No Halloween for me this year. Bah humbug.
Seriously, I just can't get into it this year. Here we go on the roller coaster of holidays.
Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas then . . . . the two coldest and dreariest months of the year, January and February.
I don't know why I'm feeling this way. Maybe it's because I feel I'm being rushed into "the holidays." I used to love Halloween. Maybe if I was invited to a party of two I would feel different. Maybe not. I don't travel at night anyway. To tell you the truth, I would rather watch a few episodes of "The Good Wife" at the Tipton Cinema than venture out onto Route One and take my chances of having one of those aggressive drivers running into me. Maybe I'm just getting old.
Every day Bill and I go out for a ride, maybe two. Today we went to Milton and the Veggie Stand That Has No Name. I love fresh vegetables. I brought a pumpkin (naturally), green and red pepper, red potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini squash and an onion. Today is probably the last time I'll be able to get fresh veggies this year. Then it's off to Food Lion and the two week old shipped across the country tasteless veggies.
I seem to be in a mood today. Don't know why. Maybe it's because of the onslaught of shorter days. It's 6:44 PM now and DARK outside. Each day gets a little shorter, that's always depressing.
SAD: Seasonal Affectional Disorder
Man oh man, I have to do a more upbeat blog tomorrow.
