Just over here making the best of this Snowmageddon Snowpocalypse, if you will and not go absolutely bat shit insane so let’s do a super post. I’d like to do something with all the pics I take and also am enjoying adding flickr to my phone so I can instant-upload plus there’s fun filters which I use to muck about with AGES ago but not via flickr that didn’t exist yet. I used this janky little photo site to edit and resize photos. I tried to make everything look like hyper-colour hipster party posters oh, don’t get me started.
Everyone adopted this method, my blog and others’ blogs were all populated with these crazy “arty” looks and all these camera dorks popped up out-dorking one another with photos of fire hydrants in shadows, sad-looking chicks with sick fashions, dark, vacant streets, birds, live music shows blown out by stage lighting… man those were the days.
You see my point.
I like how an effect on certain photos offers an instantly old-fashioned effect then you start remembering, feeling nostalgia, feeling things period. This is why we are, this is why we art.
I always found that writing was an escape for me but I stopped doing it and escaped into other things, common things. Netflix. Consuming dose after dose of garbage and cinematic art, input mode with little output. Cooking. Chopping things up into little squares, throwing my passions into that and refining it. I bet I have chopped a thousand onions since the pandemic began.
When I blog here or have before I picture people reading it and then I just keep typing until I start to feel too exposed but all I am talking about it seems like is nature trees leaves dirt and sunsets so why do I get in my head about it. Like, just do and don’t look back.
This November marked the 21st year of me blogging away which is cuckoo bananas to me but also awesome I am paying for my photo account and my server costs so may as well just keep at’er.
We have been living in a snow globe for awhile now it’s starting to feel like a simulation.
I believe it was Friday night, I actually can’t tell the days anymore, we walked down one of these streets in the snowstorm at night and kicked a little green ball I bought, we do what we can to occupy ourselves usually involving something fun and also we are very competitive.
The game was, kick it past that driveway and, call out that that’s how far you were going to kick it. Kick it past the stop sign, the tree, the foot print up ahead ahhaa. My right foot (ankle) is still healing somewhat I guess as its been sore from all this extra horseplay lately.
This is photographic evidence that I made it past the sign post, he didn’t believe me. See that plonk in the snow? Yeah that’s what I thought. Nice try.
It was truly coming down.
Valentine’s Day walk down to the bay, it was completely frozen over.
You can see the moon. Adorbs.
Before the sun went down.
We didn’t walk on it, not that stupid. Mighty tempting tho.
Those are some intense icicles yo.
It was fun having a quick chat with the die-hards ploughing and/or shoveling their driveways as we kicked the ball home. Yeah it’s gonna snow til Thursday skipping Tuesday which judging by the snow falling at present, was incorrect.
There’s just something magical about walking in the snow in the middle of the street there were very few motorists its got dreamy vibes. We saw a fox here too, he looked at us then disappeared beside a house, we forgot about him, then he looked at us again, a warning, then darted off. Maybe it was the same one who tracked me before, specifically ME, and then barked at me. We never heard a fox before, they squawk, it was so strange. He was warning me because I looked like a large threat with my fur hood and coat I am not even kidding it bee-lined right for me from across a parking lot trying to be all tough when normally they flee. Then when he was close enough he did all this bark-squawking, Jesus Christ (bf says more like a yip). I was trying to give him some feed or peanuts whatever I could grab first from in my purse and also wanted to film it at the same time but there was no time. I sure got told he barked and barked and barked at me while walking along this break-fence in the park and then took off. I was trying to be his friend! lol. There are lots of trees surrounding this park which is perfect fox territory so we were pumped to find a new little place to hang out at which the fox did not like.
We’ve had a couple tackling each other in the snow attempts but no snow jobs yet. Well actually I did kick some snow yesterday I can’t remember why but am sure he deserved it.
Okay I am done looking at snow pictures too. There has been a lot of this and the competition is leveling off wait I don’t know what that means I just mean I was smoking him in the beginning and now he’s learned from the best so it’s neck-and-neck in the polls. My Dad got us this other game for xmas we are going to crack open soon so wait to see it.
This was a good buy. Rather intense but perfectly so if you’re in the right mood for it, which we were and then there’s a college station on the radio that played all the same stuff so that was wicked.
I decorated for V Day weekend I am a sucker for a theme and a geek for holidates, all that crap.
Definitely one of the trashiest shirts I own given as a gift from a gf who couldn’t bear to wear it either I don’t think it fit her otherwise this is so up her alley haha.
Been attempting to limit all the things shown in this picture.
Okay I have hit a wall. Gonna have to To Be Continued this one, folks.
Another day, another pandemic adventure. Let’s take it from the top.
For those unfamiliars out there, this is the Skyway Bridge and it connects us to the Promised Land: Hamilton. It is windy as Hell when crossing it and can be quite treacherous so now here’s a quick story about that. One time a few years back on a very cold day in Feb, talking minus a lot can’t remember exactly but, it was frigid, and as we were coming back toward Burlington a van driving in the opposite direction’s roof carrier flew right off (because it was empty and the winds were so strong) so we braced ourselves because we knew it was coming right our way and going to land in our lane, specifically hit our windshield. It was mega-scary and there was absolutely nowhere to go. There were cars on either side of us and you could see them wavering a little bit and fully feel the intensity of the moment because everyone saw that thing flying the wind just took it. We didn’t realize yet that it was empty though and thank god it was and because it was so cold once that thing hit the highway it utterly exploded into shards of plastic completely shattering and obliterating it into nothing so all we could do was drive through the shrapnel just fine and dandy. It was hella-terrifying like something out of the Matrix sheer panic to instant-relief. I will never forget it…. like how cheap is a roof rack carrier for your skis and what-not that it shatters like glass upon impact with the road. It was that cold out and in hindsight we were so very lucky that it was I still have visions of it sailing up in the sky and a couple cars were able to dart by it before it was our turn for it to land directly in our path and then all this plastic smacking us in the windshield. Jesus.
We went to the ass-end of the beach for a laugh. I wanted to take post-apocalyptic-looking photos of Wild Waterworks which is obvi closed for 2020 and I hope they open again someday, I guess they were closed all summer. Wow I just realized it’s not even 2020 anymore.
This is a special place, kind of a relic. One summer, I must have been 7 or so, my mom and her friend Kim surprised all us kids by packing up a van and bringing us here. I skidded my bike into our driveway, yelled up to the kitchen window, and was like MOM LETS GO! (to swimming lessons) and mom’s head popped out and she says we’re not going today and I was hella miffed because I lived for that shit I would wake up at like 6am and sit on the couch with cartoons until swimming lessons that level of excitement.
But when I realised we were going here I LOST IT. I don’t even think we knew in the car ride, maybe we did, but once you see those waterslides as a kid your brain goes AHHHHH!!!!!! Total freak out. Their hours are stupid though because one summer we decided to go (as adults) and we killed time at the beach a bit then walked the hot deserted parking lot to WW and the girl at the check-in kiosk was like come back at 4 we’ll be open. FOUR O’CLOCK? Bruh how you gonna stay in business this way?
Wally World sadness vibes.
ya no u won’t. Seems like y’all been closed a long-ass time.
Mmm yum we’ll take all 6 I don’t even know what bottom right is.
and now for the magical part.
Hey guys, how you is? Honkity honk. Does anyone know anybody who has ever eaten a Canadian goose? Just curious…
Walked down there on the snow it was very hard and crunchy, icy. Since I’ve rolled my ankles pretty badly a few too many times I have to be careful doing the dumb things that I like to do.
So the day before we were watching that fruit loop swim in the lake and basically all of that week it was majorly cold and windy resulting in the water hitting the rocks freezing over into Narnia. Ice storms yo.
So scenic tho.
Love the details. My mom has a few photos published in a Toronto Star coffee table book about the ice storm of 2000-whatever in Oakville. I think I was in Holland at the time but anyway she’s got a keen eye and always seems to be in the right place at the right time.
I see you, cute little branches.
We have a trip planned for the weekend which we may likely cancel because of the weather conditions not gonna lie pretty bitter about it am very stir crazy right now and was looking forward to V Day weekend as am a suck hole and “I deserve it” lol goddamn Canadian winters.
Looks like some kind of dessert square edible.
Looks like some kind of dingdong.
Then we took a walk and happened upon this beautiful creation.
Love it love it love it.
The desire to smash icicles is strong but there’s not a chance in hell I’d ruin this beauty. Seasons in nature give us gifts to enjoy not destroy but the Devil in me definitely considered it.
Kissy kissy. NO I’m not fat or pregnant I’m wearing two pairs of pants and sweaters in that coat.
Just love to see it. It was warm in the sun this day but still chilly on your hands when you whip out your phone to take a picture of the fiftieth icicle installation that pops up.
Another fun thing about hiking and taking walkies is the other people who you pass and get to eavesdrop on and I am certain we give them a run for their money but it’s cute to pet their dogs and hear their chats and various dramas. I have always been curious about humans and sizing them up.
“Get a picture of me standing in this hole.”
Just when you think yer done you pass by this ridiculosity.
Okay not saying we invented it (but I kinda am) all these people started following suit when they saw what we were doing so I watched them take turns posing beside it knowing that icicles periodically fall down and make scary glass-breaking collapsing sounds so each photo pose results in a picture of terror and I stood there pretending I was none the wiser.
A bunch of shit shattered loudly while taking this one I would NOT want to get hit on the head with any of that nonsense hell no. We also fed a squirrel some nuts which was a major highlight GUYS I am going nuts!
Do you understand why I cry about missing summer all the friggin’ time now? We should be drinking Sangria from Barrangas here instead of this stupid winter walk lol.
Santa was motoring it and grooving along nicely.
Now that is some enduring beach grass I have the same picture of this spot but in the summer time.
You know your bf is a hick when he puts his gloves down and you don’t know where they went.
We went for another walk at La Salle afterward but you get the point there are only so many photos of swans I can post or take.
Have a good one y’all TGIF not that it matters anymore!
Here’s a cheeky pic from skating the other day too.
and one more dramatic selfie for the road xoxo Raymbo
I took MANY pictures of this so forgive me if I slightly duplicate-post one (or two).
And, there it is again more closer up. Was trying to get the ice off the rocks which is hard to do if you know anything about photography, back-lit, back-lit, nein nein nein.
And from above. We went for a nice walk the next day much further down the beach and those icicles were next-level which will be my next blog post WHICH will occur much sooner than the expanse of time between the last one and I am not even gonna promise that you can just wait and see it MFs.
Some ding dong, I bet he is Russian. He decided to Polar Bear dip himself in these subzero temps waters. I mean, my hands were badly frigid when I had my mitts off so I can only imagine what Scuba Steve was feeling in there and luckily he was wearing a wet suit replete with the… head part. It was ridiculous. People were concerned and I think he actually made the news the day before because people were so freaked out by it. Like they say cold showers are good for your system, this bro took it to a whole new level.
I’d do it for a cool grand and even then have reservations but this guy is living his best winter life for free. Someone came upon us on the shore and said oh is your friend coming around there? We could see his wavelengths ripples appearing I said no not our friend but what a LUNATIC!
bf got a sheet of ice from one of the rocks we were going to do an IG boomerang of him smashing it but it all crumbled in his hands and fell between the rocks before we could film it hahaha. It was nice to see people copying us as we left, smashing ice and rocks on the ice. Forever young.
We walked on some of this ice beneath the bridge and I obvi got spooked out and abandoned the idea. Love me some hometown graffiti always.
One post at a time but this one just gets me jazzed about the next one I’m gonna do. Can you believe at the height of my blog fame I would post 3 times daily and then make time for discourse in the comments it was like THE place to be.
Try and walk over that.
and the man of the hour… like why not just walk to shore? is the difficulty degree the point of it all? What are you training for?
Just brilliant. Kudos. Anyone not understanding how cold it is in Canada right now and particularly last week it’s kind of a Polar Vortex so the absurdity of getting in this water right now for a wee cheeky swim is is majorly high.
This is James Bond-level shit.
More ice tra-la-la.
We have the same view from our balcony just a little further down a ways. View-splaining.
I am tellin’ ya mate this was a cold time. We did a hike with our friend earlier in the day and were on our way home but decided to do a quickie look-see because you can only stay inside so much. The answer is snow pants or double pants if you’re gonna get thru winter. I hate the cold. HATE IT.
Someone adorable is a smooth glass collector-placer in these parts I found many piles of glass set-up the water is constantly flowing and smoothing over the garbage glass people chuck about and nature does its work and someone makes a class statement about it. Use what you’ve got eh.
One more picture snap for the road.
and one more pic of me with a pink hair filter on for fun.
Plus a dramatic picture of my Nana who just turned 90. Bless her.
Hey guys! In order to attempt to change the never-ending toxic media reportage narrative of the dumpster fire what is going down in the States right now (and the fact that I haven’t blogged in over 2 months) I hereby proffer an update on the ol RTM page-o-rama — where escapism is a good thing.
Over the summer on our way back from Huntsville we traveled home via Gravenhurst to visit Currie’s, as one of us is deep in the throes of a wicked vinyl addiction and as for me, I just like eclectic junk.
Each inch of this store is photographable and u know how I do.
Our friend’s band, oooh starstruck!
My bf didn’t move from this spot while I managed to comb the entire store and take pics I had to drag him to the back in fact just to gander at what I had found. We had an hour until the place was going to close.
The vinyl thing has rubbed off on me a little bit sow now I am bitter we didn’t buy this WTF??
Okay enough records let’s go scope out the weirder stuff.
There’s a few epic music rooms scattered throughout Currie’s…
Molasses drop cookies recipe from the turn of the century.
outdated likely out of print cook books.
Muskoka Dry gingerale was a thing.
As I made it to this point bf is still standing in the same spot.
I used to go to Thorah Island quite a bit so finding this treasure was elating.
You can only get there from boat from Beaverton…
There’s wolves on the island that get there over the frozen ice and even a sunken jeep that didnt make it over the ice it’s a whole other world the cars on the island are old beaters like your back-up island wheels, love it.
I always feels a little bittersweet when I look back at my pics of things I didn’t buy but then again wtf am I going to do with this hat, start the next Stone Temple Pilots?
My mind wanders at the thought of how one procures a Kentucky State police hat.
Can’t forget the little tchotchkes now.
Someplace out there a man cave yearns for its boxing machine.
Suffice to say I spent a lot of time in this room.
Sensory overload, what would your eyes rest upon first?
Yes my Queen.
And more records.
Oh Howard Hughes…
The set-up here impresses I took this picture for a facebook header photo.
It was a fun trip back through time.
When people DIY their fave cartoon characters I love it they always look creepy and funny as hell.
Feeling it, feelin’ it.
Yes I played with them.
A few regrets in not buying is present here.
Not bad to look at.
Douglas Coupland romanticizes nostalgia big time, one of my fav authors, I get it.
What in the hell is a tin roof?
I’ll just leave that there.
I could just not stop capturing things good thing we ate Harvey’s before there is nothing more irritating than waiting around hangry and hovering.
Apologies for the lapse in updates I wish you all a Happy 2021 too btw and what a crazy year to type out oit’s the Mad Max year now and sure does feel like it.
Okay these guys I like.
It’s a Dad thing.
and that’s that howdy-doo if ur passing thru the big G-hurst go say hi, see y’all around xo raymes
Good LORD it has been awhile, “sorry” and you don’t care either way yo hello what is up? I guess we’ll do some sort of wrap-up catch-up now then.
It’s a gorgeous one out there today gonna fire this off super quick then hit the town. It’s going to be even hotter on the weekend. Righteous!
Sweet deal around the corner from us going on right now def grabbing again before it expires for good. It’s nice to take a night off from cooking too. Starting to make the same crap all the time it gets tiring too.
The party light came out Halloween night super trippy fun dance party playing lots of records.
This was THE scariest thing ever he jumps out at you all these amazing terrifying installations I’m talking PRO-level my GOD you must check it out next year these people are nuts like a whole row of them compete with their crazy scary houses it was bananas. Tarantulas on censors jump out at you oh man I hit the roof hahaha.
Made the randomest of costumes it came together alright we were hanging in our friend’s backyard and the temperature legit dropped and we had run out of firewood too these are thermal pants but started to get chilled to the bone which is why today’s hot weather is super interesting!
Got burritos crushed them by the lake on another cold as hell night windy spooky too cold to hang around too long though we try.
That wind off the lake bruh boy she strong from here on out I am going to just tell you the temperature of each picture.
oh noes the feets ahh I die. Mike said you could pretty much just touch it so I was like okay but then the bunny definitely did NOT want that haha nice try.
Love it. All that sparkly Christmas extra-ness yessssssssuh.
Like obviously someone needs this in their house.
This is me blinking in Christmas land.
So many people messaged me about this place asking where it is what it is I am like bro can you handle it it’s Christmas old lady heaven in there plus farm animals AND a restaurant supermarket.
Omg I love this no shame or irony whatsoever.
*faints*. I think it’s the collector side to a person, the desire to possess trinkets and what-not.
I picked these up a little while ago they’re dead now am thinking of what I want next flowers cheer and class a place up, no?
Distorted because had to zoom in to capture all the lights-action. A phone upgrade would resolve this issue.
This one is my fav. The owner came out cos we were all milling around the property she said we scared her it was funny but I was also like well your front lawn is a horror show people gonna flock. Speaking of horror show, how bout that election hey? Yikes.
Dave Chappelle and Letterman. SO GOOD.
That’s Barfy. We love him quite possibly her, I dunno I get boy vibes but he reckless so maybe then he’s a woman? Lol who knows. He’s been MIA the last couple visits so I hope all is good.
Okay cashing out my chips now I bid you adieu we’ll meet again soon have a good one xo!
Hi guys! have I got an exciting post for you listen up geeks! SO much exclamations!!
This is one of my new ITshirts it is adorable the front has a bunch of cute gibberish coding on it too. I have a vast and varied tech bg (heck I am writing code for this damn blog post too sorry I sound so defensive I was born that way!) as I use to work for a tech agency for a few years and one of the guys there invented ITshirts so we decided to do a Raymi thing on it, groundbreaking I know.
Well anyway, he is snarky as hell and has injected that humour into these geeky one-of-a-kind (free shipping on orders passed $29!) masterpieces – tshirts, mugs, other swag and I am all about it whenever I come up with a Raymism I paint it immediately and merchandise the fucking shit out of it so everyone knows that that’s YOUR quote it’s undeniable but anyway enough about me. God it’s just so hard not to shut the fuck up sometimes see, there’s another shirt (oh how I wish). Well anway, ITshirts are great T-shirts for Techies, Nerds, Geeks and Gamers! There I said it.
did’er a little photoshoot there around the building it was fun and funny when people were waiting for the elevator and we made the lobby chair area our own personal studio. You always know when someone is watching you and can time it exactly when they’re going to look again. It’s mentally-exhausting being a hawk eyes but anyway I had a vision and actually there is one more location or two to do in the building, some of the hallways have a posh hotel vibe soft yellow lighting… you’ll see.
Yes also if you have any questions as always allow me… sorry I do the “…” ellipses all the time it is a bad habit I picked up from an older colleague it’s a boomer thing and so lazy grammatically but effective so I choose it.
The last time my bf modeled was as a teenager I think we nailed it the models on the ITshirts site are pretty pro like stockphoto pro haha so we needed to nail it let’s give him a hand good job babe. – actually he never modeled he said he just got hosed HAHAHAHHA
Geeks like drinking beer because they are so stressed out from all of that work so we used that as a prop and not actually as normally habitual laundry accompaniment refreshment no no no way not that at all..
Nerds like talking a lot so if they are drinking beer and it’s Craft you better get the Hell out of there before you’re cornered and it’s too late omg if I never hear a Craft beer mansplanation ever again it will be too soon. jkjk we have gone to lots of breweries I have been converted but still, keep those factoids to a minimum there bud I got shit to do.
Top Gun glasses (a must) from Dollar Tree one of my favourite stores. Doesn’t he look like De Niro in Taxi Driver?
Okay maybe just a little bit it’s the Military green shirt which this I LOVE IT WHEN THEY CALL ME BIG DATA design is available in (as well as other colours) which is also a Notorious B.I.G. play on words but you knew that because you’re cool – every shirt has something punny involved, classic geek humour obvi.
The UI is dope and easy to navigate while shopping AND the holidays are coming up school is back phase 3’s upon us time to strut your opinions out on the town the people got to know that YOU know what’s up and speaking of that there’s a #BLM tshirt too.
Awesome. I also like the #GRL CODER one and the DEVS RULE one if I were a DEV then I’d get it love the RUN DMC vibes if a dev saw me out in the wild wearing a devs rule shirt do you know how much bullshit talking I’d have to do to get out of that?
And I’d get this in True Royal Blue because blonde and blue is like peas and carrots when I wear a blue shirt I see people fainting in the streets at my colour compositioning.
Okay I am going to order this one too I have decided Lorem sounds like Lauren and I am into alter-egos so plus I am a actually raging fuckin geek (but a cool one, they can be rare) which is why I make fun of nerds so much projection is everything. I remember we had a debate about the differences between nerds and geeks and it got scary lol.
Always wear your masks down in the laundry lots of old bitches up in that joint can’t be compromosin’ ‘em!
LOL I love it. Eye contact, eye contact, thank you.
Ok let’s do the glasses and really smart this up. He said he wore these on a work trip to look smarter intelligent (but yes also for reading) but mostly the former. I will need to check to see if that’s okay to say here. I do the same with my glasses too or to hide looking tired.
An ITshirt is the perfect thing to wear while patiently waiting for your next order of ITshirts and other Amazon garbage! Which reminds me, we are low on bath bombs babe A woman came in and sat on this bench and watched us for awhile so we kept shooting all professional and stuff you can honestly bullshit your way into anything in life if I haven’t taught you anything after all these years reading my blog please at least let me teach you that if you can just act like you think this person is suppose to be then others will believe you like look at televangelists and other scam artist two-bit hustlers anyone can make it baby you just got to believe! Anyway I have an issue with shyness sometimes it just gets in the way but you have to say fuck it and keep rolling.
and that’s a wrap *Austin Powers voice* cheers babes. Use PROMOCODE: RAYMI15OFF at checkout to save some dollars in your little pockets there and send me your ITshirts selfies please stay tuned ever always forever your pal RAYMI xoxo.
Once upon a time not too very long ago we played paddy-paddy-pancake with Caneggs Protein Pancake Mix for my bloggo here. Here is how it went!
This is all you need. Plus water. Or milk. Even chocolate milk. Or almond milk, whatever floats yer boat any liquid at all really. We added banana, strawberries, peanut butter m&m’s, and chocolate chips. These pancakes are so delicious and healthy it really is a power food and so easy to make because the eggs are inside the powder mix all ready to go. The less steps needed and mess, the happier we’ll be.
My beloved instagram bf and assistant, ain’t he cute. We only bickered for half the time haha mwah <3. Also that shirt tho... I have an inappropriate joke about it if you stretched your mind you could surmise what it be.
kk for measurement do equal parts liquid to your caneggs pancake mix. We did half water plus half milk (for the health and fluffiness factor).
The package looks like this.
and it looks like so in a measuring cup #mindblowing.
we started out mixing by hand then realised that wasn’t gonna work so got the hand-mixer out which you’ll want in order to get out the lumps in your batter but if you don’t have one that’s fine, you’ll get some nice muscle-tonage of your pipes instead.
Pancake one is a go. The second weekend we made pancakes for bf’s son with chocolate chips we learned that you don’t even need butter to grease the (non-stick) pan and it will turn out PERFECTLY and yes there is picture proof of that so keep going.
Who is to even know when you add your strawberries or blueberries exactly? I just wing it and pop them in when it feels right.
Then the next conundrum, when to flip’er?
She ain’t pretty she just looks that wayyyyy. Name that jam.
You can tell it’s healthy because it has that rubbery texture quality to it. This mix ain’t just flour and garbage nahm sayin’?
Banananananana time. This one was so good to go ripe bro.
I love photographing food I dunno if you could tell or…
Peanut butter (m&m’s) and banana go together like peas and carrots and I am a genius.
oooh squad it got the crispy burn on it dawg.
Then you plate them and feel like a Martha Stewart except her instagram food photo skills are not that hot so I have heard and seen. I basically know every useless fact that there is to know.
Not bad for a first crack at it.
bf puts peanut butter on everything and has a rapid metabolism it’s not fair, he will eat cookies with peanut butter on them for breakfast before we even make breakfast then eat that too.
This is when the bickering magic happens he says my beauty is not important I say yes it is because people are hyper-critical of you online, it is about the product and how you showcase it. If I am happy in how I look then I am more passionate about the post. While I do commend him and he is actually quite right, I am too. Who would want to look at a blog post with me as a hot sweaty angry stressed-out mess? Nobody. Do I want to get roasted eternally? Am I hyper-critical of myself from years of being criticized um duhh.
Normally when I do us breakfast I haven’t done my hair or makeup yet and look like a Gargoyle so it was annoying to have to do that for y’all so if we’re gonna photograph it then we’re gonna get it cute THE FIRST TIME.
I am also dieting like an m’f’er so showing my belly is, brave. See in my face just trying to get through this hahaha.
Gonna be doing a cookbook too so hopefully I will have a six-pack of abs and be shredded by then. I’m actually going to use my magic bullet for the first time after this post and smoothie it up.
Here is what that perfect pancake looks like I told you about previously. No butter, no fuss. We got this pan from fortinos fyi. We went halves on it hahaha.
Hiya pals here I am blah blah and we’re just more than midway through July summer be flyin’ I hope you’re making the most of it. If you’re a long time Raymitheminx reader you know that I whine and lament about summer here often and despise those who can’t wait for fall (yes I love fall too) but what I do not get is that they do not get that winter comes immediately after and then lasts for six months so why would you wish for that and not just enjoy the short-ass summer, appreciate and accept it for what it is (melty and arduous for some) and then as the days get colder, you’ll have your fall. I dunno do you like snow? Dealing with it, layers, chapped hands, and all? Are you a masochist?
Anywaaaaaaaaay just gonna go ahead and unapologetically enjoy summer and try not to trash on fall and winter too much here.
Life is so balls-to-the-wall high octane next level lit right now in fact we go for walks hunting cats then hang out with those cats for as long as they will allow. This little bastard scratched me too and drew blood. Far out.
We cat-whispered him on over and just chilled for a little while there’s a few ginger cats near us so starved for animal love literally hanging in parking lots with these little furry idiots. If it’s free and it’s fun, so down.
this only makes me want to go see him again now. We have another cat “friend” we call Barfy because the first time we saw him he just looked at us and proceeded to upchuck the most grossest upheaval of god knows what and we have since come to learn he’s quite a vicious hunter we saw him with a fucking rabbit in his mouth wtf! He lives in a party house on the corner so is like always out and about left to his own devices he comes right to me when I call, I feel proud about that.
This is Garbage Surprise as we call it or “mmm delicious garbage” I don’t waste money on food as much as I use to although it can be fun or “a treat” I love to cook and am making up for the years off taken from it. I like being a food scientist and making well, yeah, garbage, lol. Leftovers are great too, repurposing, smothering on hot sauces and other spices voila you get it I am sure.
Butter chicken (turkey) this one I would not call garbage surprise. You gotta change it up.
I liked the composition. bf made breakfast this day and it shows.
roots are so long rn ughhh time flies.
Interesting hair day. I uploaded these many days ago it’s hard to pause and pick up again on things did days ago like oh did I post that cloud yet let me go back and check meanwhile NO ONE CARES either way.
It seems we go here more often than we do but whatever it’s a good spot great views not many people around and last time we caught a model airplane guy flying all his toys, bonus entertainment he had his door open the entire time he killed his car battery so then we got to hear him call CAA and then they showed up we were in hysterics trying to act cool and chill.
Then the deer came out and watched us watching them weren’t very spooked at all I even busted out some of my cute animal calling noises and one wandered over DEER WHISPERER EXTREEEEEME.
yeah it’s been an interesting summer for hair I suppose for all of us…
This was a fun night and ended up crashing in the tiny home after herding some sheep and chickens. Just absolutely passed out hard realising we didn’t “need” to leave so why not. Also we went down for a nap and you know how that goes!

It was perfectly country and relaxing thanks for having us!
