This is my annual rant about how I hate standard time. Not a morning person, we were pretty darned annoyed to have to turn the lights on in the house at 5:30 pm, it makes me cranky, blah blah blah. I'd say that I wish we’d pick a time and stick to it, but just like last week, I’m a liar. I want it to be daylight saving time all year round!

I sang in the choir today (they needed an alto), but I’m sparing you the picture I took of me in my choir robe – only because I have PLENTY of other selfies this week. Instead you get this picture of an afghan square. It’s my 4th colorway in the 20th pattern – 4 more patterns to go & then I have to assemble these puppies.

I broke down & plugged in this ancient & terrifying space heater at work. My office was about 64 degrees, but since I pay the energy bill I was loathe to turn the heat on. This monster probably uses as much energy as the heat pump though, don’t you reckon?

I spent today in a notary class at the local community college. We had an active shooter drill in the middle of class, so we all sat against the wall & played on our phones. I worked on a Christmas present during lunch, and then I made 100 on my test! Here is a weird social media thing. Ordinarily I get maybe 20 likes on something I post on Facebook. Sometimes I get as many as 50 or 60 (woo hoo!). I posted the picture of my test score and got 72 likes. What the heck! My latest selfie only gets 20 likes, but a picture of the number 100 gets 72? Social media is weird. Ha!
Ms. Pinky is still very happy on the porch.
On to the next pattern… This is the one I was wearing on my head last week. It decided to cooperate once I blocked it.

Dr. M went to the store to get Halloween candy (we had four trick-or-treaters – up from zero last year), and this was the sight that greeted him. Sigh.
Meanwhile, at work I was annoyed that my hair kept getting stuck down the back of my jacket.

Dr. M drove around and got some lovely pictures of our area.
Meanwhile, I tried a sort of messy bun situation. Hmm…
Friday, November 2nd
Went to the hospital to have a blood test to see if I still have elevated metal levels (from my old hip appliance). My doctor thinks they should have dissipated by now, but he wanted to check to make sure. When you have lab work done at the hospital it’s considered an outpatient procedure, so I got this lovely bracelet!
Saturday, November 3rd
Dr. M & I took a road trip to do some leaf peepin. These are my pictures – check back on Wednesday to see his photos from his camera. It was a lovely day!
Well, Tuesday is Election Day. I’m hoping for a big blue wave, but as something I read today put it – even if we don’t win, we’ll know the shape that our organizing needs to take.
