MARCH – LION, OR LAMB?

Does anyone remember learning in school about the arrival of March?
We learned if March came in like a lamb it would go out like a lion, but if it came in like a lion it would go out like a lamb. According to our weatherman our March is coming in like a lamb with lots of sunshine and spring-like temps and I’m all about that!


Once again, I’ve been away. Once again, no motivation. I’m still feeling like I’ve got nutthin’.

But hey!!
I’m hoping to get some traveling in this year. I am missing my kiddo and grand-kiddos back east SOOOO much. Thank goodness for Facetime/Skype/Duo. All great apps to keep me seeing those beautiful faces and hearing those precious voices and tho it’s better than nothing it’s not enough! Now they need to invent an app that will allow me to reach thru the screen and get some hugs and kisses and go to band concerts, sporting events, and dance!!


I trust you’re all getting along well out in your corners of the world. 
Our first week of March is supposed to be filled with lots of sunshine and warmer temps. I’ll take it! Of course, there’s probably a couple of snowstorms coming in behind it but I don’t care. I just need a few days to feel the sunshine on my face and to hit those trails again! I’d love to see some flowers peeking out, but that’s probably too much to hope for.
Did you know that the flower for the month of March is the daffodil?

The flower of rebirth and new beginnings.
Do any of you have daffodils popping up? They’re usually the first flower I see around here, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them this early.

JUST A REMINDER – “A gift of daffodils is said to suggest good luck, however, if it is just a single bloom gifted this instead is supposed to foretell misfortune so take care when giving daffodils as gifts!”

One of those gifts where you have to choose to use your powers for good or evil.


I wish I had more exciting stuff to write about, but it’s just not happening in my corner of the world. We’ve had some crazy weather like most parts of the country and I am so looking forward to the warmer temps.

I have found some new shows to watch and if you have time you might want to schedule these in.

NETFLIX – 
Waiting on season 2 of this show and not very patiently. Of course, there are the books to read, but I don’t want to spoil alert my own self! I can hardly wait, but I will wait.

CBS – 
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this one because I didn’t think anyone could play Clarice other than Jodie Foster. I was wrong. This girl is a good choice. She’s definitely got that slight southern tone mastered. 

It’s a good show and I hope CBS doesn’t cancel it but if they do, there’s always Netflix, right? It can always be brought back to life there.

HGTV
I just love this little couple Ben and Erin Napier. They’re from Laurel, Miss. and they’re beautifying their little town one abandoned house at a time.

This is a fun show to watch. Nothing stressful, nothing scary, no edge-of-the-seat stuff just a fun show. If you’re not watching, I highly recommend that you do.

So, those are a few of the shows I’m watching these days, what about you? Do you have any faves you’d like to share and recommend? You know what to do, just drop ’em in the comments so we can all see what’s on your screens.


I’ve been early spring cleaning all things crafting/sewing/yarn and now I need to use them all up! I promised myself that I wouldn’t purchase any more craft stuff until I’ve made a dent in what I already have and I’m happy to say I’ve kept that promise!


I know it’s been a minute but I would love to hear what everyone has been up to and if you’d care to share that would be great.
I’ve missed you!!

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.

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.”
