Halloween Day!…

Our Halloween Dayk10842957 has turned cold… rainy and a little windy…

Some slight mixture of snow is expected…

Way too early!… but, I still get excited when I hear those words!…

Maybe a kid forever… which to me is not a bad thing!…

I got up early to my son coughing… k13612469which he has been doing way too long…

But, his head is as hard as granite… so I only offered some Mucinex  product_fastmax_night_homecallout

I had… and to my surprise he took it!… home-product_1

Later… and not too long… he was not coughing and sleeping soundly…

By, then I was awake and it was just 4:00am… Way to early to be up for the day…

After some hot tea… I climbed back in… got my feet warm… and slept another 2 hours…

Knowing today was Halloween… and needing to dress up a little for our Seniors… I began to put on my simple costume…

I had a black shirt with a gold spider web on it…

So I added black pants,  spider webbing… that stretches all over… small and large spiders to my shirt and pants…

Kay brought Deviled Eggs with Black Olive Spiders… they were a hit!

The little ones from the daycare… pre-school and kindergarten… babies to four-year olds… came through for treats… as our Seniors handed out suckers

A Halloween Movie was on when I left…

a great Halloween Day for all!

AND NOW… I’ve switched on the jack-o-lantern light… poured the candy in the big bowl…

waiting for the little Trick or Treaters k7555576to arrive here at the house!

Good Morning!… Watcha doing?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes!… I know I look sleepy!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can hardly open my eyes… but, I needed to see you!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I see you have YOUR coffee!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m going to go see what YOU fixed ME!

I will soon know what is happening with my foot…
No!… I hadn’t mentioned it… because I’m not a whiner… but, it sure does hurt!…
so…
when I finally went for my Healthy Check-up yesterday I asked my Doctor if she would look at it…

k11429015
It hurts so bad to touch… and right now… some shoes are a problem!…
She ordered x-rays…
“Probably a spur”, she thinks…
Not sure what that entails but, Monday is x-ray time…  k2312806
I haven’t gotten back any results from my blood work yet… but, I feel I’m pretty good health-wise… just a tweak here and there should help me feel better…
I should take a before and after photo of me… because my objective is to lose a few pounds…
But, by the time I reach my goal you will have forgotten about me and my blog… ha, ha!
As you notice… I call my check-ups “Healthy check-ups”… because that’s my positive thinking in use!… No time to be sick or down with too much… Life is waiting for me to explore so many things!

k10842957
Tomorrow being Halloween… we will be dressing up a little for our Seniors I work with… and they will be dressing up too!… Fun time abounds!

Finish This #41

1. I feel like a bad-ass when…u16875422

I am in a bad mood…

No one is pleasing me…

Everything seems like it is someone elses fault…

Stupidity is everywhere!…

Everyone getting in my way…

I am the only one who is right…

I am the only one who knows how to handle things…

I am the smartest… bad-ass around!…

and I feel I am invincible…

Of course this is short-lived when my head stops being so big… and my feet hit the ground again!

2. One thing that always cheers me  up…k6222670k5749882

I have a few…

An off day from work + it being a pay-day!…

Hearing my Grandkids talk…

Something good to eat…

A get-a-way with my husband…

My kitties…

3. The quotes I live by…k14272361

“Do Not Make Simple Things Complicated”!

“You must be courageous and brave, and not fearful, in taking advantage of life’s opportunities as they are made available to you”   (A. Posse)

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

Matthew 4:4

I read the ingredients at this bloggers sight…”Cauldronandcupcakes”… and knew I had to make this cake…

Spicy… nutty… fruity… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Saying Autumn like a cake should!

I shopped for all of the ingredients…

I had never used Crystallized Ginger… but, it has always sounded so good!…

Dates I use more at Christmas… not that often… but, the flavors combined in the Date-Ginger-Walnut Cake had to be good!

Main ingredients: Dates-Walnuts-Crystallized Ginger

It all ends up in one pan to mix…

and with a little lemon frosting just for taste… Wonderful!…

I just wish I had baked two while I was at it!
