Happy Fri-Yay Funday Y’all!
No this isn’t a new poetry form. We all leave that to our friend David Alexander over at Skeptic’s Kaddish who blows the socks off poetry, as he is literally making his own form from A-Z right now. The man has a mind of a steel trap and I’d say too much time on his hands, but we all know that’s not true with his career, family life, faith and blogosphere growth. He’s fast approaching 6,000 followers and I was ahead of him at one time. WOW. Congrats David. So, if you want to have some real fun, go visit him.
In the meantime, I’m cracking the whip and on schedule to have bedrooms, a laundry room and a shared Jack and Jill Bathroom ready for when “the kids” come home on the 23rd. First we complained of no heat, and now we’ve been frying for 4 days with the heat turned up to 90 degrees, to get the sheet rock to dry but no complaints about that.
These guys have rocked it on the instal. Sheet rock is being sanded, painting starts today and Saturday, floor tiling Monday, electrical by Thursday when the washer/dryer and fridge arrive… ok, you get the picture. We’re building bed frames as we speak, I ordered Redi Shades Blackout. Not pretty but for 10 bucks each, they’ll do the job for now. Apparently, they’re window treatments that you cut to size and stick in the window frame. Wild. We shall see.In the meantime, I’m cracking the whip which seems to be working so far around here and I haven’t gotten any letters from my attorney yet or police visits… YES, I’m kidding.
A fun fact and question: Who believes we used to sleep with a pig in the bottom of our bed under our sheets? If you guessed yes, you’re right. Her name was Jewels and she was a gift for xmas for our daughter.
Sizzle, Drip and Dry
Pigs in a blanket frying
And this is a wrap on the project until the final hoorah… which will be the xmas I’ve been dreaming of, I hope. I’ll share the completion with you when everyone’s gets here and try to capture their reaction. Fingers crossed. 🤞🏻
I just had to share this video from Saturday Night Live which you may have already seen but I laughed out loud when I saw it. If you are really sick right now or have been, you may want to skip it as you might not find it funny but it’s a true scenario I’m seeing. a lot right now.
Have a great Friday and weekending and remember to find everyday moments that make you laugh or at least sigh and take your breath away.
Happy Fri-Yay Funday, Cindy. Looks like everything is moving nicely along, yayyy. BTW – I’m craving pigs in a blanket now and I am not even much of a meat eater.💕🤣💕
Thanks so much Grace! NOK on wood it is!!! I have to go call the contrator now.. it’s awfully quiet right now 🤣 I know me too and I don’t generally eat them either but my friend makes them every year at xmas .. 🤪💗
The SNL clip made me giggle! You aren’t allowed to take a covid vacay now though, keep cracking the whip and can’t wait to see the pics once finished! 🎄🎅🎄
I know me too. I actually loved with it was just the 6 of us.. what can I say. so much work but we have fun. Yes indeed, you can count on that my friend. Thanks a lot. 🎄🧑🏼🎄
Good luck, Cindy, with your project!
Thanks Joanna! ❣️
Haha, haven’t seen this video in years! But I know all of the words 🙂 Maggie
too funny Maggie.. you’ve been in spam.. ugh ❤️
Love the sunny windows and the green views, Cindy! I am sure your finished project will be lovely, and I wish you and your family a beautiful holiday! <3
Thanks Cheryl, that is a highlight of all of the rooms here for sure. I’m sure it will be. Thank you so much and I hope you have a wonderful one as well. Hope everything is going well. Haven’t seen you post as of late. Hope your project is moving along well. 💗
Cracking the whip? Yes, sometimes it works, or rather it only works. Hope everything is going well now as per your revised schedule. Good luck, Cindy, and have a great weekend 🎉💐💖
Oh not really but i can’t let up for a minute or things get dropped. Same as the early bird gets the worm. You have a great one as well KK. Thanks for being here. 💗
You’re always welcome, Cindy 💖💐
Girllllll, I am over here dying of laughter! 🤣😝😂 Ok, so you guys had Peppa Pig sleeping with you? Whatever happened to the pig, or is it safe to ask??? 🐷🐖🐷 Does the “pig in a blanket” references your pig’s demise? 😲 Applause to David. I will have to check his site out. Oh, what fun it is to ride on a one-horse open house! 🏡 I don’t know how you do it girl.
And oh what a FUN way to end your FUNday FRIday with “Whip It,” and that SNL skit! The one thing about it Cindy, there is NEVER a dull moment in your house dawwwwlinkkkkk!!! Enjoy the rest of your evening and weekend, my super hero friend! 🐱🏍 Hugs and smooches. 🥰💖😍
I;m sooooo glad you get me as I was LMBO too! I was hoping no one asked this…. 😥. or is it safe to ask??? 🐷🐖🐷 🥲. We named her jewels and we even took her an got her ear pierced. She was in the parades as school and she wore a sarong. The vet said she was the best pig and to keep her thin . She would start eating all of the garden so we put her in the barn. omg Kym.. let’s just say she got too thin. it’s still a tragedy. I can’t even say what happened to her. 🥲😳😪
You’ll like David for sure.
Aren’t you one step ahead always:
“Oh, what fun it is to ride on a one-horse open house! 🏡” hahaha. it’s so true. Never dull for sure here. You have a great one too my dear friend! 💞
Thanks for the great conversation and your oh so positive vibe Cindy. My goodness, poor Jewels. You should have taken a cue from Miss Piggy and not the vet. Kermit didn’t have a problem with her weight! 🐸🐷🐸 LOL
My dawwwwlinkkkkk, have yourself a FANtabulous evening and relaxing weekend. You deserve a break today. Hugs and smooches! 😊💖😘
“Always Positive” 😂 Progress! Whip it good 🎶 dear Cindy, and have a wonderful weekend ❣️😙

Hi Cindy, I am so glad you house is coming along so well. You are doing well with your whip cracking.
