Things I Like!

My Bobby LOVES!… Snack Cakes…

Little Debbie’s… Hostess…etc. …

He requested DING DONGS the other day…

so… when I saw the Valentine ones were out…

I bought them…

I found that each one was wrapped separately and had a TO: / FROM: space on them for giving like a Valentine

How neat is that!

My Bobby has neuropathy now in feet and hands from chemo… also diabetic …

I decided maybe some warm soak baths on his feet may give him more circulation…

whether or not…

it makes him feel better…

I found this blow up foot tub made by Dr. Teal’s… and their Epson Salt Soaking Solution is really good…

Easy for me… Good for him!

My son, Brian and my grandson, Carson came by Sunday afternoon to help “Poppy” hang a new back door…

Thanks Guys!…

Just a few touch ups and project finished… YEAH!

*******************************

While Carson was here he helped me drill holes in some plastic Jack-0-lanterns for a Halloween Light Project I wanted to do…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had found these at the Thrift Store for 59 cents…

and then bought a box of clear small lights on a string for $2.50…

CHEAP project…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had the glue gun and glue sticks…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After Carson drilled the holes in the bottom of each pumpkin…

We strung lights through each one leaving about 1/3 of lights in each one…

Glued the pumpkins together to stack…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We also decided to put some gravel/stones in bottom of one to weight it some…

worked perfect!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A few $1.00 Store decorations and project was complete…

Looks so cute lit… at night…

********************************

After the boys left I fixed Bobby and me Spaghetti/MeatballsLima Beans… and Croissants…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Do you ever save the condiments from fast food eating? …

I had saved several Garlic Butter Dipping Sauces from Papa John’s Pizza…

I drizzled the Croissants with it and sprinkled Italian Herb Seasoning on top before I baked them…

Another YUMMY!…

Jill was determined to sit on this box I had been separating photos into…

Although crushed down when she stepped upon it…

She didn’t care…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She got sleepier and sleepier… Until…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She covered her face with her paw and fell fast asleep…

When I see something I really like… and see potential in it… I buy it!…

This was at my favorite thrift store…

and only $3.99…

It is handmade…

Plaid Fleece… sewed and tied… into the cutest jacket

I knew I would be changing the buttons… All that was needed…

It said “Fall” to me with the colors of Autumn…

I chose big buttons of different fall colors… dark brown… rust brown… beige… moss-green…

There is a homemade tag sewed in the neck… that says made by “Sis”… a cute gift from a good sister I would say…

or at least that is “my thought”…

I’ve mentioned Jill loves to drink from my floating candles…

I say she is having her martini…

but, did you know… she also loves Lays Potato Chips… on the side…

Jill sleeps anywhere she wants…

the last couple of days on the back of the sofa… on the pillows…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and I like having my frosted flakes for a treat sometimes… Not even for breakfast…

She always waits patiently for her sip of the sweet milk…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I keep her blue ribbon in the file cabinet by my computer…

She comes and says in “cat talk”… that she wants to play…

We play with her ribbon for about 30 minutes every day…

Might be what’s keeping my old girl healthy!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

or is it that she might be a little spoiled…

Sitting and looking outside on her bench…

Cats Like Martinis???

I found this gold/silver clear plate at the thrift store…

It was too pretty to pass up… not knowing what or where I would use it…

Another day I found these exquisite Wine Glasses at the same store…

very heavy gold faceted bases… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I thought I could use them somewhere…

and so… my mind came up with floating candles… it would be just right…

finding them later at a peddler’s mall…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A centerpiece for my coffee table!…

Then… I find my “Jill” drinking from them…

She drinks them dry every day…

We kid about her having to have her Martini around noon every day!…
