Observations at BevMo

If you are too lazy to make your own simple syrup, I probably don't want to be your friend.
On a side note- gainful employment is bad for both my attitude & my blogging.

Gardening 101

So I wanted an herb garden. How hard can that be?
Step 1: Gather all ingredients: pots, seeds, soil, wooden pot stand that Fred made in high school, gloves & hat, refreshing beverage, and gnome.Step 2: Put hat on & wonder if trying to grow anything at 100 degrees is a good idea.
Step 3: Wonder why you had to buy 10lbs of potting soil when you really only needed 3 cups. Think Lowe's is out to get you.
Step 4: Curse when you realize you bought the only bag of potting soil that doesn't have the proper equipment to just "slide open".
Step 5: Plant & pray.
I'll keep you posted.

a little bit of West Virginia

Because like pepperoni rolls, they just don't make tomato salad West of Parkersburg.


Today is National Doughnut Day.
Today is also my last day of unemployment. Back to the grind on Monday.

Dressing the Part

I had been blaming my lack of physical activity on a lot of things- chiefly among them a job that kept me busy for 8 hours a day.
Since that excuse is now null & void I decided to begin working out. Since the weight room here is under construction I decided to swim some laps. Here is how it's going:
Day 1- Lost right contact lens before completion of lap 1. Bikini bottoms not staying on as I swim. Accidentally moon pool full of moms & kids after swim practice.
Day 2- Bought goggles. Couldn't find the top that matches bikini bottoms that fit. Not mooning anyone, but very much looking like crazy person.
Day 3- Bought one piece suit. Feel like I should be able to swim better than I actually do.
Day 4- Imagine swim team moms are mocking me & thinking their 5 year olds can out-swim me. Really, they can.

lazy days of summer

It's hot already. Me & the dogs hide in the house most of the day & soak up the A/C. The dogs are getting so lazy they didn't even notice the visitor we had napping out back yesterday afternoon.
