I made him a fancy drink (AKA Hilary does a nice thing! OMG)

after I slipped out of my sneakers and apron and into some red pumps, and refreshed my lipstick of course...

We have some really excellent mint in our garden--I think it's spearmint. The girls helped me pick some mint, and we put it in the blender along with vodka, lemonade, sparkling water and sugar. After that was thoroughly blended, I threw a cup of fresh ice in there and just pulsed it for a sec to chop it a bit. I poured it in a glass and garnished with a lovely sprig of mint, and handed it to my sweetie when he came home from work.

(I had a sip and it was DIVINE. I must remember that for NEXT summer...)

I think he was pleasantly surprised at this. We proceeded to have a nice, relaxed evening working on our various projects while watching Curb Your Enthusiasm. Oh, Larry David. Always getting into trouble!

...

I read that a good way to deal with thistles is to cut them off and then paint the "open wound" with weed killah. That way it gets into the roots but it doesn't kill everything else. I'm going to do this... Tomorrow... Or maybe the next day...

I hope our neighbors aren't embarrassed about how unkempt our yard is. Don't worry neighbors, I'm going to "spruce up the place" with JUNK SCULPTURES! It'll look REAL nice next to the toys and the dirty, barefoot children.

I don't think your yard could look that junky ... I mean, it's not littered with those plastic, crappy, kid toys -- you know, the plastic slide, the plastic house, the plastic plastic thing.

I think, if you don't have 3 cars in the yard then you are doing good.
