Surprise surprise surprise!

Don’t you love a good surprise?
Wait, what about a funny one?
The Coach was in Vegas last week for work stuff; he came home late Friday night.
You know how they say “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”? 
Well, not so much. The Coach brought home a cold virus and a polka dotted thong in his suitcase.
He pulled the undies out of the outside zipper pocket and said: 
“Are these yours?”
Me laughing: “Noooooooo”
Coach: “Well, they’re not mine”

The thought of him wearing size XS polka dotted undies made me laugh again.
It only took a minute to realize that one of the girls had used that suitcase over the summer.
Thank goodness I’m not one of those paranoid, overreacting, jealous women. You know, that right there could make a girl end up on that show Snapped. 
On Sunday I weeded the garden and fed my plants some yummy compost and I found several surprises!
 None of which were the photobombing cat.
I can hardly wait to make some eggplant parm!

When I titled this post, I immediately thought of my favorite goofy guy from back in the day. Who is old enough to remember sweet, gullible Gomer Pyle?

I hope you all had a nice weekend; minus any illnesses or misplaced underthingys. 

Willy Nilly Five~~ Say what now?

Joining Tanya and friends to share 5 willy nilly thoughts, pics or whatevers. 
The craft (laundry-office-overflow guest) room got painted last weekend.
Our friends PJ and Heather were here from Jupiter, PJ is a professional and he offered to ‘help’ me paint.
In reality, I was ‘in his way’ so he painted it all and I did just the the cubby under the desk.
Is it too white? perhaps. 
But, I’m not upset with my choice….hey, in 10 years PJ I can repaint it!
I love the fact that it’s fresh and clean because I have a thing for fresh and clean. 
Recently, I was shopping online ( for some mascara and one of the criteria choices was gluten free.   
I made a batch of kale chips this week. I sprinkled the kale bits with garlic & chili powder; lightly mixed in some olive oil and lime juice and baked them for about 10 minutes. 
Delish. The leftovers were thrown on top of a salad for a bit of crunch. 
Did I ever tell you I love geraniums?

Hey, I love geraniums. 

 Do you love avocados as much as I do?
I love them so much I want to marry them; but I’m not a bigamist. Or a weirdo.
I’m starting my own avocado farm and I can’t wait to enjoy my first harvest. I’m thinking I’ll wait on gathering the other ingredients for my first homemade guacamole for a few weeks though. 
Wishing you all a lovely weekend with fresh and clean surroundings, lovely colors (or white) and yummy  food.
