Now I Lame Me Down to Sleep

I don’t really have anything to make a post about today. I just now sat here trying to think of a quote or saying or something that I could slip “lame” into for Lame Post Friday, and finally came up with the above title. I was thinking about going to bed soon. However, it is earlier than I thought it was. Additionally, I like to make a blog post.

Mmmmm… wine…

Yes, I am enjoying a glass of white wine. I found the above picture in my Media Library. I have not seen wine from Domhnall Vineyard in a long time. I hope they are still in business. I loved their Baco Noir. As for that picture, it looks like the glass has water and novelty ice cubes in it, the kind with fake bugs. I can’t really tell and am not sure how to research the matter.

Ah yes, snow.

I add a wintery picture for good measure. We got a goodly amount of snow earlier this week. I walked to work a couple of times, sometimes in the road, which was slightly more clear than the sidewalk. Today was mostly cold, so that was alright to drive in.

No, it’s not Sunday; this was the easiest logo to find.

I am currently looking at an episode of Snapped. I truly cannot get enough murder and mayhem.

I just thought of a better title for today’s post: “Don’t Wine About the Snow; Watch Some TV!” It does not use the word “lame,” but I feel sure my readers would get the idea. No matter. I have made some semblance of a blog post. I feel reasonably content. Happy Friday, all.

Fresh as a Nosegay on Lame Post Friday

At work today, I told a couple of co-workers about the Recency Romance I read where the heroine had a glass of wine with dinner and felt “fresh as a nosegay.” I believe I have mentioned that in this space as well.

“So sometimes I say to my husband, ‘Dear, will you bring me a glass of wine so I can feel fresh as a nosegay?’ ” I said. I had to tell one co-worker that a nosegay is a small bouquet.

Me, feeling fresh as a nosegay.

That is not me at home, but you get the idea.

By the way, this is indeed Lame Post Friday, so I am just going to make a few silly remarks, then hit Publish and watch a DVR’d episode of Svengoolie.

He’s our date.

Right now we are watching Snapped, and before that a couple of episodes of Forensic Files. There is nothing like starting your Friday night with a little murder and mayhem!

We are not drinking our wine out of coffee mugs.

Ooh! Ooh! I just realized: the Snapped we are watching concerns a case we saw recently on Forensic Files! I love it when that happens! I am having a very enjoyable Friday night. I hope you are feeling fresh as a nosegay yourself.

Snapped to Svengoolie to Snapped

This has not been a blogworthy Sunday. I spent a good portion of the morning dithering about what best to do. Finally I put in a load of laundry and went for a run (one of my few instances of multi-tasking). I went to the grocery store. I fixed dinner (late lunch, early supper). And I watched TV and crocheted.

Um, the one we’re watching right now is not so new.

Of course, Sunday and Snapped go together. Just ask the folks at Oxygen. I just loves me some murder and mayhem. I alternately crocheted and cooked while we watched. When I was done running out to the kitchen, we put on a DVR’d Svengoolie.

He’s so cool.

We saw Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman starring Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi, among others.

I don’t think the original release was a Castle film, was it?

I want to start doing my movie write-ups again. They did not get as much blogger love as other posts (I am a well-known Like junkie), but I so enjoyed writing them. Perhaps I will see what I can come up with for Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman. At least it will be a change from Why I Can’t Make a Blog Post.

I see I am over 200 words. Phew! It is nice to meet the standard. And I am in time to watch this week’s So New episode of Snapped. Happy Sunday, everyone.

I Take a Break from Murder

Can you feel the sexual tension?

I glance down from the movie to my Tablet to make my blog post. It is Double Indemnity, a favorite of ours. Before that we looked at several episodes of Snapped, most of which dealt with a woman killing her husband. Do you sense a pattern here?

I could use a cup of coffee.

I searched through my Media Library for the picture of Double Indemnity. I did not feel like doing the same for a Snapped logo, so I went to Facebook and found the above photo. Steve and I have plenty of coffee mugs, but I would not say no to one of those.

As you may guess, I do not have much to talk about today. I did not spend the day following my advice from yesterday of Do Something, Anything. I went running, so at least I got some exercise. And now I have made some semblance of a blog post. I guess I’ll call this a Wrist to Forehead Sunday Post and drive on.

I hope to see you all again on Monstrous Monday.

It’s Not COVID!

Although that would make me relevant to current headlines, wouldn’t it? See, you can find an upside to anything. My upside right now is, it is just a cold, it will be over soon. My downside is, this will be another not very good blog post. But as regular readers know, I like to post every day, so let’s see what I can come up with.

I haven’t reached mine yet, but stay tuned.

I have been spending most of the weekend watching Snapped on Oxygen. Today is the Greed Marathon. Earlier this week was the Ex-Best Friends Marathon. They probably had a different marathon every day, because they were working up to some landmark episode, but alas, I did not make a note of them.

“You’re sick? Get back!”

 

I have long bought into the mentality that when you’re sick, you have to just keep going as best you can.  Of course, there have been times when I said, no, dammit, I need to take a day to nurse myself!  But I never thought too much about keeping my germs to myself.  In my defense, my bosses were not too worried about it either.  “Get yourself in here! You have to work!”  is what a distressing number of them said.

But the times they are a-changing, as the song goes.  I feel sick?  I am doing the right thing to stay home alone and watch Snapped!  However, as my headline says, it is not COVID.  I took my temperature, and I don’t have most of the symptoms. This is good news for me.  I should feel fine in another day or so.  Then I will be out of the house,  on job seeking and bloggable adventures!   As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.

 

Would Svengoolie Like My Container Garden?

He is fine, yes!

So far the highlight of my day was watching a DVR’d episode of Svengoolie.  How I went so many years of my life without this show… Oh well, I can watch it now.

However, I do not mean to make my blog post about Svengoolie, nor yet Snapped, which I have also been enjoying this Sunday.  Still, I have mentioned them.  Will that qualify this as a Non-Sequitur Sunday Post?  I hope so.

Svengoolie, Snapped and Susan!

When I began to realize I had almost nothing to say on a blog post, I went outside to take a picture of my Brown-eyed Susans, which are still growing prolifically.  I put the bucket in front of them earlier to prop them up, as they had begun to droop.  I guess it is a little unsightly.  I’ll have to come up with something else .

Pretty!

Next I went put front for a shot of my Johnny Jump-ups.  Aren’t they doing well?  I took another picture while I was at it.

An unknown plant.

You can’t really see this one very well.  I have no idea what it is, but it started growing where my peonies were after I cut them down.  I decided to let it live.  I’ll let you know if it amounts to anything.

I can only eat so much pesto, after all.

Back on the deck, I got a shot of my put of control basil.  I have not made as good use of it as I may have.  I wonder if I can dry it and use it this winter.

Not the most visually appealing display.

I took a picture of a couple other plants that were doing well.  My container garden is not as beautiful as I would like.  If I swept the deck and rearranged the pots, it would help.  However, as it becomes increasingly obvious that I will host no gatherings in the foreseeable future, I have become discouraged.

However, one must not give in to discouragement.  On the brighter side, I made my Sunday Post on Sunday.  And it wasn’t a Wrist to Forehead Sunday.  I’m going to call that a win.

 

By the Way, I’m Watching Snapped

It is that moment on a Sunday when I have to make a blog post or miss a day.  That is why I call it Wrist to Forehead Sunday, when I would prefer to swoon upon a handy chaise lounge, dramatically posed, because it is all Just Too Much.  We all know I am something of a drama queen.  I embrace it.

I have not personally reached my own breaking point, I hope.

It has not been an especially heinous Sunday.  The temperature is too warm for my liking, but you’ll have that in August.  I have Snapped on the television and a glass of wine handy, which a Facebook meme assures me is appropriate for the day.

But this is how I feel.

Here is my skeleton Bonita, striking a dramatic pose.  Looking at her, I wonder if I should not go back on the South Beach Diet.  Points to ponder.

Don’t whine! Wine!

This is obviously not August, as I am far too warmly dressed.  However, I thought I would include a cheerier picture.  I don’t spend my entire Sunday swooning around, lamenting the imminent return of Monday.  For one reason, I am grateful I have a job to go to tomorrow, so just don’t start with me, you Just Be Thankful Thats (you know who you are)!

In any case, I see I am over 200 words.  Happy Sunday, everyone!

 

Salsa and Snapped on Wrist to Forehead Sunday

And so it is time for my Wrist to Forehand Sunday post.  For anyone just tuning in, this is the day I swoon, dramatically posed with the back of one wrist to my forehead, because it is all Just Too Much for me.  My only regret is that I do not have a chaise lounge to swoon upon.

Full disclosure:  I have never actually swooned in my life, and things have so far never been Just Too Much for me.  OK, sometimes I have felt they were, but yet, here we are.  So anyways, let’s get on with the blog post.

A great place for produce!

One of the few useful things I did today was to drive to Little Falls to AW Greenhouse Gardens for a red onion.  I wanted it to make some salsa with the rest of the Roma tomatoes I got there last week.  I also impulse bought some blackberries.  It is the end of their season.

I did make the salsa, adding to the day’s usefulness.  Earlier I had gone running and done a few more household chores, so one could argue that I am not so useless after all.  However, I am no hand at argument.

One could argue that this is a creepy image.

Under the heading The Devil Made Me Do It, I was scrolling through my Media Library looking for a Snapped logo and came across this picture of Nosferatu that I really wanted to share.  Does it fit with today’s post?  Discuss amongst yourselves.

Here is a Snapped logo!

We have been watching Snapped for most of the day.  I just can’t get enough of True Crime.

At least he is wearing the same shirt today.

I wanted to end on a picture featuring a glass of wine, because I have been enjoying a sip or two today.  This is my husband Steven at the Waterfront Grille in Herkimer, NY.  It may even have been a Sunday.

No matter.  Today is Sunday.  Let us all relax.  I may even have another glass of wine.

 

I’m Hot for Snapped

I myself have not snapped. Yet.

Our part of Herkimer County is under a heat advisory:  oppressive humidity with heat index into triple digits. Yes, yes, I know: folks in southern states experience worse and more often.  Hey, I lived in Georgia for a while; I’ve experienced these things.  I could still be a heat injury in New York State.

I knew we would spend most of the afternoon lounged near fans, watching television.  I did manage a nice, long run this morning.  I got out there right around sunrise, and it was 79 degrees already.  Or was it 69?  I did note down the number at the time.

Mostly we have been watching Snapped.  According to Oxygen, Sundays were made for SnappedSnapped and a glass of wine, says one meme I saw.  Full disclosure: I am forgoing the wine today, in pursuit of my weight loss goals.  I enjoy Snapped just as much without it.

It is a Scorned Lovers Marathon.  This is what I like:  a nice, personal murder for a good reason, like jealousy or greed.  Sometimes both motives are at play.  Good times.  Yes, my tastes are macabre.  Is that a problem?

So this is my Wrist to Forehead Sunday Post,  just a little rattling on about some True Crime television during a heat wave.  At least I am over 200 words.  Happy Sunday, and keep cool!
