I'm zero focused today because I've got a case of the wiggle worms. It's a serious condition brought on by eating too many candy canes on the Friday before Christmas. I'm told, there is no cure and that I just have to ride it out.
Symptoms include ...
Inability to focus on edits.
Not being able to sit still long enough to edit.
Not wanting to edit and ...
Velcro-ing elf ears on the pups.
If you see someone with this rabid condition, do not approach the subject. Warning, do not approach. Subject is armed with Christmas lights and considered dangerous.
I'm pooped. I spent today (it's Wednesday night as I write this), editing my eyes are burning. Tomorrow, I'm unplugging for the day and I'm finally gonna dealing with the tools. We have a second bathtub, we don't use. So we store stuff in there. Well, it's time for the circular saw and drills to say goodbye until spring.
In other news, I tossed a bunch of un-peeled onions in an air fryer and guess what I ended up with? A chutney/relish spicy goodness. If you fancy onions, please have a look.
PS: Friday Question. Guess how many times I've used my new Vitamix so far?
Three dead spiders and a cup of pickle juice is you get it wrong. Two snowballs and cupcake if you get it right. Only thing is, I'm not gonna tell ya' what I made the cupcake out of.
My new Vitamix is almost here and I'm jumping out of my skin. Tim just texted me an image of the box (he's in town during his work day and picked the Vitamix up at the post). He should be home soon. My first Vitamix!
OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG.
In other news, apologies for taking too long answer everyone back from last Thursday. I like to do it within 24-48 hours.
In other, OTHER news, I went to Wally and bought all the same clothes to wear throughout the entire winter. If you want to hear more about it, I've dropped the short podcast link below. It's the cast titled, Fred Flintstone by The Happy Whisk.
I tell ya, it's only day one of it but so far, I love it. Gonna try it for the full winter to see how it goes. And that means, this weekend, I get to ditch all my ratty old, badly beaten up, hole-filled, food/paint-stained clothes.
Hey Boogerbutts! I don't know what to do with this space? I'm lost and mildly frustrated.
The idea was to turn this into a central location for everything, blogs, MeWe, videos, podcasts... but that doesn't feel right either. So, I'm just gonna come back to blogging for now until I figure it out.
In other news, it's a beautiful snow-filled day outside but not so cold that my toes freeze to the fabric of my socks. So that's a plus. And in other, OTHER news, I'm podcasting and I freakin' love it. My last cast is about how I protect my creativity. If that topic interests you, please have a listen.
It's been awhile and here's why. I've been working behind the scenes, followed by a 10-day staycation but also, I don't enjoy my blog space, anymore. Since I don't like my page, I don't come here. My blog feels cluttered, cramped, crowded, and useless, but in real life that's not how I feel. And since this blog has always been a mirror of my life - it's time to fix this space to reflect that.
So, I'm shutting down my blog to rebuild her. We have the technology (Bionic Woman reference - I still own/watch that show and love it!).
This space may show an invite only notice, but that's NOT true. It'll be shut down for everyone until I rebuild. You'll still be able to reach me on email.
Thanks for being a part of my old life. But now, it's time for me to blow this sucker up and start fresh.
Hello Gang! I don't know about you but this past weekend I was pooped, pooped, pooped. I slept most of Saturday. But on Friday, Tim took off and we saw Avengers. That was fun. No spoilers. Just gonna say, I LOVE superhero movies.
In other news, Tim and I start our free month trial for a new podcast host. I had no idea we needed one. So much to learn, but that's a good thing.
It's about midnight here. Tim just finished writing. I'm back from the market and tomorrow, I get to make pasta sauce with tinned tomatoes that I got from Big Lots. Never tried them before but I'm excited to give them a go. Then for the weekend, Stromboli!!!! Yeah, baby.
And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print. I'm off to my coffin soon. Zzzzz....
It's Sunday and we're outside because when it's warm, we lug our kitchen table to the back deck. The kitchen has sliding doors so it's super easy. But I'm not here to talk about sliding doors. Nope nope. I've got news!
Last Friday, I recorded my first podcast and soon I'll be on iTunes. It's been about 2 years post declutter, and I celebrated by doing a podcast. Also, 2 years and NOTHING has grown back.
How about them apples?
The answer to last week is cinnamon rolls. Winners select their own prizes but next week, it's back to things that ooze, rot and smell bad. You're welcome!
As always, MUCH THANKS for your time and boogie boogie, babies!
This is my new laundry space and I love it. For those of you who don't already know, back in 2016 I did what Norma dubbed, The Great Declutter of 2016 - in which I ditched 95 percent of my stuff. Including cupboards that were too high and/or that I just hated.
And, since I won't be around Friday, let's toss in a WHAT AM I? Tell us what this is and win the prize of your choice.
That's right. This is a once in a blogtime offer. Pick your own prize. Dead bugs, rotten pickles and toe nail clippings are still available upon request.
Taken with my macro lens for mobile devices. The kit also came with a wide screen lens and a few other goodies. Total price: 30 bucks. BUT, I had points so all I paid was the tax - the product shipped, FREE.
In other new, after MANY tries, I couldn't get the baker's rack to work in my lab. So... this past weekend, I moved said rack into the laundry area. Now I have a place to fold and hold cleaning supplies. Where with the other shelf, it just held supplies. I think... think... just maybe... this might be the winner.
And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print. Be back next Tuesday, the 17th.
Yesterday, I was all kinds of behind. For about four seconds, I wanted to skip my YouTube deadline. But that's not how this works. Unless I'm dealing with a health issue that has me to be couch-bound, I gotta work.
But I'm not gonna lie, I did a happy dance when I was DONE!
Guess what? I hit 20,000 views and I'm OVER THE MOON. In two months I went from 10K to 20K. Not too shabby for a newbie.
BIG THANKS, to those who helped me reach 20K - Extra gross prizes for you this week.
Name this chef and win three jars of BBQ sauce, two empty tin cans and a kilo of pebbles. Bonus Round: To win a cellar filled with butterflies, tell me what the items in the first picture have in common with each other.
Each new season means a fun challenge and for Spring, I pick jogging. I miss the meditation and effort that comes with getting to the half-marathon mark. Second half-marathon, here I come.
In other news, it's Monday night. Tim's gaming with the guys, the pups are crunching bones and I'm at the kitchen table listening to Bon Jovi's, Knockout. I haven't jogged to it yet, but you can bet your front teeth, that's what I'll be doing first thing Tuesday morning.
Hey Guys! I'm shooting for a weekly blog post with an optional Friday Question. I've tried this before and failed but I want to give it another go. I like how Alex posts once a week and how Christine, Jo and William post at midnight and 1:00 am, consistently. So I'm stealing from you four.
Speaking of FQ. It was, Chocolate Chia Pudding. I never noticed the strawberry until I read the comments so, a round of stinky socks for everyone.
Hello Boogerbutts! Happy Weekend. Tim's got three days off and I'm so hungry that I could eat all the onion petals in the house. In case you haven't heard, I love my air fyer oven. Been playing with onion petals, rings and such, more on that another time. I'm just hungry.
The red wall is going, going, going!
PS: Here's a great deal on organic herbs @ Wally's. I LOVE rollbacks. See 4 minute video for the herbs and to say goodbye the wall.
Even after decluttering to the tune of 95 percent, I'm still stuck in limbo when it comes to my lab aka, kitchen. But once we demo the cupboards, I'll be able to make my industrial work space with major focus on shooting videos. Lots and lots and LOTS of videos. But until then, limbo it is.
If you want to see my hot mess, check the vlog below.
In other news, we have a 3-day weekend coming up and I REALLY, REALLY want to be well enough to go to the restaurant store.
So ... my kitchen is all moved around again. The baker's rack which I use as a filming bench, is sorta working and sorta not. I still don't have a home for my cookery and bake books. BUT .... none of this (including being sick), has stopped me from shooting video.
Which I flippin' love doing.
I gotta get my face in front of the camera, if I want my channel to keep growing. Having a face, helps. But I'm still too chicken shit.
Meanwhile, check it out. Air-fry potatoes for breakfast. No oil. No preheat. Look at that golden colour. Want to know my secret? It's turmeric. Oh my yum!
And now ... I'm gonna make a cuppa and get back to tinkering in the lab. I think if I move the spices, that might help.
Much Thanks for your help the other day with blogger vs wordpress. Even with my hosting package (which I think we're dropping), it doesn't sound like WP is for me. On about a million levels. Thanks bunches for the help.
In other news, it's Sunday here. I'm still sick. It's our last day off and ... I made MY FIRST longer, how-to video. Check it out if you have time. The views, comments, likes, subs and shares help rank me as a YouTuber and are much appreciated.
Thanks again for the help the other day.
Catch you guys during the week!
