Door to door

My neighborhood is a mecca for door-to-door sales people. A couple weekends ago, a guy selling high-speed internet showed up at my door and asked me if my parents were home. Say what?

That line is rivaled by last month's door-to-door guy who was selling front stoop cleaner (at 9:30 p.m.). He called Dave, "the king of the house." I was the queen, natch.

 This is where all the magic happens.

A haircut

This dog got a haircut. So did this one.

Rain pants

I received these in the mail today. Rain pants. Purple rain pants. They are the anti-jeggings.

Turns out, decent rain pants for women are not easy to come by. All the local stores only had men's sizes (of the XXL variety) and they ranged from $20 to $30.

If you need/want/deeply desire a pair, you can get some crazy cheap from Cabela's. I got mine online when they were $4.88. Now, they are $2.88! I kind of want to buy another pair just because the price is so low. Must curb compulsive bargain spending.

Waterproof, yes. Flattering...ha ha ha.

Bathed in a golden light

There is no doubt about it, this dog is loved. My netbook was displaced for this redonkulous cuddling.

My neighbors and I had a little cook-out this weekend. I brought this strawberry cheesecake trifle. It was a hit. If you make it, I promise it will be a hit, too.

Look how eager we are to dig in.

Sitting around

Just sitting around.

Deck railing

Now, the deck is really, really done. Railing is up and stair is attached.

Now, if only it would actually cool down and all mosquitoes would die, I could actually enjoy it.

 Here's Dave on the deck, along with a mysterious blob in the patio door.

Notice anything?
