Christmas Lights Already?

Yesterday I saw 4 houses already decorated with Christmas lights. The decorating seems to start earlier and earlier.

Our newspaper’s extra large bag was bursting at the seams with too many adverts for Black Friday.

Snowed In? Make Cookies!

We were snowed in today. Was going to make a snowman (Ralph’s first), but it wasn’t good packing snow…so made cookies instead. Cherry pecan. All gone…I guess they were tasty!

Was going to make choc chip cookies, then at the last minute Ralph called an audible, and went with healthier ingredients.

We’ve gotten at least 4″ of snow. Really pretty, but brrrr. So glad we got the wood stove!

Vote By Mail

Oregon has vote by mail, which is nice. You get a ballot several weeks before election day so you can take your time thinking about the proposals and who to vote for. Then, either mail it in or drop it off.

Cold On My Bike

Due to the cold weather and wind, today was my first NOT pleasant day [of this winter] to be on my bike. Time to dig out my too big, ugly, bright yellow, reflective, NO wind is getting thru this, road construction jacket. Tomorrow will be better. Brrr.

Fall Back

I changed all the clocks before going to bed. Got up at 8.15 and thought it strange that it was still dark outside. Very strange. Then realized that even though I knew it was Fall Back, I had set the clocks Ahead. Oops.
