Welcome to my favorite month! I think the only thing I don't like about November is that the heating bill starts to crank up. I found that double rainbow while looking out my kitchen window doing dishes. It stayed for about 10 minutes and was gone.
Halloween weekend was nice. Quincy thoroughly enjoyed himself and I was amazed how quickly he caught on to the concept of trick or treating. We went to all the houses that were handing out candy on both sides of the street of our block. After two houses he was knocking on the doors himself and holding his orange pumpkin bucket out. Although he often tried to give candy back to people and wanted into their houses, he did great. A couple times he dropped the bucket and we had to stop and wait for him to pick all the candy up. My Dad hung out on Halloween and we ordered VIP pizza, watched Land of the Lost and I whipped up some homemade caramel corn that was fantastic! We couldn't stop eating it! It was really that good.
I forgot to take pictures of Quincy in his costume, but he'll be dressing up one more time for 'Grandma Airplane' this week, so I'll get another chance.
Demolition was on the agenda yesterday. The wall and ceiling in Q's closet that had the roof leak needed to be torn out. Gross! I swear the old insulation looked like bloated mummies. Two layers of lath board and plaster later we hit the outside wall. The wood under the slanted ceiling needs to be replaced from the outside next weekend when the roofers come. You could seriously punch a hole with your fist right out onto the roof it's that rotten in that spot. Oh god I miss renting sometimes, but watching the roofers next weekend is going to be fun!
