Okay, so, now what? Hmmmm....OH. I KNOW! I'm going to be completely random, but I don't know if it will be a dozen; more like a half-dozen. Here's some random stuff that's been going on around the house:
1. One of my measuring cups:
2. Hummingbirds...where are you? We actually saw one a couple of days ago, but, as it was going toward the feeder, husband saw a
3. I saw this reason for having clover in the yard:
Sorry for the poor quality and the moving of the camera! Here's a still picture:
4. I made an 8 Minute Light & Fruity Pie: It's a summer-time treat at our house. So easy to make, and you can use sugar-free jello and fat-free or light cool whip:
Click here for the recipe.
5. I got all of the plants in the ground!
I also got really brave and planted a few flowers in my planter on the front porch. I had been using fake flowers, but decided to be really courageous!
6. Tough decision:
Yep, another season of "Hell's Kitchen" started last night! Perfect summer reality show! I know, I know...Gordon Ramsay can be quite the jerk, but the man knows what he's doing. Hell's Kitchen won out since NCIS was a rerun. What was the deal with the guy with the Hell's Kitchen tat? I'm thinking he's really going to be ticked off when Gordon eventually tells him off. If you watch the show, you know it's just a matter of time. Does that guy not know? That tat is permanent.
Did anybody see "Real Housewives of New Jersey" Monday night? I fell asleep and missed the first 50 minutes. Caught the rerun last night, though. The last 10 minutes confirmed something I already knew: Danielle is loco. Not only that, but she is definitely an attention hogger.
Last thing: Karen over at Karen's Korner gave me an award! I'm so happy to be getting to know Karen through blogging...she's a special person! The award originated at Jeannie's Happy World.

There always seems to be something on TV these days. Of course, with a man at the controls, we don't always see shows in their entirety. Thankfully, he is a Bachelorette and GLEE fan, so I do get to some shows, haha.ReplyDelete
Nice job on the weightloss AND the gardening! :)
I loved your post, especially the rabbit part. NCIS man is my love. He is definitely eye candy. I have one of those measuring cups too and love it. Loved the brick planter too. Thank you for the sweet things you said about me too...I feel that same way about you! You are a dear friend!ReplyDelete
Hi Mary, your blog looks very refreshing for summer..I have seen that measuring cup in stores, but have never tried one.ReplyDelete
Good for you getting your plants and flowers ready for summer..I have a hard time getting anything to stay alive on my front porch, with the hot sun beaming on it most of the day.
Congrats on your award and weight loss..hugs, Baba
Aren't you clever! I never would have thought to do my own little randomness.ReplyDelete
I am so getting one of those measuring cups!
Lovely little planter there.Thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
Never seen a measuring cup like that before. The rabbit was cute. We get them around here once in awhile, not too often though, squirrels are much more popular.ReplyDelete
