A Little of This and A Little of That.

I feel dissatisfied today. I think I know why; I spent some time with Cynthia because she wanted me to help her set up a blog but she became super frustrated with the slowness of it all so we didn't get very far. Plus, we did it at my bookstore and every five minutes someone came up to talk to me so I could not focus. Eventually we will get it done.

It has been horribly hot here the last week or so and I didn't want to turn on the oven so for dinner I steamed some scallops, made a fresh cole slaw, pasta salad and garlic bread. it was tasty, light and cool. Good job, Beej!

Y'all have heard about my lizards. I wanted to share this with you. It's a video of a bearded dragon, which is what I have, (this is a juvenile; both of mine are much much bigger.) but I wanted to convey how absolutely adorable they are:


  1. I wish it was hot here long enough for me to bitch about it.

    No way would I have lizards, don't have time for things like that and don't want to be responsible for natures critters. Might consider big ones though, some of them are tasty eating.

  2. My lizards are probably 20 inches long. They are great pets.

    Billy, when it gets in the 100s, it is way too hot.

  3. I don't envy you that heat. I like hot weather but not that hot! Your dinner sounds divine though darling. :)
    Cute Lizard video. :P
    Let us know when Cynthia has her blog up. I'd love to say hi!


  4. Cynthia made some progress on her blog last night but I can't find it yet. As soon as I do, I'll add it to my blog list and add mine to hers.

    I'm really enjoying this cookbook, Laura. And hugs back to you, my friend. xoxo

  5. If it ever gets to a hundred here it will be 130 where you live.

  6. I love lizards....they're so fun. I miss mine- she died a while ago from super old age.
    I'm ready for the heat to be makes me wish for Michigan even more.

  7. Hey I dont know what you think is so cute about lizards.. I shiver with the thought of one in my house hold.. I cant even have the thought of snakes in the house... sorry but anything with reptiles and such I dont get along with.. but reading about them is ok..

  8. I just like reptiles, tweetey. I don't know why. And I especially like lizards. I like their little hands with their five fingers. I like how they turn their heads when they look at you. I even like how they shed their skin. I've liked them since I was a real little kid. I can remember being a toddler and getting all excited when I'd find a baby snake. Weird, I know..

  9. Do your lizards bite or are they tame enough to hold without being afraid of them? I know most animals sense when someone is afraid of them..

  10. Oh no, these guys are love bugs! Check out my latest post, honey. I worte it in hopes that it'll answer some questions.


Go ahead, you can do it! Just whistle if you want me. You know how to whistle, don't you? You just put your lips together and BLOW....
