    • Hey, is today the day you get the ice cream from the butcher?

      Amazing how you and I are still having cold weather and primalcajun is already harvesting. Going to be too wet for tomatoes here this year, I think.

      It's good thinking of your somewhat stressful work week being over. Aren't weekends nice? Time to organize and move around freely. Have a super day!

          • Is that normal for this time of year? Wow. I think my ideal is anything under 75. 85 is okay but pushing it!

            Lamb burgers sound like fun!

              You cannibal!

              I'm with you on temps though. Especially if it's humid, which it tends to be around here.

              Actually, I think lamb burgers sound great too... with rosemary and garlic, served with Dijon... They didn't have ground lamb at my grocery store.

              • I season and cook them almost the same way I do lamb chops. Lemon juice, rosemary, olive oil, garlic, little sea salt and pepper, and some Sweet Pea Apple wine. Just a little bit of the wine. It's good stuff when it sits in the fridge for a few hours, but it's still good just freshly mixed.

                • It's sort of normal for this time of year. We were in a drought last year, so the heat was just about completely unbearable. Thankfully we have plenty of pools around here. I can't wait till our apartment ones open up! BBQ and pool time!

                    • So my "no weigh" april is over... no more excuses... Time to step on the scale... Dun dun DUN!!!

                      And the verdict... 275.0!!! Down from the 283.4 (which for my newer followers was a gain over 1 week from 282.4).

                      Big decision for me now is that because I loved having a no weigh (read: less stress) april I've gotta decide how I'll weigh myself for the future. I think I'm going to go with a 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month model. It seems fitting.

                      Happy Sunday everyone!
