It is going to be a quiet one here, which is pretty normal for us.
The Grandkids don't live close enough to trick or treat here. Just once I'd like to see them in their Halloween outfits! I think about going to their houses and then remember the hubbub of getting ready to go treating or to parties. They don't need us in the way. So much is packed into so little time, and then it is over. Thank goodness for digital cameras.
Jim survived his rotator cuff surgery (I think I typed cup last time - even though I KNOW it is cuff. Sometimes I wonder about me. Actually most of the time I wonder about me). Anyway, he is doing really good. We had the cutest nurse after the surgery. She was 4 foot nothing tall and liked to laugh. I'm not good at guessing ages, but she had to be close to 70. She was refreshingly having fun with her job. With the name of Mary Margaret, I would be she was a good ol' Catholic like me.
I have an ear Dr. appointment on Tuesday. I still can't hear, but the pain is gone - so we are making progress. At Church this morning, as I was walking down the aisle to go to Communion, next to me was this child of age 10 or so. She had hearing aids in both ears. I wanted to give her a hug. Why did I freak out so over the thought of losing my hearing - and only in one ear at that. It certainly is not the end of the world and could have been (and has been) a whole lot worse. Anyway, I've given myself an attitude adjustment and what will be will be. It will be no big deal. Enough on that.
We are experiencing the most unbelievably gorgeous weather here. It is time for me to finish this post, grab Jim (gently by his left arm) and head outside for a walk. I'll bring my camera along and who knows - maybe I'll return with some photos to post.
Sunday Blessings to all!
