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.

AND ON THE 4th DAY OF JANUARY…

The heavens opened up and Magical Mystical Mimi’s window was FINALLY installed!

I can’t even believe it you guys! And it wasn’t even an army of Oompa Loompas. No, it was an army of one!!
One little guy who shared with me that he had moved here from out of state, he’s transgendered and his wife loves to crochet and once made a whole blanket on a 10-hour car ride!
Yes. He shared this with me IN LESS THAN 20 MINUTES.

Seriously tho, really, a nice enough guy but holy hell all I kept thinking was, did I gain a lot of holiday weight because this guy obviously thinks I’m Oprah!


So, day 5 into the new year, and progress is being made and I’m all for that. Now that the window is out of the way, I’m organizing craft stuff. Michael’s is having all kinds of sales right now so I bought a couple of boxes of boxes.
These boxes are perfect for getting my crafty shit together and they fit perfectly on shelves and are super easy to label.
Also, I may be a bit obsessed with boxes. I can always find a use for a good box!
I know I’m not alone on this…
C’mon you guys. I know it’s the unspoken debate in your head too.


Omgosh. I totally forgot this was a Wordless Wednesday post. Ooops. Well, I’ve had a lot of Wordless Wednesdays last year so I’m a little wordy today. 🙂

I’m still totally bummed that Betty White died and I can’t believe everybody’s like, well, she was old. SO WHAT!
My grandma lived to be 104 and it was sad when she died too.
Betty White was cool. It would’ve been nice to see her reach that 100 mark.


Well, we’re in the middle of our first week of the new year. How’s it going for everyone?? It’s pretty good on my end. Things are rolling along. We’ve had a beautiful winter this year which gave us a white Christmas and that was really wonderful. It’s just nice – to me – to look out and see a blanket of white, sparkling snow. My whole life I thought God invented snow just for me because I loved it so much.


Over the holidays I discovered a new show that’s pretty cute and surprise! It’s not a creepy crime show!
It’s on Acorn t.v. – you need a subscription – and it’s called Under the Vines.
It’s filmed in New Zealand and it’s about a man and a woman who inherited a vineyard…


If you are able to watch it I highly recommend it. It just got renewed for a 2nd season so I’m happy about that.

Okay, well, my day is far from over but it’s been a good one and I hope the same is true for you. I hope you’re staying warm, dry, cool, and most importantly, safe, wherever you are. Sleep well!


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
