Can you believe it’s 6 weeks to Christmas? And less than 2 until Thanksgiving. This time of year goes by even faster than the rest of the year. Maybe that’s why January and February seem to take forever to get through LOL.
I have hardly been taking any pictures. I haven’t had time or just not really interesting. I have been doing a lot of work (even today) and you don’t need pictures of my keyboard! 😀 I just need to get through the next 6 weeks and things will settle down more and I can get back to work on fun projects like the trunks that have been sitting around waiting for me to get to them.
Anyway. Most of the plants have been killed by frost, but my ground mums are still going. They are flopped over from the heavy wet snow a couple weeks ago, but they still look pretty.
Some places are full-on Christmas already. We were out for breakfast this morning and the coffee shop was all decked out.
No holiday music yet, though. I find I don’t even mind this, actually. Thanksgiving and Christmas kind of tie together, unlike summer and pumpkins.
On a most annoying note, I think I going to have to go in for another root canal. I have had a very sensitive tooth for a couple years, but even at the last visit in August, the x-rays looked fine. The dentist had put some kind of barrier film on the tooth to help with sensitivity and it worked pretty well. Fast forward to last week and I started to get sinus pain, which I first attributed to rain coming, but then it moved into my mouth as well and I cannot even chew on that side of my mouth because of pain in the tooth. I tried calling my dentist on Friday, but they were closed for the holiday. I was considering going to the urgent care because of how much it hurt, but with warm compresses it’s a lot better. It only hurts now when my teeth click together or if I accidentally chew on that side. Hopefully I can get a fast appointment on Monday to get the process rolling. I *just* finished off the payments on my last root canal in February and now I look forward to another $1500 dental bill. Boo.
On a good note, there has been more biking! It was in the low 50s today, so we got on the bikes for a nice ride.
Bundled up, but it any late season ride is a good one.
