We'll need to see a photo if you subject Beagle to that ordeal.

Why is it I think "I didn't do anything today" in spite of doing three loads of laundry, change the sheets on the bed, and make dinner.

I need to re-learn my concept of "do nothing".

Got our new and improved Groucho glasses today. Nice big moustache and great bushy eyebrows. Substantial glasses that should fit over DH's regular glasses. Probably not worth the price I paid, but much better than the previous ones I'd ordered.

Must sacrifice for true beauty.

This is a Very Bad Thing. DH's former workwife gifted us with 3 lbs of extremely hot jalapenos. I candied a bunch of slices in syrup, and instead of canning them, I thought, why not dehydrate them? The issue is, they taste so good, it's hard to not eat them. But they're so stinkin' hot my mouth's on fire. Then I have to have another slice.

I have two trays of them. DH doesn't want to subject his colleagues at work to them, so I guess they're all mine.

They certainly look lethal from over here. Might save some for Halloween treats...

Hm. Good idea! Grandpa would hand out bags of garlic cloves and Limburger cheese on Halloween. This might beat his idea!

Heh. I made salsa with said jalapenos and some canned tomatoes. DH proclaimed it "inedible". I snuck it into the chicken taquitos. He didn't notice.

I would say you have now earned the right for some time to really do "Nothing!."

For you do nothing is sitting back in your favorite chair with a tall glass of ice tea listening to your favorite baseball club winning their game. DH is out of your way in the garage long enough for you to listen to the whole game without interruption. Or he can be quietly sitting next to you willing to wait on you hand and foot until the game is over.

We have a resident in the building that is a rabid Red Sox fan. It is the only subject she knows how to talk about. As you know, they won their place in the play offs. At the end, she got so excited she swung out with a closed fist and punched her company hard on her upper arm. Her friend now has a nice deep purple black and blue mark on her upper arm. To make up for it, she sent her a five pound box of her favorite chocolates.
