Thursday Thoughts - I got that sunshine in my pocket got that good soul in my feet

Anticipating: Girls weekend this weekend.

Feeling: Because this is the part of summer I love the most - the build up.

Sleeping: Like a freaking rock. This week has been primo sleeping weather.
Trying: A bigger crate for Bruce at the shore. I am going to pimp it out like something on MTV Cribs. Thanks to Lori for loaning it and to Dawn for delivering it. And to Bruce for considering it? Maybe?
Wanting to know what the fuck is happening with blogger comments. They say they're fixing them but it's been well over a week. No fix.

Choosing: Kindle First books - The Thinnest Air for me this month. Do you do Kindle First books?

Reading: Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman, which just came out this week - I have it from Netgalley. I'm picking up I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer from the library today. Show Us Your Books is Tuesday!

Eating: Last night I arrived to the shore hangry so I ordered a bunch of food. Then I ate 8790 cheesy poofs and when the food arrived, none of the food. That's a little how my food life has been going lately. My prep  has been off so my eating has too. I'm not in the groove of prepping either at the shore or on Monday at home yet. I need to get back into that.

Raging: trump saying he can pardon himself and not a damn person in Congress standing against that - is everyone familiar with the rule of law or do people not know what that is and what an oath to protect the Constitution means?; Senator Jeff Merkley not being allowed into the children jails the US is now running; everything about the Gestapo - you might call them ICE; trump attacking the Philadelphia Eagles who are by and large great community members. Although this article trump Goes to War With Philly; Immediately Loses made me laugh. Don't fuck with Philly. And to those saying keep the politics off the field, wanting equal treatment under the law no matter what color your skin is is not fucking politics. It's humanity and equality and civil rights and social justice and fuck, GET.ON.BOARD because thinking it's politics is part of the problem. I am a white woman and this makes me want to rip my hair out of my head and scream in people's faces, I cannot imagine what it is like to be a person of color trying to get people to see.

Reminding us all:

  1. That is such a great reminder & so true! So much has happened & changed in the last 6 months. I can't wait to see what the next 6 months bring!

  2. In the crate, Bruce Springsteen. Not on. In. Very similar, I can see your confusion.

  3. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on I'll be Gone in the Dark. She was such a bad ass. I failed on meal prepping this week, too, so I've been eating all the things. UGH.

  4. Good luck with Bruce, life is rough for a young pup. I am very unfocused in my reading right now and have 4 books started. I must stop. I'll be Gone in the Dark is one though and I feel like I need a little levity in between in. Which is why I have 4 books started. Our state's primary is this coming Tuesday so I've been a little less tuned in to national politics. Trump makes me want to throw things still though. I got to see Senator Merkley speak at our state convention this year, he is awesome.

  5. so much can happen in 6 that reminder. Thanks I needed to hear that today.

  6. Haha, that e-card. I keep thinking I should go to a Meetup or something and at least try to make more friends here, but then I remember I actually *like* sitting at home all by myself ;)

  7. I gave up on crating Ruby. She is simply not crateable (sp?).

  8. Yay!! Have fun with your girls this weekend!! It's like Blogger has no real web can't be that hard to fix the problem. LOL to socializing vs being at home. Have a great weekend!!

  9. I can't believe we are in June already, just goes to show how quickly 6 months come and go!

  10. seriously what is up with blogger comments. it's so weird!
    i have not picked up a kindle first book - i look each month but nothing jumps out at me.
    as always, perfect ecard. love the reminder too.

  11. That ecard is my life. I hope you have the best girls weekend! You will have to show us Bruce's pimped out crib when it is complete.

  12. Ah, more Bruce tales to come! I've never met Bruce, but I love that dog! He has made me chuckle on more than one occasion.

    Trump... Good God! He is like a child who takes his ball and goes home because the game wasn't going his way. I still cannot get over the amount of people in this country, the ding-dong who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue included, who fail to realize that our constitution affords everyone the right not to stand for the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance if we so choose. The choice is ours to stand or kneel or to stay in the locker room because that's freedom, plain and simple.

  13. I'm so annoyed that Blogger hasn't fixed the comments issue yet--how hard could it be???
    You know I agree with you 10000000000% on all things orange devil.
    The weather this week has been perfection--I want it to stay like this for weeks!!!

  14. What's going on with your comments? I can't even talk about Trump anymore...what's left to say?

  15. Yay girls weekend! Have SO much fun! Good luck with Bruce & the crate. Enzo wasn't super destructive as a puppy, but when we crated him he'd tear up the bed/blanket/curtains within chewing distance. He went bedless for 2 years. (I know that sounds mean, but he rarely spent a long period of time in there.) On his second bday we gifted him a bed and he hasn't put tooth to fabric since his youth :)
    tr*mp is a fucking moron. 6 months from now I hope that space we're all in is free of him.

  16. Enjoy girls weekend. Dump trump and all his sh*t and focus on self-care. We're going to need it in the weeks ahead. (Anyone else think something big is coming down the pike and that's why they are hiding Melania?)

  17. A girls weekend is always fun to look forward to! I'm so frustrated with the blogger comments situation. WTF? As for Trump, not going to express all the curse words in the world but another WTF? I can't even watch the news. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  18. Yay for girls weekend! Your meal prep situation has been my meal prep situation for the past 2 weeks, but sub popcorn for cheesy poofs. I did better this week but still have remarkably little to show for the sheer volume of groceries I bought last week... How does that happen??

  19. I love that quote about six months from now. We've had amazing sleeping weather here too. I hope Bruce likes the crate! Your posts about him on instagram always crack me up. Have an amazing girls weekend!

  20. I wonder how Bruce will take to the crate? Our dogs wouldn't tolerate it for a second...They stopped being destructive eventually though, so we can leave them out. Jett was pretty iffy that first year.
