Homer Depot ornament

We picked up my son from school. He needed a haircut. His hair is hanging down to his eyes. He looks like a sheepdog. He gets in the car and we head to Walmart. My son said “Where are you going?” We are going to get you a haircut. First we went to Home Depot. My husband went over to the ceiling fans. There was one on sale for $71 so we got that one. I then looked at the Christmas ornaments. They had Homer Depot ornaments. It is a guy with a hand saw with 2012 on the saw. It has a wood cut out tree beside him, like he just cut out he wood tree with his saw. Cool, I bought it. I put it beside my little Christmas village but he looked like the giant that wanted to cut up all the little people.DSCF0084

So I hung him on the Christmas tree, so he would not scare all the little people in my village. See that clock shoppe, I have to take that back. I just bought it the other day, and I thought it was so cute. I was looking at all the little shops I have and one was turned the wrong way, so I turned it around and looked in the little window, it is a clock shop too. I don’t want two clock shops or shoppes on the same street. We were at K-mart the other day and we were going to buy a steak house one, but I didn’t because it was $40. I guess I will go back and buy that because I am now returning the clock shoppe.

We then go to Walmart and when we turn into the parking lot hubby said “Which one?”, meaning which door was by the beauty salon. I said “The end door.”, meaning the 2nd door, not the 1st door by us. He said “Endore where the Ewocks live?”

“No the end door, not this one, that one down there.” I said. We go into the hair salon and the lady said it was going to be a 20 minute wait. We left. We went to another hair cutting place and got my son’s hair cut right away. His haircut looks great. They were even running a special for this card you buy, you can get a haircut for $9.99, with no expire date. I didn’t get to use it today. We bought 10 haircuts for that card. (limit of 10) I am going to get my haircut next week for $10, such a deal.

I need to go get my son to take his picture next to the Christmas tree for pictures for the Christmas cards I am going to send out. Maybe I will have him hold the Homer Depot ornament.

Thankgiving day

My day started out with a strange dream.

I am in this house. This girl grabs my arm. “Hide, under a table.” We crawl under this table. She is frantic. “There is a vampire woman in the house. If you eat these, you will be safe!” she says. She is stuffing something in her mouth. She throws them at me. “What are they?”, I say. She ignores me. I move away from her and hide behind a couch. I hear a crash, this vampire woman comes into the room. She is growling and knocks over the table. The woman under the table, is grabbing the red things she told me to eat. I put one in my mouth, just to be safe from the vampire. Is is cinnamon red hots. I love red hots. I didn’t know they would keep you safe from vampires. The woman is fighting with the vampire. She stuffs red hots into the vampires mouth. The vampire is screaming and smoke is coming out of her mouth and ears. She turns and sees me. Oh no! I grab for the bag of red hots. I stuff more into my mouth. Maybe she does not like cinnamon tasting blood. I start eating them and look at the bag. It is now a Hershey bag and the red hots are cinnamon Hershey’s chocolate. I think “Since when do they make cinnamon chocolate Hersheys. The vampire grabs me. I am eating those cinnamon chocolate drops like crazy and starting to panic. Then I wake up. “Whew, it is just a dream.” I am glad it is just a dream, but such a strange one.

It is Thanksgiving day here in the states. I bought a turkey to cook.

It is a small turkey, but it is only for me, my husband and my son. I cook turkeys in a turkey bag. (They are special clear oven bags). They always turn out delicious cooked in those. You just put the turkey in the bag with some flour, put on the tie thing that comes with it and cook it for 2 hours, well my size of turkey will be 2 hours. Take it out of the oven and eat it. No mess and the oven is clean. I am making carrots in the pressure cooker. Pressure cooked carrots are the best. I make mashed potatoes and gravy. I am having Stovetop corn bread stuffing. I love that stuff. Cranberry sauce. My husband also wants one of those green bean casseroles with cream of mushroom soup and Durkey Fried onions mixed in the soup and beans. That tastes good. I have brown and serve rolls. I bought a cinnamon color candles for the table. We went to Costco and bought their pumpkin pie. It is the best. They must sell thousands of them because they had lots of pie sitting out. The store was packed yesterday with people getting the pies. I got an apple pie too.

I had a piece of that last night with a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Yummy.

I bought a case of these cute little coke bottles. I love Coca-Cola. Isn’t these cute?

The price is not cute though, $20 for 24 bottles and they are only 8.5 ounces each.

I will be watching Amazon.com for their hourly specials, they have this folding chair coming up, that I want to see if they mark it down cheap. This cook stove is coming up at 5PM I might try to get, if it is a bargain. I thought I would try to get it, to cook on when I try to make pickles. It made a mess of my stove when I was trying to cook them. I am not going out and fight the crowds for any sales. I tried that last year, it was a giant crowd and awful just trying to get around the store. Never again.

I know some of you don’t have Thanksgiving day where you live. We get the holiday off and have a nice day. You that don’t have Thanksgiving, have a great day today. Thanks for reading my blog. I will try to remember to take a picture of the cooked turkey, but I might be watching for the sales on
Amazon. They are going to have a Sony 16GB memory card on there later. I hope I get that one.

Update: We ate the turkey too fast for me to get a picture. I was so busy getting the stuff on the table and the turkey cut up that I didn’t get a picture. It was so good. I didn’t even have pie.     I didn’t get a thing on Amazon.com black friday sale. I looked and the things I wanted sold out in like 2 seconds. It came available and then it was sold out. That totally sucked. I drove by RC Wiley tonight (to take back a movie I got at Redbox in front of the 7-11 store}. There were 2 people covered in blankets, sitting there for the store to open tomorrow morning. They are going to wait there all night for the Black Friday sale tomorrow. It is supposed to get to 32 degrees tonight. I would not sit in a lawn chair all night in the freezing cold just to buy something on sale. They must want something bad to do that.

My son wants to be a zombie for Halloween

My son wants to be a zombie for halloween. In his photography class, his teacher told him to take a black and white picture of himself and make it into a zombie. I went to picmonkey.com and made him a zombie. They have different effects to put on your picture.

I watched some Youtube videos and saw a lot of videos on  how to do zombie makeup. One girl just glued on toilet paper on her face and drew teeth and it looked great. We went to Walmart in the halloween section and we bought this zombie’s eye. It was only $5, which is better than $28.

That should be interesting getting that thing on. I need to go buy some grey to match it for his skin. I also bought me some light up fingertip gloves. They are really neat. The tips flash in different colors constantly. I am going to wear those while I pass out candy.

Happy Halloween. Update: The actual Halloween makeup.

We didn’t use the zombie eye. He could not see well out of it. I just did the makeup and used fake blood. We cut up his shirt and put fake blood on it. I had him lay in dirt for this picture. He loved his look.

Carrots, apples and pears for the horses

The other day I saw the wild horses down the street. I went into the house and cut up 4 apples and grabbed some carrots. I went outside and waited for the horses to come closer. They crossed the street and came into my neighbor’s yard. The one that she put poles and string all around. That didn’t stop them, they stepped on the poles and broke them and knocked down the string and went into her yard and ate that tempting grass. They have torn up her yard.  I started calling to the horses to come to me, that I had apples. I threw one, so they could see it. 4 horses came over and ate the apples from my hand. I could not get the apples out of the bag I had fast enough. They were impatient for those apples. I then gave them some carrots. They take them right from your hand. When I ran out, they were looking like “Well give me more.” They finally walked off. They came back later in the day, so I cut up 2 pears. A colt ran up to me so I gave him a pear. He took it and spit it out. He didn’t like it. He kept putting his head in my bowl, but he didn’t like the pears. A couple of other horses tried the pears and decided that they liked them. They ate them, but the colt just watched and would not eat them.

The horses came back by a 3rd time later in the day. I got some carrots and 2 horses came over and ate them. The neighbor on my left got new grass about 3 weeks ago. She got it because the horses tore up her yard. They like the new grass, they rip it out and leave it torn up all over her lawn. They are standing in her yard again, eating her grass, leaving hoof prints all over her yard. Her sprinklers came on, the horses loved that. They stood over the sprinkler valve, taking a nice shower. They were drinking the water. I held out carrots and two horses came over to me and ate them. The other horses were too busy with the sprinklers to come over. We finished our yard and put in nice rock and raked it all smooth. The horses walk across it to her grassy yard, beside my yard. You can see the hoof prints all over my yard in the rocks.

The horses went across the street to eat the grass in the other yards. My son was afraid to give the horses carrots from his hand, so he would drop them.

If you look across the street, there is a baby colt horse, tan color, standing by his mom. She is brown. He got playful and started going around and around her in circles. He would kind of run and skipped hop around her. She just stood there while he circled around and around her. He was so cute. He would run up to other colts and then back around her. He was wanting to play, but no other horse wanted to play.

I ran out of carrots so the horses walked away.

A doll

The other day I went to the parking lot at school and parked and waited for school to let out. I sit and wait for my son to come get in my car. I usually sit there listening to audio books. I noticed this big black truck pull up and back up into a space near me.

I was watching him back in and noticed something strange on the front of his truck. I took a picture, because it was hard to believe. He had a doll strapped to the front grill of his truck.

I bet he read 50 Shades of Grey……and loved it.
