Today's my youngest sons 21st B-day.We are so going to mess with him. That's what he gets for growing up!

Firstly I didn't forget it this year.Wait till he sees his cake.Not for the faint of heart that's for sure.

We will never ever listen to his older brother or our adopted sons suggestions again.Let's just hope we survive it.

Went nuts at Trader Joe's yesterday.Need to get all those flowers arranged into vases.Clean house.Shove everything in the closet.
Birthday dinner made.It might be my last meal.

Happy birthday, Munky Jr.

Dawg, glad you're able to get outdoors and do some work without being bitten alive.

I'm taking a wine break from making room to put my Costco purchases from yesterday. I don't get down there very often, so I kind of went berserk. We took my daughter's SUV and man, was that thing packed.

What are you doing?

Cheryl and Munky, it's probably a good thing our Costco and TJ's aren't anywhere near us. We tend to go a bit nuts/berserk too. Have to take DH's jeep.

Enjoy your wine, Cheryl!

I would have gotten a lot more at TJ's, but that was the last stop and there just wasn't any more room. I already had barely enough room on the floorboard for my feet, and Tyler didn't want to ride up top on the luggage rack.

Yes, DH protested when I suggested we could do the same thing with him.

Our horrid gnat/mosquito season (which lasted most of the summer) seems to have abated, and it's cool today with a nice breeze so I could wear long pants and stomp through the overgrowth without getting too scratched up. Of course I'm covered in burr seeds and beggars lice (not bugs, a type of weed seed) and looking forward to a shower.
Help is on the way!!!

Beagle would love a goat! And I would have plenty for it to do!

Today I smoked a beef chuck roast for the first time. I smoked it in the Weber for 3 hours then finished it in the oven to an internal temp of 195F-200F. I rested it and just pulled and refrigerated it. As I was obligated as the chef to insure it's viability, I tasted it. Really good. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's dinner.

Could you have one Dawg? I'd dearly love to have a Pygmy goat! I can spend far too much fun time just watching them. Make Beagle happy!!

What are you doing?

Afraid we're not zoned for goats, Kay. And I sure couldn't keep it outside, too many coyotes and other predators (even though said predators are too lazy to help me with all the bunnies). It would have to be a house goat. They are adorable though!
