Halloween Oreo Truffles and Falling Down the Stairs
It finally happened, I knew it would, it was just a matter of time. I fell down the stairs. I am a pretty clumsy person and falling down the stairs is something I do a couple times a year, falling up the stairs I do a couple times a year too. So, it has been way past due, to fall down the stairs, because I haven't done it since I had my hip replaced 10 months ago.
I was in a hurry, it was early in the morning, I wasn't hanging on to the railing because my hands were full, and I slipped on the carpet with my socks. I banged down about 7 steps and landed on my butt close to the bottom of the stairs. I had to sit there for just a minute to make sure everything was o.k. and Dave comes rushing out of the bedroom all upset. I was fine, it was really more of a slide than anything, but I had to get the lecture of "you are so clumsy in the morning, you need to slow down..."
I won't admit to Dave, but I was a little sore the next day, not "oh my, I've hurt something in my hip." type of sore, but the "oh my, I'm in my mid 50's and I just fell down the steps." type of sore. Getting old is not easy.
Well, we had a fun weekend and getting ready for Halloween I made these little treats for the office. They are Oreo Truffles and just decorated with colored candy melts, sugar eyes, colored sugar, and cookie pieces. It was a fun project and a nice treat for the office on Halloween.
I hope you enjoyed your trick or treaters!
