Tuesday Tidbits

    My transition back to the Medical /Surgical/ Telemetry unit at the sickly house has been hard on the ole bones.   Especially my ankles and heels.  Better shoes are in the forecast.
Bloggers....It is amazing the state of health that people get themselves in ....for sure.
   I have started taking Clay Classes with a local woman.  She has a rather comfortable stern way about her.  I used to love clay work and then somehow life happened and i never got a chance to get back at it.   I am looking for that certain something.  I love the feel of wet clay .
My first project was a pig sponge holder (free form) .  He came out cute.  I have more stuff and more ideas.  Long term goal is to eventually get a kiln.

 
    My basement redo will start tomorrow AM.  New drainage system...new lighting...new floor and then.....A clay and craft  area!!!  I can't wait !!!
Before and Afters to come.
My Assistant drove me to a yarn shop in a different village over the weekend and then we trekked over to Duluth Trading Company.   I had never been there and was curious.
I will have to say...pricey but good quality from what i could tell... I wanted to buy a pair of pants but am between sizes.  I gotta gain or lose...I am going to try and drop about 10 LBs
My scruff muffin dog and I will trek to another village tomorrow to get out of this hell bent town, while they jack hammer my basement floor.
Tonight...Little People shows.
The Roloffs are intriguing me.  The divorce, the dating, the big...the little...the new babies...Lovely

I Am Being Watched... for real

My sister is the one that said..."Damn...start blogging again!!"  and so i did.
One of my old frenemy (lol) blog friends commented and i realized i really have missed my blog.
Dammit Pammy Sue..Ya got me all misty.
So. activities?

  •   I am painting my screened in porch a scrumptious chocolate brown
  •  I am going to a clay class on Thursday...I can't wait.  I loved it a long time ago and want to start doing it again.
  • I have a short bob now....i will post a pic .  It took like a year to grow.
  • The Little People Roloffs  have me intrigued...So many changes with them as the years have gone by.  
  • I  will not blog about politics. I will not blog about politics. I will not blog about politics. I will not blog about politics.😁
  • I am knitting dishcloths as we speak....Love my knitting.
So ...lets get to the meat of it..
You know how i am thinking that we are all being "watched"  ???
Well...i have been having a kinked neck since Monday... and last night i asked my assistant to try and rub it, pull it or something. Anything !!!  I just want it fixed.   So anyways he couldn't get it done, so i was on the floor trying to pop it and stretch and we were just sitting talking of grand kid stuff...When the phone rang.
I answered it and it was a recorded sales type call about my "recent" online inquiry about neck braces.
What the H??? Um....No one here searched a damn thing online and again....What the H ???
Hope the govt.  gets their little surveillance glitches fixed.
Anyhoo
Off to paint
My hair grown out ..... took awhile

Rainy Days....and Recliner-ing

Back to Crumble Town musings, news, and adventures.
I heard Ted Nugent tell a snotty Liberal news man the other night.....
"You have no idea what the heartland feels and thinks."
 Ain't that the truth Bloggettes!!!
So...Today.  Rain in Indiana.  What else would it be doing ?  lol
Our basement will be getting a new drainage system in next month.  I am going to try and keep it dry and use it for a crafty area.
QVC lulls on, as i blog.   I love Dave Venable...aka...In The Kitchen With Dave.
Rumor has it that his sweet on air personality is indeed not the real Dave.
One of my sources tells me that he is quite a control freak and pretty much runs the gig at the Q.
I no longer work every weekend ...so now i will be out broad casting more on the weekends.
I will be taking my Assistant along for support and "assisting"

I have decided that i will probably be somewhat of a loner for the remainder of my life.
I am staying in my recliner all day today.   I should be doing something but....what?
I am planning on watching reality TV  and knitting all day.
btw
Has anyone been through the drive thru at McDonalds lately?   Last night, I had a kid hand me my milkshake  that looked like a 4th grader.

Hey...Fidgets are on the Q right now....Didn't i just read an article about  a kid that choked on a Fidget part

Hish, Hash......and bash ..lol

Wow.!!!..2016 is over....What a year!
I am so torn on whether or not to blog again.  I loved blogging for long time....and then people kinda got all judgy on me.
Well....here goes.....again
So...Oblama is gone.  Thank you baby Jesus. Don't be fooled though.... He is lurking in the shadows.
Evil lurks ...for sure Blogettes.
 I actually had to focus the last few years and keep to myself a bit. I really wasn't sure what was going to  happen to our country....I still don't, but at least the person in charge likes our country.

  • I have the two love of my life grandsons that bring me happiness.
  • My son and daughter in-law are doing well and live about an hour away.
  • My daughter is doing good ....working for the post office.
  • My little dog is still as cute as ever.
  • I still LOVE Reality TV...all TV ...really
  • I still love knitting.
  • I am still working at the sickly house.
My Assistant is still attentive as ever.  Things change as you get older though...more on that later.
Over the span of a few years,  I have indeed  been dumped again by a few more friends.  They drop out a lot....lol  Abandon ship... so to say.
Oh i know what your thinking...
"It must be you Jayne."  "It's you that obviously has an issue." "Jayne...YOU have to change a bit to keep friends happy!!"
I dont.  I wont ...and I don't care to be someone I am not.  My political views and opinions are an embarrassment to some.  Most humans avoid people that could cause them possible harm to their social standing.
Of course, it stings and hurts,  but after a lot of praying and a few sad thoughts...I know who i am and I am not a bad person.  I find a peace about it in my prayers.
These things happen as you get older ....No one promised that life would be a steady thing.
Some are the loyal...and some are..the.....not so much.
Minions are easy as long as they stay in order.  lol

On to TV.  I have a few new shows that i can't seem to turn away from.

  • Moving On  : The Duggers trudge on. This show is about the older kids. Love me some Jinger and Jeremy . 
  • My Big Fat Fabulous Life:  Smart ass 30 something that acknowledges her weight issue. Sometimes she cares....sometimes she doesn't.
  • 600 Pound Life:  Can't look away.
  • Dance Moms:  Still a loyal viewer.
  • Housewives:   All of them!
  • Little Women LA:  I like all Little People shows.  BTW.....Did you hear about the Roloffs?  Amy and Matt got divorced and Amy is dating a regular sized man.  They motorcycle around Oregon.  Amy has a bakery and a pumpkin butter biz. 
  • Fixer Upper:  Love Chip and Joanna
  • Chopped 
  • Cooks vs Cons
  • Big Brother...and the after dark show :/

I still enjoy reading other's blogs.
Attic 24 if you are reading this...I thought you should know that you have some that are trying oh so hard to be you.   They never will be though.  You are the Frontier Queen of the comfy cozy yarning blog.
Just saw clips the Warren B. award mix up...Ha
The Hollywood meltdown continues to make me smile a bit.
Geesh...I am feeling a bit of fire today.
Bye for now.

Greetings From Nowhere


HI Blog Babes,
It has been a long time since my last post.
So....
Life here in Crumbletown, Midwest is rolling along.
I continue to progress into old age , hence the peri-menopause issues and the intro of new BP meds.
The hormones wifting through the vents on the OB unit  are screwing with me,  that's for sure.
 The blood pressure has probably been going on for awhile...I was in denial, and.....well...i really don't like to go to the doctor,  said the RN to her therapist.
I have been totally watching my TV as usual .  I really love TV....Why?..I don't know, but i do.
Speaking of showbiz...What did you all think of the passing of Prince?   I liked him back in the 80s.
Someone at work told me that Prince didn't like elevators.  Hmmm...So why was he on the elevator?  Suspicious?
Also...while on the topic of Showbiz...I am sick of Hollywooders putting out  dumb opinions about politics...They like to talk about how the rules on taxes, jobs, freedom, gun control should be enforced upon "us" (not them...of course)...because they will always have a stash of cash and guns protecting them against the crazies.
I wish all of the weirdos that say they will move out of the United States, if they don't get their way, would leave already....like soon.
I have to work my 12 hour shift tonight, pick up a couple of mini Birthday cakes at the Marsh Grocery on the way, sleep a bit tomorrow, wake up , drink my coffee, and take my  28 year old Birthday girl out to Olive Garden for dinner.
Speaking of food.....
Did you hear that McDonald's is changing the chicken (wink wink) nuggets?
Here is a local Police Scanner report from Thursday night in Crumbletown.  Just a little tidbit to tempt one into moving to my town
Scanner >>>
<<<< Suspicious man in parking lot , undressing, yelling at cars.  900 Block of N. Washington St.  Family Dollar.....Suspect is now attempting to climb into the drive thru window at Kentucky Fried Chicken>>>>>>

Oy Vey...The simple life...indeed.

Reality Recap

Midlife Crisis Meri on Sisterwives is melting down quickly.  After that Catfish prank,  things have pretty much gone to  Hell in a hand basket.
Cody showed his behind again as a standoff between he and one of his older sons took place, in last nights episode.
Psssst...It was about discipline ...and the lack of good parenting on Cody's part (according to the son)
 An off the cuff remark by the disgruntled adult male child to the cameras about dear ole Dad followed....
"Cody (dad) knows everything and is the "almighty"
Well...Blogettes.....it is what reality  TV is all about.
BTW  Robyn had her ultrasound of Brown baby #18 and i just know it wanted to make Meri puk!!!

On 90 day Fiancé  the Jamaican transport announced to his American nurse finance about his plans to send 90% of his (their) money back to his family in Jamaica ......HAhaha   I saw the wheels a turnin in her eyeballs....lol
So ...Did anyone see Jessica Simpson on QVC selling her clothes???
The rumor is..... that she was either drunk or stoned during the show.....I have read that she was drinking a lot of wine in the green room prior to shooting...She did appear to be really tired and her speech was slow and slurred.  I watched the whole thing from my Tempurpedic and i knew, while watching, that the fall out would come....Poor kid...And, look at what the Paparazzi is already doing to her.  Um......Her toes are creeping out of her shoes....Not good. ....Sorry J.
