MIDNIGHT AT THE OASIS… – #8

First of all, let me apologize for the earworm that got stuck in your head just from the title alone. I’m not talking about midnight at this oasis…
Buttttttt… Can I just say, I miss those clothes, that hair, and the music.

I’m talking about “Blake & Miranda’s Mountain Oasis.”
This is pretty much the winter months, give or take a few inches of snow.
This is the summer.
So. When I write that I’m heading to “Miranda’s” I’m sure you’ll all understand if it takes me a few days to come back. It’s so relaxing and when you walk in the door to “Blake n’ Miranda’s” home not only do you feel like family, you are family.

You may remember my post ‘Miranda Throws A Pleasure Party.’ It’s my most viewed post to date. If you haven’t read it, you should. That post will really give you a view of what lies at the foot of those beautiful mountains up there.
Well… pleasure parties, homeschooling, fantastic home cooking and running a ranch!

Speaking of homeschooling… Kudos to every homeschooling mom/dad on the planet! The school work has changed SOOOOO much it’s unreal. I look at the math and I’m like, nope, I’m out. Give me books, words and art and I’m in.
Side note: The 1st photo and the 6th may be the most accurate.

This is me if I were a homeschooler.Oh, and if you’re curious about “Blake’s” role at the “oasis” here’s a couple of pics of just one of the things he does.
See that road on the side of the mountain? Yeah. He keeps those clear…
Day and night…
And can you believe people still bitch if the roads aren’t smooth as glass?
Seriously…
Back in the city, I’m just hangin’ out doin’ what I do. We finally got some snow! About a half an inch. Woo hoo! Just enough to freeze at night and make the roads icy but hey, no complaints. Here’s our week ahead…
That’s just nuts! I wish all of our Januarys were like this!
Today looks like a great day to get some reading done.
I’m currently reading two books. Yep. I’m that kind of reader…
“Miranda” gave me ‘Gone Girl’ for Christmas. A real book, paperback and I checked out ‘The Giver’ from my local library via my phone using the Libby app. I’m determined to reach my reading goals this year on Goodreads!
So, what’s Wednesday looking like for all of you??? Almost to the weekend. Anybody have plans?? I have a dental appt. on Friday. Go me! I hate the dentist…
As always. Feel free to spill the beans in the comments below.

Also. The Goodreads link up there is to my Goodreads page so if any of you want to share some great books add me to your list. I’m always looking for the next great read.

Have a great rest of your week!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 5:47am
Temp – 26 degrees F/cloudy/it’s fucking dark still!
Mood – AWAKE!!!!
Bitch, bitch, bitch –This moron, John Engler. What a douche!
Michigan State University Interim President and former GOP Michigan governor John Engler is facing backlash for saying that “some Larry Nassar sexual assault victims are enjoying the attention.”
Best thing – It’s early so I’m going with my bottomless coffee cup!
Be well.
