Sunday Stealing--Fill It In

Play here.

1. Right now I'm sitting in bed, wishing I could fall asleep, but since every time I lay down, I start coughing, I don’t think a nap is going to happen.  Damn cold.

2. The collection of trivia and other semi-useless knowledge is my well known quirk.

3. Are you experiencedWhy Jimi Hendrix was the first thing to come to mind, I have no clue.

4. Dinner first, then dessert! (Said in my Mom's voice)

5. That's why, because I said so(Said in my Dad’s voice)

6. The Expanse is one of my favorite tv shows ever!  (FYI, this is the original trailer, the show is now on Amazon Prime, and getting ready to start the 4th season)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to hanging out with hubs, watching TV, and, tomorrow my plans include going to see the new movie, Knives Out.  I can’t wait!!!

8. If I could go anywhere on a road trip, I'd go to Ouray, Colorado via US 550.  US 550 runs through New Mexico and is about 10 miles from my house.  The part between Silverton, CO and Ouray is called the “Million Dollar Highway”.  I will never do this, because my husband would NEVER drive on a road like that, lol.  He doesn’t like heights much and the whole "tunnel to avoid rockslides" would have him saying "ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR F*%&ING MIND!!".

9. Why the hell we are still in Afghanistan is something I don't understand. 

10. Thanksgiving makes me think of family, gratitude, food, and putting up the Christmas lights.

11. Taking a vacation (preferably with $$$$ and a suite in a 5-star hotel) is the best way to relax!

12. It looks like Autumn has come and gone—all the leaves are off the trees, it snowed on Thanksgiving, and it’s windy as hell.  Welcome to Winter.

13. Celery sticks with Sabra Classic Hummus is one of my favorite healthy snacks.

14. The smell of gardenias makes me think of my childhood home in Mississippi.  There were gardenia bushes under my window and during the humid nights, the smell was so strong.  I smell that smell, and it’s like a time machine back to that house.

15. When I am feeling lazy I watch TV, read, sleep, and generally do anything to avoid any kind of housework.

16. When I look to the left, I see Ellie, the cat.

17. The dining room and the patio (well, it’s an outside room) are the room(s) that have the best view in my home.  We don’t really have “views” per se from this house.  We are in a neighborhood that is in a little valley, so we can’t really see the Sandia Mountains from here, just houses all around us.  However, my dining room looks out on our little patch of green lawn and our tree, which make me happy.  From the patio, you can see the huge sky overhead, and off to the north, so that’s good ๐Ÿ˜Š  Here's a spectacular New Mexico sunset from our patio.

18. Our beautiful outdoor light installation was done dirt cheap!  ‘Cuz hubs did it himself.  Yay!!

19. Voting is a responsibility that all qualified citizens must share.

20. If you have any any words of wisdom, feel free to share them with me.


  1. #7...Let us know how it was. The previews look very good.
    #13...another good snack, but I like the roasted garlic. Garlic is my favorite seasoning. Must be why I've never seen a vampire. lol
    #15...right there with you.
    #17...We have sunsets like that in PA these days. I don't remember them being like that until the last few years. I don't know what changed, but I sure appreciate the color show!

    Have a great day and enjoy the movie!

  2. I would love to go stay in a nice hotel! That sounds so relaxing. Enjoy your movie today! Loved your answers. Have a nice day!

  3. #6 Just added to my list and will start watching tonight after my son goes to bed.
    #11 Sounds heavenly. Actually, any hotel stay other than our most recent Holiday Inn stay.
    #13 Have you tried Tribe dark chocolate hummus? It’s delicious.

  4. I've been on that Highway. Glorious! I've been on worse ones. Nail biters.... your hubby's so cute.
    Our sense of smell is even stronger than our eyesight in "fixing" places and people in our minds. Curious, isn't it?
    #9? We are there because we have an infant in the Oval office. He want's so badly to please some shadows whose favor he's been chasing for, and this for when he's not longer the Prez. Just sayin'.

  5. I did think about a trip across the USA too - either that or across Canada. I once drove around Florida from Orlando to the keys via Miami and back up the other side.

    It was fun.





I hate the whole moderating thing, so I'm going to try Captcha instead. We'll see. Let me know if you hate it.
