IMHO, it's an amazing feeling when you finish scrubbing out a stove. it's a huge feeling of accomplishment, knowing that - once again - the oven is (mostly) clean. after spending all of this Monday roasting pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, knowing some drips were getting away and the grease was building up, it was on my mental list of jobs. now it's done. yay!

next on the list is finishing cleaning the kitchen and arranging the front room for my client tomorrow night. packing for my trip to NY. figuring out how much of the stuff in the bedroom i can move on Sunday before i drive home... if our landlord is serious about redoing the interior of our back room given that part of our roof is done. it would be beyond amazing to have actual insulation up here through the winter, but it does mean a huge overhaul of What Goes Where In the Apartment (including our bed).

i think my Halloween plans now include an apple farm visitation with Deva, Mass in Brunswick or Bath (depending on timing, though my favorite priest is supposed to be in Bath), and (hopefully) hiking the Cliff Trail counter-clockwise at dusk and seeing if any fairies come out to bid me good-bye for the season. :D then hanging out at the restaurant until Dave gets off work. bonus points if i bring my Samarra costume and surprise a few people who come in for dinner. :)

Blessed Samhaim, all my peeps. Blessed All Saint's. Blessed Moving Day. Blessed dark of the year. try not to let it get to you too much.

Thanks for reminding me. ;-)

With blazing sun and temps near 80 today, I'm not feeling at all seasonally affected!

well, i hope when you finally get around to your oven, the dirt is just dirt, and not something inside slowly flaking away *lol*

yeah, weird weather yesterday! and colder today. hoping that it makes up its mind, because this is the type or variation that inevitably makes people ill. :/

i'm trying. *lol* it's been a challenging transition in a lot of ways, but every change requires work, whether it's locale, work, relationship - and i did all of it in a few years. i miss my mom and my family. it's ironic that i'm the one who has always been willing to "leave home" for the right circumstance, and me the one who actually has close ties to my family.

more irony: scrubbing out all that caked-on corrosion yesterday only for the baking element to finally fail this morning. then again, i figured out where all the new corrosion came from: disintegrating heating element! LOL
