Picture of Bush and his sidekick, McCain. All dressed up for Halloween.

I have just baked a chocolate fudge cake which I am going to decorate for Halloween with white frosting and lots of little yellow pumpkins. Halloween is tonight, so be safe!

Highs in the 80s for next few days, lots of sunshine. We are enjoying it while it lasts.

Beautiful day here in Deming. Our lows this next week will be about 40F maybe even some 30s. I have been able to be outside to read since our daytime highs have been in the low 80s.

I've been watching the candidates on the Campaign Trail this morning and notice all the pretty colors in N.C. We have a few trees turning, but it isn't quite the same this far south. Our Plum tree is a pretty red and our silk trees are yellow.

We have added a scarecrow to our outside Fall decorations. This morning is really chilly with a breeze and just now 54F, brrr. Glad I have my books to read. We will be lucky to reach 70F today after a high of 86F yesterday. Well, I have some work to do around the house also, inside stuff, so that's ok. Time to hang some curtains, lol. I add some warm colors for winter.

Take care all, talk with you later.

Cold Night!

There was ice in the birdbath this morning. Our temp was 34F and the coldest of the year. The temp tonight should be 36F and then start warming up. We got into the 70s with lots of sunshine today, so all is well. We won't get cold days until the middle of November. Always cold at Thanksgiving. Can you believe that our time changes soon and it will start getting dark earlier. I really don't like going back to standard time.

Guess I need to make a trip to the library tomorrow as I am on my last book. I enjoy reading at bedtime, it helps me go to sleep.

We had spaghetti with italian meatballs for dinner, yummy. I ate too much. Floyd had apple pie for dessert, I just couldn't eat any.

McCain - "done"

I see that McCain has given up on New Mexico, Colorado and Iowa. I think he is just tired and has run out of things to say. Palin today was in Nevada and all she did was talk about Biden. How can you win when all you do is put down the other side?? Lots of early voting here in NM this year.

I made pizza yesterday and have tons left, so guess what, dinner will be a repeat, lol.

Lovely weather here. A little on the warm side but starting tomorrow, it should be in the 70s, more like Fall. I'm going to have some homemade chicken noodle soup for lunch, yum!

Fall weather!

I have already voted by mail. BE SURE TO VOTE!!

Im not really complaining yet, lol. Today is an especially Fall kind of day, cloudy, some rain, coolish. I must go to the library today, that is the only thing on my agenda. Tomorrow is another Debate Day. I enjoy the Debates because my guy always does good. He acts like he knows where he's at and what's going on, unlike the other guy, THAT ONE, lol.

From what some of the folks are saying on the news, the fact that Obama is doing so well has come as a surprise to them, why???? People want change and he represents change.

Thursday already!

I mean this month is going to be over before we know it. I received my ballot in the mail this morning. I like to vote by mail, it is easier. The Gallup daily tracking poll has Barack ahead by 11 since the last debate. He has gained after each debate, lol.

Pretty Monday

The weather here is perfect. The stock market is plunging. Hope none of you have pension funds that are being devalued by the day.

Tomorrow is another Presidential debate. I don't think these things change anyone's opinion. Republicans always think they do best and Democrats always think that they do best. Since more voters are Democrats, it usually works out better for them. I know I am biased, I just can't stand McCain.

I hear that the economists are basically blaming the mortgage loan industry for all the credit problems, say that had a domino effect on banks, etc. Well, house prices rose to ridiculous levels, so we should have seen it coming.

Political musings

Tonight is the Biden/Palin debate. They both just make a lot of "gaffes", lol. Joe of course is older and wiser, but he still says a lot of stuff that is nonsense. It seems as if he has always done this, so no one pays much attention. Palin was so nervous with Couric, she just has to do better. After watching those clips many times on tv, I actually began to feel sorry for her. She must have had a really bad day and couldn't concentrate. She just blanked out!

Joe can be very funny at times.:) He just says anything that pops into his head. I don't think he takes debates very seriously and that is probably best.

Our weather is perfect. Beautiful sunshine, cool nights, perfect. Seems as if our area may benefit from the NRG crisis, several different solar panel companies have taken out leases on lots of acres around here for future solar farms. New Mexico already benefits from large federal land leases that are used for potential oil exploration. Keeps NM solvent, lol.

We just returned from shopping at our local supermarket, Peppers. Once a month they have a really good sale, so we took advantage of it today, and got some bargains.

Well, this debate has got to be fun, so I plan to sit back with my diet coke and enjoy it. I hope neither of these people take the whole thing too seriously.
