Before I share this, I want you to know, I watched an interesting movie yesterday which I will be reviewing tomorrow, probably.
Also, my house/mobile home is half painted. Not sure I care for the color, but it’s approved by the park, it will look cleaner and I should be able to sell this place which is what really matters and the main reasons I did this.
And now, I would like to introduce you to:
He is here and he is going to be my bodyguard and house security. That’s his job.
It started this morning as I was reading my morning comics! They kept talking about ‘No Pants Day, so I Googled it. I mean, That can’t be a real Holiday, right? Surprise! It is.
It was started by some college students as a joke. They would take their mid-terms or whatever then immediately go home and take off their pants. Soon, it became a sort of Holiday. In some places, they even have No Pants subway rides, but aren’t doing that, this year. Anyway, the rules are, you could wear dresses, skirts or shorts but no Pants. I know…not exactly my interpretation either, but, if you are more comfortable being completely Pantsless; Go For It! Just make sure blinds and curtains stay closed and don’t answer the door. Actually, the day is over so you will have to mark your calendars for next year. Sorry.
Anyway, I also got extremely stoked when Amazon dropped off another package from my Secret Santa… Yeah, little things excite me…. Here’s what came:
Seriously, this is so Cool! I have been playing it up and even told my friend, Jul to bring her new socks on a camping trip because I knew of a cool lake where they have empty cabins!
Okay, So I probably didn’t “tell” you, I probably wrote it and you read about her…. Anyway, she is my baby and my Trouble Maker.
Today, she “helped” me make the bed, so the sheets can stay wrinkled.
But, here’s the part, I hope makes you smile. Susy is my talker.
As we were ending Bible Study via Zoom….we are on Hebrews, by the way, if you were wondering….Susy approached me just Meowing away as one of the girls asked, “Who wants to do the closing prayer?” Suzy said “Meow” so she goes, “Does the cat want to do the closing prayer?”. Seriously, the timing was perfect! But, Susy was very good and kept quiet during the closing prayer.
Have I mentioned lately that I have super, smart, Followers? Well, my favorite, recovering slob nailed it, this time. If you haven’t checked out her site, you should
, I believe. She can correct me in the comments, if I’m wrong.
Anyway, onto our Christmas Quest:
Have you ever been on the Quest to find the perfect gift? Maybe, you want to get something unique, that noone including the recipient would think of, or maybe it’s something specific they asked for.
When I was young, I believe it was the Cabbage Patch Doll. My parents had to go to store after store discovering they were sold out before finally finding one. This was before the internet and cell phones… when people simply waited in lines at stores hoping the popular toy was in stock.
Or, even going to the mall with friends at Christmas time was a Quest. You had your list of people and possible ideas, but there was a time frame and budget to get it all done.
And tomorrow is R. It might be a little advice to help you out. I’ll give you a hint. It’s not Rudolph! Lol
C. had to pick up Ben from work so I asked if I could go along. We passed a restaurant that I cannot pronounce the name ‘Las Pupusa’. I tried it way to many times and even Googled it. I had C. cracking up by either adding too many poo’s,s’ss or la’s, and it wasn’t/isn’t deliberate. My letters just twist when I try to say the word.
After dropping Ben off, we decided to go gambling, again. This time at Rainbow Casino. It was really cool and they even gave us free gifts. C. loaned me $20 which I repaid her plus I even got to spin the wheel and won $50. on it. We also got $12.50 to spend at the restaurant but didn’t want to wait half hour. At least it’s good for 7 days. I left with $30 and bought us dinner at Denny’s.
Came home to find my clothes from Breezecloth.com arrived but don’t want to try them on til tomorrow. I was tired of smelling like smoke and needed to take a bath and crawl in bed. They look nice but the one pair of pants has cat faces with pink cheeks, so if I keep it, I will need to get purple fabric marker or paint to fill that in, before I wear them.
I have decided not to get new windows but to get the outside of the house painted, instead.
My washer/dryer arrived today but since nothing is simple, I can’t use it until Monday. Apparently, it is a 220 volt and my last one was 110 so the electrician will be back to wire it. Unfortunately, my handyman is charging me more for pick-up then the store would have done for the delivery. Oh well.
The other night I had a dream that a friend of mine got married and didn’t tell me. When I awoke, I called him. Turns out he is gett
ing married and I will be invited. Koontzfan made an interesting comment today that she finds it funny that I love to watch shows about food and dieting, etc.. when I have never been overweight But, I just like the knowledge as well as watching some of the food challenges like Chopped.
I was watching a show on YouTube today where Brits and Americans in the U.S.A switched diets and some of the Brits ate PB & Jelly Sandwiches for the first time. One girl was funny. She said it’s like Hell. If you went to Hell, they would serve it every day.
The word for the week via The Confusing Middle is Cereal. You really should check out the site and take part in some prompts. Theconfusingmiddle.com
That being said:
I am not a Breakfast person. Never have been. When I was young, my mother said I had to eat something after getting up even if it was just a piece of cake. While I do enjoy pancakes, toast, hash-browns, crepes and Cereal, I do not necessarily eat them for Breakfast.
When it comes to cold cereal, I love Lucky Charms…What’s not to like? They’re magically delicious! Plus, they are Gluten-free. I become a kid again eating the Cereal first then enjoying spoonfuls of marshmallows. Sometimes, I will just eat it dry from the box, as a snack. I also like a few of the other gluten-free Cereals out there. Vanilla Oats or Pumpkin & Flax Seed. I feel good knowing I am making healthy choices with those. As far as hot Cereal, I grew up on Cream-of-Wheat and Oatmeal. I used to love Cream-of-Wheat until I became gluten-free and while Oatmeal is okay, I have to be in the mood for it.
Today is the 14th Anniversary of my Kidney Transplant, and in that aspect, I am doing fine. Not a party throwing occasion but I am still proud. God isn’t ready for me, yet.
I admit it. I am Obsessed. I love getting gifts for people. I have so much fun finding the perfect gift for a Birthday or Holiday. One that reflects me yet, helps the recipient to have a wonderful celebration!
My friend Bri and I used to always try to top each other with weird gifts..at least until a few years ago. However, I have done it now! He is turning 60 and I am sending him a Potato Parcel. Yep, it’s exactly as it sounds..a funny box containing a potato with a message on it. I also added a plush potato since I am sure the real one will rot eventually.
Anyway, I keep lists of friends likes and dislikes as well as lists of what I’ve given the year before so as not to give duplicates. I would probably make a good personal shopper via internet for those that don’t have time. But, I would need to figure out how the payment aspect would work..or I suppose I could simply make recommendations.
I used to put boxes together for victims of fires, floods, etc..I would mail them to the city that was damaged and then started asking for acknowledgments of where they were received. I remember the first box I mailed contained a skirt and a flower pot. My mother thought I was being ridiculous..but you don’t know what people miss when they have lost Everything! Anyway, after 9/11 hit, I couldn’t mail my boxes without a specific name or address.
I did help a few locals after nearby fires but I had to sneak so the Red Cross didn’t see me. Now with COVID, that’s not possible. That was another possible at home idea, but of course, that’s charity and no way to make money.
Not really. I could just as well have titled it. ‘Trying To Be A Cat’. I slept from 5:30 or 6 last night, woke up around 2 then back to sleep, reawoke at 5:30,with a Migraine..took an Imatrex, then back to sleep until 9:30 a.m.
Got some Mobile Home Insurance today, since mine has lapsed and its best to have it…just in case.
Also, my Book Santa on Reddit came through in a big way and got me the entire ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ set from my Wishlist. They have other exchanges coming up throughout the year which also sound fun. I highly recomend joining
Figured I would share a laugh since grammar is so important.
Let’s talk about some of the terrible nursery rhymes most of us learned as children that nobody would teach children today. By the way, I use the term, “children” as “Kids” are baby goats and they don’t care.
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after.
When Jack fell, Jill should have walked or called for help. Who found them, and did Jack wind up with brain damage?
Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater had a wife and couldn’t keep her. He put her in a pumpkin shell and there he kept her very well
So many questions? Why couldn’t he keep her? Why not get a Divorce? Keeping her in a pumpkin shell is keeping her hostage. I don’t care if she was kept well
Rock a by baby on the treetop When the wind blows the cradle will drop. When the bough breaks the cradle will fall and down will come baby cradle and all.
Well, isn’t this a soothing little ditty to sing your child to sleep. A cradle is up in a tree. Don’t ask why. A wind blows and makes the cradle drop then the bough breaks and the cradle and the baby falls down.
The baby might break it’s crown but nobody will come tumbling after, and hopefully the baby’s mother doesn’t get held hostage in a pumpkin shell for putting the baby in the tree, in the first place.
