Blogging buddy Bathwater shared this idea for a post update and I decided to use it today because it's better than me talking about how much I currently hate sports (because all of my teams suck) or the weather outside is going to be frightful where I live for the next few days or how I let the things that I just mentioned put me in a bad mood.
Hope you are well, thanks for swinging by my corner of the internet and I will talk to you soon.
- Listening = Five Finger Death Punch. Rocking out to close out the year.
- Reading = Currently, the only thing I am reading is lots and lots of content on Reddit. It has become a nightly ritual before I call it a day. I mostly get sucked into /idiotsincars and /publicfreakout.
- Watching = The English, on Amazon Prime.
- Creating = Fudge. During my break from drinking, I knew I would pick up a different hobby or two but I never thought it would be making fudge. I think Peg planted the seed when she mentioned making it using only three ingredients so that inspired me. I have made four batches and my favorite has been the peanut butter fudge.
- Hoping = For decent enough weather over the holiday break so we can get out and enjoy some winter activities.
- Buying = Kleenex because those tissues have become enemy #1 to Lucy the basset hound.
- Loving = Some of the conversations that Mrs. Shife and I have.
- Planning = On seeing "Cocaine Bear" as soon as it hits theaters.
- Missing = Ted. He was a wonderful English Cream Retriever that we watched for a few months while his family moved to a different state. Such a good boy and we instantly fell in love with him. He is part of the reason why we thought we could become a two-dog family. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and died quite suddenly. He wasn't even 5 yet.
Rest in peace, Teddy.
- Feeling = Like 2022 went by way too fast. Hard to believe it is going to be 2023 soon.
I will persevere.
I will keep moving forward.
I will be the stream.
I'd never heard of Five Finger Death Punch. I didn't realize there were still heavy metal bands around. They are coming to St. Louis in November 2023 and for $500 I can get down on the field... or not.ReplyDelete
Yikes. I don't like them that much.Delete
It is very bad news that Lucy has decided tissues are her mortal enemy at the same tiem that it seems as everyone and their cousins are fighting one respiratory virus after another. Her timing is doggone impeccable.ReplyDelete
The tissue war continues, Debby. She is still seeking them out like her little basset butt depends on it.Delete
Never heard of that band or the show. So much I don't know! I DO know about my teams sucking and nasty forecasts, although yours probably has ours beat. Hope you can do some fun stuff in spite of that. 2022 seems like it should be the new year. I'm not ready for 2023.ReplyDelete
Peanut Butter Fudge sounds dee-lish.ReplyDelete
I agree about conversations with the spouse; I love, and live for, those.
It wasn't too shabby, BobDelete
I went out with my girls and they were SMITTEN with Cocaine Bear. I was like, really? The title is literally all there is to that movie, I bet! But they're obsessed.
And I love that you love your convos with Ms.Shife! awwww
Lol, I guess people really do take their phones into the bathroom! I waste waaaay too much time on a Reddit at night. You can find me obsessing about my health at r/prediabetes which is why I’ll have to skip the fudge 😔ReplyDelete
I feel lost without my phone in the bathroomDelete
Downloaded: Being Funny in a Foreign Language by the 1975 - my new fav. I love fudge! Does Lucy just kill the Kleenex, or does she eat some too? Biggie will eat them, and paper towels. Clean up is a cinch.ReplyDelete
She rips them as well as eats them, Dave R.Delete
I hope you have lots of winter adventure weather. By the time it reaches Ohio, it will be quite mild.ReplyDelete
We mostly took advantage of the winter weather by swimming inside at the YDelete
I would like to place an order for a pound of peanut butter fudge. Please.ReplyDelete
Lucy! No! One of my cats finds toilet paper to be his arch nemesis. Le sigh.ReplyDelete
Big le sighDelete
You had me at Cocaine Bear.ReplyDelete
You are awesome, Ed.Delete
Good to see the meme lives on. Hope you get that good weather.ReplyDelete
It finally arrived, BathwaterDelete
Nellie used to meticulously take out one Kleenex at a time and tear it up and eat most of it. I said that she would be wiping herself from the inside out, ha. Hope you enjoy the snow, those days are long gone for me.ReplyDelete
Snow is all gone now so I need to find something else to complain aboutDelete
I'm glad you like the 3 ingredient fudge recipe. I've mixed choc and peanut butter chips and I admit I prefer that over just peanut butter but hubby likes just pb chips. Hey fudge is good no matter what kind. It's like pizza, even bad pizza is good. :-)ReplyDelete
Can confirm. Thanks again for planting the seed, Peg.Delete
I avoid Reddit like the plague because once I get sucked in I can hardly tear myself away! If you are in the mood to be creeped out, try searching "Whats the scariest thing your kid ever said to you"? on Reddit.ReplyDelete
I am going to take you up on that offer, Jeanette.Delete
Fudge sounds good and we're getting that extreme cold next week!ReplyDelete
Yay for fudgeDelete
I like your post update idea. I may use it as I have no original ideas of my own.ReplyDelete
Look forward to reading it, JM.Delete
My s-i-l likes FFDP but I couldn't tell you anything they do. I'm still listen to too much music from the 80s. The only reading I'm doing right now is trying catch up on some blogs. We watch wayyy too many shows. One we just finished, The White Lotus. I love conversations with my husband!ReplyDelete
Your SIL has excellent taste. I really enjoyed this season of "The White Lotus."Delete
For some reason, my last comment went thru as anonymous. ? Last blog I tried to comment on, it wouldn't go at all. No wonder I am out of blogland so long, can't figure out the glitches in technology. LOLReplyDelete

I really like Five Finger Death Punch. I've had them as the favorite song of the week on Saturdays a few times.ReplyDelete
And they are from your neck of the woods.Delete
The bluetick-beagle mix we had when I was growing up loved tissues too. She used to steal them from people's pockets and my mother's purse. Maybe it's a hound thing. We always thought it was funny but just an individual quirk.ReplyDelete
Making fudge is a good life skill to have. Fudge makes a good gift for any occasion, it's good for a bake sale contribution, and it's good enough to be a fancy dessert! Good for you :)
Thanks, jenny_o. I am pausing from the fudge making this month to help out my waistline.Delete
I'm having problems commenting here.ReplyDelete
Google likes to be difficult sometimes.Delete
Oh I think it went through that time. I was going to say that my partner brought me back some fudge from Dubai last week and it tasted good. I looked at the tin and it said "Made in Scotland". Had to grin. The weather here in the UK is crap here too, anybody would think it was winter or something.ReplyDelete
I will have to check out the fudge from Scotland to see if they make it any differently.Delete
"Cocaine Bear" is destined to be a cult classic, I'm sure!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't be too upset about thatDelete
