OCTOBER 22, 2019: I know it’s Tuesday but I like Fridays better so can I just declare it Friday and move directly to the week-end?
OCTOBER 23, 2019: Dentist appointment this morning. My teeth are so clean, I don’t think I should ever eat again.
OCTOBER 24, 2019: Today would have been my husband, Don’s, 90th birthday. He’s been gone for six years and I still miss that crazy, wonderful man!

OCTOBER 26, 2019: Friday finally got here so I’m thinking of celebrating by honoring Don’s favorite motto, “Eat your dessert first!” I’m thinking…cheesecake.

OCTOBER 31, 2019: It’s Halloween!! I love seeing the little, neighborhood kids in their super hero and princess costumes. Brings a smile every time the doorbell rings.
