Saturday Hoopla

Last Saturday was pretty much a wash out for creating more goodies. 
We had to go to the brick contractor to pick out a brick to replace our fireplace chimney which is currently crumbling as I write.
We knew that it would be an impossible task to match our existing brick,
but we had to get it as close to possible.
Thankfully the brick contractor let us take as many bricks home as we wanted to.
We were able to find one that almost matches, so now our
bricklayer (Bob's cousin) has to purchase them with his discount
and replace our chimney
Then we had to make a stop over to Home Depot for a new Garage door,
as ours broke and fell off the track. It was one of those old heavy wood ones,
so we were thankful it did not fall on anyone.
They did not have any in stock, so we had to order it online...
which was stupid, because if we ordered it from the store vs their online website,
the door would have been $100 more...does this make sense?
The door comes delivered on Thursday.

Then I had to go work the store, because apparantly Bob forgot he gave me Saturday's off...just like a man...but I did it. You all can give him grief...I already told him I was going to be a tattletale. ~Smile~
Sunday I was able to get a little bit done...
Kitties
Black, Brown and Tan Kitties
Six of each color
Then I started making Halloween candy.
Do you remember getting these in your Trick or Treat bag?
At first my family thought these were real. LOL
Working on more...
Stay tuned!
Prim Candy Blessings to all!

  5. Your primitive kitties are adorbale! I hear ya on the house stuff... we jsut had our chimney flashing redone b/c it had been done improperly, and the people who redid it did a really bad job... so now another guy has to come out and redo it...again. Where is the finesse?

  10. Adorable little kitties....but those candies are absolute perfection! Those were always one of my very favorites and I still buy several bags each season (although, last year, I found a new love that I like almost as well - candy corn taffy....doesn't taste anything like candy corn...which is fine by me....but yummy.) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (Yikes....I got WAYYY behind here again...Sorry!)
