As I was shopping last week for small pumpkins for the centerpieces for the women’s retreat,
I noticed that somehow Kroger decided to kick out Halloween early,
skip over Thanksgiving completely
and move right into Christmas.
|This is live greenery, people! |
Did I mention it’s mid-October?
I had a lengthy conversation with my friend Beth about not being able to find Halloween candy still.
It’s been relegated to a small 20% off bin at Kroger.
And not the good stuff either.
Seriously, who has NOT already eaten all their Halloween candy??
Don’t the powers that be at Kroger realize that there is more money
in procrastination than planning ahead?
Have they met America?
No one wants live greenery in mid-October!!
We want pumpkins.
I finally did find pie baking pumpkins at another grocery store for what I thought was $1.00. As I was checking out, I realized it was $1.00 a pound! And I picked the biggest ones I could find.
Meanwhile, across town at Cuco’s,
[That just sounded like, “Meanwhile, back at the Bat Cave,” in my head.]
Carisa ran into Plain Clothes Santa at her Mexican restaurant.
She said she asked permission to take his picture, but I’m getting a different story from this:
|I’m getting more of a “Nooooo!” than a “Ho! Ho! Ho!"|
I asked what Plain Clothes Santa ordered but Carisa left before she could find out.
I’m thinking he’s a chimichanga kind of guy.
Get it? Chimney? Chimneychanga??
Sorry, it’s been a long month.
“Yep. Right on the curb."
|No, I will NOT be swiping this chair from the curb.|
But the mint green seat and lid are a nice touch, don’t you think?
The only thing that would’ve made this picture more perfect was if Carisa were sitting on it.
