Fairy Tales ~ Mowing ~ Crazy Cat ~ Shrimp/Pasta Salad

Good 43º clear sunny morning. Looks like it's going to be in the high 80º's today and then the 90º's for the rest of the week.

Got this from Gator.... good one!

Yesterday I mowed the back lawn (weeds and weird grasses)... that oddball cat of mine was sitting in the shade watching me. He's not afraid of the riding mower! Then since I stopped (taking his picture) he came towards me...


So I go to the front yard.... and he lays down right where I am going to mow...

I finish, stop the mower to put back Mr. Hippo and get the hose so I can water the cherry tree and he climbs up on the mower!


I had put Maggie and Dude in the house where it was cool and soon as I finished mowing, Dude wanted out...

I moved the trampoline and got that all mowed... then Ms. Deer comes along, gets comfy in the shade, and munches on the cut grass....

Took the trash can to the road and put up my new sign...


My neighbor was out bailing his cut grass....

Dinner last night... in the mood for salad... thawed out some shrimp, chopped tomatoes, mushrooms, cucumber, avocado...  cooked salad pasta, spinach, and canned baby corn.... Sauté shrimp, mushrooms, and baby corns ..... toss all together.

Seasoned with Weber Garlic, garlic powder, and chives. Dressing was mayonnaise, sesame oil, and lemon juice all whisked together. (yes, my lemon juice is in a wine bottle!)



All I know. Maggie gets a mani/pedi this morning. Nuff said. Ciao.
