Coffee Chat 10.9.19
Doesn’t it feel like we were just sitting down for September’s coffee chat? My gosh the time is flying by. Anyway, it’s a new month and we’re meeting for coffee! Today I think we’re sitting near a window because it’s sunny outside, but it’s a little too cool to sit outside, so we’re enjoying the sun from indoors. I’ve got a vanilla latte for a treat today. I figure I deserve a treat for all the hard work I’ve been doing to get exercise every day!
We make light chit chat about what’s new. I tell you that I feel like allergy/headcold season is never going to end at our house. We’ve all been coughing, sniffling and sneezing for over a week now. Both Ollie and Nate even ended up home for a day last week, but thankfully I haven’t had to do that. It isn’t the worst cold I’ve ever had, it’s just enough to be annoying which makes me think it may be more allergy related than anything else. The leaves are falling like crazy and a lot of stuff is getting stirred up outside. It’s going to get cold this weekend so maybe some of those spores will die. Until then, Sudafed and Claritin are my friends!
I’m trying to get my mind focused on Halloween. Ollie has a very simple costume request this year, he wants to be a ghost. I found a really cute costume idea where we’d make a tied fleece blanket with a cut out for his head and then he’d wear a hat and I’d paint his face white. I’m thinking this would be nice and warm too. On a walk the other night we met a neighbor a couple of blocks over who said they do a bonfire on Halloween night in their driveway and have some activities for kids, so we are hoping we can stop over there as we go trick or treating this year.
Can you believe they’re talking about the “S-n-o-w” word this weekend? Fortunately it sounds like Northern MN will be getting more of it than us. I am hoping the weather stays somewhat decent on Saturday. I’m throwing a bachelorette party for a friend and we are going to downtown Stillwater to do some wine tasting and have dinner, so I’m hoping the weather cooperates as we may be walking outside a bit.
That’s about all that is new in my world. I listen to you give me a run down of what’s new with you (please do so in the comments if you wish!) and then we part ways to go about our days, but not before a hug (or a fist bump Carissa, ha!) and agree to meet again next month!
