2020 – RELATIONSHIP STATUS

If there’s anything this pandemic has taught me it’s the importance of relationships.
Seriously… My Amazon shopping history for the last 6 months looks like I was a contestant on Supermarket Sweepstakes! And today I’ve got Christmas presents arriving for my grandkids.
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and just order shit. Last night was one of those times.
I sleep with my windows open and between Life Flight helicopters and the military doing middle of the night exercises with their helicopters I always get woke up. So, what’s a girl to do?
Well, this girl placed an order on Amazon…
Sweet dreams to me!


Current relationship status?
Seriously…
Some summers the heat doesn’t bother me. This is not one of those summers.
My mindset is that I cannot wait for fall and yes this is me.
Or will be… Trust me I am on 24/7 lookout for that first leaf!


Some other relationships that are getting me thru the pandemic…



 

One of my faves…
It’s just the best.


Hulu and Amazon Prime.


And of course, my daily go-to.


No reason for this. I saw it and had to post it.
You’re welcome.


Sooooo…. Happy, happy Tuesday everyone!
What’s everybody up to?

For me, it’s all about staying cool and waiting for the Amazon truck.
It’s Christmas in August at Mimi’s!
I’ll get some sewing done, some crocheting and I’ll be repotting some plants as soon as the sun gets it’s hot ass rays away from my back patio.


And my exciting evening ahead???


What’s your Tuesday looking like?
You know the drill.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY is actually a Facebook status I posted.

“Ya’ know what. At what point when you’re peeling a million hard-boiled eggs for some egg salad do you just say fuck it, we’re just gonna’ call it yolk salad.”


 

2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – It Ain’t Easy Being Cheesy

 

“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist and this week by fellow blogger Joe over at ‘Cranky Old Man because he said he missed these ‘Missed Connection’ posts.
So, thank you, Joe, for the encouragement! Enjoy!

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.”


❤ CHEETOS
You was such a beautiful dark skin short angel you had on a sexy dress and a mask. Hopefully you see this and we can talk more and go shopping I will get the items on the top shelf for you. If this is you reply with the color of dress you was wearing!
***Okay, Mr. Cheetos…
First, THIS! Second, THIS!
And NO this does not qualify as social distancing…


❤ FIXED SOMETHING AT YOUR HOUSE
Was at your place this afternoon replacing something defective. U owe me a beer. Let me know what I was doing and my name. Would love to have a beer and maybe more?
***If she’s smart she’ll be replacing something else defective… YOU!
“Let me know what I was doing and my name.”
Hhhhmmmm. What you were doing…


Oh, and your name??? That’s easy.


HAPPY MONDAY!!!
How’s everybody doing?
What fun things did you do this weekend?
Is everybody in lockdown mode or were you able to get out n’ about?

We had a rainy weekend so I was in at the sewing machine.

I shared with you in my last post that since sheltering in place I’ve been doing a lot of online purchasing. My go-to shopping fix is Amazon but lately, Etsy and eBay have been thrown into the mix as well and it has been so fucking frustrating!

I always make it a point to check the USA box on all sites. I want all of my shops here so I’m not waiting a bazillion years for my shit. Well, as I learned, some of these shops are just out n’ out shysters! – Hey, there’s a word nobody uses anymore. – But seriously. They’re shady as hell. I waited almost a month for elastic and interfacing even tho both sellers on Etsy and eBay stated their shops were located in the U.S.
The shops are located in some other country. The warehouses they ship to are in the U.S. I know because when I was tracking all this crap it was sitting in warehouses in Seattle, WA. and Los Angeles, CA for almost a whole fucking month. I was so fed up I told the seller I wanted a refund which surprisingly was done the next day, in fact, the very day everything arrived! Ugh. After that, I now send all sellers messages. I want to know if the product is at your home or out in your garage. Can you physically touch it? If the answer is yes I place the order and I don’t care if it’s more expensive. I’ll pay extra just to get my shit in time.
Can you tell how fucking irritated I am?

Next up, Amazon. To be fair, Amazon has never let me down… Until… I purchased the biggest piece of shit vacuum I’ve ever seen! Not even kidding! Every bit of it was cheap plastic! The suction was great thru a 3″ inch slit!!! No roller on the bottom, no belts, just a plastic vacuum head with a 3″ inch slit. – Omg. Sounds like some people I know! – What’s really stupid is that I checked the reviews before I bought the piece of shit and it had thousands of 4/5 stars and really great written reviews. Totally makes me wonder what the hell people are vacuuming with this thing?? On the plus side, it came early. Also on the plus side. It’s going back.

Have you guys ever had any online buying horror stories?
I really miss just being able to go into a store and pick up what I actually need locally.


❤ As you all know I love to craft. I’ve been doing a lot of sewing but I was totally ready for a change so I started embroidery by hand and I totally suck at it but I’m not giving up.
Holy hell. The many, many, many things that are wrong with those leaves… That one that’s half done on the left? Every tip of every leaf is supposed to have a french knot.
Yeah… Well, obviously that didn’t happen but I’m not done, and no matter what I’m not giving up. I refuse to allow a little hand embroidery to kick my ass.
My goal is to have one embroidery done a month. I started last month and managed this…
I’m following some YouTube tutorials.
I’ve also got a cross-stitch project going but I won’t be sharing that until it’s complete.


Okay well, it’s been another blog post the length of ‘War and Peace’ and I’m certain I’ve bored you all to near death but I’m here and I’m blogging and I’m just really trying to get back into and stay in the blogging groove.

It’s the beginning of the week so you know I want to know what you have planned.
Lemme’ know in the comments below.
Take care of yourselves. Be safe and be well.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Like At 1st Look!

❤ “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.”

❤ EYEMART
Custom white Dodge Ram. 🔥
You held the door for me.
Told me you liked the color of my Lincoln (in a sexy soft voice)
You ride a motorcycle. Nice sunglasses! 😎
Like at 1st look!
I wrote the color of my car on a piece of paper with my phone # to put under your wiper, and then you were gone! 😢
I would love to chat!
*** Dear Ms. Lincoln,
Ya’ know, I’ve had a lot of guys hold the door for me and I’ve heard, “you have beautiful eyes,” “love your smile,” and occasionally the “nice rack” comment but not a one of ’em ever mentioned the color of my vehicle.

I’m curious. Did you have sunglasses on?
Were you not smiling??
Maybe you’re the President of The Itty Bitty Titty Committee???

I may be wrong but I’m gonna guess if Mr. Dodge Ram told you he liked the color of your Lincoln in a sexy, soft voice he probably plays for the other team.

❤ 
This is the way I’m feeling today, how about you?

I spent a lot of time outside this weekend and stayed up waaaay too late. I may have enjoyed one too many cups of hot cinnamon tea compliments of Fireball Whiskey but it was chilly outside and a girl needs a warm-up!
Omgosh… So, so good.

Something else that’s so, so good? My unplugged weekends. I got some reading in AND some sewing. Working on some Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas projects.

I only have 3 crochet projects in the works and those I take out when I’m binge-watching Jack Ryan on Amazon.
Who knew the goofy guy (John Krasinski) from The Office would transform into hottie Jack Ryan??If you can watch it, you should. It’s a great show.

Okay. Here’s the part where you share with me what all of you did over the weekend and what your week ahead is looking like.
You know the drill. Share, share, share in the comments below!

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

STROLLIN’ AND TROLLIN’

Soooooo, as most of you know I recently acquired a troll on my blog.
I believe we’ve all come to know her, thanks to Cranky, as “Sandi with a fucking i.”

In a nutshell, she’s a fucking nut job. Another Christian wanna be spewing forth hate in the name of God. The burr up her ass is homosexuality. Shocking.

Butttttt, thanks to my magical, mystical blogging posse whippin’ her ass in the comments I think she’s gone! Yaaaaayyyyyy!
Thank you all SO much!!!

Ding dong the witch is dead!
Interestingly enough, this article was on the online People Magazine yesterday.
The headline is killer.
‘Christian Group Calls for Netflix to Cancel ‘Satanic’ Show Good Omens — Problem Is, It’s on Amazon’
This is soooo funny! You really should read it. There are some pretty cute comments between Netflix and Amazon.
Nothing on tap for me today or aaalll weekend so hopefully I’ll be getting my latest quilt done and finishing up a blanket I’m crocheting. I really do love the days when I have nowhere to be and nothing on the schedule.

The weekend is here. Plans anyone??? Our temps have gone down into the 60’s so I foresee a little reading and some coffee on the back patio this afternoon.

Anybody else just stayin’ home and reeealllly relaxing just doing whatever the hell you want?  As always, please share in the comments below.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

SWEET STREAMS ARE MADE OF THESE

You stream, I stream, we all stream for…..!!!

Raise your hand if you watch/stream any of these channels.
I am guilty of all 5 and I even pay extra to have no commercials.
FYI – Waaay cheaper than having cable altho I do have a small antenna hooked up to my tv for local channels.

I will confess that the only reason I got HBO Now was for Game of Thrones but now that that’s heartbreakingly over I’m considering dropping that one. I haven’t found anything else on HBO that I can’t live without.

If any of you have an HBO show that is a must see drop it in the comments and I’ll check it out.
I’m currently into a show on Amazon called, ‘Bosch.’
Netflix is my personal favorite because it saves some great shows!
Like this one that everybody laughs at me for watching but I love it and I wish there were more episodes in the works!
And, of course, this one… Crossing my fingers, eyes, and toes for a Season 5!!
Hulu is great for catching up on episodes of weekly shows on tv that you may have missed.
I think this is a great show. It’s on Fox.
This pretty much covers YouTube for me.
Okay. Your turn. Tell me what you’re streaming and if you’re not streaming what the hell are you watching on your 500 channel 499 of them sports cable package??
I hope you’re all having a safe Memorial Day and saying a big thank you to those who died allowing us the freedom to have our bbq’s and take that extra day off of work.

Did anyone have cookouts this weekend or go to any?
What was on the menu??

It has been a tough week for me as it is my sister’s first birthday – May 26 – since she died in October of stomach cancer. I just keep thinking wishing that she should still be here…
IN OTHER NEWS –
Looks to be a beautiful day today, lots of sunshine and I hope I didn’t just jinx myself into another rainy afternoon because I’d really like to just kick back on the back patio with a good book and some good wine!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 18:51am
Temp – 50 degrees F/High today, 71 with THUNDERSTORMS!
Mood – Sad
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Idiot neighbors. – An upcoming post.
Best thing – Sunshine for the moment.
Be well.
