THE EARLY BIRD

Ugh. There is nothing special about being wide awake at 3am.

MY “SPECIAL” MORNING

  • Shower.
  • Laundry because apparently, this an everyday thing in our house.
    I remember my mom had one day a week that she did laundry on. I don’t know how she did it with a husband and 7 children but we always had clean clothes.
    Maybe we just had more clothes.
  • Coffee, coffee, and more coffee!!
  • Listening to my dog snore.
  • Listening to the news.
  • Watering plants.
  • Fixing breakfast.
  • Texting with my little sister who got my message from last night in the wee hours of this morning. I swear she lives in the witness protection program.
  • Social media. Facebook, Instagram, blogging.
  • Crafting
  • Sewing

I know. Be jealous.
(That up there was the start of my Tuesday post that I never got around to finishing.)
So. Happy Wednesday!
I hope you’re all happy and enjoying the midweek, if not, well, the weekend is just around the corner!

So, on Monday I did a poll regarding your sources for “reliable” news.
The survey showed that most of you rely on “other” sources rather than the mainstream sources. Of course, now, my question to that is, what is the “other” source?

It was interesting to see that almost none of you relied on social media as a source and that’s where I found the “news article” that sparked my curiosity regarding detention centers, which, for the record, scare the hell outta’ me.

It’s like a never-ending vicious cycle isn’t it?? I just want the truth.
You’re probably right Jack…
IN OTHER NEWS –
I’m making progress on my baby quilt. Not as much as I’d like, you know, because of that thing called life… Right now I’m in the arrangement stage of the quilt top. The back will just be pink terry cloth.
There is no method to my madness just whatever I think goes where. One day I’ll follow a quilt pattern – maybe.
This is a combo scrappy and string quilt. I just used pieces of fabric from my stash.

I really am trying to deplete the totes of fabric and yarn that I have.
Said no sewing/crochet/knitting person ever.
It’s going to be near 90 degrees today so maybe I’ll finish my quilt and a couple of other projects because the chances of me being outside today are zero.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, embrace the day! Unless it’s a shitty day then just have a good cry, a good beer, a good glass of wine, a bubble bath, a hot shower, a bottle of vodka. Whatever works.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.
