I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

Friday letters – the edition after Hallowe’en


Dear California sunshine,  Three cheers for you!

Dear Aqua Fit class teacher,  Thank you for working us hard yesterday – apparently you had the idea that some of the group might have eaten a bit too much chocolate the night before.  Not me, of course…  😉

Dear book club book,  I nearly gave up with you because I was getting a bit bogged down with all the information in the early chapters that was necessary for us to have in order to understand the actions of the characters later on, but I’m glad I kept going because it turned into a good story.

Dear local supermarket, Yesterday morning the display of pumpkins outside was still the same as it was on Wednesday, though slightly depleted, but going inside was like walking into a different place…  Gone were the shelves and display stands of Hallowe’en goodies.  Gone was the usual ‘supermarket smell’ of fresh fruit and veg near the entrance.  Overnight they had been replaced by Christmas items and the air had a definite scent of cinammon and festive cheer.  Your staff must have been at work from very early on to have achieved such a change and were also still working as I tried to navigate past the end of the festive section.  It was a hive of industry and I overheard them discussing what time they should arrive the next morning – four a.m. perhaps or would 5 a.m. be early enough?  I was amazed at how quickly it was all happening – clearly there wasn’t a moment to lose in the battle to part us from our cash before Christmas.

Dear self,  Remember that the clocks here in America go back this weekend.


Have a good Friday.

  1. You’ve spotted the signs too then, Elaine? Christmas is almost upon us again!🎅

  2. ‘Christmas creep’ started in the summer here. It should mean plenty of time to prepare but somehow the last minute rush still happens!

  3. Well done for sticking with the book, it’s very satisfying when you make the effort and it pays off. As for being parted from cash at this time of year, I’m happy to hand it over where mincepies are concerned. My local supermarket started stocking them early last month and I was delighted. Do you get mincepies in the States?

  4. Calif Prop 7 is for permanent daylight savings time so vote YES!!
    I was happy to see, today, that Walgreens is only about 1/10th through their transition to Xmas.

  5. But you will have Thanksgiving first don’t forget! Loving the chickens 🙂

  6. You eating chocolate Elaine?? I can’t imagine that. 🤣

Now it's your turn - what would you like to say?
