I am back y’all!
To prove I am back to blogging, I will be doing my version of Vlogmas, but Blogmas! I will be posting everyday up until Christmas. Are you excited? I am a bit nervous because it has been a while since I blogged.
Let’s catch up. I really stopped blogging because I felt censored because of my job and the election. The election took a lot out of me. It was a time where I wanted to say so much, but knowing I couldn’t. And if I wanted to keep my sanity I stopped blogging. I still read blogs but I stopped writing because I felt like I wasn’t being authentic if I couldn’t be political. I have a question for folks though? Really, America?
Let’s go back to April/May. My book club tested me and I mean it tested me to the point I was going to disband and at one point I was in tears. Although the person who cased the issue in April apologized, I have felt some kinda way about the book club as whole. Especially when we agreed on a meeting and date for the May meeting, in April and only two people other than myself showed up. When I tell you I was angry and I let them have it. We didn’t even meet in June either and I loved it because I just could not deal with their asses. Basically, the commitment is gone. I am thisclose to being over it. Then we will have a meeting like October’s meeting and I am reminded why I started the book club. However, if things do not get better I am done. Another situation happened within the book club that opened some folk’s eyes about the truth of people. Yea, I am being cryptic some of the members read the blog.
I did do a small flower garden. However, it wasn’t my best. My geraniums are basically all dead now because of the drought. Oh, we are in the middle of a drought and although it has rained, we are still below levels throughout the state.
2016 has been taking folks left and right. And I am still grieving Prince.
I have lost and gained weight throughout the last six months. However, my doctor’s appointment today shows the slow decline. I can’t drop the weight like a teenager anymore. My doctor and I get along now. We make each other laugh. Tiffany his nurse is why I keep going back.
OMG! Did you see the winter finale of HTGAWM? I cried and was so upset. Why? I thought it was going to be Nate and I had psyched my head up to being fine without that body… I mean the actor on the show.
Hurry up Scandal! Because Empire delivered a secret last night that was so anticlimactic I was pissed off.
I took pictures for a Creative Cooking post. It still hasn’t been written. I made fried corn too.
We did some refurbishing on the outside of the house. Looks great, but new wood means we also have become hosts to a yellow jacket hive. I can’t y’all. My yard guy got messed up by them yellow jackets. I need to get some more spray because they have 2 hives. One I killed the other I have no idea where.
I did my usual dishes for Thanksgiving, however, I made up my rolls and froze them a few days before Thanksgiving. I baked my sweet potatoes instead of boiling them and they tasted more like sweet potatoes instead of candied mashed potatoes, if that makes sense.
However, I cannot wait until the week of Thanksgiving to clean up. No can do. I was so tired after I finally finished Wednesday night it was crazy. However, my house looks good considering I had a house full. Go me!
My sister and her 4 daughters were here for Thanksgiving. Why does Lala torture me so? Hunny Bunny is an official teenager. Caitlyn is a senior in college. Finally, Aloha is so chunky y’all and she was used to me before she left. I was able to play with her, until my back started hurting and make her laugh…too cute.
The Guy is probably the only one waiting on me to blog, but I am back. See you tomorrow. Oh, no the blogs will not all be randoms.
Finally, do you remember my former Christmas wish blogs? Well I got one of these items a month ago tomorrow. Can you guess what it is? Find out tomorrow!
