Finally Fiction’s Food Finished

Finally!!   The quote challenge from Gary at FictionIsFood is finished!

But what was the problem?   Doesn’t everyone take 3 weeks to finish a 3 day task??

Uh, not really.   But it’s ok, Melinda.   You just do you.

Why, thank you!!

Today I’m gonna quote Brittany  Torrano.   I met her on my BBFFJ’s site, Mostly Blogging.   This quote was so appealing, I knew I had to steal borrow it!

“When you can, go for the WHY.  The why is an enticer. It’s the smell of fresh pastries from a bakery.”

insert pic of fresh pastries here   I would do that very thing, if I dared walk into a bakery!   So, here you have a pic of who-knows-how-many-years-old-pastries from Google.   Thanks, Google!   (Hey, I have a friend with a dog named Google!   Hi, Cindy D.!!)

slob, humor, pastries

(Where’s that smellovision when ya need it??   Of course, if they’re in fact years old, do we really wanna smell ’em??)

See “why” I had to use this quote??   Cuz I’m hungry, that’s why!!   Or else because I like you.   One of those 2.   (Gary, you have infected me with your ramblings!!)

Why didn’t I use the word “Why” in my headline??   Then my SEO would be sky high!  {I think.   I really have no idea how that works.   Even tho Janice has tried to tell me more than once.}

Now, where was I??   Oh yeah, avoiding the bakery.   No, that wasn’t it.   whirring sounds as mind desperately tries to think

Oh yes! Quoting Gary!   No,no, that wasn’t it either.   Visiting Cindy D.??   Never mind!   I’m headed to take a nap!

ahem   clears throat   uh, Melinda?

Yeah?

Do you think you could finish what you were doing, before the nap??   Ya know, sometime today??

Oh, oh yeah!   Of course!!!   I was just kiddin about the nap, anyways!

no, you weren’t

Okay, so I meant it.   Who’re you now, my nap monitor??

Anyways,  eye roll   the next 3 victims honorees are:

Honest

Suzy

Sahana

Have at it ladies!   Quote away!

Oh wait!  I forgot that Jenny couldn’t participate, (she JUST had a baby!!  What was I thinking???) so I need to tag 1 more person.  And because there wasn’t a rule to say I couldn’t, I pick Gary.   No tag backs!

 

Deep, Dark, Depression

Hey! Ever have one of those nights where, no matter HOW much you love blogging, and I DO!!!, you just can’t get in the groove and write??

Yeah, me neither, ha ha silly question.

Alright, I’m gonna be real here.  Tonight, Sunday, is one of those nights.

I just do not have it in me right now to be funny and entertaining.

So, enjoy this still from the play, “Funny Girl.”

 

 

 

I’m sorry.  I feel like I’m letting y’all down, but I promised honesty about my slobbery, and depression is part of my mental, and emotional slobbery.

Oh how I long for the day when my home is clean and organized , and my interior spaces in my head are all calm, and organized!!!

That will be the day!   I’ll probably have to start a new blog.  “How to Handle Life as an Ex-Slob.”  And it will be blank posts.   Bwahahaha, okay, I think that was funny.

Thanks for hanging in there with me, my peeps.  I love you all.

Silly Soap

Nope, it wasn’t the soap that was silly, it was me.  Shock, shock, right??

Remember last year when I was pontificating about being too old to use broken, ugly stuff??  

Well, then what was the justification for this???

used soap bottle

Fancy dancy soap dispenser, order yours now!

Um, straight up laziness, is all I can plead.  No excuses, especially since I’m even older than when I wrote that!

Even worse, look at the counter.  Shameful, shame I say.

messy bathroom counter

Shock and horror that a slob would have a mess!

And nobody to blame but myself.   So annoying!   Sometimes, I regret living alone!  At least when 1 other person lived with me, I could always delude myself that everything was their fault!  (Even when it wasn’t, as was usually the case, if I have to be honest.)

There, now isn’t that better??

lavender soap dispenser

Ah! Lavender, my love!

And it took all of maybe 60 seconds to pour the soap in it, and throw away recycle the bottle.  Take that, laziness!

I even took a few extra seconds, to wipe down the counter and throw away the bowl.  (Yes, it’s been sitting there for over a month, and…..?  The point is, it’s gone now.  Just be happy.)

clean bath counter

So, so pretty!  Thank you, Jeanette, my neighbor for the lovely lavender soap dispenser.  (She doesn’t even like purple, of any shade.  GASP!  I know!  I feel sorry for her too!)

Inspire Me Monday party

But I Was Gonna…..

You remember “Saga of the Sad Bare Windows“, right?  (since it was only yesterday, I hope so! Lol)

It only had cafe curtains, but I was gonna make valances too.  (Oh, you didn’t know the seamstress was me??)

slob, humor, seamstress

Me sewing industriously

 

Due to a change of circumstances, my table disappeared.  So I can’t sew anymore. So, the valances didn’t get made, but I posted anyway.  (Cuz, ya know, the blog MUST go on!)  Also, to be honest it was a touch of laziness, (I can feel some of you shuddering at even the mention of the “L” word!) even before the table disappeared.

Okay, okay, a lot of laziness, then the table disappeared and I literally couldn’t sew at that point, because I’m not handy at balancing the sewing machine on my knees.  So many excuses……

Anyway, I’ll be moving again shortly, due to another change in circumstances, (being on the walker full time), so the curtains would need to be changed anyway.  So, it’s a good thing I didn’t waste anymore time or material, right?? Right??  Please tell me I’m right!!

As always, I’ll kiss and tell some more later.

BTW, how do you like this header?  Does it make you want to do violence like my giant head did??

I really like this one, but in all honesty, I wish I could figure out how to make it smaller!  Any of you techie bloggers out there,  please feel free to give me advice!!
