A Dab of This and That Ramble

 
Just a "quick ramble" to let you know I am still around.
 Sometimes other things happen in life and we need to change our priorities.
 Praying all the "unexpected goings on"  will settle down to a much smoother ride in life very soon. 
**********
 I purposely did not post an explanation about my "semi hiatus" from the land of blog, due to privacy reasons (concerns someone else).  However, I want to say a "Very Special Thanks" to those that inquired about my absence and as a result sent their much appreciated prayers and healing thoughts.  You will never know how much they mean - Thank You!!!  I am in the process of answering emails, etc. and hope to be caught up in the very near  future.
 
****** 
The "Nitty Gritty" of everyday "stuff" !
Long list of "to dos" while out and about playing catch up on errands,  one of which is get that nasty car washed!  We all know the one - looks like a dust bunny rolling down the street. You have to turn on the windshield (even on a sunny day)  to clear a space so you can see where you are going.     First stop - pulled up and a luxury car is parked just outside of the exit of the carwash with all of the car doors open, and a man  (appeared to be the owner and was NOT happy), and another person with a clipboard with pen in hand appeared to be inspecting the car and writing a report.  Rolled down the window and asked if it was out of order and was told that "there has been  an incident".  Turned around and moved on, ran another errand and stopped at another car wash and the entrance was blocked - out of order.
Guess I will continue to drive around in a dirty car! So if you see something traveling down the road that looks like a very large dust bunny - it may just be me!
******
 DO NOT put mayo on my muffuletta !!!  While out I stopped for a sandwich to go. Muffuletta and a side of potato salad  - have not had one in a while (due to salt over load). Got home turned on computer, grab a bottle of water, sat down to eat, took a big bite of the sandwich ....What is that?!? Lifted the top half of the bread and there was a thick layer of mayo on top of a very small amount of olive salad !  Good grief - Stop messing with the real deal!    Make note - Call restaurant manager!
*****
Why is it we crave certain things to eat at odd times - especially late at night?  I have done that a lot recently   - NO!!!! I am not.....Get that thought out of your head!!!!!!!!!
For some reason I have been craving things like turtle pie, cheesecake, etc.   What is unusual about this?   Given a choice - I nearly always prefer savory (not sweet).  I have been really super stressed out recently so don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.  I did pick up a 2 slice pkg. of turtle pie at the grocery and indulged, but think I would have satisfied the craving more had I bought the whole pie and cut my own size serving. :)
******
Temps in mid to high 90's all week, so may be a good time to get caught up on a few things around the Dab of This and That abode - maybe!

Just another Dab of This and That ramble.
Have a great week!

Thanks for filling us in on all that's been going on. Oh yes, all those little annoyances like a dirty car and late night cravings. If it makes you feel better, I'm suffering from those same two problems. I crave crunchy salty and I'm waiting for a new windshield wiper fluid holder to come in.

Sorry, Glenda I didn't miss you because I've been AWOL myself! Hope things are settling down for you now. I'm gearing up for my first jewelry show and back to homeschooling for one of my chickadees. Help!

We finally took our car to the car wash over the weekend. It had been a while, but then we've had so much rain there really wasn't any point to it.

Glad to see a post from you!

So glad things are looking up, Glenda, and that you are back to blogging. We just got our cars washed too. They were really dirty!!

I hope everything is better now. I have been away from blogging myself and am trying to catch up. My car was hit in the Walmart parking lot a few weeks ago and I'm like thinking ... once she hit it the first time why didn't she stop??? Anyway I got a new car but really wasn't looking for one. Your summer sounds like mine ... stressful :( It's gonna get better!
Hugs,
Donna

So glad life is treating you and yours better now. Now, I'm so curious about what happened to the luxury car at the car wash! My car isn't very dirty right now, but tree sap dripped on the window, and I need to refill my squirter thingy, so if you see me coming, you'd better get out of the way! I'm sad to say, I crave sweets all of the time! laurie
