I MEANT TO DO THAT

This is my vibe today and this whole day is going to be “I meant to do that.” Except for the dream that jolted me out of bed an hour earlier than usual this morning. That I didn’t mean to do.

I dreamt I was having sex with this really hot guy I went to high school with – FYI, he’s still hot but that’s beside the point. – It was so unsettling and irritating. First, because I woke up an hour early. – I thought about calling him and waking him up early but he’s in Michigan so he was already awake and at work. – Second, because I could’ve had sex with him in high school if I wanted to and I didn’t then so why would I have sex with him now?

It’s going to take me all day to shake that feeling of my space being invaded even if it was only a dream. I hate dreams like that. They make absolutely no sense. I didn’t watch or eat or have a conversation, anything at all, that would’ve caused me to have that dream. So weird.

Also weird, every morning I ask Alexa to play me a song to start my day with. What does she play?
It’s like Alexa and Frank are both telling me, “it was a dream. Suck it up.”


Now I feel like I need to explain who Alexa is. Hopefully, these photos will help. You can do so much with it.
#1 – What it looks like, the name, blah, blah. 
#2. – You can load pics on it and it’s a continuous loop of whoever/whatever you want it to be.
#3 – You can say, “Alexa show me the recipe for…” 
#4 – You can have Alexa play any podcast you want to listen to.

I always check my news, weather, and traffic in the morning. 
You can watch movies and tv shows.
You can get on YouTube. It has total internet access.
I love it because it’s just so handy! Like the other day I wanted to know how many tablespoons were in 1.5 ounces dry. I asked Alexa and Alexa knew.
– 3 tablespoons. 1 tablespoon = 1/2 an ounce. –
You can ask Alexa anything except to say swear words. She can’t say those but you all know I had to try because that’s just me.

Anyway, so that’s Alexa for those of you who didn’t know and she comes in many shapes and sizes with and without photo options.


First and foremost, getting some of this that Joe (and Mrs. C)
over at ‘The Cranky Old Man‘ turned me onto. Thanks again, Joe!
THEN, I’m going to get my organizing done! I really have to make room for the new Christmas stuff and I’m also getting myself organized to start selling some of the things I make/create. I don’t know whether I’ll do that on Etsy or Facebook or wherever but it’s on my list to do but first, organization!

I know a few of you out there sell your creations as well. What platform works best for you?

Okay, I’m jumping off of here. Have a great Monday and be safe!
Oh, and while I’m thinking about it…
Raise your hand if you’re planning on getting the Covid vaccine.

  1. If you can have hot sex with someone that you lusted after in high school then I say don’t worry about it just enjoy it.

    I had to laugh at your trying to get Alexa to cuss. It’s so you.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Karen. Love you bunches. ♥

  2. Crazy dream! We got an Echo Alexa but I can’t get her hooked up on the WiFi. Excited you will have a little shop. Good luck 👍.

    My husband is in line to get the COVID shot in about 2 weeks. They consider 911 dispatch centers as needing one sooner since their job is considered essential.

    Have a good week Karen!

    1. It was a crazy dream! Oh you need to figure out how to get Alexa hooked up. She is sooo handy. – I too am excited for my shop and I appreciate your support! – I’m going to wait a bit on the vaccine. I mean, I won’t pass it up if it became a do it now or not at all situation but for the moment I’m happy to watch for those side effects… Hey! What’s the deal on your blog??? I left you a comment.

  3. A big YES on getting the vaccine, but who knows when it will be available to the general public? I’ve had dreams that left me unsettled for the whole day but thankfully, not that often anymore. Wouldn’t it be funny if you run into that guy in real life, sometime? 😄 Etsy seems to be the most popular platform for handicrafts. Our friend Gilly is doing well with it. May you have much success!

    1. Oh, he’s back in Michigan and we keep in touch. It was just one of those high school things where if anything was going to happen it would’ve been then. It didn’t and we went our separate ways. Thankfully. Lol. – I’ve thought about Etsy but I need to learn more about it I think. I don’t know how people keep from getting lost in the shuffle over there, ya’ know what I mean? But, I’ve got plenty of time to decide because currently, I am working on building up inventory. Thank you for your support!

  4. Lol, I’ve been having weird ‘Covid’ dreams, too. We’ve been stuck inside too long! Oddly, there have been numerous sex ones! Lol!

    I’m going to get the vaccine, but will probably be in the long line. It’s going to be a wait for those under age 65 who don’t work. I had to laugh at the last picture! You know there will be plenty of people who won’t get their kids vaccinated when it’s approved for kids. And it will be the same ones who claim their kids have a gluten sensitivity and 17 other allergies.

    1. Hahahahahaha! I can’t wait for this vaccine to make it’s way around but now they’re saying it won’t be until sometime in the fall right when we get blasted with the flu. Ugh.

  5. I don’t have an Alexa, but the roommates both do, so occasionally I’ll ask what the outside temperature is. That’s all I do with it.

    I do sell on Etsy. zizirho.etsy.com. It works for me. I’ve tried to sell via Facebook, but I have no traction there. It helps if you have followers. I don’t.

    I will get the vaccine the minute I can. Hopefully soon. As an educator, I think I’m a bit higher in the list than I would otherwise be (health/age).

    1. I think Alexa is so handy and the Echo Show is nice because I can have handsfree face to face visits that don’t include holding a phone all day or sitting at a computer. – How do you keep your items from getting lost in the shuffle on Etsy?

  6. I’ll be standing in line if a vaccine becomes available here but if it is only for the elderly and front line workers then I’ll wait until a general public version is released. I’m happy enough to stay home out of harms way.
    I don’t have an Alexa and probably never will.
    Love the Willy Wonka cartoon.

    1. I have thought the same thing about the vaccine, River. I wouldn’t feel right if I got it before the front line workers or an older person who needs it more than I do.

  7. I definitely plan to get the Covid vaccine!

    I hate it too when I have dreams that make no sense, somehow it always feels like wasted time. However, a dream about having sex with a hot guy from high school, that ain’t so bad! 😉 But I know what you mean about feeling like your space has been invaded. I had to laugh about Alexa playing Frank’s song for you right after your dream. Yep, Alexa and Frank were in cahoots!

    I have some friends with Alexa, it’s pretty cool. LMAO that you tried to get Alexa to say swear words!! Oh, that is so you, Karen!

    Btw, an update on my sister in the hospital, she had an abdominal cat scan today and was tired from all the testing. I’ll call her again tomorrow. Thank you for your prayers! ❤
