Heading back to the Midwest for a week, there have been last minute details to take care of. This includes the usual making-sure-that-the-dogs (plus the foster kittens, still with me) have everything they'll need while I'm gone.
Our ballots came in the mail yesterday, so while I was at it, I voted. Yep, I'm all done with this year's election. Another perk of living in Oregon: vote-by-mail. The voter's pamphlet is informative, fraud is almost non-existent, financial costs of elections are greatly reduced, and there is more time to count the ballots (which must be in by November 6th): why don't more states do this?
I'll be back later, after visiting my elderly mother in Wisconsin and my son & his family in Chicago. Have a wonderful autumn week, y'all.
