Hubby was up early contemplating whether or not to golf. Then he gave me a play by play as to what we were doing 4 years ago today at 9am. No doubt in my mind we were standing in line at the courthouse in Las Vegas to get our marriage license. Then we perused through several chapels to find the right one. We chose Wee Kirk 0' the Heather. Supposedly the oldest one in Vegas. It was the only chapel that wasn't too cheesy on the inside. The resolution of the pictures aren't the best, but you get the idea.

I have been dealing with guilt this evening. Fully intending (remember how I hate the word "INTEND"? It tends to get people in trouble.) to make my walk in the dreaded heat tonight while listening to my favorite tunes, a weird little storm blew up out of no where. My goal was to be at the dam by 8:15pm and be done by 9pm. I just figured a little later, maybe a little cooler, maybe a little more peaceful. I was looking forward to it. Thank goodness I didn't go any sooner. The sky turned black and a huge gust of wind whipped by my window. The heat had been almost unbearable as the air just wasn't moving. The weather reminds me of last year when the rain pelted all summer. I feel like I'm in the movie Groundhog Day or something. It's as if this is a continuation from last year. I wake up everyday and it rains. It's like a nightmare. Once I begin my walks across the dam in the summer, I feel guilty if I miss an evening.
So, since I'm missing my walk I'll tell you about a little recipe I found in a Mexican Recipe Book this weekend. I wish I had pictures but I don't. Didn't even think about taking any as I wasn't sure it would be as wonderful as it actually turned out. Mom told me tonight she really liked those vegetables I fixed the other night. Ironically I finished off the veggies today at lunch thinking they almost taste better today than the other evening. It made me crave more. I've been thinking about them since our conversation.
Anyhoo, I took a half a head of cauliflower, a stalk of broccoli, and 2 large carrots. I cut apart the cauliflower and broccoli and sliced the carrots into large thin pieces. Then I steamed them to make them perfect. In a saucepan I melted 2 tablespoons of butter, then added 1 small clove of garlic (chopped as tiny as I could get it) and a BIG squeeze of lime. Boiled these ingredients for less than a minute. Poured it over the veggies and YUUUUMMMMEEEE!! Next time I'm going to add zucchini or yellow squash. This was the first time I used fresh garlic. Now let me tell you I love garlic, but this was the bomb!!! The bomb I tell ya. It gave a wonderful flavor along with the fresh lime juice. If you like these kinds of things, trust me, you'll love this!!

Once I got into my car to head home, I took the long route just to listen to the radio. I find myself taking the longer routes lately since I have XM Radio for free (temporarily). Sincerely, I wish I could buy one for the house. It's need like a new hole the head.
After I got home I got to see the ending to John and Kate. Maybe I'm relishing in the fact that's what people get for making money off their children, but that's really not fair. Those kids didn't get to choose their parents. But dear Lord, please help Kate not be so ignorant. I have a feeling she'll be in the December issue of Playboy. Oh, the heat...
Our A/C quit working yesterday. The fixitman said there's a leak. An unlikely leak since the unit is so new. He didn't have time to work on it today, but thawed it out and recharged it. Not sure how this will be tomorrow. It better get fixed. I can stand the heat if I want, but if I don't want, oh, watch out...

This morning I'm cruising out of town in my car when I hear this weird dog bark. I swear he's in my backseat. My brain is rushing, remembering I had not passed any canines going 60 mph. Only a few seconds later, I swear I hear a car horn honk. It was almost as if it were MY car honking. Thinking I should dart on past Moberly and head to Mid Mo Mental Health, cause I just wasn't getting it....I got it. The radio was tuned to a 1990's station on XM Radio. I have this free for 3 months and have not played with it until now. Apparently this 1990 song that was playing had naughty words that were "barked" out and "honked" out as the naughty words were sung. It took me a mile or two to figure that one out. No kidding the sound was crystal clear coming through those speakers and I swear that bark sounded like it came from the back seat. And that honk, it was just incredibly weird. I had a good laugh on the way to work though. I guess you had to be there...

So after 20 minutes of chasing this little critter around the garage, hubby finally trapped him and turned him loose in the woods. He was just a baby and scared to death. Normally I cuss these little cuties for biting off the tops of my flowers, but today I ooed and awed with hubby. I wish we could've made him our friend. Who knows maybe he'll be back.

I'll try to get better pictures tomorrow. Today the two fellas finished what they needed to complete and I put things back together. We are simplifying somewhat and I feel the need to have a yard sale. Dreading even the thought of it, it still needs to happen. Hey, maybe that's how I can earn my crown molding!!

After having false hopes of him being Mr. Lovey Dovey upon our return, reality soon sat in. He acted like he didn't know us. It took him a few minutes to realize the peace and quiet would soon be over.
It was a long trip home, Kia got sick in the car. I felt so bad for her. She may have to take our next trip with us. She's better now and I think the vet was right. She thought we weren't coming back to get her. Remember, she was the one that was dumped in Moberly and starved along with her brothers. She must remember those terrible days.
