So has Mr. HC. Today I actually went out into the yard to kind of survey what has happened while I was down and out. Nothing good, that’s for certain.
I lost a few plants and my neighbors tree has a branch which has split and is all over our pool area where I am trying to grow cannas. Spring weeds are out of control again.
Got my work cut out for me this weekend for sure!
I actually have a number of “Favorite” houses that I see around here, but this one is in the top 5 for sure!
It was built in 1894 and is oner of the oldest homes around here. Phoenix has a relatively “new” history when compared to other parts of the country and Phoenicvians also have a bad habit of tearing thigs down instead of preserving. We are getting better though. Fortunately this beautiful painted lady was saved by the City back in the 1970’s.
I see stuff like this all the time. I always wonder “why” is there a lone shoe in the street/freeway/wherever? What is the story here?
Lost because I have no idea how you get your shoes back. They are truly lost!!! I see this all over the place, more so in some neighborhoods than others.
As a Mom this pisses me off . . . shoes are expensive!!!
The Easter Candy Aisle kills me . . .
I could loose my mind on Easter Candy!
I had to think really hard about this one because I really like vegetables. I would be hard pressed to think of one that I absolutely won’t eat.
I think though that maybe Mr. Potato wins just slightly over the rest. I do love potatoes!!!
Cactus – which we have plenty of. This one has a hole in it where a bird has most likely nested
In your Grocery store aisle!!!
Standing in my front doorway . . . this is what you would see.
The waterfall feature (or the bottom of it anyway) in the Koi Pond that Mr. HC built for yours truly!!!
This was a fairly quick read.
OVERVIEW: Mobbed-up Brooklyn chef Benny Lacoco prepares the dinner of a lifetime, knowing that someone stands to get whacked when the last course is served. The rat who set up the reigning capo for 10 to 20 is one of the made men at the table, but Benny realizes suspicion could fall anywhere: “I’ll be cooking all night and my reward could be a piece of lead in the head.” Benny ruminates on how he fell into his life of crime, acting as a food fence to move stolen stock out to select restaurants, “transfusing” inferior olive oil or wine into higher-ticket containers. The mix of haute cuisine and Mafiosi is a natural—obviously Julia Child and Tony Soprano both like to eat, right? And how often do you see a mobster getting disrespect for “revealing his limited knowledge of food and even more limited food choice experience”?
I think Mr HC and I are on the up side of this sickness that we had. He went back to work today (after almost 2 weeks). He is worn out tonight, but feels better than he has in a while. I have been so worried about him.
This is a set of knives that I have in my kitchen. I actually really like it. It is called “The Ex” and everyone who sees it tells me that “this is just plain wrong”
Mr. HC’s spare change bottle.
when it gets really full he lets me spend it!
My favorite toes in the world . . . Pug toes!!!
My very favorite zippers are the zippers on my leather motorcycle jacket
The closet book near me at the moment I am taking pictures is actually a stack of books. One stack of several which are TBR (to be read)
