Cover Up

I have been trying to cover one of my sisters Benches for months. These are great benches that we got  free from a very posh hotel in downtown Salt Lake. These benches sat at the end of the beds in the suites.
At the time my sister's daughter worked there (my niece). So we each got several of the benches. Today was going to be the day for sure.  First she had to do a few errands. Ok so I got the stuff together that we were going to need.  My sweet hubby wanted to work on cleaning the furnace so I told him to go ahead that my sister was going to do errands so it might be a while.  She is a little unpredictable  in that department.  So he went up into the attic to work on the furnace.  Next project he had the stove all apart cleaning it. It looks like new.  Tried to call her no answer.  Finally we connect. I am on my way. The phone rings. Our oldest son stressed about something so I talked to him for a while. Called her to tell her I was on the way.  My hubby not feeling well now, sneezing, coughing stuffed up head. Great he has a cold, that he got from my brother-in-law. now it is time for dinner and hubby needs to lay down. So I fix dinner, I call my sister and say I'll be over. It's 6:pm. " No, No its to late."  she said.  It's 6 pm.   I m tired I'm going to bed.  It's true she goes to bed early because she gets up at 0: crack thirty.  Really! she never sleeps past 2 or 3 am. Then she is on the go again. "Lets do it tomorrow"  she said.  OK I hope we can. What time ?  Well I have to go to the Dentist at 9:30 and then stop at the ..........................................       I didn't want to anyway.  Some day I hope to get it done, and when I do I'll post a picture.  As for tomorrow I think I will cover my bench I got free from a very posh................    You know the rest.

Apples, Apples Every Where

Today my sweet hubby and my brother in law went to pick apples from a woman he works with. I wanted to go but I tore a ligament in my foot and it hurts like a you know what. I have to be non weight baring. Oh joy!
So I stayed at my sisters house with her.  I love my sister she is so good to me. I sat in the recliner with my foot up, we had a little tea party Yummy Hummas and crackers and some really good Herb Tea. Watching design shows, reading magazines, talking and laughing. Then a nap. A great Sunday afternoon.
Finally after 3 hours the gentelman returned.  With about 200# of beautiful Red crisp apples. Now we have our work cut out for us.  We are the preserving type of people we can every fall.
This is going yo be a lot of work what on earth are we going to do? Well I guess I'll find out what my hubby has in mind.  More tomorrow

Halloween with Greyson or Running with a Dinosaur

Halloween is not my favorite holiday.  Then I really don't have a favorite holiday.  As a matter of fact, I don't like holidays at all.  That's another post all together.

Since our grandchildren live in Texas we don't get to see them at this time of year.  My niece and her husband live here and their little two and a half year old.  And since my sister and brother in law had a prior commitment [Gi-Gi and Pa-Pa], I decided to stand in.

When the rain stopped, ( I think my niece was praying it wouldn't), and she was able to catch Greyson she wrestled him down and put on his costume.  A very cute bright blue fuzzy Triceratops.  The hood was loose and slid forward over his eyes, his mom kept pulling it back and then he tried to hold his head back to keep it from going over his eyes again every time this was repeated he would hold his head up and say "I see Cwowds".  He was running and skipping and us, trying to hold on to him was a challenge.  I was laughing so hard I was having a hard time staying dry and it wasn't raining.  My niece was kicking herself for not bring the child leash, the restraint of choice for his sweet little very active boy.

By the time he hit the second house, he had it down pat.  Tumbling up and down the stairs to each $350,00. 00 homes, knocking on the door and saying, "Trick or Treat", and "thank you", still not having full use of his sight.  Then when I thought I could not laugh any more and the stopping, twisting my legs together to keep from springing a leak was becoming a real test of lower ab strength, I started to have my own sight issues from his hysterical antics.  He began to figure out he was funny.  But then his tiny hand would slip into mine and he would say, "Come on  Susie, almost there".

The highlight of his collecting sugar fill treats was when someone gave him a lunch size bag of Lay's Potato Chips.  He was totally in awe with the bag of chips.

This was truly the best Halloween I have had in years.

I was going to post pictures, but they were all a blue blur.  I would rather keep photos in my guarded file protected in my mind.  So someday when I am old and sitting in chair at the nursing home, I can play it over and over all for my self.  Maybe next year when he is older.  I guess that DEPENDS.
