Happy Homemaker Monday 10.10.16

Good Evening!! Have not posted in awhile.  Had a bit of a mishap at our house.  A couple weeks ago, my mom fell, and broke her femur bone and just recently came home from the hospital.  So I spend part of my day with my nurse’s hat on, as she settles in on the road to recovery.  Hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying the cool weather, and everything fall!!

Good Morning Evening!! Ugh!! I actually got this post together yesterday, and was going to post first thing in the morning. But…I woke up with an excruciating headache. Then I was going to post it after school finished, but then I had to deal with our cable company regarding our Internet service I have been fighting all. weekend. long. Yes, Mercury Retrograde is real people!! Lol. Gotta hold on until September 22 when it is over 😐 Back up your data!!

Enjoying the cooler mornings, that means fall is right around the corner!! I love my sweater weather!! Hope everyone has a great week ahead!!

WHAT’S FEEDING MY BOOK ADDICTION:
I had pre-ordered a book in a series that I started some time ago, and it just got sent to my Kindle. I had forgotten all about it. I have only gotten through the first few chapters of The Billionaire’s Voice by J.S. Scott. If I’ve liked the other books in a series, I know I will continue to like them. This one is about an ex-olympic gold medal figure skater who becomes deaf, and no longer skates. In walks the handsome billionaire, and gets her back on the ice, while of course falling in love with her. I liked how the author talks about using sign language, just an added detail to the story.

Good Afternoon!!  Late afternoon post, but all good.  Getting into the swing of things with school, very different this year, but getting better day by day.  Had some cool mornings, so that has been nice to wake up to.  Hope everyone is doing well.

RECIPE I HAVE TRIED:
I actually made these, they were pretty good. I did half a batch. Can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.

HOMETOWN FUN:
Our little town is constantly growing and improving. There is always something to do. This past weekend, our Animal Shelter had their open house, they have a new facility, and I took Livi and the boys to check it out. They have a lot of cats, one is so fat, that it has it’s own room.  He was pretty, completely fluffy black with green eyes. Yes, I am a dog person, but the cats are growing on me, not that I think I would ever own one, but they are pretty. There were 2 week old kittens there too. Only a couple of dogs, but it was a nice facility and very friendly people. As we left, my mom was sure that Livi did not have a large bag or over-sized sweater to sneak an animal back into the house, lol. Here are some pics of the fur friends we met.

This one was a beautiful tan color.

 

These two just chillin’

 

This little cutie

 

This one just brought in. Beautiful color, gray fur on the face.

 

FROM THE CAMERA:
These are the stars my mom bought at the new local shop that just opened. It has some really nice vintage home stuff, and reasonably priced. The place has hard wood floors and the exposed brick walls, a fun place to browse and shop.

SUMMER FUN
Over the weekend, they held the first round of the P1 AquaX Great Lakes Series, jet ski races on Lake Michigan.

Always glad to see the EMTs on standby.

Always glad to see the EMTs on standby.

They had several races on Saturday and Sunday. Me, Liv and the boys headed out on Saturday, and it was a gorgeous day. Sunny, but a cool breeze. The breeze was kicking up some waves on the lake, which made the race probably more challenging. The course was set up from the pier to the break wall. We were able to stand along the board walk, and get an up close look as the jet skiers flew by, kicking up the waves and sending a nice mist our way. The organizers of the event had a drone flying over head, probably taking pictures. Those things creep me out, feel like I am being watched, lol.

The races went on for about 30 minutes, had no idea how they kept up with the laps, but there was a guy set up on the large gazebo with tons of speakers, announcing the race and playing music. This was the first year out here, and not many people were there. But it was really fun to watch.

 

 

After the race

FAVORITE VIDEO FROM THE INTERNET:
I have seen this video before, but recently a friend posted it to their FB page. I think this is absolutely incredible, playing ping pong with nunchucks!! I became a Bruce Lee fan when I saw the movie Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.
