I am in the midst of nine days away from work, between vacation and the holiday. I've so far been working on getting the yard and house ready for winter. We've been lucky with a very mild fall so far, but we've had hard frosts the last few nights now and the daytime temperatures have turned much more seasonable. Still, no snow yet, which is always good news to me. My wife's car is in the shop, today and yesterday, which has put a small damper on my time off so far in that I have been getting up early, like a normal work day, and driving her to and from work. Still worth it, though. I'll still have a few days I can sleep in. I think we're just going across town for a few hours for Thanksgiving on Thursday, otherwise not travelling. I haven't even thought of the Christmas holiday yet, though it will be here quickly so I shall be forced to soon. As for today, I want to get out, get some food and maybe shop a little. I really have no agenda for the rest of today except picking up my wife and getting her car back. Nice.
