Morning

Quiet day in chat yesterday

Was a quiet day at work for me yesterday, waited pretty much the entire afternoon for additional  work that never arrived.  Will probably be there this morning

After work went to the doctor's, then we  were supposed to have online Bible study but so many people were away we decided to hold off for this week.  Had time to exercise and relax

Today will hopefully be a little busier at work

Has been cooler here, around 50 or the upper 40s.  Rain has been holding off, which is nice after all the rain last week

Good morning! 

I saw Tweety's post yesterday, he will be missed.  I look forward to reading each post of the 'regulars' here. 🙂  

What exercises do you do, Joe?

Not much planned for today, except work!  I paid bills yesterday.  Today sometime (probably after I get home) I will purchase tickets for Bluegrass At the Beach festival, held at Havasu City in March.  This will be our first time attending this festival!  We hear it's a nice setting (on the river) and a good festival.  Lots of friends going too.  We always joke that we drive two hours away to pick/jam with ppl who live 30 min away from us!  lol!

Have a good day!

I will miss Tweety as well. I reading his accounts of work trigger bittersweet memories of my time in acute care. And I travel vicariously along with his and everyone else's travels.  

Yeah, my life seems pretty boring now, too. The rain has returned after a sunny, cold weekend. I had to take a flashlight on the dog walk this morning, mostly so that I can see any "deposits" made. Work is depressing. Even though I don't work directly with COVID response, I hear the numbers daily and they remain high, and hospitalizations are as high as they were last winter. The place doing antibody infusions can't book everyone who qualifies, and now they have staff out with positive tests. But I got my booster last week, and my two sons have gotten theirs. Dh needs to go get his. Hoping youngest grandson will get his this week or next. 

I almost forgot, Halloween! I took youngest grandson trick or treating, because his older brother went with his friends. He was dressed as an FBI agent: ball cap and windbreaker with FBI on them, an ear piece and aviator sunglasses (until it go dark]. We both had fun, then went back to his house and we watched a Muppet Halloween show. Dh manned the homefront, and we got, as predicted, one trick or treater, the little cutie that lives next door. 

Election day today! I voted for county council, city council and school board. Turnout so far was only 27%, which is sad. We vote by mail only, and the auditor posts how many ballots are turned in daily.

OOPS! I posted today's post under Mondays' posts.

 I hadn't seen any mention of Halloween except from j22. We quit giving out candy years ago when we lived up in Asheville....so many t&t'ers we spent too much $$ on candy and I said, "That's IT!" And here, the neighborhood isn't particularly neighborhood-y, as this road is often used as a cut-through with NO sidewalks and people who think 45 mph means 60 mph. Not the best place for a cluster of kids to walk in the dark!

I need to go get my flu shot, and find out when the J&J vaccines are to come in to our pharmacy....

Ozzie is still spending most of the day in bed. He got up at suppertime because hubby brought him downstairs. He did eat a late lunch and then a few hours later he asked for supper and ate every bit of it. Then it was back to sleep on the sofa, and I brought him back up here to my bedroom at bedtime. He begged a few bites of banana, which he LOVES, but which is constipating to dogs. And once he realized, like I always tell him, "Okay! Show's over!" he went back under the bed to sleep in his man-cave.

So, see yez a little later....
