October is an exciting month each year with Fall weather kicking in, football and Halloween. In Arizona we had another fun month with great weather. Wish our family back in the Midwest could say the same. They saw some pretty bad storms and a lot of people lost power to their homes for a while besides cleaning up the damage left by the storms they had. All was pretty calm here in Arizona.
For the month I wish I could say I took advantage of the weather by golfing a lot but I actually only played once this month. Tom’s sister came in from Missouri and we all played golf one day. It was fun spending time with her. I couldn’t tell you the last time I saw her, it had of been over thirty years ago.
Mrs. RE had a fun month. She went back home to spend time with family and friends for over a week. It was a nice break from her busy and demanding job. Especially being in the grocery business she will be extra busy the next five months with holidays and snow birds.
Stock Market was down for the month. More of our Dividend stocks were down for the month than up. Maybe November will be better since it looks like people should be busy spending money on the holidays. Hopefully the elections go well this month and the feds slow down their rate hikes. I still feel like stocks will still be the place to be invested in. We are also still at 100% in Dividend stocks in our Brokerage account.
We did spend some money on a home appliance that wasn’t a need but a want. But I feel our family and friends will get enjoyment from our purchase for years to come. We hope this one lasts longer than the last one did. Even with that purchase and Mrs. RE’s trip back home our expenses held tight. We are looking like low expenses the rest of the year besides maybe some Christmas presents.
Mills Way sales were low this month also of our CDs and Books. I did a bunch of blogs this month but it didn’t result in any extra traffic, followers or sales. I am hoping to crank out more blogs in the upcoming months to finish the year strong. Hopefully we can get building our Patreon followers up by our friends spreading the word. Also we are working on a new streaming software to help spread the word more. Plus, I wrote some more on my book this month. I just need to rent a cabin for a month and just write to finish it. It is a good project for my mind plus three other books I have started.
