Bogged down in grading, bathroom remodel almost done, attended the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Run last weekend. M ran it, I couldn't because of a foot injury. *sigh* Fall came in fast and furious here, one moment it was September and worrying about October coming, I blinked and we're already in the middle of November. I tell myself I will sit still when I get old, but I'm not sure I'll be able to even then. :-) Until I can get on top of all this grading, here's a lovely tree near our house blazing in its Fall colors.

I've been so busy that I forgot to take pictures of this year's Halloween display. We moved things around, added new features, and had over 300 trick-or-treaters this year! This is the most we've ever had. We had multiple people handing out candy and they got overwhelmed a couple of times at the massive number of people swarming onto our property. Oh my! I told CK about the skeletons we added that we positioned to look as if they were climbing up the side of the house. I didn't get any pictures, but M did, so I snagged this one from her FB page.
We're also in the midst of a major bathroom remodel. Yes, we are gluttons for punishment. I will post on that as soon as the dust settles. We had the whole bathroom gutted down to the studs and expanded a bit. After 3 weeks of destruction, re-construction, wiring, plumbing and painting, we are finally at the tiling stage today. I'm really hoping it all gets done this week. Well, mountains of grading awaits me. Later!
