Making desserts for tomorrow. My daughter, SIL and grandson are coming for diner and a last shot at the pool before it's closed for the season.

Today I made a pan of lemon squares/bars and a chocolate eclair dessert. (SIL loves lemon but DD hates fruit desserts but loves chocolate).

We just got home from shopping at the health food store. I got enough potatoes to make some of Andy's Ranch potato salad for a potluck/picnic on Monday. We also got enough ground pork to make some "Mock Armadillo" for tomorrow night and for the picnic.

Taking a little beer break from chores. 3 ceiling fans cleaned, 3 to go....I dislike that job, but the long handled Swiffer duster sure makes it easier....split pea soup is pretty much done, just simmering....got the big living room window washed and the patio door slider is next. Houseplants watered, and laundry done. Whew!

Didn't anyone tell you this is a holiday weekend? You are supposed to relax and enjoy the last weekend of the summer.

What is so important that it just can't wait until you stop the vehicle?

The young ones today aren't too bright.

I'm almost always relaxing. Except when there's chores to be done, then I just relax a little less often.

Boy does that chap my hide to see that. If they want to endanger their own lives, fine, just don't put innocent people at risk. Grrrr....

And these guys wonder why I get so stressed out when I know we have to be on that particular stretch of road.2 of them were watching videos while holding their cells in their hands!

I guess they (the girls) didn't get the memo of the 21 year old girl who was driving on that same road was driving iradical weaving in and out of traffic,cutting people off,speeding.She was 21.She wrecked her car.Killed her Mother who was a passenger.Wonder how she's going to like wearing an orange jumpsuit for a while.

I was so glad to just get home.

This should be mandatory before getting a driver's license.
