Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Pretend Summer and Sisterhood

Yesterday was sunny. Cold, bitterly so, but sunny, and there's no snow here. So I pretended it was Summer. It went like this:
  • Blasted the heat in my car and enjoyed the rays coming in from my open sunroof. Never mind the icicles sticking out of my head when I got home.
  • Took Monsoon and Sprinkles to the park, wearing enough winter layers to make us sweat like it was 90 degrees.
  • Put on my swimsuit...and cried for two hours.
  • Made a "tropical fruit bowl" for dessert: Strawberry, pineapple and coconut ice cream. Of course there's fruit in there. Somewhere.
  • Had a picnic for lunch on the carpet. Okay, we didn't do this because Sprinkles can't eat people food and Monsoon can't help but drop crumbs (read: throw bits at her and say, "there you go!"). Also, she has pooped on the carpet and I'm not a fan of poop.
  • Settled onto the couch with a cool smoothie. Sure, it was a margarita - but it was frozen and has lime. Lime is fruit.

I'm sure there's more we could have done, but it's Summer. And I'm on vacation.


Also, I received this wonderful piece of bling from Veggie Mom. The Sisterhood Award, created by Diana Rambles, goes to blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude! I'm supposed to send this on to ten more Sisters who demonstrate these traits. Here's the thing: I think anyone who has been here and commented is well-deserving of this beautiful bling. So I'm changing it up a bit. Anyone who visits and comments on this post today may consider herself awarded! Yay to all of you! And don't forget to visit Veggie Mom, who was so friendly to pass this along to me.

Oh, yes. One can never have enough "fruit" at times like these. ;)

And you said poop.

Oh I love fruit, seriously I do. LOL

I love "put on my swimsuit and cried for two hours" and I'd love to hang on the couch, but I"ll take my 'rita on the rocks, with salt por favor!

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. Will you clean my computer too? xo

More fruit for sure! I'd like a smoothie for lunch!

Debbi said...

Mmm. fruit. yum yum.

I have carpet picnics all the time-- there's got to be a whole meal smushed into the carpets in my house here!

Sass said...

That was great!

I love to pretend it's summer, even when I'm stuck in freezing cold central Illinois. yuck.

I like your idea of the tropical fruit bowl. Sounds yummy. We had a day like that yesterday too, sunny but cool. A "fool-ya" day.

And sorry about the poop and the carpet. I'll add that to my list of reasons I prefer hard wood floors.

Wow, you must really wish it was summer! LOL Sounds like a fun day though!

Congrats on your award! Woohoo! =D
