One Lovely Mystery

one-lovely-blog-award-1.pngmysterybloggeraward.jpg

I’m making an exception to my never-having-time-to-do-tags anymore to do a tag by one of my favorite bloggers and friend, Mischenko. She has so graciously nominated me for both of these awards plus I like the title because I like to think I’m a lovely mystery on occasion. Anyway, thank you Mischenko. You obviously know how inspiring you are to me; especially when it gets me gifted with expensive blenders šŸ˜‰

Trip Takeaways

As you all probably know by now, the husband and I went on a little road trip this past weekend to visit my very pregnant friend whom I haven’t seen in years. It was a pretty chill weekend as she can’t move very much due to her load but I did learn a few things that I’ve decided to share with you all today.

Facebook Friday 9/1/17

Hey, hey! It’s Facebook Friday! It’s also the first day of September and if the weather today is any indication (50 degrees F), Autumn is right around the corner!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

Death By Chocolate

The following story may make you sad or it might make you laugh. Or maybe a little of both. Either way, before you proceed, here’s your warning that your reaction may be completely different from mine.

My place of work is in a rural part of NE Ohio. If you live in a rural area then you know 1) the only fast food place you’ll likely have nearby is McDonald’s and it’s going to be at least 3 or more miles away; 2) downtown is postage stamp size and 3) there are a lot of wild animals that like to make their appearance in or around your house not normally seen when you live near a city. There are other indicators that prove you live in a rural setting of course but those are the main three in my opinion.

Get To Know Me Tag

I haven’t done a tag in while (cause I just have way too many stories to tell) and I actually had a story lined up for today but I saw this tag floating around and I remember Patty tagging me a long time ago (sorry!) so I decided to join in the tag fun instead.

So I did not see a fun meme on Facebook this week or if I did it was NSFW (ha). For the screenshot portion of this post, I’m going to share my blog stats because I happened to log in on a cool comments number:

Excitement

I’m so excited!! This week is going to be so fantastic! I have a story I really want to share but I can’t until at least Wednesday. Make sure you check back in two days. Today, what I’m really excited about is that there is going to be a total solar eclipse! I’m lucky enough to live in the United States which has a path of totality mapped out. I’m also quite excited to be in a state that’s close to said path of totality. It will only be a partial solar eclipse but it’s 80% coverage and that’s still something to be excited about considering I don’t remember ever seeing one in my life!

There was a lot of anger and sadness surrounding social media this week. I made it a point to share things guaranteed to bring a smile to my friends faces in the hopes that they would take a few moments and not dwell on the hatred that’s occurring in the world. Two of the memes I shared were bookish themed this week. One is my dream job and the other, I’d just like to blow it up poster size on my wall or turn it into a giant blanket so I can point to the number when it applies to the situation:

This week I shared a cool bookcase quilt picture I saw on someone else’s page with the status asking if anyone was good at quilting because I need this. I’ve also been part of this Facebook event since Monday. It’s for an anthology that was just released on the 8th called Dominion Rising featuring 23 sci-fi/fantasy novels by 23 authors for $0.99. To celebrate, the authors have been doing giveaways on Facebook and getting the audience participating by having us posts GIFs to their questions. The one I responded to yesterday got a lot of likes so I decided to share it with you all. The question was to post your favorite geeky/nerdy sci-fi/fantasy meme. I’m a HUGEĀ Firefly fan so my meme was related to that. If you’ve never seenĀ Firefly, you should check it out. It only had one season of 19 amazing episodes with quite an awesome, adventurous space crew.
