Just banging around the area...2016 Annual Halloween Party

October 2016
Central NY

Saturday evening while Mark worked an overnight, Gavin and I took on the local mall. We had plans of a movie and some shopping.

Up first we found a score of a deal at the Disney Store.... Gavin got Stitch and I had to get a Pooh!


Next was the movie Miss Pergrine's  home for Peculiar Children.

Dinner included sub's from subway, and a late hair cut finalized our mother son evening.

I like the new doo. 
We have all been working on a healthier lifestyle. My week days have included things like the Military diet. (Here's an example of one breakfast,) and 4am trips to the gym. Yep!! Thats right 4AM!!!

Mark and I had a date night out to The Yellowbrick casino in Chittenango one Friday evening. We had dinner and actually won some money. (Well he did, I just got some because that is how we roll.)
My Close to My Heart order came in and I made Holiday Cards....

My friend, and co worker  obtained season tickets to the theater. Our first in the six was Once.
Before the show we enjoyed an unusually WARM evening. (Yeah that was the end of that.)



I got a few pictures of the down town area of Columbus Circle. Barbara is native american. Her thoughts about Christopher Columbus is a little negative. 



I got a shot of the top of the church and the Syracuse Court house. 

I have to report that I was not so excited about our season ticket seats. They are one row up from the first row, but they are still so far back (balcony), to top it off (and I have complained about this before) the seats are so tight. I felt like I was sitting on my neighbors. At intermission Barb and I moved up a row closer to the middle and put a seat between us..just to spread out a little. (I am guessing not all of the shows will have this opportunity.)
It was a little different then most plays I have seen. The characters (most) were in an Irish tongue which made it difficult to understand.








The music was amazing however, and the characters actually acted, sang, danced all while playing an instrument. No orchestra in this performance.











Barbra and I had a great time.
The rest of the week was YUCKY!!! It rained for what seemed like an entire week. Mark and I made it to the gym, but most of the week was nestled under blankets watching tv.

At work, some of my co-workers and I went to a Domestic Violence demonstration at the Sky Armory in Down Town Syracuse.
The weekend brought a good time with my Annual Halloween Party.
