Multitasking – #1LinerWeds

Short and sweet observation today.

“There is no multitasking when you are eating pistachios.”

Just try eating these and doing anything else.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you would like to join in on the fun, you can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.


  1. Wow, it looks really wet there! I suppose the ground was parched and is happier now. We are getting that heat now, not nice. I love the puddle photo. Is that really a squash flower and not a zucchini one? They look so much the same. You may have seen how my father and Italians stuff and fry them. Yum.

    • According to my wife, it’s a squash. We also have been known to fry them. We had three days with thunderstorms and heavy rain. Dry and cooler now, 78°f (26°c). Looks like the rain returns on Friday.

  2. I found out why our drought stopped and the rain started. Our community is supposed to get painted. But first they have to power-wash awnings, etc. You know the workers don’t want to get rained on while they power-wash — they might get wet… 🤪🙄

  3. All the critters in the post today…that was fun! Your reflection photos are so pretty, Dan. You could do an entire post on those. You know, kind of a reflective posting….🤣

  4. Your one liner is a truism!! Pistachios are too much work! Easier to eat pistachio ice cream!

    Love how everything is coated in raindrops. Chippy, the bunny and the squirrel all look like they’re coming out for a breath of ‘dry’ air! Good of you to straighten out Maddie’s porch. She likes her areas to be “just so”!

    MiMi may not have asked you for a belly rub, but she looks likes she’s giving you a ‘thank you’ kiss! Wait! She might be biting you! Lol.

    Enjoy these couple of quiet weather days. I don’t think we’ll ever have a stable weather system again.


    • I think you’re right about the weather, Ginger. We are moving away from anything close to normal.

      All the critters were happy to see some dry weather.

      The cat is MuMu (impossible to tell) and she is biting. I’ll call it a love bite 🙂❤️


  5. Hi Dan – fun post … I just prefer shelled with a touch of salt on them … but understand critters come first sometimes. We are having glorious weather … but the storms come tomorrow they expect … typical tennis time!! Cheers Hilary

    • We’re not sure we have the mock orange in the best place. It does well each year, but it is not thriving by any means.

      That storm drove Maddie crazy. She was so scared, almost inconsolable. We tried everything we knew, but nothing worked. She just wanted to hide in the back of her crate – at one point, she put herself under the cushion.

  6. Love your gallery of images! Have noticed I see more bunnies in the suburbs than I saw in the forest:) I like pistachios, not because it’s a single handed task, but because …. I like to eat them:)
