It was a dark and!

A dark and rainy day here today. The dogs were being particularly pesky, so I decided to go to Kroger's and Sam's Club for supplies.

I did pretty well at Kroger's, especially since they send me targeted coupons when I use my wavy-thing card. I managed to save 48% today, including their coupons for free Cheerios, and money off of produce.

Sam's Club was for meat and cheese, and some fine dining for lunch. Hot dog and Diet Coke. That there is some good eats!

When I got home, I had 10 pounds of ground beef to deal with, along with some other meat to separate and wrap, and 6 pounds of cheese to shred. I ended up cooking 5 pounds of the beef to freeze for quick dinners in future, and freezing the rest of the beef in 1 pound portions.

The dogs were going nuts with all the meat cooking! Since I wouldn't give them the steaks they requested, I let them have the (cooled) pans a pre-rinse cycle, ala dog.

Nick wedges his pan into the corner, as always, but Sassy hasn't figured that out yet. She licks SO hard, that the pan travelled around the kitchen a couple of times. First we go one way,

then go the other. Repeat.

The rains have come in waves. Somewhere in the night, poor Mr and Mrs Frog-tree flung themselves off of their bench!

That's better, but they look like they have been "eatin' sh*t!" Mr and Mrs Frog-tree have been with us for 16 years, living in every garden we have had since then.

I told you it was dark today!

Oh, and the project I was working on when Stud Muffin was absconding with MY PIECE OF PIE, here it is, still in progress.

I will leave you with this helpful list courtesy of my blog-less friend Chicago Angie:

Who would have thought the solution to everyday problems was this easy?


Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop.

Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.

For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives; then you'll be afraid to cough.

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.


Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Im glad I aint the only one that feeds the scrapings to me pets out of the pots lol this morning me chickens had the pot of left over rice :).... well, it goes in the dishwashwer after :)

I kinda like the laxative/cough solution. Probably a good thing that I'm not a doctor, eh??

I know some people would choke about the dogs getting the pots, but they are part of the family and love to be included. We don't feed them plates full of food, just little licks. I wash the pots afterwards, so no harm done!

Oh, and they do a great job of degreasing a pan!!
