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 MORNING COFFEE WITH MIMI – Currently…

CURRENTLY…
I feel like I haven’t even been to bed!

I’m thinking about how much I love my pup but I wish she wouldn’t behave like a cat! Sleep all day. Up all night. Which means I’m up all night because she doesn’t jump down from the bed or up onto it.
It’s my own fault. She’s 14 and I worry about her joints and bones. I just really want to baby her for however much longer we are blessed to have her.
In the meantime, I bitch because ya’ know, that’s what I do.

We’ve got a rainy week ahead with temps in the 40’s. I’ll take it. It’s too late in the game for snow now. The Snow Miser had his chance.
Nope. Not this year you weren’t. No white Christmas for us. Loser…

I started intermittent fasting. I’ll let ya’ know how that goes. You have an 8-hour window to eat and then 16 hours of fasting. It’s supposed to be really healthy for you. You can read about it here.

Seriously wish I could go back to bed but I can’t.

Thinking about heading outside as soon as it gets daylight. I need to wake up!

Trying to ignore the sirens so early today… Hoping everyone is okay.

On my hook. A Christmas present. A super-soft blanket. I work on it while binge-watching Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime but since there’s only 2 seasons available right now and I’m on season 2 I may have to find another show to binge on.
On my loom is a simple winter hat for next year.
Under my needle is a Halloween project.
Listening to Eminem’s new album, Music To Be Murdered By. Specifically, the song Godzilla that beats his supersonic rap speed record on an older song, Rap God.

Eminem knocks out 229 words (containing 339 syllables) in 30 seconds on the song – “Godzilla”. He raps 11.3 syllables per second. He out-performs ‘Majesty’ and “Rap God” on this verse in rapping speed by 1.0 and 1.7 syllables per second respectively. That’s a new world record!

Okay. That’s a rap god for me!

What are all of you up to on this fine Tuesday morning?
Whatever you do, wherever you go, enjoy!
I’m scoopin’ up my pup and heading outside!
