AND ON THE 4th DAY OF JANUARY…

The heavens opened up and Magical Mystical Mimi’s window was FINALLY installed!

I can’t even believe it you guys! And it wasn’t even an army of Oompa Loompas. No, it was an army of one!!
One little guy who shared with me that he had moved here from out of state, he’s transgendered and his wife loves to crochet and once made a whole blanket on a 10-hour car ride!
Yes. He shared this with me IN LESS THAN 20 MINUTES.

Seriously tho, really, a nice enough guy but holy hell all I kept thinking was, did I gain a lot of holiday weight because this guy obviously thinks I’m Oprah!


So, day 5 into the new year, and progress is being made and I’m all for that. Now that the window is out of the way, I’m organizing craft stuff. Michael’s is having all kinds of sales right now so I bought a couple of boxes of boxes.
These boxes are perfect for getting my crafty shit together and they fit perfectly on shelves and are super easy to label.
Also, I may be a bit obsessed with boxes. I can always find a use for a good box!
I know I’m not alone on this…
C’mon you guys. I know it’s the unspoken debate in your head too.


Omgosh. I totally forgot this was a Wordless Wednesday post. Ooops. Well, I’ve had a lot of Wordless Wednesdays last year so I’m a little wordy today. 🙂

I’m still totally bummed that Betty White died and I can’t believe everybody’s like, well, she was old. SO WHAT!
My grandma lived to be 104 and it was sad when she died too.
Betty White was cool. It would’ve been nice to see her reach that 100 mark.


Well, we’re in the middle of our first week of the new year. How’s it going for everyone?? It’s pretty good on my end. Things are rolling along. We’ve had a beautiful winter this year which gave us a white Christmas and that was really wonderful. It’s just nice – to me – to look out and see a blanket of white, sparkling snow. My whole life I thought God invented snow just for me because I loved it so much.


Over the holidays I discovered a new show that’s pretty cute and surprise! It’s not a creepy crime show!
It’s on Acorn t.v. – you need a subscription – and it’s called Under the Vines.
It’s filmed in New Zealand and it’s about a man and a woman who inherited a vineyard…


If you are able to watch it I highly recommend it. It just got renewed for a 2nd season so I’m happy about that.

Okay, well, my day is far from over but it’s been a good one and I hope the same is true for you. I hope you’re staying warm, dry, cool, and most importantly, safe, wherever you are. Sleep well!

TWOFER

This post may be a twofer as I may or may not have time to post tomorrow because I may or may not be getting a window put in! Yessssss! Finally! After over a year of waiting, several install dates and… Surprise! Scheduling delays and/or absolute no-shows… Tomorrow, between the hours of 7am and 9am I, Magical Mystical Mimi will have a brand new bedroom window! Woo hoo!

Today was all about moving furniture out of the way – again – to make way for our wonderful little window installers that I already envision as Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompas.

“I will live without freezing too like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do!”


So, that’s sort of my day today and tomorrow in a nutshell. I wanted to thank everyone for your comments. I appreciate you so much and I am heading your way. Hopefully tomorrow evening with tales to tell of my window install.
—> Holy shit, Mimi! Not tales of your window install! How exciting! We can hardly fucking wait! <—
In the meantime, I think Mimi’s Thought For The Day just somehow sums up my feelings about this whole window issue.
Who can relate???

CURRENT MOOD – Aaaahhhhhhhh…

As much as I love the hustle n’ bustle of the holiday season I really love these first few days of the new year. The beginning of the seasonal decompression.

My life is now in that New Year’s Eve “wake me up when the ball drops” phase, or in our case when the potato drops. 
True story… Not sure what the deal is with the wings on the spud, those are new but whatever. There was also some kind of glitch in the timing by a couple of seconds but that was just part of the weirdness that was Boise this year.


Another moment of Boise weirdness? Spending 3 hours in ONE Jumanji cursed neighborhood looking for the winners of the neighborhood Christmas lights contest and finding this…
I sooooo wanted to go knock on their door and ask them when the Easter egg hunt started but ya’ know what? Whatever. I hear a lot of people on my creepy crime documentaries talking about how they found Jesus in prison and I am just so happy that on this night we found Him all over this neighborhood!
And we found joy on the rooftops!
And Santa in the windows!
And eventually, we did find the winner of the Christmas lights contest.
No, not that house altho to be fair…


Drumroll, please…
This house was awesome. It had so many lights and cool stuff I couldn’t fit all of it into one pic but this gives you a pretty good idea. It really was beautiful in person and well worth the fun of going round n’ round in one neighborhood for 3 hours.

Okay, okay, it may have been my partner in crime that made it awesome and fun and so worth it but still…
Omgosh, I laughed so hard my sides ached for hours!
SIDE NOTE: Forget trying to find the winners, try finding the way out of the neighborhood! I don’t think either one of us has ever done that much swearing so close to the holidays. (Family get-togethers excluded.) 

Friendship really is one of our greatest gifts.

I hope you’re all settling into the new year. Decompressing a bit from all things merry and bright. I know we’re only 2 days in but these 2 days feel realllllly nice.
