it's still june. and it still looks like this.
a few hours later.
another few hours later.
and southeast of us looked like this.
then later in the day in the backyard.
and north east.
it rained crazily for a few minutes, drizzled for a few minutes, rained normally for a few minutes, more drizzle.....rinse and repeat.
out back again.
but the rain, drizzle, heavy rain took many breaks and at each break we jumped on the opportunity to jump into the hottub. plus we did a pile of jobs around the house.
but check out this beautiful white and purple tulip....with a beautiful blue dark centre. so gorgeous even on a gray, drizzly, rainy day....you can find beauty anywhere...you just have to look for it.
now kids - pay serious attention - this is a serious warning! DO NOT - i repeat -DO NOT put a gorgeously-prepared shepherd's pie in the oven and then start watching a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers documentary on netflix. i repeat - DO NOT! or else you will end up with this:
i didn't get the lid off at the right time so that the gravy below could cook off. then when i realized that i hadn't taken the lid off, i took the lid off, put the oven on broil and we went back to the Tom Petty documentary. and were entranced until one of us remembered, or smelled, the shepherd's pie.
it looks pretty bad....but was actually quite delicious. it was just a little embarrassing for me, personally, because i DO make the best shepherd's pie known to man. and it never looks like that.
in other news...jambaloney has been working on his contract and we have had a pretty good day so far. we didn't do spa day yesterday - too gloomy - so we cleaned the computer room instead. tomorrow, because it is supposed to rain all day, we are tackling the hallways and the bathroom. our lives are so exciting that maybe we should have our own reality show, no? bahahahahahahah!
a little bad news - i made my appointment with the denturist and he is booked until july 6!!!!! las time we booked an appointment with him we were able to see him right away. so we figured it would be the same for when my mouth had healed. the secretary has me written down for any cancellations for between now and then - but we need at least a day's notice as it is an hour and a half drive. cee-rap! we have the fourchu reunion on the 27th of july - i MUST have teeth by then. but apparently my denturist wants to do several moulds in order to make me the best dentures ever.
i guess i am wearing a surgical mask to the reunion and explaining to everyone that i have the zika virus and i don't want anyone to catch it. but that will just probably clear the hall in seconds. anybody have any spare dentures that you can send and i can shove in my mouth like Francis Dolarhyde from Red Dragon?!?!?!?!? if so, please send them. i'll find a way to make it work - i always do - bahahahahah!
jambaloney is working on his contract and i am writing this post. hopefully some of you have some new posts up to keep me entertained. sending love.
I think that pie looks delicious! Wouldn't worry what I looked like at the reunion, but would be disappointed I couldn't eat all that good food. Getting ready to put up a new post soon.ReplyDelete
DFW - thanks for saying that that horrible pie looks delicious - it was delicious - but some terrible looking! i CANNOT go to the reunion with no teeth i would be waaay too embarrassed! i will go and check your new post right away! xxoxoDelete
Geez.... cleaning the computer room instead of a spa day? That's doesn't sound fun. Hope you can pamper yourselves soon. Spa day sounded great!ReplyDelete
ya, i know eh? but it was a good thing to get the computer room cleaned. spa day will be coming soon. we do small spa-type things daily...but i want a full on spa day! and that includes suntanning for a good portion of it. only prob is you need sun to do that! xoxoxDelete
The pie does look good, I agree!ReplyDelete
We are having flash floods here in the UK then lovely sun in between, but every time I get to go outside it pisses down with rain!
oh Joey - what have they been feeding you if you think that pie looks good - bahahahah! i have seen the flash floods you guys are having - it's crazy! xoxoxDelete
Good dentures are worth the wait, I'm told. Bummer about the reunion, though.ReplyDelete
Gorges - right on the money as usual. my denturist told me that people don't wait long enough for dentures and then keep having problems with them. and a lot of my friends with dentures said they wished they'd waited. so i was willing to wait. but i NEEEEEED those dentures for the reunion and now can't be sure i'll get them in time - arghghghgh! xoxoxDelete
Came over from the Rat...For June a few days ago we had some super hot temp.ReplyDelete
It been ages since I had Shepard pie....Coffee is on
peppylady - welcome and come back anytime. oh and if i ever made you shepherd's pie - i promise it wouldn't look like the one pictured above. thanks for the coffee...i'll give it to jambaloney and take some lemon water. thank you.Delete

I always tell my kids it isn't burnt but heavily caramelized for flavor!ReplyDelete
I think you should get a set of those novelty Dracula teeth and wear them to the reunion.
Ed - good call on the "carmelization" story - bahahah! and i just may get those dracula teeth - everyone in Fourchu is crazy for halloween and they would get a hoot out of it! bahahahah! xoxoxDelete
Well, don't feel bad. I went to have some dental work done recently. The dentist said he wouldn't do it unless my doctor signed this paper saying I was well enough for the work. My doctor wouldn't sign it because he said I wasn't. I told both of them that was ridiculous and now I am looking for a dentist who doesn't know me!ReplyDelete
Don't you hate being at the mercy of some doctor/dentist/ etc.
I was going to say you two should still take your tub sessions out in your spa bad weather or no. Then I thought, what if lightening hit them, and they were found dead swirling around in the tub naked! No, better just do what you did and go inside!
oh Harry - crap - that situation sucks! but yes, you are going to have to go and find a dentist that doesn't know you and doesn't know where to get your records!Delete
and even though spa day was cancelled - we still get in the hottub. if it is just drizzly rain - we get in and let it rain on us - it's quite nice. if it is raining hard and we really want to get in - we bring our umbrellas - bahahah - we're pretty loony! nothing more fun though then being in the hottub on a cool winter's night with just a light snow falling - that's the best! xoxoxo
Everything looks nice and green up there, we've been getting afternoon thunderstorms but the yard and garden really enjoy them. Rock doesn't, at all.ReplyDelete
My dental trip recently was all good news. After years of crap and a lot of money it seems my teeth are finally doing well. I hope your upcoming trip goes smooth.
thanks Max - we love the green! poor little Rock - he's like our cats - hates the rain. i am super happy to hear about after all that you have been through with your teeth that they are finally doing well. congrats! xoxoxoxDelete
