I Tried Watermelon and Mustard

 Today, I was using Gorilla Glue Ultimate. Now, my eye is burning from glue in my eye. At first, my eyelids were sticking together. Now, It just burns and waters. I had gotten glue on my finger and wiped it off. I really thought all the glue was off my finger! I checked my other fingers and there was a thin film on many of them!

I may have Tommy take me to the eye emergency room. 

Amazon is late with something for Tommy! Grrr! Well, it is not personal so I will enjoy it, too.

Finally, I remembered to buy watermelon to taste mustard and watermelon. Really, it is good! I won't be eating this all the time. But, it is not horrible at all. I thought Tommy was going to try it, but he refused. sigh Try it and let me know what you think. Okay?

I was all set to only have Tommy wash the clothes once a week by buying more panties and putting more dish towels in rotation. So, Thursday would have been a week since laundry. But, rain kept me from even asking him. Today, Sunday, he washed my clothes. I still had plenty, but it is going to rain for the next three days, I think. 

Instead of washing clothes seven times a month, at this rate the clothes will be washed three times each month. So, that is less water and less times the washing machine runs. I think that counts for a win. 

Today, I took my car to wash it, but the car wash was closed tight. I don't know if it was because it was Father's Day or because it was Sunday or too late. I am grateful my tires did not get a flat spot from sitting so long. I would have hated the loss of tire rubber. 

My father is dead and Tommy has no children, so there was not much happening in this house today. 

The bunnies in our yard and the birds at the park have kept us entertained.  Speaking of our yard, I did not know what plants had been given to me since they were not labeled. I thought they looked like Brussel's Sprouts, but dismissed the idea. Well, today I confirmed that since I have dozens of tiny sprouts. But, they are all hollow, just little round shells of sprouts. Bummer. Hopefully, I can revive them. 

Do you grow Brussel's sprouts? Do you think I can pull off all the tiny dud sprouts and get more?

  1. I hope your eye is soon better, emergency is such a nuisance.
    I think I'll try watermelon and mustard when watermelon comes back into season. I have sometimes made watermelon and feta salad with arugula, which come to think of it is the same idea :)

      It is somewhat better. Thanks. Hopefully my lids won't stick together when I sleep. I have never tried that salad. I think i will try it in the next week or so.

  2. I have been hearing about mustard and watermelon together. Since I like both I think they would taste okay together. Maybe in a few weeks we will have good personal size watermelon. For 4th of July? I got some wonderful cherries for .98 a lb. today. Oh they taste so good. Take care.

    1. Crystal,
      I glanced at the cherries at $3.99/lb and decided to pass. I love cherries! Maybe next week. You raise watermelons? How wonderful!

  3. Around here, watermelons aren't ready. It's tough to get nice, ripe, juicy watermelons for another month or so. The minute I get one, I'm trying the mustard/watermelon combo. Thanks for reminding us!

    1. Jan,
      Luckily, I managed to get delicious watermelon cut in a little container. Neither of us can handle a whole watermelon, even the personal ones that usually aren't very tasty.

  4. Reading the comments after your post, yes, a watermelon and feta salad with arugula is good - hope you can try it soon!

    All the best Jan

Nothing Much Saturday--This and That

Today, we saw a clip of a 98-yr-old nurse who was retiring. Tommy commented that she could get around better than either of us could.  So tr...
