This was taken this morning from my hot-tub room. Looks like we won't be able to have a third Halloween in a row without snow, what a bummer! Decorating our front yard with gravestones, lanterns etc. just doesn't look the same when not on grass and dead leaves.

This year we seemed to go from late summer to winter. Period. Our leaves have barely changed colours and in most trees they are still full and green. How does it make sense to go from 80's to 50's in a couple of days, and then this a week later? Our highs are now in the mid 30's.

Ah well, when you live in this area of Alberta you never know what you're going to get. Actually, for the past several years it seems almost not matter where you live you don't know for sure what you'll get weather-wise.

In other news, I'm dealing with an infected tooth close to the front of my mouth, and my face is swollen right up to my eye socket. I've been taking antibiotics (and we all know what havoc THEY create in my body!) since Sunday night and it hasn't let up. Neither has the terrible pain, which I can tell when the Advil wears off. Thankfully Advil keeps it at bay enough for me to work during the day or sleep at night.

Suddenly a walk to the dentist is much MUCH colder out there with the wind chill being what it is. I know they can't do much with an infected tooth until the infection is down, but I may have to get myself there anyway because it doesn't seem to be going away even with the evil antibiotics. Oh the joys of NOT having false teeth! LOL

If you haven't already voted, you can participate in the "Architecture" photo contest over at Stardom Awaits! by voting for your favourite shot. Voting is open until mid next week or so. Thanks!

I hope you're staying warm (and green) wherever you are, take good care of each other!

Love Jude
