Tuesday Update?

Okay, so I totally brainfarted out on the Sunday Update and then I was going to do it yesterday, but I forgot.  So here we are.  Stupid holiday weekend.  Don't even get me started on 'Labor Day'.  

I spent a lot of this past weekend reading.  Finished the book I had been reading last week on Sunday.  Made it most of the way through another book yesterday.  Good times.

I baked a lot, too.  Well, on the weekend anyway.  I made cake cookies on Sunday.  Then yesterday, I made biscuits in the morning and homemade pizza in the afternoon.  Something went wonky with the pizza dough.  I used all the right measurements, I swear I did, but the dough was really wet.  I added more flour and more flour and still more flour.  And I probably kneaded the damn stuff for 15 minutes.  (Which I am paying for this morning with ouchie arms.)  In the end, it worked out, though.  I was afraid it would be bland, but I brushed the dough with a butter, garlic salt, Parm mixture and it was yummy.  I did end up with two pizzas out of it.  I did one pepperoni, mushroom, olives and the other pepperoni, ham, mushrooms.  Loads of leftover slices.  Yay.  Lunch and dinner!  

In the realm of activity, Hubs and I took a walk one night after dinner.  Then Saturday, we worked together to clean the car.  We did the windows and vacuumed and scrubbed the dashboard.  Detailing... yeah, that's it.  Anyway, Callie's the newest looking 19 year old car on the road, man.  After we were done, Hubs took her for a spin and got gas for the lawn mower.  Then he spent yesterday mowing the lawn.  Oh, and I lost some more weight.  Weight: 170.2.

Because I had the time, I did some research for work, too.  Saves me from having to do it today, so yay.

The fawns are starting to lose their spots.  :sniffle:  

I saw a frog.  That might not seem noteworthy to you, but it was a big leopard frog and I probably haven't seen one of those since I was a kid.  I spent a lot of kid time playing with leopard frogs.  Sadly, this one did not want to play with me and he hopped away.  We get lots of toads here and the occasional tree frog, but leopard frogs... I knew they were in Missouri, but I'd never seen one here.  Yay.

And that's about it.  Exciting stuff, eh?  How have things been in your world?  Did you have a nice long weekend?  


  1. Happy Tuesday! I figured you didn't post on Sunday for lack of anything cheerful to say, but you had lots of good stuff. Hurray for frogs and losing weight! And for rescuing the pizza(s)! And a fancy clean car!

    Cleo is still a Brat Cat (tm), but she's working hard on her cute looks. Tail in the air, head on the table but twisted around to look up at me with big eyes. Chewing on the corners of my outgoing packages (NOT cute!). Begging for food when her bowl is full (I haven't figured out the point of that one yet).

    I need to delete my eBay account. Toooo many treasures. LOL!

  2. Oops. I opened this. Read it. Had the comments opened ready to respond and then...uhm... 🤷🏼‍♀️ In my defense I did take a hard 3-hour nap yesterday, after a morning run to Wallyworld, followed by other stuff. Anyway. Sorry 'bout that.

    That's about the sum total of my life. The James Gang hooked up for dinner Monday night to celebrate LG's and Uncle Fix-It's b-days and a local pizza place. Food was good, company was better, but the place is so noisy it's hard to hear. Anyway, it was fun. We watched college football, a lot of Cards baseball, and basically vegged. It happens. LOL
