Annual pedis

We back last week from visiting our daughter and family in Colorado so I’ll be telling you a bit about our trip over the next few days.

Last year I took my daughter the girls (they are 10 years old) out for pedicures when we visited them so we decided to do that again this year.

My one granddaughter got a skeleton on her big toe and I got a pumpkin.

My daughter picked a beautiful autumn color and no nail art but the other grand got a ghost one her big toe.

I want to make this an annual event when we visit.

Two grands

Last week two of our grandchildren stayed with s for a few days.

They found my old typewriter that I used in college.  It wasn’t new when I bought it and I don’t have the manual for it anymore (if ever) so I’ve forgotten what some of the keys did or how to set the tabs.  But our grandson loved plinking around on it.

Our granddaughter typed a short story on it but was interested in making some shrink art.  We printed out some b/w pictures from the internet and she used colored pencils to liven them up.  I forgot to take pictures of the finished product.

We also made homemade ice cream, grilled pizza (their favorite), and watched a great movie that was “before their time”: Secondhand Lion.

Mr. Aitch and I were worn out when they went home.

Two helpers

Are you (US residents) ready for the big turkey day feast tomorrow?  Our daughter and family were here for the weekend so we had our big meal this past Sunday.

I recruited two helpers to slather butter between the skin and breast of the turkey.  Smaller hands worked great.

Plus there was the “ew, this is so gross” factor!

Once the grossness was out of the way, they did a wonderful job of smearing butter all over the bird.

Best turkey ever!
