Porte Musings:

To end bullying of LGBQT teens and children today is Spirit Day. Put an end to bullying. Do a random act of kindess.

October 21, 2015 is the day the DeLorean traveled to in the movie “Back to the Future”, so today is remembered as “Back to the Future Day”. To celebrate you can donate to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research or just watch one of the Back to the Future movies with a good friend and some popcorn.

Celebrate the fruit of the fall on Apple Day. Apples of all kinds celebrate diversity of communities and people. Eat an apple a day for it’s medicinal purposes. Or today just celebrate the humble apple. Apple cider, upside down cake, juice, cobbler, sauce, candy…..or just a fresh crisp apple.

Living in the middle of a construction zone, we’re preparing for new floors, next week the floor laying begins. The simple task of clearing out the main floor of our 2 story house has turned into paint the baseboards, paint the trim, redecorate the laundry room and now paint the den. Move this, pack that, don’t use the main floor toilet (how lazy we have become, that trip upstairs to use the loo has became a major hurdle.) Add a piece of plywood to the end of the counter. Buy new chairs. Maybe the curtains need to be changed? I can’t wait until this project is done. 😉
