Last night I actually accomplished everything on my "list". Made a pert little pin-up style witch's hat for my Halloween costumes. It took some trial & error, but I had all the materials already, and I'm pleased with the end result. There will be pictures eventually.
I picked up the ingredients for the chili and the pumpkin bread, and also got wine and rum and a bottle of dark beer to be used for the chili.
Forgot the eggs, and the local place I like is out of black vodka and it's backordered...so...I need to make up a new punch recipe.
Tonight is making chili and baking rum raisin pumpkin bread, and a few other things. Tomorrow the hairdresser! (It's been a long time!)
p.s. I've opened up the Comments to all.
