This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
how Halloween is usually the beginning of the end. The end of the year that is. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Most major stores have had Christmas on display for a few weeks already. Of course, the holidays will be different this year.   (Whatever that means)
But Let’s not let anything rob us of the joy we should experience during the upcoming holiday season. Let the decorations flow.  It’s always been a special time of year to lift spirits for many, especially the children. So, let it be. Enjoy!

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Becky being eight months pregnant was in no shape for a conventional Halloween costume. But that didn’t keep her from going to the party. She painted a big yellow circle on an extra-extra-large white T-shirt, dug a pair of red devil horns out of her kids’ Halloween junk pile … and went as a deviled egg.
Joe went to the party covered with many cereal boxes with knives stuck in them.  Can you guess?  He was a serial killer. 

KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN…
you don’t know any of the songs in the top ten.
you think your doctors are looking younger.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
Don’t take no for an answer.  Go for it!
Don’t be too serious.

QUOTES ABOUT GETTING OLD
“Everyone desires to live long, but no one desires to be old.” – Jonathan Swift
“Old age is always fifteen years older than I am.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

STORE FOOD PROPERLY
(Taken from Easy Does It)
Don’t store onions and potatoes together. Moisture from potatoes will cause the onions to sprout.
Store rice in an airtight jar, it will keep for a couple years.
Store oil in a cool, dark location, and it won’t turn rancid as quickly.
Put celery in a paper bag. Leave outside stalks and leaves on until ready to use.

PUNCH LINES
Don’t expect to lose weight in a month of sundaes.

    I love what you said about the upcoming holidays. Yes, they will be “different” somehow, but we shouldn’t get down about it. Just do the best we can to still enjoy. Looking forward to baking and decorating. Been watching Christmas movies on Prime already 🙂
