Happy Thorsday, little friday, Thankful Thursday, last day of business for the inlaws’ company and more. The girls have a little request for Shadow, related to the current flux in his life.
So, I’m going to cut to the chase. There’s a lot to celebrate this month, and while I can’t pretend this will be the year I get my act together and have a great paw-ty for everyone remembering and celebrating, this CAN be the year I make a list so we can truly plan out Octoberfete for next year!
Please leave a comment with the date(s) and what you celebrate or memorialize in October, and I’ll follow up with a master calendar page at a later date. (Like… September X, 2014?)
I am quite thankful for the time spent with my inlaws. When I first went to work there, on Thursdays, there were three married couples and a total of 8 – EIGHT!! – Moores working in the same business. I’ll miss the impromptu family lunches – like today’s – just because Uncle’s wife (the fabulous artist who did the painting of the fur-girls and the hydrant) called and suggested I call in the order to Tubby’s and she’d pick it up.
And there’s a fun slice of life in podunk. I called. Got asked to hold on… and before I finished ordering the first sandwich, I realized I was talking to a friend’s younger sister… who knew which order was the Knight’s and joked that she might have to slip in some hot peppers (on egg salad with relish on white toast) in there for him. She didn’t, but I’m content to sacrifice Nordstrom’s for happy little bonds, such as a sandwich shop where everybody knows your name/voice – and what your husband orders.
Don’t forget to leave your October dates to remember in the comments!
