Potluck Monday



Ah Potluck! I took a weight lifting class at the gym Friday and I am so sore it still hurts to type, so this is going to be short this week







Havoc has been spending his allowance on Pokemon cards lately. That was/is the popular thing in the primary schools around here for the last couple months of school. He has a stack of them & trades them with friends & explains every single card to me and how you can battle with them. Silly Bandz haven’t hit here yet. You can buy them but they are have not reached ‘must have’ status




Dinner is still not inspiring me but I made some chocolate cocoa cookies earlier in the week after a big rainstorm. It had cooled enough to use the oven.





The word jar gave me lugubrious, which means mournful, dismal, or gloomy, especially to an exaggerated or ludicrous degree.

Probably I can work that into a sentence. I know a couple people that it could apply to in certain circumstances





The pool water is green again. Between the rain & the heat I just can’t keep up with the algae. There are only so many chemicals I can safely dump in it & still let the boys swim. I’m changing filters every 3-4 days. I want a pool boy, just to look after the pool. I don’t even care about him bringing me frozen drinks.


Thanks Holly for hosting potluck

Never heard of Silly Bandz before, but my wife has some animal-shaped elastics (they look like the ones I found when googling, only too small to fit on a wrist) that a friend brought back from Japan a few years back. Maybe they're part of the alpha project?

I need of a pool boy too (for my tiny above ground pool), but I would require drinks.

Thanks for potluckin'

The rain here is TERRIBLE too! I mean, I know I talked about the tornadoes, but the rain is just awful. PRETTY sick of it, yo.

Yep, it's silly bandz here ... it's so ridiculous - everyone trading and borrowing, etc. I bought my daughter one package and I refuse to buy anymore. $2.99 for 12 stupid colored rubber bands? However, my daughter must be a genius at marketing because she's managed to turn those 12 bandz into at least a hundred of them.

Maybe your pool boy could massage away some of the exercise-induced aching, too? xx

Hope you are able to move a bit better. :) I would like a pool boy also - does it matter if I own a pool? ;)
