Outside my window: the weather is very slowly starting to consider cooling down again. And by that I mean that yesterday we had a high of like 82 and today we had a high of 77. But I saw a high in the 50′s predicted in a few days. Why am I hopeful that it will get cold again? I’m not really sure, I think I just like to complain about stuff. And wear sweaters and drink hot cocoa. But I don’t actually want to be cold, okay?
This weekend: was of the super lazy persuasion, due mostly to the fact that Dan was on call helping a customer with an upgrade and per usual it consisted of a ton of shenanigans and not much sleep. But in the end, the software finally decided to
work right and then I think birds start chirping and Cinderella got to wear a pretty dress – oh and there was thai food, too. I love it when that happens.
We also: bought the rest of BB’s Halloween costume – she is going to be a very pretty kitty, inspired by this gorgeously simple costume I saw online last year and cannot stop swooning over. I like to do costumes consisting mostly of regular clothing with a few accessories to bring it all together, that way I can use most of the pieces throughout the year. Her costume totally follows those rules.
MM’s costume is totally one of those one piece cheap polyester pullover deals from Menards, but he loves it so I don’t care (just this once). Wanna know what he’s gonna be? Woody from Toy Story! Truthfully I was just thankful to not have to pull a Perry the Platypus costume out of thin air ’cause most of my ideas involved either sewing or a $30 sweatshirt from the Disney Store. Which is admittedly pretty cool, but this was an easy fix and he was pretty set on it the minute he saw the Woody costume.
Although I suppose in a pinch, this might have worked:
Right now I am reading: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, our October book club pick. I just started it last night and truthfully I’ve read so little that I’m not yet prepared to say anything about it except “so far so good” but it’s pretty popular so I’m hoping it will be a great read.
