Random Thoughts Wednesday
Hi. I’m coming up really dry on blog topics at the moment. I blame winter and my returning to my roots as a bear. But I wanted to write something today so you didn’t all think I disappeared into oblivion or something, so guess what? It’s going to be a random thought post! Dun dun dunnnnnn. (That’s my ominous music impression if you didn’t catch that). Think of it like Deep Moments with Jack Handy from Saturday Night Live. Hopefully mine make more sense. No promises though!
I really do not enjoy being cold. I know you’re all like “duh”. But seriously, cold weather is just not my friend. I like having snow for Christmas but now that it’s over, I’m pretty much over winter. It doesn’t help that we were teased with lovely warmer weather while we were in St. Louis. However, I couldn’t imagine living anywhere other than Minnesota. My heart is here for ever. Cold weather and all.
Now that we have taken our beekeeping course and are planning to get our own bees next summer, I’m kind of obsessed with all things bee. I found the cutest sweater on Poshmark that has a bee with a crown (like Queen Bee) and I had to have it. I recently bought a necklace that has some bee charms. Who am I becoming?
I’ve been listening to a ton of music I enjoyed when I was younger. I made a playlist on Spotify I’m calling “Middle School Mixtape.” It has Amy Grant, Paula Abdul, Debbie Gibson, Ace of Base and some random one hit wonders I found (anyone remember a song called Dreams by a singer named Gabrielle? No? Just me? Yeah). I wouldn’t go back to being that age again for anything, but I tell you, these jams also make me super nostalgic, kind of in a good way. I’m not old. Nope.
We’re finally getting Ollie interested in movies. We’ve seen a couple in the theater but getting him to sit down at home and watch one has not been the easiest task. While it was cold and snowy and gross over the weekend we finally convinced him to have a movie afternoon with us. We watched Moana and he loved it. Totally worth having the songs stuck in my head all week. We’re making a list of other movies to see now. Pass the popcorn. Movies go along nicely with my hibernation mood.
A stream of consciousness type post has not been as easy to write as I thought it would be! I think things are just so status quo and on an even keel right now that there just isn’t much even going on in my brain. This is really not a bad thing and maybe I shouldn’t even say it out loud because I don’t want to jinx it. And really, I think I just shared more of a what’s new post instead of a random thoughts post. But it’s my blog and I’ll write what I want I guess! Anyway, that’s it. Hopefully I’ll have some more exciting content soon.
How’s your January going?
