Tidbit Tuesday

Just another unedited, sloppy installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

Still have a few mums and geraniums blooming but that’s about it for the garden. Luckily my bathroom cactus has a few buds so there will soon be more flowers in my life again. Still haven’t finished the garden clean up but I’m no longer stressing out about it. Whatever gets done, gets done.

Had a pleasant dinner with the girl, I had been a bit worried that political talk might mar it -she is an ardent anti-Trump fan and my hubby is for Trump, but there wasn’t too much said. I was disappointed that her boyfriend had to work so I still haven’t gotten to meet him. We’ll try again on Thanksgiving since he doesn’t spend it with family.

Finally got all the Halloween stuff put away – feeling a bit bad because I bought new decorations while I’m in the midst of trying to declutter. However, I do love Halloween and we didn’t have many outside decorations. Plus it was something the boy really wanted and it made him happy to arrange everything.

I’m on my fourth day of a ten day detox program that my doctor prescribed. It hasn’t been as bad as I had thought but I will be heading into the three days that are really restricted and that could change my mind.  Not sure how much I really believe this will help but hopefully it won’t hurt anything. I was sure I would be dying for sugar but so far it hasn’t been bad at all. In fact at the coffee hour after church I really didn’t struggle at all with skipping the cookies and having some fruit. Hopefully this will help me get a handle on my sugar consumption because I can’t go on eating candy as a meal – just too many bad results from that habit.

I’m off to try and do some decluttering – I’ll be back Friday with my results. Until then have a great day!

Finally went out and voted. I really struggled this year – not too impressed with the candidates. It is a shame that there weren’t better choices. I worry that no matter who is elected there will be problems moving forward. It seems that people are so much nastier this time around.

I didn’t get nearly as much done out in the garden as I could have. Looks like there will lots to clean up come spring. Need to come up with a plan to get things to a more manageable state.

Need to go through the Halloween stuff and see what is worth keeping and what I might want to get rid of.  I know there are some costumes that should go but it is like pulling teeth to get the boy to get rid of them. We’ll see if I can make some progress this time around. We ended up getting quite a few new decorations which I’m going to have to find room to store.

Not much else to post  this time around – I’ll be back later in the week with the next challenge report.
