I have been texting my kids a quote of the day. My favorites are from the great Presidents of our church. Other great Authors also make their way into the Quote Of The Day. I try
to taylor it to the individual so it brightens their day.  Wow, I might be going overboard ?.   So far no one has complained, they do seen to enjoy it.
Enough Blah, Blah, Blah. I sent one today to my oldest son that he really got a kick out of.
I thought that I would share it. Since it fits him right now.

Quote:  I Adam, Prince of Ethernia and defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull.
            This is Cringer......  My fearless friend.  Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me
            the day I held aloft my magic sword and said.......  By The Power Of Greyskull !.
            I AM HE-MAN!!!!!!
I hope this will make soneone's day a little lighter.

It Was In His Eyes

My daughter and I are BIG animal lovers. What can I say?.  Well, we are always getting ourselves in trouble. Mind you we have been warned, by my gentle sweet hubby to stay away from adoption events.

So Friday we had nothing to do, annnnddd there was a big Adoption Event down at the Salt Lake City Fair Grounds. Just to look; And look we did.  There were over 900 animals at the event. It was set up beautifully. So easy to see the dogs, big dogs in an area, Pit Bulls all together in another area, and small dogs together too.  The cats were all in an exhibit hall. We had a great time, lots of ooo's and ah's.

I had no intention of bringing anything home, none what so ever.

We were on our way to the car and my daughter said "lets just go through here."  The CAT building.
I walked in and yuck the smell. That is why I do not have a cat. I walked around with my hands behind my back. I did not want to touch anything, and then I saw the green gorgeous, loving eyes. Starring, beckoning me over. I was in a trance out of control. my mind and brain were aware but my body was moving forward, closer, closer and then I WAS HOLDING A CAT!

He put his arms around my neck as he purred, then took his paw and rubbed my face and the feel of his long blue fur was like, like Minky Fabric. Snap out of it I thought.

Snap, Snap, CRAP!!!  I looked into his eyes and the feeling of defeat overwhelmed me.

Of course, my daughter was doing a little happy dance.  Then she started to speak to me. He is 12 yrs old, he has had all his shots, been fixed, teeth are clean. Oh, and he is free to the right home. Oh yeah, we are not the right home. "That was close, out of the woods lets go." Oh No, my daughter had filled them in on our little dirty secret, "we rescue" or we have in the past.

All the way to the car I am telling my daughter "do not say anything to your Dad, let me tell him, but I'm not going to tell him until his day off. Just keep him in the laundry room and go get the stuff and  and."

And they even gave us a small pet carrier. It was a done deal. Oh Crap!

My daughter had to go to work, I had to fix dinner so hubby could eat before he left for work. The little blue pet carrier was sitting in the dinning room right by the table.  I didn't see it, its a wonder I didn't fall over it. Hubby asked me where the carrier came from. 

"It was free" I said

"And what was in this free carrier?"

"Come with me."  I took him to the laundry room, where we were "hiding" our free cat.
He just looked at me.

"We didn't pick him....He picked us!" He shook his head and laughed then gave the cat a few love pets.

The rest is history.......................... Oh and we named him Si, after Uncle Si on Duck Dynasty. There was no other name befitting for this regal and majestic creature who won a place in our home and hearts

Always Making Something......... Yeah a MESS


By the way over 500 animals were adopted.

Re Done Bannna Leaf Chair

I have been wanting to re do this chair for months. It was Ok before but it just needed a chair lift.
I picked out the paint and my sweet hubby cleaned it and painted it.  Next I made the pillows to match the chair and curtains in the front room and the dinning room. I am really happy with it. I can sit in the recliner and just look at it.  I did add Scotch Guard to it because the 70lb POODLE  was trying to lay in it.

My 4 grand children have had LICE for the last 5 months.  Off and on of course, but 7 different times is horrid. My son is beside himself, He asked if he and his sister and brother had ever had lice.  I answered  NO! and it is true I scared them so bad that they would never have used a comb or worn a hat that was not theirs. 
everything that you can put on a small human has been bought and used.  My son has talked to the school and the Health department. He offered to buy the shampoo and spray for who ever it is that keeps coming back to school with it. He was told that he can not do that because it is a privacy thing.
 Today the boys got there heads shaved and the princess I do not know what they are going to do about her hair, it is down to her waist.
Since they have lived there they have had weird health issues, not including the L problem.
The 10 yr old got Nephritis and was hospitalized in Phoenix for a week. Poor little guy has been on Steroids since January. He has only 1500mg of salt a day so the meal preparing has been hard, almost impossible at best. Then there was Hand, Foot and Mouth.  It took 3 weeks and awful liquid Medicine to get rid of that.  Daddy got a virus that took him 2 weeks to be able to get up and go back to work. Allergy's are at an all time high and at times it is as if there is a small herd of Elephants in the house.
I think some of this is because the earth is in a constant state of turning over there. By that I mean it is the winter vegetable capitol of Northern Hemisphere.  There is dust and dirt in the air all of the time. The heat dose not help,
If anyone out there has an idea of what else that can be done for the L please let me know.
They still have 2 years they have to be there,

I have been making things I will be posting them on Saturday

Till next time.  Always Making Something.......
