2020 – ARE WE THERE YET?

Seriously? The weirder this year gets the more I just want it to be 2021 already.
This world has gone absolutely nutso. 
And yet… There’s a part of me that finds the whole idea of ringing in 2021 somewhat frightening.

It’s like waiting for the other shoe to drop only you don’t know if it’s really a shoe you just know that whatever it is, it’s going to fucking drop.

Fleeting thought – What’s Time Square going to look like this year?
What are all of the New Year celebrations around the globe going to look like??


THURSDAY – October 15
*****Thankful Thursday
1.) I’m thankful for my eyesight to see the beautiful colors of fall
2.) I’m thankful for snuggly hoodies for being outside walking in the wind watching the leaves fly.
3.) I’m thankful that we haven’t turned our heat on yet. It’s like a contest in our family. Who turns their heat on first.
4.) I’m thankful for pizza.
5.) I’m thankful for phone calls with my brother that always make me laugh so much AND we can discuss politics and still hang up the phone with “I love yous.”


FRIDAY – October 16
*****More birthdays…
Happy Birthday to my oldest grandson, Seth. 
He’s 14 today!
And to my mom who never could seem to remember Seth’s birthday even tho, he was born on her birthday.
I’m pretty sure she did it just to piss me off. It worked.
She would’ve been 91!
Our relationship wasn’t easy but I loved her very much…
Happy Birthday, mom!

Another virus-free week in the books for myself and those I hold near and dear.
I hope the same holds true for all of you.
My allergies are kicking up a bit but I’m good with that. It’s annoying and I feel like crap most of the time but as far as I know, at least for me, they’re not deadly.

Fall is here in full swing and the temps are dropping like a rock but still, we have yet to turn on our heat. It’s a small victory and a bit of a challenge throughout our family. Who can go the longest without turning the heat on.

I don’t know who started it or why, I’m sure it started out with someone calling someone else a pussy because they didn’t like the cold, which, being Michiganders is pretty much a sin. So, here we are, a family waiting to see who can freeze first!

How about where all of you are? Beautiful fall temps or temps dropping like a rock? OR… Who’s got snow??? I-CAN’T-WAIT!

Everyone, please, be safe when you’re out n’ about. They say this virus is getting worse. You know what to do. Keep yourselves safe and those around you.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

THANKFUL, THIRSTY, THINGS

TODAY I AM THANKFUL FOR…
1.) – Anyone who takes the time to read the words I write. Really. I appreciate you and I’m thankful for you.
2.) – I’m thankful that I finished one of my crocheted blankets.
3.) – I’m thankful that I had extra oil and coolant in the back of my vehicle today because I needed both!
THIRSTY –
I know that one of my favorite summer drinks definitely counts as a serving of fruit.

WATERMELON VODKA SLUSHIE
These are so delicious and refreshing.
You can find a fabulous recipe for them at ‘Just A Pinch.’
Personal note – I find that the alcohol measurements in most drink recipes, much like speed limits unless there’s a cop nearby, are merely suggestions.
THINGS –
Many, many things going on.
**Idaho passed a law that says you can get a $90 ticket for going too slow in the left lane.
Now if they’d pass one for people who don’t know how to use their fucking blinker!
**Still playing the “hurry up and wait game” with my sister’s drs.
**Not playing the “hurry up and wait game” with my own docs.
One appt. down, 5 more to go.
**Many, many projects to finish up. I’m currently crocheting and hand embroidering. I’ll post pics as I get the majority of “things” done.
**Just joined The Great American Read. It’s 100 of America’s most loved books AND it’s a show on PBS hosted by Meredith Viera.
I know I’m late to the game but I’m in and I’m not rushing. I’m reading the ones I can check out online from our local library first.
Currently, I’m reading ‘Anne of Green Gables’ and I had no idea there were so many chapters in this book! What the hell? And it’s sort of ridiculous. I remember watching the old – really old – ‘Anne of Green Gables’ when I was little. It didn’t seem as hokey as this book BUT I’m going to finish it because I want to read ALL 100 books!
**Netflix is not helping my insomnia in the least. They have a new creepy crime show on…
These people are vile and disgusting and beyond creepy and doesn’t this guy look like a creepier death row Uncle Fester?
You know, Ted Bundy was vile and disgusting but at least he looked “normal” and he gave intelligent and informative interviews.
Did Mimi just defend a serial killer?
What are you thankful for??
When you’re thirsty what’s your “go to” drink?
What things do you have going on??
Please share in the comments below and have an amazing evening!
