I think our beautiful odd warm fall has ended, this week is cooler with rain forecast throughout. It's a holiday week so everything ends up a needing more attention since there are liable to be more people out. I went to Costco for Senior Shopping (from 9-10am Monday through Friday). As I left just before 10 I was a gauntlet of people with their carts lined up around the store ready to load up for the holidays. My treat to myself is several cases of sparkling water. I should have gotten sugar and butter but forgot, so maybe tomorrow morning at the 24-hour Winco near me, they're usually quiet around 6am and they have beautiful produce. Everything is super-sized at Costco - part of the haul was a 3.5 pound bag of squash (yellow and zucchini) so I'll plan to make some zucchini bread for the holidays. The small citrus clementines come in a 5 pound bag so I'm going to give half to my ex; I have trouble working my way through a 3 pound bag because they don't keep very long. I really need to load up on frozen vegetables or blanch and freeze what I bring home and just not go out for several weeks. This COVID-19 is racing through the county.
A friend texted to ask about getting family photos somewhere outside, but I think the overcast days won't help, so maybe some interesting backdrop (the exterior of a museum, a library, etc.). It's been a rough year for documenting special events - last year she said she hoped that this spring I could take photos of her daughter before her senior year prom, and that never happened. If I can help them with the family photo I'm happy to do it.
My next door neighbor is smart, I see his holiday lights are up already while it was warm. I'll put up some strings of the little LED lights in the juniper this afternoon.
