NaNoPoblano Day 2: The weekend

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt AND in non-avoidance of NaNoPoblano 2015

This is my weekend in a nutshell.  I was still feeling pretty crappy (remember that cough that won’t quit?  It won’t!)  Hallowe’en is a day I normally love, but it was left for Kevin to get us in the spirit with our decorations!  I handed out candy, but we only had 3 doorbell rings.  Last year over 30 kids, this year 6.  Kind of sad.





Mom and dad had us over for dinner on Sunday to celebrate my birthday (which is on Hallowe’en).  I could almost taste the food!  Just to be clear, this is a comment on my cold, not mom’s cooking which I know was yummy.  Dinner finished off with my favourite gluten free cupcakes from Origin bakery.  And thus, the weekend was over.


Now onto the week – the first week of November, and the first week after the time change which will wreak havoc on my after work activities now that it will be pitch black by 5:30…sigh…

  1. I love the lighter mornings but totally agree about the dark late afternoons.

    • Yeah – it’s a trade off. By December though, I’m driving to work in the dark, and coming home in the dark. Maybe I should be working nights…

  2. I think we got a mere 20 kids, while other people got hundreds! The Hubs and I were so perplexed. We’re on a good street in a neighbourhood full of kids and schools…so weird!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!

  4. Happy belated birthday, Emily. I hope your snuffles get better soon. Take care.
