It is a very rainy day today. I can hear the rain hitting the roof and I am starting to feel the drag of the colder weather; don’t feel too motivated to walk the dogs in the rain. It is the first day of October which means time for a little decorating for fall and Halloween. I can’t find pumpkins which is really bumming me out. How can they not have pumpkins? I love pumpkins but have not seen even one in any grocery store. Pumpkin patches only open the week right before Halloween. How can this be? This week I need to find a farmer’s market so I can secure a pumpkin. Next year I will be sure to plant them in the yard so I can have my own supply.
I brought out my big bin of Halloween decorations just to remember that I can’t plug in any of my light-up pumpkins. Ugh! I also really need a pumpkin spice candle. That is a must.
We didn’t really have any new adventures this week, but did have a nice weekend. We visited Southampton again for a little shopping at their great mall and soon realized it was “payday weekend.” The mall was packed and looked like the week before Christmas with everything half off. I have not seen a mall that crowded in a very long time.
Lance and I also went into London last night to have dinner with a friend of his from California. We continue to be pleased with how quick and easy it is to get into London, just zoomed in and out for dinner.
