2020 – IT JUST KEEPS GOING AND GOING…

THURSDAY – OCTOBER 8
***** Ten Things Of Thankful
It’s always so difficult to just pick 10 but here goes…
First, I have to say, I am always and forever will be thankful for my God, my kiddos and grands, and my family and friends so they make the list every day.

Ten things I’m thankful for specific to this day are…
1.) My crockpot. Thank you, Irving Nachumsohn.
If you click on Irving’s name it will take you to a page aaallll about him and his awesome invention.
(Omg. I wonder if Paul over at Redneck Latte Ravings just had a power surge. I feel like I just took a page from his blog!)

2.) Fresh, clean water anytime I want it or need it.

3.) Yarn, because, well… Yarn.

4.) My eyesight for watching how-to videos on YouTube and reading.

5.) Off buttons. I appreciate them so much, especially now.

6.) I’m thankful that I live in America. As crazy as it is right now it’s still the greatest country in the world.

7.) Amazon. – Dear sweet Amazon, it’s like Christmas every day with you!

8.) Blogging because I’ve met the coolest people here.

9.) Chili and cornbread cuz’ that’s what we had for dinner tonight and it was delicious!

10.) I’m thankful for the chill in the house when I get up in the morning. In the middle of the night when I have to pee? Not so much.


FRIDAY – OCTOBER 9
***** Curious
If people are going to be on tv giving interviews with face masks on why can’t they find one that fits? So many of them talk, talk, talk, and the mask slides further and further down their face.

Altho, maybe not this one…
Or this one…
I hope those are clean, fellas…


SATURDAY – OCTOBER 10
***** Great find.
Butter soft leggings. Perfect fit and 2 pairs for only $19 and free shipping on Amazon.
**They come in long style too not just the capris shown.

Gnpolo Women’s BlackHigh Waisted Leggings Pack
Soft Slim Tummy Control Trousers Yoga Pants

SUNDAY – OCTOBER 11
***** Why do vitamins have to be the size of submarines?!


MONDAY – OCTOBER 12
***** Happy Columbus, Indigenous People, or whoever the hell it was that discovered America, Day!!!!

TUESDAY – OCTOBER 13
*****
AMAZON DAYS!!!
So happy I was able to score a few Amazon deals and shorten my Christmas lists.


WEDNESDAY – OCTOBER 14
***** Wordless Wednesday


Here we are in the middle of October. I feel like it should be all about kids and costumes and trick or treating but the Coronavirus and politics are hanging in the air so thick. It’s so depressing…

I just heard on the news that the doctors are advising against big Thanksgiving dinners with extended family and friends.
That’s depressing too.
What next? They’re gonna’ tell us Santa isn’t real???

Just recently a family member was possibly exposed to Covid thru work. It’s not probable but it’s possible and just the thought of them getting it and passing it on to the rest of the family is frightening.

No word yet on canceling Halloween out here. What an adjustment school-aged children have had to endure. What an adjustment we’ve all had to endure.

Here’s to finding a safe and effective cure SOON.
Be safe. Be well. Be kind.


MIMI’S THOUGHT 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!
