The last weekend in August that was

No, for real...how is it the end of August already? This summer flew by like greased lightening.
While I like all the seasons, I hate heat and humidity. 
Fall is really my jam. I'm looking forward to it. 

Friday night sky

Errandpalooza on Friday: 
Pets Plus for dog food; Franklin Mills to pick something up and stare at the mall goers in slack jawed awe, hoo boy there were some sights there; Redner's for groceries; Wawa for gas. 
I love the smell of Wawa.

I picked chicken off of the rotisserie chicken I had in the fridge and threw the carcass in the crock to make chicken stock. Never throw your chicken bones out. Make stock and freeze it! 
It's so much better tasting than canned, it's not processed and you control what's in it.

Finally! I made Pioneer Woman's perfect iced coffee. Glory be. If you like iced coffee, this is a must. And after I figured out how to manage the sieve part, it was so easy.

The coffee pre-water; the coffee after soaking overnight - looks like a bad toilet situation, no? forget I said that. put it out of your mind.; through the sieve; slow going; I finally figured out a way to free up my hands; end product

Roadhouse. I feel like we're always watching this.
I really love Sam Elliott. And Swazye's mullet.

Even though I rocked out on the errands on Friday, I forgot one crucial item. Balls.  
I had to go back out on Saturday morning. I hate being inefficient.

+

Homemade counter spray that's safe to use on granite. I like it.


+

Saturday afternoon work party, complete with a whole roasted pig. 

+

Surprise 40th for Jamie, and a birthday song for Effing Warren, who turned 40 at midnight.


+

A random act of kindness from Linda M.


+

My hangover persuaded me to loll around in bed reading for most of the morning on Sunday.
Which is never a bad way to spend a Sunday morning. 

+

A lovely afternoon at the pool with Laura, Chris and the boys. 
They brought me DD iced coffee and Brother's Pizza. Perfection.


+

One of my best friends had to put her faithful dog companion to rest this weekend. He was a great dog, and they had a truly wonderful life together. I've known him for 15 years, longer than I've known a lot of people. My heart hurts so badly for her. Rest in peace Spanks. 

+

It's ok, but I prefer the zucchini pie I make on the regular, recipe courtesy of my friend Amanda. 
It does call for green onions, which I tend to add to pretty much everything anyway.
I love them. We are one.


+

Tomato sandwiches eaten at dusk are a perfect waning summer meal. 


+

Favorite things: super sharp cheddar with jalapenos


+

Magazines and relaxing with MFD and my dogs. Exhale.

This is not the last weekend of summer according to the calendar, but most of us mark it as such. Enjoy it!
