The Weekend #3

It was a pretty good weekend. Being st. patty's day and all. i partied until my toe blistered.

so much for not drinking and losing weight. but one day of bad behavior (okay...two) is not that bad.

and sunday i got right back on the weight watcher ball and bought one of these:

I'll put those to good use, right away. right now they're keeping down the pad on my dad's rocking chair.

I also completed another grand puzzle. not this weekend; but, it is most certainly worth posting: :) (i almost went insane doing this one)

So after our shuffle board, pool & darts, Saturday night we went and had pizza. I told my friend in honor of my diet i would only have one piece. As i began reaching for my 3rd, she slammed her fork down in front of my hungry hand and that was that.

okay! two pieces was good enough for me...

My brother built me a garden gate to keep Kody out. Of course he's already jumped it once; but, i'm going to hope the smell of vegetables will keep him out in the future.

*warning* the following images are BEFORE pictures (minus the fence). i will post pictures of AFTER next weekend when all my gorgeous plants are in.

we used the old wood from the part of the gate i tore off to keep it consistent. i'll paint it and put on pretty shit so it looks nice. like flowers and such. love the gate, don't you?

kody loves the plants...he's eagerly awaiting for the time AFTER i lovingly and patiently put them all gently in to the ground so he can rip through them like a tornado.

Glad St Paddys was enjoyable! Life is too short to be goal oriented every waking moment!

Watch your mint.... I had a beautiful mint plant which is basically a weed and little by little it started to die. I couldn't figure out what was wrong until Jerry Lee (my furry son) came over and gave me a very minty kiss.....

At least the puzzle didn't consist of two-thirds repetitive blue sky. That's the type of puzzle that would land one in a straightjacket.

Those puzzles frustrate me instead of relaxing me. More power to you!

Great fence...let's hope it keeps Kody out. Even if it doesn't, it sure looks nice!

I love your gate, can't wait to see pictures of your new garden all planted.

Congrats on the 10 lbs and your new positive attitude. Hope that works for you, if it does send some extra my way, I gained 3 pounds over the weekend :(

Go Kody! I love the little nosy pup. OK, i shouldn't root him on but he's such a cutie... not a "b*tard* sorry, TK. We must agree to disagree. Dogs are allowed to do what they want when they want in my dreamworld. OK? OK.

The coming-up-garden and gate/fence are quite lovely.

I dig puzzles, TK, that is a great one you did! I wish you lived near me, we could do them together!!

Nice garden gate, yes, bad kody if he rips up the herbs. Our new (well, almosty 6 months) Lucy dog is a digger and I see she would love to reak havoc in my garden area.

The pics of your trip to alcatraz are fun, thanks for sharing. Kathy's half socks.... I've never seen such a thing also. I'm probably a fashion faux pas also, but I'd prefer my bright orange crocs with just about ANY outfit. However I did just buy a pair of heels to go with my new "Friday" jeans for work (they are also pretty fun for a Friday night).
