October #1 to do list, fun with grands, a new house? Replies …….

Hello everyone 
First, here is my “hope to do” list for this week 

3 of our grands were here yesterday.  One of them has been wanting to make a decorated layer cake for the longest time so we made that happen.  
I made the cake and the frosting with kiddo-help.  Then 6 year old Jackson did most of the cake icing and all of the decorating 
He did decide frosting a cake is much harder than it looks on cooking shows.  
   

Jackson with his masterpiece ❤️ 

Cora is doing just fine and we love having her in our family. 
She doesn’t stay with us on weekdays anymore  but attends a very nice childcare.  

Our daughter and family are hoping to buy a bigger home.  I looked at one of them this weekend with them,  it’s an older home in an older neighborhood.  
The owners lived there for 60 years and were serious about having a pretty yard.  
There are 2 fish ponds in the backyard with living fish 
You’ll have to look close at the bottom photo but the little goldfish are swimming in there 

The hedge along the front needs trimmed but it looks like Christmas tree branches. I’ve never seen shrubs like this.  
It’s very pretty!  It’s a long row of hedges all along the length of the garage, maybe 4-5 feet tall.

More about the Gold Bond crepe erase lotion- it’s an excellent moisturizer and I use it anywhere I use lotion but I’ve noticed the most improvement  on my hands, arms and neck.  
It does NOT have that normal Gold Bond eucalyptus like scent at all. 

About the waffle weave towels- almost no lint compared to last new terry cloth towels we bought.  

About those big red books - they are old cast-off library books- bound Life magazine issues, mostly from the 1940s.  
They are so fun to read and very interesting- but- they are so big and heavy! 


It’s a beautiful day here in OK and it’s time for me to get busy 
❤️ Rhonda

I'm going to try that Gold Bond lotion - thanks!

Jackson did a great job on his decorating, especially as cakes are very hard to ice.

God bless.

I bought the Gold Bond and it is so expensive! I tried it on one arm and one leg and can tell the difference. Now, I am going to add in neck and chest. I still need a tub of this!

Thanks for the heads up on the Crepe Erase___not that I need it or anything (enter a sarcastic face emoji here)

I'll check out that crepe erase product for sure. What a lovely back yard with ponds!

I was just thinking of Cora this morning. So glad that she's adjusted well!
