My inspiration for my Halloween Dolls

Children love Halloween and so do
my three monster grandchildren.

"Boney Bonnie"
"Little Skelly"
( doll on a hang man's noose))
"Red Eyed Rudy"
Too much blood!
They are flying to Texas on a witches broom!

I am
I am

I am all about Halloween!

A Fab Friday

I really celebrate on Friday's because...
I have it off every week from work!
What a bonus that I have been given to work a 4-10 work week.

This one is going to be a
Capital Theatre in Salt Lake City

Dinner at:

Then cheering on the:
at LaVell Edwards Stadium!

Pretty Fun..? :~)

What is so special about today?

Today is the Earth's Equinox
An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth's equator. The term equinoxcan also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens. The name "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, the night and day have approximately equal length.

All in an Hour....

You can take this for what it's worth...
To me....it was fast motion.

All in One Hour this Saturday morning.

-Made crepes for Dallas

-Attended to Ariel
(she is at home this weekend recovering
from wisdom teeth extractions)
1.Refilled her liquids/ice bag
2. Dispensed her medications
3. Called & talked with her Doctor.
(she needed advice on her pain relievers.)
4. Made her a fruit smoothie

-Answered the door to a salesperson selling ACT/SAT tutoring software,
I listened to the "Spiel" and said;
"no thanks".

-Finished making a pasta salad I had previously
started yesterday.

-Mixed together a batch of double chocolate cookies.

I am amazed that I was fairly calm and kept it together, well,
not so fast........
I had to blog about it!

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

Melanie Swenson - Living Well video

I entered a video contest at work for a chance to win an airline ticket.
The contest theme was based on Devry's "Well Living" initiative.
Active healthy living.
So this is what the swede and I have been working on
and posted it on YouTube and sent to Devry...waiting to hear the final outcome.
