HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEPHEN KING!

I’m not a fan of horror flicks or books. Stephen King is about “It” for me and only ONE of his books/flicks…

I’ve seen a few more but I’m a one-time watcher only. I know people who like to watch them over and over and over. I would not be that person!

I don’t like to be scared and I don’t like those jump-scare movies either. I tried watching those scary movies my kids watch and I jumped so many times I thought I was being electrocuted!

Oh. And I don’t like creepy dolls either. I won’t even go down the doll aisle in the toy section at the store! Nope. Not fucking it. 

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be one of Stephen King’s kids. I mean seriously, what would you be afraid of??

And I would totally love to see his house at Halloween.
From a distance…

How about you? Any horror fans out there? What are your faves? Movies? Books?
Share in the comments and please don’t let me be the only baby in the group. Somebody else must get scared like I do!

MELLOW MONDAY

This may be true but waking up at 2am is definitely a sign of my bladder awakening!
Do you think the human bladder shrinks when a person goes to bed?
Asking for a friend.
I’m old… Fuck.
PS – I feel totally jipped outta’ my spiritual awakening this morning.


In other news…
Look for the Harvest Moon tonight and toss some bones into the “bone fire.”
I wonder who’s bones they tossed in…
And speaking of “bone fire.” We had such a beautiful day today  I spent most of it outdoors letting the sun warm up these old bones of mine, which, interestingly enough, will one day also be thrown into a bone fire. So, there’s that.

Later I had some homemade lentil soup – delish – and worked on some birthday cards for the Sept./Oct. birthdays in my family, and of course, I caught up on some reading. All n’ all a pretty mellow Monday.

I hope you had a wonderful Monday and were able to soak up some rays and spend a little time with your favorite things, and/or people.

Fall is only two days away, people!!! Raise your hand if this time of year just makes you feel all warm n’ fuzzy inside. It does me!

Enjoy the moon tonight!!

SUNDAY FORECAST

This sounds like a perfect plan to me.

The tea, pumpkin spice.
The book, The Secret In Their Eyes.


Hi everybody. Long time no see, huh?
Truth be told, I got a little nudge from a fellow blogger who told me I hadn’t blogged in forever.
He was right.
So, here I am… Again.

It’s a fabulous rainy day here with gusting winds and temps in the 60’s and I’m savoring every moment because we don’t get these days very often. It’s definitely a day to snuggle in and read, take a little nap and maybe do some baking. 

That’s my plan. What’s yours?
Please share in the comments below.
I do so love reading your comments!

MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Creepy

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.


❤ RICHARD’S RESTAURANT
We met by the bathroom. You are hot. Tell me what happened so I know it was you. Be specific. Things were said and done. I will not reply without specifics.
**** Dear We Met By The Bathroom…
First I need to know. Is Richard’s restaurant located inside this building because it’s really got that “Richard” vibe going on… Just sayin’.

Okay, so things were “said and done… Be specific.”
Is this specific enough for you??
Moral of this Craigslist love connection?
Stay out of buildings that could be nicknamed Dick.

❤ SCAVENGER HUNT
Email me for clues to to the location of the first item on list. what is it, you say? could be Shiny, green or a lotto.. it will also have clues to find the next item and so on until the list is completed. once completed there will be a bonus round!
**** Okay, seriously… Could be shiny, green or a lotto????
It could also be this.

And this could be your bonus round…
Seriously. JUST – SAY – NO!

❤ IN TOWN THIS WEEKEND
Greetings plenty of free time for me this weekend. interested in Darker skin
**** Need I say more….

Could be just me but Craigslist’s love notes seemed especially creepy this week…


IN OTHER NEWS:
From my previous post, “Thankful Thursday – Copy That.”
My allergies are MUCH better AND I made my garlic hummus!
It was so delicious I made 2 batches. The first one to follow a recipe, the second one tweaked to my liking – LOTSA’ GARLIC! I’ll be making this again, and again. So much better than store-bought.


So, happy Monday! How was your weekend? Remember when I said last weekend seemed to drag on and on? Well, this weekend just flew by! I didn’t have much going on because when I open my front door and heat hits me like a 400-degree oven, guess what? I’m inside in the AC!

But Mimi… Your car has AC. Yes, yes it does but the parking lot into the store doesn’t and I’m pretty sure nobody wants to see puddles of my flesh on the hot ass asphalt from my car into the grocery store!

Wait… I may have stumbled on a new weight loss plan… Hhhmmm.


ZERO plans for today folks. ZERO. This means I’ll be lounging inside with the AC and hopefully finishing up a few projects AND the book I am currently reading.
It’s a British mystery and I’m really diggin’ all things British right now.

But I’m also diggin’ this New Zealand crime show on Brit Box.

It reminds me a lot of Midsomer Murders which I also love.

How ’bout you?
Anybody reading and/or watching anything thrilling and spine-chilling???
I’m always up for a new read or new watch. Please share!

THANKFUL THURSDAY – COPY THAT

That’s the phrase that was stuck in my head this morning when I woke up. Copy that.
I didn’t have any weird vibe or negative vibe so I’m guessing everything in my dream was fine, whatever that dream was. Dreams are so weird. Sometimes there’s meaning to them. Sometimes you can connect the dream with things that happened throughout the day or something you watched. Sometimes they mean absolutely zero. I’m pretty sure this was that.


I also woke up to some wonderful rain and much lower temps that aren’t supposed to climb out of the 60’s today which I am totally loving. What I’m not loving? Waking up to these pain-in-the-ass allergies.  Omgosh. I feel like I just want to cut a jack-o-lantern triangle right at the bridge of my nose just so I can breathe!
Yeah. Sorta’ like that.

Currently, the girls and I are enjoying some loose leaf rooibos tea, with a bit of ginger, lemon balm, cinnamon, calendula petals, and all kinds of good stuff to help with my allergies. So far so great.

I’m also taking allergy meds. Supposedly non-drowsy allergy meds but I think that’s a big fat lie because they make me soooo tired.
Right!


If I can get my allergies under control I’m going to make some garlic hummus today.
And just in case you’re curious…
That’s a 5lb bag of garbanzo beans.
I can’t wait to get started!


THANKFUL THURSDAY
1.) Today I am thankful for tea and allergy meds.
2.) I’m thankful for the much-needed rain.
3.) I’m thankful for a cozy bed to fall back into until the allergy meds work.


What’s on tap for all of you this Thursday?
How’s your day going so far? (It’s 6:43am here)
What are you thankful for today?
I hope you all have a wonderfully amazing day or a wonderfully chill day.
Whichever, whatever, just enjoy!

MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – The Intros…

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…

I THINK YOUR NAME IS
“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!)

MEMORIAL WEEKEND GARAGE SALE
“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.

CRANKSHAFT NEEDS SOME CLEANING
“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…


MY THANKFUL LIST – 
(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!
