Olympic Contender

I love the way he throws the weights at the end and screams. Just like the big guys do.

I'm Soooo Damaged

I am sooooo damaged. I haven't cleaned house at all this week. The puppies need a bath because they are getting stinky. I need to also wash their blankets. But my cooking is priceless. Woot! Really, I need to get off the internet. I have been spending way too much time on Pinterest and playing online games. I need an intervention.

OH LOOKY!!! I got some more seed porn! YES! Yes, I did! These came in the mail this morning and I was likeHoly Shit they love me! I harvested a lot of  the veggie seeds from many of the crops we grew last year, so I won't be buying too much this year. David also wants to add 3 more raised beds for more veggies and he wants to set up a few small starter beds for watermelons and cantaloupe that he loves. I want butternut and acorn squash for my pumpkin pies and pumpkin for fall decor.

I will be buying quite a bit of flower seeds and a few flowering  plants that I get from Home Desperate. I went through all the seed catalogs and found everything I want to grow for the potted garden in the courtyard. I have sooooo many empty pots in the garden shed and I really want to use them all this year. I need to repot my cannas and sift through the soil in my barrels. The squirrels stashed a lot of pecans in November and December so I need to start sifting before they sprout. So much work so little time.

Hello February

Short Monday Morning Blog

DAYUM!!! It was 84 degrees yesterday. The sun was shining and we had a light breeze. It was absolutely beautiful. It's going to be the same today with more wind blowing than it was yesterday but it will be just as pretty. Since the weather was great David did a few chores over the weekend. Yes! It was strange because I didn't have to nag him. He actually did something on his own. So, so strange. Well, the puppies were also happy about the warmer weather. The girls, Lucy and Pebbles played with the tether ball most of the day while Spunky warmed himself in the sunshine. He loves doing that when he gets the chance.

Oh! I have to tell y'all! I got my MOJO back. I'm cooking again. YES! I know, right?!? After almost a whole week of fucking up everything in the kitchen, it felt wonderful to make dinner without a single problem. I'm still dancing inside my brain. Anywho, things are back to normal around here. I just hope it stays that way for a long time.

Well the puppies are nagging me to take them to the dog park. I better take them now before it gets too warm for them to run around.

Friday Funny

The Ransome 

A blonde was down on her luck. In order to raise money, she decided to kidnap a kid and hold him for ransom. So she went to a playground, grabbed a kid, and took him behind a tree. “I’ve kidnapped you,” said the blonde. She then proceeded to write a note saying, “I’ve kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning, put $10,000 in a paper bag and place it under the pecan tree next to the playground. Signed, A Blonde.” The Blonde then pinned the note to the kid’s shirt and sent him home to show his parents.
The next morning the blonde checked under the tree and sure enough, a paper bag was sitting there. The Blonde opened the bag and found the $10,000 with a note that said, “How could you do this to a fellow blonde?”

Start With A Joke

OH Oh! Before you go any further reading today's mess, I have a joke for y'all.

Marriage Humor

Wife: "What are you doing?"
Husband: "Nothing."
Wife: "Nothing . . . ? You've been reading our marriage certificate for an hour."
Husband: "I'm looking for the expiration date."

If this didn't at least make ya smile, then I give up on this job.
Anywho, LOOK! Seed Porn! YES! I got like seven catalogs of seed porn in the last 3 days. It's magnificent! These guys find out you like seed porn . . . it's like a virus! It just keeps coming in the mail like forever. 
Notice the escaped chicken behind the counter
Okay, on to not so better things. I am having a cooking crisis. I can't seem to cook at all this week. Everything that I have made for dinner has ended up really nasty. Last night was the last straw. The salt shaker came apart and the whole thing ended up in my meatloaf as I was blending it in the mixer. I use sausage meat and lean hamburger and blend it together with my Kitchenaid mixer using the big paddles. That way things get sufficiently mixed together. Well, there was no way to save that so it ended up in the trash and I had to go shopping and get everything to start over. 
Things seemed to go great. Until, yeah, the oven timer refused to work properly. The meat loaf burned, the baked potatoes burned. The built in oven timer was stuck on the first minute and didn't turn the oven off when it was supposed to. I have used that oven timer so many times before and everything would turn out perfect. The oven would turn off and the timer would let me know with the alarm. My meatloaves and casseroles would always come out perfect. Not dry, nothing over or undercooked. 

My cool oven timer from Amazon
I can still use the stove and the oven, I just have to check on things and use my old timer that I used with the previous oven before we replaced it with the new one. Remembering to carry it around with me fucking sucks.

So, I give up on cooking for the rest of this month. David will just have to eat dinner from a can. I'm not taking any more chances this week. I'm making canned chili tonight. Nothing flashy. Heating everything in the microwave oven. I blame this past week on the Mercury retrograde direct station. Don't understand that? Google it! Poke me, I'm done!
