Okay so I’m doing a public service announcement first. To all you people who have home offices here’s a cautionary tale. This could happen to you if you’re not careful.
So this kind of thing only happens to people like me. But in theory it could happen to you. I had a case of Wild Cherry Pepsi that boytoy had brought me on top of my gorgeous roll top desk. Why was it there you wonder…well easy access of course. I require copious amounts of caffeine to be this nuts people. Clearly the spaz like lifestyle has to be induced by something right. So mini-me and myself came home giggling like school girls the other day after we were done at the barn. Hubs happened to be in town and was fixing something around the house and watching demon spawn puppy for me. So we tore in like crazy girls, and then announced we were now heading to a movie. We don’t get much girl time out of the house these days with hubs working out-of-town so we wanted to enjoy it. Hubs just laughed, and said have fun. He thought briefly about coming with us until when we told him we were going to see Channing Tatum, er, I mean 21 Jump Street. So we now had about 4.79 minutes to get out of our barn attire and cover up the aroma of horse. As we tore around I shut the door to my blog room while saying to hubs “leave that shut cuz I don’t want anyone in there messing it up or the cats getting hair all over the place”. As the door shuts and I turn to run off we hear this loud crashing noise. Yup, half a case of Wild Cherry Pepsi rolled out of the box from 4 feet in the air and hit ceramic tile floors. Um, yeah. It was bad. I slowly opened the door and peeked in. I kid you not, it looked like a crime scene. Mini-me looks in, we look at each other and break into hysterical laughter, the stuff of legends I tell you, we laughed that hard. I could not stop. It was on the ceiling, the walls, my cookbooks, my food for my foodie penpal (sorry the stuff is sticky when it arrives), my photography lights, my tripod, my camera, my laptop and everything else in the entire room. There was not a dry spot anywhere to be found. By the time we stopped laughing we realized we would be missing the movie since we only had 0.7 seconds left to leave. I started wiping down my laptop when I heard hubs say “just go and I’ll clean up”. I think my chin was sticky the rest of the day after it hit the Wild Cherry Pepsi floor. Never one to argue when life hands you a miracle, I grabbed mini-me and we ran out the door laughing like lunatics. The same way we had arrived. I looked back briefly to see hubs shake his head and laugh. As much as the man can chuff me off like no one’s business, you gotta love a guy who’s willing to spend 1.86 hours cleaning up a mess he did not make so his wife and daughter can spend 1.5 hours watching a movie.
So the moral of the story? Boytoy if you’re reading this “I need more Wild Cherry Pepsi”. Whew, glad we cleared that up.

Our farmer’s markets should be opening next month. We tend to be behind with our winter season being so harsh. So you can look forward to Farm Fresh Fridays to make its return next month. Mini-me and I cannot wait to get started on that again. It turned into such a cool weekly excursion for us. It almost always resulted in fish n chips being had somewhere along the way. Bring on the fresh fruits, veggies and fish. I love summer in Ontario!
Hope you all have a great weekend. It’s a holiday weekend here in Canada so let the chilling out commence. Or the yard work. Whatever happens first.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
