Looking forward to election day

November 2nd, 2020 at 03:49 pm

Let me point out this is not a political post. 

That being said, I'm looking forward to election day because I'm simply tired of all the nasty political advertisement and social media posts. I want to tell them all, go back to kindergarten and learn how to play nice. It's not just one side, it is both sides. Egad. 

In other news, DH picked the last of the herbs and the leeks and green onions. We did a third planting of onions and they are small, but hey, food is food, right? I plan to use some of the onions and leeks and roast them with potatoes and bell peppers as part of our supper tonight. 

We had a nice time on Halloween. We put a bowl of candy in the middle of the driveway and sat in the opening to the garage door and instructed the kids to take two pieces of candy. It was fun seeing the kids dressed up and the kids and parents were very polite. We have quite a bit of candy left over. I have some cookie recipes on using it up, so I may put the candy in the freezer and then make Christmas cookies with the leftover stuff. 

Last week the stock market wasn't very good. Sure hope it rebounds. We haven't spent as much as usual simply because there isn't a lot we need or want. Almost all of my Christmas shopping is done. Just waiting on DH to tell me about a musical CD he wants so I can order it. I may start thinking about addressing Christmas cards in the next few days and will need to buy stamps. I guess I'm old fashioned. I like sending and receiving cards. One of my friend's daughter just started college and I have been mailing her a card each month and her mom visited her dorm room over the weekend and said she has the cards tacked to her bulletin board and was so happy to get "real mail." 

Hope your day is a good one.

    Boy do I feel the same way about this election. I'm afraid though, that even when it is decided the ugliness will continue. At least the endless television ads will cease.

    I still send (and love to receive) Christmas cards too! We recently found Christmas cards from the 40s and 50s at my grandma's house when we were cleaning it out and I'm sending those out this year! I'm so excited! It's always special to get cards in the mail!

    I will be relieved that the political fliers will stop. We've collected a bag a week for the last month of just those and this week it is looking like it will be a bag and a half. Such a waste of paper. And my favorite mobile game has had an ad for a woman I loathe as the only ad for two days. I won't play it again until after the election is over I'm so sick of it.

    I shop throughout the year so most of my shopping is done as well. Though this year most of my gifts will be overbuying from previous years. All new gifts, of course. The niece & nephew have already told us what they want.

    I’m so relieved this election is over. It feels like a burden has been lifted!
