Two things consume my life right now.
The garden and this game.
The garden, in its present state, is pretty dismal.
Some of my prized plants (the pink gaura and the rosemary bush, NOOOO…..?) didn’t make it past winter. A few evergreen trees that provided privacy were damaged and bent from the weight of the snow and will have to be taken out. Lots to do in the garden!
But, still, I set aside time everyday to play that addicting game! I’m here to challenge anyone who can better my time in the game.
See that number right there, on the upper left hand corner of the screen? I’m very proud to say that I am now the reigning queen of Number Bonds, at 50.126 seconds. If you can beat it, I will relinquish my tiara to you. Willingly. Only because I know you can’t ?
And now, it’s time to fiesta!
But first, features from last week’s fiesta:
“I loooove this!! Just the thought of it makes me drool, and it looks beautiful in its simplicity. That’s what I call understated elegance.” — Angie
“I love delicious recipes with a healthy twist. I would never guess there is cauliflower lurking in these cheesy beauties. Yum!” — Antonia
“What a beautiful cake! This is the perfect warm weather dessert! I could see this cake being a hit at any event!” — Antonia
“What, my favorite tea IN cookies?! Well I’m stoked! I need to try these!” — Angie

I’m not very into games, but the other day I started playing candy crush, with my boys sitting next to me telling me what to do… so I’m no match for your number game lol!
Thanks so much for featuring my cake!
I’m not usually into games, but we started playing this with the students in my school, as a tool to get them to remember their math facts, and now I’m hooked ?
Happy Mother’s Day Angie, Molly and to all my friends here! Lovely features Angie! It has been a long time since I partied with you guys.. work has kept me on my toes.. I miss you all..
Hi, Su! Happy Mother’s Day to you, too! I understand totally. I’m happy to see you take a break from work to party with us this week?
Personally I’m addicted to a game called Two Dots…I don’t even want to look up your game because I will probably like it too much! Good luck with the gardening, happy FF!
I’ve heard of two dots, but haven’t played it. I guess I shouldn’t start ? I’m hoping to recruit my kids to help in the garden this weekend ?
Happy Mothers day to all the beautiful mothers out there…all the recipes out there are amazing
Thanks, Lathi! Happy Mother’s Day to you, too! ??

The only game I play these days is blogging! And it’s pretty addictive! As well as time consuming. Thank you so much for featuring my recipe and thank you to Antonia for selecting it!
Blogging alone can easily take up all your spare time if you let it! For me the key is finding balance, but unfortunately more often than not one thing or another gets overlooked whenever I’m busy on the computer blogging or playing games ? Love that scone recipe!

Hi Angie, Happy Friday! It’s my first time joining in with Fiesta Friday and what a fantastic company to be in! Enjoy your weekend gardening 🙂
Welcome to Fiesta Friday, Jo! What took you so long to get here?! 😀 Well I’m glad you’re here!
Good luck with the garden Angie! I’ll have to ask my husband if he has heard of this game. He loves things like this. Have a great weekend and Mother’s Day!
Have a happy Mother’s Day to you, too, Antonia! Maybe your husband can beat my time/score and when he does I’ll send him my imaginary tiara ?
Jas - All that's Jas says
I hope you’re having a fabulous day, Angie. Happy Mother’s Day!
You, too, Jas! Happy Mother’s Day! ?
Jhuls | The Not So Creative Cook says
I think it’s a good that I only play Blitz.? I am not very patient when it comes to games. Any games. I think I might throw my phone when I don’t beat your score. I want to keep my phone in a good shape, so I won’t even try.? Happy Mother’s Day, Angie! Happy FF, too!?
Btw, I am available to co-host. Tell me when.?
It’s probably best that you don’t start, Jhuls. All these games are too addicting! I’ll let you know about cohosting. Probably end of May or early June I’ll be needing your help. Thanks! ?
Helen at the Lazy Gastronome.com says
Delicious Features! Thanks for hosting a great party! Have a wonderful weekend.
You, too, Helen! Have a great Mother’s Day weekend ?

Ha ha! I try to avoid games….. way too addictive and waste so much time that I should be using elsewhere!
Thanks for featuring my Rhubarb & Custard Cakes….. ‘understated elegance’….. I like that! Thank You x
I know… I know…but I can’t help it now, I’m hooked! I’m hoping to make your cakes soon!
Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Fiesta Friday to everyone! I’ll be by to visit…I’m afraid with all my blog updates (and yes, I admit it! I started playing that game), and with a busy weekend, I’m running a bit behind! Every post I’ve peeked at so far has been so tempting!!
Did you really start playing? What’s your best time? I sense a challenger coming my way ? Just take it easy this weekend. We need to milk Mother’s Day as much as we can! ??

I played an online game with multiple users back about eight years ago. It took way too much much of my time, and so I no longer play computer games… though I can be tempted by the earlier Tetris or the truly ancient Space Invaders… perhaps. At least, fortunately, just for a little while.
I’m actually better off cooking… Grin.
Oh I remember Tetris! It was such a great game. I can easily become addicted to it again ? I know these games are a waste of my time, but I can’t help myself. But they can also be stress reliever! That’s my excuse ?
OMG!! I was the tetris queen~I’ve never found anyone else who could finish the game! haha! good memories!
Would you like a Tetris tiara? ?
Sometimes when I need to force myself to do nothing I get stuck in silly games, it can be very addicitve and it is impossible to do somethign else meanwhile!
I am lucky, M has been digging, planting and doing gardening stuff like crazy lately so I hope to be able to display the fruits of his labour later! I have mainly been in the kitchen and just pop my head out every now and then it seems but am not complaining!
Brilliant features and am so glad I finlly made it to my fave foodie party! 🙂 xx
How good of M! My husband just cares about his lawn, not much else. I’m pretty much responsible for all the planting, so if I don’t do it, nothing will grow. So far I haven’t done much ? Besides there’s the resident bunny out there ?

WHY? and HOW?! Angie your game has been driving me insane!!! Why did you post a link!!! As if I don’t have enough things to keep me busy!!! and HOW… HOW many times have you played it to get that score!?!?!? Maybe I should play with bonds to 10 and not 20?! Seriously… HOW did you get 50??? No time to look at recipes – I ‘NEED’ to get nearer your score!!!
?? LoL, so sorry! I can get 50 seconds only when playing 10, it’s the easiest. The more you play the easier it becomes. You pretty much have to identify several pairs at once, there’s no time for looking. There are 50 pairs, so if you can do 1 pair per second, you’re there. Easier said than done, but if I can do it, so can you ?
Life Diet Health says
My mouse doesn’t move that fast! But nearly… I can now do 52.710?
I actually just did 44 tonight ?
