officially, it has already started but until last night, it seemed hit or miss with the autumn weather. cool weather but not chilly, autumn weather. well, we got our first hard frost last night. we were snug as bugs as i had closed up the house last week or so and had the heat on 60 degrees to take the damp, rainy chill off. plus, mr. betmo and i both needed the vaporizer as my my sinuses have taken a turn for the worst. i am fighting off what he had- and he plied me with orange juice and tea yesterday. :) so, i doubt i will have a full blown cold on top of the sinuses.
i am enjoying playing my cafe and farming on facebook. anytime i get a new game, i tend to play it until the novelty wears off and then i tire of it. for now, i have about half dozen games going so, i should be entertained for quite awhile.
people have asked my opinion on the peace prize- mmmm... i see their reasoning for the nomination and award. no, president obama hasn't had time to do much as he hasn't been in office for a year yet, but the idea and momentum of international diplomacy and nuclear disarmament only comes around under democratic presidents. so, strike while the iron is hot- so to speak. many on the right tout reagan's term as a period of nuclear disarmament- ok. but he also started the stupid star wars shield that obama (hopefully forever) laid to rest and he invaded sovereign countries too small to fight back. obama inherited his wars.
anyhoo, let's hope he takes the peace part of the prize to heart and gets a move on getting out of iraq and afghanistan- and closing the secret prisons. until then, i will continue to sip my morning cuppa and enjoy the sunshine while it's here. i have a feeling this is going to be a cold winter. oh- and i will need to work on cmas cookie recipes and ideas- perhaps when my head isn't so fuzzy....
