Jill and her daughter, Sarah, and Jill's sister, Carole, all showed up around 11a. They brought a deli sandwich, some cookies and pumpkin bread. They worked hard and finished putting the plants in the greenhouse in an hour and a half - a job I normally work on the whole month of October.

This is a big load off my mind!
They did ALL the plants? Where do you keep the Hoya'?

I almost never leave the house.
Only to buy the occasional potato or visit the post office.
I got some nice fossils yesterday, this trilobite molt is from Utah.

That 3 line message just educated me profoundly.. I had to google “ trilobite “ and I learned that the horseshoe crab is one of the close living relatives.. and the most complete and abundant early fossil record of moulting belongs to the trilobite who is known for discarding their carapace 2-3 times a year...also, that no living one has ever been documented.... INTERESTING ;-)

Maybe do some pumpkin carving (pumpkin hack job) with the brats today
We make a big deal out of pumpkin carving every year ( I LOVE HALLOWEEN ) but this year may be awkward so I suggested that we paint our pumpkins instead... my son immediately piped up and said “ but mom, since big sissy can’t carve her’s, I’ll carve one for her.” 💕💕💕. He’s pretty special! I think we are going to do both!

Thanks I was wondering what area those nerves were. The tip of my amputated forearm hurts 24/7 like when you hit your thumb with a hammer. It's all because of the nerves.
We will pray Jess dosen't have to much discomfort in the future.
Halloween party will be fun.
No one should have to deal with that..I pray for you too Ray and Rose too.
Wish y’all could crash my party too;-)

He doesn’t have any filters... whatever he thinks, is what comes out of his mouth... my niece crocheted him a Frankenstein bear... when she gave it to him, he immediately told her that it was “ just kinda creepy” lol... I tried to explain to him later that he may have hurt her feelings because she worked so hard on it and he said “ I didn’t mean to and I’ll tell her I’m sorry, but I just can’t look at that bear... we don’t have to tell her, right?” KIDS ARE PRICELESS!
