MOODY MONDAY

Frosty rooftops, snowy ground, and the sun trying to poke thru.


Silence and it’s wonderful.


2022 is a healthy year for all of us. Physically, mentally and spiritually.


This headline is a big fat lie!
Michelle Kwan Gave Birth To Her First Baby & We’re Obsessed With Her Name
Seriously? Okay, just so you don’t have to actually click on the link, the baby’s name is Kalista Belle.
—> WOW MICHELLE! Really??? That’s so original! I’m so fucking obsessed! <— <Insert eye roll here.>


It’s actually the audiobook and so far it’s really good.
Q & A – Do you think listening to a book counts as reading one?
I struggled with this for a long time. I even judged others – I know! Not Mimi, right??? – I totally doubted their reading comprehension and mentally lowered their IQ’s
not really, okay maybe based solely on the fact that they chose to listen instead of picking up a real book and reading it the old-fashioned way. Mimi, you’re such a bitch.

—> I was wrong of course. <—
(Take a screenshot, you won’t see that admission often.)

And now I really like listening to audiobooks. Not all the time because I still prefer a book in my hand but there is a time and place for audiobooks.
What say ye’??????
Is listening to a book the same as physically holding and reading one?


I did watch the movie The Tender Bar on Amazon. (Subscription)
I reeeaalllly liked it and I do recommend it. It’s definitely a feel-good movie and the cast and characters are great. I have to say, the actors brought their A-game to this movie.


I watched season 1 of Under The Vines on AcornTV. (Subscription)
It’s a really cute show and I can’t wait to see season 2.


I’m currently watching My Life Is Murder, also on AcornTV. I’ve just started season 2 of this show.
It stars Lucy Lawless a.k.a Xena: Warrior Princess. If you’re old enough, you may remember her like this.
Yeah, she doesn’t look much like that anymore but I think she’s still just as beautiful.

I recommend watching this show too. Nothing intense. No blood and gore. More like the old-fashioned Columbo Mysteries.


A warm n’ cozy gray n’ pink long flannel nightgown which I’ll remove before going to bed because my pajamas and sheets fight in the night and I don’t like being strangled.
Not that you asked…


This beautiful teacup and saucer that I got from my daughter-in-law and the wonderful tea that I got from my other daughter-in-law.
The tea is so yummy and with the teacup set, it just makes my tea time very special and I love it. Soooo relaxing.


Space for all things I will be creating! Ha!


Whew! Okay, late post. Long post! Criminey! It’s like I think all you have to do all day/night is read my drivel! Or skim my drivel! Whichever it is, I’m just happy you’re here!

My whole weekend was all about stuff – organizing it, sorting it, tossing it, or putting it in the Good Will box! My goal is by the end of January to have gotten my shit in order so I can get on with my next goal which is creating more stuff to sort thru next year. I know. Genius!

How was your weekend? Anything thrilling and spine-chilling happening?? Altho for some of you, chilled spines is exactly what you’re getting with that artic air back east!
Bbbrrr. Wrap yourself in a blanket but bare your soul in the comments! I wanna’ know what’s happenin’! I’m nosey like that. You all know.


MIMI’S QUOTE OF THE DAY –


Be kind ~ Be thankful ~ Be loving ~ Be you!

❤ mimi ❤

THANKFUL THURSDAY – COPY THAT

That’s the phrase that was stuck in my head this morning when I woke up. Copy that.
I didn’t have any weird vibe or negative vibe so I’m guessing everything in my dream was fine, whatever that dream was. Dreams are so weird. Sometimes there’s meaning to them. Sometimes you can connect the dream with things that happened throughout the day or something you watched. Sometimes they mean absolutely zero. I’m pretty sure this was that.


I also woke up to some wonderful rain and much lower temps that aren’t supposed to climb out of the 60’s today which I am totally loving. What I’m not loving? Waking up to these pain-in-the-ass allergies.  Omgosh. I feel like I just want to cut a jack-o-lantern triangle right at the bridge of my nose just so I can breathe!
Yeah. Sorta’ like that.

Currently, the girls and I are enjoying some loose leaf rooibos tea, with a bit of ginger, lemon balm, cinnamon, calendula petals, and all kinds of good stuff to help with my allergies. So far so great.

I’m also taking allergy meds. Supposedly non-drowsy allergy meds but I think that’s a big fat lie because they make me soooo tired.
Right!


If I can get my allergies under control I’m going to make some garlic hummus today.
And just in case you’re curious…
That’s a 5lb bag of garbanzo beans.
I can’t wait to get started!


THANKFUL THURSDAY
1.) Today I am thankful for tea and allergy meds.
2.) I’m thankful for the much-needed rain.
3.) I’m thankful for a cozy bed to fall back into until the allergy meds work.


What’s on tap for all of you this Thursday?
How’s your day going so far? (It’s 6:43am here)
What are you thankful for today?
I hope you all have a wonderfully amazing day or a wonderfully chill day.
Whichever, whatever, just enjoy!
