|Front of Card
I made a Halloween card to send to my daughter, using items I had on hand. I'm calling it an inside-out card, because the front of the card simply says Trick or Treat? I used a stencil for the lettering.
The inside of the card was decorated with scrapbooking paper and sequins which I glued to the card:

I also made a pocket from some of the Halloween themed paper to hold the check I included in the card, the "treat":
I mailed the card on Friday, taking it to the post office to do so, anticipating it would be delivered today. But, it seems the post office has decided to play a trick - daughter hasn't received the card, yet. I guess I should have mailed it on Thursday, instead.
Daughter sent me this picture of her in her costume that she put together using items she had on hand:

She's a strawberry! She cut out the "seeds" from white felt and glued them to a red sweater that she had; the green bow on her hair is the "stem". :) She said she was the only person in costume at her office and someone thought she was a watermelon (wrong color seeds!) and someone else thought she was Minnie Mouse (no! Minnie has polka dots!)
Today was a sunny day. I did a load of laundry, dusted my bedroom, started on the paperwork, cleaned out the fridge, cleaned the litter box, swept the bathroom floor, emptied the waste baskets throughout the house, and took the trash cans to the curb for pick up tomorrow. I will do the day's dishes a bit later.
I didn't hear from the pharmacy, today. No call saying my prescription was ready. I really didn't expect to hear from them today, anyway, especially if they had to order the medication. I'll give them one more day and then call the doctor's office if needed.
I reviewed my October goals for a balanced life and came to the conclusion that I did OK, overall, although there were some areas that didn't get as much attention as I would have liked. Hope to focus on those areas in November.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter was able to come up with a costume using items she had on hand
- A sunny day
- A working washing machine
- A clean house
- Keeping in touch with family and friends
Tuesday's To Do List:
- Bring trash cans in
- Office work
- More paperwork/filing
- Put away dried laundry
- Do another load of laundry
- Work on November goals
How was your Halloween?
