I had a really nice weekend!
Fuzzy and I had a nice lunch together and then went to Barnes & Noble where we both located some book bargains.
Dinner at Cracker Barrel was yummy! Hubby got a deal on the last of a halloween decoration, too. It is a fiber optic black cat and it was originally $45 and he got it for $15! Don't you love a good bargain! I do!
The kids got all their favorite candy treats that only Cracker Barrel has at the store! I got my favorite Vermont Maple Candy... yum!
Thankfully, we were spared with all the wind and rain from losing any power. Lots of people in the NY/NJ area really got clobbered. We had some trees and big branches down locally, but nothing seemed to catch the wires, thank goodness.
Today and tomorrow are going to be in the 60's, which is great for Trick or Treating! After school tomorrow we will go to our town center which is lined with stores on both sides, about 6-7 blocks worth. We will go up one side and down the other side, which will produce several bowls worth of candy!
We also collect money for The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network as Fuzzy has food allergies and asthma. Halloween is a great time to raise awareness.
After we arrive home from gathering candy, I sit with 2 big Halloween bowls. The green bowl, is for Fuzzy and represents 'green is go' which is safe food for him. All the candy with peanuts or nuts or no label to tell for sure is put in the orange bowl. Fuzzy only eats out of the safe bowl and only shares with Pumpkin and Hammer if they ask him and if he is feeling generous. His prerogative, as he is the one with the allergies and the limits.
So, the Jets lost but the Giants won, so we are 50-50 in NFL happiness today! lol
Thanks for all the suggestions for my hips! You will be happy to know that they are feeling better again! Yay!
Oh, just one more thing. Today, Hammer and I made homemade butter! It is pretty easy to do. We use an old baby food jar that I saved just to make it. You just put in heavy cream and shake. And, shake and shake and shake. After it turns to whipped cream it will start to coagulate into butter with the left over liquid whey. Dump the whey, lightly sprinkle with salt, and spread the butter on crackers! A yummy homemade treat!
