Today I'm working evenings and am straightening and cleaning up around the house. I'm trying my very best not to dip into the Halloween candy today since I go get blood work done tomorrow morning. Don't feel too sorry for me. I ate my weight in the stuff yesterday. We didn't have any trick or treaters, which was a disappointment but not a surprise, and I felt a deep obligation to not leave that bowl sitting there full and luscious looking. I felt it definitely needed that lived-in look. Truly the bowl was beckoning me. I think my bowl of candy needed a little love, don't you? LOL!!!
Hubby and I did have to jump in and get the deck cleared of all lawn furniture and take down any plaques we had attached to the outside of the house due to the fact that our people are here today to pressure wash the house. Wednesday they will get the house stained. Oh, I just can't wait! It will look so nice when it's all finished!
I've been trying to get the basement garage cleaned out or at least in some kind of order and realized I had a couple boxes of spearmint and peppermint that one of my brothers had collected for me. I also have a batch of lavender and basil and it all needs to be stripped and put away. I then have to get the herbs laying on my drying racks stripped and put away too. I've definitely got my work cut out for me!
