Is… is everyone out there okay? Y’all all right? You sure?
Guys, I don’t know what it is, but this week was friggin’ banana sandwich, I kid you not. Friday alone was a complete circus, and, as you can see, I didn’t even manage to get this post out actually on Friday. Hello, Sunday morning. Better late than never, though, right?
This weekend, the plan was: chores, painting (as in art, not household touch-ups), queuing up more posts for A-to-Z Challenge, and generally chilling (because I’ve earned it, dammit). So far I’ve stuck to that plan, though I still have a hell of a lot more chores to get through today.
This week, I’ve been using my well-earned chill time to sit back and enjoy:
I have legitimately had this song stuck in my head for three days, and I’m not complaining.
I am also super late in the game in terms of checking out the new Queer Eye – no, not the new season, just the show itself. I was a devout follower of the original show when I was young, and was excited to hear they were coming back with a reboot, but then just… never got around to catching it (consuming new media is hard for me… I will probably have to write about that at some point). Guys – the, like, three of you out there who also haven’t seen it – it is so good. It is just such a positive, happy, hopeful show. They are all about what works, what’s good about a person, and about accentuating and highlighting what’s already there – it’s basically less about a “makeover” and more about the “glo up,” you know?
For those of you who have seen Season 3 (which is what Netflix started me with; I’ve since put S3 on pause and gone back to Season 1), maybe y’all should order a bottle of Jone’s Sisters BBQ Sauce. That episode made me ugly cry.
Also, in what seems like the obligatory Dollar Tree entry: I’m a sucker for summer (reduced work schedule, warm weather, and both my birthday and anniversary!), margaritas, and cute glasses. So I loved seeing that DT was carrying these cactus-themed margarita glasses. They are adorable. If you’re into cactuses, this is actually a great time to check out DT; my thing lately has been mermaids (see: my downstairs bathroom), but I do have a soft spot for cacti, as well. DT has pencil holders, dish towels, and trinket trays.
I think that’s it for this week. Man, I need to be more on the ball about getting these out of Friday. Somehow, talking about all this on Sunday has just amplified my end-of-weekend-blues. Sigh. 19 days until Spring Break (15 days of actual work)? That’s something, right?
What’s keeping you afloat this week?
