A RETRO A GO-GO

I know, I know. Every year I whine about not living like the Jetsons and yet another year has passed and hello??!! Not even a whisper of the Jetson’s lifestyle!

Seriously, my lit’l nerdy tech nuggets get it together and get off the “new and improved” video games, tablets, and smartphones. We have enough of those!
It’s the year 2018 for cripes sake!
What we don’t have enough of is THE JETSONS!
– Jetson’s rant over. –
**Spot the retro, very hip phrase.
Day 2 of the New Year and my friend sends me this –
This is going to be so weird. And, even weirder?
My birthday is April 1st. So, me and the Lamb of God sharing a day. Let that sink in for a minute..
You guys probably don’t want to stand too close to me on that day. A bolt of lightning might come flying down, meant for me, not any of you of course.
Oh, hey, did any of you catch this little announcement?
Hoda – who I love – has taken creepy Matt Lauer’s place as co-anchor on the Today Show.
Fantastic. Love her.
Now get rid of Savannah. I think she’s as fake as any one of those Kardashian lips, tits or ass and that’s pretty damn fake!
If I ran the network. I would do the fair and just thing.
I would fire Savannah – the Matt Lauer lover that I don’t like.
And hire….
That’s right. Ann Curry! She deserves her job back. Douche bag baldy Lauer didn’t like her – probably because she wouldn’t let him cop a feel or drool all over him – so he had her fired. She should be hired back. Her and Hoda would make a great team.
Okay. We’re into day two of the new year, any earth-shattering news to share in your corner of this crazy world?
Anybody make any resolutions? – I don’t make ’em.
Anybody have those nasty burnt tasting black-eyed peas for luck on New Year’s Day?
Who’s stuck in the deep freeze that’s all over the news EVERY day!?
Omgosh, I am so happy that we’re having a “normal” winter here. Enough snow to have a white Christmas and normal winter temps. In fact, the snow is melting now.
The mid-west and all points north and east. Geesh. I’m not sure when you guys are going to thaw! I hope you’re all keeping as warm as you can and I pray you all have heat. I’ve been reading about so many people not having heat and I hope that list doesn’t include any of you!

Wow. Late post. Not sure how the day got away but here it is almost 11pm. Be well my friends and sleep tight!
Sweet dreams ~

Mimi’s quote for the day –

***Organized, tossed n’ cleaned. Christmas is still up. Took a late night trip to the mall. Listening to my pup snoring. 

***IN THE CRAFT CORNER:
One of my crochet groups is having this challenge,
A Granny A Day Crochet-Along.”
We’re following Yarnutopia on YouTube and their
365 Days of Granny Squares tutorials.
This is my square #2.  (I’m using my scrap yarn.)

RUNNY NOSED COUCH CORPSE

To all of you who celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful Easter. We actually ended up celebrating on “Good Friday” due to work schedules, which gave me a jump start on my oh so yummy peeps!
And then this took over our home…
Seriously, for about a week I’ve had two choices in life. Lay in bed all day like a festering bed sore in the making or prop myself up like a runny nosed couch corpse.
Just before the invasion of the “crud,” life was moving along pretty well in my lit’l corner of the world. Mz. Milclay treated me to a “girly day” and it was so, so, much fun! We went to lunch at a place I had never been to. A super cool place with great food but shitty service. Still, a great place all n’ all and minus one server chick, it’d be perfect.
The clam chowder was thick n’ creamy n’ delicious.

The fish n’ chips lunch platter looked great and was great – the second time around..
When it was actually served hot..
(This dining experience will be saved for another day when I feel like raggin’ on why I don’t tip shitty service.)
Then we went and got mani’s.
I chose purple for all things bright n’ cheery n’ spring-ish.
(So weird taking pics of your own hand..)
The rest of the day was all about shopping!
My favorite find of the day was this super cute, super fabulous, super shiny Jessica Simpson handbag that I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I made the two little zippy pouches down in front and apparently channeled my inner 5 year old while making the one on the left. It’s a fun lit’l kite n’ sunshine applique that I created all on my own, no pattern, all free hand drawing.
– Patting self on back… – I love it because it reminds me of flying kites as a kid in the whipping Michigan winds, and that makes me smile.
Side note: Here’s a better pic of the handbag. It’s actually pink, not peach and I love how it shines. (Better lighting and no flash.)
I also scored some more material and yarn to add to my stash.
Can’t wait to get busy with this!
I worked on a quilt for the Humane Society and used one of the blocks that I screwed up on to make a mug rug.
mug rug And with the Boise Library having a HUGE book sale next week I decided to try one of those “turn a t-shirt into a tote” Pinterest posts. So I did and it works. I made this cute lit’l tote to haul some of the books I’ll be purchasing because yep, I’m a crazy book hoarder bitch.
book bagAnd my current WIP’s (works in progress) are…
A terrycloth beach cover up for my grand-daughter.

Fleece socks, just cuz’ my feet are almost always cold.

And the never-ending “ugly ass” crocheted afghan. I started this to use up all of the ugly yarn people would give me. Seriously. They’d hand me bags full of yarn and I’d look at it and think, “What the fuck were you making with these hideous colors??” And then I’d smile and say thank you and add another row or five to my “ugly ass” afghan. Now I seek out the ugly yarn because, well, the “ugly ass” afghan has sort of taken on an identity all it’s own and I’m hoping in the end, it’ll be like one of those stray pups you find, that are so ugly they’re cute? Yeah, I’m hoping that’s the outcome of the “ugly ass” afghan. Either way, it’ll be warm and big enough to snuggle in. That’s all I need.
Today, I feel a bit more human. The aches are still there and the stuffy/runny nose is never ending but no cough and no projectile vomiting, which is always a bonus.
This is SOOOOO me!!

Happy Wednesday folks. Be well.
