Catch Up Fridays

(Sunshine) Hey! Where is everybody? I thought that I was extremely late in posting but this page is still empty. The week has been busy as usual. I am feeling much better. I turns out that I had an inflammation on my left side near my colon. I won't bore you with the medical term for what I have. It is what they call a self-limiting condition which in plain English means that it will take care of itself. It will just take some time. I have not spoken to anyone this week and I hope that everyone is doing well. Mr Sunshine is on his way back from Ottawa as I am blogging. Miss Teen Sunshine is at work. This is her second last shift of the season and Little Miss Sunshine is at home with me. The family room renovations have begun so my family room, dining room and part of the hall way are out of commission for now. I thought your family room and dining room were complete. What are you doing to them?Little Miss Sunshine has decided to go trick or treating with a few of her girlfriends and Miss Teen Sunshine is working until dinner time and I am not sure what she is doing next. My sister and possibly my dad (he is not sure yet) will be dropping in. Anyone who wishes to drop in and spend sometime with us or tick or treat with us is welcome to do so just be prepared for a cluttered house and a very simple evening. I hope to see you all on Sunday.
(Carolin) I am glad you are feeling better. We don't celebrate Halloween at the school nor do we do much at home so I have somewhat forgotten about it. The Husband is taking the little one and her friend to our church for a harvest party. I don't think we will be stopping by Sunshine, if it wasn't on a Sunday we would. But I don't want everyone up late as I have a busy week ahead of me.

As I type there are still two men in my house working on our new furnace and AC. Hopefully, it will be done today. The husband is gone for the day (I can't remember where he went but he is gone for the day) As I was on the phone with Cathy another man came to my house. I don't know who he is but of course I let him in and we went straight up to my room! Seems the husband made an appointment for this guy to give us a quote for attic insulation. Whatever!
(Cathy) Hubby thought it was the insulation guy as he and your Husband had already discussed it, lol! I know we are typing this on Saturday instead of Friday. I too had a busy week. Just dealing with the regular schedule. This weekend is my last weekend on this shift. I will enjoy Saturday night because as of next weekend I will have to be at work for six thirty am Sunday morning! The kids cooked a lot this past week. The younger one made a pasta dish (tortellini) with a tapanade sauce with green beans sauteed in lemon pepper and soy sauce. Sounds weird but really yummy! The older one made Thai chicken wraps with a peanut sauce. Deelish! He made the sauce with peanut butter and Catalina salad dressing! Ginger, garlic, soy sauce, chili sauce and lime juice were also added. He rolled them with lettuce, thin rice noodles and julienned carrots, cucumbers and red peppers. I acted as sous chef and while using our mandolin I sliced the end of my thumb almost off! What a lot of blood! It was a stupid move on my part and now I get to stumble around without the use of my right thumb. I have a renewed respect for the thumb. It's amazing the little things that cannot be done without it!

Now as for Halloween, this will be the first time that I will be working. It's a strange feeling. I really like Halloween, I dress up and play spooky music and have a lot of fun with all kids of all ages. Oh well, life goes on.
Have a wonderful weekend. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Cathy, did we not have the mandolin conversation when I was out there?! I still have nerve damage from when I sliced the end off my thumb over 4-5 years ago now!! We must learn to respect the mandolin...and the vegetable holder thingy that usually comes with them!!!! Hope your thumb feels better soon. Typing is a treat, by the way!
    Oh, and I just adjusted my April vacation (6-17th) so I am off the full week and a half. I figure one-way to Montreal, conference, tour, train to Toronto on the 13th, visit with you and family and one-way home from Toronto on the weekend. That way I should avoid my usual Toronto "messiness"!
