Day After Halloween

It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon. I'm in the north room, enjoying sunshine and blue sky, and getting a little organizing done. As soon as I wrap up this post, I'll be joining the rest of the family, in the living room.

On the way, I'll give Giol, #1 daughter's rabbit, a celery stick.

It's the first day after daylight savings time ended for the year - so I'm enjoying (experiencing, anyway) the government-mandated jet lag we're treated to each March and October. (More at "Daylight Saving Time Strikes Again" Apathetic Lemming of the North (March 8, 2009))

Last night was Halloween. Not as many trick-or-treaters have been coming around in recent years, for whatever reason. One youngster came in the traditional sheet with two holes cut in it: and at least one set of teenagers came without costumes. When they found out we were handing out money, they told #3 daughter that they should come back with costumes, for more.

It's not that we were giving away large amounts of cash. We'd grab a small handful of pennies and nickles for each visitor. The total couldn't have been more than around 15¢ or 20¢ each. Even so, the typical response was something like, "oh boy, money!"

I've missed grilling this weekend: whatever I've got isn't all that bad, but it wouldn't be prudent to stand outside by a grill. Fun, yes. A good idea, no.

Well, it's time to feed the rabbit and join the family.
