IT’S HEEEERRREEEE….

FIIIINNNNAAAALLLY!!!!
I thought this time of year would NEVER get here!!!
Nevermind that it’s going to be 95 degrees today. I will be celebrating this September 1st with a pumpkin spiced latte from one of our local baristas and it.will.be DIVINE!
I know. I know. You’re all thinking, “calm your tits, Mimi, we could have an Indian summer.” Agreed and that’s fine. Even I would enjoy said possible Indian summer but it still doesn’t negate the fact that September is the month fall officially begins and thereby it is officially pumpkin spice season!

So, please don’t piss in my…..
THAT’S RIGHT!
And let’s all embrace this pumpkiny, spicey, time of year!
So hey! Happy September!!!

Sorry. I couldn’t resist this hokey take on “Ice, Ice, Baby” by Vanilla Ice.
❤ On a serious note. My thoughts are with all of you in the wake of the hurricane and the recent shooting in Texas. Mother Nature and sadly, mankind, seem to be our greatest adversaries. ❤
Tomorrow is Labor Day in the U.S. and the end to our final long weekend of summer. I hope it’s been a weekend filled with fun in the sun, BBQs, and lots of great memories made with family and friends.

Anybody have any great summer recipes they’d like to share? Just because it’s September doesn’t mean we’re in a sudden deep freeze. Summer yumminess still applies!

Here’s one of my favorite summer salads.
‘CAULIFLOWER “POTATO” SALAD
This really is so delicious and I don’t miss the potatoes one bit!
Also. You really didn’t think you were gonna’ get outta’ this post without at least one pumpkiny spicey recipe, did you???
Here’s one I haven’t tried but I can’t wait to make!
‘IMPOSSIBLE PUMPKIN PIE CUPCAKES’
Okay. I really need to wind this up and get it posted before it gets much later. Currently, I am drinking coffee and I’m “in search of” a specific package of DMC floss that has obviously sprouted feet and walked the fuck right outta’ my tote of all things cross-stitchy.
So irritating when things aren’t where you thought you left them.
Getting old sucks.
Happy September, Happy Labor Day, Happy Monday and Happy Almost Fall!
Enjoy!!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

Be well.

SWEET SEPTEMBER, I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU

Not enough hours in the day to answer that one.
Let me just file the entire month of August in the MIA file of life.
I’ll explain in bits n’ pieces but not today.
Today is September and it’s a pretty special month for me.
My Virgo baby boy turns 25 on the 13th.
What the heck?? He’s half of 50!
Time just needs to slow it’s ass down!
It’s not a race. It’s life and I prefer it in slow mo!
Just a few things about Virgos.
This one suits my boy to a T.
In Chinese astrology, my boy is a rooster.
I’m a rabbit and we get along just fine.
I think the Chinese need to stick to egg rolls.
And in the Celtic zodiac, you get a birthday tree and an animal.
AND… Here are the birthstone and the birth flower.
So many birthday signs!
All of these wonderful traits are my boy and if there’s anything not so wonderful about him I surely do not know.
September is also Lymphoma awareness month.
Found at stage 4, I beat it at stage 4.
Miracles happen or curses depending on who you ask about me.
September is also International Sewing Month.
My first project of September? Kiddie bowl cozies for a lit’l guy back in Michigan.
I hope he likes them.
I probably shouldn’t have used an orange bowl with these.
This pic is a little blinding.
I hope you’re all enjoying this long Labor Day weekend and if you are working it, thank you.
It’s been a little hectic around here so I’m going to head out to a bbq, relax, catch up with some old friends who just moved into their new home and enjoy a few cocktails.

I’m going to try and schedule these posts and see how that works out. I think I can get them to post on all of my social networks from HootSuite. We’ll see.

Okay. I’m out. Enjoy the day and I’ll visit when I get back.
