I was laughing at the biting your tongue and drops of sweat until I got to the Key Lime Pie part---now I'm just downright jealous!

Oh, I love this post ... so simple and yet speaks volumes. I may have to give that a try one of these days. Hope the rest of your Tuesday is terrific.

Good for you. Now that is an accomplishment to be proud of. That is too funny that you had the ability to keep track of the fun facts for us. I am sure you now know what it means about the 'noxious weeds, and by the sweat of the brow' thing we hear about.

Mary said...

After all that work (and aggravation!), you deserved that piece of pie!

Sweet Tea said...

You only had to sit down and cool off twice? You Beast of a woman!

Tamara said...

Six Cars!!! Six cars ran the stop sign!! Too bad the police don't know about this revenue generating opportunity!

A very clever idea for a post! It says a lot in a simple & cute way. And, you definitely deserved the pie after all that work.
