Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Randomness

Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Randomness

…may very well spell the end of NaBloPoMo for me before all is said and done. Tuesdays, because it’s This Is Us night, and I have to block off a period of time to watch, cry, and then go discuss it on Facebook with other like-minded individuals who also block off part of the night to watch, cry, and go discuss it on Facebook. Wednesdays, because that is the day of my double shift at work, and the last thing…

Music Monday – For the first time in a long time

Music Monday – For the first time in a long time

It’s been a while since I posted any sort of Music Monday or similar post. It’s actually been quite a while since I actually liked any music. But then this year, a band of brothers (and one friend) from Michigan burst onto the scene and took the music world by storm. They’re very young, have been drawing well-deserved comparisons to the mighty Led Zeppelin, selling out shows across the country as I type this, and have probably single-handedly restored my…

It’s the little things, y’all….

It’s the little things, y’all….

And since I will take a victory whenever and wherever I can, I consider my weekend productive and accomplished. This may sound weird, but I spent most of it doing dishes. And enjoying my 80-degrees-in-November weather! (Seriously. Everyone I know is all like “I want cooler temps!” and “I can’t wait for winter!” But I am just enjoying these unseasonably warm days while they last, because I don’t like cold weather.) So the reason I did dishes all day long…

Song for Saturday

Song for Saturday

So my original plan was to spend this weekend getting caught up on all the NaBloPoMo posts, and reading other blogs, and getting a jump start on future posts for myself. Anyone who knows me probably already knows how that went! In my defense, my house was really messed up, so I’ve been cleaning off and on all day. Also, I just got into How I Met Your Mother, and I’ve been marathoning that all day. Which brings me to…

Weekly (and beyond) wrap-up

Weekly (and beyond) wrap-up

So, this may seem like kind of a cheat, since I’m supposed to be posting every day for a month. But I was over at another blogger’s site, and mentioned that I’m just not my best in the morning (yet. I hope to become that way someday!), so I plan on getting the bones for some posts down over the weekend, and just fleshing them out in the mornings. Obviously, I’m not a great blog content planner and on top…

It’s taken me a while.

It’s taken me a while.

But I’m finally getting around to another None Left Behind post. And that? Is just a post where I showcase something that I never leave behind, usually something vintage found in my thrift hunts. Have you ever seen one of these? It’s a West Bend Penguin Hot and Cold Server Ice Bucket. I can’t remember if my parents or even grandparents had one of these, but apparently they were a staple in many households post WWII. Made in the USA…

NaBloPoMo 2017, Day 1

NaBloPoMo 2017, Day 1

NaBloPoMo. National Blog Posting Month, for those of us who aren’t currently writing a novel and participating in NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Or for those who are, and need/want to write still more. I’m not one of those, but I am sure they do exist out there somewhere! So, I have a love/hate relationship with NaBloPoMo. It defeats me every. year. But this year? This year I am determined to make it my bitch. So much so that…

Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul

Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul

…Really love that rock and roll… How is it that it’s *already* Halloween, and that I still haven’t managed to catch The Rocky Horror Picture Show yet this year? Maybe that needs to be my goal for tonight, but to be honest, I’m too wrapped up in Stranger Things right now. We shall see. It’s a perfectly chilly Halloween morning. I’ve returned from a four-day mini vacay in which I went to see the Foo Fighters in Birmingham (recap coming…

Ten Years Ago Today

Ten Years Ago Today

On this day exactly ten years ago, I was on my way to what would be a life-changing event for me. I had been to many concerts before (even some Type O Negative shows), but this one was special. I’ve even been lucky enough to hang out backstage at a few, watch sound check at a few, and meet the bands at a few, but this one was special. It wasn’t even because they were my very favorite band at…

Hello, again, hello.

Hello, again, hello.

And good Monday morning to ya on this beautiful, albeit way-too-cold-for-me start to a gorgeous autumn day.  If you landed here, yay! So last week I went to the Facebook group to link to a post (which has since been deleted) which announced my return to blogging. (Why did I do that?  Is an announcement under these circumstances just the opposite of a “flounce” – you know, where when you’re in a Facebook group and someone has come across something…
