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.
Share in the comments below.


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.”


 

SWEET STREAMS ARE MADE OF THESE

You stream, I stream, we all stream for…..!!!

Raise your hand if you watch/stream any of these channels.
I am guilty of all 5 and I even pay extra to have no commercials.
FYI – Waaay cheaper than having cable altho I do have a small antenna hooked up to my tv for local channels.

I will confess that the only reason I got HBO Now was for Game of Thrones but now that that’s heartbreakingly over I’m considering dropping that one. I haven’t found anything else on HBO that I can’t live without.

If any of you have an HBO show that is a must see drop it in the comments and I’ll check it out.
I’m currently into a show on Amazon called, ‘Bosch.’
Netflix is my personal favorite because it saves some great shows!
Like this one that everybody laughs at me for watching but I love it and I wish there were more episodes in the works!
And, of course, this one… Crossing my fingers, eyes, and toes for a Season 5!!
Hulu is great for catching up on episodes of weekly shows on tv that you may have missed.
I think this is a great show. It’s on Fox.
This pretty much covers YouTube for me.
Okay. Your turn. Tell me what you’re streaming and if you’re not streaming what the hell are you watching on your 500 channel 499 of them sports cable package??
I hope you’re all having a safe Memorial Day and saying a big thank you to those who died allowing us the freedom to have our bbq’s and take that extra day off of work.

Did anyone have cookouts this weekend or go to any?
What was on the menu??

It has been a tough week for me as it is my sister’s first birthday – May 26 – since she died in October of stomach cancer. I just keep thinking wishing that she should still be here…
IN OTHER NEWS –
Looks to be a beautiful day today, lots of sunshine and I hope I didn’t just jinx myself into another rainy afternoon because I’d really like to just kick back on the back patio with a good book and some good wine!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 18:51am
Temp – 50 degrees F/High today, 71 with THUNDERSTORMS!
Mood – Sad
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Idiot neighbors. – An upcoming post.
Best thing – Sunshine for the moment.
Be well.

FREE TRIAL MONTH

Seems I had a bit of a crash n’ burn with the month of January. I’ll try to do better this month.
Apparently by starting 4 days into the month.
#DoOver
QUESTIONS –
***Did any of you get the chance to see the super blue blood moon?
– I missed it. The clouds were all over the place down here in the valley and it was way too early in the morning to go trekking up the mountains.

***What about Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of 6 more weeks of winter? True or false? Yay or nay?
If that proves to be true it won’t bother me in the least! We’ve had record breaking temps into the 60’s and that is a beautiful thing!

***Are you watching the Super Bowl today and if so, who are you rooting for? The Patriots or the Eagles?
– I know nothing of the Eagles but I’m pulling for them and ONLY because Tom Brady irritates me. The only time I root for the Patriots is when they’re playing the Seahawks and that’s only because EVERYONE out here is Seahawk crazy and they shove it down your throat with a pitchfork. Seriously.
Oh, and PS, I won’t be watching the Super Bowl. I’ll be Netflixing The Godfather trilogy.

***If you are watching and even if you’re not I suppose, what’s your favorite Super Bowl food?
– I like a good batch of chili and some pulled pork sandwiches and random chips n’ dips.
IN THE CRAFTING CORNER –
Too many irons in the fire! Crocheting, sewing, painting, Cricut. One day I’ll get around to taking pics and actually posting them here!

STREAMING –
I’ve been cheating on Netflix with Hulu and just finished watching a great show, now canceled, of course, called Revenge.
It – was – amazing! And now I want to be Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke because she is badass.

I’m not streaming anything else at the moment. I usually only stream when I’m crocheting, it’s a mindless craft for me so I can watch while I crochet. Right now I’m painting and cutting with my Cricut. This requires my attention so it’ll be Dr. G Medical Examiner streaming in the background. You don’t really have to watch Dr. G to know what’s going on. You can listen. She explains things pretty thoroughly.
ON THE HOME FRONT –
First and foremost, NO FLU! Not here, not with any of my kids or any of my grandchildren and I am SO incredibly thankful for that! I hope the same holds true for all of you! This flu that is going around is no joke! If you haven’t done so already, please, GET YOUR FLU SHOT!

However, despite not having the flu I am sickened. Sickened that one of our local priests – not mine – was arrested and charged with 10 counts of felony sexual exploitation and 1 count of a controlled substance. It’s beyond disturbing to me on so many, many levels.

Also disturbing? The USA Gymnastic sexual abuse cases. What the hell is wrong with people?? Is there no safe place for our children and grandchildren?? It’s so infuriating and kudos to the dad that went after that piece of shit team doctor, Nassar. The deputies should’ve moved a little bit slower and let that dad get in at least one good fist to that scumbag’s head! As my kids posted on Facebook, “Mom, this would’ve totally been you.” Yes.. Yes it would have.

I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time cleaning up my computer. Downloading and saving what needs to be downloaded and saved because as much as I hate to see my lit’l all in one Dell – that my kids hate – go, I think she’s on her last leg after nearly 5 years. Now the only decision to be made is laptop or desktop…
Going to make my rounds now. Reading, commenting, sharing, posting. I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday today and if you’re rooting for a Super Bowl team, I hope they win!
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY –

#18 – PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE

Seriously… Omg… I can’t stand repair work being done around me and I feel like such a bitch about it but honestly, it just drives me bonkers. Especially since the work is being done in two of the rooms we frequent the most. – Thank the gods that be that we’re having no issues in our bathroom!

Plus, I feel like I’m being held hostage by the Gomer waiting on when/if he chooses to show up. He never shows when he says he will and we’ve had some beautiful days that I would’ve much rather been on the trails in the sunshine than waiting on that jughead.

And I know that I don’t have to be home for them to come in but I’d rather be, ya’ know? I mean, I don’t know this guy. He could be one of those weirdo panty sniffer idiots I see on all of my creepy crime shows. Who knows?? Plus, just the idea of a stranger in my home and I’m not here. Yeah, no. Call me paranoid but no. Not happening.
My future daughter-in-law tho, finding the positive in everything that happens, did take advantage of this annoying situation..She decided to dry her leggings collection… And trust me. She has waaaay more than this and more coming in the mail!
So. There’s a silver lining. Killing two birds with one stone, as it were.
HOME REPAIR UPDATE –
The fan is gone AND the Gomer got fired! Not because of us but apparently, his work, in general, was a bit shoddy. – Ya’ think???
We have a new maintenance guy and he appears to be on the ball and he’s certainly 100% more professional than the Gomer. We still have holes in the dining room and kitchen and the one in the dining room is going to get a whole lot bigger before all is said and done. I don’t even care. I just want it finished!
We’ve had some great weather but that took quite a turn. Cooler temps with rain/hail/snow mix but that’s okay because I’ve got plenty of projects to keep me busy indoors!
More about those later..
Passing along a “must see” show. If you have Hulu, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is excellent.
It’s also a book by Margaret Atwood but I haven’t read it – yet.
Have any of you read the book or are you watching the show? It’s so creepily fascinating.
I am determined to get this posted today! I hope you’re all having a fabulous week. I’m coming around to catch up on everybody now and hopefully, there will be enough hours at the end of my day to write a post for tomorrow!
