“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it –
‘Your local serial killer hunting ground.’

The Lions blew it yesterday and gave the game to the Packers and just thinking about it makes my head want to explode. They play the Seahawks on Saturday. I have no comment.
2017-detroit-lions-just-one-before-i-dieOne of my goals this year was to sew my way thru my fabric stash and not buy any fabric until I absolutely, positively must. This is going to be beyond challenging but I’m going to give it my best shot.

After rummaging thru box #1, I picked out my first fabric of the New Year to start my first project of the New Year. I’m pretty excited to start because I’ll be doing the majority of fabric cutting on my new Cricut that “Santa” brought me. I LOVE this new toy.
Project photos to follow.
2017-1st-fabric-jan 2017-divider-line-blue-icyAnother one of my goals was to read more so I signed up for the Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge and 2017 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge with Corinne over at ‘Everyday Gyaan.’ I committed to reading 50 books this year. I’m hoping it’s more and it’d be super cool if I doubled that! I love to read and I used to have a book glued to my hands. I need to get back to that.
My current read is…
2017-book-1-the-untellingSo far it’s super good.
2017-divider-line-blue-icyI jumped on the scale this morning just to take a lit’l look-see and immediately set another goal. Holy crap, there’s no way I’ve gained that much weight and yet, apparently there is… Back to Slim Fast and Weight Watchers, it is
2017-batman-robin-you-were-fat-in-august2017-divider-line-blue-icyWe’ve still got quite a bit of snow here and it’s super cold out so I’ll definitely be inside working on my projects and getting some reading done.
What do you do when it’s too cold to really go out and enjoy the day?
Are you working on any projects?
Reading any good books?

Also, it’s day 2 into the New Year. What’s the vibe?
Does it feel like it’s going to be a good year or one fraught with challenges??
Lemme’ know in the comments below.

Happy Monday! Here’s to a great week ahead!

  1. Well, you know I’d recommend reading through the “Longmire” series by Craig Johnson, I just read “The Nest” by Terry Goodkind, a kind of urban fantasy minus the vampires and werewolves! LOL For a little modern day suspense, try “The Innocent” by David Baldacci.
    I rarely make New Year’s resolutions…anytime is a good time to make a change!
    Those “Missed Connections” ads are the worst! Scary that people think that other people actually check that section on the off chance there is an add for you…weird!!!

  2. I can’t…just can’t deal with these missed connections! But…the new year? So far, only day 2, but still, so far so good! Ask me again on February 1.
    Love the fabric choices…love you, too, btw!

  3. Love the ads. Serial killers indeed. That or just plain crazy.

    I love to read too. I have a book I’m reading all the time. Finish one then get another off the pile of books to read. Hubby does the same thing.

    I’ve not gained any weight this holiday season. I’m guessing it’s because I’ve not had any homemade candy, cookies, pies or cakes. Not a thing. I’m pretty happy about that. I still need to dump the extra 20 pounds I’m carrying around, but that’s another story.

    I’m waiting for spring and the good weather so we can be at the boat and enjoy what we love doing. Boating.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  4. Oh, you and me both Sandee. I can’t wait for spring and good weather to come around. We had a white Christmas so I’m pretty much done but we got more snow overnight and with these cold temps it won’t be melting off anytime soon. You’re so lucky you gained no weight over the holidays. I always plunge in head first to all the goodies. I live for the day when all I have to lose is 20lbs. I’m hoping to get back to reading like that. Finish one, grab another. I say I don’t have the time but in fact I do, I just choose to binge on Netflix and that needs to come to an end. Seriously.

  5. Apparently you have made the classic mistake and failed to set you scale back to January weight savings time. Move it back five pounds every January 1.

  6. I always have a good laugh checking out the craigslist ads!
    It’s hard to believe you will use up your stash before you buy more, I used to be a stasher and had a bedroom closet full – never passed up a special or an “Isn’t that pretty?”
    I still have to finish off my goodies before I look at the scale …

    1. I know SJ. It’s going to be sooooo difficult not to buy any but I’m going to try my best. I just need to stay away from any and all stores and people who may have fabric. Seriously, I have too much as it is. – I finished up my goodies before I jumped on the scale too! As it turns out I really shouldn’t have. Ugh.


  7. Yeah I need to put the carbs down and slowly back away but I like them. lol I’m sick of dieting and my hubby thinks I’m the hottest woman he’s ever seen and that’s all that matters. haha But I can’t make resolutions cause I always break them. So I’ll stich, read, do other crafties, shoot pics like normal and hope this is a better year.


  8. Well, then if Russell thinks you’re hot, hey. Eat, drink and be merry. I, on the other hand don’t have a Russell, I do however have a dr. and I don’t think she’s going to think I’m the hottest woman she’s ever seen and even tho I love her to death, I really don’t want any more lectures/pep talks from her. 🙂 – No resolutions here either. Just goals. They don’t seem quite so daunting or demanding to me.


  9. Not even kidding you this is what I read….
    ”These are real “love notes” that stranglers leave for other stranglers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.”
    Probably accurate.

    That New Year thing… welllll I’m not making any new resolutions. I have a list of every day good shit I try to work on every day. Some times it goes well and other days it’s just total shit.
    This year our home is in for a lot of changes and I feel like I should just give myself a break and play loose and free with whatever gets thrown at me.

    I usually pick a word of the year to focus on. Last year my word was ‘Friendship’ I tried to cultivate new ones, reconnect with old ones, treasure the current ones and over all just show up/be present and all that yaya sister shit I’m into. (insert prayer hands and hearts)

    So my husband said just last week after an ongoing ‘friend’ folly from 2016….. so what did you learn from all that!!! HAHAH
    Lessons. I learned some big fucking lessons. BLAH.
    So I’m not picking any damn words this year just to be safe!

    Fabric stash. I didn’t buy any new fabric last year and will work through more of it this year. My daughter bought a new home so I think I could come up with shit to sew up for her. No doubt a fuck ton of pillows will happen.

    The scale…. who I have named ‘That Fucking Scale’… I was fat in August too which was the last time I got on ‘That Fucking Scale’. Wish I could blame the holidays.

    So Happy New Year, I started you off with an epic comment.

  10. This is the MOST epic comment. Thank you! 😀 And seriously? Stranglers is probably much more accurate. What is with those people?? – No New Year, new me bullshit either. I’m just gonna’ be me – my word of the year – be a decent human being and like you, roll with it. As long as all of those I hold near and dear are here to ring in 2018. I’m good. – Happy New Year way over there! I’m waving. Squint. You can see me. 🙂
