We woke up to snow in Madison. Balt was happy, I was not. I bundled up for a walk and decided not to wash my hair so that I could walk in the freezing cold and pull it back for my costume. I knew I would go swimming at lunch and wash it then. It worked out nicely. I had lots of candy to hand out to kids and the day was mellow even with all the kids dressed up and eating candy. In the art department, only Josh, Grace and I dressed up. I kept it pretty low key this year-- nothing too extravagant. I spent a year watching every Star Trek series episode as well as most of the movies, so I knew I wanted to go with a Star Trek costume. My initial purchase of a dress ended up being sent to Monika because it was way to snug on me. It was cheaper to buy a t-shirt than to make something (the pattern cost more than the T).
I came home, walked Balt again and then ate leftovers for dinner. I cooked up a Butternut squash pie (see separate post) and made a fire. Tonight was the teachscape SLO and PPG deadline and of course I waited until this evening to finish my work up. I had a good start to the paperwork and good idea of what to do, following in the footsteps of my colleagues, but I had to type up stuff and hit the submit button. Not one kid came to trick or treat, so there were no interruptions other than Facebook. No need to stay up till midnight. I got it all done with plenty of time to spare. I wanted to work on my Mayan print but now may just go to bed early! What an old lady I'm turning into!!
