It's Getting Hot & I'm Not Allowed To Complain

The TV weather guy claims by Sunday we'll see temperatures up to 90° (notice how I made that degree sign?) and the bad thing is Bill (justplainbill) says he doesn't want to hear me complain about warm weather so my lips are sealed. At least for today. LOL

I have accomplished very little today so far, other than making a bunch of business related phone calls, that I've been putting off.  I had 5 places I needed to call about this or that and I finally took the time to do it. Oh and I've done two loads of laundry. Oh and I vacuumed the whole house & scrubbed the floors in both bathrooms.

When it cools off a little, I'm going to go out & mow the front lawn.  The dandelions are getting tall again. The back yard is not too bad because I don't water it as much as the front lawn....no one sees it if it turns brown, except the Air Force pilots going over my house all day long. 

I've had quite a few comments & emails about my eBay business.  The links to my eBay site as well as my Avon site are on my sidebar.  Under the heading "Favorite Sites." I am going to be re-listing a lot of stuff in the next few days.

Our dear friend Sugar started a new thing today in her journal. And she welcomes anyone to join in. So I will do my part.

 

My contribution; Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

2 cups sliced strawberries, 2 cups bite size pieces rhubarb, mix in ¼ cup Minute Tapioca, 1 ¼ cup sugar (I have used Splenda~works great) Let mixture stand for 15 minutes then scoop out into a prepared pie crust (either your own or one from the store).  Dot with 1 tablespoon butter and put top crust into place, crimping edges. Cut some vent slits in the top, sprinkle granulated sugar over the top and bake in preheated 400° oven for 45-50 minutes.  Cool and enjoy with some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.   Yummy !!!

 

 So easy even some of the guys could do it. This recipe is on the back of the Minute Tapioca box too.  I think I hear a strawberry rhubarb pie calling my name. 

Until next time, have a wonderful Friday evening...Linda

Nope.  No complaining.  It was hard for me to keep my big mouth shut today, while outside and then taking dogs in and out of yards, not to mention playing and cleaning.  I was sweating so bad!  I agree with you.  Why can't we just have 75 everyday?
Well, there I go, again.  A back door complaint.  I take it back!  I take it back!  LOL!  Did we have a similar conversation LAST year???

Sounds like a busy day even though you said you accomplished little! It's easy to keep putting off phone calls but doesn't it make you feel good when you get rounbd and do them?! It's weird that you said 'it's so easy even some of the guys could do it'. Most of the top chefs are guys. Andy loves to cook too, puts me to shame as I hardly ever cook ~ my excuse is I don't care much for hot food. Give me salad any day!
