DOES ANYBODY REALLY KNOW?

Don’t ask me! I don’t know the time or the day! What I do know is that I’ve missed two days of posting and well, here I am now.
I’m still trying to make my life normal again since my sister died. Failing miserably. I spend too much time in bed. Apparently, I’m preparing for my debut on that show, ‘My 600lb Life.’ Seriously. Eating and sleeping is mostly what I do now.

Oh. I also show up to appts an hour early. Send birthday gifts that arrive a day late and on my super cool moments, I gift someone a gift they’ve already got!
Yep. I’m that super cool.

I don’t do death well. – There. – I’ll just leave it at that.
I know Wednesday is ‘Wordless Wednesday’ around the blog-o-sphere and I thought about posting but my photo would’ve been this.
And I missed Thursday because I just missed it. The day got away.
Now it’s Friday and the weekend is upon us.
I seriously have ZERO plans for my weekend.
If I get out of bed, hooray!
If I work on some projects double hooray!
If I don’t, well, at least I opened my eyes.
That’s pretty much where I’m at.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT – 
The voice of Sesame Street’s ‘Big Bird’ and ‘Oscar The Grouch,’ Caroll Spinney,
is saying goodbye after 50 years. Talk about spanning generations. This show has been with me, my children and my grandchildren. How crazy is that??

I hope the new voice of ‘Big Bird’ and ‘Oscar’ sounds close to the original otherwise it will be like those weird ‘Flintstone’ episodes when ‘Fred’ and ‘Barney’s’ original voices changed and they didn’t sound the same anymore.
Happy Weekend everyone. I hope you can all get out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather wherever you are.
Lots to do out there…
**Pumpkin patch
**Corn maze
**Cider mills
**Hayrides
**Road trips for fall colors
And… If you’re brave not me there are always haunted houses to visit!

Who’s got plans??
Who’s hangin’ at the homestead?
Share in the comments.
I’ll live vicariously through your adventures until I can make some of my own again.
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY –

Look It Up, Y’all!

Take note. This is the first and last time you’ll ever see anything with “y’all” in on my blog. Unless of course, I’m making fun of it.
Can we just all agree right here and now that “y’all” is not really a word?? I know it’s in the dictionary but in the year 2016, that means absolutely nothing because apparently, it’s a free for all of words now.
These “so called” words were recently added to the dictionary as well. It doesn’t make them “real” words either.
– Bestie, facepalm, feels, moobs and squee. –
At what point did slang become part of the dictionary?
leaves barI’d like to know who okays the words that get added into the dictionary and what are the additions based on? Social media? Television shows? Music? Frequency of use?
If that’s the case the dictionary will need to be broken down into volumes.
Real words, slang terms and trendy words.
I mean seriously. You’ve got to draw the line somewhere.
Are you really going to a job interview and saying something like…
Or what if you’re a guy and you go to the dr. and he tells you, “Lose the weight and you’ll lose the moobs.”
leaves barDon’t get me wrong. I’ve got nothing against slang. We all use slang words in this country but just because we use them I don’t think they aaalllllll need to be deemed “real” words and added to the dictionary?
Then again. Apparently, they do.
leaves barI must confess. My biggest issue with hearing y’all is that I associate it with a southern accent and I’m just not a fan of southern accents.  I have girlfriends in the south and their voices are lovely because they have the more genteel southern drawl, like that of Dixie Carter. Unfortunately, there are also southern women – not my friends – who sound like Miley trailer trash Cyrus and that is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

On the other hand, guys with southern accents? Reeaaallllly not a fan. Even tho I married a Texan once upon a time.  Guys with southern accents are like guys who speak French. There’s just something not very manly about them.

I prefer men from the east. I like New York, NJ, Chicago accents. Those are the real guy accents.
Of course, I could be biased because I have forever been secretly in love with Joe Pesci.
Whatever. Don’t judge.
leaves barIN OTHER NEWS – Fall truly is here, y’all! Complete with lotsa’ rain and cooler temps. Perfect days for reading and baking.
This is my current read.

And I did manage to get a lit’l baking in.
Delicious banana bread. Yum!
leaves barWhat about y’all?? – Just so you know, every time I type that I laugh. Sooooo not me. –
Has fall arrived in your little corners of the world?
What do you do on cool, rainy fall days?
Is anybody experiencing changing colors just yet? It’s the thing I miss most about autumn in Michigan. Leafy trees and all of those spectacular colors…
