Ruminations From A Sunday In The Garden

I had a great weekend.  Productive.  Lovely.  Sunny.

No complaints.  I did some fun things and ate some delicious things and gardened until I was ready to pass out.

Geeze Louise do I love me some summer!

While I was watering the garden yesterday though, I started thinking.  Ruminating.  The kind of think sesh where your mind just sort of tinkers about from one random topic to the next.

Later in the evening, I had a bit of an inside giggle at how random my thoughts were.  And thought it might be fun to put a few down for posterity and amusement sake.

So here we go kids, a variety show of thoughts that popped in my head during a long water the garden session on a Sunny Sunday {alliteration absolutely intended}...

* I've never seen a superhero movie.  How is that possible?  But I don't think I have actually seen a single superhero movie.  Can I even list super hero movies?  Wonder Woman is out now or was just out or I don't know but everyone is talking about it and some people loved it and some people thought Wonder Woman didn't use her brain enough.  Her outfit is cute.  I hate myself a little for thinking that.  But I also think her outfit is kind of dumb.  Or wait...maybe it's just the headband that I think is cute.  Because no one wears a skirt that short or a strapless top to do cardio.  That's what she does, right?  Runs and jumps and saves people, I assume.  Do I even understand superhero movies?  Is there a villain in every movie?  And oh yeah, it was a big deal because ass hats still think that a woman just can't possibly be a movie lead and have a movie make money and if a single movie with a female lead does poorly it sets effing progress back a zillion effing years.  Maybe I should see that movie.  I probably won't though.  I never see movies.  Wait...Chris O'Donnell was Robin from Bat Man.  Was George Clooney maybe Bat Man?  I feel like I saw that because I was so in love with Chris O'Donnell.  If only every movie could be as good as Scent of Woman {filmed here in my beloved Troy}!  So maybe I've seen one super hero movie.  20 years ago.  Which is fine.  Harry Potter should count as a superhero movie.  I've seen all eight of those a dozen times over.

* I'm not convinced this spray sunscreen is as good as the regular rub in kind.  I like the convenience but what has my life come to that rubbing lotion on my shoulders seems inconvenient?  I should go back to using normal sunscreen.  I live in fear of skin cancer and dementia!  I think I get the spray crap in my hair when I spray my back.  First worldiest of first world problems right here.  I should lodge a complaint.

* I should have made a hair appointment before my trip in a few days.  Damnit. I also should have done more yoga and a crunch or 1200.  Damn damn.  Why are all of the size 12 shorts that I just bought so big I can slip them on and off without unbuttoning them but the size 10 shorts looked like sausage casing?  I need to let go of the number.  I need to embrace my body or whatever all those Instagram quotes tell me.  But seriously...fu%k me for not working out!

* My right arm is tired.  Oh no...using my left arm feels weird.  {continues to hold the hose with right hand}

* I can't believe my new glasses won't be ready until after my trip.  I hate these glasses.  Or not the style but I can't see.  Maybe an eyeglass miracle will happen and the new frames will arrive before I leave.  Please please please universe let me get a call tomorrow!

* Was that guy hitting on me?  I hope not.  He's nice but I'm not interested.  I can't tell people this though because they always tell me to "give people a chance" when what they really mean is, this might be your last hope of getting off Unmarried Old Maid Island.  And I'd rather be rocking out on the Lanai with my Golden Girl posse than settle.  Plus...he probably wasn't even hitting on me.

* I'm definitely using my new bag on my trip.  I wonder if people will even notice the pockets are boobs?  {Giggles}. Best inside joke that has taken on a life of it's own ever.  Hashtagsilverlining.

* I hope it rains a lot while I'm away.  This watering biz is a lot to ask of dad on a daily basis.  I'm seriously grateful he always agrees to take care of it for me!  OMG an eggplant flower!  Maybe I'll actually get to eat a few this year.  

* I miss Sadie.  I keep walking into the kitchen and looking for her.  Stop it, KK.  Stop thinking about this right now.

* All of the Lilly fabric in the bunting has faded.  That sucks.  A lot of effort to have what looks like a nearly white bunting.  

* I wasn't pancakes for dinner.  But I want to be skinny.  But there's no way I can get skinny by Wednesday.  Pancakes it is!

And for the record, I did eat a pancake with dinner!  Then I took a long walk.  Balance.  How was your weekend?  And have you ever seen a superhero movie?

I actually read an article that said spray sunscreen isn't as good! I usually put on the cream kind for a base and reapply with the spray. I would never ever crave pancakes for dinner, but I do like your thinking with that one!

I've not seen many superhero movies--Superman many, many years ago, the old Batman with Michael Keaton. I wasn't crazy about them but didn't hate them either. However, I did see the recent Dr. Strange and OMG, loved it!!! But I agree, I think HP should be classed as a super hero too.
