Happy Halloween – Brrrr

It was 33 degrees this morning when I let Stanley out. 33! I don’t know if that broke a record in San Antonio, but I suspect it did. We normally don’t get autumn until around December, but last year was unusual. So was this morning.

Speaking of Stanley, I lost the war last night. He was in his little bed and I patted my mattress and said those fateful words, “Oh, come on, silly.” Consequently, I had a bed warmer attached to me all night. That dog gets hot. I had to move him a few times, but he was always right back against me. I know, by doing that, that I’ve acquired a permanent companion. At least during the colder months. However, he did get tired of the togetherness around four, jumped down and went back to his bed.

My son is thrilled about the colder weather because he can wear his new Green Bay Packers coat. It’s almost like his previous Packers coat, but the Packer G on the back is huge. Since he works with Dallas Cowboy people I’ve suggested that toning down the bragging when the Packers beat the Cowboys might be wise. They’re having a good year so far. The Packers, not the Cowboys. (Although I admit I don’t know how they’re doing.)

We won’t be giving out candy again this year. First of all, I can’t be trusted with a bowlful of candy. Secondly, Stanley would go nuts. So, I will turn off the porch light and we’ll adjourn to the back of the house. Be safe, whatever you do. And have fun doing it.

  1. It was snowing and cold. I did message our one neighbor with a kid that I had something for her, but otherwise built a fire and snuggled in.

  2. Chocolate will be given at our place!!!!! This year I dressed as a trick or treater . All you need for this costume is a trick or treat bag . If you wear a costume that distracts from the fact the you dressed up as a trick or treater . Next year I am going as my twin who acts just like me and but does not exist

  3. We’re not giving out candy, either.

    It was colder there than it was in Maryland. Though, we finally have a cold front coming through tonight.

  4. It’s pouring and should be storming by the time for the trick or treaters. some areas are having it tomorrow but not mine. My daughter was to have me give out candy at her house so her husband can go out with her and their 2 year old. Which means my husband has to give out candy at our house. Something he hasn’t done in 20 years and something he doesn’t want to do (sigh).I think he has plans of leaving a bunch of candy for the kids to take one (hmmmmm). Anyway, my daughter hasn’t made up her mind yet.

  5. Yay for Stanley! he will keep you warm and then too hot! enjoy your Stanley!
    we live out in the boonies so we never get trick or treaters. take good care

  6. For the last 2 years, no trick or treaters for me….I miss all that so much. Taking my kids when they were little was always fun. Seeing the little ones and the costumes always made me smile.
