Paper Purgathon- Pact

slob, humor, challengeIt was hard to come up with that first “P” word!

Here is my first mess to deal with, my desk.    Again.

slob, humor, receipts

And this is only since 11/9/2016

Yes, I know it was only _10__ short weeks ago that I de-cluttered that same area in Declutterathon Desk.       AND??         Your point is??      Slob here!!      IN recovery- not recovered yet, by a long shot!!

At least I know WHY this mess!      And where it came from!       Christmas shopping!!         At Bealls, the perfect place to shop!!          Clearance, and coupons, and discounts, oh my!!

Yes, I used a credit card.        (hangs head in shame)           I officially messed up.        But, we’re not here to discuss that!        Paper!        A Paper Purgathon! is today’s topic!

And so since they’re receipts, (two of which are 6 feet long!!),   slob, humor, 6 ft receipts!

(Any new readers asking why I don’t clean up a little first, before I take pix??      That would be, cuz I stay true to my name.       I’m a slob, and I show all the slobbery, in all its hideousness.)

why exactly are they just piled higgledy piggeldy on the desk?      Well, because they have surveys on the back, that enter me into $500.00 shopping spree!         And, if they just stay piled up there, will that enter you??          Well…… no…… but…..         No buts!     Get busy, enter them then toss!             Yes, ma’am, immediately ma’am!

Wow, she gets bossy sometimes!

Read, type, enter…..  rinse, repeat.       Over, and over, and over again.

Hey, that only took me 30 minutes!         For the Beall’s receipts, you mean.         Yeah, well…. yes.         How about the Taco Bell, and CVS ones??            Oh drat!       I have to do all those too????                     But I only promised 15 minutes a day!!           whine, whine, whine…..

(BTW: good thing I did this!     I found a Dr. appt notice, and a chit for blood work under all that!          Whew!        Dodged a bullet there!)

I’m making an executive decision.      Since I only promised 15 minutes a day, and I’ve already done double duty for today, I’m DONE for the day!!

slob, humor, checking bill- twice!

Update:  Got the bill, so I’m checking it twice!    (Yup, I really DID charge all that!!)


Queen Anne’s Day 1:

Queen Anne’s Fellow Sovereigns:

Sitting on the fence;

Pecan Pie

For Thanksgiving, Mama made fresh pies, with love!     Oh so good!!      She made 2 pecan, 1 coconut cream, 2 sweet potato, and 1 chocolate.    Did you hear that, Katie??    ONLY ONE chocolate!!   My worst Thanksgiving fear came true!!     Oh, horrible day!        It was a fight to the death, between Bro. and me!!      (No, neither one of us died, but the pie sadly didn’t survive!)

Since there isn’t any evidence to show you on that one, I decided to blog about the pecan pie.      And, it is pah-cahn, not pee-can, for those not from the South.     (I’m so sorry for you, that you weren’t born here.)

Here is the way I brought it home, packaged so prettily by Mama.

slob, humor, pretty pie    Then, revealed in all its gooey glory!  slob, humor, homemade pecan pie!!

Nuttin else like a pecan pie, made with love by Mama!!       Except 2!!  


(Word of warning:  Do NOT ever research “licking lips”, unless you are prepared for some visual trauma!      Why do people have to be so nasty???? )

I only took 1 slice,

slob, humor, slice missing

What do you mean 1/4 of the pie is NOT 1 slice?? It certainly is!!

My breakfast:

img_20161126_064420  slob, humor, nom nom The only reason for these shots is proof that I didn’t inhale it!    (I’ve been accused of that on multiple occasions!)       See?    I do take bites!                              slob, humor, nom nom nom   Going, going, slob, humor, bye bye pie!   gone!           Yummy!   IT was delish!!

Hey look, Gail!    And Dolly!   And Lynn!     I’m becoming a food blogger!     LOL    (NOT!!)        I’d have too much trouble not eating it all first!


Finally Fall

Sis says I can’t call it officially fall, until the temps are down in the 50s.      Well, we made it!

slob, humor, fall!!  At 8:30 pm!   slob, humor, time stamp

So, I’m calling it:  It’s Finally Fall, y’all!!        And that’s official!

A coupla weeks ago, actually.  Just been so busy, hadn’t gotten, ya know:

slob, humor, roundtuit

And now I have!

Oh yeah, now that it’s time to break out Christmas, here’s a peek at my fall decor.

Handmade by PP, and yours truly, of course!        I think we need to start an Etsy shop!!


Paper Purgathon

Queen Anne has once more declared a De-clutterathon!     Except, this time it’s a Paper Purgathon!

slob, humor, herald trumpet

“Hear ye, hear ye!     Her Royal Majesty, Queen Anne of Minimalia, hath declared a Paper Purgathon thru out the land.       Thou must gathereth together all pieces of paper in thine house, and purge them ruthlessly. Keepeth thou None of them!      

 (Well, not very many, anyway.)

Queen Anne waiteth patiently for thine accounting.”

slob, humor, banner

I’ll be chiming in with my 2 cents worth!! 

Wanna join us?  Even if you don’t blog, join the party!      Purge with us!        Paper- be gone!

Thanksgiving in the South…

Camellia's Cottage

It’s always fun to try to explain the South- it occurred to me that Thanksgiving in the South might provide some enlightenment of our people and our region.. We all know how interesting, madd…

Rave Review

As I’ve mentioned before;  Janice is the author of the wildly successful e-book;   slob, humor, BBFFJ's book

And why is she so successful, you may ask??      Because she follows her own expert advice!!


So, of course since she’s my BBFFJ, I eagerly offered to read it, and give a review.      (I’m no dummy!    I’d be first to find out her secrets!!)

slob, humor, society

This is the review Marsha referenced, in her article, :How Do I Know Which Blogs Give the Best Advice?”         Marsha has posted her own review of Janice’s book here.


PurpleSlobinRecovery Reviews “An Insider’s Guide to Building a Successful Blog: Tips and Tricks from the Creator of Mostly Blogging.”

            Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce premier blogging expert, and my BestBloggingFriendForever, Janice Wald!     Janice, or BBFFJ, as I call her, is a teacher, with a huge heart for helping others reach their full potential.    Not only her students, but everyone in the whole blogosphere!!     And that’s exactly what her new e-book accomplishes!

This e-book is a veritable treasure trove of tried and true wisdom.    Once you’re finished reading this book, you too will know how to build a successful blog, guaranteed!!     (Unless you it read it in your sleep, then the guarantee is null and void.)

In her list of 71 Tested Tips to Help you Blog Better”, she solicited quotes from 71 of her readers.    Even me!!    And I’m as far from an expert, as you can get!    (I didn’t even know what SEO was, until BBFFJ taught me!  )     

 #48. “Comment on others’ blogs.”      And as you might expect, she was the one who taught me that, as well!

This e-book will introduce you to outstanding blogs, and bloggers that are very influential in the field.    Networking is of supreme importance, and you will acquire that skill set.

Seriously, BBFFJ’s e-book is the encyclopedia Britannica for Blogging!      (Oops, I think I just gave away my age there!)     She includes all the wealth of knowledge needed to do exactly as the title says.

Need to know WHERE to promote your blog??     Look no further!    Don’t know WHEN, or HOW to promote your blog?    Never fear!      Janice is here!    (With the answers to ALL your questions.    No, she won’t tell you where Jimmy Hoffa is; it has to be Blogging related!)

This book is a compilation of her posts teaching the ins and outs of blogging.   

  • Knowing when to start a blog.
  • Finding your niche.
  • Finding your voice.
  • How to make, and use excellent graphics.
  • How to post superior content.
  • How to build a blogging community.

And so many other things, you’ll have to read the book to find out!!

You’ll even learn the paramount skill for bloggers:  How to blog, and STILL find time to sleep!!    

slob, humor, sleeping


Under “Examples of Blog Brands”, my BBFFJ once again features lil, ole ME!  {And no, I’m not paying her off! 😉 }

“Melinda Mitchell has a self-deprecating online presence. Her persona is funny, creative, and highly critical of herself. She calls her blog Purple Slob in Recovery, and that is her online presence—she is a purple slob. Bear in mind I am not calling Melinda a slob. This is her online name for herself. Her self-deprecating persona continues into her posts. A typical post, “Library Loser,” explains how she loses library books. Her avatar is that of a woman wearing purple, looking distressed.

slob, humor, Purple Slob- me!

She carries this “purple” theme across her social media. Her Facebook name is Purplelinda. Another creative maneuver that makes Melinda a stand-out blogger is her use of alliteration in her headlines. “Dying Dishes” is another one of her posts detailing the filth that covers her dishes. The post asks where dishes that dirty go to die.”

Oh, ok, I forgot for a second there that I was reviewing my BBFFJ’s book.  Enough about me!!     Back to the book!!

Another vital topic is; “87 Free Blogging Tools.”       Everything in the book is pure gold, so have your highlighter at the ready!!

“Currently, there are over 1 billion websites online. In order to make yours stand out and achieve visibility, you need an action plan.”      If your action plan does NOT include devouring this book, you’ll be sorry!      GET IT TODAY!!



Can you tell I love slob, humor, happy! ?        Oh fer Pete’s sake!      WE know you love yourself!       This is about JANICE, not you!!       Not that anybody would know that, with all the references to yourself you crammed into Janice’s review!

Oh, right!     Janice!  

slob, humor, Janice Wald

My BBFFJ, AKA Janice Wald www.mostlyblogging,com

I love Janice, and Janice loves me!       Now go buy her book, and she’ll love you too!
