2020 – IT JUST KEEPS GOING AND GOING…

THURSDAY – OCTOBER 8
***** Ten Things Of Thankful
It’s always so difficult to just pick 10 but here goes…
First, I have to say, I am always and forever will be thankful for my God, my kiddos and grands, and my family and friends so they make the list every day.

Ten things I’m thankful for specific to this day are…
1.) My crockpot. Thank you, Irving Nachumsohn.
If you click on Irving’s name it will take you to a page aaallll about him and his awesome invention.
(Omg. I wonder if Paul over at Redneck Latte Ravings just had a power surge. I feel like I just took a page from his blog!)

2.) Fresh, clean water anytime I want it or need it.

3.) Yarn, because, well… Yarn.

4.) My eyesight for watching how-to videos on YouTube and reading.

5.) Off buttons. I appreciate them so much, especially now.

6.) I’m thankful that I live in America. As crazy as it is right now it’s still the greatest country in the world.

7.) Amazon. – Dear sweet Amazon, it’s like Christmas every day with you!

8.) Blogging because I’ve met the coolest people here.

9.) Chili and cornbread cuz’ that’s what we had for dinner tonight and it was delicious!

10.) I’m thankful for the chill in the house when I get up in the morning. In the middle of the night when I have to pee? Not so much.


FRIDAY – OCTOBER 9
***** Curious
If people are going to be on tv giving interviews with face masks on why can’t they find one that fits? So many of them talk, talk, talk, and the mask slides further and further down their face.

Altho, maybe not this one…
Or this one…
I hope those are clean, fellas…


SATURDAY – OCTOBER 10
***** Great find.
Butter soft leggings. Perfect fit and 2 pairs for only $19 and free shipping on Amazon.
**They come in long style too not just the capris shown.

SUNDAY – OCTOBER 11
***** Why do vitamins have to be the size of submarines?!


MONDAY – OCTOBER 12
***** Happy Columbus, Indigenous People, or whoever the hell it was that discovered America, Day!!!!

TUESDAY – OCTOBER 13
*****
AMAZON DAYS!!!
So happy I was able to score a few Amazon deals and shorten my Christmas lists.


WEDNESDAY – OCTOBER 14
***** Wordless Wednesday


Here we are in the middle of October. I feel like it should be all about kids and costumes and trick or treating but the Coronavirus and politics are hanging in the air so thick. It’s so depressing…

I just heard on the news that the doctors are advising against big Thanksgiving dinners with extended family and friends.
That’s depressing too.
What next? They’re gonna’ tell us Santa isn’t real???

Just recently a family member was possibly exposed to Covid thru work. It’s not probable but it’s possible and just the thought of them getting it and passing it on to the rest of the family is frightening.

No word yet on canceling Halloween out here. What an adjustment school-aged children have had to endure. What an adjustment we’ve all had to endure.

Here’s to finding a safe and effective cure SOON.
Be safe. Be well. Be kind.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
(Note to self)

2020 – OCTOBER HERE WE COME!

THURSDAY – OCTOBER 1
*****
What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
October, the beginning of all things pumpkin spice and all things scary.
FYI, I am not one of those people who dig the scary stuff, especially scary movies.

This is a perfect example of me watching anything even slightly scary.
I do aaalllll of these things and I may do them a hundred times in one night!
The scariest movie I’ve ever seen I first saw when I was about 7 yrs. old.
It terrified me then. It terrifies me now.
What were my parents thinking??  They thought it was so funny that I was so scared. I remember my mom telling me repeatedly that “it’s fake, it’s fake” – thru her laughter – and then she asked me,
“Oh, what are you afraid of???”
Seriously? I’m fucking 7!
This is what I was afraid of!
I grew up in Michigan. We had birds lined up on wires every day!


FRIDAY – OCTOBER 2
***** What’s your favorite NOT scary movie?
Well, it being the Halloween month I’ll go with a few I watch every year.
But…
My all-time favorite not scary movie is this one and I watch it a bazillion times a year. It’s just a cool movie.


SATURDAY – OCTOBER 3
***** Happy 3rd Birthday to this sweet girl, Miss Evelyn Rose.
And Happy Anniversary to these two lovahs… Tommy & Laci.


SUNDAY – OCTOBER 4
***** Happy Birthday to my beautiful baby girl.
Also, thoughts floating thru the universe for my sister who passed away 2 yrs ago today making for a bittersweet birthday for my daughter…


MONDAY – OCTOBER 5
***** In the crockpot.
Pork chops and tomato soup.
I’d never eaten this before my DIL made it and at first, I was all, eeewwww. Then. I tasted it and I was all yummmm.

Here’s a recipe that I found on Pinterest closest to how my DIL makes it.
(Minus the onion and tapioca.)

TUESDAY – OCTOBER 6
***** Something around the house.


WEDNESDAY – OCTOBER 7
And on the 7th day, Mimi rested…


I hope all of you are well.
Anything thrilling and spine chilling to report?

I’m taking a break from my personal FB and Instagram – again. So much nonsense going on and lately, I’ve had enough crap in my own day to day real life.
I’m still on Twitter but mostly just craft stuff now. I was getting politically out of hand over there and I just had to stop and shift my focus, which is what I’m doing at this very moment.

Since my sister died 2 years ago this week the whole beginning of October is an emotional rollercoaster for me now.

I love the start of fall but my sister died.
It’s my granddaughter’s birthday but my sister died.
My son’s wedding anniversary but my sister died.
Then, my poor daughter…
Happy Birthday, your aunt died this morning.
My daughter also got rear-ended in traffic that morning.
She was okay but talk about shittiest birthday ever…

It’s a tough time for me. I don’t do well with death at all.
Physical pain I can take.
Pain in my heart and soul? Not so much.


I hope you’ve all had a great week and I’ll be coming around to catch up!
