Tahoe Blue

I actually haven’t seen this movie ‘The Fight Club’ but I do love this quote.

Note: that’s just a random thing I put in there, because I saw it the other day.

Tahoe Blue VODKA!!!

So here’s a funny snippet. The other morning I come out of the bedroom and it’s maybe 6:45 am ( of course I’ve been up for at least an hour), but my son sees me with the bottle of Tahoe Blue. He says” it’s a little early isn’t it”???

Well, the funny thing is I reuse pretty bottles like this one to put water in and then water my plants!!!! So I had just finished the plants in the bedroom.

I don’t even drink Vodka although with all the Trump stuff going on I may start soon.

Today is my lab day. I figure I’ll call next week or maybe Friday as it does take 3 days for the SPEP test. All I can do is just wait and see. I feel good but that can be deceiving with myeloma.

I’m also going to do some weights at the gym and then stop at the market as I need half and half and a few other things. I’m trying not to shop till Aug 1 although that is a week away and I know I’ll need some fruit at the very least.

We are in a heat wave and today is supposed to be 102. Yikes!!!

Dinner is unknown at this point.

 

Happy 4th of July

Urspo is one of my favorite bloggers!! So smart and writes great posts!

Then over at

Satisfying Retirement Bob has written a superb post on’What have lost’

You should head over and read these 2 posts as they say everything I want to but they say it better!!

 

 

 

What is this country coming to?

It is unbelievable to me how we have devolved into madness in this country.

Where is common sense? Where is decency??? When do people like Trump stop blatantly lying? This is the president???? He’s the one who put forth the zero tolerance in the immigration situation, not the Democrats.  Both President Bush and President Obama never did that.

When do people like Sessions and others stop lying and using absolutely ridiculous defenses like quoting a bible verse.?

It seems like insanity to me.

And the children??? We are no better than the Nazis at the beginning of the Holocaust. That’s how it all started. Lies, controlling the media, and separating children from their families.

Good grief Charlie Brown, can I immigrate to Canada, NOW!! Actually many years ago we did try but we didn’t have the skills they wanted and not enough money. 😦

Midweek stuff and a blood moon!

We went to Costco for our February shop. It was weirdly quiet in there. We were able to move about without threat of bodily harm. Nice!!

I spent $300 on food stuff which did include stocking up stuff like canned black beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, coffee, butter, bread, cheese, some frozen salmon, and cereal and more. Then we spent $150 on non-food such as beer, underwear, face cream, dishwasher stuff and more.

So, I’ll put the $300 towards my $500 food budget and $150 toward non-food. I haven’t put a number on this yet since I will need cat food and a few misc.

Our weather is getting beautiful and the next 2 weeks our highs will be @ 70. Yes!!

We were up early enough to catch the lunar eclipse and it was earrily red. Then we watched it come out of the eclipse as we walked. Very cool.  Stuff like this makes me realize that even a hundred years ago these things were like strange.  Can you imagine a thousand years ago seeing this . Okay , here’s the snarky me coming out. Gee, imagine 2,000 years ago and the phenomena of water into wine?? walking on water???? rising from the dead??? Gee, how to explain it??? Jesus who???  Okay enough.

I refused to listen to the misogynist in the White house last night. It’s all BS anyway. But I CANNOT stand his voice. I’m not sure what’s up with that but I have a theroy that he’s really an alien ( look at those hooded eyes) and that he’s programmed milllions by his voice except atheists like me.

wow, this has gone from Costco to atheism, I ‘d better quit now.

Just a reminder, this my blog, if you don’t like it, don’t read it!!!

13th of December

YES! YES!YES!, Doug Jones won. I am beyond excited that he beat that racist, pedophile Moore.

1727-Albert-Einstein-Quote-Out-of-clutter-find-simplicity

I love this quote and that it’s by Einstein.

I actually decluttered a few things that just don’t have a home (ie, a toothbrush thing that came with the sonic care). I haven’t  used in in year so I put it in the thrift store box. There were a few other things too, like 2 small snow globes that really don’t have a place for.

I walked alone as B is on the north coast. Then I sliced cheese and prepped sliced meat for the FOAL luncheon.

Then I started laundry and made polenta. I didn’t go to the gym yesterday so I went today and just did a 30-minute workout.

I’m heading out to the luncheon soon.

I received a pre-release e-book of ‘ The Minimalist Kitchen’ and it is absolutely fantastic. I love it. I would highly recommend buying this book when it comes out it in March.

I still need to get a gift card for my brother at Tractor Supply this week. Other than that Christmas is going to very simple and minimalistic which I am thrilled about.

 

Is the world or people getting crazier?

After this last church massacre, it’s hard to find the words to express the craziness and horribleness of such a crime. What would motivate someone to do this heinous act on children and adults in a church?  It seems the world is spinning out of control..

One thing I feel for certain is there is no need for semi-automatic guns. When the 2nd amendment was written, HELLO???, they had pistols and muskets. The right to bear arms is relative and needs to be addressed in context to the world we live in. Somehow people and the NRA don’t see this as relevant.  Automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons are for one purpose, to kill as many people as possible. Useful in combat undoubtedly, but for the average person, I don’t think so.

Somehow the hate seems to be growing and that’s a scary thing.

 

Catching up

We’re still at Tahoe for a few more days. It’s lovely here with fewer kids running around and therefore quieter.  Mostly retired folks.  There are a few families here and there but even the beach is dramatically less busy. Of course, this is the weekend, so it’ll get busier.

We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary here and planned to go to a fancy place for lunch. But the menu wasn’t impressive and it turned out not to be fancy but order at the counter. This was The Ridge if you’re interested.  So we decided to make fancy cheese and avocado sandwiches in camp and it was perfect. We’ll do something special out sometime. I’m not one to hold to ‘it has to be’ this way so it was easy.

We’ve had 3 Lodge dinners and last night was a pizza again. So much fun to cook with the Lodge.  But tonight we’re thinking a soup or quesadilla. Just an easy meal.

We had fun going to Goodwill and then we’ve been at the grocery store almost every day for either ice or whatever.  But since Safeway is just up at the corner it’s convenient.

We also have been to the gym twice and that was good to do some weights. I need to ramp up my workouts.

OMG, I forgot, the best news of all my LABS came in the normal range. I’m going on 14 months. Pretty amazing!!!!! I see my oncologist the first week of September so it’ll be just a touch base with him. So relieved and obviously, happy.

On a political note, it’s just amazing Trump would pardon Arapio(sp?) . I mean can we go any lower. And now banning transgender going into the service. We are going backward.  Geez, hard to really comprehend how low Trump can go.

Oh, and how bout it’s okay to leave up the Confederate statues to represent oppression because the civil war was about taxes(which I’m sure was part of the picture) and slavery was legal( so it wasn’t about that)?. So we need to keep them as symbols of respect…Well, I’m obviously being facetious and referring to another bloggers post about the whole statue thing so I’ll leave it at that.  This is my blog and I’ll write what I want just as she can write what she wants. We’re all entitled to believe what we believe as long as it doesn’t oppress or hurt others. I’m pretty sure that’s what neo nazis and white supremacists want to do.

Anywho…. it’s a beautiful day in Tahoe. I hope the hurricane in Texas didn’t cause too much damage.
