Monday Musings


Yes, those are fall colored flamingos ready to be put in my front yard!

You know you're in Colorado when....it's going to be 76 today, 79 tomorrow and Wednesday...and then  degrees with snow on Thursday. And back in the high sixties on the weekend. This, my friends is why I keep access to almost all my clothes, all the time. From heavy sweaters to shorts and tanks. Thursday is a small inconvenience except for that it means m plans to drive to the mountains to see some leaves again may be for nought after the hard freeze. I am seriously short on non-summer cardigans so my no clothes spending may need a shot in the arm this afternoon or tomorrow.

Meanwhile, some Monday morning thoughts and musings:

1.  The gals and I went to see Judy at the movies this weekend. We don't normally go anytime but Tuesdays, but I have been gone. Renee Zellweger is very good and I enjoyed the movie. Although I'm afraid it shows that not that much may have changed in terms of treatment of children and women by the big guys and gals. 



2.  I haven't done laundry since I got back and I only did it early on at my daughter's.  The good news is that I have had plenty of clothes on this one occasion, but I'm not sure I'm up to keeping three weeks of seasonal clothes around. I've narrowed my year around capsule down to about seventy pieces (not including all accessories) and am slowly weeding out the rest. Selling some (hello Poshmark!),  donating some,  and relegating a few to my "around the house clothing drawer". 

I've sacrificed the shelf that usually holds my extra quilts and those things I cannot store downstairs because of my step inability and turned it into "organization central" temporarily. I really need to decide how to store my lighter weight sweaters. I do desperately need some medium to heavy weight cardigans soon. Almost all of my closet is now on my bed or floor as I go through it-and no, I wont share a a pic quite yet.

3.  In revisiting the budget for my drive down and back and in between I did pretty well. It's always different when the goal is simply to get there, rather than the drive being the vacation itself, and in this case my sole purpose was to get home and get back post wedding.  Each time going down and back I stayed at the Baymont Inn. Like most hotels where each one is separately owned they can vary, but this one is extremely comfortable with lots of pillows and very clean, with a wonderful breakfast. And a low sixty bucks a night!  My gas budget for my Nissan Murano was right around a hundred bucks each way. For the three days of the actual wedding my son, sister and I shared a three room suite at the Drury Inn for 430 bucks for three nights. I also paid my share for a dinner out a Jorgs restaurant, a pedicure to match my dress and some small expenses here and there including the cost of antibiotics for the earache from hell. My son-in-law and daughter took me out to dinner a couple times at their expense!

4.  While it's still mainly in the sixties and seventies it's heading to slow cooker time-which is generally cheaper cooking wise, even when I get meat on sale at loss leader prices. Chicken breasts and chops and steaks are, after all, always more expensive than stew meat and pork shoulders and stew meat and most soups. So bring on the fall cooking-and I may even make pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting - for coffee hour of course, not for myself.

5.  Speaking of which, I love pumpkin. Pumpkin soups, pumpkin pie (getting one today), pumpkin bars. But even for me, there can be too much pumpkin. In the past few days I have seen pumpkin ale, pumpkin spice Pop Tarts, pumpkin popcorn, pumpkin tea and heaven knows what else. Honestly folks, one can take a good thing too far. they guy even offered to put pumpkin cream in my hot chocolate this morning. 




6. After a quick visit to my neighborhood pharmacy, it seems that the stronger flu shot for those of us over 65 has not yet arrived and they expect it in another week. so I will probably be getting pneumonia and flu together and then I'll work on that Shingrix thing.

7. And last but not least, while the weather is still high during the day it is cooling off at night. So I have begun working on my heavy poncho, knitting wise. I've also begun to sew my gifts for all my gal and church groups which is a version of the ornament shown below.  Because, it is that time of year after all.

  1. Pumpkin spice syrup looks good to me, not sure about the spam.

    Never really liked Judy Garland so I don't have that film on my list, but so far I've heard nothing but good things about the movie and Renee's part in it.

  2. I like my pumpkin in PIE! I bought a small one at Safeway and this year, the little guy likes it!! So I may be able to buy the Costco one for the same price.

    Many here have raved about the movie. I only know her from Wizard of Oz. But may see it.

    1. Yep, Im going to get a Marie Callendar because I like my pumpkin pie warm, warm, warm, with whipped cream (which I am allowed to have). Have not seen her version of a Star is born with James Mason or any of her musicals? They are all very, very good. The ornament is for my gals in my knitting group and such because we all need small things. I havent gotten much further in my planning, hope to this week.
