TANGERINE TREES MARMALADE SKIES

My weekend in a nutshell. Pride Weekend –
I was late to my “mom Pride hug” early meet-up but it was okay.
Moms and dads were giving hugs all over the place so you could join in anywhere.
It was very cool.
The whole parade was cool and the show of unity was super cool.

What wasn’t cool but pretty much expected?
1.) Parking.
2.) Lots of walking.
3.) Thousands of people.
4.) THE HEAT.
5.) Sweaty hugs. – Still wonderful tho.

If you haven’t gone to a ‘Pride Parade’ you should go at least once in your life.
You’ll have some fun and the LGBT Community reealllly appreciates and needs the support!
Bonus? You’ll walk away with some warm fuzzies just for being a kind human being.
Omgosh. So, somewhere along the past week or so, my sleeping pattern got reversed and now I find myself up nearly all night!
I couldn’t figure it out. I wasn’t drinking coffee all night but I might as well have been!

I’ve been trying to avoid nap taking during the day to get back on course but I failed miserably today and I ended up falling asleep reading and waking up feeling like I’d been drugged. You know those kind of sleeps. The Wizard Of Oz poppy field sleeps!
My pup is having them too! All she’s been doing is sleeping!
Then I had my “aha” moment…
The full moon!
Do any of you experience the chaos of the full moon or are you not a believer in such things.
According to this article at accuweather.com, the moon does, in fact, affect us and our pets AND the sea creatures!
I’ve still got my fake cold going on that I had initially blamed on my AC.
Yeah… According to my dr. I have allergies.
Whatever. Still feels like a cold!
Okay. I need to know.
How was your weekend?
For all you dads out there. I hope your day was absolutely amaze balls!
Happy Father’s Day belated.

What’s happening with your week?
How was your Monday?
What’s happening today?

For me, I know I have TONS of reading to catch up on with all of you so that will be a couple of hours of my day – at least. Then it’s all about laundry, housework and errands.

When I get a free moment I’ll be working on gifts and catching up on my GoodReads reading.

RANDOMNESS OF ME

 

Seriously.
RANDOM THINGS I’VE LEARNED –
***My dog MUST sniff every square inch of grass and run back n’ forth across it about a gazillion times – not an exaggeration – before she finds “her” spot to pee.

***No matter how many times a person bumps into you or slams their cart into your cart while you’re shopping or walks directly between you and a friend having a conversation, that rude ass idiot will NEVER say those two magical little words… EXCUSE ME!
And people wonder why I turn into Wayne fucking Gretzky when I’m out shopping. Because people are idiots.

***We have the nicest mailman on the planet who knows he could be a serial killer. He always brings our packages to the door along with any other mail we have instead of putting one of those “go pick your shit up yourself at the main post office inconveniently located downtown with lines a mile long” pink note cards.

***People – two young girls – will knock on your door, apologize for dropping by unannounced and for not knowing you just to ask you if you speak a foreign language and/or do you know anyone who does? No church pamphlets, no end of the world chats and most disappointingly, NO GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!

***Not everybody has cabbage with their corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day. Shocker, some people don’t even celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! No corned beef, no cabbage, no green beer, no wearing green. Why? Because those people can eat whatever the hell they want on any day that they want and the same goes for their beer drinking and ya’ know what else? Those people don’t give a shit if you pinch them for not wearing green because chances are they’ll punch you in the face no matter what color you’re wearing.
Those people may or may not be Italians.
I may or may not be Italian. Busy day today and a beautiful day at that. I hope your week has started out on the “right foot” or the left one I guess. Whichever is your “best foot forward” I suppose. Can you tell I’m tired? Just rambling on and on. Seriously my eyes feel like lead, maybe, I really don’t know what lead feels like. What I do know is that I am one tired mofo and I really need to “hit the hay!” Before one more dorky cliche comes flying out of my mouth.
Good night. Good morning. Happy Tuesday!
MIMI’S QUOTE OF THE DAY –

MIDNIGHT MOCHA #002

Yep. It’s midnight and I’m up for the day. Seriously. Not even kidding.
I got too comfortable too early in the evening. – Damn you ‘Grissom!’ –
And so here I am. WIDE awake, enjoying my midnight mocha and throwing out random shit on my blog.Do any of you have the Flipboard app on your phones? I’m absolutely addicted. I like having the news and topics that interest me right at my fingertips with hardly any ads and crap in between. I learn something every time I “flip” through it.
**FLIPBOARD NUGGETS**
Did you know that Kenya has a population of 45 million and only 23% of that population has access to electricity? How crazy is that?? I only know this because I was reading the story about a monkey in Kenya falling onto a transformer and causing a blackout for the entire country!
You can read about it here.

New research. A lit’l bit scary.. Brain to brain communication. I won’t give the long drawn out explanation. You can read that here but seriously. Two scientists in two different rooms sitting in front of video games. One of the scientist’s “thinking” the other scientist into to playing the game. Like getting him to move his fingers around the controller. No joke. Read the article.

People with sleep disorders tend to have impaired memory functions.
Wait, what?In other news. I’ll be up sewing tonight. Shocking, I know. I have a special order stuffed animal and my daughter asked for some pants and skirts. The stuffed animal should take no time at all and I’m hoping to knock out 3 pairs of pants for my daughter and a couple of dresses for my grand-Princess while I’m at. After that, I’ll be continuing on with stocking my inventory for the fall sales.

I have absolutely no errands to run tomorrow/today, so I expect plenty of productivity.Speaking of productivity. I was slated to be finished with my crochet/fleece doggie blanket on the 7th. That didn’t happen. Too many, “I’ll be there, I might be there, I’m on my way, oh sorry” moments. So irritating.I need to update my bujo to reflect my delays and new completion dates.We’ve still got a heat wave going on and it’s going to be even hotter today than it was yesterday. Back east the temps dropped and it was cool enough to wear a hoodie.
So weird.
To all of my friends down in “God’s waiting room,” a.k.a., Florida. Batten down the hatches, move to higher ground and be safe! Can’t believe it’s hurricane season already. It’s fire season for us. We’ve had a lot of lightning and rolling thunder with no rain. That’s never a good thing.Okay. I’m off to sew. I may or may not be back later today with some finished stuff. We’ll see how wide awake I am in a few hours.
What’s on tap for your day? Do any of you have trouble sleeping or short sleep patterns? My lit’l sis requires 8 hours of sleep. Do any of you? Do you ever get it?
Sleep has never been my thing so I’m really interested in how so many people can lie horizontally for 6-8 hours a night doing absolutely nothing… To me, it’s mind boggling.
