❤ “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.

You were buying a few things and quickly walked off. I’ve always wanted to see what an older woman was capable of. You stared at me, are you interested? Tell me what you bought so I know it’s really you.
***I’ve always wanted to see what an older woman is capable of.”
What are older women capable of???
Say hello to Katherine Knight.

“When investigators searched her home, they found his head in a pot, boiling away on the stove with some vegetables.”

Still curious what older women are capable of???

It was good seeing you today. Wouldn’t mind catching up if you would like. If not it’s okay, you looked amazing in those green pants with the boots.
***Gee, thanks Tink. Now please step away from the crack pipe.

❤ Hey, hey, hey! Happy 1st Monday of the New Year! Not anymore special than any other Monday really but this one just kinda’ sets the year in motion. Everybody’s back to work, back to school, back to routines, keeping or tossing those New Year’s resolutions.

❤ I’m happy to say that my unplugged weekend was a success and wonderfully peaceful.
Reading, relaxing and enjoying a weekend of yummy teas.

My gently used book is really good so far!
‘Alaska Black Tea Whale Tail Raspberry’
A gift “Miranda” brought back for me from their trip to Alaska.
SO yummy!

❤ Currently, there are powerline tree trimmers in the back and I’ve heard things hit my window no less than 6 times so I’m hoping nothing comes crashing thru!

❤ On tap today is a continuation of my “decrapifying.” It’s a decluttering challenge from the Facebook group, Becoming Unbusy. Toss 100 things in a weekend.

I started on Dec. 27, 2019, and so far I have 90 things tossed so clearly, I’ve failed the weekend toss but today I’m going thru nail polish and all things nails and that will put me OVER 100 things. Go me!

UPDATE: The tree trimmers DID break my window! fuckers Not a hole but a crack from top to bottom! The glass guys are a week out so I hope our mild winter stays mild.

❤ Okay. Heading out to run some errands and then home to finish decrapifying!

What’s on tap for all of you?
Back to work, back to school, back to old routines, new routines???
Happy Monday!
Let’s all have a great week ahead, shall we??


TUESDAY’S POST – Tough Titty Tuesday


❤ The beginning of every year is when a lot of people make resolutions and/or choose a word for the year to guide them and keep them focused on personal goals throughout the New Year.

❤ I am not a resolution maker but I do choose a word to keep me on task for the upcoming year.

❤ This year my guiding alphabetical star is RETURN.

❤ It’s time to return to me and to be me.
No holds barred. Unapologetically, ME.

❤ I’m peeling back the layers and getting back to the heart of who I am. I’m taking stock of what serves me and what doesn’t and quite honestly, totally putting me first! It’s been a long time coming and I am soooo ready!

❤ Adventures await!

❤ No more munching on the appetizers of life. I want the full 8-course meal and I’ll get it even if I have to cook it myself!
Especially, if I have to cook it myself!

❤ I’m in it to win it and I will win.

*** How about all of you?
Yay or Nay on the Word Of The Year??


MONDAY’S POST – Missed Connection Monday

*** My weekends will be totally unplugged. No phone. No computer. No t.v.
If anyone needs me, they can find me at home, feet up with a book in my hand and a cup of tea by my side.


❤ Check. Check. And Check!
AND, I am thankful for this New Year!!
2020! WOW!! I’m blown away!!!

❤ And here it is, day 2 of 2020…
How’s everybody doing?

❤ How was your Christmas? Did Santa bring you everything you asked for?
He was certainly generous to me and that’s surprising since I’m pretty sure I was born on the naughty list!

❤ Raise your hand if you traveled for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas.
I did not but this may have been the year to do it. Not much snow anywhere. We were in the 50’s. We got a dusting of snow at some point in December and then nothing. For me, being raised with tons of snow, I have to say, not having snow for Christmas definitely takes a bit of the Christmassy mood away.

❤ I don’t know if there’s an etiquette rule about favoring one gift above another but I have to tell you, my DIL got me the coolest – well, I think it’s cool – subscription to a book club and it’s got a little twist. You get a book every month but it’s a gently used book.

I don’t know who came up with that idea but I love it! I absolutely refuse to throw a book away. I’ll pass them on to friends or I’ll donate them to smaller libraries but I will not throw them away and now that I know these kinds of book clubs exist I’ll be making donations to them too!

❤ My DIL also got me a monthly tea subscription. It’s like she knows me or something!

❤ Okay, your turn! Share, share, share!!! Your Christmas, your New Year, favorite gifts, goals, resolutions??
Obviously, I’m not clinging to that “New Year, New You” mantra because I’m still the same nosey bitch in 2020 that I was in 2019! Ha!

TOMORROW’S POST – Word Of The Year, Yay Or Nay?

DECEMBER THREE – Tough Titty Tuesday – On the menu

I haven’t done a TTT in sooooo long! I really should do more of these because there is absolutely no lack of people bitching and moaning about total bullshit.

This week’s Tough Titty Tuesday award goes tooooooooo….
Gabrielle Union!!!!
I seriously had to look this person up because I didn’t have a clue who the hell she was. I’d seen her face but I thought she was just another one of those “famous for being famous” morons.
I guess she’s an actress. Who knew.

Most recently she’s been a judge on the show America’s Got Talent.
Jay Leno a COMEDIAN was also a judge on this show.
Apparently, Gabrielle Union wasn’t aware of the fact that sometimes comedians do these little things called JOKES and she was…
All together boys and girls…

Via People magazine here’s the atrocity committed by that damn racist Jay Leno!
(That too is a joke, Jay Leno is not a racist.)

“According to Variety, Leno allegedly joked about a painting on the wall that featured Simon Cowell — who serves as a judge and executive producer — surrounded by his dogs. Sources on the series told the outlet he joked the dogs looked like something one would find “on the menu at a Korean restaurant,”alluding to the stereotype that all Asian people eat dog meat.”

Yeah, I can see where that “alludes” to ALL Asian people eating dog.
According to this ad that’s not even true!
They eat cats too!!!
Hey Gabrielle!

Happy Tough Titty Tuesday everyone!!!
Raise your hand if you’re offended by all of these so-called offenses.
Much like they’re bringing back paper straws and paper bags, they need to bring back thick skin, a spine, and most of all a sense of humor!

Here’s hoping your TTT is filled with lots n’ lots of laughter.

Be well.
