My Halloween wasn’t that great. I put some chocolate popovers in the oven just before the trick-or-treaters were to begin ringing my doorbell. When I turned the tray around, the pot holder slipped. Well, when I woke up yesterday, I was experiencing less sensation in my right hand than usual so I could not tell I was grabbing the oven rack rather than the pan. I had second degree burns on one finger and first degree on 2 others. I still have feeling deep down (let me tell you) but on the surface, that feeling sensation has diminished moreso before the burns :/ .  After doctoring my boo-boos, I took some pain meds and went to bed. Ok, we haven’t had our first freeze yet and the only weather advisory we had before I went to sleep was a wind advisory for this afternoon.


I awoke in the wee hours this morning when my youngest who lives in Tennessee texted saying it had been snowing most of the night. She gets excited 😀 — wonder who she gets that from. 😉 I went back to sleep and when I woke up later, I looked out questioning why it looked like snow falling from the sky… I checked my phone for the weather and saw a winter weather advisory. I dismissed it at first because I thought it was for Tennessee and then I realized that was snow on the radar–locally–then I started to replay last night in my head…pain from the burns…pain during treatment…more pain while giving out candy (I actually tolerate pain pretty well)…more pain…then pain meds and sleep. I looked out the window again and saw rain but some snow too. What? It’s November 1st … isn’t it? We rarely get snow but NEVER this early!!! 


There wasn’t much snow and it hasn’t been cold enough to stick but this is weird–really weird. There was real snow (sticking to the ground) just east of here on the way to Columbia (SC). Very interesting. And, I was trying not to turn on my heat … yet. 🙂 Hope your Halloween was a good one.
