Buckle up buttercups - this is going to be a ping-pong kind of post where we jump from random topic to random topic...or, in other words, pretty much how every conversation (in real life) with me can sometimes go...
The high today was in the mid-80's. But The Husband was in the kitchen concocting a soup.
This is a topic that we have disagreed on for all the years we've been married. In my mind soups, stews, chilis, etc. are hearty dishes that are "cool weather" dishes. He disagrees and thinks that anything goes any time of the year - the weirdo.
My thoughts on seasonal foods extend into desserts. To me, I would group praline cake and any other "heavier" type of dessert into a "cool weather" dish. And a lemon pound cake or coconut cake - these are all "warm weather" desserts...much to Man Child's consternation - as the praline cake is one of his favorites and I am loathe to make it in the summer months. In his mind, any dessert is free from my seasonal no-no list - it's obvious he gets this insanity from his father, the weirdo.
MOST OF THE JUNIPER IS OUT! Granted, we've still got the hot mess going on up next to the house (I'll deal with that another day), but the main vermin and weed infested eyesore is GONE.

As of yesterday, the grass seed is spread and we are crossing our fingers and hoping that grass actually comes in. But, honestly, at this point of the game I'd rather look at dirt than at that damn juniper.
