We decorated for Halloween by taping the candy to the door and letting everyone just take it. It was pretty great.
It was also 90 degrees.
On this day. November the 5th, it was 70 degrees. That is the coolest it has been all year. There has been a whopping zero percent chance of rain all summer.
See, zero. Do you know how insane that is? That’s “Nope. It ain’t gonna happen. Don’t even look for it. If you think you saw it, you didn’t. Because it’s not there. They don’t even have the ingredients for it. ”
That’s what zero is. It’s dry.
Which incidentally, makes it difficult to get excited for the Holidays. Just picture it…
Yeah, let’s grab some lights and hot chocolate with apple cider and bake a turkey. Put this funky sweater on. I don’t care how sweaty you are, this Wool and Corduroy will wick it right up, stop complaining, it’s only 94 outside. This family picture is going to happen! When I was little we had a blizzard to contend with. We were stuck inside with family for a week! Now be still so we can take this thing and go home so I can work on my tan!
This year is going to be great.
We did decorate for fall though.
I also got some sick shoes as an early Christmas present. Because my wife is amazing. I went to see my younger brother and sister today. He wants a leggo set and to be old enough to purchase a rated M video game.
My sister wants fuzzy socks.
And I just want to be able to remember where I put my keys and a day to do absolutely nothing with.
Also, I would like it to rain. A lot. A steady rain for a week. You don’t realise how much you miss it, until it’s gone. Something I can watch from my window. But that’s just the writer/reader in me.
