Scrat is a prehistoric squirrel whose sole purpose in life is to bury an elusive acorn, which always – always! triggers calamitous events.

Yesterday Jill… spotted “ICE AGE”… the movie…  coming on the TV…

Actually it seems that this furry character named Scrat… got her attention…

He was trying to bury his acorn…but, not having much luck with the frozen ground

She started on the floor watching… then went to the table where she could get a better look…

She watched intently for about 15 minutes… as different characters emerged…

We laughed as she bent down to look under the TVsearching for this pesky squirrel…

The birds are liking the Bird Feeders…

I have to take photos through the window glass… so not too clear… or they want to fly away…

Have a great day!

Carson’s Hot Wheel/ Matchbox Clock…

I have lots of Hot Wheels and Match Box cars of my grandson’s from when he was little…

He has outgrown them…

being more interested in sports… camping… playing in the woods… building things…

So…

I saw an idea about making a decorative mirror using these infamous little cars…

But, I decided a clock would be great for his room…

but, how do I do that???

I purchased the clock first…

and then decided after looking around in the craft supplies…

that this oval canvas for painting resembled a race track…

I glued the clock with clear Loc-tite “GO2 Glue”…

after finding center…

Cut hole through canvas where battery can be replaced on clock when needed…

I found a scarf for $1.29 when in the craft department…

reminding me of a checkered flag at the FINISH LINE…

Cut 2 duplicate pieces …

and Tacky Glued it to the sides of the clock… keeping as even as possible…

like Hodge Podge…

Some of Carson’s cars… there were lots more!

This one had to be on it…

He loved it and thought it was so funny when he was little…

It’s a “toilet seat car” with a plunger for a gear shift…

Painting with black paint along sides…

I was liking the look!…

Glued on cars and Hot Wheels/Match Box emblems…

17 cars surround the clock…

I liked the result…

and hope he does too!

I awoke to the alarm clock… Something I hadn’t done since I retired 3 years ago…k7492445

I did away with it… and never had a watch on my wrist… either…

Three years to just wake up when I wantedgo to bed when I chosedrink my coffee or hot teak6131408… do my blogging… play with my cat… and be home with my husband…

I loved every minute! …

But, I have lately thought I would like to have a part-time job

but, it had to fit my desire…

When the first of the year came… I applied for a job… and was hired…

So last night… I sat the alarm for 6:30am… because I had to be on time for my first day of work…

This first day of me going back to work happened to be my Birthday!…

Another milestone in itself! …k16746900

I arrived a little before 8:00am…

and was greeted warmly by the other staff members…

I was shown what a normal day would be like as I was introduced to the Senior/Adults arriving by bus and car for the Day Program…

Approximately 30+ people are enrolled…

Some come by the YMCA bus transportation and others come with a spouse, grandson , daughter or son…k5266113k4878812

They all seemed so happy to be there…

proving to me this was a good… caring… place…k9696519

Breakfast was fixed by us… simple cereals… oatmeal with toppings… coffee, hot chocolate…

Some had already eaten…

As we waited for all to arrive… I mingled and talked… I met a most versatile group…

Alzheimersk5780440mental disabilities… handicapsk4878805… old age…

They talked… seeing them reacting to people that have become their friends… Some quiet… some busy… some talkativek12374389

A rich variety of personalities…

They looked at magazines… read the newspaperk12588960… watched TV

Some had special things to show me… a book… a bracelet k7149844… handmade crafts… a sport’s shirt…

We exchanged names …

Me, promising to try to remember their name k15902086… but, that it might take me awhile

I was showed around the area… a quick tour of signing in… fixing foods… bathrooms… clothes closet… supply room… etc. …

We then played BINGOk8504272 thoroughly enjoyed by many… winning small prizes…

College students came in bmc-logo… to mingle with the participants of the program… adding to their class assignments…

They loved the attention of the students…

My part of the day ended as lunch was beginning… and many asked if they would see me tomorrow… I reassured them I would be back and looked forward to seeing them too… Wasn’t that sweet! k7149993

It was a great day… and I enjoyed my Birthday very much… k9791907
