Can you believe October is almost gone?

I am kinda skipping over Halloween this year because I am sooooo ready for Thanksgiving! 

Sorry Halloween I loves ya, but Thanksgiving is just calling my name.....loudly! 

Not that I want to hurry the year along. No way! Now that we have a grand daughter, I want to enjoy each and every minute we can squeeze in with her, and still want more!

I have a serious question for you.

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? 

OK, so last year I was determined to start early so I could get it done and out of the way.

We have just been hit by the first of what the weather forecasts as three large storms to hit us. I guess it is remnants of typhoon Songda? I hadn't heard anything about it, until I heard it was sending things my way!
