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.”


 

NOVEMBER THREE/FOUR – Simple Sunday/Manic Monday

This post is brought to you courtesy of
The Simple Woman’s Daybook‘.
WELCOME TO MY SIMPLE SUNDAY –

Looking out my window – I see frosty rooftops.
I am thinking – Of all of the projects I need to finish up this month!
I am thankful – That Christmas music is now playing on the radio!
One of my favorite things –
Making things!
I am creating – Afghans.
I am wearing – A cozy flannel nightgown.
I am reading – The Bible. Not much time for reading.
I am watching – Motives & Murders on Prime
I am listening to –
The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole
I am hoping – To get everything finished in time for the holidays!
I am learning – That patience is not something I have in abundance.
In my kitchen – The Instant Pot is workin’ hard for me. It’s soup season!
***I made some squash soup yesterday and it’s delicious. I’ve been asked for the recipe and honestly, it’s really just whatever you want your soup to taste like and however thick you want it. I’m a “dump” cook so I just do what looks and tastes right to me.

– Cook your squash. – Add whatever seasons and meat you want.

Tada! That’s my dump recipe.
You can find a more “real” recipes on Pinterest or make up your own!

Under my needle –
This was the last project under my cross stitch needle and now he’s put away until next year.
On my hook – This actually is just off my hook.
A moment from my day –
Finally being able to take down these creepy towels that my DIL made.

UPDATE – This is a twofer post because somewhere along my day yesterday I got distracted… Shocking, I know.

Anyway, Happy Monday everybody!
I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. You see what my weekend consisted of. All things mish-mash holidays! I suspect it will be much the same for the rest of the year but I’m not complaining. I quite enjoy the process.

Okay. Now that Halloween has passed is anybody looking forward to Christmas???
I know we have Thanksgiving first but still…

Seriously tho, Thanksgiving is coming up!
In the next few days let’s start sharing recipes and horror stories of family gatherings!

Wow. It’s after 11pm. I need to get this posted and head to bed.
I’m heading up to the mountain tomorrow but I’ll be back in the valley with plenty of time to catch up on posts!

Sweet dreams my friends!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.
