Friday Night Potpourri

A short six days this week:

  • Autumn is starting out well.  Cool mornings, having to squeegee the car windows, with warm days.  The leaves are turning red on the maple and liquid amber trees.
  • Our oldest turned nine this week, and he received a model fighter jet from a relative for his birthday.  The parts are smaller and more detailed than anything I ever did as a kid.  This is his first model, and he's picked it up so fast it's amazing.  Hundreds of tiny decals and parts the size of a pinhead.
  • Neighbors are already decorating for Halloween.  One house has about a half dozen spiders on the roof that are about three feet across.  Looks creepy.
  • Took the kids' car seats out of my car for grandma to use.  Perfect time to vacuum what's underneath.  Wow.
  • Seventy four shopping days left until Christmas.  That means that there's seventy three days left until the shopping really begins.
  • It was everywhere ten years ago.  So, here it is again.
