Happy first of November to you and yours. There’s nothing very clever or insightful I have to write about today. I’m still trying to wake up and clear my head from the wine and candy from the night before. Our Halloween festivities kept us out until about 1am. It’s noon and we just ate breakfast. Now, what on Earth are we going to do with two grocery bags full of candy? Luckily, I found a willing 20 year old to pon off one of the bags to. I’m sure he and his room mates will enjoy it. I’ve hidden the other bag so that we aren’t tempted to sneak anymore. Those will be saved to be used as bribery treats. I see no shame in bribing my kids.
Here we were about to get in line to enter a awesome neighborhood haunted house. By then Marley and Jackson had ditched their fairy wings and firefighter helmet, and I’d lost the tooth off of the top of my cane.
Goals for this Saturday… after a cup of hot chai tea, I will…
1. Put Halloween decor away.
2. Daily house chores in keeping the house tidy; laundry, clean the kitchen, clean the bathrooms, and pick up the kids rooms.
3. Get some Braille fun worked into the day with Marley. I’m designing a tactile board game for Marley to practice her Braille and learn how to read simple words. I’m also going to order more Braille tape, and clear adhesive paper for putting Braille into books. You know that contact paper you use for lining drawers and cabinets? I’ve discovered that that is the most cost effective way to go to turn a regular print book into a book with Braille.
4. Pull out the slow cooker. The cool weather has finally arrived in Las Vegas. The temperatures dropped about 30 degrees overnight. I woke up the the sound of the wind gusting outside, wind chimes going crazy, and the delicious smell of rain. It’s going to be a soup kind of night.
And 5. Get in some sort of physical family fun. It’s a little too windy for a hike. Perhaps a family yoga session, or a family dance party with a game of twister?
What does your first of November look like for you?
Until tomorrow, make it a great day!
