THANKFUL THURSDAY

In the words of Elton John…

What did I miss??
Is everybody still blogging?


Hey, guess what? It’s September 1st and a Thankful Thursday post!

I am so, so thankful September has finally arrived! It’s time to give this scorched flesh earth some much needed color AND a cool down!
Holy hell!

After a busy summer – volunteering, weddings, grad parties… – I am thankful for a slow down.

I am super thankful for all of the love.

I’m thankful for my friend teaching me about freeze-dried salt water taffy! I’d never even heard of it! Turns out you can freeze dry just about anything. Who knew?
Have any of you ever had freeze-dried candy??
I can’t be the last person on planet earth to hear of this.



Yes, bye, bye! Be gone with your triple-digit heat and your fucking flooding! Our planet needs a chance to heal. 

I hope all of you are staying cool and/or flood free. I don’t know how people in the UK manage without AC. We have our AC and fans going non-stop! It’s a fucking wind tunnel in here and there may be some dried-out eyes, noses, and throats but so far nobody has died of heat stroke! My kids are constantly telling me, “Mom, relax. You’re not dying.”  No, I’m not but I could!
They’re mean to me.

I know, I’m a whiner but heat is not my vibe and this has been the hottest summer in Idaho since they started keeping records! 


I am so ready for this…


And then this… I’m super excited for this!


YOUR TURN!!
What are you thankful for?
What has your summer looked like?
How are you guys beating the heat?? 
Are you looking forward to fall and winter??
You know I want to hear all about it!
Comment luv, please!


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Yesssss! I’m serious. If you don’t want to stress over holiday baking, ya’ gotta’ start early!

Happy September everyone!

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!

SIDE NOTE – My Thankful Thursday today is that modern medicine is an amazing thing. My son has issues with abrasions on his corneas.

He’s been to the optometrist and the ophthalmologist. He’s had prescription eye drops, anti-biotics, visual bandaging via a contact lens, and far too many scrapings of his corneas and now the doctors have reached another level of treatment.
Drum roll, please…

Serum tears. They’re making eye drops from my son’s blood!
How crazy is that??? Maybe it’s just crazy to me because I’d never heard of it but holy modern medicine Batman!

I don’t know how it all works but the eyedrops made from your own blood has healing properties specific to you and you’ll heal much faster.
I know. It’s nuts. It’s also amazing and I truly am thankful.
