Muct to do about nothing!

Wow, I can't get over how fast the weeks fly by now that we are retired.  There is always something to do and we are busy every day.  I'm still getting used to the fact that we can go shopping when everyone else is at work.  Stores are much less crowded and it is so much more fun than rushing around on the weekends trying to get everything done and fighting the crowd at the same time.

The Oklahoma State Fair is going on right now and Donald Trump is going to be there this afternoon.  I WILL NOT!  We heard that there will be some group there protesting their disagreement with Mr. Trump but since Oklahoma is a Republican state I imagine their protests will fall on deaf ears.

We made our airline reservation to fly to Las Vegas November 5th.  We are renting a car and driving straight to Kingman, Arizona which is 90 miles east.  There we will visit my childhood friend and spend two nights then we will drive back to Vegas and spend one night and then fly back home.  

We got such a good deal on the flight and rental car that we couldn't pass up the opportunity to go.  I think Mike will be ok for 3 nights without us or at least we will find out one way or another.

I've started doing some Christmas shopping.  I was looking at the Pioneer Woman's line of dishes and cookware that is surprisingly at Walmart.  Since I don't like giving any of my money to  Walmart I haven't purchased any of it but the colors are so pretty.  I've read some reviews that the quality isn't very good but I guess that is to be expected for the price.  Doubt I'll be getting any of it.

I'm wanting to go to some garage sales in search of old wooden frames.  A friend of mine has been making the prettiest picture frame Christmas wreaths out of them.   

Ron and I may go to some sales tomorrow.  I found some frames at Hobby Lobby to paint but they were $19.00.  Don't want to spend that much.

The dog is driving me off the computer.  She keeps standing under the desk panting her bad breath right up my nose.  She has old doggie breath!  I give up!
