Malcolm and Patsy Sharing Some Memories With You

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Our daughters got me a certificate for pedicure and manicure in Yuba City so yesterday I went and had two heavenly hours! Thank you darling daughters for your generosity and for pampering your Mom! The girl took more time with me than she needed to and we had a ball. Here is a picture of the pedicure!

Our family loves the food at Costa Vida so I experimented with a recipe to make a similar enchilada and it turned out really good. We had it for lunch today. I made it with pork loin roast and a sauce made with green enchilada sauce, garlic, brown sugar and Dr. Pepper topped with cheese and sour cream. Yummy

Window seats and valances

Malcolm and I got some seating foam, fabric and dacron wrap so I could upholster the cushions in our window seats and enough fabric to make new valances for the three windows in the room. We really like the change and the touch of color it adds to our room. The window seats also have hinged tops so we have additional storage for blankets, pillow, etc.

Valentine Day

Malcolm got me a beautiful peach rose for Valentine day. I love the vase too. It is such a sweet experience to be remembered by my honey! Thank you, Angel Face - you are loved and so appreciated!

Paige's 7th Birthday

Paige ordered chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. It was fun and tasted delicious! she is adding the candles !
This is the finished product with us enjoying the time together!

For Paige's 7th birthday, we had her stay overnight, have dinner and bake her cake and decorate it. We had such a good time and we are such buddies. She loves to come over and cook and hang out with us. The next day, we took the cake and some other food and had dinner with her family and Great Grandma Weston whose birthday is the same week. This is now a tradition for them both.

Subway art for Valentine

In our Relief Society in Liberty Ward we made these subway art projects. We had a black frame and tore up pieces of paper and just glued them on in a haphazard pattern. They turned out quite nice. Thanks to Lisa Hunter for all her work on this project.


I was given a start last year on these violets and this year they have spread and blossomed. They have a wonderful fragrance and are a dainty and beautiful addition to our front planter.

A current Picture of Russell
Malcolm and the Jelly Belly Car
Malcolm and I went to Martinez for some doctor appointments and stopped on our way home at the Jelly Belly factory and had a fun time picking out our favorite flavor of jelly beans. Later we met Russell for dinner at Red Robin's prior to going to Wyatt's wedding reception. We met some old friends and had a nice visit with them during the reception. It was a full day and we were weary when we got home - and crashed!
