Baby Yoda

Before the pandemic hit Baby Yoda was super popular (and still is of course). Luckily I had per-ordered some very cute figures, and they arrived in the middle of the stay at home recommendations. So of course I had to attempt to make a meme with one.

Baby Yoda meme

For whatever reason, the internet decided that Baby Yoda would love chicken nuggets. Even though we never saw a single nugget in The Mandalorian. LOL. However, since I also love chicken nuggets, I fully embrace this meme.

It’s been awhile

I decided to take a big break from blogging because there was so much happening offline that needed my attention. I have missed sharing here, and hope to come back more often. And I have really missed the blogging community! I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging.

What a crazy year we are having, huh? Hopefully we have been able to take a breather and see which things matter most to us. For me connecting with other people is high on the list, and that includes friends from far and near via the online space too.

Not much got done in the garden or house this year since we were on home isolation. A lot of garden centers were offering curbside pick up, but since we care for some very high risk family members we haven’t even done things like that. I miss getting take out now and then, and am so tired of all the recipes I know how to make. Time to try some new ones.

How has this year been for you? I heard a phrase that really stuck out to me, we are all in the same storm, but we aren’t in the same boat. I’m sure the events of this year are felt very differently depending on circumstances. It’s important for us to remember that, and try to react with love and kindness first. We sure do need it.

A fun craft night with Canary Jane

Social media is so funny sometimes. A gal that I have known online for a long time had an event recently and it was the first time we got a chance to meet in person. Even though we live in the same county. It’s just like that sometimes, isn’t it? Anyway, her blog is Canary Jane, so please hop on over and check out her post about the evening. She has more photos that I do.

It was fun to have a little girls night out, and practice drawing leaves. The end result was a wreath around a quote. I picked the quote below, as it so often fits life. We are having fun, and later those are the best memories. Here is my finished wreath:

She is planning to do more craft nights in the future too, so if you are local and those kinds of things are up your alley, but sure to follow her blog for announcements.

Farewell 2017, welcome 2018

It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone. Time sure does go fast, and it seems to be speeding up each year.

I used to pick a single word as a theme for the coming year. Looking back in my archives here, it seems I haven’t done so since 2011. Oops!

I haven’t given it much thought for 2018, and to be honest I am not sure that I will choose one. The whole holiday season kind of snuck up on us this year, as we were busy dealing with the craziness of life and doing things like replacing my car, and sadly, also our HVAC system. Oh yes, after 20 years driving Rhonda the Honda, it was finally time for a new car.

Also, I have noticed that I tend to forget about my theme word a few months into the year anyway. Perhaps it’s just too rigid? It’s more enjoyable to take the days as they come, and not try to force so much into it, but just let it be what it is.

I do think I might start sharing here more often again though… just for fun. No sponsors, no traffic goals. Back to “the good old days” so to speak, when blogging was about connecting with other people.
