Tuesday Talk...


Here we are, we made it through Monday.  So, lets talk about something on this Tuesday.  If you wanna linkup, head on over to visit LizStephanie or any of the other hosts to do so.

I promised in yesterday's post that I would talk about Stranger Things.  With some prompting from my cousin & seeing many people talk about it here in the blogging world, I knew that I had to give it a shot.


The hubby was a little reluctant but I talked him into it & he was happy that I did.  We buzzed through the whole series in four nights...maybe three, I cannot remember.  All I know is that we were hooked after the first episode.

If you don't know what it's about, there is a tight group of four boys & one of them goes missing which leads to not only a new friend but crazy government stuff.


I thought it kind of had a Stephen King / Tales from the Darkside feel to it & with that, it was a win in my book.  I thought the acting was great, the story was amazing & all the 80's stuff was awesome!  Plus, my favorite character, Dustin, wore a shirt that read:  "Waupaca, Wis."  A town about forty-five minutes away from where I live.


I really, REALLY hope that they decide to do another season & hopefully answer some unanswered questions from the first season.  But if they go in a different direction but keep the same creepy/weird thing going on, I would be game for that too.

So, if you haven't checked this out on Netflix, totally do it especially if you like all things that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up in a good Stephen King type way.  :)

    1. There is much more to the storyline, of course, & each character has something that they bring to the table. Definitely worth a viewing.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.


My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
