We did the clock set-back deal so got an extra hour of sleep Sunday, but was really groggy getting up. Still remnants of our colds. But once we got going and had some coffee, we seemed to be much better. While Sue fixed bacon and eggs, I started pulling all the Halloween decorations down, doing some laundry, and bringing up a couple of Thanksgiving decorations.
After breakfast, Sue and I spent almost 4 hours organizing a whole bunch of way overdue paperwork and doing other first of the month tasks - like me changing the water in the entryway fountain. We also discussed what sort of charity work we'd like to get involved with in the coming season as well as thinking about how to schedule a bunch of home projects that still need doing.
Sue and I headed out about 3:30pm Sunday afternoon and drove over to the University of New Hampshire's Durham campus for my Annual U.N.H. Walkabout. I've been doing that every year at around this time for 38 or so years. In fact, if you look back in my archives, you'll probably see a picture I take every year of the same tree out front of the main adminsistration building; it's become sort of a ritual in the last 10 or 15 years.... This year was no different.
From there, we drove over to Hannaford's to do our food shopping and we both got flu shots. I didn't cook tonight because we've got so many different leftovers from the past week and a half that we were all set. So, after unpacking the groceries we did buy, I poured some wine, and Sue and I spent an hour or so chatting and playing a set of backgammon before we heated up dinner. We finished off the night with the entertaining movie Erasing David.
