CB and I have had the best day in AGES.
This has been the worst winter. BLEAUGH. I guess I dont have to tell you guys, you uh, know.. everyone knows.
But this morning we got up early and took a drive out the the bakery for toast and coffee. The air was mild, and there was hardly any wind. It was warm enough that I took my jacket off. So nice.
We had breakfast at the cafe and shot the shit with Bonnie and Pauline for a while. Then we bought groceries– my fav. I bought beer and lemonade for shandy’s. And cashews and apricots and hummus and meat.. because I have totally chubbed out this winter and it’s time for healthiness times before my blood pressure explodes my fat little heart.
Usually my snacks would be a couple of chocolate bars and a bag of chips. This is much healthier.
AND WE BOUGHT A MOTHER FUCKING BAR-B-QUEEEEEEEEE! Jealous, MAH FUKAHZZZ? Yeah I thought so.
Bet you’re not jealous of the hour it took to assemble and the bomb of plastic and cardboard that subsequently blew up all over out kitchen:
Unlike building anything from IKEA, this one will actually make us dinner afterwards.
Ponk chomps. I got over excited and we cooked ALL the pork chops.
Pork chops and Terminator 2 in the sunshine with a beer & lemonade shandy. How nice is that!
Terminator 2 is totally awesome. I had never really seen it. Arnie, you’re tops!
Look at all the snow melting and turning our road into a river!! EXCITING!
Fifteen degrees! You know what that means.. motorcycle weather..
Here she is. The great gold and black beast. It’s slightly less “together-y” now. A few days ago I came home to find a smoking gas tank on the front step.. the oven on low and smelling of gas.. the shower disconnected in the bathroom but the tub SUSPICIOUSLY shiny clean and BB’s from our BB gun EVERYWHERE. And most mysteriously, the dryer door open with a blanket, the cushions from the couch and a garbage bag hanging out of it…….
CB might need a real life shop to do this shit in man.. It took me ages to figure out what happened. I wont go into details, but it involved the gas tank being in the oven, tub and dryer at some point– the real point is though, that whatever foolery he engaged in to get there, it worked. And saved him from spending $400 for a new gas tank! Yay!
So yeah.. breakfast, coffee & lemon squares, chili and toast for lunch, grocery shopping, motorcycle playings– OH AND I SAW AN EAGLE! It was fighting a couple of crows and flew right over the car while I was driving, so COOL, eagles are amazing– sunshine! And barbaeque dinner! And beer! AND I HAVE A LITTLE ICE CREAM MAKER COMING IN THE MAIL!
And I found my hat.
What a great fucking day! Thanks universe, for not totally sucking today. You rock sometimes.
