SPIDERS & GNATS & WORMS! OH MY!

1.) It’s been raining for two days and I have no complaints. Ya’ wanna’ know why??? 3 words.
Winter Storm Toby.
2.) When you read that meme up there you sang the ‘Pina Colada’ song in your head, didn’t you?
3.) If you didn’t then you did just now.
4.) Now the ‘Pina Colada’ song is stuck in your head.
5.) You’re welcome.
SIDE NOTE: I lied. I do have one complaint. With all of this rain comes all of the creepy crawly flying things! Holy hell. My back patio is like a worm morgue with all of the jumping spiders playing leapfrog over those stretched out skinny shriveled wormy bodies!

And these little gnat things?? A couple of warm days and these things come out in droves! Seriously. You can’t go outside without sniffing one of these things up your nostrils! And then comes the coughing and the gagging and the eeewww-ing. It’s just not pretty.
So there. That’s my one complaint about the rain. Still, better than snow.
Rainy days are great for staying inside, drinking pots full of coffee (or tea) and getting crafty.
Let’s see..
SEWING –
I can’t seem to stop making these. They’re super easy and sew up so quickly!
They’re microwavable bowl cozies. They are microwavable safe. Put your soup or your chili in your bowl, put the bowl into one of these very cool cozies, nuke it and pull out your soup/chili by the corners of the cozy and straight into your hands. No more burnt fingers or spills! They’re also great for holding freezing cold bowls of ice cream! My family and friends LOVE these so they also make great gifts!

CRICUT –
Latest cut..
Well, this one isn’t really my last cut but I didn’t take pics of those yet so here’s another shirt I made for my daughter because she is the Queen Bee.
Speaking of my Queen Bee daughter..
She’s pretty crafty herself. This is just one of the many awesome platters she has done for her beautiful kiddos school parties.

CROCHETING –
Currently on the hook..
I have no idea what the stitch is called but it’s super easy and I think I found it on YouTube.
I’m just using up some scrap yarn in shades of pink. NETFLIXING –
Finishing up my binge watching from 2016. Seriously. Apparently, I only got thru 2 seasons TWO years ago. What the hell? Such a great show. I’m on season 3. I’ll be sad to see this show end.
Pulling this post full circle I thought I’d share that “worming” is a thing out here. People dig for worms or use electric prods or probes. The electric prods/probes are much easier. Just stick ’em in the ground and up come the worms. Why do they do this??? They sell them for up to $24.00 a pound depending on the worm. Seriously.
You can read more about it, here.
Okay, well, time to wind it up. I’m trying to post every day and I’ve got about 15 minutes to get this published.

I want to know about your crafting or “must watch shows” or if any of you have wormed or have worms. That would be interesting. I’ve seen dogs scooch their buts across carpet when they’ve had worms. I wonder if that’s what people do.

Leave your answers in the comments, especially if you or someone you know has worms like that guy who had the 5 1/2 foot tapeworm. Soooo disgusting.
You can read about that and see gross pics here.

Okay. I’m out. Be well. Be happy. Be healthy and let your light shine!
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY –

MOVE THAT MOUNTAIN MONDAY!

Happy Monday folks!
I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous fall weekend.
I planned to do nothing all weekend and that is exactly what I did and let me just tell you.
Purposely doing nothing is flippin’ hard!
My purposeful nothingness included a Netflix binge on ‘The Killing’ and eating way too much crappy food.
By Sunday I felt like a lump of nothingness!
leaves barI chose not to do anything this past weekend because –
a.) I have just gotten over some “bug” and
b.) Because it’s that time of year for me. From now until the New Year it will be balls to the wall all things holidays.
It’s my favorite time of year and also my busiest.
leaves barThe downside to choosing not to do anything all weekend is now it’s Monday and I have zero motivation and I do so need some motivation!
In short. I’ve got mountains to move!
I have 3 quilts to put together, 3 stockings to make and 5 scarves to finish up all before the end of Oct.. Seems like a long time but honestly when you add all of the day to day living stuff that needs to be done on top of these projects, it’s really not that much time at all!
leaves barIt’s time for me to turn up some music and get my sewing machine going!
My top tune to kick off my own personal
“Move That Mountain Monday?”
The song that always gets me moving…
‘Walkin’ On Sunshine’ by Katrina and The Waves!
leaves barHow’s your motivation today?
What mountains do you have to move?
How do you motivate yourself to move your mountains???
Tell me all about it in the comments below!

Here’s to a productive week ahead!
