Eye didn’t see that

Can you believe it is already September 1st?  I know, I can’t either and I’m still over here sweating my ass off because, Florida.  But then again, in a few months, old man winter is going to roll in and y’all are going to be freezing and well be over here like this:


We didn’t see Larry again yesterday.  That little bird took off and didn’t look back.  It makes me happy to know that we raised an independent little guy who can take care of himself but I do miss him terribly.  I also put meal worms outside constantly just in case…..

Yesterday was supposedly the last nice day of sun before afternoon storms so I decided to go ahead and cut the grass and pull the weeds in the mulch beds before we go down to Englewood for our annual fishing trip with my sister.  I was in my own little  world raking away some of the weeds around the fence line and I thought I heard Larry Bird when I raised up without really looking and stabbed myself in the eye with a burglar bush.


Have I mentioned that I’m an idiot?

Thank God I was wearing my contact lenses though it still hurt like a bitch.  Thankfully there was no major damage but MacGyver has banned me from lawn work for the rest of the weekend, you know because I finished it already.

Happy Friday y’all!  Tune in next week, I’ve got some great things to tell you about and I’ll be in Englewood with the Davenports for our annual Snook fishing trip!

What are your plans for the weekend?




Wait, what? It’s Friday already?

Holy Crap y’all, this week just flew by, didn’t it?  I usually love it when that happens except it never does when it’s a regular work week.  It only happens when I’m having a birthday and family is in town.  Am I right?


Anywho, guess what?  I got the bike!  And. She’s a beauty!

And yes, I’m wearing my new Harry Potter t-shirt!

We opened our presents late on Wednesday night so I didn’t get to ride her until Thursday morning and oh my Lord, the difference between my old bike and my new one is like the difference between a Ford and a Mercedes.  VAST.

Specialized Bike

I wanted to go for a ride this morning but I didn’t have time.  I have an appointment with a client which requires leaving the house and so I’m forced to take a shower and put on some actual clothing other than my workout clothes.

I meant to update yesterday but honestly, I had a fun hangover.  We went to the mall and first we went to all the stores that give out free shit on your birthday.

disney buttons

Gotta love the Disney store!

And then, my sister-in-law and I went to this new store, ‘the winey wench’ to do some adulting.

wine slushee

Yes, that’s right, we walked around the mall drinking wine slushee’s!  How cool is that?  And while we were doing the wine slushee thing, thing 1 and thing 2 got pedicures from sucker fish.  No, I’m not kidding.

The sads just hit me because they’re leaving today, but every year my birthday is better and better because I get to share it with my nephew and family.

What are you doing this weekend?

Have you had a fish pedicure?  Ever heard of it?

It’s pure bliss!

I’m just popping in real quick like because I have to tell you about something.  Have you tried this fruit yet?

Golden Honeydew

What?  No?


You have got to try it.  It’s a golden hondeydew and it will change your life.  I wasn’t sure how to even describe it so I stole this definition from the internets.

The Golden honeydew melon has a similar shape and texture to the common  honeydew. Its most obvious difference is its bright golden-hued skin. When ripe its skin is firm, thin and smooth. Its flesh is succulent, velvety and sweet. A faint aroma and a slight opening at its blossom end will also indicate ideal ripeness. An overripe melon is soft to the touch and it will develop a bitter flavor in its flesh. Like other honeydew melons, the Golden honeydew is relatively large, weighing an average of 4 to 8 pounds.

I found them at the local WalMart.  Go buy one and try it for yourself.  You will thank me.

Have a fabulous weekend!
