I realize I do not have children... but Halloween is on October 31st, a Sunday this year. Our subdivision had all the houses vote if we wanted the children to trick-or-treat on Saturday or Sunday; the reasoning... Halloween is on a school night. Thankfully, our subdivision is smart enough to vote for Sunday.
I am sorry, but I have issues with this and apparently several towns in our area have just decided to move Halloween to Saturday. What happens when Halloween falls on a Wednesday, are they just going to move it again. I will get off the soapbox now, it just irks me!

This year, I wanted the dogs to have costumes for Halloween... why, you ask. I have no idea, I just think they are cute when dressed up. Being the budget conscience shopper that I am, I waited until all the costumes were on sale, not a good plan.
The first set of costumes were too small, the next set were too big. However, I did snap a few pictures before I gave up and took them back to the store. ENJOY....
Shen is a football in honor of Doodle's fantasy football team.
Shen was really not feeling the football idea.
Ling is the cheerleader.
Doesn't Ling just look thrilled at this idea of mine!
I am sure you can tell what the first list consists of, stuff that I would like completed around the house. The Doodle-do list is things that Doodle wants to work on. Lately Doodle completed a project that I just have to share, I was so very impressed and it has allowed for more organization.
Car Care, Plant Care, Holiday Decorations, they all have a home.
We were trying for color coordinating bins, that just got to be too much!
I know I promised a great picture yesterday but I did not even turn on the computer last night. Today I have been working on another research paper... trade between China and the U.S. I must say this is not a terribly interesting topic for me, I have struggled today.
In light of the struggle, I thought I would share pictures of Mo, we dressed her for Halloween a couple of years ago, it was comical to say the least. Enjoy!The funniest part of this day was Mo running down the street with Doodle and I giving chase.
This has been one of the longest weeks of my life! School has me down, I am tired, tired of reading, tired of writing, tired of researching, just plan tired. Additionally, it has been warm, too warm for the middle of October and that has me down as well. Doodle will say rainbow is down. It is from the Jimmy Dean sausage commercial where the sun has to feed the rainbow so she will make colors again. Please tell me you know what I am talking about! Anyway, rainbow is down.
I cannot even find a fun sunny picture to share, well part of that is the fact I am at work and should be working. I will find something tonight and add.
Since I have been dreaming about Cuba (paper topic) and the fact that I wrote my paper in Dutch (which I cannot read nor write), I thought watching the sunrise and getting a great picture would help clear the mind of Dutch.
Our house sits up on a slight hill and we actually have rather nice sunrises and sunsets, especially when there are clouds or fog, which of course is not today. So instead of a blinding picture of the sun... enjoy the one from the beach, where I wish I was! One of the things I love about the fall besides the cooler weather is that I can watch the sun rise, at least on the weekends while I am home. There is something about the day just starting, what happened yesterday is past and before you is another chance to make a difference. Or in my case, another fun filled day of reading.
It's official... 8 weeks completed of school! Only 8 more weeks to go before the end of the semester. The majority of my grades have been "B's". Thus, I am: Busy Beat Down Bitchy I am no longer: Balanced Bored Beautiful However, I have done my: Best I crave my: Bed
We finally got around to starting the fall decorating this weekend and what a perfect weekend it was for it. The highs were in the low 70's with a nice crisp breeze. We are planning on adding a few more pumpkins and some corn stalks.
We also put a few decorations on the dining room table.
The mornings have been crisp, the afternoons manageable and all is right with the world again. We are putting out our fall decorations this weekend and for the first time trying an apple cobbler. I have decided to make Michelle Obama's Apple Cobbler. I only hope mine turns out looking and tasting as good!
