As so many have said about 2020, I am saying the same thing about October. which ends today with Halloween. I've written about my health experiences throughout it, and have little more to add except I am glad that my problem appears to be nightshade intolerance. I can do something about it if I learn enough and am careful enough...
The bad part is nightshades are used in so many foods; so October has not been a fun month for me-- as we discover one after another the hard way. I am glad to see it go and hope from what I have learned, November will be better. Between that and the loss of a good friend, this will be a month never to be remembered fondly-- despite it being mine and my daughter's birthday month. Since I've never made a big thing out of my birthday, it was no loss on its sake. I won't say the same for the rest-- nor more details, which I am sure you don't want to hear.
So what can I say for a blog, when I want to stay off politics (will be so glad to see this season end) and have no idea where our country will be heading culturally? (hoping for the best) When you are laid low during a pandemic, not much exciting happens. Just getting through some days is enough. I know Halloween is a big deal to some folks but where we live kids don't come and our own kids and grandkids don't live close nor do they probably trick or treat any more-- if their state allows.
But then along came this sunset. A video sometimes is worth making especially in a time like ours that can be upsetting. (Tucson Autumn Sunset)
Happy November-- I hope :)
