Every July our town hosts a music festival - annoying in itself because the bands are crappy and we're close enough that the racket carries loud and clear, but this year they started early: tonight.
And the Grande Finale is... Sunday.
Seven freaking nights of trashy noise blown into our house until midnight.
Vegas said that this year we'll walk up there with the doggies one evening and hopefully they'll pee on a a piece of equipment or something.
Summer is kicking our asses this year, too. I kind of love it despite the 24/7 sticky sweat, the sleepless nights, heatstroke, the bugs and the fields-gone-crazy-with-eight-feet-tall-weeds. Because this year, I'll have had my fill of the heat and winter won't feel like such a nightmare.
OK maybe you don't, but try to imagine ;-)
Did you know that cooking your pancakes in vegetable oil instead of butter makes them crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside? Yes yes, it's awesome! Then you add a pat of butter on your stack and drench with real maple syrup and - oh god. Have a mega craving now. Dammit!
Don't watch The Food Network, it's evil.
Speaking of evil, there's a leftover home-made ice cream sandwich in the freezer.
It's totally mine.
