Happy Homemaker 2017-11-13

Well I knew I would skip sometimes and I did last week as it was a frantic week.  I usually work 4 days a week with Mondays off, but had to work on Monday (took Friday off instead), which upset my schedule.  I had taken notes of what I wanted to post about, so will add more this week.  I had Thursday off (2 exams at the hospital - nothing to worry about) and Friday, so it's been a nice 5 day weekend.

Halloween - we got 299 Halloweeners (road was closed with animation in the street).  I would have probably needed an extra 100 bags of candy.  It was fun to see all the small ones.

Here is a picture of me at work for Halloween

On Nov 4th we visited the Haunted Village D'antan with both children and their girlfriend / boyfriend, my sis and brother in law- it was nice but the wait to see the different houses was way too long.  we were there from 6:45 to 10:30... at 0C... when you wait in line it gets cold!  We all slept over at my daughter's appartment.  We had brought our inflatable mattresses, blankets and pillows.  My parents joined us for breakfast next morning.
We also got to visit with my uncle who is in a facility (he has Alzheimer's).  He did recognize me.

Last Saturday (nov 11) invited a few of my husband's cousins and their wives over for supper, as well as brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  I had made a big batch of ragoût de boulettes, some veggie soup. Appetizers was cheese, olives, crackers and grapes.  dessert were frozen profiteroles.  We played mime during the evening.

The weather
Today is a cold - 8 this morning, should warm up to 2 C, I think.  Around 1 to 4C all week.

On my reading pile
The game - Anders de la Motte.  Will read book 2 as I finished book 1 last weekend
Coup de Pouce magazine - Christmas edition.

On my TV
It - from Stephen King (the old version)
I'm thinking it's time to watch more Christmas movies.  Regular programs are in their last week before the Holidays

Looking around the house
