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!

*****

*****Triple-digit heat!
WELCOME AUTUMN!!!!

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.

– FRIDAY –
25.) A simple pleasure

It’s been a week to be sure… But here we are.
We all made it and that’s a big deal! Hugs all around!
Let’s do the same thing this coming week!


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

AND WHILE WE’RE AT IT… Brain Dump

I get it. Grocery shopping is one of those necessary evils in life.
I don’t have to like it and surprise! – I don’t.
So many people don’t have their shit together at the grocery store and it’s super annoying to those of us that do.

Top of the list?
The “no list” shoppers!
They bob about aimlessly like a grocery store zombie with ZERO in their cart scanning every single shelf up n’ down every single aisle.

And speaking of aisles…
There should be a GIANT sign that reads…
People with lists.
People like me would like to get their fucking shopping done and get home.
Is it really too much to ask?
And while we’re at it…
I saw these in the cracker/cookie aisle.
Entertainment Crackers… Seriously?
There is nothing entertaining about “Entertainment Crackers” so let’s just leave those off of the holiday entertaining list.
They’re like little discs of concrete that people spread shit on and call it an
appetizer. They’re disgusting AND one bite – if you can bite it – and it’s a mess.
I don’t like messy foods especially at a party or get together.

And speaking of messy foods.
Here’s another do not add it to your entertaining list.
GIANT strawberries with that hard ass waxy chocolate shit on them!
Seriously.
Have you ever just watched people try to bite into those things???
You’d have to have a flip-top head like a fucking Pez dispenser!
Just.Say.NO!!!

Also… To the salad bringers.
NO PICKLE BUTTS EVAH!!!
I come across these in salads ALL.THE.TIME!!
No pickle butts people!
That’s my photo. See. I cut the pickle butts off then I do this really crazy thing…
I throw them the fuck away. Why??? Because they’re pickle butts.
IN OTHER NEWS –
I’ve been battling computer issues for most of the day. Specifically, my printer. It’s not even a year old. The ink is new, I ran all of the tests, removed and reinstalled and it still won’t print in black. I had this problem once before and I can’t remember what the fix was.
Whatevs… I’ll try again tomorrow.
Cleaning up my craft area today and I realize I have at least 4 glue guns and a MILLION glue sticks!
Also, a BAZILLION buttons!!!
It’s confirmed. Yes, I do have S.T.A.B.L.E Syndrome.
Altho truth be told. I’d much rather have Stabler syndrome…
Totally miss this guy.
Holy crap what a nonsensical brain dump. All my complaining about shit I almost forgot it’s ‘Thankful Thursday.’
3 things I’m thankful for today.
– This blog so I can bitch n’ moan.
– Buttons because ya’ never know when you might need one or a bazillion
– Water because it’s good to be hydrated!
I hope you’re all having a great day. One more day til the weekend!
I’ll be spending my weekend sewing. At least that’s my plan but plans are always subject to change.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.

THANKFUL THIRSTY THRUSTY THURSDAY!

It’s ‘Thankful Thursday’ and also ‘Thirsty Thursday.’
Coincidence? I think not.
PSSST: I have no idea why “thrusty” is in the title of this post.
QUESTION: Is it too early to be partaking in ‘Thirsty Thursday?’
Asking for a friend….

Today I am thankful for air conditioning.
And vodka!
Yesterday was my vodka slushie day! Watermelon! My fave!
What a refreshing way to beat the heat!
It may be a vodka slushie day today as well…
It may have already started…
Sooooo, what are yous guys thankful for today and every day or just today???
What’s your favorite drink on tap for “Thirsty Thursday?”

Is it hot where you are??? I’m not complaining. I’m so happy to see the sun and be out of that 5th season of,
“time to find fucking Noah…”

Again, the weekend is upon us.
Who’s got plans?
I will be downtown at the Pride parade giving out free mom hugs to the kids whose parents disowned them, kicked them out, etc., after they told them they were gay/lesbian/trans.
Fucking assholes. So much for unconditional love.
Two of the beautiful souls that are my “pride” and joy.
My son (right) and his partner. Wonderful, kind, loving, intelligent humans loving each other, loving life and lucky me, they love me too!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 11:14am
Temp – HOT!
Mood – Lazy… Hot days just zap me sometimes.
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Zero but it’s early, it’s hot and I may be running low on vodka.
Best thing – Life
Be well.
