In with the new.

It's dark and rainy and windy here atm - but warm. Vary Halloweenish.

I have to clean my gutters out this weekend (or maybe not) but if the weather is dry tomorrow or Sunday I think i might drag the hubby up one of our little mountains. Fall hikes are so pretty (and bug free).

Does anyone have their costumes prepared yet?

Oh right it's almost Halloween, that reminds me I need to go buy my mom a birthday present.

I looks like we're going to be able to recycle last year's costumes for the most part, with maybe a modification or two. Which is good because the budget is stretched as tight as it can go right now. Things get better next month once the final student loan payments are made, but until then hotdogs and top ramen is good eating. Smiley: lol

Also, my Seahawks already won this week so I'm going to have to come up with something else to fret about on Sunday. Maybe I can take the kids somewhere crowded where they can disappear briefly from my sight, run around in circle, throw tantrums, etc just to balance out the universe.

Carving a pumpkin at a friend's house tonight. Or maybe I'll just do what I did last year, get lazy, and put a face on it with a marker.

My husband and I are going as Captain Picard and Dr. Beverly Crusher for Halloween. We have the respective hair requirements (well, I do now - chopped off four inches yesterday), and these days you can just order the right shirts off Amazon for $30, add black pants and shoes, and be done.

Giving platelets tomorrow. I ordered the 2nd season of Adventure Time to watch during the procedure. Smiley: laugh

Four and a half hours of work to go today... with no actual work left to do. (Seriously, I asked my boss and she's got nothing.) I've been studying for my CAPM exam all morning. Smiley: bah

Halloween Avatars go!

Lets see, this weekend is looking sunny but cold, so I might take the helicopter and assorted quadcopters and at least one aeroplane fleet out for a spin. The Trex 450 isn't quite finished yet, but everything else is ready to fly.

Probably will continue operation "print parts for christmas presents" Which seems like it would be way early, but so far the things people have indicated they thought were cool are all the ones that take 8 years worth of printing time to finish... It's getting there.

I might work on the mill a bit if I get time and it isn't too cold in the Garage. I really do need to get a ceiling mounted ceramic heater for in there at some point.

How about radiant floor heat?

Seems that's what folks are currently using out here for their garages and workshops.

I'd need to be able to park my car on it still occasionally, which means embedding it in concrete and matching the edge of the driveway. To do that i'd have to remove the epoxy floor coating I already installed , and then redo it when it was done. it's a possibility, but it would be spendy, and I already have a ceiling outlet.

Next house will have space for a dedicated workshop.

Not sure what we're doing. Might go out to eat, might go on a hay ride, most likely we'll end up doing nothing, haha.

My parents house finally sold, so today I'm going clothes shopping with daughters. They both got seasonal jobs with same company and will pay me back for any new clothes I buy them. I may treat myself to a new pair of dress boots, since Jonwin was suggesting I could use some.

Tomorrow Jonwin got the day off, so I can finally go to the MD Renn Faire, on it's last weekend. I'm not sure if I'll wear my garb or just go in street clothes for the day. I may get new garb, while I'm there.

Sunday will be spent recovering from all the walking I'll be doing in my new Clark's clogs.

For all you folks that wish to cut entitlements, you will be happy to know that until I spend down to under $2000, I won't be getting anything from the government. Most of the money I'm getting will be spent on repairs to the house. Meanwhile I will be making do on what I inherited.

Tonight we're going to Biketober Fest to gawp at the bikers and get some grub. Then back to our empty apartment to drink. Tomorrow we have to go back to Honda and resign the paperwork on our car to reflect our new "permanent" address. Sunday we'll do laundry and veg, I imagine. Though vegging out is a lot harder when you have no couch, no bed (just an air mattress), no TV, and only a table and chairs in your apartment.

I finished King's "Dr. Sleep" today, so I may have to download "The Shining" and read that again.

There's a Halloween/Safety event in town on Sunday, we'll probably go. Thom will either be Elmo, or reuse his Captain America costume.

Today I managed to get some more kayaking in, probably the last of the season. My first try was at a new location which turned out to be very windy and choppy, so I went back to my local spot for an hour or so.

I'm busily teaching my son to walk like a zombie because he'll be a monkey for Halloween and, you know, zombie monkey. Hannah has decided she wants to be Black Widow from The Avengers for Halloween, so that's apparently happening. She also told me she needed a date today. I told her that Nexa and I were pretty permissive parents but that eight years old might be a little early for that sort of thing. To which she replied "Look, it rhymes, date...eight. I need a date here!" Then we walked to a playground and she chased boys around a 1/4 mile track for two hours. Boys run slowly...I hope. Or they want her to catch them. My point is I'm old and I have an onion tied to my belt.

No fatalities this time, I did end up phnching myself in the chin when my release malfunctioned due to a broken spring. One of the friends I was with had an arrow explode on his bow as he was shooting it, and apperently part of the back of it that shot off knicked the back of my leg, because when i got to my car later on, I had a nice little cut that managed to soak my sock with some blood and everything. It's an indoor range so there wasn't much else that would have done that, so techncially I took a piece of an arrow to the knee yesterday I guess?

Still had fun. Also I found a Doinker quadraflex target stabilizer for $50, which is about a third what a used one retails for ususually, so I can finally replace my frankenstabilizer that I made years ago!

Just remember that if you make jokes about it now you'll have to downvote yourself.
