Welcome to Standard Time!
Well that was an interesting weekend…
On the down side my knee hurt more the past two days than it has since hurting it. A call to schedule a doctor appoint will occur today.
On the up side there was much fire!
On Friday night I lured Bonnie over with fire and beer. We had a lovely night just hanging about looking at the fire.
Saturday, Halloween, I had asked Bonnie, Betsy, and our friend Wendy around for a fire, drinks, and some pizza that I’d heat up in the oven. All was going swimmingly until around 4pm when I was headed back into the house and saw that all of my lights were off. A power outage? Two hours before guests are to arrive? You have to be shitting me! (at least that’s what I thought). After a bunch of hemming and hawing I decided that the show must go own… Besides, I have a 1950s gas oven that requires no electricity so I could cook the pizzas, and modern day ice packs so I could keep the drinks cold. In the end the night was a success, and Georgia Power was able to restore electricity before the night was done.
Yesterday, I went over to Betsy’s where she had a Day of the Dead gathering. I sat around her fire pit, saw saw some people I’ve not seen since the beginning of COVID, and drank mimosas. The only oddity of the day was that I believe Bonnie and I were the only two of nine people who were drinking alcohol. It’s like it was a Bizarro World version of a gathering at Betsy’s. 😂
Today I need to crack on with chores, the biggest of which is focusing on my job. I have a scheduled visit from the HVAC people this morning, which is good since I have yet to try the heater so I may use it for the first time while they are here. Currently I am baking a casserole, which is heating the main floor nicely. I will probably miss the Moonlite hash tonight because my knee hurts too much, and the rest of my body might appreciate a night of no alcohol consumption as well.
Hope you had a happy and healthy Halloween weekend.
