guy.
