Busy fall

November already. Goodness! Candy corn season is over now. At least until the after Halloween sale stuff is gone.  It’s funny how much I love candy corn, but I really don’t want it at any other time of year.  Now it’s eggnog time.

We had about 14 kids or so for Halloween. Not a ton, but actually more than last year. I’m not sure where the kids go to trick or treat as far as the best neighborhoods around here.  Guess it’s not ours 😀

I think most of America was up late last night to watch the World Series.  I couldn’t stay up, but John did. Congrats to the Cubbies. With it going into extra innings for game 7 and a rain delay, people certainly got their money’s worth on this series as far as suspense goes.

I feel like I have been neglecting the blog a bit. It’s just been busy and it’s really my same old routine.  Biking season is nearing an end. Each time we go out, it could be the last time for the season.  I did get a chance to go out the other day as it was in the 50s. I like to ride earlier in the day, so it was nice to have doable temps in the morning.


I was only wearing a long sleeve shirt and 2 jackets LOL!  I can walk outside in a lot lower temps than I can bike… or willing to bike that is. 40 is about my threshold for cycling. You can only put on so many layers and still pedal.

This weekend starts the fall shows in earnest.  I have a lot of stock ready to go. Boxes and boxes of soap.


Here’s hoping I sell a lot.  You just never know. The weather looks decent for Saturday, so that’s good.  The nice thing about the show this Saturday is that I only have to go a little over a mile to get there. Nice and close to home, unlike the next one which is an hour away.

Welcome in November, hope you stay around longer than October did!

    Glad you are still getting to bike. 🙂

    Did you make any holiday-specific soaps for your shows? I know I impulse buy things like that when they are seasonal-specific, just because it feels fun to splurge for the holiday.

      I have some regular ones that double as holiday scents, pint and mint and I have a specific one, frankincense and myrrh, for the holidays.

    When I saw on FB that you were able to bike, I was so happy for you! Have to say, I’m loving the milder fall we’ve been having.

    We always are out on Halloween but believe it or not, we were in bed reading (so all the lights were off except our bedroom) and the doorbell rang. It was 9:15! I looked out the window and sure enough – trick or treaters. I thought there was protocol about not going to houses with the lights off!

    Good luck with your show – I think the holiday shopping season has started in earnest!

      Our trick or treaters stopped at about 8:30. Pretty early, but I agree – why do they go to houses with the lights off?

    oops… I meant to comment this on your more recent post. .. Having an Etsy shop gives me a new respect for people who work their own businesses and do shows. Whew! It’s been an adventure.
