Halloween

Larry put a couple of plastic skeletons out as well as several hours ghosts.  When I took my flower boxes apart, I put the dichondra silver falls in the flower bed in hopes the seeds will germinate next spring. Larry hung  swath around the shoulders of one of the skeletons like a scarf.

Early Voting

I voted early last year but still had to wait in line a long time. This year I decided to check the parking lot. If I saw vacancies, I’d vote today. It was pretty early because I checked before going to volunteer at the hospital. Only five people were in the hall ahead of me so I didn’t have to wait long. I talked to a woman at the hospital who said she never votes. I told her I was glad when a lot of people vote because the people we elect have a better chance of representing all of us. She said she would think about it.

Shingles Vaccine

Several years ago I had a shingles vaccine that was expensive, live virus, and 60% effective. Now there is another vaccine that is in two parts. It is supposed to be 90% effective. It is ok to take if I’ve already had the other one. I asked my doctor and he recommended I have it. So I did. My arm is sore from the shot, but I’m glad to have better protection against shingles.

Scrubs

I bought two pairs of scrub pants today. They have lots of deep pockets and an elastic waist with a drawstring. I’ve got one pair hemmed. Together they cost $31. and change. I still have to hem the other pair.

More Winter Prep

Today I cut off the angel wing begonias until I cut my pinky. After I got a bandaid on it and held it up with pressure so it would stop bleeding, I just broke the rest off.

Cool Enough

Today was cool enough I could work in my little greenhouse. It needed some organizing so I could plant cuttings in potting soil. I have a lot to do to take down the baskets and flower boxes. The annuals need to come out before frost. So I have a lot to do now that it has cooled off.

Allergies

I forgot to take a benedryl last night and my allergy nose spray. Today I sneezed and blotted my dripping nose until it was raw. When I got home I went straight for a daytime allergy pill. This afternoon was better. I won’t forget my benedryl and nose spray tonight!
