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 are ways that I am a nerd.


  1.  I love to read.  & yes, I was that kid that would go to the library to get a stack of books to read.  & when I say a stack, I mean a big ol' frickin' stack.  All RL Stein, baby!  Ha!  My mom would pick me up books at garage sales or Goodwill, I had tons of books & still have tons of books.  I love books!  :)


  2.  I want to go to Comic Con.  There is gonna be one in Indiana in a couple of months & Charlie Cox from Daredevil is gonna be there & I would love to see him cuz I'm a sucker for anything Marvel especially of late with me watching Daredevil, Jessica Jones & Luke Cage.


  3.  Speaking of Marvel...it started with Thor & went from there.  Thor is still my favorite (I even have a sticker on my car of his hammer) but I am really liking Black Panther & Jessica Jones.  I mean, can we please talk for a minute about Jessica Jones?!  She is such a total badass, I love her!  I want to be her!  I am not even kidding you right now!



  4.  My love for Harry Potter.  This love came on fast & is just getting to be more & more relevant.  I was late to the party on this one.  All the books were out by the time I started reading the series & only the last two or three movies were not out yet.  I have since read the series twice, gone to the Wizarding World in Orlando, purchased myself a Bellatrix wand & many other Harry Potter themed goodies.  I am even thinking about getting a tattoo.  I love HP!  :)


  5.  First the show, then the "graphic novels".  I have devoured both.  I have the show on DVD/BluRay, I have ten collections of the novels, I have a lil Daryl figurine that guards my desk & I have a shirt sporting Negan.  I even almost bought a jacket because it looked like Negan's...I am now kicking myself for not buying it.  *sigh*

So, do I have a Nerd Card?!  You best believe it & I'm proud to be a nerd!  :)

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…

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.
