Happy Halloween!

Studied Spanish.

Got all my plants in from outside.

Turned cold today. Supposed to get down to nearly freezing tonight.

Enjoyed hanging with the girls today.

The girls and Jess and I went to El Torero‘s today. Good lunch. Good company.

Rainy day today. It’s good for the trees. Wish California was getting some of this.

I enjoy reading this newsletter called Book Freak.

Grandgirls! Mission! 10-30-19

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:31 pm  

Continued my brain training this morning.

Also studied Spanish. It’s all about long-term effort to get best results.

Had a great time with the grand girls today. Took them to our inside place since it was rainy, which is normally the Dollar Tree or Goodwill. I asked Penelope if she thought these pants would fit her.

Always have fun looking around there. The people are super chill and don’t mind kids playing. Plus, I pretty much always buy a bunch of stuff. We got some more rain jackets and warm clothes.
They have plenty, I just like to keep a collection of stuff in my car.

Had a fun time with the kids at the mission.

Even though it was rainy we had a lot of kids with homework. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow so we won’t do our candy throw until next week when the weather is better. Kids don’t care as long as they get candy!

I’ve been listening to the first Harry Potter book in Spanish. Always learning new words. And it’s fun to feel like I’m learning to hear things at full speed better.

After I get home, I read the English chapters that I’ve listen to in Spanish. Just to see what my comprehension level is. I get at least 80% of it. Sometimes more. Which is fun.

Gassed up my car.

I bought Cathy some new cologne tonight.

One of my new resolutions is to wash my sheets regularly.

I got our new Can Opener running. It’s the simple things that make life easier!
