OCTOBER ONE

What a great day!
It’s October AND it’s “Taco Tuesday!”

October for me means all of this… ❤
And lots of soups, stews, chili, anything and just about everything you can put in a crockpot!
Since it is “Taco Tuesday” and October AND chilly outside I thought I’d share a very October, “Taco Tuesday” chili recipe with all of you!

Taco chili is always a fall favorite at my house served up with a topping of sour cream and a big ‘ol piece of cornbread!
Do any of you make taco chili?
Do you take part in “Taco Tuesday?”
What’s your favorite taco meal?

I know. A ton of questions but… as always…
I’m a nosey bitch and all of you know that!
Aaannnd more questions!
So, what did everybody’s weekend look like?
Anybody in the path of all of that rain and snow?

My friends in Montana got walloped of course and Miranda was sitting in her hot tub this morning enjoying the snow falling on her up in our mountains.
Down here in the valley we had wonderful rainy days.
Oh. One more question. Is anybody watching the 31 Nights of Halloween?
Do you have a favorite movie you like to watch around Halloween?
Okay. That was two questions…
My favorite is…
I love, love, love this movie and honestly I watch it year-round but it is the movie that kicks off the Halloween season for me.

This movie comes in a close second…
Okay. It’s back to my creative bubble for me.
Happy October!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

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.

FRIDAY FOCUS

This was my favorite focus of the day.
RAIN! Beautiful wet leaves and the smell of autumn.
I had one of these the other night and I felt like a kid again trick or treating back in Michigan.
Every Halloween it rained. Every Thanksgiving the Lions played the Bears. Those two things a kid could count on.

I’m really digging this tea right now. If you haven’t tried it you should. It is delicious!
Day 2 of no coffee. A slight headache but I think I’ll live.

On the craft table tonight. I’m finally getting around to fixing my crestfallen $2 thrift store angel. I saw her a million years ago and I just couldn’t leave her trapped in that stuffy store. Not to mention, she’s crocheted and I know the time and work that went into making her.
Stay tuned for her big reveal.
It’s been a bit of a busy day thus the late post.
I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of a beautiful fall weekend.
Looks like rain all week for us and I am more than okay with that!

Who’s got plans this weekend? Mine are boring errands for most of the day and then playing the rest. Hopefully in the rain!

Whatever your plans, be safe and be well.
Happy Weekend!
MIMI’S MAGICK FOR THE DAY –
SIDE NOTE:
This is the second 8 I’ve drawn. 8’s are all about success.
My 4 children and 4 grandchildren = SUCCESS!
Of course, they do. I didn’t need a card to tell me that!

The apprentice card. This is a card of new paths to be taken and adventures to be had. It’s about learning, commitments, focus (Friday Focus) and boundaries. All of which are pulling me and have been pulling me.

It’s my “everything old is new again” moment in time. Finding my way back to me via new paths and new adventures.
Commitment to self. Learning of self. Focus of self and boundaries of self.
I’m okay with that and apparently, Spirit is too.
So mote it be.
What about you?
Are any of you feeling a commitment to self?
Is there a “pull” to spend some extra time with yourself,
focused only on yourself?
Leave your thoughts in the comments, please.
