❤ “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.”

Custom white Dodge Ram. 🔥
You held the door for me.
Told me you liked the color of my Lincoln (in a sexy soft voice)
You ride a motorcycle. Nice sunglasses! 😎
Like at 1st look!
I wrote the color of my car on a piece of paper with my phone # to put under your wiper, and then you were gone! 😢
I would love to chat!
*** Dear Ms. Lincoln,
Ya’ know, I’ve had a lot of guys hold the door for me and I’ve heard, “you have beautiful eyes,” “love your smile,” and occasionally the “nice rack” comment but not a one of ’em ever mentioned the color of my vehicle.

I’m curious. Did you have sunglasses on?
Were you not smiling??
Maybe you’re the President of The Itty Bitty Titty Committee???

I may be wrong but I’m gonna guess if Mr. Dodge Ram told you he liked the color of your Lincoln in a sexy, soft voice he probably plays for the other team.

This is the way I’m feeling today, how about you?

I spent a lot of time outside this weekend and stayed up waaaay too late. I may have enjoyed one too many cups of hot cinnamon tea compliments of Fireball Whiskey but it was chilly outside and a girl needs a warm-up!
Omgosh… So, so good.

Something else that’s so, so good? My unplugged weekends. I got some reading in AND some sewing. Working on some Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas projects.

I only have 3 crochet projects in the works and those I take out when I’m binge-watching Jack Ryan on Amazon.
Who knew the goofy guy (John Krasinski) from The Office would transform into hottie Jack Ryan??If you can watch it, you should. It’s a great show.

Okay. Here’s the part where you share with me what all of you did over the weekend and what your week ahead is looking like.
You know the drill. Share, share, share in the comments below!



  1. I went to happy hour Friday night with 2 friends and then we went to Starbucks after. Some creeper sat right next to us in the comfy chairs, even though there were other seats free. He just looked at his tiny phone the entire time and listened to our conversation! Grey hair in a pony tail, John Lennon glasses and a green army type jacket. Not suspicious looking at all!


  2. If there is a weirdo in the house they find me in two seconds. I’m not kidding. It’s an art and I just don’t know why I was given such a curse. I can’t tell you the weirdos that I’ve had to run from.

    Love Jack Ryan. He’s most handsome.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Karen. Love and hugs. ♥


    • Omgosh. Me too! It’s like I have a flashing neon sign on my forehead, “all freaks welcome.” Which is irritating because I’ve worked hard on perfecting my “resting bitch face” aka just my face. – I agree. Jack Ryan is sooo dreamy. ❤ Love and big hugs to you too. ❤

    • It’s why I can’t go into Walmart. I immediately get annoyed at first sight. Thanks for the post love. 🙂 I don’t know if Monday is happy yet or not. I’m still yawning…


  3. Who compliments the colour of your car? That definitely doesn’t sound like a love connection. 🙂 Made a note to try Fireball whiskey in my tea! I’ve been adding Vecchia Romagna (Italian brandy) to mine, trying to shake all the sludge loose from my chest, following a week of coughing and fever. Ugh! January sucks on so many levels. 😛 Hubby was interested in Jack Ryan and we’ll probably check it out, soon. Thanks for the review! I just finished season six of Grace and Frankie on Netflix. Silly fun! 😀


    • Oh no. I hope you’re feeling better soon. Fireball might do the trick. It’ll definitely warm you up and might help you get the sludge out. I agree. January does suck. It’s always a gray downer of a month. Yesssss. Watch Jack Ryan. It is sooo good. I’ve been watching Grace and Frankie too. I just love that show.


    • Yikes. I hope your mom’s housekeeper is on the mend. In the meantime, it’s nice that you’re available to help your mom out. Reading weekends *are* fabulous. 🙂


    • I need to get on board with writing posts ahead of time. It really would make life so much easier. – Laundry… The never-ending cycle of cycles. 🙂


  4. LOL I think you nailed it with Ms. Lincoln! I haven’t seen Jack Ryan on Amazon but I’ve seen previews and it’s amazing how that goofy guy from The Office transformed into such a hottie, I agree! Your unplugged weekend sounds nice and relaxing.

    It was frigid cold here all weekend, some snow that didn’t stick long and mainly ice. I took some pics of cardinals at my birdfeeder while the snow was falling. I had wanted to go to the movies to see Little Women but the weather was just too crappy to go out. I might go next weekend. I only see maybe one movie a year in a theatre. I believe in annoyed at first sight too! Have a great week. 🙂


    • If you’re looking to watch a new series I highly recommend Jack Ryan. It really is a great show. – I saw your pic of your cardinals. So beautiful. I miss them. I think I’ve seen maybe one in all the time I’ve lived here. There were lots in Michigan. – I didn’t know there was a new Little Women movie out. I’ll have to check into it. – We’ve had mild weather and for that I am sooo thankful. I think we’ve had only a handful of days that had snow or cold temps. Very fortunate to not have to deal with that. – Hey. When are you coming back to blogging? 🙂

      • I had hoped to get back to blogging already but there’s been so much stuff going on…some of it fun and some of it just so frustrating (like stuff involving my husband’s family!). But hopefully I’ll have time to get my blog going on WordPress soon. 🙂


      • Ugh. The difference between in-laws and outlaws. Outlaws are wanted… I totally get it. Just make a HUGE announcement when you’re back at it! I know everyone will be so happy!
