I MEANT TO DO THAT

This is my vibe today and this whole day is going to be “I meant to do that.” Except for the dream that jolted me out of bed an hour earlier than usual this morning. That I didn’t mean to do.

I dreamt I was having sex with this really hot guy I went to high school with – FYI, he’s still hot but that’s beside the point. – It was so unsettling and irritating. First, because I woke up an hour early. – I thought about calling him and waking him up early but he’s in Michigan so he was already awake and at work. – Second, because I could’ve had sex with him in high school if I wanted to and I didn’t then so why would I have sex with him now?

It’s going to take me all day to shake that feeling of my space being invaded even if it was only a dream. I hate dreams like that. They make absolutely no sense. I didn’t watch or eat or have a conversation, anything at all, that would’ve caused me to have that dream. So weird.

Also weird, every morning I ask Alexa to play me a song to start my day with. What does she play?
It’s like Alexa and Frank are both telling me, “it was a dream. Suck it up.”


Now I feel like I need to explain who Alexa is. Hopefully, these photos will help. You can do so much with it.
#1 – What it looks like, the name, blah, blah. 
#2. – You can load pics on it and it’s a continuous loop of whoever/whatever you want it to be.
#3 – You can say, “Alexa show me the recipe for…” 
#4 – You can have Alexa play any podcast you want to listen to.

I always check my news, weather, and traffic in the morning. 
You can watch movies and tv shows.
You can get on YouTube. It has total internet access.
I love it because it’s just so handy! Like the other day I wanted to know how many tablespoons were in 1.5 ounces dry. I asked Alexa and Alexa knew.
– 3 tablespoons. 1 tablespoon = 1/2 an ounce. –
You can ask Alexa anything except to say swear words. She can’t say those but you all know I had to try because that’s just me.

Anyway, so that’s Alexa for those of you who didn’t know and she comes in many shapes and sizes with and without photo options.


First and foremost, getting some of this that Joe (and Mrs. C)
over at ‘The Cranky Old Man‘ turned me onto. Thanks again, Joe!
THEN, I’m going to get my organizing done! I really have to make room for the new Christmas stuff and I’m also getting myself organized to start selling some of the things I make/create. I don’t know whether I’ll do that on Etsy or Facebook or wherever but it’s on my list to do but first, organization!

I know a few of you out there sell your creations as well. What platform works best for you?

Okay, I’m jumping off of here. Have a great Monday and be safe!
Oh, and while I’m thinking about it…
Raise your hand if you’re planning on getting the Covid vaccine.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

#23 – KLEPTO ON THE GO!

Happy July! Let the heatwaves begin!
 In my last post, I mentioned having new neighbors upstairs, next door and a few doors down.
Well, suddenly we have an issue. An issue we didn’t have with our old neighbors..
THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS
First up. I keep my blinds open all day because I choose not to live like a vampire. The day the new neighbors moved in was no different. I’m sitting there crocheting and watching my British shows and out of the corner of my eye, I see this empty cardboard box go flying thru the air from the new neighbor’s direction.

In my mind I’m thinking, I know they’re not just gonna’ let that shit go flyin’ around and not pick it up.  – They didn’t.
A kid I’d never seen before went running after it and started kicking it around.
Cool. Whatever. Moving is boring for kids. I get it.

Then I look up and this same kid is walking back and forth in my part of the backyard looking in my windows! What the hell?? Can I just tell you? It’s a little more than annoying to have some weirdo kid staring at you all day. I so wish I had been naked. That lit’l peeping Tom would’ve needed eye bleach for a year!

Fortunately, when I got up to go outside he scattered and I haven’t seen – key word being seen – him since. Clearly, he’s doing his thievery at night or when we’re not home. And honestly, it’s not so much that he’s taking shit off of my patio as much as it is that he’s coming onto my patio.
Where I come from that’s a good way to get shot.

I would mention this to his parents but they don’t speak English. They’re refugees from I don’t know where but they’re very colorfully wrapped from head to toe.
Did I mention that they don’t speak English?

To date, their klepto kid has a total of 4 lighters and one ink pen left there on purpose to see if he’d take that too. He did.
Can’t wait to see what he does with them and when.
On the plus side, they don’t have a dog.
That would be the other neighbors that moved in..
In other news – I’d just like to be like everyone else and whine about the heat.
It’s flippin’ hot!
Again, this weekend. Let’s be kind to our animals and veterans alike.

I hope all of you have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend.
Happy July and stay cool my friends!
