Random rattlings

I have been living in my head more for the past couple of weeks. That is not to say that there was anything particularly interesting rattling around in there. I am trying to get out!

Summertime seems hard to settle into any kind of routine, since there really isn't one when the schedule varies week to week with travel, camps, and oppressive weather. That carefree lack of planning is probably super swell...for carefree people. Today I thought about some of the long standing items on my to-do list, and wondered if tomorrow I should replace them with things like:

1. Test that mocha chip muffin on the counter again to decide if it is worth saving.

2. Wear the ill fitting shorts from last week for an entire day to see if eating habits improve at all. (Of course this is in direct conflict with item #1, so luckily there are seven days in a week.)

3. Continue to plod through stack of unread books so that I can justify buying myself something new. (Seriously, the last two trips to Barnes and Noble with nothing for me teetered on depression inducing.)

4. Make up ridiculous things to put on to do list to make self look productive.

We went to an outlet mall today. Remember when outlet used to mean super huge bargains? No thank-you Old Navy for your $30.00 dress. Can't you get some discreet blob of ink on yourself, so I can have you for like $10.00?

These are the tallest tomato plants I have ever seen... 

A little reminder that salsa day will be here before I know it. I bet there is a chance that there are things I could do to make myself better prepared. The smarter money is on the chance that I will do no such thing.

What on earth am I talking about? Great, you don't know either? Well, I guess sometimes you just need a Little Sumpin' Sumpin'...

Stop by and visit Stacy for some more random action...

...and maybe when you come back here I will have formed a complete thought!


  1. A little sumpin' sumpin' would do me the world of good this week :)

  2. Can I order a keg of 'sumpin' sumpin'? No? Dang.

    I found out that Hershey makes cinnamon chips! Do you know how good those will taste in oatmeal cookies? I am salivating at the thought. That's what I get for surfing the web.

    My tomato plants all died. :(

  3. Let me know what salsa day comes! I would like to place an order

    1. Hey Chicken Little, I am not sure it is that simple! :)

    2. You're probably right, I'm really envious of your ability to do all the things you do. I wouldn't even know where to start.

    3. You just need the recipe, dear!

  4. I'm not a fan of summer's lack of routine either. I have all this time on my hands, but with no structure, I completely waste every minute of it.

  5. I feel remiss that I didn't mention that my tomato plants are most definitely not worthy of your wonderment. The garden at my parents house used to feature tomato plants so bountiful and large that my dad custom fashioned some sort of trellis like cages. You could literally walk under them and pick tomatoes from overhead.

    1. Whaaaaat? Do you have photographic evidence? While I remain impressed, I now expect grander things next year!
