I did the laundry right away, but still need to put away the suitcase and organize my clothes. Instead I colored a bit until my brain could process life again.

My toilet was runny too so I had to look up how to fix it and then replace a toilet flapper.

Since I had to go out to Home Depot, I also swung by Michaels.

I shopped that store in Wiesbaden when I was a teen, and was thrilled to have my aunt take me back there on my visit.

Contact me if you want a trick or treat pendant—my online shop will lag a bit since the rainy weather doesn’t lend itself to photoshoots.
