NOVEMBER TWENTY ONE – The Randomness Of Me @3am

Seriously… So, I’m laying in bed and I know there are dishes in the sink. I toss, I turn, I sleep for a minute and dream about doing those damn dishes! I wake up and do the damn dishes.

Also. I was tossing and turning because I tweaked my back at some point and now it’s a nerve thing. Randomly I’ll feel like I’ve just been hit with a cattle prod in my lower back and that’s always a lot of fun.

Waiting to see the dr. yesterday I realized how shitty my blog looks on my phone. Which means it looks shitty on everyone’s phones. Ugh.

Same ‘ol same ‘ol at the doc’s. Nothing life-threatening. “Lose some weight…”
Seriously…
Trying to figure out why the media is so down on Lt. Col. Vindman. Of course, that’s the only part of all that political crap I watched so what do I know but he appears to be a stand-up guy.

I can’t believe we finally have snow in our forecast… It won’t stick because it’s been so warm but a few flurries would be very holiday-ish.

Why is everyone hating on Green Bean Casserole these days? Seems like for the past few holidays NOBODY wants the Green Bean Casserole. I remember a time when EVERYBODY wanted it… Admittedly, I have done my fair share of Wayne Gretsky grocery shopping snagging up the last of those French’s Fried Onions for my Green Bean Casseroles. My youngest loves it!

Another Thanksgiving mishap. My daughter was carrying two full glasses of iced tea to the table and she tripped over a carpet. Pro that she is tho she didn’t spill one drop of tea as she fell to her knees! She did, however, break two dinner plates that her elbows landed on! Tada! Thankfully, she wasn’t hurt. Something else we laugh about at this time of year.

Alas. My randomness and weirdness have run out. Okay, just my randomness. What’s on your plates for the day? The week? The weekend? Anyone traveling for Thanksgiving? What’s happening in your corners of the world??
Please share.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

NOVEMBER NINETEEN – No Snow November

Seriously… I don’t know who took Idaho’s “normal” cold n’ snowy weather but I gotta’ say. Heading into the end of November with temps in the 50’s n’ 60’s is pretty cool. Even cooler? Driving around town, windows down, beautiful sunny day listening to Christmas music! The Grinch song is killer, especially when you pull up to the light and the car next to you, a whole stinkin’ family, mom, dad, and kids ALL sing along with you! That was fun.

I do love my snow but I sure could get used to this warm fall weather year-round!
If any of you remember in my last post a million years ago I mentioned sharing some recipes and horror stories about family get-togethers. Well… I don’t have a horror story but I do have a Thanksgiving prank I pulled on my brother-in-law.

We were all in the kitchen getting dinner and snacks made up and my brother-in-law had just poured himself a cup of hot coffee, black with sugar, no cream..
THEN he went out to get some firewood and FOOLISHLY left his fresh, steamy, hot cup of coffee unattended.

Soooooo. Wonderful sister-in-law that I am I dumped half of his coffee out and replaced it with black olive juice. The look on his face when he took that first drink was PRICELESS! You’d of thought I put acid in his mug! Omgosh. Still makes me laugh and still one of my favorite holiday pranks.
I know I’ve been away but I’ve been working on things, things that I cannot share here because they are gifts but it takes time to make things and eventually I will share all of the things!

I have a dr. appt. today and then it’s back home and back to all things holidays. I seriously cannot believe our beautiful weather. I used to put my Christmas tree up on the first snow of Boise OR if we didn’t get snow it went up the day after Thanksgiving. Looks like it’s going to be a Thanksgiving tree this year.

Parents must not be buying bikes for their kids for Christmas this year. My theory is that when parents don’t buy bikes we have no snow Christmases. If parents buy lots of bikes then we’ll get a ton of snow. That’s the way it usually worked for me. Santa would bring the kids bikes and we’d get hit with a snowstorm so the bikes sat until spring. No bikes and it’s dry as a bone outside.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your week. Raise your hand if you’re done with your Christmas shopping and are ready for the holidays. Not me but I vow to be every year so it’s another epic fail year for me. So, my yearly vow will roll into next year but if I don’t do it then either I’m just going to be Jewish! Jewish people go on cruises at Christmas.
