I decided to run errands before lunch this morning.

I had Sparks banking to do - which is fast, 'cause it's a commercial account, I had to mail the patchwork pieces to my mom, and I had to buy enrollment pins and badges for Sparks.

I also stopped at Party Packagers on the way home to look at Halloween decorations. No reason, I just like Halloween decorations. (I bought nothing.)

I applied for a couple of jobs this afternoon, then - keeping with the Halloween theme - I started making some simple grave markers for my lawn on Halloween. (Just wooden crosses that I will paint white.) I've been thinking about how to improve the decorations for a couple of years, but (surprise!) I procrastinated on doing anything about it. (Also, this is much simpler than some of my ideas.)

Also in anti-procrastination news, I did more shredding and then - since I was right there - I pulled some books off of my bookshelf that I do not need to keep. The Sparks bank always has a book sale for charity going on, and they always need new books. I'll try to remember to bring these in next week.

The other thing I did today was read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society". It was recommended to me twice last week, and then I saw it as a 7 day loan at the library, so I picked it up. It is quite good - definitely worth reading.


  1. I love Halloween stuff too! However, I've been looking for Halloween-themed cookie cutters for weeks now and I've scoured the city, finding nothing!

  2. I'm pretty sure I saw Halloween cookie cutters at Bulk Barn this week. They're the metal ones that are just an outline, not the kind that leave an impression on the cookies.

  3. Those would be perfect for me! I'm totally going to hit up a Bulk Barn!
