Tuesday 11/5/13 Halloween, Day 309/ 365…

This next week should be more ”normal”. Church weekends are over. It was great to go and it is great to get back.

Halloween is tonight. Maggie and Beth are going  with their friends. Yes they are older, but it is harmless fun. Maggie is going as the girlfriend of the guy on ”Bog Bang Theory”. Beth is going as her boyfriend. Beth tried to go as candy corn to her schools Halloween party. She shared the duct tape with a friend and there wasn’t enough for either of them. She put the tape over a t shirt and a pair of jeans, but it only covered her shirt and a few inches of her jeans. She ended up wearing her boyfriends hoodie and went as him.

When the kids were young we all went together. We took pillow cases to hold the candy. We made their costumes each year. I remember getting out the saran wrap, aluminum foil and the tape and saying ”what had you thought about being this year?” Then we would make each costume.

The kids each had a different idea of how fast we should go from house to house. One of the kids wanted to run from house to house. One wanted to walk with me and the third wanted to stay on each porch and look at all of the decorations.

Wednesday 10/23/13 Emmaus Walk, cats and Halloween, Day 296/ 365…

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while. I was on an Emmaus Walk last weekend. The week before it had been planned out very well so that all of the packing for all of us could be done, we would have time to eat dinner together and do all of our family activities. It didn’t work out. Everything went wrong. And the car broke down. Car engines really do smoke. Not to worry…the car got fixed and we all got packed. The kids went to grandmas for the weekend. The Emmaus Walk went well. I saw a lot of old friends and made a lot of new ones.

We are now settling back into our daily lives. One of our cats got out this morning. We have inside cats, but they do have claws. She was out all day. We found her outside under the deck when we got home. When we were getting her the second cat got out. This is the first time that these cats have been outside. Our last cat hated being outside, when the door opened he ran to the middle of the room. It was nice to know that he was always safe. These two cats are curious and is is difficult in the morning when we turn off the lights to leave so the house is dark and it is dark outside, we can’t tell if a cat has gone outside. Both of the cats are back in the house. It was a chilly day for the cat to be outside.

Beth has decided to be candy corn for Halloween. We found the white and orange duct tape at the first store, but it took about three more stops to find the yellow duct tape. It will be interesting to see how this costume turns out. She would have been warmer if she had chosen to go as Captain Fluffy, but it is her choice.

Wednesday 10/2/13 Halloween costumes, day 275/365…

The kids have been talking about Halloween costumes. Maggie wants to go as the girlfriend of one of the characters on ” The Big Bang Theory” she said that all she needs is a t-shirt with the girls picture on it. Beth wants to be a pirate. She still needs a sword…or…she may go a Captain Fluffy. She has fuzzy pants and a fuzzy hat. She went a Captain Fluffy a few years ago and the kids kept asking her if she was a pillow. Her newest choice is to go as candy corn she will need three rolls of duct tape to make this. William doesn’t dress up. Last year Beth went trick-or-treating. She hasn’t said if she will go this year.
We used to make the kids costumes when they were young. They went as Christmas presents…make sure that the box is the correct size or it won’t fit over their jackets or if it is too big they can’t hold their goody bag with both hands and sort of look like an Easter egg. We used to use a lot of tin foil, cardboard, saran wrap and tape. We looked forward to making the costumes each year. Now that they are older, the youngest is a junior in high school, they don’t have dress up days at school. But they do have Halloween dances.halloweenscarecrow

Sunday 9/8/13 car show, goals, duct tape – Day 251/365…

Beth had a car show to go to for her school today. I am not a car person, but it is cool to see all of the cars. Her school is displaying their go carts, making buttons and they have the remote control robots. This show goes from eleven to five.

Beth and I set our goals for this year. She wants to get good grades and I am going to find a lot of cultural events for us to go to. We need a goal to keep us motivated. I get most of my ideas from the local newspapers that are outside of the library.

School has started. It was so amazing how we jumped back into the routine. We are packing lunches and doing homework . Years ago it took us a lot longer to settle in.

Beth has bow in her hair that is made out of duct tape. I don’t understand the joy that this generation is getting out of duct tape. She also has a duct tape bill fold. One of Maggie’s friends made her Halloween costume out of duct tape.

I need help. Does anyone know how to add “followers” to WordPress? I can’t find where to get the code. If anyone knows, please leave me a comment. I will really appreciate it.

Here are some pictures from the antique car show.  We didn’t make it to the whole show. We spent most of the day with Beth’s school at their booth. Enjoy the pictures!
