Random bits and bobs

I spent the weekend outside in the garden because *sucks in breath, hands on hips* I happened to get a Certified Letter from my HOA saying that the weeds in my garden were unacceptable.


WAIT. Wait. Let me explain. I have no weeds. Well, there was one. ONE. This is in a flower bed that is over 60 feet long and just over 20 feet deep, mind. ONE WEED. The letter that I received a) had the wrong address in the photograph, which indeed had weeds and b) was dated in July.

To say I was affronted is putting it lightly. (Newcomers: I'm a Texas Master Gardener. I take that shit personally.) This was a perfect excuse to start the Fall rip-out of plants that are done for the season, dead head, divide bulbs, etc. So that's what I did. It's all tidy and open and empty and waiting for new babies and I am VERY HAPPY. And I took a nice picture and will be emailing the HOA later with a bit of a hemhem, you were saying? added.

I went to a neighbor's house on Friday for drinks, met the CUTEST GUY (not like that. Well, he's attractive but just keep reading) that was a) former Mormon, b) former Missionary, c) gay as rainbow glitter on a mustache and d) hilarious. AND ALSO E) A GARDENER. I told him he was my gay doppelganger and we spent hours swapping stories. ALSO. ALSO. AND. His mother and sister both sing in my father's exclusive choir. O_O I MEAN. (omg, my husband had to peel me off of him to get me home and now we're FB bff. Lol.)

AND LASTLY. My son came home from work last night with a straggly bouquet of flowers for me (he works in a grocery store as a sacker, so they were those kind of flowers) and I am still looking over at their bedraggled selves and grinning from ear to ear. I'm fairly easy to please, it must be said. <3 Also, AWWWW. <3

AND NOW I WANT NACHOS. Or guacamole. Or something fatty and bad for me. *grumbles* I am completely surrounded by a lack of bad for me foods, stupid healthy living.

Hahha, the idea of your garden being overrun with weeds is actually kind of remarkable. Before I got to the later bits of this post I was like, wait, WHAT HAS HAPPENED, WHY IS THE WORLD ASKEW?!

Awww, flowers. That is love and adorable.

I had guacamole on my sandwich at lunch. It was DELICIOUS, you should do the same.

THE WORLD IS IN ITS PROPER ORBIT, SWM. And I have new coffee beans, so THAT is back as it should be, as well!

I had a microwave meal for my lunch, and it was very unsatisfactory. (I mean, as far as they go it was fine. I just wanted, like, the Elvis Chicken from Chuys or something.) I am rectifying this by baking up a chocolate chip cookie for myself. :D *pats belly*

A microwave meal is NEVER a satisfactory alternative! It's like, pure fuel for the body that you just endure. YOU DESERVE MORE, STONEY! You deserve deliciousness!

Thank goodness for chocolate chip cooookies. I have a piece of chocolate cake waiting for me at home. It is calling my name.


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.
