It's really starting to look like November around here.
Lots of leaves have fallen.
A week ago we were seeing trees like this,
taken outside DSW shoe store across from the mall.
On Halloween night we had extreme wind and heavy rain.
I was so concerned about our many trees
but they all stayed standing.
One neighbor two houses away from us
was not so fortunate.
They had a tree come down which basically
sliced their second story in two...
tree went through the house from the front to the back.
They are fine....thankfully the lady of the house left their bedroom
shortly before it came down.
Trick or treat was postponed until Friday in this area.
I didn't get pictures of the kids.
They went to a neighbors for dinner before going around the neighborhood.
I was too busy handing out the snacks we gave
to be snapping pictures.
Ugh, just can't do too many things at once anymore!
I do have this one of Zoe
taken on Wednesday evening before they went
to Awana for Trunk or Treat.
She's someone from a kids movie.
I can't for the life of me remember the title!
I'm a piece of work =/
Aidan's blow up costume is on the back of the chair...
it's from Star Wars.
Noah was a was Power Ranger.
Friday morning after the wind and rain.
Today we had a guest come for a feast
in our back yard!
It hung around for about 20 minutes!
I had to take pictures through a dirty window...
if I had opened the door
it would have taken off for sure!
It's been chilly... cold really.
I had decided I wasn't going to wear boots until November.
(I do not like shoes.
I do not like boots.
I do not like to have my feet confined...
I do not like cold feet ☺)
I'm now wearing my boots.
It certainly feels like November!
Last Sunday (Oct. 27)
we had a wonderful lunch with friends that we haven't seen in a long time.
It was wonderful!!
After lunch we went to see another friend who lives
in a beautiful PC home.
Long ago we would all would get together,
kiddos included...we had 3 at the time,
for a weekend in the fall.
We had the best time reminiscing about those fun times!
Dave and Carol, Brenda, me and Dale
(my eyes are closed, oh well)
So good to be together again!
Like I said on FB,
we did a lot of talking
but we were not nearly finished!
Dave and Carol had another visit to make
and then a long drive back home.
Hopefully we will have more opportunities to do this again!
It's getting dark outside already
and it's not even 5:30 yet....
I'll eat dinner then grab a blanket and a cup of decaf.
The Voice is what I plan for my evening!
If it wasn't that it would be a Hallmark Christmas movie ♥
Oh how I love them.
Take care, stay warm!
