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 on Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it – Your local serial killer hunting ground.

The first sentences of these Craigslist “love notes” are, I’m sure, one of the many, many reasons these freaks will be making their love connection at home – alone.
In the words of Pink…

“To the deathly looking girl at Mulls almost every night…”
**** Dear “I think your name is…”
I think your name is necrophiliac. Freak.
PS – Telling a girl she looks deathly is the equivalent of saying, wow, your dick is the size of a fucking Tic Tac.
(And if Yoko Ono had married Sony Bono her name would’ve been Yoko Ono Bono!)

“You came to our family garage sale last weekend and bought 4 books and a letterboard.”
**** Dear Memorial Weekend Garage Sale…
A few words of advice.

And altho this last one is posted in the “missed connection” section I’m pretty sure he meant to put it in the “help wanted” section.

“Needs some attention to my tools tonight. Come over an clean it up. Let me know if interested.”
*** Dear Crankshaft,
You’re disgusting. Obviously, you’re confused but I can see how the “Missed Connection” section sounds so much like the “I’m a fucking loser that has to pay women to have sex with me” section.  

PS – Maybe you should Google this.

How was everybody’s weekend? Mine felt like it crawled along at a snail’s pace and I was totally okay with that. I got lots done. I missed posting on Friday because we were having repeated power surges so I just shut everything down and caught up on some reading.

Our temps finally cooled down enough so I could get some plants to the patio. I have to be very selective because the patio gets full scorching sun and aside from cactus I have no idea what might survive out there all day. If you guys have any ideas please do share. 

Also, I have a couple of spider plants and I almost killed one. Totally bummed. I’ve always had success with spider plants but this one is just giving me issues. Again, if any of you have any tips they would be much appreciated.

Well, here we are into the 2nd week of June… You guys know we’re only 6 months away from Christmas, right? I’m so excited! 
I’m sure most of you feel like this tho. 
It’s okay. I’ve got enough Christmas spirit for all of you. 
Today I’ll be working on Christmas quilts with this cool fabric.
Christmas gnomes!

What’s your day looking like?? Share the crazy!


THANKFUL THURSDAY – How hot is it???

Did he though…

I remember and I remember doing this…

When you were a kid did you go up to fans and make that aaahhh noise?
Please don’t let me be the only weirdo kid…

(Always at the top of my list are God, Jesus Christ, my children and grandchildren, and my family and friends. Everyday, not just Thursdays.)

*** Since we hit triple digits this week I’d like to give a shout out to Willis Carrier, inventor of the air conditioner, and Schuyler Wheeler, inventor of the electric box fan.
I’m thankful for both.
NERD GIRL ALERT – You should read up on Schuyler Wheeler. He was a very cool guy.

*** I’m thankful I came back to blogging and I’m thankful for your kind words about missing me.

*** I’m thankful that I’m at 50% immunity now. Go me!
One more vaccine, another 2-week wait, and this will be me.

*** I’m thankful all of my kids and my oldest grandson chose to get vaccinated.

*** I’m thankful for the sunshine but not this heat!

And falling under the category of “blame it all on my roots…”
My twisted sense of humor found this last one to be hilarious.
Because it’s true…

Have you guys reached the triple digits yet?
Do you have AC and fans? A river, a beach, a pool??  Anything to stay cool?
I sure hope so!

June, July, and August should come with a warning label.
(Thank you, Alan Jackson. Also hotter than a hoochie coochie.)

Well, it’s after 2am here. Last night after dinner I got all cozy and started watching some Acorn TV – ‘The Brokenwood Mysteries,’ I like it a lot.
Unfortunately, I ended up falling asleep around 6:30pm. (No reflection of the show. The show is really good.) What wasn’t so good was being wide awake at midnight. I’ve tried all of those “how to go back to sleep” tips and none of them work for me so I just got up. It’s really not such a huge deal because I’m usually up by 3am every morning anyway.

My plans for the day are to stay cool. Seriously, that’s it.
What about you guys? Who’s got plans today? 
Be sure to share in the comments! 

Also, anybody else getting vaccinated? And it’s okay if you’re not. I’m just curious.
In my family and friends circle, it’s about a 50/50 split. 

Okay, I’m out. Have an amazing Thursday. I hope you have much to be thankful for. 
And hey, another blog post. Yay me!
