Monday Musings - October 22, 2018




1. The temperature was an exhilarating and way-too-cold 33 degrees this morning. The end of October is clearly in sight as the morning temperatures continue to dip closer to freezing.

2. Big projects provide a way to spend lot of time working to improve the quality of the homestead.

3. The sound of the furnace blowing warm air into the house is certainly different from the mornings where cooler air was desired. The cat likes to sit on the register to gather the warmth.

4. Family Weekend NFL Results:

   Ravens (4-3) lost to Saints (5-1) 23-24
   Cowboys (3-4) lost to Redskins (4-2) 17-20
   Redskins (4-2) defeated Cowboys (3-4) 20-17
   Steelers (3-2-1) did not play due to Bye

5. Why is the warmest place in the house the restroom?


6. The thought of heading out into Monday morning traffic coupled with the cold is not a pleasant thought. the Parkway is already jammed!

7. The colors of Autumn in the trees do provide a short period of joy before the dark days settle in for the Winter.

8. For my friends and family who are counting down with me, 9 down and 35 to go!

9. Congratulations to Nicole and Mike and the boys for fostering their third puppy. She is a cutie and I am sure she will be adopted quickly.
