Oh Monday

Blah, I can’t believe it is Monday again already.  Did anyone else look at their calendar this morning and go “holy crap it’s almost April!”?  Because I sure did.  I hope it doesn’t seem like the summer months fly by as fast as these past few.  Anyway I spent another good three hours in my backyard yesterday, and rigged this up for Pumpkin so she could come out without me worrying about her escaping under the fence.

She was not a fan.  Then she figured out if she pulled hard enough the safety release on her collar would snap and she was free.  So back inside she went.  I tried.  Why is it that after a long day in the sun a cold beer sounds like the most refreshing beverage in the world?  I gave into the temptation and drank this icy brew like it was water, which I suppose can be argued that it mostly is.

It was probably the most delicious Bud Light that I have ever tasted.  I was scorched after two consecutive days in the sun.

For the life of me last night I could not decide what I wanted for dinner.  I looked at all the takeout menus for places around me, the Red Robin menu, nothing was really winning me over.  Finally I got off my butt and drove to the grocery store to check out their prepared foods section.  The second I saw them sitting in the case, I knew it was what I wanted.  Crab Cakes!  After a long summery feeling day in the sun, they would be the perfect ending.

Crab cakes, asparagus seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, and french fries.  I was going to make my own french fries, but when I looked in the bag of potatoes all of them were growing very funky roots so I just bought a bag of classic Or Ida Fries and sprinkled them with seasoned salt.

I ate about one and a half crab cakes and all the asparagus and fries.  They were so good and you could really see and taste the crab meat as opposed to just breading.  After dinner, there was a lot of watching Pumpkin do this.  Which is so amusing and I tend to spend a lot of time watching.

There’s cat nip in the little ball that hangs on the end, the whole thing is suctioned to that cabinet.

And then this happened.  I watched for a while to see if she could figure out what to do, but eventually she just looked at me and started meowing so I had to help her out haha.

All in all it was a pretty relaxing Sunday, and weekend in general which is exactly how I like it sometimes.  I watched Kendra last night, Hank is such a cute husband.  She’s really struggling with her body image lately and he’s just so cute and loving, it’s adorable, and baby Hank is sooo cute.  That stupid show after about those idiot 3 girls though makes me want to strangle someone.  I can’t handle it.

Well Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a great weekend!
