So…uh, what happened to November folks?? I don’t really know where to begin because the post I’ve been thinking about posting is irrelevant seeing as how Halloween is long over and gone. So just imagine, I walked around my neighborhood and took pictures of the decorations people put up and some of them were pretty cool. A lot of people around here did some sort of decorations even if it was minimal. One of my favorites was a ginormous spider a guy built out of PCP pipe with glowing green fangs and put up in the front yard. I’d post the pics but they didn’t turn out all that well now that I’m looking back at them. We even decorated our porch which was a cross between nice harvest with pumpkins and hay bales and typical Halloween with spider webs and ghosts. I even tried to make this:
It didn’t quite turn out exactly like this but good enough. Another reason I’m not posting pictures is because my computer is going through a freak out period. I just got it a few months ago and there’s already some sort of hardware glitch. Lovely. I’ve talked to tech support on two separate occasions and all I’m wanting them to do is send me a box to put my computer in so I can send it to be repaired. It is now a month after my initial call and I still don’t have a box. Grrr. I will be making yet another call tomorrow and may have to ask to be transferred to their complaints department or something. It’s frustrating and annoying. And I’m annoyed that I have to talk to some guy in India who I can’t understand and who can’t understand me. Double Grrr.
With the semester coming to an end I’ve been bombarded with papers, projects, assignments, etc. The good thing is I’m starting to see the end. Whoo hoo! We had family in for Thanksgiving which was fun. I was a cooking fool last weekend. I made a big dinner the night before then cooked the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and made four pumpkin pies. I love pumpkin pie. All the cooking is just the warm up for the Christmas desserts that need to be made. Last year I baked a little over 400 cookies, 5 loaves of bread, three batches of fudge, 2 batches of cream cheese brownie bars, 2 or 3 batches of homemade oreo cake/cookies, and tried divinity which I ended up being sidelined for because that’s really hard to make. Maybe this year. Speaking of the Christmas season, all the holiday movies have started up which I’m apparently a sucker for. So odd because ordinarily I can’t stand Lifetime or Hallmark but sprinkle in Christmas and I can’t turn it off. Go figure.
Well for some stupid reason I woke up at 3:45 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. I hate that. So I”m going to go attempt to do that now. But I’m going to leave you with what I discovered making a web outside my window:
Ok, ok so it wasn’t really a goliath birdeating tarantula out there but it may as well have been. It was totally big and creepy. Well, pleasant dreams!
