Posts Tagged ‘Monday humor’

1. It definitely looks like fall in our neighborhood today. How did so many of the trees don entirely new coats of color overnight?

2. Because it looks like fall, I just want to stay home, drink spicy tea (thanks, Brandi) and sit by the fire like a warm, lazy slug.

3. I spent the entire weekend repainting my bathroom. A project that should have taken two hours, in my head. Things are sparkly, lovely and completely delusional in my head.

4. Because I spent the entire weekend repainting my bathroom, polishing, scrubbing and putting things back to rights, the rest of my house looks like a stage 3 disaster zone.

5. My BFF brought me pumpkins yesterday afternoon.

6. Because she caught me in the midst of my project, I was completely disoriented by the fumes and even more loopy than usual. I didn’t even ask her to stay long enough for a cup of tea.

7. Captain Cavedweller bought me the most wonderful rug for the bathroom for my birthday.

8. Because of that blasted rug that didn’t match my walls, I had to repaint the bathroom. Which was so much easier than returning the rug for a different color.

9. I’m trying to meet my self-imposed deadline of finishing my two holiday books before Halloween.

10. Because of my self-imposed deadline, I don’t see the disaster in my house getting any better anytime soon. In fact it may get worse as I make the final recipes for my holiday entertaining book and snap some photos.

She Who Isn’t Quite Ready For It To Be Monday

After posting The Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Watermelon Granita Friday, I couldn’t stop thinking about how tasty it looked. So I bought a melon and made a small batch on Saturday.

We ate it all.

Not a bit left.

It was that good.

If you love watermelon, give this a try. It is fast, easy and very tasty.

Captain Cavedweller found a bag of authentic two-stick old fashioned popsicles at our local Safeway. I nearly cried when he brought them home and handed them to me. Hello, frozen sugar on two-sticks. I missed you so.

Despite the fact that I know I can sunburn in a matter of minutes, despite the fact that I constantly remind CC to put on sunscreen, despite the fact that even the cats tried keep me from staying outside too long, I stayed outside too long. And am sunburned. And lobster like. And ready to crawl in our big chest freezer. I may need to find somewhere else to store my beloved popsicles.

How was your weekend?
