Well, we have made it through Halloween & are on the express train to Christmas. Thanksgiving will be but a blip in the road. Actually, it’s a pretty big deal around here and I am in the thick of organizing our family’s annual gathering – this year there will be around 40 folks! (Note: by “organizing” I mean sending out reminders & nagging emails.)

Lookit! I actually can park! Photo credit to my Aunt Mimi who was quite impressed.
I was happy that my crochet hook matched my yarn.

Dr. M saw a spice harvester when he was out and about. OK, maybe it wasn’t a spice harvester.

The neighbor’s cat, Callie, has adopted our deck as one of her favorite hangout spots.
I made one of my concoctions for dinner. Sweet potato slice with black beans cooked with onion & BBQ sauce, topped with Greek yogurt mixed with lime & cilantro. I think I’ve shared it on here before, but it’s so good that I had to share it again. Ha!

The only picture today is my work outfit. Yes, I am wearing the heck out of my new yellow pants.

Leaves in the parking lot at work during a lull in the rain. It POURED for a lot of the day. As expected, we didn’t get any trick or treaters.

Might be about time for a haircut.
We had frost warnings & temps down in the 30s so Dr. M brought the girls in for the winter. I’ve been fretting all summer and fall about how we were going to accomplish this because of Dr. M’s back surgery. Then in typical Dr. M fashion, he just done & did it & told me afterward.

I spent the day cleaning the house, working on a Creation Care Covenant for church, sending out a reminder email about our Thanksgiving dinner, drafting a church bulletin item about our Prayer Sister Brunch, and working on this post. I don’t know who let this “responsible” Bug into the house, but I’m ready for her to head right back out again! What have you accomplished this weekend?
