Links and bullet points

I spent the weekend blasting my side garden (which is 20 feet deep and 80 feet long) because I can no longer just pull the encroaching Bermuda. We destroyed so many plants with the brush cutter... My husband sent me inside to keep from having a heart attack over the horror. (I did make him spare my heirloom bulb bed, of course.)

We then tilled up...about 1/3 of it before we gave up for the day. I couldn't grip a glass of water without a struggle last night, that's how achy my hands were. Yeesh. We filled 5 30-gallon compost bags with the clippings and dug up Bermuda. I think we have another two or three still waiting to be dug. HEY WHO WANTS TO COME WORK IN 100F HEAT WITH ME? *crickets*

Thought not.

Fun things for you to read because you know Mondays aren't your favorite:


(And thank you, guys, for the comments, the likes, the links and the love! We appreciate it!)

Today the kids and I are going to make those Nutella lava cookies (we didn't get to last week, after all.) I'll report back on the nomminess. *salutes*

I look forward to hearing how the cookies turn out. I has awesome binding time with the 4 year old while making Mexican Wedding Cookies.

I really hate grass.

I just posted the recipe! THEY ARE NOMMY.

I really hate Bermuda. Like, with a passion.

Yay! Also I should not post on my phone while exhausted and breast feeding. Typos.

I HATE grass! I'd rather have a veggie/flower garden than a large yard. Bleruge.

COOKIES! EEEE!

and I pulled out all of the grass so I could have flower beds, but it somehow came back because it is evil.

I dreamed I went to Comic-Con and made out with Lucy Lawless and she was like I REALLY ENJOY YOUR RECAPS and it was glorious.

THAT IS THE BEST STORY I HAVE EVER HEARD, LIZ.

With the exception of my jealousy. BUT TAKE THAT AWAY AND YES.

You know, I keep seeing your pictures and stories about your garden adventures, and they simultaneously make me really excited and absolutely terrified to start tackling my brand-new-to-me yards. (Yay, we have a house! Boo, there are things taking over the pretty flower beds the previous owners put in!) But then you say things like "100F heat" and I realize that whatever my yard/garden ends up doing to me, it's nothing like doing the same thing in your neck of the woods. :)

In other news, again, THANK YOU for HDJM. Like, a lot. I'm getting to the point now of wishing there was a recap on your site for every show I watch, and it makes my heart happy to see the ones you do have. So, thank you thank you thank you!

Ha, the HEEEEAAAAT. Normally I love it. But when I'm sweating and digging and hoisting, not so much. ;)

And I am SO HAPPY to hear that about HDJM!! Aww, you just made my night, thank you!!

Ack, that grass, super insidious! I hope the blasting does the trick. Hahaha, you don't even want to know how useless I am in this heat. If I came to help, I would be swooning on your couch and making sun-tea for everyone. Though you have central air, don't you? *pauses* *moves in*

And yay for awesome sounding cookies and HDJM recaps!

You know, I would actually love you to come recline on the outdoor chaises with a fruity drink and tell me stories while I worked. I'm usually out there alone, so company is all I ask for... *stoic, aside from lip wobble*

Hee.

Awwww, I would do some reclining and drink sipping and story telling, and then I would buckle down and help and try not to get too much in your way! <333333

Because I love you? I would spare you the digging. <3 I just went out for an hour and am ready to fall asleep for twenty years.

You fall asleep -- I'll distract the kitties with a dangle-y toy and get the kids to work on getting rid of school clothes that no longer fit! ♥

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
