Weather weirdness and what I'm reading this week

It's Friday all!  *virtual high five*

It's been a hot, rainy week.  Does anyone else have meteorologists that can't seem to find their butts with both hands?  Our forecasts seem to change every four hours.  I swear I think they say 50% chance of rain just to cover their asses.  

But enough about our incompetent weathermen, let's get to...

Extremely Drunk Groom Attempts to Remove New Wife's Garter and It Does Not Go Well  (I hope she gave that a-hole the beat down of his life.  This is NOT the way to start out a marriage and while I know my Mr wouldn't have done this, it just proves we made the right choice not having alcohol at our wedding)

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) updates his condition   (As if I needed another reason to love that man anymore)

Airport staff take kid's lost stuffed animal on a cute adventure  (This kid will have this for the rest of his life.  A reminder there are still awesome, thoughtful people out there)

I'm going to get my black beans cooking today.  I've been hankering for some chili.  I know...chili in 90 degree heat but it is just so good, I cannot help myself!  I also want bean and cheese burritos and sweet corn, bean salad.  I must need either protein or fiber or both.

Do you have plans for the weekend?  What's your weather been like this week?

  1. The weather has been ridiculously crazy so far and I wouldn't want to be a weatherman because they have no ability whatsoever to predict anything when you have these strange patterns. Just gotta try to get out and do what you can and hope you don't get caught out in some bad stuff.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate your time! (Heads up though...disrespectful or spam comments will be deleted.)
